« Ann Romney's Horse Makes The Olympic Team, But Apparently That's a Bad Thing | Main | House Government Oversight Committee Votes 23-17 In Favor Of Making "Racism" The Official Language of the US »

Chris Matthews: Don't You Think The Fast & Furious Probe Is, Oh, What's The Word? Tip of My Tongue. Oh, Right: Don't You Think the Fast & Furious Probe is Racist?

I know they love this line, but all I can say is live by the sword, die by the sword.

“I don’t want to start too much forest fire here but it is my instinct: is this ethnic?” Matthews asked San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown last night. “It smells like it to me and I think there is a disdain on the part of some Republicans . . . that do talk down to the president and his friends,” Matthews added.

Brown, earlier in the segment, had already accused Issa of “leading a lynch-like mob” against Holder.

Holder made the same accusation in December. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder told the New York Times, “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

A lot of people on Twitter are pretty sure it's racist, too.

I've talked to independent-type people. This constant claim of racism? Eye Roll City, baby.

They understand it's the desperate defense of last resort. They are not fooled.

I forgot who said it, but failure and incompetence and corruption and dishonesty are not "races."

A lot of people affirmatively voted for Obama because he was black, or at least the idea of a black president appealed to them. (It is, in fact, appealing-- as long as we're not talking about Obama.)

They tended to discount questions about his qualifications to overcompensate for possible racism, their own or others.

I assure you, they will not be doing so again.


BTW: NBC wants you to know you're not entitled to documents concerning a massive covert operation to send guns to drug-barons which resulted in the deaths of 300 Mexicans and two Americans.
