The Corner is filled with idiots
The guy’s supposed to be super-bright, and I suppose he is. But he keeps making one gaffe after another. The latest: “What they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me. You know, he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name, he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.” Um, there’s actually only one president on the dollar bill. If Quayle had said that . . .First of all, it should be pointed out that there are actually many "dollar bills"--the one dollar bill, the five dollar bill, the ten dollar bill, etc.
One more thing: Obama is saying – pretty explicitly – that, if you’re against him, you’re a racist. (You’re saying, “He doesn’t look like all those other presidents.”) Will no one call him on it?
But, more importantly, I can't believe that even Jay Nordlinger is so stupid that he can't tell the difference between saying jerks are going to try to make you nervous about my race and saying you're a racist if you don't support me. Obama isn't playing the race card, he's warning people about it.
