Your Black World: In Less Than 24 Hrs. McCain Changes Mind On Gwen Ifill

John McCain, who less than 24 hrs. ago, expressed complete confidence in Gwen Ifill’s ability to be “totally objective,” now wants to recant his statements. What prompted this erratic move? Only time can tell. In an interview this morning on the laughable FOX News Comedy show, FOX & Friends, John McCain betrayed his previous statement, and embraced the fascistic right-wing attack on Ifill. Sen. McCain remarked that he only wished “they had picked a moderator that isn’t writing a book favorable to Barack Obama.” Adding that, “Life isn’t fair.” Oh, what’s a mega-wealthy 13-cars-and-9-houses-having White male to do (Read: Sarcasm). Well, Senator, you and I both agree on one thing. Life isn’t fair. But before you self-congratulate, think of the billions of Black, Brown, Red and Yellow peoples of the world, and the everyday horror they are subdued by. An horror simply called, reality. Now think of how your overpriviledged status so glaringly contrasts their underprivileged plight. As for whom is both suitable and competent to replace Gwen Ifill on such short notice, I’m not sure, but in the words of a famed Gov. from Alaska, “I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.”
