View Diary: Romney campaign so desperate to change subject from Mourdock that they accuse Colin Powell of racism (155 comments)

  •  Look at the ads that predominate on cable shows -- (0+ / 0-)

    not the same ads that predominate during, say, The Colbert Show or The Daily Show. Bluntly, they're appealing to an older demographic that wants to live in a Mayberry America that never existed but they believed -- and now believe in absolutley -- in anyway because the tv told them to.

    The comments on the two front page redstate posts on this (the other has far more vaporified comments than Erickson's) are dripping with concern for white womanhood being ravaged by the embodiment of a threat to all that is sacred and holy about Jesus's own America.

    I mean literally, they are claiming that this poor misguided and fallen angel of young white womanhood has been personally deflowered by Obama himself in front of an indifferent America, excluding the still pure and noble redstates of course.

    For the base, it works like a charm to distract from Mourdock letting the cat out of the bad that all GOPers who have their minds right with the Teahadists actually agree that women are primarily baby factories it's their divinely inspired role to shut the fuck up and pump out that baby, little missy. They've been ready and waiting for a distraction from this because even if this taliban equivalent worldview doesn't make them uncomfortable, they know it doesn't play well with the normals.

    So they think, in their black and white imagination, that all they have to do to set the world right again is to conjure up yet again the scary mandingo coming around to negroify your women, your daughters, and even your future children (they can do that, you know).

    It worked in their black and white Americas, both real and imagined. I don't think it'll work in the actual IRL America today.
