Chris Matthews at MSNBC had a great comment on Der Trump boycotting Der Debate on Der Fox News:
“Who’s going to watch a debate between the two Cuban guys? Who’s going to watch a debate between Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz? Who cares? Because you know they’ve been sort of fighting in this little interleague fight over who’s the hawkish guy or whatever. Who’s going to watch that Thursday night? Maybe I’m building it up too much.”Mark Finkelstein at News Busters is all pissy over Matthews calling them Cubans.
Oh grow up.
However, that said, lefties call conservative Cubans "Cuban" instead of Hispanic is that the Left wants to pretend Cubans are not Hispanic, because according to liberals, only liberals can be Hispanic. In this context, though, he was lookng for a similarity between the N. 2 and No. 3 men in the race.
It is not racist to call a man with Cuban heritage a Cuban. Ditto Irish, Hungarian, Italian, Swiss (Surber is Swiss; get me a bow and arrow and put an apple on your head, and I will show you).*
I am tired of this gotcha by conservatives who apply the left's silly rules to the left. PC conservatism is not for me. Hypersensitivity is for liberals and little girls. Trying to turn liberal rules around on liberals only makes you look as stupid as they are.
And Matthews is right. Who wants to look at the also-rans. I am not pro-Trump or anti-Trump. Right now, I can see him topping 50% in Iowa and running the table. But who said I know anything about it? Trump had nothing to gain in another debate. He wanted out of this debate. Fox News gave him an exit.
I also know MSNBC and CNN are laughing at Fox News right now. Megyn Kelly is not worth fighting for. I believe the decision was Rupert's and not Roger's. Fox News is becoming just another dumb news channel.
