Double Face Palm with a Headdesk

Just when you think it can’t get no more stupider, a Prog proves you wrong. Jonathan Chait:

The Real Reason ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Works

The key thing is that Obama is angry, and he’s talking not in his normal voice but in a “black dialect.” This strikes at the core of Obama’s entire political identity: a soft-spoken, reasonable African-American with a Kansas accent. From the moment he stepped onto the national stage, Obama’s deepest political fear was being seen as a “traditional” black politician, one who was demanding redistribution from white America on behalf of his fellow African-Americans.

    how long has he been stupid???
    this guy makes Forrest Gump look like a Rhodes Scholar

    backtrack never lived in Kansas = no Kansas accent
    backtrack uses fake black preacher accent only in front of black audience

      I think Lola observed that he might do it when he is stoned as he is changing personalities to be cool. My best guess is pharmaceuticals. That might appear normal also to Monsieur Chait.

    Now that’s embarrassing. Just when you think they can’t fall any further down, the surprise you.

    His deepest political fear should have been being outted as the racist, asshole, idiot he really is! Too late! 👿

    I’m going to retweet my concern trolls. First one up is someone who thinks Obama’s car getting stuck in London a few years ago is not as embarrassing as Romney ! Um’kay 😀

    They keep trying to blame his sneering, nasty, elitism on being black? Gee, I thought it was because he was a sneering,nasty, elitist scold that says incredibly stupid things that offend people. The fact that Monsieur Chait thinks what he is saying is OK means he is too. He might try leaving Manhattan for a day trip if he isn’t afraid he will get a clue.

    Obama is a man of few words:

    Six words – “The private sector is doing fine”

    Four words – “You didn’t build that”

    Two words – “It worked”

    My own twist on CT’s latest headline (as posted on Yellar Dawg’s blog):

    “RE The Confluence: No One Cares”

  10. not meaning to sound juvenile, BUT——–I’ve met Jonathan Chait and he impressed me as the kind of ugly pimply-faced, greasy looking nerd who never got the kind of playground recognition he thought he deserved. But he’s smart so he’s been taking it out on the rest of us ever since. Total smirky goon in person. Blech…….

    BTW—–not to dump on nerds per se. I’ve been married 40 years to the greatest nerd I know!!! I think they’re sexy…..(but not Chait—-blech!!)

    off topic
    my new hero , I would vote for this guy in a heartbeat. he gets it

    Do you remember the bushies making excuses for Bush during his second term? This reminds me of that. And also the writer skillfully plays the race card at the same time. Dumb and dumber. When O said that, he was in the ‘preecha’ mode. Not angry at all.

    National Review:

    I don’t think liberals appreciate how much conservatives laugh at this stuff. We’re constantly being told we’re racists and that conservatism is full of racist codes and dog whistles aimed at conservatives. And yet the only people who consistently decipher these codes or hear these dog whistles are liberals themselves. Most of the time it’s a form of projection of course. Liberals see themselves as sinless and heroic on matters racial, so their opposite numbers in politics must be sinful and villainous on matters of race. It’s a form of lazy categorical thinking that completely fails to take account of reality in order to sustain a self-serving narrative.
