Playing the Trump card, Kyle-Anne Shiver, thinks Donald Trump has a plan, or well two plans, from American Thinker: Now that we can pretty well assume Mr. Trump is running for president, it’s obvious that he has done a prerequisite full survey of Obamaland.  He has, as all successful builders are wont to do, gotten […]

Matthew Yglesias  is just a tad bit confused. This seems very confused. Being a “reverse racist” can’t be similar to being a “racist,” it needs to be the reverse of being a racist. Limbaugh clearly just thinks Sotomayor is a racist. She hates white people. For a Latina to hate white people isn’t “reverse” racism, […]
