Karoli at Crooks & Liars notes The Daily Caller's report on the new canine arrival at the White House:
Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller spilled the beans. First, they inject a meaningless statistic into a mention of Sunny's birthplace:
It's a dog named "Sunny." Apparently it's a girl and it was born in 2012 in Michigan, where the unemployment rate was 8.8 percent last month. It is the Obamas’ second dog, after "Bo."
Did the birth of a puppy in Michigan somehow contribute to the unemployment rate, the reader wonders? Or was it just a way for Tuckie's cohorts to stick it to the President while reporting a cute puppy story. Either way, it's not really the gist of the article. No, dear readers. HERE is the gist:
With the addition of Sunny, the Obamas now have two black Portuguese water dogs.

The Obamas do not have any white dogs.
That's right -- the Caller wants you to know that, just as you'd imagine, our first black president has two dogs that are black.

Um, you know who else had no white dogs as president? And had two black dogs instead?

George Walker X, slave name "Bush":

Stay black, Dubya.

On the other hand, the staff of The Daily Caller is full of white dogs.

Sorry, Ten Bears, I beat you to that line! :-)

Can we please stop pretending that Tucker Carlson isn't a bigot? Because he obviously has.

There are just no words to express how terrible these people are.

There has long been this idea that the worst racists are a thing of the past. But today's GOP is every bit as disgusting as any of their racist predecessors.

Can you imagine the kind of country we could have if we were not blighted by the presence of 40 million hard core wingnuts? I swear I wish a high tide would wash these fuckers out to sea.

I keep thinking the staff of the Onion managed to hack Carlson's site, but I guess it's just sheer, utter f*ckery instead. The stupid, it burns.
