Maiello: Defeat the Press
Wolraich: Obama at the Gates of... Gates
I wrote a sarcastic bad piece about Romney's NAACP appearance and deleted it when I realized that to stoop to Romney's level of disingenuousness in such an article is to mimic what I hate, thereby indirectly partaking of it and glorifying it.
Then I wrote what I thought was a much better piece with what I thought was a balanced perspective. In attempting to preview it, I managed to delete it. I take all of this as a sign. Stop trying to write about this subject. Suffice it to say that Romney's appearance was disgusting---in concept, premeditation, delivery, hokiness, and disingenuousness. In short, Romney's performance yesterday makes me embarrassed to be an old white man.
I really wish someone would write a good blog on this subject. I'm out of time and out of sorts. But maybe Romney's act was so transparent and despicable that it is just like a turd in a punch bowl---there's not that much more you can really say about it.
