"Racial McCarthyism is alive and well in Barack Obama’s America, where reckless liberals hurl baseless charges of racism at critics of the nation’s first black president. ... The host of NBC’s Meet the Press accused Newt Gingrich of having used 'coded, racially tinged language’ when he described Obama as a 'food-stamp president’ a few days earlier. In reality Gingrich hadn’t made anything like a racially tinged remark, coded or otherwise." [editor's note: It seems faint praise to call this shapeshifting, mysogynistic, authoritarian imperialist "not a racist" ... but there you are! - SAT] (05/22/11)
