The entire Tea Party movement was deemed racist because Congressman John Lewis alleged, albeit without proof, that somebody, presumed to a member of the Tea Party, called him a nigger.   Well so fare as I know, no member of Organize Wall Street had been accused of using the vile N-word, video: Hat tip: Right Sphere.

I’m certainly not going to hit you with all 6000 words.  I can’t even jump on everything in the speech that should be jumped on. An intensive response would take a week to formulate and still not cover ten percent of the […]

Bob Herbert, New York Times, attempts to slime John McCain, only to show his true and bigoted colors: The racial fantasy factor in this presidential campaign is out of control.
