Guess what her day job is... that's right, she's a blogger.
Can someone please start a GoFundMe or whatever to get her a personal shopper superhero sidekick? WTF with those shorts and the Dom Deluise leisure suit?

No, the thing about Obama criticism = racism that's ridiculous is the fact that the very last Democratic President, Bill Clinton, a hillbilly from Arkansas, was IMPEACHED during the greatest economic prosperity of our lifetimes. Impeached.

Obama joyfully steers the economy into the gutter of slow-growth socialism lite and his opponents are racist because they won't rubber-stamp his policies.

Ethan raises a good point. Last year, when the markets were at post-recession peaks, Obama told us how he had "saved the economy" on the talk circuit.


Of course, when the market took it's several month shit recently, he was no where to be found taking credit for the economy.

I have always thought that looking at stock market indices is a bad way to gauge economic health.  Most of the time, the market drops if it things a Democrat is going to win and goes up when it thinks a Republican is going to win.  Then over the tenure it flips, because the D president isn't as bad as expected and the R president isn't as good as expected.

A far better measure might be things like unemployment that includes those that have stopped looking or are underemployed.

Yes, clearly stereotypes of being stupid, corrupt, womanizing, and/or drunkards are a distinguishing feature of black politicians.

I maybe a patriarchal swine but to me being womanzer like Trump or Clinton is not something negative. Even if it was, I don't see how someone's personal life should be a measure of his adequacy for the job, unless he is running for archbishop.

As demonstrated in this thread, the problem with the behavior of someone like Trump or Clinton is that it contributes to stereotypes that get imputed to all black politicians.

Personal life is verboten except when it's not.

Hey, I didn't come up with it. I was just reciting the common refrain about stereotypes which are claimed to exist, despite the best efforts of men like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Martin Luther King.

That's a lie. Of course you did.

Those are stereotypes of politicians generally. You're the one who tried to add the racial element. And you're still doing. Assuming all three of those folks count as "politicians", citing three black dudes as examples of traits others here who are less race-obsessed than you associate more naturally with Trump and Clinton does not support your claim that there are "stereotypes" that those characteristics are particularly representative of black politicians.

Horseshit. I actually had to write those as the "correct" answers in a test back in college. I think "blow hard" might have been #5.

Oh, and I can't imagine you could be this dense -- the stereotype isn't that black politicians are corrupt or incompetent, and no one else is; it's that they're more corrupt and more incompetent. Don't you remember this line from The Wire: "You expect politicians to steal, but we took one dollar outta every three, not two out of three like these [derogatory word for African Americans, referring to black politicians]."

But it's less an indicator of a predilection for graft among African-Americans than it is a symptom of the evils of gerrymandering. Any district that is overwhelmingly one ideology tends to disincent accountability by the representative. To focus on black elected officials - look at the ones who come from gerrymandered districts - Alcee Hastings (solicited bribes as a federal judge and then appointed chair of the House Judiciary Committee by Pelosi, LOfuckingL), Cynthia McKinney, guy-who-thought-Guam-might-capsize, Corrine Brown, William Jefferson, Jesse Jackson, Jr., etc.... Now look at black officials elected statewide - Barack Obama, Cory Booker, Tim Scott.
