Barack and Michelle playing the race card in People Magazine

Having learned nothing from its in-the-tank-for-Democrats Hillary Clinton cover debacle, People Magazine is helping out President and Mrs. Obama in their efforts to play the racial victimization card with an interview bemoaning racial profiling, accompanied by a photo that shows a lot of work on making them look like an appealing couple.

This is the gem of the piece:

"There's no black male my age, who's a professional, who hasn't come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car and somebody didn't hand them their car keys," said the president, adding that, yes, it had happened to him. 

None?  This is universal?  Besides, as Richard Baehr notes, handing your car keys to someone means you don’t believe he will steal the car.  He knows someone who handed the keys to his Mercedes to a white guy for parking, and never saw it again.  And as Ed Lasky comments, “[t]hey are just going to keep venting their spleens at a country that is downright mean…this race-stoking is just going to get worse.”
