This has to be one of the most absurd things Keith Olbermann has ever said:
“The Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens tonight with Scott Brown tonight, whether he wins or comes close, is a repudiation of Obama policies, and surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is that it’s okay to have this sea change in American history, to have an African-American President. Is this vote to any degree just a euphemism the way state’s rights was in the 60s?”
Let me see if I understand. Obama’s race isn’t a fact, but a policy? That doesn’t make sense… unless you’re trying to imply that people who vote against Obama’s policies are necessarily racist. See, now they’re not just people who disagree with him. They disagree with him on everything, including whether or not his racial makeup should preclude him from the presidency.
Nevermind that Obama carried Massachusetts 62% to 36% in the 2008 presidential elections. They’ve all suddenly turned back their clocks to the 60s and are voting to spite black people.
Man, fuck you. Not everything is an epic struggle with menacing undertones. Sometimes we just have shitty presidents that promote a shitty agenda, and people vote for the person who campaigns against that agenda.
