People are always accusing us black folks (especially the field Negroes) of playing the victim card. But I have some news for you; no one plays the victim card more or better than conservatives. No one.
Tonight I am thinking about another example of conservative victim hood. This time it's my blond friend from California, Carrie Prejean, who has been making the rounds for truth freedom and the good book, lately.
Poor Carrie, it seems that she just can't buy a break. First her hopes of becoming Ms. U.S.A. ends up dashed because of an ugly question from some liberal blogger who set her up. "I felt as though Satan was trying to tempt me in asking me this question. And then God was in my head and in my heart saying, "Do not compromise this. You need to stand up for me and you need to share with all these people . . . you need to witness to them and you need to show that you're not willing to compromise that for this title of Miss USA."And I knew right here that it wasn't about winning. It was about being true to my convictions." That's how she described her experience to her brother in Christ, James Dobson. And, if you will recall, she got into some more problems with the pageant due to some nude photos. But she explained that away in typical conservative fashion by saying "the wind blew her dress open..."
And then, just when she is getting her life back together and spreading the word about freedom and love of God and country, another ugly little scandal comes out with allegations of...ahem...some rather racy self exploration on her part. (Carrie, if you think Larry King is a tough interview, you might want to get out of the spotlight.)
Field, she did 8 sex tapes and there are at least 30 nude photos of her. EIGHT? Oh my! I wonder if she told Dr. Dobson and her right wing friends that there were eight tapes?
But, Carrie is smart, when all else fails she did what any good conservative would do; she blamed the ugly left wing media. "There is this double standard that conservative women are fair game to be attacked and it's not right..."
Of course it's not Carrie, I feel you girl. Us victims have to stick together.
