    as you pointed out, it IS the gutter, and then you want to mitigate it?

    It's ugly, mean, and dirty, a new low set by DEMOCRATS.

    own it
    How is it a new low by Democrats?
    I do not have to own anything - the person who made the comparision does and has.
    People complain that the WH called- do they not have better things to do.
    Why should she have to ignore it?

Hopefully, a younger generation of Americans will be able to get beyond it, but if voices like the ones here have their way, I doubt it.
    John, we are dealing with a massive cultural divide here.

    In this country keeping comparative sports statistics based on race would be a crime, there would be protests to the heavens, public sector unions would go on strike. Have you noticed we don't use either 'black' or 'white'? We say "European" and "African-Canadian".

    We are, I am told by visitors and new Canadians' the least racist country in the world. Just yesterday in a conversation with a long time friend who happens to be of Asian descent and I asked him "what differences do we have?" He thought for a moment and said "other than I'm smarter and better looking, nothing." It did not occur to him there was a racial difference.

    So, I have had this discussion, on line and in person with my many friends across the line and found that the degree of difference is not only too wide in many cases, but widening.

    My next effort will be to convince myself that there's nothing racist about singing a song about hanging a black man with my frat buddies.

    You defend it.

    The race card is meaningless.

    The fact remains that the Obama democrats are the lowest, dirtiest political hacks I have seen in a democracy.

    Have a nice day. We're done here

    Ya'll do know that Rush Limbaugh used to work for ESPN? Yeah, he used to work the live broadcast for the NFL games. Maybe Rush can hire the beaner out of sympathy for the cause.

    Keep digging that hole of denial. You excel at it.

He was likened to Joan River's Fashion Police and if you've ever seen that, you know it's bare knuckles assault in the crudest of terms - but funny because it's so outlandish.

    And what do you think about the First Lady's office being so thin skinned and petty as to call the network to have him fired? Isn't that wrong as well?
    Do we know they did that? I honestly haven't been following this very closely.

    But it's wrong to say that if they really look like a dog

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.
