Obamanoids: They All Look Alike to Me

By Nicholas Stix

Not only do these race card rounds by Obama and his surrogates all sound alike, it’s getting impossible to even tell the surrogates form each other. It’s bad enough that the there is one generic white and one generic black race card dealer, appearing under a different name each time—this crap must be coordinated—every month or two, but there are so many of them, that even their names are beginning to sound indistinguishable.

I spent hours the other day, googling to find Timesman David Shipley, the guy who wrote the April 16 L.A. Times op-ed, “The Resonance of Racism,” claiming that criticism of Obama as “elitist” or “out of touch” were code phrases for racist attacks. But all I could find were hundreds of references to Shipley’s stunt, where in his function as New York Times op-ed editor, the 48-year-old had furnished Obama with a free ad, in the form of a guest op-ed signed by the candidate, while refusing to reciprocate for McCain. Eventually, I changed course, and was able to determine that I had really been looking for a different Obamanoid altogether, Timesman David Shipler. The 65-year-old Shipler wrote an unreadable book ten years ago, A Country of Strangers: Blacks and Whites in America, promoting “racial dialogue,” whereby groups of apologetic whites would meet with groups of inconsolable blacks, so that the whites could practice apologizing, and the blacks could practice refusing to accept their apologies.

Along the way, I stumbled onto a perfectly splendid blog, Insight Analytical: Watching Our World, by Kenosha Marge, specifically her witty essay reviewing Obama’s rounds, “PUT THAT RACE CARD DOWN AND STEP AWAY FROM THE DECK!”

Is there a way to send a confidential email to Nicholas Stix?

Thank you.

Hi Nick,
Enjoy your writing.

My question on the Obama question is why throw away a vote on a liberal yuppie white boy with a black face? Especially when there is a 100% black 100% African, 100% experienced, 100% socialist with experience wrecking an economy available (and I think he speaks two languages to boot)?
Not only that, after the Int Monetary Fund and the UN put their pointy heads together, he should be looking for a new job pretty much about the time the '08 election finishes.

In other words, I'm waiting for the Dems and Repubs to stop pretending there is any real difference between them and at their joint convention McCain and Obama will hug and cheer on camera as Robert Mugabe is nominated by acclamation.

From Zimbawe to the White House in one fell swoop. Please don't be a spoiler and tell me it can't be done.

LOL! What to say, what to say?

RV, I think you need to have more faith in Comrade Obama's plans to Zimbabwify The Nation Formerly Known as America.
