Nancy LeTourneau's big picture look at politics and life
Welcome to America the Beautiful!
'Any surprise that the racists are going a bit nuts?'None. They are so wonderfully predictable, after all.
I was thinking the same thing! My daughter, her friend and I watched "The Gabby Douglas Story" on Lifetime this weekend. I was thinking about how there is no arena in which folks of color are not participating and succeeding these days.
Maybe it was just because I was depressed by how the Broncos played, but I just could not fathom that anybody would have the cojones to get upset at a multi-lingual, multi-cultural rendition of America the Beautiful. I mean, who would be so stupid as to demonstrate their ignorance, narrow-mindedness and ethnocentrism - if not outright racism - for the world to see. But by golly they went there. I was stunned.
I must say I'm disappointed in the RWNJ's inability to hold 2 simultaneous rage-gasms over Super Bowl ads. Where was the outrage over the new Cheerios ad, daggone it? Was there some secret "Rage-Off" vote held and Coke won?
