    I wish the networks would do that for every sporting event.

    Atlanta Dream beat the Indiana Fever today. They each have a win in the semifinals, so it’s going to come down to the third game at Conseco Fieldhouse on Tuesday. I’m going! I love living in Indianapolis!

    Sarah Palin Can Square the William F. Buckley and Rush Limbaugh Rules For a Republican Primary

    If Republicans are indeed not enthused about Messrs. Perry and Romney, one candidate could be primed to enter the race who can square the Buckley rule of electing the most electable conservative with the Limbaugh rule of electing the most conservative person in the field.

    That candidate is former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Seems obvious. But the party would rather have Obama just like in 2008, so they wouldn’t be on her side.

    Michael Vick had a concussion and now he’s got a broken hand. Bad karma.

  9. WMCB says:

    Well, at least she is openly admitting that the race card is a deliberate strategy, not truth:

    Sadly, NOT an exaggeration…

    Question: Will branding the tea party ‘racist’ work as a political strategy?

    [Berry’s] Answer: “Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”

    Berry’s offensive and infuriating statements, while wholly unsurprising coming from a leftist, are thankfully not going unanswered. Project 21, the African-American conservative leadership network, offers this retort:

    “This is exactly the kind of thing that has irked me all of my adult life, to put it mildly,” said Project 21 member R. Dozier Gray. “This willful and purposeful use of the race card for nothing more than political gain is toxic to race relations, and Mary Frances Berry must know that. But she evidently does not care. Based on her comment, political posturing takes primacy over whatever real issues regarding race that she might pretend are her calling cards. I have seen this all before. I find it shameful.”

    BTW, crawdad – GayPatriot is an excellent blog with extremely intelligent commenters. A lot more savvy and diverse group than, say, Log Cabin Rebublicans. If I want to get the views, beefs, and concerns of more conservative gay people (yeah, they DO exist), It’s where I go. You may want to add it to your “the other side of the story” links.

    • ralphb says:

      Pardon the expression but bullshit. Mary Frances Berry is not playing the race card here. What she is doing is telling the truth about what the strategy is and has not advocated it herself.

      When she was on the US Civil Rights Commission, Mary was as honest a broker as they had and was no favorite of the administration or the democrats. GayPatriot seems to have slandered a good person in their zeal to put out their own progaganda.

      Which part of that statement has not been true to now?

      • ralphb says:

        The question asked of her at Pathetico was: will branding tea party ‘racist’ work??

        • WMCB says:

          Yes. And she said it was an effective strategy. But she did not go on to condemn that strategy that I can see – she didn’t verbally endorse it either, but she certainly seems to accept it.

      • WMCB says:

        Ralph, I didn’t post it to smear Berry. I posted it as an example of someone on the left actually telling the truth: Yes, it’s a deliberate strategy.

        And frankly, she may be a wonderful person who has done great things. But I don’t see her in this conversation condemning in any way the harmful use of race in that calculated manner. Someone as concerned and genuine about civil rights as she seems in truth to be…. perhaps should.

        As for slander – what part of what the GayPatriot poster said is untrue?

      • Three Wickets says:

        Berry is pretty accurate here on the race baiting during 2008 during and around South Carolina. She doesn’t condemn the behavior though. She talks about what Axelrod, Obama, and the campaign surrogates did, but again she does not condemn it. That’s not good enough imo.

    • Lola-at-Large says:

      Why is the Gay Patriot harping on a Politico post that is over a year old?

      Don’t get me wrong, I like GP, and follow him on Twitter, as well as read his blog occasionally, but it appears he’s jumped the shark on this one.

      • WMCB says:

        Perhaps because all the stuff that has gone on the past couple of days with Cain brought it to mind?

        I agree that it would have been better if he’d pointed that out, though: “Remember that Berry admitted a year ago it was a deliberate strategy..” Something like that.

        • Three Wickets says:

          She needs to say “race-baiting is a deliberate strategy, and it is wrong.” She didn’t say it in 2008, and she’s not saying it today.

  10. Yayy! Open thread! Here, have some “New” Wave from 1983.

    Well, this song is new to me, anyway. I only found it on YT a few months ago. :mrgreen:

  11. DandyTiger says:

    Packers win. Me and the lawn got drunk.

  12. Since the subject of, ahem, stimulant devices came up obliquely on the “Obama channels a black preacher” thread, I thought I’d post this.

    NSFW! 😈
