It's becoming incredibly clear since Barack Obama's horrible performance in last week's debate that his fans in the media are more and more desperate.
On Sunday, HBO's Bill Maher said to his followers on Twitter, "John Sununu is a racist fat f--k" (serious vulgarity warning):
John Sununu says Obama is lazy and not that bright - cant believe he'd perpetuate the stereotype that John Sununu is a racist fat fuck
— Bill Maher (@billmaher) October 7, 2012
As Mediaite's Andrew Kirell noted Monday, this was in response to Sununu's comments to MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell last week that Obama's poor debate showing indicated laziness on his part.
Of course, the Left can't have that said about a black president because to them it's racist.
Never mind that insiders have commented for years Obama doesn't seem all that interested in the day to day machinations of governing.
Up to this point, no one has been accused of racism for saying so.
Complicating matters, Maher himself commented after the debate that maybe Obama does need a teleprompter. On his HBO program Friday, Maher said, "It looks like [Obama] took my million and spent it all on weed."
Why is it okay for Maher and his ilk to point out the president's shortcomings - regardless of how rare THAT is! - but racist for Sununu to?
Sadly, that's waaaaay too deep a question for Maher.
