MSNBC Goofs on Romney's Black Grandson and Then Does the Fake Apology Bit
— Ace

Melissa Harris-Perry and crew found the adoption mock-worthy.

AllahPundit summed it up well here. They really had no idea what was mockable about the adoption or the picture -- they were just certain that it had to be mocked.

[T]he interesting thing about this is that they put the photo on the air even though they obviously didn’t have anything to say about it. Ostensibly it’s comic fodder for Harris-Perry’s panel of comedians to riff, but all they can muster is (1) hey, one of them looks different, (2) a Kardashian joke from MHP herself, and (3) a predictable dig at the GOP — which would have worked just as well as a dig at Obama’s 2012 campaign team, actually. It’s not that the photo’s inherently funny or that a white family adopting a black child is wrong — imagine them reacting to a photo of Tom Cruise with his adopted son — it’s that, I think, they felt they couldn’t let it go unremarked upon that the GOP’s last nominee seems happy to have a black child in his family. On MSNBC, racism is the only reason to become a Republican. They’ve got to mock, even if they’re not exactly sure what they’re mocking, to delegitimize the inconvenient possibility that Romney isn’t prejudiced.

I must point out once again that, despite the protestations of the media, despite its claims of professionalism, despite the belief of many in the media that they are "elite" in some fashion -- most cable shows are now essentially Televised Blogs. Melissa Harris-Perry and crew are just snarkin', because snarkin' is what the ADD audience loves.

It doesn't matter if no one can actually announce what it is, precisely, that they're snarking on; snarky-snark isn't really logical expression. That's not it's point. The chronic snarkster isn't snarking to communicate any particular idea, except for two very base, primitive ones:

1. We're Superior to This Thing We're Talking About, Whatever It Is, and

2. We Constitute a Tribe, You and I, Mutually Loyal To Each Other, Because We All Hoot and Grunt At the Same THings.

Gabe has written about this. In Hollywood fictions, as well as in alleged "news" stories recounted by the media, there are Designated Heroes and there are Designated Villains. Whatever the hero does is heroic not because of the intrinsic heroism of the action but simply because it is the Designated Hero doing it -- and thus the action is heroic, simply because he performs it.

Likewise, everything the Designated Villain -- here, the Romney family -- does is villainous. Not because adopting a black orphan is villainous, but simply because the Villains are performing the action, and you know they must be up to no good. After all, they're the Villains.

I'm not really "outraged" by any of this and I doubt people on the right are "outraged" either.

But there are several points to be taken from it:

1. As Ann Althouse notes, the segment directly following this one -- which Melissa Harris-Perry teases at the end of the clip -- is a round-up of allegedly "racist" statements. This segment is entitled "Hey, Was That Racist?"

I don't think Melissa Harris-Perry's Televised Blog snarking on the race of Romney's grandson is "racist" myself. But I am fairly confident that she would deem this sort of thing racist if someone from Fox were talking about a Democrat adopting a black kid.

By her standards, the "Hey, Was That Racist?" question is answered in the affirmative.

2. Despite their beliefs that they are elevated and enlightened, most leftists are exactly like most other people -- fairly crude and obvious in their thought, and frequently "offensive" when they're not watching their words carefully.

3. MSNBC is not a professional news operation. It is, as someone from Politico observed, "Animal House for lefties."

MHP has now kinda-sorta apologized to anyone who was "offended" (how they love that construction).

But while she apologizes for giving "offense," she makes no apologies for her own racism.

And yes, by her own standards, she is a racist. To speak of race cavalierly or flippantly or mockingly is racist, no matter what the context, is racist -- that is the standard she inflicts on others.

But she herself won't accept that standard for herself.

I don't blame her on that part of it. It's an unlivable standard. It is a punitive, vindictive standard which sets people up for failure and then condemnation.

And that is of course why she insists on that standard for others.

