Stupid Quote of the Week

"I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state.
But it has the look of him going off to some foreign, exotic place.
He should be in Myrtle Beach!"
-- stated by ABC political analyst, Cokie Roberts while discussing
Barack Obama's recent vacation

Good Heavens, I used to respect this woman

Following Ms. Roberts' logic I guess Puerto Rico would be off limits because it would be too tropical and has too much of a foreign flavor.

I guess someplace like Maine, which bears no demographic resemblance to 99% of the nation, would be a more appropriate location.

Readers, the next time that you are trying to explain covert racism to a person, you can use this quote as a frame of reference.
