…and I don’t think he realizes he’s either. Sullivan, on This Week, this week, claimed that if Virginia and Florida switch back to the GOP in November then “It’s the confederacy.” Which means essentially nothing since Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and FDR won the “confederacy” as well. Watch the clip. He’s pulling out what ever race cards he has left up his ass. He then is forced to unpack this inanity by George Will and essentially pushes the argument that white 2008 Obama voters in those 2 states who’ll switch to Romney this time became racist (again?) over the course of the last 4 years.
Note that this condescension to white voters (who don’t actually think and decide in Sullivan’s world.) is the cousin of how the rich white Left looks at black Americans, who are analyzed and discussed through the prism of a rich white liberal narrative as if they don’t think either.
At their core Sullivan’s assumptions about white voters are, of course, racist. Sullivan doesn’t see people. He sees skin color, then jumps to conclusions. White swing voters in 2012 are NOT making decisions based on their outlook, opinions or concerns. They are polling for Romney because he’s white. Ignore how they voted in 2008 please. It doesn’t work in the current plot.
I’d like to interject here the point I’ve been making for years: Obama POD PEOPLE like Sullivan are deranged. Sullivan, like most Obama Pod People, can accept that Obama makes performance mistakes or communication mistakes but simply can not allow any argument against him on qualifications or his ability to govern. It’s not possible for any white voter to be disappointed with Obama. The only explanation possible is latent racism. This belief is constricted and false to the point of being a neurosis lilting over into a psychosis. It’s like trying to logically prove to an asylum resident that he’s not Napoleon. A thousand pale-faced Obama 08 voters could look Sullivan in the eye, logically go point by point with their reasons for voting Romney this time using facts, charts, bar graphs – the works. Sullivan would only see racism. It is deranged.
Sullivan is deranged.
Of course, for Romney supporters his mental fart is good news. The idiocy he pulled out of his arse today is a sure sign they know they’re in trouble. Because of Obama Pod People like Sullivan the race card is now a very tired bad joke told at the dinner table by a crazy uncle with bad breath. Eye rolls ensue. Followed – eventually – by someone losing it and screaming “SHUT THE F#@* UP ALREADY! WE’VE HEARD THIS SHIT FOR 4 YEARS AND IT’S FALSE AND OFFENSIVE!”
If we lived in the horribly racist country the rich, liberal left insists still exists everywhere we would NEVER have elected a half black man named Barack Hussein Obama in the first place. That’s a fact.
