Republican Racism Review: Birthers, Births, and a New Low

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:
  • CNN's Erik Erickson then uses the Breitbart piece to argue that Obama is really a "composite Kenyan" which if you're wondering and don't want to click the link basically means Erickson won't commit to being a Birther, but still wants to otherize Obama for his racial background.  Best of both worlds!
  • Mike Huckabee decided to tug at a different Birther string claiming that Obama entered college as a "foreign student."
  • Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett has apologized for embarrassing the state of Arizona with his quixotic quest to force Hawaii to provide him with secret evidence that Obama was really born there since the birth certificate is clearly fake.  I just wish I could have heard the call from (I'm assuming) the Romney campaign that forced him to do this.  Or if your a Birther, the Obama thugs that threatened his family.
