Beck, on Barack Obama: "If you start to, you know, delve around the edges, say, 'Wait a minute, isn't he mixed race? Weren't we told that last year?' Or whatever, biracial. Not allowed to say that anymore."
Beck responded by saying "he's (Obama) very white in many ways," adding, "Gee, can I even say that?
Can I even say that without somebody else starting a campaign saying, 'What does he mean, "He's very white?" ' He is. He's very white."
After the interview, Beck attempted to clarify his comments to executive producer and head writer of The Glenn Beck Program, Steve Burguiere, who is known on-air as "Stu."
Beck claimed that Obama "is colorless," adding that "as a white guy ... [y]ou don't notice that he is black. So he might as well be white, you know what I mean?"
In addition, Beck said: "I guarantee you, there will be blogs today that will have me being a racist because I say that."'
And why might that be?
Well, Glenn, this blog will have you as a studiedly clueless tool who ought to be subbing for 'Jingles the Clown' on some low-rent kiddie cartoon show, instead of spreading your fertilizer on CNN.

Some of you may have been following the recent controversy involving the American political campaign of John Edwards, and the subsequent efforts by hypocritical religious zealots (represented by William Donahue) to remove citizen activists from said campaign on linguistic pretexts.
Let us call this what it is...An attempt, sadly successful in this case, to dictate terms to one's ideological opponent by using the fear of irrevocable damage to one's perception by the masses.
A cheap tactic that stains its users whatever their ideological perspective.
Thus, if it will help to force the modern politician to reconsider the convenient stratagem of 'bolting' citizen activists into their apparatus as a sop to plurality, only to drop them like they were hot whenever some disreputable pressure group threatens to disrupt their easy fiction of being all things to all people...
I am Spartacus.
