Too absurd for words.
...for even the liberals at Politico. From Dylan Byers:
MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry said Sunday that "Obamacare," the nickname for President Obama's healthcare legislation, was a “derogatory term... conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man."Four questions for Harris-Perry, who was unavailable for an interview, according to an MSNBC spokesperson:1. Was "Hillarycare" a derogatory term conceived of by wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a woman?2. Was "Reaganomics" a derogatory term conceived of by wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a... Hollywood actor?3. How do you square your assertion -- that the term was conceived of by "wealthy white men" -- with the fact that "Obamacare" was first used by a female lobbyist named Jeanne Schulte Scott, who in 2007 wrote: "We will soon see a 'Giuliani-care' and 'Obama-care' to go along with 'McCain-care,' 'Edwards-care,' and a totally revamped and remodeled 'Hillary-care' from the 1990s"?4. What is your evidence, if any, for the assertion that Obamacare is a racially loaded term?
SoRo: I'll add a 5th: Barack Obama and many other Democratic leaders have used the term themselves so how can it be a racially-loaded term?
