Political humor website Wonkette has long been trending toward nihilistic snark for snark’s sake, but Jack Stuef’s column “honoring” Trig Palin’s birthday is about the most irredeemably vile, unfunny thing I’ve ever seen. As if jokes about Trig’s Down Syndrome aren’t bad enough on their own, Stuef goes the extra mile to pen kneeslappers about incest, child rape, and fetal alcohol syndrome. I don’t want to reproduce too much of it here, but this quote is fairly representativerepresentative: “Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.)”

What heck here’s another medium that can be eyeballed…
I found the video in an article comparing the 9/12 Protest and the HuffPo/Reich “Grandparent’s Day” demonstration for the health plan. Worth a read.
Weird how many examples there are suddenly. It’s like the Borg Collective is broadcasting the “play racism card” to everyone’s implants at once. Here’s a sad-but-funny example from Wonkette (where she’s very excited to have found some Tea Partiers who got the wrong picture online :
… these pictures are actually from the Million Man March of 1997, an event attended by, ahem, colored people.
Not only did the Million Man March actually attract a million people, it was led by wingnuts’ second-most-hated negro person, Louis Farrakhan, a real black Muslim.
Frankly, there is nothing more embarrassing for a colored-hating Real American than not being able to tell from an aerial photo of an immense crowd that those people aren’t even white! This is why photos cannot be trusted, if taken from a distance.
Anyway, about 70,000 sad fat white losers carpooled to DC on Saturday, to whine about everything (blacks), and to add to their shame, the fake picture they’re claiming shows a million wingnuts is actually a million black men listening to an Angry Black Leader.
It’s like the author is tapping some long suppressed lava- flow of racial fantasy that’s been building underneath the rocky crust of their minds. “Black black black-tty-black black. Whitey-white, blacky white!”
Update: Well, it turns out the photo in question was from a 1997 Promise Keepers Rally, not the Million Man March. Not that is fact will ruin leftie racialist fantasies, of course.
