The Moral High Ground...Well, You Head Two Miles East, But Not Too Far Now, Just Stop When You See People That Aren't Imaginary and Bear Left



I owe a debt to Mark Noonan. Although I don't think his was the first animated gif I did, his eyebrows were absolutely inspirational and they still spin or crawl into various pieces here. His were the first drag-and-drop eyebrows I am aware of* in The Whole of Christendom. Was this the last time I tried to pay attention to him? I didn't even find him and got Michael Voris and his toupée instead.

While we are feeling so charitable, let us discharge the debt and visit Mark Noonan, whose blog is positively hopping again:
The Lynching Continues-Racism in The Media

Herman Cain was featured on a Holly Bailey
hit piece the other day about the video in which Cain pokes fun regarding Anita Hill.
Okay, precisely what nugget might a loon pull from a story about Herman Cain pursuing the worst possible jokes in the current context of his campaign?
But why am I particularly calling out Bailey’s piece as yet another media lynching of Cain?
Yeah, WHY, Mr. Two-Caterpillar-Head?
Look at the accompanying picture they decided to post to go along with the story:


You know, I find myself in agreement with Mark Noonan. It's pretty obvious that the story's image of Cain draping himself over the women is a cheap and unnecessary —
Will you take a look at that.. Herman Cain (with his wide-brimmed fedora) posing with two women, who just happen to be attractive..maybe even a little ghetto… My but if that doesn’t fit the stereotype of a black pimp, eh?
Um, okay Mark, I was not actually going in the pimp direction there...with the ghetto women bit and all...

*Thank you for the lessons Jonah Goldberg. This footnote would be longer but I have to walk the slave.

The women:

A) Not terribly attractive. Even if they weren't posing w/ Pimp Hat.

B) Not "ghetto," whatever that even means, but it certainly doesn't apply to pale-skins like they are.

And:

1) Star Wars slashfic news can't possibly be "of interest."

If anyone knows stereotypes, it's Nooonan. I'll bet he watched Starksy and Hutch!

It's kind of adorable when a person complains of racism then a few words later says something racist.

I think the lady on the right was on this show!!

It's like those filthy-minded psychiatrists and those disgusting ink-blots they keep asking me to look at.
