Subject: Race as a factor
These little issues are getting less relevant
as the Obama media squad's manipulation victory
approaches but I'm not sure it got mentioned.
I keep hearing about the exit poll question:
"Was race a factor in your vote?"
and the oh-so-shocking results.
This question is routinely and falsely being interpreted
as "Did you refuse to vote
for a black man because you don't want a black
man to be President?"
In reality, honest voters will say "yes" to the
question because they have legitimate
concerns about the electability of an African-American
candidate come November.
If a voter thinks "no way a black man can be
elected" that's making race a factor
but not the same as "I won't vote for any
black guy cuz I don't like them Blacks."
You can argue that the former is a bad attitude
to adopt - but it ain't the same as the latter.
You are exactly right.
A liar would say "It's not a factor" and
then convince himself that Obama, the man,
is just "inferior," meanwhile the honest people
will say "yes"
and do the right thing.
It's a phoney question intentionally written
"stupid" so the squawking cable morons
can fill hours of air time with mindless, money-making,
David Gergen was flailing the phony interpretation
hard on Tuesday night, calling for Hillary
to announce that "She doesn't want any racists
to vote for her" or something close to that.
It is also worth mentioning that "a factor" could
mean a teeny tiny factor, like .00001%,
where a voter's truthful answer would still have
to be "yes" if they considered race at all.
Maybe it is also worth mentioning that when a
candidate is getting 90%+ of his own
race's voters, those voters just might maybe
possibly perhaps be using race as a factor.
That's the most racist sentence I've ever
allowed on bartcop.com
That's frankly OK with me but I guess Gergen should
have a big problem with it.
All and all, you still got the hammer my brother
so John-Henry it all you can!

Jeff, thanks for that.
