Chait: Obama vs. Political Correctness

   Chait's on target here as usual.
   He probably spends a little too much space talking about similar problems on the right, but that may just be him flashing his liberal credentials so that liberals don't automatically tune him out. In my experience, if you're going to criticize liberalism to liberals you have to expend a lot of effort assuring them that you're one of them and not a nasty old c-o-n-s-e-r-v-a-t-i-v-e.
   Anyway, good for the POTUS. That guy's just flat-out reasonable. I figured it wouldn't be long before he sent a shot across the bow of the S.S. PC. I've wondered whether he might have his own dramatic Sister Souljah moment... But there hasn't really been a clear occasion for it. Ms. Souljah, as you might recall, suggested something that sounded like a call to kill white people. You see that stuff all the time in the Tumblrverse...but white eliminationism seems more-or-less isolated to that particular (juvenile, powerless) branch of the moonbatosphere. So there hasn't really been any need for such a thing.
   Anyway. As you can probably tell, I'm psyched--though in no way surprised--that Obama's come down on the side of the angels in this respect.
