Not Malignant


The Er-er-er-er-erator

We’re being told race is in issue in the upcoming presidential election, but only insofar as “white” people will be unable to bring themselves to vote for a “black” guy. Most white voters, say some pundits, would love to vote for Obama, only an inherent, unconscious “racism” holds them back from making the preferred choice.

You know the famous story about Evelyn Waugh, who, upon hearing that surgeons had removed a benign tumor from his friend, Randolph Churchill, joked that it was typical of modern medicine “to find the only part of Randy that was not malignant and remove it.”

Well, it is typical of political punditry to focus on the one thing about Obama that is not malignant and call it his only handicap.
