Left Concludes: We're All Racists

Now, you know a word has lost all meaning when Jimmy Carter finally gets around to saying it.

America's angriest has-been just had to weigh in on the Joe Wilson affair, linking it to inherent racism, following in the wispy footsteps of every bitter lefty blogger.

Check it out, check it outers:

FORMER PRESIDENT JIMMY CARTER: I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.

Carter, who I'm now convinced is really Maureen Dowd in a fright mask, seems unaware that even the White House doesn't see the racism he sees. This is what the Gibbenator had to say:

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Well, let's take a look at what former President Carter said. The answer that I'm going to give is the same answer that I gave on Sunday, when I was asked this question. The president does not believe that that criticism comes based on the color of his skin.

Instead of enjoying his golden years doing acrostics, while waiting for "Judging Judy" to come on, President Peanut feels compelled to remind us all why he sucked as a leader: He's just a bitter man who always saw America as part of the problem, never the solution. So even when America elects a black man as president, the act only masks a more sinister urge.

Remember when Eric Holder said it was time for America to talk frankly about race? Well, the time's now and for the left, that "frank" talk boils down to this: We're all racists.

End of discussion.

And that makes me think: If we all agree with the Carters of the world, will they finally stop their race-whining? I doubt it. If anything, once we say we're all racists, they'll probably say we just don't mean it. And then they'll accuse us of double secret racism.

The hypocrisy in all this? There are far more racists among the race-baiters. I mean, you can't get more racist than hating black conservatives just because they're black.

Look, here's the obvious: President Obama won. That wouldn't happen in a racist country. Not only did he win, but he enjoys good faith among people like me — who didn't vote for him. I admit I find his message at times to be as wrongheaded as Carter's, but Obama seems like a good guy. Especially when he called Kanye West a jackass.

I'd like him even more if he'd say the same thing about Carter.

And if you disagree with me, then you're probably a racist.
