WashPost Notes 'Narrow Win in Arkansas Indicates Unrest in Party,' Suggests Racism to Blame

Once again last night, President Obama faced an embarrassing showing in Democratic Party primaries, winning only 58.3 percent of the votes of Arkansas Democrats and 57.9 percent of Kentucky ones. Once again, in covering the story, the Washington Post buried the news placing the development on page A6. The last time the president faced such an embarrassingly low showing, the Post put its coverage of federal inmate Keith Judd's stunning 40 percent showing in West Virginia's Democratic primary on page A4.

This time around, Post editors gave readers a misleading subheadline that invoked an all-too-predictable liberal bogeyman: "His struggles in Appalachia, parts of South could be attributed to racism, some say." Yet in the article itself, two Southern Democrats told the Post that while a small minority of white Democrats may be motivated by antipathy to Obama's racial heritage, the vast bulk of the anti-Obama vote is predicated on their distaste for his liberal policies.

I am beginning to think this race card crap is the fruit of godless moral degenerate sociopaths hell bent on destroying this nation because of some demonic fantasy.

Welcome to the club. We meet, well we meet everyday, here and other places.

It had to reach this level of blatant insanity before a lot of people started to take notice.

Hey, I think this is great.

About time Democrats feel the heat of being called “racist” for not approving of what Obama is doing. The more Democratic voters they alienate the better for us.

The Race Card has become the Holy Communion for the Left. If they cannot find racism in it, they have not done their job to distribute the sacrament.

Now, my little Lefties, open up your mouth and stick out your tongue! The anointed elites in the media are sanctifying your existence which ends in hell!

You almost can’t blame them. They have been fabulously successful with this for 40 years. Maybe not with you, not with me, but there’s no arguing with success, as they say.

Why YES, it just has to be RACISM, it cannot be that Obama sucks! HE invites us to White House parties, and all, and the queers love him.

It’s got to be that those schmucks in flyover country are RASSIS! I mean, what do they know?

I don't recall that they've ever leveled a "racism" charge at their own voters, though.

Lame excuse.

Obama is just as Black now as he was four years ago when a lot of these fools voted for him. His race hasn’t changed, therefore the voters’ change of sentiment cannot be based on that.

And it’s always “some say” it’s racism. What is “some’s” name?

They did it some months ago, too. Can’t remember where I read it.

And in ‘08, they didn’t hesitate to call Bill and Hillary Clinton racists.
