These days, people say "Season's Greetings," which, when you think about it, means nothing. It's like walking up to somebody and saying "Appropriate Remark" in a loud, cheerful voice.

Two Hilariously Looney Accusations of Racism Against GOP

*subhead*Ha.*subhead*
I try not to do too many stories where I'm pointing out media bias because it's such a foregone conclusion that it's not worth even mentioning. But sometimes it's just so mind bendingly hilarious that I share it with you just for a good laugh.

This exchange from MSNBC via Weasel Zippers:
MARTIN BASHIR: We have seen an early draft of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s forthcoming oration. Can I quote something from you? “For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation’s problems, he hasn’t been working to earn re-election. He has been working to earn a spot on the PGA Tour.” How about that?

LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: Well, we know exactly what he’s trying to do there. He is trying to align to Tiger Woods and surely, the — lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth. They find every way they possibly can to –
How absolutely wacko is that?

Hey, the way I see it is that it's pretty incredible that America's gotten to the point where mentioning golf is stereotyping black people. Who'd a thunk it?

And now this next one which, if you can believe it is actually stupider than Lawrence O'Donnell. Chris Matthews on Hardball is talking with NY Mag writer John Hielemann, according to TheRightNewz.
Matthews: “They keep saying Chicago, by the way, you noticed?”
Heilemann: “Well, there’s a lot of black people in Chicago”
So now Republicans aren't allowed to mention one of the largest cities in America because that's racist.

So remember golf courses and Chicago are racist. I guess the GOP should just talk about basketball and Atlanta so nobody will get offended.

Every word the GOP says is racist including "A", "An", and "The". Or something ... ... ...

This still doesn't beat the NYT on Mitt's coded hair.
I don't know about in other places but you cant go into a barber shop in my town and get 'hair that reminds people of an America before black people had full equality'.

@Sand Mama: not a barber shop, but some Native American kids where I live wear their hair in a style first recorded in the 16th century, called a tsiyeel (a figure-8 bun wrapped in white yarn)—it not only reminds them of a time before black people had full equality, it reminds them of a time before they'd met any black people! (The Navajo word for black people means "swarthy Mexicans", the first blacks they met having been from Mexico.)

But that's not why they wear it; they wear it for religious reasons. Hey, wait, how come the New York Times isn't calling out the Hasidim on their peyos? Those are from before the Civil Rights Movement, too!
