    Probably at least a couple of the 6 votes for were on the liberal side. We have our insufferable idiots, too.

    Still holds outside of here. Probably a very small number of insufferable party-tards.

    In a statement, the Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the "worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen,"

    Well, good for them. I really don't care what they say. It was disrespectful, but not racist. The statement doesn't really change anything about the thread. Just very bad baiting.

    The people at a level in the party to write releases are insufferable party-tards. And it's an election year, so all the hype gets pushed way overboard because if you're not shouting louder than the other guy nobody hears you (in the current climate anyway).

    If the state's Democratic Party declared the float "racist" then the OP wasn't baiting any more than other polls on here would be considered baiting, especially when an organized group of one political party says something is (insert word here).

    It's extremely disrespectful and tasteless, but I wouldn't call it racist. Shouldn't have been in the parade, honestly. But I don't expect these people to be beyond this sort of nonsense, it's their calling card.

    Or he could have pointed out that the Nebraska Democratic Party called it "racist" - which they did.
