I have long been perplexed by how in today’s political climate, one can truly be undecided on the most heated political issues of the day, and yesterday, I had a revelation.  So often, people claim “Well, I’m an independent, so I listed to both sides …” and there in lies the problem.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with my sister, and telling her about why I launched this blog and with very little consideration, she said to me “Oh, I’m not into politics…” and we quickly moved onto another subject.

Alas, Rick “Man on Dog” Santorum has accused Vice President Biden of “playing the race card”.

First and foremost, what the hell is the race card? Besides being just plain stupid, it’s a vague, nebulous and ambiguous metaphor. Nobody knows exactly what it means, mostly because nobody cares.  All anybody really knows is that once the charge has been leveled, the chargee is supposed to summarily and apologetically retreat, ashamed at having used the term in the first place, knowing all the while he is banished from any future philosophical discourse simply for having the audacity to have been accused of the offense.  And there’s never even any follow up.  Once someone plays the race card, the conversation is over.  The race card often does more to end dialogue than a hydrogen bomb.
