The topic of race has been a hot one the past few weeks and now it appears that veiled (or not so veiled) racial comments about Barack Obama will be an issue in the 2008 Democratic primary race. During this segment today on Tucker, the subject of racism came up and Tucker Carlson had the bad taste to frame it using this statement by NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, in regards to Obama:

"You can't shuck and jive at a press conference."

It's universally accepted that Tucker is a schmuck (he once again says liberals are fascists) and none of the guests wanted to touch that framing. I was really disappointed to hear former CNN anchor Bob Franken jump to Cuomo's defense by referencing an old George Carlin comedy bit, in which he says all white guys think it's cool to act like they're black. That's very interesting. Cuomo has since released a statement claiming his comments were taken out of context, but as Pam says -- Oh no he didn't...
