“Chink in the armor” is a non-racial idiom, not a single word, denoting:

The film Slavery By Another Name recently was released.  It is a moving historical account of the post-emancipation enslavement by another name of blacks through a variety of segregationist and other laws and policies.

Unfortunately, but predictably, some used the movie release as an opportunity to score policital points against Republicans both past and present.

I previously posted regarding Pete Hoekstra’s commercial about jobs being shipped to China, and the cries of racism because an Asian woman played the role of an Asian woman in China in the commercial.

The woman’s identity was outed by a blog called Angry Asian Man, which noted what was about to...

As the pro-Obama media pushes harder and harder to make race the issue as to every policy dispute, race actually is becoming less and less an issue in society, Intermarriage rates soar as stereotypes fall:

According to the Pew study, about 15 percent of new marriages in 2010 crossed racial or ethnic lines,...

Can you imagine the uproar if a major conservative publication ran an image like this?

The image is from New York Magazine, however, and it’s in support of gay marriage, so the response will be muted, Obama Gay Marriage Evolution Watch: Day 468.

A writer at WaPo does take some offense:

I posted earlier in the week about the Super Bowl commercial run by Pete Hoekstra, who is running for Senate from Michigan against Debbie Stabenow.

The commercial was part of a DebbieSpendItNow.com campaign highlighting the loss of jobs in Michig...

This could not wait for Saturday Night, because it is just way too bizarre an attempt to turn nothing into a charge of racism.

Short background:  Pete Hoekstra, running for Senate from Michigan against Debbie Stabenow, ran a commercial in Michigan during the Super Bowl about jobs being shipped to China, and...

We have been here before.  The accusation that harsh criticism of Barack Obama or his policies constitutes the use of “racially tinged” code words.

Invariably, the code word problem is defined in such a way that the accusation is self-fulfilling; the lack of an actual...

Haven’t had much time to devote to the card game because I’m too busy trying to save the Republican Party from itself.

But links are being saved, and I don’t want this one to grow stale.

I was hesitant to post the video below, but since it is receiving a lot of press coverage, particularly in Utah, it’s not like I’m helping spread something that’s not already out there.  And you have to see what is coming down the pike.

At the Saturday Night Card Game, a man’s words are his words.  Words matter.

And you can’t take them back.  The players have a long memory, almost as long a memory as the internet.

And so it has come to this (emphasis mine):

“Bombastic” is Ann Coulter’s favorite new word in attacking Newt Gingrich.  (irony noted)

Coulter was on O’Reilly last night lambasting Newt as “bombastic” with no policy accomplishments.

Mark Levin, no supporter of Newt, has come to his defense, much as Andrew McCarthy

This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:

Glenn Beck doesn’t like Newt.  That didn’t keep Newt from appearing on Beck’s radio show and taking the hard questions.

Calling Tad Devine.  You reopened the door by claiming the Romney campaign was bringing Jeremiah Wright back into play when clearly it was not.  Basically, you told people not to think about the pink elephant.
