IN POLITICS, ALL TRUTHS ARE UNSPEAKABLE:

Nader's invokes race to criticize Obama (Domenico Montanaro, 6/25/08, NBC First Read)

In an interview with the Rocky Mountain News, Ralph Nader says this on Obama:

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader said.


Fear and Loathing (Howard Kurtz, 6/25/08, Washington Post)
Was Charlie Black right?

Did he simply commit the political sin of saying something that is unspeakably true?


An inability to discuss the fact that John Kerry is no more palatable in mocha and that no one would be willing to trust a vacuous neophyte like Senator Obama in a war has served the Democrats poorly, even though it is they who impose this speech code.

Hey Ralph, Obama isn't half African-American, he's half African and half American, or if you prefer, half black and half white.

The speech code is for your own good. Since you inferior beings are likely to be fooled by the evil conservatives to vote against your own interest, the progressives have to impose speech code so that you and fellow nitwits would not be conned to "think" and vote against your own best interest.
