    I realize you're not accustomed to actually analyzing liberal orthodoxy, but I had hoped for more depth from you.

    I've disappointed you again Jack, haven't I? People ask me all the time how I'm able to go on after disappointing you ... I don't know how, I just do ...

    In every Context used it's racist and yes ducks quack and fly.

    Why the obsession with Anitidae Family of waterfowl ?

    What the SCOTUS did yesterday was return power back to the state

    Libs made the ridiculous argument that we somehow ine one day warped back to 1965 Selma and States could'nt be trusted.

    But youv'e taken it a step further and have justified racist derogatory insults.
    It's a term used by a black person against another black person, I don't see that as being racist because it doesn't denigrate the whole race. But I think it's up his constituents to determine if it is.

    Yea right, go call the first Black man you see in public a. Uncle Tom". See what happens.

    And no, its not up to his constituents to determine anything.

    That's how we elect scum-bag Politicians like Jesse Jackson Jr and Anthony Wiener.

    An elected position isn't indicative of a higher moral center, in fact it's indicative of the opposite.

    Does that go for Senator David Vitter (R,LA) as well?

    I know that you'll end up rejecting my wisdom again (at your expense of course), but it's not a racist term ... but it is pejorative and meant to hurt and to hurt deeply, although Thomas would be unfazed by it ... I don't like labeling people in this way, but what the term conveys is absolutely applicable in Thomas's case ... appointing Thomas to the Court was a master stroke by Daddy Bush -- a black man that would be party to racist policies and decisions against blacks and because he was probably the least qualified judge ever to be appointed to the Court, it struck a blow against affirmative action at the same time -- but consider the irony ... he was truly appointed because he was a black conservative, but is opposed to affirmative action (ALTHOUGH he was not an affirmative action appointee because affirmative action requires that you be qualified, and he clearly was not). Hope this helps Fenton.

    Huh??? It denigrates the man because of his race! Do you think that calling a Black woman a nigger is okay because it didn't "denigrate the whole race"? It's up to his constituents rather than ordinary people to judge?

    Liberals will almost always justify racism in order to defend their fellow leftists. The only ones they will not defend are those who dare leave their camp.
