Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

George W. Bush Doesn't Like Black People

Chuck Todd and others made the following observation:
Few issues fire up a good chunk of conservatives more than personal attacks against President Obama. At the same time, these attacks also turn off swing voters and minorities that the Republican Party is trying to court.

Uh....No.  The GOP is not trying to court minorities.  They are trying to court swing voters, by trying not to be so fucking racist all the time.

But the GOP is doing NOTHING to woo African American or Hispanic voters.  They just want to give an eye-gloss of looking like they care.
