The One That Yelps Loudest

Throw a rock into a pack of dogs, and the one that yelps the loudest is the one that got hit. And God bless Sarah Palin, that girl knows how to throw a rock. Misquoting Albright: Yelp! Fact Check: Yelp! Analysis: Yelp! Yelp! Yelp! With some “racism” sprinkled on top.

And class, you do remember what the House of Eratosthenes Glossary told you an analysis is, right? That’s right…

An Editorial, with a different name so that editors can justify placing it where the news belongs.

Michelle Malkin sums up everything worth saying right here:

Wonder Palin!Putting the “Ass” in “Associated Press,” one of the wire service’s Obama water-carriers attempts to smear Sarah Palin as a racist for spotlighting Barack Obama’s longtime relationships with Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers:

Analysis: Palin’s words carry racial tinge

Palin’s words avoid repulsing voters with overt racism. But is there another subtext for creating the false image of a black presidential nominee “palling around” with terrorists while assuring a predominantly white audience that he doesn’t see their America?

In a post-Sept. 11 America, terrorists are envisioned as dark-skinned radical Muslims, not the homegrown anarchists of Ayers’ day 40 years ago. With Obama a relative unknown when he began his campaign, the Internet hummed with false e-mails about ties to radical Islam of a foreign-born candidate.

Whether intended or not by the McCain campaign, portraying Obama as “not like us” is another potential appeal to racism…
[Associated Press continues with more of its unadulterated nonsense]

Meanwhile, back in the real world, McCain continues to forbid his campaign from going after Obama for his longtime friendship and ideological partnership with Rev. Jeremiah Wright — and refuses to attack Obama on the Fannie/Freddie/CRA debacles because he fears being perceived as a racist.

Earth to McCain: They will see RAAAACISM in whatever you and Palin will say and do from now until Election Day.

Fight or get rolled.

Wake. Up.

These hairs they’re splitting — the splitting is self-parody. Good heavens. Making an issue out of “help women” versus “support women” and then go running off to Madeleine Albright to find out what she meant to say. Seeing racism where there is no cause to — where Gov. Palin has reminded the voters of the terrorist activities of a white guy. S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g to make the desired point. And I suppose they call this journalism. We all know the former Secretary of State is going to be perfectly neutral and objective in announcing what she wants people to believe she meant to say, yeah. Uh huh. Tell me another.

The fact is, the democrats have been staying in office when they haven’t deserved to, for generations, by pretending they have some kind of monopoly on championing issues that have special meaning to women. By driving a big fat wedge between men and women — pretending that what hurts women helps men, and vice-versa. Palin used their own words against them, and beat them at their own game. There was no meaningful misquoting, in letter or in spirit. Albright spoke recklessly, back when it seemed safe, and her words were put on a Starbuck’s coffee cup, where they came back to haunt her. Point Palin.

And Bill Ayers is an unrepentant terrorist. He feels he didn’t do enough when he set those bombs. A qualified presidential candidate wouldn’t have any connection to him whatsoever. Barack Obama would, in all likelihood, be barred from seeking any position with the CIA, the FBI, or obtaining any sort of secret clearance. And rightfully so. It’s called an unfavorable adjudication, and he’s got it written all over ‘im, through the Ayers matter alone.

Truth hurts. The dogs are yelping. Can someone please hand the Governor a big ol’ sackful of rocks — big un’s.
