Via the Washington Examiner, we find out that calling Obama "cool" is racist, according to the Congressional Black Caucus:
Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president
"There's an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too cool? And there's this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his sunglasses," Rye said. "And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren't asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that's the number one person they'd love to have a beer with. So, if that's not cool I dont know what is.
She added that "even 'cool,' the term 'cool,' could in some ways be deemed racial [in this instance]."
Got it. Cool is out. Unless you're a racist.
Via the Tatler, quoting a campaign email from the First Lady, we find out that Michelle Obama is a racist:
From coaching basketball to knowing how many Jonas brothers there are, Barack is a pretty cool dad.
I would never in a million years have thought that Michelle Obama would traffic in racialist language in describing her husband. And yet, because I would never think the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus didn't know what she was talking about in such matters, it must be true.
For shame Michelle. For shame.
