In response to remarks by Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA 35th) at the 2012 California Democrat party convention which demonized the Republican Congressional leadership, FNC commentator Eric Bolling offered some hyperbolic suggestion in the self-anointed soon to become House Financial Services Chairman-
This wise crack was premised on Diane Sawyer's 2002 interview with Whitney Houston where she denied using crack because that is drug for poor people and she speculated who is the biggest devil.
Granted that Fox &; Friends takes a playful approach to politics but this might have been too much fun. Bolling walked back his jibe after the commercial break, quickly remembering what happened to Don Imus in the morning on MSNBC in 2007. Of course, the Huffington Post was quick to play the race card on Bolling, following the lead from the Center for American Progress and its political overlord.
The Lamestream Media may demand a blood sacrifice for this Waters wise crack. But such a move may further expose the close coordination between supposed non profit watchdogs, like Media Matters, and the West Wing as currently being exposed by a series in the Daily Caller.
Bolling's quip was an eye opener in the morning, but it was a surreal nexus between the hyperbolic allusion of "white devils" dirty from Maxine Waters and the halluceangenic hagiography for the talented but troubled pop diva. But voices from the left are quick to chime racism. This follows the pattern of the Finger of Truth moment in January, when Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) had a tense official meeting on the tarmac with President Barack Obama, which permitted progressive partisans to evoke the specter of racism while personally savaging Brewer.
For a party that claimed that it wanted to foster bridges of civility after the shooting of former Representative Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ 8th), it seems like Democrats and their Lamestream Media lackeys actually constructed lots of one way streets instead.
