Right’s Racist Debate Analysis

The last time we checked in with Erick Erickson from Red State (and also a CNN contributor), he was tweeting from the Democratic convention, “First night of the Vagina Monologues in Charlotte going as expected.”

Today, writing about last night’s debate, he shifts — effortlessly — from sexism to racism:

“One last point — Obama seemed very angry last night throughout the debate. … Several times, on the stage, Mitt Romney commanded and the President followed. Romney led the President and I think it showed to undecided voters. Romney, at one point, commanded the President shut up and sit down and the President did so like a dog told to sit. It was masterful.”

So there you have two racist stereotypes in one short paragraph.  We have Obama as angry black man.  Then we have Obama as subservient, inferior black man obeying his superior, the white man.  Erickson chooses the word “masterful” — as in master and slave.

These right wingers can’t even write a simple debate commentary without revealing the real reason they can’t stand our President.
