A superb rant

Mychal Massie's hard hitting commentary on race, Obama and politics:

There two things that conservatives need to learn when it comes to fighting the liberal communists who compromise the left. First, that fighting them is guerilla warfare, and secondly, that you don’t bring a spoon to a gunfight. Make it three things – mea culpas and genuflection do not work.

Rush Limbaugh may not have spoke politely about the Georgetown Fluke – but did he say anything remotely close to what the very same people now squealing like stuck pigs have said about conservatives? And before you answer that question, was what he said about her by definition untrue. If what he said wasn’t true, then an apology was in order, but if her behind is the equivalent of a FBI fingerprint repository, then by definition of same, what has Rush to apologize about?

We’ve witnessed the vulgar vitriol from Bill Maher about Sarah Palin. Have there been any outcries about his obscene diatribes from those now feigning insult by what Rush said? Were there any outcries when Liberal strategist Julianne Malveaux, the former president of Bennett College, the historically, black all-female college – when she said she wished Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife would feed him lots of butter and fatty foods, so he would have a heart attack and die? Did these same people condemn the actions of blacks throwing Oreo cookies at Michael Steele when he was running for office? When Laura Ingraham was called a slut by MSNBC’s Ed Schutlz [sic], none other than Barbara Walters laughed it off on The View. Indeed it was a source of great amusement on her show. [...]

Read it all.

    Ah, but being liberal/leftist means it's OK to be a hypocrite, and also means you never have to say you're sorry. All you have to say is something like "It's Bush's fault," or "I misspoke," or "I was taken out of context." If all else fails, just claim a vast right-wing conspiracy. You know the drill.
