I want to talk today about a controversial word. It's a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it's indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man. To render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments.
And so he decided, if you can't beat them, you've got to join them. And he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren't expecting -- 'if that's what you want me to be, I'll be that.' Y'all know the word that I'm talking about. Obamacare. That's right! I said it and I'm not ashamed and neither is President Obama. Because he knows that of all his victories over two terms in office his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word.
Does MSNBC matter? It has become a parody of a propaganda outlet. At National Review Online, Charles C. Cooke ponders its "alternative universe." My own take is that as progressivism discredfits itself, MSNBC will become an uncomfortable embarrassment to its creators NBC News and Microsoft, a twenty-first century version of the minstrel show, something that seemed a good idea at the time, but which with the benefit of hindsight is an uncomfortable reminder of how seriously bigoted people were in an era we'd prefer to forget.
