Getting my schadenfreude on

As Bruce Schneier used to say in his StippleAPA days, "No matter how cynical I get, I can't keep up."

Who could have expected Barack Obama to demonstrate the truth of the "Half Honky, All Donkey" shibboleth with such epic jackassery? I think Ace summed it up best, although Don Surber is a touch more charitable, and The Bride somewhat more in the analytical mode.

Actually, I can't say I'm really all that surprised, or even shocked. At my age, I've had plenty of opportunities to hear what the well-off liberal Anglo will say when they don't think any of the untermenschenproles are in the room. It's provided me with some really satisfying opportunities over the years to make white people turn paler than Michael Jackson. To paraphrase Colonel Kilgore, "I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. It smells like...pwnage."

Comment of the day: "Pennsylvanians should be thrilled to be explained by one condescending prick to a collection of other condescending pricks at a mansion in San Francisco." (tanstaafl @Jules Crittenden)
