Sweet, pretty, empty-headed Norah O’Donnell makes a fool of herself on MSNBC

by editor on April 12, 2010

The question of the day: What could a leftist possibly say on MSNBC that would be so far out, so ridiculous, so inane that even the network’s other leftists scoff?

The answer: Norah O’Donnell’s claim that if a Republican says a Democrat is athletic, it’s some kind of nefarious secret code that really means “negro.”

Newt Gingrich, speaking at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, said that “shooting three-point shots may be clever, but it doesn’t put anybody to work.”

Referring to President Obama, Gingrich said, “What we need is a President, not an athlete. We need somebody who actually focuses on getting people back to work.”

That’s when Morning Joe guest host O’Donnell accused Gingrich of being a racist.

“But I’m not sure what he means by this particular sound bite,” O’Donnell said, “and I think it’s open to some criticism because it suggests that the President is an athlete and some people may suggest, you know, because all black people are good athletes. I mean that’s what it sort of sounds like to me.

The reaction on the Morning Joe set was instantaneous. Even the other leftists couldn’t help but make fun of O’Donnell’s “interesting” interpretation.

Apparently, the Republicans racist code is an ever changing thing. Last year, they told us the word “socialist” was code for “negro.” This year, “athlete” is the new code word. And later this year, it’s going to be “incumbent.”

I am someone who believes in:

The reduction of the size and power of the federal government
The federal government operating within constitutional limits
Expanding federal government is antithesis to liberty
Equal opportunity does not necessarily mean equal outcome
The rejection of socialism
Freedom

The current administration rejects all the above
Therefore I reject the current administration.

I am a concerned AMERICAN
Only politicians and journalists are stupid enough to confuse this with racism.

This whole ordeal made me chuckle. Surely everyone knows Obama is the Greatest Athlete Ever, just like he’s the One True President. I mean, he could have said that goofy chimp in office. Might have been more realistic, with how Obama carries himself, like he’s the leader of the pack, but that pack is full of backstabbing, lying thugs.
Actually, can I vote for a goofy chimp? I’m sure with enough time, the chimp would actually do something positive for the American people.
I don’t see that coming from Obama any time soon.

“i know plenty of blacks who cant play ball, but for a whiteboy i am pretty good. so what does that make me.” a human being that plays basketball, plays it well and enjoys it.

“i didnt agree with bush either so what does that make me.” A citizen.

I have said it before, liberals and progressives do not want us to get past race. They want everything to be colored in racism. They want chaos and disorganization because that is where they thrive. If liberals/progressives fail to divide people into controllable groups, they will be weaken if can agree to disagree without resorting to stupidity. Then people will agree on nurturing the positive and a lot will get done the right way. Doing things the right way is not what the progressives want because they cannot get any money out of it nor control. It is all evil. Racism is a smoke screen to hide the shenanigans done in the backroom. They are not interested in making people grow they are only interested in keeping people immature and down so as to exercise the most effective control upon the people.

KQ, Spot on about the left & race relations. Now I have said here before that sport has always been ahead of politics in terms of bringing the races together, but there are & will always be racial steriotypes in sports…

White Guys who dunk
Black Quarterbacks
White Receivers
Black Coaches
White Boxers
Black Hockey Players

…& I could go on. But more or less, in sports, merit is what matters. It’s about performing, Period. That’s what matters, it’s not about political correctness, not about quotas, none of that. Can you win when you step into the arena of sport? If so, then your in. That’s all I care about, & all races & colors are invited to compete. Show us what you got, that is 1 of the things I love about World Cup Soccer. It’s the same game everywhere on the planet, & then we play it out to see who the best is. As it should be.

It says “Morning Grind” under her picture. I think that’s sexist, ’cause, y’know, all women are strippers.

OK, so Obama plays basketball, & can shoot the ball, so that makes him an athelete. Or does it? Have you seen this guy throw a baseball? My God, he’s thrown out the 1st pitch twice that I can remember & I will not insult girls by saying he throws like a girl. Also, we all hear reports that he golfs whenever he can, but we never see him. I really want to see his swing, because there is a ton of mechanics involved in a golf swing, & despite what some people say, it does require a fair amount of atheltic ability. I have a hard time believing he can break 100 on an actual 18 hole course of at least 6,000 yards.

The man is a powerhouse on the golf course!

Don’t get me wrong I think she’s really stupid but she was smart enough that half way through that really stupid statement you could tell that she knew she had screwed up, her eyes started to widen and she started to slow down a little. It was probably the looks on the faces of the others around that table, like what the fk are you talkin about?

She looks horizontally “athletic” but she’s not black that I can tell. So much for that theory.

I’m going to be a lib for a min:

Some people would suggest that O’Donnell didn’t know what she was talking about because she was drunk, you know, because all the Irish are drunks, or so it would be suggested.

At least Norah O’Donnell can comfort herslef with the knowlege that very few people actually SAW her make a fool of herself. After all, it WAS on MSNBC.

That changed the moment O’Reilly placed that clip over and over again last night. Bernie called her dumb last night just like I did and empty just like IHTM did. It is obvious to clear minded people that is what she is.

Also the way Bush was able to duck so effectively and twice at a fast projectile (a shoe). I don’t think Obama would have those reflexes. I sincerely doubt it. Now as far as this comment is concern, liberal women are a phenomenon either they are ugly and dumb or they are pretty and dumb.

Also liberals/progressives are the true racists in all of this. Seeing racism in everything an opponent says even if it is obviously not the case is a mark of a closeted racist as far as I am concerned.

woah woah woah woah WOAH!

now comparing bush and obama in reflexes is incredibly unfair, one of them is a flabby, showboating, wannabe athlete

and bush is a ninja

its just not right to compare a talentless man with a master of the art of stealth and evasion

Glad to see you think it was hilarious for our President Bush being attacked by a muslim scum bag, hopefully I get the chance to roll on the ground laughing my ass when one attacks obama and even better, I hope his reflexes are alot of worse than Bushes were? Now that will be exceptionally hilarious. LOL

I think it is racism. The only reason Gingrich said Obama was athletic was because he is a (half)black guy. So it was giving him the benefit of his (half)black skin…HaHa!

Have you seen the videos of him playing hoops against North Carolina from last year? It was a joke.

The media has been pushing this Obama as athlete for two years now. It’s pathetic. I have a relative who met President Bush and he was talking to the Secret Service guys and they said that Bush was a supreme athlete in his workouts. And that the Secret Service had a whale of a time keeping up with him.

Obama is NOT an athlete.
