Well, obviously, because you need to find out what all those “racist dog whistles” you heard at the Republican National Convention actually mean. Take this zinger from Mitch McConnell, for example,: “(Obama) hasn’t been working to earn reelection, he’s been working to earn a spot on the PGA tour!”
Did you know that’s actually a coded racist remark? Oh, yes, indeed. In fact, it’s apparently coded so well that: only the liberals at MSNBC can decipher it.
This afternoon, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell got his hands on excerpts of the remarks that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was preparing to give this evening. Bound and determined to find racism where it doesn’t exist, O’Donnell did not disappoint. Taking to the air on Martin Bashir’s eponymous program, O’Donnell laid out his case that McConnell’s crack that the president “has been working hard to earn a spot on the PGA tour.”
That’s just plain racist, even if by two or three degrees of separation, O’Donnell explained. The long and short of it: When you think Obama at the PGA, you think of Tiger Woods, and when you think of Tiger Woods, you think about his cheating on his wife.
…Although initially skeptical, Bashir was ultimately convinced. “Wow, things are getting lower and lower by the day,” he lamented.
Wow, thanks, Lawrence O’Donnell! Without your help, pretty much every single person in America would have missed what was obviously meant to be a racist remark that hurt Obama. Of course, making these racist dog whistles so difficult to pick up that only hosts at MSNBC can manage it sort of defeats the whole purpose of the bigoted remarks, but maybe Republicans can work on that in the future.
PS: What idiots.
