While the GE shareholders meltdown is interesting – see here for the basic story (H/T the Rhetorician), Ace of Spades for an observation on how the market is voting, and Hot Air for what was either a prescient or instigating Bill O’Reilly segment – we’re going to segue over to Little Miss Attila instead. Mostly because she has what was really the proper take on the Garofalo interview that might have spawned this mess for GE:
Janeane Garofalo is absolutely right: the tea parties are racism straight up. Because if it had been racism on the rocks, PJM would have gotten someone else to do interviews that day, instead of asking Zo to do two jobs. And if it had been racism-and-water, the organizers of the event wouldn’t have imposed upon Alfonzo by asking him to the podium. If it were racism-and-soda, they wouldn’t have recruited Zo to work for PJTV at all, but would have allowed him to continue commenting on events from his living room in the SoCal desert.
Which is to say, eye-rolling mockery. Personally, I think that it was a shame that it wasn’t a Racism Sunrise. That’s where you get Zo actually on the schedule to speak in the first place… and I hope that somebody’s kicking themselves over that. ‘Course, I’m also hoping that somebody’s kicking themselves over this elementary concept, too.
