CNN interviews Dave Matthews, political soothsayer:
I found there’s a fairly blatant racism in America that’s already there, and I don’t think I noticed it when I lived here as a kid… There’s a good population of people in this country that are terrified of the president only because he’s black, even if they don’t say it. And I think a lot of them, behind closed doors, do say it.
Maybe I’m paranoid about it, but I don’t think someone who disagreed as strongly as they do with Obama — if it was Clinton — would have stood up and screamed at him during his speech.
Can anbody old enough to remember the Clinton era — and Dave Matthews is, since I was listening to his CDs at the time — take seriously the idea that conservatives were less angry at Clinton than Obama? Perhaps Matthews was stuck under the table and dreaming.
