MSNBC appearances must be as addictive as meth

Ragging on Kathleen Parker just keeps getting easier. Apparently there is some super-duper-secret cabal of white Republicans out there who will say they're voting Republican, but really vote for The One:

But equally significant this time may become known as the Reverse-Bradley Effect: whites who would never admit to voting for a black man, but do. And, expanding the definition somewhat, Republicans and conservatives who would never admit to voting for a Democrat, especially one so liberal. Whether these dynamics are in balance won’t be known for a while — or perhaps ever. That’s because the crux of the reverse syndrome is a code of omerta.
I admit that there must be a lot of white Republicans wanting to vote for a black man for President. Hell, I'm one of them. I just don't want one that will be such a horrible President that people will think twice about voting another black man or woman into that same position. And, since we're speaking of the Bradley Effect, consider two things: if you were African-American and planning on voting Republican, would you tell a pollster that? Secondly, as Dennis Miller stated yesterday, after seeing how the media reacted to Joe the Plumber, why would anyone want to do anything that might ivite the same scrutiny? How does one know that a pollster is on the level?

Next imitates another conservative Republican icon, Colin Powell:
“Palling around with terrorists,” as Sarah Palin said of Obama, gets to an underlying xenophobic, anti-Muslim sentiment. Using surrogates who strategically use Obama’s middle name, Hussein, feeds the same dark heart.
Naturally, we can expect as much coverage of Palin hate at Obama rallies from Parker as as we can from the MSM at this point.

Last, but not least, there's this (emphasis mine):
Sitting quietly at their desks are an unknown number of discreet conservatives who surprise themselves as they mull their options. Appalled by McCain’s erratic behavior, both in dealing with the financial crisis and his selection of an unsuitable running mate, they will quietly (and with considerable trepidation) vote for Obama.
Eratic behavior during the financial crisis?  Hmmm.....where have I heard that before?  Well, I suppose in the fevered mind of Ms. Kathleen Parker, putting a campaign on hold to deal with a financial crisis is a bit erratic.  Others would call it putting country ahead of one's presidential campaign, something I'd never expect out of Sen. Obama.

Ann Coulter got fired as a columnist from National Review after her "invade their countries, kill their leaders" post-9/11 column.  Why is Ms. Parker still around, even in syndication?
