Another week, another racist or sexist slur from the frat boys at MSNBC. Several of the Republican-leaning hosts took time off from their favorite pastime—ie, Hillary Hate—to use self-described "ethnic" commentary to describe Obama's recent, not-so-very-good performance at a Pennsylvania bowling alley.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews quipped to political analyst Michelle Bernard, "You know, Michelle—and this gets very ethnic, but the fact that he’s good at basketball doesn’t surprise anybody ... But the fact that he’s that terrible at bowling does make you wonder." The Hardball host said Obama’s bowling "form" wasn’t "the most macho." Watch it, courtesy of Media Matters:
Earlier on Hardball, Matthews made some "off-color" jokes to Obama surrogate Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) about Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's former pastor: "Let me ask you about this Jeremiah Wright story. You go to a church. I assume it's a black church."
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida, also repeatedly mocked Obama's bowling performance as "dainty" and "prissy."
