Why Did Jesse Go Nuts?
by

Sure, Obama’s been “talking down to black folks” — as Jim Geraghty points out, he does that to everyone. But why does that prompt Jesse Jackson to engage in castration fantasies? My sense is that many of the old-guard race hustlers are seething at the prospect of a black president who owes them nothing. That’s perhaps the most appealing thing about Obama — that he could leave Jesse Jackson and his ilk in the dust. What was so upsetting and damaging about Obama’s association with Jeremiah Wright, of course, was that it made it look as though Obama has more of a connection to toxic racial politics than he’d seemed to. Having Jesse Jackson upset with him is sort of the Wright issue in reverse, which is to say that it’s great for Obama.
