Downhill Racers

I'm not sure if the phrase originates with him, but PJTV's Tony Katz, riffing off of Richard Fernandez's post yesterday on how Obama's evasions and atmosphere of duplicity in general has inflamed the Birthers' arguments, has a great meme going here, fighting back against Contessa Brewer and the pro-Obama MSNBC spin machine. Here's a rough transcript of the key quote in his conversation:

This whole idea of race: if there are Birthers, and they’re all crazy and silly for actually wanting to see a birth certificate, well, let’s talk about the ‘Racers,’ the people who believe that everything’s a conspiracy about race – it’s Obama’s race [that makes] people want to see the birth certificate. It’s Obama’s race [that causes] people not to like the out of control spending. It’s not his race; it’s that he’s awful – the policies are terrible. Obamacare is a lie and a failure; QE1 and QE2 didn’t work.

Watch the whole thing.

But seriously, who could ever accuse MSNBC of being obsessed with race?

Update: CBS's Bob Schieffer is also a racer, incidentally. Meanwhile, Newsbusters notes, not surprisingly, that "MSNBC and CNN Covered 'Birther' Issue Far More Than Fox News."
