You know that episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia where Charlie is pretending to be Sam Waterson’s character on Law & Order and at one point yells “Objection: extremely racist!”? Well, that’s what immediately came to mind when I saw this:
U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, a Hebron Republican, compared Obama and his message for change similar to a “snake oil salesman.”
He said in his remarks at the GOP dinner that he also recently participated in a “highly classified, national security simulation” with Obama.
“I’m going to tell you something: That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button,” Davis said. “He could not make a decision in that simulation that related to a nuclear threat to this country.”
Um, Geoff, calling a black man who’s three years younger than you “boy”? Extremely racist. Moreover, I’m curious about what this simulation was, exactly. I probably won’t find out, as it’s apparently “highly classified”. But then again, if it’s “highly classified”, what the hell is Davis doing talking about it at a local party fundraiser? It sure sounds like a situation from which Davis’ conclusion about Obama’s fitness for office and mine would differ greatly, but I don’t think I’m alone in being interested in how Obama would respond to what Davis deems a “nuclear threat to this country”.
