latest racism update

From the inimitable Rush Limbaugh, on 21 May:
They forgot affirmative action for black guys. And because of that, every bit of their plan has gone up in smoke now, because they -- if -- they had to come out in favor of affirmative action for black guys, and that's -- see, this is one of the things that really irritates the women. And there are women all over this country fit to be tied -- trust me on this. And it's -- one of the things is affirmative action is exactly -- it's, you know, liberals eventually are going to be devoured by their own policies. And it has happened here. Because Barack Obama is an affirmative action candidate. There's no question, the way he is being treated by the drive-bys and so forth and so on. The way he's been puffed up here with the magical, messiah-type message with no criticism allowed.
So, it's just -- they just forgot that one thing: affirmative action for black guys. And if they had remembered to oppose that, then they wouldn't face the situation they face today.

Yeah I know. I am just keeping track so I can say I kept track, particularly if Obama loses. What's interesting about this rant is that the bourgeois media is completely ignoring it; it has drawn the ire of the usual media monitoring blogs and such, but this is worse than the comment that got the fat man fired from Monday Night Football.
