    'Racial slurs' aimed at wife draw McConnell's ire

    Well looks like we scream racism about Republicans or conservatives in general are showing their true colors...

    WINCHESTER, Kentucky (AP) — Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell lambasted a liberal group on Saturday for criticizing the Asian heritage of his wife, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, calling its Twitter messages "racial slurs" and "the ultimate outrage." - http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/p...Top+Stories%29

    Racism's only bad when it's directed at black people.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    A bit late to the day... plenty on the "left" have been after this group from the start. I read about this early this week on Thinkprogress I think.

    Just like plenty on the "right" screamed about it when it happened to Obama. So no, what is good for the goose is at play here. All liberals are racists and the Democratic party is racist as well. It must attract this sort of person correct?

    Progressives/Liberals/whatevertheycallthemselves are masters of getting away with this stuff. They are largely immune to irony.

    And by conservatives.
