    just keep on believing what you want to believe but that will never make it true.


    Oh -- and to answer the question -- NO, "challenging Susan Rice does not make 0ne a racist?" However - many of those who are challenging her capabilities as a diplomat are racists

    I already responded to the Condy Rice thing and as far as Palin goes she was a bad choice and McCain paid for it dearly.

    It no more makes you a racist than it made those U.S. Senators who challenged Clarence Thomas racist. You know, the ones that forced him to whine about 'legal lynching'.

    And this goes both ways. Liberals criticized Rice on more expanded grounds, to be sure, but the scenario is somewhat similar. This is more motivated by partisan politics than anything (and to answer the OP, this essentially excludes race from discussion), and of course this makes few on either the Democrats or the Republicans look good.

    The bit about Palin is just something stupid to say. I don't know why you included that at all.

    The charges against Thomas were outrageous and proven so...The ones against Rice are not.....she made statements on 5 TV network that were proven as lies......
