No longer feeling any hesitation or social awkwardness about playing the race card, hard, against Obama, I noted last week that the offensive race baiting unleashed by the conservative press has become epidemic.

Case in point, The Drudge Report. Note this headline from Friday.


And note this headline from Sunday:

RACE CASE: Holder May Slap AZ With Profiling Suit...

That's right. In the span of 48 hours, Drudge hyped two separate news stories about our black POTUS and his black Attorney General with the same "RACE CASE" headline.

Pretty subtle stuff, eh?
