Indeed It Might

Kudos to Jamie Kirchick for locating this priceless nugget from Taki Theodoracopulos:

It might seem politically incorrect to say this, but the Berlin Olympics were the best ever staged, the last time white American and European men and women competed on an equal level with blacks, despite the great feat of Jesse Owens in winning four gold medals.

This is, incidentally, a great example of the rhetorical ploys existing around the term “politically incorrect.” By conceding in advance that what you’re about to say is wrong, but then relabeling wrongness as “political incorrectness,” you’re somehow supposed to be exculpated.
