    Tea Party Shoots Itself in the Foot Again

    The racism issue in the Tea Party is going to stick if these nitwits keep this up.

    This is unforgiveable.

    So ... we're comparing an anonymous vandal to a Republican Party county official?

    Just saying, the left has done this too. That took me about 5 seconds to find on google because tons of liberal friends had emailed me Bush/monkey pics during his tenure as president.

    So..... You want some of the pictures(cartoons) portraying Bush as a monkey that was published in tons of newspapers etc.. Seems the left just calls it "political humor". http://politicalhumor.about.com/libr...ushmonkey1.htm

    Gee, I would like to know the thought process that led you to get that from my post. On second thought, maybe I don't ...

    It depends if you are on the right or left... If you're on the left it's political humor.. If you are on the right then you are a racist bigot...

    Of course, I'm sure the racial connotation for those photos and Bush is exactly the same as it is for Obama ...

    It's pretty simple logic. This kind of garbage is deplorable regardless of who does it. Who the person is, is irrelevant.

    This just furthers my point. Your attempts to rationalize and justify the left doing this kinda stuff is nearly as pathetic as the people who actually come up with this garbage.

    There are racial undertones in the Obama example that aren't there with the Bush pictures that make the two a little bit different in my eyes.
