MSNBC'S Donny Deutsch: Voters May Be ‘Comforted’ By Scott Brown’s White Maleness
Meidaite ^ | 1-20-10

Posted on 01/20/2010 7:39:56 AM PST by My Favorite Headache

This clip from this morning’s Morning Joe is currently making the rounds due to Peggy Noonan’s remark that today’s Mass. special election GOP candidate Scott Brown is popular because he “looks like an American” (which is not the full quote, though she doesn’t exactly redeem herself either). Actually, Noonan’s remark may be the least offensive to come out of this morning’s 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.

“We’re going back to basics, we’ve obviously had our first African American president we’ve 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? I’m just curious from real kind of sociological point of view.”

Ah yes! The sociological point of view! Read: are people less scared because he’s 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…he’s a regular guy who looks like an American from the middle, or self-made into a middle class, upper middle class guy…we’re 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.

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.

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.

comforted by Scott Brown’s White Maleness

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?

You're right, liberals don't get it. That "shallow, surfacy" thing is typically exposed in the racism of liberals.

Coakley impressed me as a stone-dumb, ice-cold, manipulating b*tch.

AFAIC, I'd not have voted for her, regardless of her politics.

Her gender didn't factor into it at all, if she was male I'd use the same type-reference.

I LOVE HOW THE OTHER side can live with the fact that 95% of black american voters elected obama because he was a brother...but as soon as we elect someone based on the issues it is because of his white maleness....these people have no clue at all and that is why they will go down in flames....

It wasn’t so much the white maleness (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but this statement of purpose that offered me visceral comfort: “Raising taxes, taking over our health care, and giving new rights to terrorists is the wrong agenda for our country.”

To the Left, it’s always been about Identity Politics.
It’s the carefully- built -up- over- decades mindset of Identity Politics and all its gooey, feelgood-inside benefits that is what put Barack Obama in the WHite House
in the first place. NOW , it seems , Identity Politics may be good for White People, too. We’ve come a long way, babies!

NOW, she is merely revealing that she’s about as deep as

Never really looked carefully at him before, but yes, he is a a hawt, pleasant-looking non-metrosexual seeming man. They once talked about that as the JFK effect; something kind of pleasantly ironic that that effect happened in a race for that seat...

Just wait until the nation starts to witness more Black Conservatives in office elected by large white majority districts. The black folks won’t stay on the Dem Lib plantations forever as one when the true light shines in.
That tide is a rollin’ in 2010.
