Unbelievably whacko Whoopie

Posted by Richard on September 15, 2008

On Friday, I linked to a post by The Anchoress and alluded to some "unbelievably whacko stuff from The View." The most whacko thing to appear on that reliably whacko show was Whoopie Goldberg asking Sen. John McCain, "Do I have to be worried about becoming a slave again?"

Plenty of people have savaged Goldberg for that remark (here's a good one). But most have focused on its outrageous misrepresentation of McCain, the Republican Party, America, and … well … reality.

But what struck me was that little word "again." I have a simple question, Ms. millionaire Hollywood celebrity with a mansion, a private jet, an Oscar, several Emmies, numerous other awards, and millions of fans — when exactly were you a slave before? When you were young, was it hard picking cotton on the plantation in Manhattan?