4 They really had no idea what was mockable about the adoption or the picture -- they were just certain that it had to be mocked. It's Jon Stewartism. They know when a picture of a Republican goes on the screen what comes next is a snarky mocking. Imagine being on Hollywood Squares without the pre-scripted answers: "OK, it's your turn, be funny!"

Here is my take on the Melissa Harris-Perry "controversy".  Melissa is a proud African American woman.  By definition, she's been raped three times every day of her life, first of all, because she's a woman, secondfest, because she's black, thirdadoodle, because she's proud.

It is worth noting hear that the word Year is depicted as female in most cultures while New is depicted as male.  So "New Year" is depicts Year getting raped by New from behind.  Happy?  I think not.

21 And yes, by her own standards, she is a racist. To speak of race cavalierly or flippantly or mockingly is racist, no matter what the context, is racist -- that is the standard she inflicts on others. No. That's not her standard. Today, "racist" means "against black people". And not "against a black individual" but "against the black race". So even if she hurts an individual black kid (Romney's grandson) it doesn't matter. I.e., because blacks vote 90% Democrat, the Republican party (and Libertarian party, for that matter) is racist.

36 The Left applies Unforgivable Sins to their enemies, whether true or not, that render them non-people who don't have to be listened to or dealt with fairly. Sexism, racism, greed. You're guilty, because you disagree with them, and they oppose these things, except when they don't, which is constantly. But they're okay, because they say they oppose them, and you don't agree with them 100%, therefore you're1005 guilty, you non-person, you.

I have heard from a source who is in a position to know these things (he's a Leprechaun who wishes to remain anonymous)  that Mitt Romney's family has kidnapped a black child every year for the past 10 years.  And every year there is only 1 black child in the family photo.  You can draw your own conclusions.

51 We have a soft reverse quasi-apartheid system whereby everyone has to put their race check box answer on every government or educational form for various set asides and quotas. Usually the race check boxes are right under your name and address to emphasize how terribly important that is. So growing up in this environment, artificial as it may be genetically and scientifically speaking, one can not help but wonder about the differences between the races which causes this emphasis on race which is apparently as important as location and name. Then they come down on you like CJ's fat ass on a bike. The Left is totally unaware, or in deep denial, that they themselves are the ones who see everything primarily through the lens of race, gender, and sexuality. It's a sort of characteristic predestination without free will or achievement. So pernicious are the progressive shackles that wealthy black students in prestigious universities complain about their inability to get ahead when the president is black and the Justice Department is overtly racist against whites.

53 But flippancy is the best of all. In the first place it is very economical. Only a clever human can make a real Joke about virtue, or indeed about anything else; any of them can be trained to talk as if virtue were funny. Among flippant people the Joke is always assumed to have been made. No one actually makes it; but every serious subject is discussed in a manner which implies that they have already found a ridiculous side to it. If prolonged, the habit of Flippancy builds up around a man the finest armour-plating against the Enemy that I know, and it is quite free from the dangers inherent in the other sources of laughter. It is a thousand miles away from joy it deadens, instead of sharpening, the intellect; and it excites no affection between those who practice it, Your affectionate uncle SCREWTAPE

As I alluded to in the previous thread, to be  authentically  Irish one needs to be raised by drunks. Similarly, to be authentically black one needs to be raised in an environement surrounded by terrifying figures in white hoods. There's no point in 'breaking the cycle' or any of that becoz then your people lose their quaint wholesomeness. Part of why their is soooo much anger amongst American blacks is they feel cheated in not having those experiences becoz you whiteys aren't dressing up like you did in the ole days.

89 In addition to ace's observations, I wonder whether MHP's snark was partly motivated by shame and not wanting to admit the fact that this black baby's life was almost certainly made immeasurably better because of his adoption. He is now a member of a large, loving and intact family. His opportunities are almost limitless. Maybe she is ashamed to ponder what his life would have been had the Romneys not adopted him.

