This, as Allahpundit puts it, is a video knee to the groin.
[box]I’m trying to think: Is there any other actor in Hollywood whose scorn would sting more than this guy’s? Being demagogued by a halfwit celebrity is normally a badge of honor — just ask the boss emeritus — but … I really like Morgan Freeman, notwithstanding his alleged freaky-deakiness. I don’t know what’s more disappointing, his paint-by-numbers racial reductionism or the fact that his argument about special conservative animus towards Obama vis-a-vis Bill Clinton is so stupid that even Piers Morgan feels obliged to rebut it.

Really? We hear this sort of crap -and worse- from Malik Shabazz, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and even Rep. Cleaver, the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. We get it from neighbors and friends.. and family. But Morgan Freeman? I thought he was better than that, more thoughtful, more logical.
And now he’s just ruined every role he ever played to exquisite perfection… for me, at least. Guess I shouldn’t have been surprised, but this felt personal.
