Is there a pool on how long before the race card gets played here?

Drudge is linking to a report on the Sunday morning talk shows where former Obama Cabinet nominee Judd Gregg said on CNN that “we’re basically on the path to a banana-republic-type of financial situation in this country.” I expect we’ll see a flood of faux outraged comments today about how that’s a codeword that acts as a racial slur toward Obama.

Some other good comments from Gregg in the article. He takes the Democrats to task for hiding an extra $250B in health care cost increases in a separate bill from health care. He also has a zinger for Arlen Specter and shoots down the “party of no” lie. Lastly he blasts both Senate health care bills.