101 To me this MHP gal is a bigot in the broadest sense. She rejects out of hand anyone outside of her tribe. Romney's first offense is being a Republican. His second offense is being rich. His third offense is being white. But he's also not the face of the Republican party and certainly not the face of Conservatism. The fact that MSNBC feels the needs to pick on him or his family says more about them than it does about us. I was reading somewhere - it might've been Kruiser's twitter feed - about how conservatives should best handle this moving forward. I don't want to put words into Kruiser's mouth (and I honestly don't recall if his tweets were in reference to this particular "outrage"), but he seems to be falling on the side of "I'm not going to acknowledge the existence of these horrible people." While many others think the best thing to do is publicize them. I don't know which is the best thing to do, but I'm leaning toward ignoring the MSNBC folks (and similar chattering classes) and only unleashing my "outrage" on the Democrat party officials, politicians, and bureaucrats. But my fervent wish is that Republicans, and conservatives more broadly, reject the premise that we have to defend every single person who is identified as a "conservative" (or Republican) when they say something that the Left decides is an affront. For example, Joe the Plumber* as the initial incident - yeah, defend him and point to the hypocrisy of the Left. But I don't think Joe the Plumber should be someone who represents Conservatism. And if JtP messes up in his personal life or whatever today, I don't feel anything is gained by All of Conservatism going Eleventy in his defense. *Feel free to substitute JtP with whichever conservative symbol is the flavor of the week.

If that proved impossible then the MSM would be demanding to know why he was intentionally sabotaging Obama's signature achievement. They say "you don't win by losing" but maybe we did.

The old racism was based in the 'science!' of the time in Europe and the West generally. Racism based on skin color is not a default setting for humans. The Romans, for example, were not racists. They 'hated' other people for not being Romans. Ironically and paradoxically, new science could help people stop thinking in the old racist ways the old science taught them in the 18-20th Centuries. Great Progressives like Wilson and Sanger were the most hardcore racists it can never be pointed out enough. American Progressive eugenics believers were a great inspiration to the Nazis.

In fact, Sarcasm is totally based on guilt, for it you are not at least partly guilty you will never even note the sarcasm... it won't bite... Now, Comedians know this.... and write jokes based upon it... So, a White couple adopting a black baby HAS no guilt associated with it.... Thus, the writer believes (incorrectly) that the humor must stem from Tragedy.... that a White family adopting a Black Baby is a TRAGEDY... Which says where HER mind is at...

120 51 Beagle One of my closest friends is a reporter for a major daily newspaper. She grew up middle-class and fairly privileged. Just a regular person. HOWEVER, he maternal grandfather had a last name that to the American eye looks "Hispanic." (It's Portuguese, actually, but close enough.) Thus, her mother's maiden name was kinda-sorta "Hispanic"-y. Then the mom married a WASP-y guy with a WASP-y last name. And they had a daughter (my friend) who grew up with that WASP-y last name. But when my friend was 15 years old, the parents got divorced. And soon it was time to apply for college. So my friend, at the age of 15 with total consciousness of what she was doing, begged her mother to revert to her maiden name, so that my friend could then also legally assume that same last name -- the sorta Hispanic-y one. Mom agreed to the scheme. Names legally changed. At the age of 16, my friend was re-born as a "minority" -- a Hispanic girl. And she played i to the hilt. Even though she knows nothing of Hispanic culture, even though her family did not identify as Hispanic, even though she was not perceived as nor treated as Hispanic by the world around her, she noow fully embraced her minority status, as irrevocably confirmed by her last name. She joined Hispanic clubs, took Spanish classes, etc., and most importantly, when she applied for college -- she checked "Hispanic" on the race box. And guess what? I t worked. She applied to Ivy League (and similar) schools and was accepted by several, even though her grades didn't really merit it, as basically an Affirmative Action admission. She was totally unapologetic about taking advantage of this. And from that moment onward in her life, she was played the "minority" card to the hilt, and quickly worked her way up the journalism ladder using that last name as a lethal weapon. She got hired and headhunted and stolen away by paper after paper, all of them desperate to get a "minority" on staff. She joined the Hispanic Journalists Society, and through that got a job at a top paper. She has no shame about this whatsoever. If racial preferences are handed out in America, then she's going to game the system. It's the one aspect of our relationship that is a real thorn in my side. I can't stand the moral corruption of it all, but I like her in every other way. She's just from that generation where pro-minority racial discrimination is part of the landscape, and to her it is not amoral to use that existing landscape to her advantage. Most people of her generation feel the same.

