“Racist” Nonsense

Because I’m so cool, I’m watching a tivo’d “This Week” and Stephanopolous said that one of the ways the polls may be “undercounting” is that they aren’t counting all of the people who won’t vote for Obama because he’s black. Nonsense. The people who aren’t voting for Obama “because he’s black” have undoubtedly already told pollsters they’re not voting for Obama. If there’s much undercounting because of race, it’s overwhelmingly because non-racist people are afraid to tell pollsters they’re not voting for the black guy for fear of people like Stephanopolous calling them racist.

And, if there are racists who might be costing Obama the election, they’re Democrats.
