When MSNBC says Romney's use of the term "kitchen cabinet" is racist, it's now lapped itself on the lunacy track. #getagrip—

For those of you not up to speed on your “dog whistles,” apparently the term “kitchen cabinet” is supposed to whip you up into a racist froth.
Yes, really. According to Mark Thompson, a guest on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show on MSNBC.
More from The Daily Caller:
“This might have been a small thing, but it’s important for people to understand,” Thompson said. “You cannot be culturally ignorant. He singled out one African-American who came with the 20 in his entourage as an African-American that was in his kitchen cabinet in Massachusetts, and he promised that he would remain in his kitchen cabinet if he was in the White House.”
According to Thompson, mentioning African-Americans and kitchens at the same time is a bad idea.
“To talk about being in the kitchen and not talk about an African-American actually being in your cabinet is really not a good metaphor to use with African-Americans,” he said.
They both then went on to parrot the absurd narrative that Mitt Romney wanted to be booed when speaking at the NAACP convention as part of a “Southern Strategy.”
Oh, Mr. Thompson. It’s important for you to understand that you are completely cuckoo pants. Oh, yeah, and a disgusting race-baiting hustler.
Twitter users were both flabbergasted and disgusted. Just when you think that the Left can’t get any more contemptible, and unhinged, they go and jump the shark even higher!
Yes. It is actual racism when one sees only color, in absolutely everything.
"Kitchen cabinet" is a historical reference to Andrew Jackson's friends/advisors who met in his kitchen. His real cabinet was jealous.—

History, like sanity, is hard for the Left. Never let pesky facts get in the way of some sweet, sweet race-baiting.
Some snarky conspiracy theories come to head, of course.
Cue the super scary music, reserved only for Tea party members. Or, the Swiss.
Now we can't say "kitchen cabinet"? This sounds like the work of The Food Czar…..evil genius!—