While I don't disagree with you, the practical difficulties of rule by force on a landmass as large as the US are too great for anyone to do so. If you can't rule the US by force of persuasion (and their arguments just aren't that persuasive) forget it. It would be an order of magnitude more difficult than winning a land war in Asia.


The Soviets, who had balls of steel when it came to dealing with dissent, as well as a willing and able cadre of enforcers to manage the gulag system, could not rule over a landmass as large as Russia. The US version of the Soviets, which is managed by a bunch of female lawyers in their middle age/early dotage (HILLARY!!) and whose shock troops would consist of the 1.3 Pajama Boys they spawned in their fertile years, can masturbate to the dream of "ruling" over everyone else for their benefit, but I doubt reality would be as pleasurable, if they were to actually try rule by force.

Since, according to the Leftists, blacks and other minorities shouldn't be Republicans, the supposed lack of blacks should be celebrated, not criticized, by the Left. Of course, logic is not one of their strengths.

To receive benefits from the Native Corporations in Alaska established by Jimmah Carter in the 70's, one must be 1/16 Native, meaning you can be mostly white, but you have to establish that you have some Native blood.


It's a racist scam, but at least it is better than reservations or something that regressive.


Of course, my son is a Native too, but not of Alaska, so I guess he's out on his ass. He will have to make it in the world just like the rest of us. Luckily, he's my son, so that won't be much trouble, just hard work.

238 It is actually far more insidious than Ace and Allahpundit intimate in their posts. Simply put, the Left is sending a message: We will destroy everything you touch in your life and everything you hold near and dear to you if you are on the Right. If you choose the Wrong Side of politics, No One Is Safe. Not your neighbors; not your co-workers; not your favorite restaurant; not your church; and especially not your family. The Left will drag every person you are connected with through the mud. So you better choose wisely OR keep your mouth shut. Posted by: soothsayer at December 31, 2013 02:17 PM (afIp+) Bingo. I forget who it was that noted recently that Mitt Romney was probably the most decent human being we've had run for office in decades. Look, I may have some serious issues with Romney the politician but from all the evidence I've seen Romney the human being is a good man who is trying to live a decent life and is trying to be as good to others as a person can be. What happened? He gives women cancer. "Dancing" horse. Mockery of the equine therapy used to help his wife with her progressive illness. He'll ban tampons. Dog on the roof. On and on and on. He doesn't drink or smoke or do drugs or whore around and none of his kids have ever been in trouble and he and his wife have such a stable relationship that no whispers of infidelity even took root. Look what was done to him. Look what is still being done to him even though I cannot for the life of me think of a single public statement or appearance or political move that he has made in months and months. He is still being destroyed. Why would anyone put they or their families through that? In a bizarre way, this kind of makes me want Trump to run. I mean, what skeleton in Trump's closet could you haul out, that he didn't sleep with those twins?

Watch the look on some Democrat functionary when they see your form. Then if you get scared, just claim it was all a mistake. But see if it goes over first.

Not for profit, just to fuck with their numbers. And apropos of nothing, I just had one of those reminders from God that I don't really have problems. While walking back onto the hospital campus from a smoke break, a young black kid just approached me and started talking, which I guess shows how shell-shocked he was to even just come up and start talking to an old hulking stranger dude. He told me that he just realized that his mother, who had been in the hospital for a month with congestive heart problems, was about to die and he was going to walk home to tell his younger sister. 16 years old and about to lose his mother. Sad. Anyway, his mother's name is Denise, so anyone willing to throw a prayer for perfect strangers might want to consider her and her family.

