Alternate title: Jay Carney is starting to crack under the strain.
Two thoughts about this:
- Apparently - and contra Andrew Cuomo - you can shuck and jive at an Obama press conference after all.
- I do not look forward with some interest to seeing how Pam Spaulding of Pandagon (and the above Huffington Post/Talking Points Memo writer, and every other person who freaked out about the Cuomo thing during the 2008 election) manages the mental readjustment necessary to simultaneously excuse attacking a white Hillary Clinton supporter for using the term then, while forgiving a white Obama staffer for using the term now. That's because I can't see how such a readjustment can be done without some form of trepanning.
Hey. Live by the hardline attitude on language, die by it. Not my fault.
