Racers Gotta Race

Now is the time when we juxtapose headlines, Small Dead Animals-style:

● “Arne Duncan: ‘White suburban moms’ upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant.’”

● “Oprah: To End Racism, Racists Have to Die Out.”

I don’t know why Oprah Winfrey hates her fellow leftist so much, but perhaps she’s onto something…

For a more serious look at Oprah’s quote, don’t miss Victor Davis Hanson on “The Moral Decline of Oprah.”

Headline inspired by PJTV alumnus Tony Katz back in 2011:

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.
