I am cranky this morning, so I am about to unload a stream of obscenities:
“Josh Marshall- Shut the Fuck Up.”
Thank you- that was the only reaction I could muster to this piece from Josh:
How low will they go? Now Clarke’s a racist (from last night’s Crossfire …
ROBERT NOVAK: Congressman, do you believe, you’re a sophisticated guy, do you believe watching these hearings that Dick Clarke has a problem with this African-American woman Condoleezza Rice?
RAHM EMANUEL: Say that again?
ROBERT NOVAK: Do you believe that Dick Clarke has a problem with this African-American woman Condoleezza Rice?
RAHM EMANUEL: No, no. Bob, give me a break. No. No.
First- he did not say he was racist or sexist, he asked.
Second, is there anyone, and I mean anyone, who thinks that if the roles were reversed, that Now, the NAACP, and the chattering classes would have not already asked the question, but advanced the idea that ther man is completely and irreparably racist and sexist. Please- go look up face validity.
Third, this is from the same Josh Marshall, who, two days after he was selected to be Senate Majority Leader, accused Frist of racism for a pencil incident and noting that Marion Berry is a shitty elected leader.
And, one more thing, Josh- you can end the “Clarke is no partisan- he is a Republican” bullshit:
RUSSERT: And we’re back.
Did you vote for George Bush in 2000?
CLARKE: No, I did not.
RUSSERT: You voted for Al Gore?
CLARKE: Yes, I did.
RUSSERT: In 2004, you’ll vote for John Kerry?
CLARKE: I’m not going to endorse John Kerry. That’s what the White House wants me to do. They want to say I’m part of the Kerry campaign. I’ve already pledged I’m not part of the Kerry campaign, and I will not serve in the Kerry administration.
RUSSERT: Will you vote for him?
CLARKE: That’s my business.
No shit. Go back to being wrong about North Korea, Josh, because this Clarke rehabilitation attempt is failing miserably.
