Toure: "Old, White" McCain "Tarring" Rice Due To "Black Inferiority"

TOURE: McCain tried to make [Susan Rice] un-nominatable and manipulate Obama to look weak and disappoint the left if he backed down from the appointment. McCain asserted an inappropriate political cover up while pursuing an inappropriate political attack. He also gave us the horrible optics of he and Sen. Lindsey Graham as old, white, establishment folks who wrongly and repeatedly attacked a much younger black woman— following an election in which blacks and women strongly favored Democrats. Looks like the GOP is already laying the foundation for losing in 2016.

I leave it to you to decide how much of the tarring of Rice as incompetent and unqualified is about the myth of black inferiority and female inferiority and how much is about McCain flailing at anyone within arm’s reach, desperate for a dinghy as he feels himself sinking, descending down the ladder of power, dropping toward irrelevance.
