August 25, 2013 1:43 PM Barack Obama said he identified with the parents of Trayvon Martin. How dare he!

By Kathleen Geier

In a column that refines race-baiting concern-trolling to a high art, Kathleen Parker is clearly auditioning for the role of the most insensitive white woman this side of Paula Deen.

Seriously. I can’t even.

Even so, it’s probably not worst race-baiting on the right I’ve read this week. But that’s only because this was the week that the Daily Caller chose to sweetly remind us that “The Obamas do not have any white dogs.”

I’ll stop here, because I feel myself strongly tempted to go Jersey on these people in a foul-mouthed tirade the likes of which the Washington Monthly has never seen.
