Drinking a haughty toddy after a hard day’s superiority
The Boston Globe, gathering up its skirts as if to stomp through the icky mud, gets into High Dudgeon today (or is that “toady”?):

When Vice President Joe Biden warned a Virginia rally of hundreds of African Americans that Republican efforts to loosen bank regulations meant “They’re going to put y’all back in chains,” Stephanie Cutter, Team Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said the president would have “no problem with those comments.”
But imagine if Republican Paul Ryan uttered comments like that. Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president would be pilloried for racial insensitivity — and so would Romney. In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender. But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize.
Really? Somehow The Globe can parse Biden’s comments (which have clear and identifiable historical bases NOT in racial commentary) only according to the spin put on their interpretation by the Romney campaign?
Deep thoughts …
And there’s the idiocy. When someone who HATES YOUR GUTS and with every reason in the world to misconstrue your words, AND with a clear track record of intentionally doing same, you accept THEIR interpretation as correct, and viciously turn on the speaker, without bothering to ask HIM what he meant, there is something WRONG with you. Something desperately, stupidly, brain-addled and propaganda-mesmerized WRONG with you.
And, thus, Biden becomes the “villain” in this horseshit contest, with not a word about the serpents playing Iago.
Ask Othello how that one turned out, won’t you, anonymous Boston Globe “moral” arbiters? Or didn’t you get around to reading it while scribbling poisoned pen letters in college?
Where is all this high-toned moralizing every day when Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and the rest of the scurvy crew infect the airwaves of Boston for three hours? Where then, this “high minded” cry for civility?
Well, I guess it’s because Biden might actually listen to you, and not bitch-slap your pretentious Little Lord Fauntleroy act back into the playpen, where it belongs.
Somebody needs to apologize, but it ain’t Joe Biden. (And catch up, fools. The Snark Express left that one back at the last bus stop.)