This is the hilarious part. When you say you oppose abortion, they through that old canard about unwanted babies at you, asking if you are going to adopt all of them. To which I respond, "Of course I will." The simple truth is that they have aborted all the babies that many conservatives would be happy to adopt, and we often have to look to other countries. And then the lefty social workers accuse of white privilege and latent racism, all because we don't care a rat's fat ass what "color" our babies are.



I've never met any racists conservatives, but plenty of racist lefties. Most folks I hang with really don't care about race, positive or negative, but the left "colors" every conversation with this crap. It's all projection, because they would never adopt anyone who isn't lily white, or if they do, they make a big deal about the kid's race to everyone they meet. Way to make a token out of your child. Buncha crap.

Now, Lemon may be trying to get even for the shots he took when he momentarily left the reservation on the issue of race, or maybe he was sincere....I have no idea. What it does tell me that at least some in the media (who are not conservative) are starting to notice the Animal House effect of MSNBC and are embarressed by it. So, in 2014, everytime some Republican candidate gets a stupid question or a wedge question, the one and only proper response is: Do you really want to go there as a reporter?

271 As to Melissa Hyphenated, her comments are basically a pseudo-educated variation on "Romney --He sucks, bad!" The Narrative was basically able to turn Mitch Romney into a universal punchline in the snark-universe. Kind of their version of "I think I'm going to kill myself." The irony is that Romney is perhaps one of the most personally decent individuals to run for public office in a long while. Yes he was a little too purple-state around the edges, and had great flaws as a candidate, but I think an unusually moral and decent individual for a politician. The little black kid? He's the McGuffin.

I had the opportunity to see some carjacking gangs through the years in the legal system. That is the end result of posturing "authentically" the way the gangsta' rappers encouraged throughout the 1990s and beyond. I saw many videos of black gangs posing with guns rapping along with the arbiters of what is really black. Sad really. One of these guys was 19 in 1995 when he went to prison. Should be out early next century. But hey, at least he didn't act white.

292 Hoagie Mustard: "They'll just keep ginning up these faux grievances."

Superficially, I'd agree with you, but I think the dynamic is changing or has changed.

Squirrel! was a great tactic. For a while. And it will be again. But now I don't think it is. ObamaCare and economic misery will be pounding pretty much everyone from here on out or at least until a very abrupt about face is taken on by the electorate via shifting the Overton Window back to the Right. So, distract all you want but the core angst and real costs will remind us daily of what has been wrought.

Even LIVs will understand the constant pain and, because conservatives have been sounding the horn for years, LIVs are starting to listen. Simultaneously, the Duck Dynasty (for example) brouhaha has agitated the vast majority of the nation against the Progressives; this reflexive, racist smear by NBC against the Romneys will do the same. America is becoming less receptive to the Liberal cry. More than anecdotally, look at how the Left's domain of news organizations are taking it in the nuts economically and in viewership. Look at the trending anti-Statist sentiment expanding across the country.

So, yeah, grievances will be aired; and more are seeing them but looking past the Squirrel! because there's a stampede behind it.

Not only is she refusing to engage in civil disobedience to bring down a bad social custom - -she's engaging in civil disobedience to essentially support a bad social custom -- she's supporting it by participating in it. The progressive scheme is to create a series of preferential handouts and unfair bonuses which benefits certain groups, and then assemble a coalition of these beneficiaries to get over 50% of the voting public. No one ever considers that, in a morally sane world, those who would benefit from these unfair handouts and bonuses should refuse to accept them on principle, because to do so would render you into an oppressor.

Romney figure out a way to administer Obamacare competently enough to prevent a death spiral or at least ot get it off the front page. If that proved impossible then the MSM would be demanding to know why he was intentionally sabotaging Obama's signature achievement. They say "you don't win by losing" but maybe we did.

