Stealin' Elections/Racist and Very Rich Republicans

Election Theft Emergency
For GOP voters, the 2004 presidential election was little short of miraculous: Behind in the Electoral College even on the afternoon of the vote, the Bush-Cheney ticket staged a stunning comeback. Usually reliable exit polls turned out to be wrong by an unprecedented 5 percent in swing states. Conservatives argued, and the media agreed, that "moral values" had made the difference.

In his latest book, Fooled Again: How The Right Stole The 2004 Election, And Why They'll Steal The Next One Too (Unless We Stop Them), Mark Crispin Miller argues that it wasn't moral values which swung the election -- it was theft.
Bush Backers = Racist... D'uh!
"That study found that supporters of President Bush and other conservatives had stronger self-admitted and implicit biases against blacks than liberals did."
Who said this was the "Oil Administration"?
Exxon Mobil Corp., the world's biggest oil company, said fourth-quarter profit rose 27 percent on surging energy prices to a record $10.7 billion, capping the most profitable year for any company in U.S. history.

It's hard to imagine why any ethical person would need to look further than the Republican Party's blatant alignment with racists to see that "family values" is nothing more than a marketing slogan.

What kind of values does it take build a nationwide political stratergy based on appeals to the worst racist tendencies?

And what to make of black Republican politicians? Are they self-haters or just fools?

I see that J.C. Watts will be a featured pundit on CNN's SOTU coverage tonight. Does he have no shame? The guy has no problem going on TV to continue propping up his racist party -- even after he was humiliated into giving up his House seat by the GOP leadership. Next up, Lynn Swann. You'll find out soon, Lynn -- white Republicans almost always "forget" to vote for black candidates. The modern Republican party -- nice Christian-folk with white hoods.

The Repugs fake indignation of the C. King funeral shows their real colors on race issues. They're all pissed that the negros (Lowry) and negro lovers (Carter) took the occasion to smack down bush. Just what Correta and Dr. King would have wanted.
