Fox is probably one of the biggest contributors to keeping the liberal blogosphere talking.

CAL THOMAS: In this campaign, we are being asked to accept three things simultaneously, the first woman with a credible chance of being president, the first African-American with the chance to being president and, whoever Michelle Obama is going to be styled, the angry black woman, first lady? This is an awful lot.

THOMAS: I want to pick up on something that Jane said about the angry black woman. Look at the image of angry black women on television. Politically you have Maxine Waters of California, liberal Democrat. She’s always angry every time she gets on television. Cynthia McKinney, another angry black woman. [CWW: He forgot one of my favorite angry black woman politicians, Eleanor Holmes Norton.] … So you don’t really have a profile of non-angry black women.

The first angry black woman that came to mind for me has blogged on this as well.

I like an “angry” black woman as a political force. I like that they will question the status quo, push the envelope, and see what changes they can make. I would rather see an “angry” black woman as First Lady — since she’s likely to therefore be active — than an average, boring, uninspiring woman of any color. But it’s so fucking ignorant to call her simply angry (not to mention deciding that all black women are angry)… there ya go, people, pathetic Fox commentary at its very best.
