    Racist Email Flap Blows Up Virgina Beach GOP

    Virginia Beach Republican Party chair Dave Bartholomew resigned over racist email

    As the progressive Blue Virgina blog reported Monday -- and I independently confirmed from one of the recipients Tuesday -- Virginia Beach Republican Party chair Dave Bartholomew forwarded a racist email comparing African Americans to dogs. The email, subject line "my, dog," consists of a racist parable about African Americans and welfare. In the first 24 hours since the email came to light, Democrats condemned Bartholomew and he resigned his position with the Republican Party.

    Yawn, do you liberals have anything better to insult republicans with? The race card is played out and is a bit bland today.
    Failure is made possible by liberty.

    Wonder if this is just another Macaca moment the liberal media jumps on or if this email was faked and pinned on this guy.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yeah, the GOP Southern White Boy brand of humor is played out -- that's why the guy resigned and everyone is running away from him.

    One party recently apologized for using a racist strategy for 40 years. But, now it's back to what worked in the past. Appeals to white fears of 'others' is a proven successful strategy.

    Conservatives tend to want cultural homogeny so anything that points out something different will likely be a successful strategy. That's not the same thing as racism though.

    Why would he resign if it was faked?
