There Are Still 5 A’s in ‘RAAAAACISM!’

At least in English. The Polish translation, I’m not sure:

Linda Wertheimer, National Public Radio: So today [Mitt Romney is in] Poland. Why is he stopping in Poland. What does he hope to accomplish with that?
Cokie Roberts: Well, I think part of it was a desire to portray President Obama as something of a wimp, and say he’s abandoned Eastern Europe. But look, you remember well the Reagan Democrats. Those ethnic white voters who had been Democrats for many years; turned out for Ronald Reagan, and have been fairly predictable Republicans since then. Now it’s a smaller percentage of the population — of the voting population — than it used to be, but white voters are still much more Republican than any other group in the electorate. They went for McCain in 2008 by 55%. And I think that getting those ethnic voters excited is really what Romney has in mind here. It’s more for the folks at home — the descendents of the people that he will be speaking to — in Poland.

This is how you know Polish-Americans are now perfectly assimilated: Liberals view them as just another bunch of racist Republicans.

UPDATE: According to liberals, everything Romney says is racist, including “America,” “free” and “working.”

    I’m not sure the Polish word for “raaaaacist” has any vowels at all.

    In fact it may sound exactly like what I say to people who call me raaaaacist.

    Those commentators are correct, you know. It was racists who beat Carter in 1980 — peanut-hating white folks.

    -First of all: How can you take someone seriously if they’re named ‘Cokie’?

    -Secondly: Perhaps Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne [nee’ Boggs] Roberts is engaging in a little bit of bigotry, considering she’s from a very old American family that is whiter than white bread.  Perhaps she’s never lost her distaste for those peasant Eastern Europeans and those swarthy Southern Europeans.
