Chris Matthews: Boy Howdy, I Can't Tell You How Wonderful It Is to See A Black Man With a Wife and a Steady Paycheck!

More racial nuance from Chris "For a moment I almost forgot he was black" Matthews.

"Almost pluperfect," he calls Obama.

His entire speech here is racist. Yes, racist. Most politicians "do everything right" in terms of getting an education, securing gainful employment, getting married and raising a family.

Most people do this, in fact.

Why is it that in the case of Obama it is required that we "like this guy" for doing what 85% of the public does? In fact -- for doing what 85% of black people do?

He's doling out the superlatives for perfectly ordinary good behavior, of course, because Obama's black, and Chris Matthews finds it just plum remarkable that there's a successful, bourgeois upper-class black man out there, and we should all gawk at it and and "oooh" and "ahhh" at it like it's a, well, like it's a unicorn.

As Chris Rock said, "You're supposed to" do these things, and you're not supposed to get a big stack of credit for doing them.

But Chris Matthews, closet racist, thinks this is just about the most amazing thing he's ever seen, like a horse that can do addition.

Also, as he's being racist himself, the subtext is he's calling you racist, because what he's trying to say is this: "I understand why you don't like black people who deviate from what is considered pro-social behavior and life trajectories. But this one guy -- this one single black guy in all America -- has followed a 'white' code of pro-social behavior and life trajectory, and you still don't like him, ergo it must only be because he's black, and therefore you're a racist, my insufferable racial condescension notwithstanding."

Well, here's the thing, Chris: As a neighbor, I'm sure I'd like Obama. Assuming he weren't president and constantly tying up local traffic.

But he's not just a neighbor, not just a guy I can say "Hey, he loves his kids; seems like an okay guy."

He's the president and he's pushing an agenda on the country I find destructive and, yes, anti-American. And I did oppose a much-weaker form of this agenda when it was pushed by the white Bill Clinton.

Barack Obama's agenda is Bill Clinton's raised to the ninth power.

Now, if I didn't oppose Obama, wouldn't that be only due to the color of his skin, Chris? If I opposed a weak-tea form of Obamaism under Clinton, wouldn't only race be my reason for accepting it from Obama?

Any black readers, take note: Here's your totally-not-racist white liberal establishment, handing out gold stars and Certificates of Effort as if you're mentally challenged.

Black Conservatives, Liberals Tangle at Beck/Sharpton Events:

Holy mackerel, it fills me with such pride that this all happened without a single person challenging anyone to a break-dance duel.
