WaPo’s Richard Cohen Shows His Bias And His True (Racist) Colors In Palin Hit Piece

These days, the biased leftist slant of the media is more apparent than it has ever been. They are spinning madly, increasingly frantic with fear of those super scary Tea Partiers and oh-so-terrifying conservatives. And when you add Sarah Palin and race-based identity politics into the mix, it becomes a perfect storm of unabashed — and unbalanced — leftist water carrying.

The Washington Post’s Richard Cohen is the latest to exhibit just how unglued the Left and the media, being concentric circles on a Venn diagram, natch, have become. Newsbusters points out that in the article titled “Attack on Michelle Obama shows Palin’s ignorance of history,” Cohen comes to the inane, and typically leftist, conclusion that Sarah Palin “could not be the president of black America nor of Hispanic America.”  Um. Sure, I’m no swanky-pants Washington Post columnist, nor do I even have the vast experience of a community organizer from which to draw, but I’m fairly certain that the presidency isn’t segregated.

Can’t let pesky facts stand in the way of a hit piece, though, can he? How does Cohen form his brilliant – and sure-fire entre into a good cocktail party this weekend – hypothesis? Because Sarah Palin dares to mention the following in her new book:

In her new book, she reportedly takes Michelle Obama to task for her supposedly infamous remark from the 2008 campaign: “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” [...]

Huh. Again, I’m no expert, but it seems to me that Michelle Obama actually did say that. So, by “taking her to task,” he of course means smearing with, you know, the truth. Oh, that wing-nutty Palin! Telling the truth and all. That’s so reactionary and old school! I suppose they don’t like that whole “Truth to Power” thing turned around on them. The book snippet to which he refers is as follows:

Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. In retrospect, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us, since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church listening to his rants against America and white people.

Cohen isn’t alone in his delusions. The Huffington Post called that passage “racially charged.” Why? Because the Left, in their stompy foot temper tantrums, are letting their true colors show. And they are racist ones.

    Why do these leftists bastards and bitches continue to support the dumbass un-American stuck up Mooshell? :roll: Simply so they can use their favorite term RACIST. They could give a rat’s ass about the truth.

    Palin is 300% more effective if she just keeps the demonrats wondering whether she will run or not.

    I love it.

    Her time will come.

    People like Dick are so infuriated that Obama has failed on nearly everything he promised, and that he was humiliated by the mid-term elections. Since they can’t write a hit piece on Obama, Palin is the biggest target because she’s out in the public in a big way right now.

    Childish, immature, whining brats … Democrats.

    The truth is a powerful weapon for what ails our great country. I think Sarah is never going to let evil people who hate America and want to destroy what we stand for forget it.
    Not because she hates these people and what they stand against but because she believes in her heart in what is good and right.
    And that is all the difference.

    I didn’t know “Little Dick” Cohen was still scribbling. Quit reading the Post in ’71 or so.
