    Seriously, who here thinks Smiley is worth listening to?
    Just shows the democrats are already setting up the race card

    So because one person says something that means it applies to all the Democrats? Good to know that I can do the same to Rush then.

    Two Tea Party favorites for president are black, beating out other tea party candidates like Palin, Paul, Santorum, Trump, Bachmann.
    You guys are starting to look like idiots by continuing the lie of racism.

    They are banking on it. This is called get out the vote of Obama's base. Some might say a say a racial group of many diverse interests that votes one way by about 97% is racist. That is what Travis is working on, getting out his group which will vote 97% one way.

    Let the screams begin.

    And your post is an excellent illustration of the ugliness that has been here for several years and will only get worse.

    Your post is also a great illustration of the campaign on the part of the far right to remove any discussion of race or racism in America by mounting an outrageous and thoroughly discredited offense as their best defense agtainst the charge.

    In some cases, perfectly accurate.

    Rationalization and justification of ugliness in the name of ideological pursuits. That is not politics - its pure hate.
