Republican Racism Watch #1
The first(post-election) of what no doubt will be a long series! I don't include the Post cartoon. Let's call that a starting sputter.
And that was from a newspaper. Not like this Los Alomitas, CA mayor, Dean Grose, who sent out an e-mail to a local black businesswoman with an image depicting the White House Lawn covered in watermelons
with the caption, "No Easter Egg hunt this year."
Update: The mayor--claiming he was shocked, shocked
to learn there were any stereotypes regarding black folks and watermelon, and thus proving that, in any event, he's of unfit intelligence to be a mayor--has agreed to resign on Monday
. He will, however, remain on the city's council.
keep doing this, Republicans. You know, my favorite quote
about Jindal's hilariously bad GOP response
last night was:
If it sounds like Jindal is targeting his speech to a room full of fourth graders, that's because he is. They might be the next people to actually vote for Republicans again.
At the rate they're going that will soon be true. The beautiful thing is that, as their entire identity is now tied to all the wrong things to do, their only way out of this is to stop being Republicans. They are now defining being Republican as "doing nothing in a crisis, except ones they invent or allow."
