Kane Watch: No way else to put it
Maybe it's the fact that I've been spending a lot of time lately just being unpleasant, or maybe it's just that I had a bottle of bourbon with lunch, but I'm going to approach this Kane Watch with a tad more belligerence than normal.
Eugene Kane can suck my b***s!
I'm sick and tired of his asinine and ignorant commentary on the state of American politics. I'd suggest he stick to more local news, such as covering race relations in Milwaukee, but he's just as piss-poor at that as anything else.
Today on his blog he throws out a salty little statement on how the Republican party is only fielding three white guys for President while the Democrats are apparently blessing us with the diversity of a woman, an African-American and a Hispanic.
Never mind that George W. first appointed an African-American to Secretary of State and later followed up with the first female African-American to the position. Ignore the numerous Hispanics in his cabinet. And forget the fact that any time an African-American is a Republican they're usually met with scorn by the likes of Kane. No, diversity is something that should only be recognized when it's done by the left. It's a case of Uncle Tomism if the right does it, but when African-Americans drink the Liberal Kool Aid, in spite of constant assertions from people like Kane that not all blacks think alike, well, that's all just fine and dandy.
Oh, and for the record, this example of diversity Kane so proudly trumpets is nothing more than a recognition of the color of their skin or what's in (or not in) their pants, and has so little to do with the content of their character. But that's okay, because diversity (conveniently demonstrated when photo-ops are available), trumps all else in the arena of politics.
That is all.
