Dear Mr. Lupica, please do humanity a favor and go to www.killyourself.com and follow the instructions.
New York Daily News columnist Mike Lupica went a little overboard in his analysis of the political landscape in a column on Friday. Lupica could not even mask his spite and resentment for the American people when he determined that the nation, still simmering with latent racism, is ready to let their most ignoble instincts take over in the fall and unseat the President. Lupica calls Barack Obama’s race “the silent issue that could doom” his election chances and says being black makes Obama the underdog ahead of November.
Lupica suggests that it was not so much that Obama overcame the nation’s racism in the last presidential election cycle, but that the perfect storm of Democratic headwinds in 2008 (financial collapse, 8 years of Republican governance, an unpopular war, etc.) buoyed Obama enough to overcome the nation’s recalcitrant white racist vote:
Last time, there were just weren’t enough reasons for enough white voters to vote against the black guy, as much as they wanted to. This time there are plenty.
Lupica also warns his readers not to believe that this race is close in the polls — only because spiteful white racists don’t want you to know about their plan just yet:
If there is one great truth about polling in this country, at least when it comes to race, is that people lie through their teeth. Mostly because they don’t want to look like some lousy, scummy bigot — even talking to an anonymous voice on the telephone.
