The always excellent Bob Cesca takes a look at this Andrew Breitbart quote:
"If anybody reads the sainted, martyred Sherrod’s entire speech, this person has not gotten past black vs. white."
And asks the following:
And, somehow, Breitbart implies that he's enlightened and Sherrod isn't, without any consideration on his part as to why this might be. What race-based injustices have Breitbart's ancestors suffered at the hands of white Americans that come anywhere close to the injustices suffered by Sherrod's ancestors -- and Sherrod herself -- entirely due to her race?
Well, as I said last night, the answer if you're Pat Buchanan is "The Election Of One Barack Hussein Obama."
Opposition to affirmative action is racist. Supporting the tea party gives aid and comfort to racists. Opposing health care puts you in league with folks who used racial slurs on Rep. John Lewis. To raise the issue of the New Black Panther Party is to play the race card. 

One understand the bitterness of tea party folks who carry signs that read: "What difference does it make what this placard says. You'll call it racist anyway." 

As the National Journal's Ron Brownstein has been reporting, white America is increasingly alienated and distrustful of all our major economic and political power centers -- the banks, big corporations, the government. 

And, for the first time in our lifetimes, outside the South, white racial consciousness has visibly begun to rise. 
And yes, folks.  It really is quite that simple.  There's a President that for the first time doesn't look like the majority of Americans.  For Pat Buchanan and his ilk...that is an unpardonable crime that Barack is guilty of.

Believe me when I say they mean to prosecute that crime.
