The media, blogs and others have been mocking Sarah Palin for saying “we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies,” even though if you listen to the entire clip, seconds earlier Palin mentioned the sanctions against North Korea. She knows the difference even though the left would like to pretend otherwise.

One of those members of the talking-head media who calls Palin dumb on a fairly consistent basis is Joy Behar. If she hasn’t already, I’m certain that Joy will mention Palin’s Korea slip-up.

Today, Black Friday, marks the one-year anniversary of the super-brilliant Palin critic Behar wondering if the term “Black Friday” is based in racism:

GOLDBERG: Oh, hello and welcome to ‘The View.’ Today is Black Friday, all day long,” Goldberg said. “And I’m going to stay black all day because of it.

BEHAR: Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?

GOLDBERG: Well, I would have called it African American Friday, but that’s taking something away from it.

BEHAR: But there’s a negative connotation to it? Or does it mean something else?

GOLDBERG: No, it’s like when you make all the money – you’re in the black.

BEHAR: So it’s positive?

GOLDBERG: Yeah. It’s in the black, so it’s a huge great thing.

Speaking of the Palin thing, Sarah responded to the media making a big deal over her slip of the tongue the only way Sarah can — she gave them a halibut club between the eyes: A Thanksgiving Message to all 57 States.

If only the media would have been this hyperanalytical of every Obama & Biden gaffe.

    On first blush, it`s fascinating that the only black person on The Spew is the one who understands the reasoning behind "Black Friday" !

    If the previous 10 months were referred to as "The Red Months", would the perpetually offended left consider that too politically biased toward Republicans ?

    Biden is absolutely "gaffetastic" ! Obama has Bush and TOTUS to blame, so much so in fact, TOTUS has its own website !

    Sarah Palin makes one gaffe and corrects it right away, and the left goes wild ! And we thought the general public of North Korea was hungry ! Desperation on display for all to see !

    Something that just popped into my little brain is that in the last century when I was in grade school we had a saying that went something like this: “Things are only —– to people with —– minds.” The blanks would usually be filled in with the same word. In the case of the Bah-har the words would both be “racist”.

    Everything that goes into its mind is defined in terms of one race or another. Even that which has nothing whatsoever to do with race is compartmentalized as such in that brain.

    Things like some vegetables, the front lawn on which the FLOTUS grazes, and trees would be of the alien race of little green men. But then, the mind of the Bah-har wonders, “Why are there no little green women? That seems pretty racist.”
