This is actual content on MSNBC. Lawrence O’Donnell doing his best Shocked Olbermann impersonation about the racial makeup of Michele Bachmann’s district, because race is the only thing that matters to progressives such as O’Donnell, apparently.
“What makes those voters so ignorant? Well, for starters, they are whiter than the average district.”
Lawrence O’Donnell is such a breath of fresh air in punditry; whereas most individuals have an inkling of what they’re speaking of when they open their mouths, O’Donnell doesn’t. He fearlessly allows whatever is floating around the fog of his mind to tumble from his mouth with a Shatner-esque delivery. You may think that his pauses are for dramatic effect, nay, it’s O’Donnell’s mind working overtime in an effort to string together a proper sentence before the words escape his lips. Sometimes he’s even successful at it.
If O’Donnell is so worried about voting districts, then perhaps he should ask why certain states are trying desperately to segregate redistrict all the black people into one district by themselves, but that would require an effort beyond that of sitting doe-eyed behind a desk and opining.
