“Deceptive” doesn’t quite do justice to Ed Schultz’s scurrilously selective editing of a Rick Perry speech to claim that the Texas governor is– you’ll never guess– an Anti-Obama racist.
In related news, MSNBC: Does Racism Racist Or Does Racist Racism Racism?
USA – This morning, racism was racism when racist racially racism racisted. Racists throughout the racism are racist toward racism despite racists’ racism of racism. Although racists racially racism racist, racism has brought about racism amid racists and racism. Racism has a long racism of racists, and the racists racism racism are racially racist and racism.
Most racist American racists remain racist over the racism, sinking into almost racist racism after racistly racism. Yet the racism of the racist racism of our racist country presents racism as a racist racial racism.
The question of whether racism was a racist racism of the racism, an issue raised by a racist that had been racist to suggest as much, may have racist her a new racist, the racist said.
We’ve racist this racist versus racist and moved to a racism where racism can racist racism racist. Racists were hoping we would racist racism. But this is racism that racists’ racism racism racism, and racists are racism racism.
The racist, who is racist, was asked to racism after racism of her racist a racial racism surfaced showing racists racially racism to racists because of racism.
Racism racist racism, racist racially racism racist– racism’s racist racism racist racial racistly racism racism; racism racist’s racism racist racism. Racists racism racist, racism’s racism racists. Racism racist, racist racism racist racial racism, racism racism racism racism racism racism. Racism racism.
This is hilarious, and I can hardly believe it exists.
Heather Graham, well-stretched and wearing track gear, starts with about a 10-yard head start and yet all these business-dressed, apparently out-of-shape avatars for insurance companies manage to quickly catch up with her.
This “race” metaphor is so dumb, but it’s only made worse by selecting an actress who is clearly not very athletic, then inexplicably, showing her quickly lose ground to the rest of the group. (Where are her rollerskates?)
Bad metaphor, poorly executed. Kind of suggests the opposite of what they wanted.
I predict somebody parodies this by Friday, and the parody– in addition to being more clever and better executed– receives substantially more views than the original.

UPDATE: More from Allahpundit.
Jimmy Carter describing his opposition to government programs “to inject black families into a white neighborhood just to create some sort of integration”:
I have nothing against a community that is made up of people who are Polish, or who are Czechoslovakians, or who are French Canadians or who are blacks trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods. This is a natural inclination.
From Time Magazine, 1976. H/T Mike B.
UPDATE: More on Carter’s own record on race from NewsReal:
Carter campaigned for governor of Georgia as a self-proclaimed â€œredneck,â€ in an era when that word had pronounced racial connotations. His campaign distributed a photo of his gubernatorial opponent Carl Sanders being embraced by black basketball players to a Ku Klux Klan rally. Carter pledged to invite Alabamaâ€™s infamous segregationist governor George Wallace to Georgia if elected. He once said he was â€œproudâ€ to have the equally segregationist Lester Maddox as his lieutenant governor following the 1970 election, calling Governor Axe-handle â€œthe essence of the Democratic Partyâ€ (which he was).
Jimmy Carter says that an “overwhelming portion” of the protests is motivated by racism.
A question: where were all these insanely, murderously racist people during Obama’s campaign, the election, the transition, the inauguration and the first several months of his presidency?
Does it really defy the imagination of Jimmy Carter, Maureen Dowd, Keith Olbermann, Lawrence O’Donnell, et al. that any of these protesters are genuinely worried about public policy?
Or is this some new species of racism that lies dormant before seizing upon the minds of conservatives when private healthcare is threatened?
TELEGRAPH (UK): Maureen Dowd's disgusting insinuation that Joe Wilson is a racist would land her in court in Britain
The New York Times demands high enough standards of evidence when the target of a defamatory remark is a liberal. But Joe Wilson is fair game â€“ not because he behaved so badly, but because the financially troubled â€œold gray ladyâ€ and her employees are still in the grip of Messianic delusions.
From David Shuster of MSNBC:
President Obama is the first ever African-American to hold the nation’s highest office, and now he’s the first President to be openly heckled during an address to a joint session of Congress.
Every president faces scathing criticism from the fanatical fringe, but this at least feels different.
First black President, first to be heckled. Ergo, heckler = racist. Got it. (This is pretty easy– I could get used to this!)
And if that logic doesn’t hold up, David Shuster has “feelings.” And I’ve watched enough MSNBC to know how this works– his feelings trump your facts.
