This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain:
Tonight is a two-fer. Extremely ironic post title, with the race card thrown in no extra charge. From John Cole at Balloon Juice, An Object Lesson on Not Being Jerks (emphasis mine):
The funny thing about all of this is that no matter how bad all their ideas are, no matter how disastrous their governance has been, no matter how many horrible things they have done to the economy and this country, what really is killing the Republican party is that deep down, they are just complete assholes. You see it in the way they treat women, you see it in the way they treat minorities, you see it in the way they treat homosexuals, you see it in the way they treat anyone who is not a white Christian, and you see it in the way they treat anyone who disagrees with them slightly about anything. They just have no respect for anyone, and it shows.
Res ipsa loquitur (“the thing itself speaks”).
