You literally can’t win with some liberals. Oppose Barack Obama on the basis of his destructive policies, and you’re raaacist. Support Herman Cain for any reason, and you’re still a raaaacist. Why, it’s almost as if some people are just waiting to throw down the race card at every imaginable opportunity.
Garofalo: “Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same.
“People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.’”
Wait — isn’t that attitude what propelled Obama through the Democratic primary?
