    Is Sarah Palin using a racial slur?

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...jive-on-libya/

    Shuck and Jive?
    Oh Sarah....

    Urban Dictionary:
    To shuck and jive" originally referred to the intentionally misleading words and actions that African-Americans would employ in order to deceive racist Euro-Americans in power, both during the period of slavery and afterwards. The expression was documented as being in wide usage in the 1920s, but may have originated much earlier.

    "Shucking and jiving" was a tactic of both survival and resistance. A slave, for instance, could say eagerly, "Oh, yes, Master," and have no real intention to obey. Or an African-American man could pretend to be working hard at a task he was ordered to do, but might put up this pretense only when under observation. Both would be instances of "doin' the old shuck 'n jive."

    White House press secretary Jay Carney at the beginning of his Wednesday briefing reacts after bringing out the wrong notebook: "Sorry. I'm going to shuck and jive! Time to shuck and jive."
    Oh Carney, what a racist.

    Maybe the President wasn't joking and did give Chris Matthews a stroke. Chris dude, if you're going to call Palin a racist for this, at least call yourself one for the times you've used it.

    She probably didn't even know what she was saying. That woman has less brain cells than the embryos she values more than adults...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...
