Matt Y. makes a funny.

Yglesias, on Putz's Herman Cain meltdown.
See, Perry’s not a racist. But if Perry did do anything racist, it’s because he used to be a Democrat (heh). Yet the real victims here are white people, and once upon a time Herman Cain looked like he might be a hero to the white race. Now we see, though, that he’s just another black politician being all “racist racist racist racist” to get ahead just like the rest of them. The fact that actual African-Americans, including African-Americans with deranged right-wing views on non-racial issues, find Perry’s conduct problematic is immaterial to Reynolds’ assessment of the situation. After all, since white conservatives are the primary victims of racism in contemporary America, who better than Reynolds to put Cain back in his place and tell him how it is?
