Daily Show Race Genie

By: Harry Waisbren

Jon Stewart strikes again, this time by way of a race genie able to analyze the media's simultaneous obsession and arousal from the race card. This particular spat came in response to a McCain ad that included various dogwhistles specifically designed to conjure the racist id of conservative wingnuttia, which was shortly followed by McCain insidiously declaring that Obama had played the race card himself. This set forth the media's inner confused adolescant and the results are rather telling for the state of journalism in America (via Raw Story):

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised considering we have a media in which Reverand Wright was the dominant topic of the democratic primary campaign, but this is certainly pathetic. At least a commentater didn't say a black man was acting uppity this time.
