Oh, All Right, I'll Take the Bait

Be ye advised: Token conservative Jeff Jacoby at the Boston Globe has a dream. One day, journalists will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

If the color of Obama's skin is immaterial to his fitness to occupy the White House, surely the color of any other man's skin is immaterial to his fitness to cover the White House.

They better not have boobs, though. God knows those things get in the way of typing.


  1. My journalism has a color. It's yellow.

  2. Perhaps installing higher desks in newspaper offices would help keep the slamming of huge jugs into keyboards to a manageable minimum.

  3. Wow. Talk about your mainstream media conspiracies. It appears that the Globe and the NYT have conspired to declare that racism is like, so 2007. Right before MLK Day and the historic inauguration of our first black president.

    Because like being an Evangelical or a person with Type O blood, being black is something you choose and/or which is invisible to the naked eye, making it impossible for others to discriminate against you or for you to have a different (albeit involuntarily different) perspective from that of your peers.

  4. See, I just like to lay mine right across the keyboard and let them do the typing for me. It really saves on manicure costs.
