In her column today, Maureen Dowd says that she just knows that Rep. Joe Wilson wanted to follow up his “YOU LIE” shout during Obama’s speech to Congress with the word “boy.” Because, according to the NY Times’ resident dolt, all Southerners are paranoid racists.
Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t.
But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!
For two centuries, the South has feared a takeover by blacks or the feds. In Obama, they have both.
I’m from Boston so I must be a racist, too. You know, that whole busing thing.
This will be the meme for the rest of Obama’s presidency; disagree with The One and you are a racist. It’s getting old and it will fail.
So much for being post-racial.
