Posted on 01/20/2010 7:39:56 AM PST by My Favorite Headache
This clip from this mornings Morning Joe is currently making the rounds due to Peggy Noonans remark that todays Mass. special election GOP candidate Scott Brown is popular because he looks like an American (which is not the full quote, though she doesnt exactly redeem herself either). Actually, Noonans remark may be the least offensive to come out of this mornings chat session on the subject; Donny Deutsch thinks the fact Brown not black or a woman may offer a visceral comfort to voters. The more things change, etc.
Were going back to basics, weve obviously had our first African American president weve had the female candidates and whatnot [and whatnot!] you look at him he looks like the candidate, the traditional view of the candidate, and is there a visceral comfort in that for people? Im just curious from real kind of sociological point of view.
Ah yes! The sociological point of view! Read: are people less scared because hes white. Peggy Noonan can actually be heard disagreeing with Deutsch in the background before she goes on to note that Brown does mark a change in the voting habits of a Massachusett because he looks like a new sort of Republican hes a regular guy who looks like an American from the middle, or self-made into a middle class, upper middle class guy were seeing some evolution of what Republicans in Mass are right now.
So basically a bunch of white people spent part of their morning remarking on how safe and attractive a Republican candidate is. Also, Mike Barnicle thinks Coakley is reminiscent of your least favorite substitute school teacher. Video below.
They don’t get it!
It’s about the ISSUES, not appearances.
Liberals are SHALLOW, SURFACY people.
rot — they voted for him because they liked what he stood for, not for the color of his skin.
Race theory of the left, perfect opportunity for any conservative to ask this clown to explain what he means beyond this crappy sound bite talking point.
Donny Douchebag speaks....
The hits just keep coming from this waste of a “news” organization. From Matthew’s religious bigotry to Deutsch’s racism...
Libs are pissed because they know part of Brown’s appeal to Dem women (and gay men) was his hotness.
That’s just a fact of life.
Donny fancies himself the guru of advertising/marketing and just can’t help assessing life based on outward appearances only.
They are in denile. Cozine was a white male. Deeds was a white male.
The more the leftist elites believe this foolishness, the easier it will be to continue to blind side them.
Deutsch said: “Im just curious.”
I think that’s all we need to know Donnie.
As opposed to Obamas unpatriotic black girlyness? Just because Brown is a patriot and career soldier, doesn't mean there is anything wrong here.
Don't the issues count, too, just a little bit?
I guess he is DUMB like Palin, Beck, etc... that tells me the right person got elected! Don’t these idiots know when to stop? Hopefully they keep it up because they look like a bunch of 3 year old spoiled brats!
I’m not comforted by Donny’s doucheness. The guy is a complete tool.
as shallow as the president trying to race bait from the pulpit
I guess at some point it’s just going to be against the law to be a white middle-class guy.
You're right, liberals don't get it. That "shallow, surfacy" thing is typically exposed in the racism of liberals.
It’s just reality.
The minute I saw him, I knew he was a winner.
What do you expect from a guy who regularly wears pink shirts?
Memo to MSNBC:
The people of Massachussets are no longer buying your lies.
