Homer Garofalo

Consider this pearl of wisdom and insight delivered by Janeane Garofalo:
"Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one and the same." 
"People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say 'Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.'"
I've never been much of a fan of The Simpsons, but my son was and he used to quote this interchange between Lisa and Homer and it always made me giggle: “(Lisa) “I’m going to become a vegetarian” (Homer) “Does that mean you’re not going to eat any pork?” “Yes” “Bacon?” “Yes Dad” Ham?” “Dad all those meats come from the same animal” “Right Lisa, some wonderful, magical animal!”"

Sage: But what about Clarence Thomas?
Janeane: Racists
Sage: Colin Powell?
Janeane: Racists 
Sage: Condalisa Rice?
Janeane: Racists
Sage:  But Janeane all of those black people are from the same Republican Party.
Janeane:  Right Sage, some wonderful, magical non-racist Republican Party!
By the way, who is Janeane Garofalo?
