Cenk tears into the super PAC plan funded by Chicago’s Joe Ricketts, which calls on Republicans to find an “extremely literate conservative African-American” who can help in attacks against President Obama.
“That disgusts me,” Cenk says. But the plan’s suggestion to use Rev. Jeremiah Wright doesn’t add up — in 2008, $7 million worth of ads already made the most of the “radical” minister’s influence on Obama. “It didn’t work, you knuckle heads. Fox News gave them all the free advertising in the world — they ran it over and over again. But the assumption with Joe Ricketts and these guys is, ‘God, if only America knew how angry his black pastor was, maybe they would hate him like we do!’ No, because America isn’t as hateful as you are. That was your miscalculation.”