309 To the Left, Republicans and conservatives are unpeople. They have no humanity and anything they do *must* be for some craven reason; they are just not capable of any good, loving, or selfless acts. Period.

So, any good thing Romney (or Bush, Palin, etc.) does *must* be a mistake or  secretly evil (ulterior motive to be specified later, y'all). The grandson is therefore a political prop to be mocked. Just like Trig Palin. It's not mean to mock a prop, amiright?

In other words, fake apology with crossed fingers behind backs as they are cowards. They knew exactly what they were doing and why.

This is just like my stupid liberal brother-in-law, who slammed Ted Cruz a couple of months ago in a family gathering. When I bit he back-pedaled very, very quickly, suddenly non-political, ma'am, with a weak attempt to act like I was over-sensitive to his liberal hogwashing! This past Christmas no one took his bait and ignored him. This is, by far, the worst treatment a narcissist can receive: to be ignored. Which is why Baroque attempts to stay in spotlight, blathering on about "the economy" or snorezzzzzzzzzz, as the facial mole turns darker purple before our eyes...You just know his vacay, in spite of iReggie at his beck ::cough:: and call, is bored silly not being on a podium. Perhaps there is a podium on which his bedstead is centered, with a seal of velvet and purple silk, next to the love seat and heart-shaped tub. hork.

Maybe if I were walking through the ghetto, I would think that, but I can't imagine doing it anywhere else. Plenty of white people are just as likely to hate me for being conservative and adopting a kid of another "race."



I grew up in Alaska, and went to high school where whites were a minority. I never encountered racism until I went to college in St. Louis. I couldn't imagine why the black kids sat at one table and the whites at another. Or why the black kids would choose to do so. I don't immediately have anything in common with another white person just because of my color, and I figure it's the same with black kids, but it was like some hideous unwritten law.



Guess I pissed 'em off when I sat wherever I felt like sitting.

335 Superficially, I'd agree with you, but I think the dynamic is changing or has changed. Squirrel! was a great tactic. For a while. And it will be again. But now I don't think it is. ObamaCare and economic misery will be pounding pretty much everyone from here on out or at least until a very abrupt about face is taken on by the electorate via shifting the Overton Window back to the Right. So, distract all you want but the core angst and real costs will remind us daily of what has been wrought. Even LIVs will understand the constant pain and, because conservatives have been sounding the horn for years, LIVs are starting to listen. Simultaneously, the Duck Dynasty (for example) brouhaha has agitated the vast majority of the nation against the Progressives; this reflexive, racist smear by NBC against the Romneys will do the same. America is becoming less receptive to the Liberal cry. More than anecdotally, look at how the Left's domain of news organizations are taking it in the nuts economically and in viewership. Look at the trending anti-Statist sentiment expanding across the country. So, yeah, grievances will be aired; and more are seeing them but looking past the Squirrel! because there's a stampede behind it. Posted by: AnonymousDrivel at December 31, 2013 02:37 PM (eHIJJ) ********* Thanks for the perspective. I hope you are right. Hell I've been in various hospitals and emergency rooms as a visitor--I'm not commenting under my regular name because-- it has been overwhelming and depressing--and I'm not even a patient or someone who works in the environment--simply an observer. Looks to me like the damn thing is crashing down. I'm taking a break but I have to dive back into it probably. Anyways--it is really, really bad. Conservatives will have to fix it--or I don't think it ever comes back to anything resembling the US healthcare system. It goes to single payer by entropy--or something like that. Simple physics. The health care system is being swamped. Now I am really off to go get drunk.

Sort of.  "If I offended..." is what you're supposed to say when you're still not sure that you've offended anyone.  If you belatedly realize that you probably just crossed a line and want to pre-emptively head off complaints, then it's appropriate.

 

When the social media networks explode because you did something stupid, then it's far, far too late for that.  There's no "If" involved at that point, and using it just means that you're a condescending twit.

