Some people have said Obama has a "thin résumé." But "thin" is another word for "skinny," which is a slur for "black." Or so it is according to Slate's Timothy Noah, who has found invidious racism in the pages of the venerable Wall Street Journal.
Timothy Noah needs to spend an afternoon sipping his latte at Mayfair Mall...or even spend some time in a room full of white women on diets.
But this, this is the stupidest thing I've read yet:
When white people are invited to think about Obama's physical appearance, the principal attribute they're likely to dwell on is his dark skin.
The first and last and most common thing I think about O's appearance is his stupid Dumbo ears. Man's head looks like the "before" section of Howdy Doody or Alfred P. Neuman's cosmetic surgeon's portfolio (please send me to a re-education camp with lots of snow). Mr. Noah, you're projecting your racism on the rest of us, and you need to stop.
And if O doesn't want us to think about his skin, why the bloody hell does he keep talking about it??
Ms. Mellon: Bart, what other paradoxes affect our lives?
Bart: Well... you're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't.
(...when you say "look at McCain" the first thing I think of are his stupid grin and his stupid white tufts of Statler and Waldorf hair. If the AARP would like to denounce me, I'll be here all week.)
