I was hoping that George Soros' stenographers at Media Matters would come through with the full text of Mark Steyn's wonderful Qaddafi shtick from the opening of the Rush Limbaugh show yesterday, but they let me down. All we've got is a snippet which does little justice to Mark's Qaddafi material:
STEYN: I believe, by the way, that Joe Biden has actually hired Colonel Gaddafi's speechwriters. By the way, Colonel Gaddafi will be doing all five Sunday morning shows this Sunday, so they should wrap up around Thursday. And then he'll be doing Dancing with the Stars, warming up with a 90-minute routine to "Disco Inferno," followed by a four-hour "Macarena" and rounding things out with a three-day version of "Mambo Number 9."Moving on. Mark's latest Maclean's column exposes the absurdity of the charge that racism lies behind America's opposition to Obama's government-expanding agenda:
I suppose it’s possible that opposition to the federal government’s annexation of one-sixth of the U.S. economy is being driven by nostalgia for segregated lunch counters. And no doubt, if you write for the New York Times or teach race and gender studies at American colleges for long enough, it seems entirely reasonable, listening to a patient profess satisfaction with her present health insurance arrangements, to respond, “You know, if you re-sewed the back of that hospital gown so your ass wasn’t showing, your Klan sheet would be as good as new.”That's just a sampling. Read the rest.

To an incisive NPR racism analyst, the elderly gentleman telling his congressman “I’m very concerned by what I’ve heard about wait times for MRIs in Canada” is really saying “I’m unable to overcome my deep-seated racial anxieties about the sexual prowess of black males, especially now they’re giving prime-time press conferences every night.”