The Romney family made the black child ride in a drink cooler in the back of the station wagon.  Just like Rosa Parks, the child is considered a slave. Truth!

If that is the image the IRS conjures up in you, you are certainly not alone. It's not the image it conjures up in me, although I would absolutely like to see it abolished. The larger issue is that it's definitely not the image that it conjures up for enough people that it stays in place and does its thing without much in the way of overt coercion.


My broader point is that one of the reasons the IRS can't openly act like Zod is because the minute they tried to, the equilibrium between them and citizens would change and not in a good way for the IRS. Even now, the equilibrium is changing (Bitcoin and its successors are partially a reaction to this), although it is rare that it changes at the pace any individual who wants it to change wants it to change at.

Let's just do away the guns and all military training while they're at it. Maybe they can just go into fashion design inside

375 And yeah, when did snark become a bad thing? I thought it was just slightly bitchy humor. Almost every comment written about Miley Cyrus and twerking is pretty much snark. Joking about a shallow, ridiculous exhibitionist is not the same as mean-spirited mockery regarding a photo of a man and his grandchildren.

377 This has nothing to do with racism. It is just standard left wing hate of anything remotely conservative.  Imagine that if the baby had been white. The photograph would have been used to demonstrate the "blinding whiteness" of the Romneys (and Republicans) unlike the wonderfully diverse, say, de Blasio family.  Nothing but the typical, snotty, leftist hate that is dragging this country down.

Didn't a documentary about the 2012 Romney campaign just come out? And didn't some lefty say, "Oh, no, this documentary actually made me think Romney is a decent man?"

 

Well, there you have it. The left can't have anybody thinking Romney is decent. The Obamabots at MSNBC had to counter that narrative immediately. They did.

 That was my impression too. It's one thing to mock Miley Cyrus or the dunderheads at MSNBC or King Putt and quite another to mock someone, even someone you disagree with politically, for doing a good and honorable thing.

383 I asked my 4 year old daughter to look at the picture and tell me who was different from the others. She pointed at Mitt Romney and said him, because he was old and the others were young (including his wife, I guess). I'e managed to raise a completely colour-blind child, concerning race, but one infected with the scourge of agism

384 The Left may be identified by many marks, but behaving in an infantile manner and thinking irrationally are foremost. Plus envy. When they attack, it's always because of envy. The inability of the child to measure up to the Parent, whom they hate and fear.

Do the vermin at MSNBC disappear under the floorboards when the lights get turned on?

Oh, and, last!

386 Late to the party, but...

That is a beautiful baby, my goodness. Lucky Romneys. I think the MSNBC hosts have written off the baby as an uncle Tom or Oreo in the making, therefore, totes not above their criticism despite the age. That they still cannot let the Romney family go almost a year later is pathetic.

And about the Robin Roberts story...pics of her at the Daily Mail show that he partner is white, I believe. According to MSNBC mixed race "families" are mockable, so they SHOULD be pointing and laughing at her too, right? That one of these things is not like the other? Oh wait they can't because both the cancer and gay cards trump being black, so instead she is to be lauded and not derided as a race traitor. Am I getting this right? Lefty logic is painful, my head hurts now.

387 Melissa Harris-Perry wears tampon-earrings, so it's very difficult to take her seriously.

After the Left made fun of Trig Palin, it's no surprise they make fun of this baby. Heck, once you murder babies in the womb, there's really no going back.

388 Once again Ace hit's the nail on the head. I love the "Designated Hero" concept. Ever since 9/11 various and sundry groups of so-called public service employees and their false idol worshipping followers have taken the liberty of designating themselves or those they know as "heroes" because they happen to work in the same profession as the first responders who committed truly heroic actions on that day. Those who throw the word hero around at will take away from the truly heroic actions of a very few individuals in this world that have earned that disignation. In fact, I don't think I'm too far off base in stating the most actual heroes would shun the title.cmdr
