Bravo Wonk the Vote… This entire mess was on my mind the last 24 hours. I was angered by the fact that yet another person thrown under a bus by Obama, yet at the same time, I was pissed that the same group of people bringing this fact out in the open are calling me a racist…by that I mean that since I clearly am disgusted with what happened in 2008 regarding the voter intimidation by the Black Panthers. Yes this intimidation is a big thing, and no it is not something manufactured by Fox News or some sort of phony right wing thing.

This latest post from Wonk the Vote,  see below, hits on exactly what I have thought about. She states it in such a way, that I have to applaud this:

We’re called racists even though we’re not. We’re the victims of racism and other forms of discrimination while the gatekeepers of what is civil and okay to say look the other way.

That is exactly how I feel.

I just wish that the WH would go after one of the issues recently championed by Fox News, and that is the Black Panther Voter Intimidation…or the voter fraud that so many of us are familiar with.

It is like I am being pulled in two directions. One, that is disgusted that a witch hunt on a woman like Sherrod…by not even fully investigating the comment before burning her at the stake…not only in the Beck corner, but in the NAACP and Obama Admin corner as well. And in the other direction, seeing liberal sites like Media Matters and FDL trash the Black Panther and J. Christian Adams as a manufactured right-wing phony conspiracy.

I guess what I am trying to say is that these feelings I have put me back in the middle. Feeling angry and alienated by the liberal Democrats, yet also pissed off at the conservative right.

Oh and by the way…WTV also said this: “Beck is the same to me as Michael Moore. They both are propagandists leading sheep (off a cliff).” I got to say I agree with this statement too…she is on fire! Anyway, here is the post by Wonk the Vote…and thanks.

At the time this story first started buzzing in the morning, I reserved comment. I wanted to get Sherrod’s side of the story first and the larger context of her remarks. From the soundbyte I had seen — which was the footage that first went viral after conservative media put it out there– Sherrod’s tone and the context clues indicated to me that she was trying to express the opposite of what was being alleged against her in conservative media an … Read More

    One of the first things we were taught in my survey of politics course when I was Junior in college, was the importance of pens in Washington D.C.  LBJ made them a big deal, when signing legislation…he would sign his name…each letter with a different pen, and then give this special pens out to those […]
