It appears that Garofalo and Olbermann would be a match made in wherever liberals think they will end up when they join the ever-increasing ranks of post mortem Democrat voters. Or perhaps not, as it sounds like he would spend an eternity attempting to out incoherent her. Janene is a liberal actress and therefore leftist guru in the style of Sean Penn and Charlie Sheen.
Anyway Garofalo is not only a liberal guru, but also an eminent psychobabbler who is in her own mind competent to diagnose just what is wrong with Herman Cain from the Democrat perspective. She is claiming that he has Stockholm syndrome and has begun to identify with his ‘oppressors’ from the Republican Party. Or perhaps he is being paid off, after all it is inconceivable that a successful black businessman would not join the party of slavery, secession, segregation, and socialism:
"[He's] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican Party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more," Garofalo said.Liberals have been playing the game of plantation politics for so long that they cannot imagine anyone who is black, female, Hispanic, other minority ethnic group, or a worker seeing their future anywhere other than in the warm embrace of the nanny state, with the political successors to Sherriff Clark, George Wallace, Andrew Johnson, and the traditions so widely embodied in the KKK and Jim Crow Laws.
"But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like 'I love that, that can't be racist. He's a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.' Or 'it's a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It's a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.” …
"And I feel like wouldn't that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. 'Let's get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party,'" Garofalo said.
"He's a businessman," she said sarcastically. "Who ever pays him. And there may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome. There may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome in there because anytime I see a person of color or a female in the Republican party or the conservative movement or the Tea Party, I wonder how they could be trying to curry with the oppressors. Is it Stockholm syndrome or does somebody pay them?”
Condescension becomes them.
