Janeane, isn’t that sort of uh…racist?

Ah! Our adorable little Jannie Garofalo! She’s up to her crazy, angry progressive girlfriend hijinks again.

Garofalo also said successful businessman Herman Cain is either being paid to run or is suffering from Stockholm syndrome because he is a "person of color" running as a Republican in the party's presidential primary.

"[He's] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more," Garofalo said

"But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like 'I love that, that can't be racist. He's a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.' Or 'it's a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It's a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.'"

I dunno, isn’t it a little, uh… racist to assume that a “person of color” is unable to think for himself, Janeane? Especially a very successful one with a BA in mathematics and a MS in computer science? Or do you just think that all “persons of color” need to be told how to “think right” (think “right” - that’s just a figure of speech, don’t get your bundies grundled) because they are completely unable to grasp the complexity of your progressive world?

But then, maybe it takes a comedian and provocateur  educated in History and American Studies (what exactly does “studies” include, I wonder?) to recognize a victim of Stockholm syndrome.

And as I’ve mentioned before, Jannie, nice tats:

For the record though – just my uneducated opinion - I don’t think you got your money’s worth from the cosmetic surgeon. Looks a little, eh…stretchy around the mouth. But with your style sense, I don’t think you really have to worry about it.

And that ends my lesson in “American Studies” for the day.

Ask yourself: would your dog pee on your leg? I guess if your dog owns you, it does help explain that whole “angry woman” thing.
