    Now, I posted this not for partisan hackery but for this part:

    Instead of having a Democrat or liberal over-react (in my opinion), we have a Republican doing so. As distasteful as this is, I don't think it would require Davenport to step down, just maybe issue an apology, or a statement about it being irresponsible.

    Stories like this make me feel better about the massive hypocrisy in our system.
    I disagree. This fool should step down or be thrown out. There's nothing hypocritic about demanding our politicians operate from an ethical and moral base. Shame on her. Good for Scott Baugh.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from the consequences of your speech. Go to your boss, shout in his face that he's an asshole, and see how that freedom of speech goes for you.

    Legally speaking, she can stay in office because she's broken no law, but that doesn't mean people aren't allowed to be upset and ask for her resignation.

    If she can't conduct herself anymore professionally than that, then she doesn't need to be holding an elected office. I think she needs to voluntarily resign her post.

This is a good reason to stand with the Republicans in California. They didn't defend the scumbag. They are going after her. Kudos to the California Republicans.
    This... about a dozen times over.

    The First Amendment only prevent Congress from passing laws that abridge free speech. It does not protect people from consequences resulting from their exercise of it. You have every right to be a Nazi, but when nobody wants to be your friend anymore, that's your own problem.

    The GOP will pressure her to resign because the one thing they don't want is to have to sink money into trying to defend her when election time comes. She should take responsibility for her own choices and her own actions and resign. She can't be forced to, but there is some personal responsibility that comes into play -- her responsibility for what she said.

    Such antics is racist, plain and simple. But it's not just this GOP congresswoman who has done this throughout the Obama presidency. Recently, Rush made a similar depiction while attempting to mask it in Darwinism - the same tactics torn from the pages of gutter politics used at the height of Conservatism. Such depictions have been going on against Blacks since long before WWI and were a common depiction of black politicians throughout the history of our nation's politics since the in the 1930's and 40's. So, this is nothing new.

    Nonetheless, it is still remarkable (and just as offensive) seeing this type of gutter politics take place in a post-Civil Rights era. This is why I've said racism, particularly between Blacks and Whites, should end if for no other reason than because short of landing on the moom we, as African Americans, have achieved everything our White counterparts have achieved. We really do need to get beyond such stupid and disrespectful acts.
