Emily's Believe it or Not

Imagine the following scenario: A super wealthy, white woman, married to a prominent political figure I might add, walks into a pseudo refugee camp filled with (mostly African-American) people recently made homeless thanks to the likes of Ivan, Frances and Charles, then proceeds to wax philanthropic about the little children in said refugee camp by stating: "Let them go naked for a little while." She doesn't think clothes should be at the top of the priority list. They can manage.

Can you imagine that happening? I mean, the world was astonished when Marie Antoinette said, "Let them eat cake," (though it's been said she actually never said that), can you begin to imagine if a rich, white woman said that to a bunch of black stranded children? The media would be on her like white on rice.

Well, as you might have guessed by now, you don't actually need to imagine that scenario because it happened. Only the reason you haven't heard about it is because the rich, white snot in question is a democrat. Had Laura Bush or Mrs. Helms ever said anything as atrocious, the media would have beat them to a bloody pulp. But our dear wannabe first lady, Teresa Heinz Kerry is the lady of linguistics here and the media won't touch her with a 10 foot pole because she belongs to the exempt-from-everything crowd affectionately known as Democrats. Read about it here.
