I can’t even bring myself to analyze this further, as some things should be self-evident but, apparently, are not. I’ll just turn it over to Crooks and Liars:
Hey, Whoopi Goldberg and Dixie Chicks….Look what happens when the wingers slam the liberal black guy in the White House at a charity event, no less. That’s right. Nothing. In fact, it takes over 2 weeks for it to even hit the public airwaves.I’m not sure what makes me sicker — what he said or the fact that the crowd (and all those Marines) cheered.
Whoopi Goldberg didn’t fare quite so well in 2004 with Slimfast when she spoke at a Kerry fundraiser and mocked George W. Bush. And then there’s the Dixie Chicks, pulled off the air after criticizing Bush and the Iraq war.
And of course, let’s not forget DC Douglas, the GEICO voiceover guy who was fired after drunk-dialing FreedomWorks and letting them have a piece of his mind.
See, when you’re a spokesperson AND a right-winger,** I guess it’s totally ok to disrespect the office of the President of the United States and bash him at a fundraiser for little kids and military folks. Or not.
