Chris Matthews: Romney’s response to Obama’s “revenge” remark is racist “ethnic talk” or something

“MSNBC’s excitable boys and girls who, with their (at most) one-track minds and exquisitely sensitive olfactory receptors, sniff racism in any criticism of their pin-up.”

 — George Will, October 1, 2012 

Indeed, and MSNBC’s chief race-baiter, Chris Matthews, is at it again.

What Trump and Sununu have to do with this is anyone’s guess. The funniest part, though, is that the hebetudinous Tingles (a redundancy, I know) clearly didn’t know who injected the term “revenge” into this year’s election. When the MSNBC host (I have no idea who she is, nor do I care) informed Matthews that revenge as a justification to vote had been originated by Obama himself, and Romney was simply responding to the President, he continued with his “Romney’s a racist” rant undaunted:

“It’s always been the undercoating of this campaign … that ethnic talk. This talk about revenge is of a piece with that. Scare people. Say these people are out to get even with you. I mean it’s … it’s …you know what it is. We grew up with it. We thought we got past it. It’s there.”

So according to Matthews, the word “revenge” is now an ethnic slur by Republicans, even when said term is introduced to this year’s political discourse by Obama. Amazing! George Will is right about the hyper-sensitive olfactory receptors possessed by those MSNBC boys and girls. Too bad they don’t have any brains to go along with them.

Update: To refresh your memory, this is the ad Tingles claims is a loathsome example “ethnic talk” which so offends his post-racial sensibilities.
