Cadillac Tight: Bless their heart, another race card

Cadillac Tight: Bless their heart, another race card

While covering the Major League Baseball playoffs, the LA Times managed to work in a few lines about the racist monkey Sarah Palin.

On Friday night, the Angels’ Rally Monkey let down the home crowd in Anaheim. Although the team triumphed Sunday night in Boston, you can’t credit the monkey unless he sneaked into Jared Weaver’s suitcase.

On Saturday, John McCain’s rally monkey, Sarah Palin, popped up in Carson. Fresh off of her victory over herself at the debate, her campaign let Palin out of the cage to rev up the fan base.

Only problem was that, according to an Associated Press analysis, the lady maverick made some “racially tinged” remarks about Barack Obama. Someone might want to inform Sarah that although comments like that may play well in Wasilla, here in Southern California we celebrate diversity along with divisional championships.

Now back to the other primate.

The author sees fit to quote an AP analyst, but doesn’t see fit to quote the alleged racist remarks. I guess we are supposed to take AP’s word for it.

2 questions:

First, what in the hell does Sarah Palin have to do with Major League Baseball?

Second, can anyone imagine the outrage and cries of racism if Michelle Obama were compared to a caged monkey?

“Someone might want to inform Sarah that although comments like that may play well in Wasilla, here in Southern California we celebrate diversity along with divisional championships.”

They seem to play pretty well in certain Chicago churches, too, don’t they?
