Cheap Racism

CHEAP RACISM….Dammit, dammit, dammit.

Nathan, knock off with the “whiff of racism” you detect in Arianna Huffington because she said she’d drop out of the race if Dianne Feinstein ran, but she’s not dropping out for Cruz Bustamante:

Does Arianna want to not only be the Nader of the election, but be seen as a racist spoiler as well? Someone who supported the 1996 Welfare Reform Act, which took food stamps away from legal immigrants, cannot credibly claim a progressive reason to help defeat a latino Democrat for office.

This stuff makes us look like idiots, as bad as the Republican morons who are currently trying to push the line that Senate Democrats are anti-Catholic because they oppose William Pryor.

Just stop it.
