My mother used a phrase when I was growing up to describe a situation where you lost either way. I’m sure you’ve heard it.
Whenever she found herself between a rock and a hard place, she’d say, “Well, I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t.”
Welcome to the world of the white Herman Cain supporter:
Herman Cain, I never heard of this guy, but apparently he ran Godfather’s Pizza, and Republicans say they love him so they’re not racist – right.
This is how they do it. First, they get people like Janeane Garofalo to go on MSNBC and say that the Tea Party is “a bunch of teabagging rednecks,” adding “this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.”
But then when the same bunch of “teabagging rednecks” support Herman Cain, a black man, Bill Maher shows up to tell the world it’s only to give the appearance that we are not racist.
Never mind the fact the Tea Party’s sole reason for existing “is about hating a black man in the White House.” We’re going to go ahead and put a different black man in the White House because the only thing more important than our hatred of dark skinned people is what liberals think about us.
This is liberal logic. If you tried to hard to make sense of it, I recommend one Aleve now, and another after four hours if head pain continues.
