Republican Racism Review: Morally Bankrupt, Tar Babies, and Birthers

Real button handed out at the 2008
Texas Republican State Convention
If you start keeping your eyes open for them, there are a terrifying number of news stories about Republicans being racist:
  • On Fox News, Tucker Carlson decided to talk about "an absurd fringe" organization that is "bankrupt literally and morally."  Amazingly, he was not referring to the Gingrich campaign.  Instead he was referring to the NAACP.
  • In an extra special article titled "Negroes with Guns" the totally not racist Ann Coulter argues that if only we gave children guns, Trayvon Martin would still be alive.  She then goes onto ignore the whole "Republican Southern Strategy" thing to obsess about the fact that a hundred and fifty years ago the Democrats were the ones on the wrong side of slavery.  Topical!
