Here's some free advice for conservatives concerned that they might be portrayed as racists by liberal bloggers: Don't put overtly racist shit on your blog…
Conservative radio personality Tammy Bruce is apparently all cut up that liberal blogs like Sadly, No! are painting her with the racist brush simply because she used a picture of a 'coon fishin' for a prize to illustrate her frustration with Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
Okay, let's give Tammy Bruce the benefit of the doubt here and pretend she's never been called out for racist behavior before. Let's take her at her word that the "Raccoon Is Just a Raccoon" (to be fair, she apparently has a pet raccoon (which sounds a lot more explanatory than it really is)) and that "When wild, paranoid leftists attack (and get delusional) they see not dead people, but racists."
So, do you know what that means? That means that Tammy Bruce is the fucking dumbest person ever. It means that she had no idea that people would see a picture of a raccoon, make the easy mental leap to its incredibly well-known abbreviation, and associate that word with the person she's making fun of. That's, like, remarkably dumb.
"What do you mean the picture of the tribesman chucking the spear is racist? It's obviously meant to imply that Obama is throwing away our children's future. Why are you being so paranoid and delusional?!"
"What?! It's a photo of a monkey relaxing on a porch! It's meant to imply that Obama's foreign policy needs to evolve past its current laissez-faire attitude. What a crazy liberal you are!!"
"Really? You're offended by that picture of rabbit sitting in the middle of a rain forest? That's obviously meant to imply… Well, that picture just came up at random on Google Image Search, and I thought it was cute."
So, what is it, Tammy Bruce? Are you one of the racist-iest people on the Internet, or are you one of the dumbest people on the Internet? You only get those two choices.
