    So, is that racist... Or is it only racist when the president is black?

    I did. Here is one:

    You admitted earlier that you had never heard the word used before, now you are an expert on the racial overtones the words supposedly carry.
    You concluded from me not knowing the background word, and subsequently realizing that it does indeed carry racial overtones, that I am an expert in words in racial overtones. This is called a "non sequitur". Now, it doesn't take an expert to point at the definition of a word, nor am I an expert in words with racial overtones, so how did you reach the conclusion that I was an expert in them?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Do you even read or just assume? Is reading not a skill practiced on the right?

    Most people have said time and again that she probably didn't mean anything racial, but should have used better judgement in her choice of wording. Do you disagree that it was an unfortunate use of words?

    How about this? Herman Cain's 999 plan was potentially a tar baby.

    You can't be real. A term that is racist towards black people...and you ask if it's racist when applied to a black person? Wow, that's dumber than when Barbara Bush said yes to marrying that drunken coke head election stealing war criminal husband of hers.

    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    People who are making apologies for her maybe. I'm not. PS I'm conservative.

    I didnt make the claim that you were "an expert in words with racial overtones" so the one employing the straw man would be you.

    I wasnt addressing "most people" nor was I addressing you. I was addressing a specific poster and his specific attitude. As for Bachmans comment, I have not defended what she said. I have simply pointed out that those who attempt to tar (can I say that word without offending someone?) an entire group with what one individual has said are engaging in a smear.
