Strange New Right Wing Talking Point

Ready for it?

Barack Obama's approval ratings are too high because we include black people in our calculations of overall popularity.

Don't blame me, blame Doug at Hey, Jenny Slater! for stepping on this particular nerve. The comment section of that post is worth reading as well, if you feel like joining in the debate.

Strange enough, we in New Orleans already explored this school of political theory while explaining former Rep. William "Dolla Bill" Jefferson's defeat in November.

I thought a talking point was something that a lot of people do in concert?

Since when did we use it to describe a single quote made by only one man?
