LOL...I don't know about his backwards neck of the woods but this guy's national career is over. I guess the novelty of the ass pounding they took on Nov the 4th is over and they are ready for more.

I don't think people realize how deeply racism/bigotry is still entrenched in the conservative movement. Even today as stalwarts such as Paul Weyrich admit SC cases like Green vs Connelly (decided private schools that banned all non-whites were ineligible for tax-exempt status) unified conservatives far more than oft cited Roe v Wade people still tend to ignore reality. Nowhere is this more clear than in western conservatives - very hard to find a conservative in this part of the country who does not hold very strong prejudice against minorities.

Here's a shovel white stuffed shirt conservatives... you just keep digging. As a republican I'm not shocked, and the amount of emails with racial undertones and scare tactics I received from republican people i know really appalled me during this campaign.

I am a minority and happen to be conservative. Oh yeah I also happen to be a public educator and a female. It is sad that there are conservatives who are close minded, but I have also also met and witnessed liberals who are just as close minded and at times extremely hateful.

if a black person makes jokes about a white person it's all just in good fun and people, for the most part, just ignore it but god forebid a white person make a joke about a black person, that white person is now considered a racist. i'm not saying i agree with what this guy did but come on who really cares. people make jokes all the time.

Joke ay? Weak! I remember not too long ago there was talk of an appalling Michelle Obama "whittey" video where she's ranting in some anti-white diatribe. Leave the jokes to comedian especially if you look like this guy and suffer from intelligence deficiency, m'kay. If I am a Republican I would be celebrating that this moron isn't going to head my party out of the wildernesss.

Viva la darwinisme politique mon ami.

I'm def a liberal hater... I hate trickle-down economics, health care run by corporate accountants and lawyers in Armani suits, and the military-industrial complex ;)

Ultimately I think we're all somewhat a product of our upbringing and experiences. Had I not been raised in the 80's and early 90's by a family who constantly made us feel scared about the anti-Christs Gorbachev, Clinton and Kofi I would probably take modern conservatism more seriously... well at least up until W. He is the gamechanger of 21st century America. LBJ knew he lost the south for at least a generation w/ the Civil Rights Acts: W lost a whole generation more or less just from his presidency.

If it were Joe Schmoe, it wouldn't be newsworthy. However, it's a guy who might just become the leader of the Republican party. If an African American politician of similar prominence circulated a CD with a track entitled, "Kill whitey," it would be newsworthy and rightly so.

Anyone who believes that racism is not alive and well in this country, is a fool. If you are foolhardy enough to think that the practice of racism is limited to ANY specific race and NOT practiced by all colors......to some degree, you are part of the disease..........NOT the cure.

Oh come on, this is not the same as Chris Rock making fun of how white people drive. More than anything, this reconfirms what a lot of us have known for a long time - Republicans aren't funny!

And any time they try to be, it usually ends up blowing up in their faces. So I guess in that regard they are pretty funny.

Never really thought of that but man you're right. Even my conservative friends/family can laugh part of the time at Bill Maher's sense of humor. There's no equivalent on the right. And Matty called it on the right's attempts to be funny always blowing up. I'll never forget the gruesome video of Lush Bimbaugh trying to make some "joke" about Michael J. Fox where Lush is writhing all over the place in his studio chair. Conservatives from coast to coast defended him like it was somehow done in good humor! Disgusting.
