Don't bother with it Meade, it's too complicated for them.

I was being sarcastic and turning his argument around on him, bdunce. I shouldn't have to explain that.

So... pointing out racism is racebaiting? Or is it only racebaiting when it's pointing out racism against a duly elected President of the United States?

Meade and bdog are actually protesting against posting of a photo of a racist. Without bothering to comment on the racism of the Tshirt and the person wearing it.

That's a new low for both of them.

???? I've been much lower than this....

Althouse has a good analysis of it

For those of you that have the guts to read it, what do you think of her position on the "Obamaphone" video? Was that race baiting?

The message on the t-shirt is clearly racist. I don't know who the person wearing is. Do you? Does anyone?

Oh, so you know that person, david cohen? Or you've read an interview with him? Do you have a link to more information about him?

Oh, okay I get it now. Somebody had a fake racist t-shirt special-made and then posed in it pretending to be a racist in order to garner support for Obama.

Good catch, Meade.

I get your sarcasm but why is that conclusion any less plausible than the one you jumped to?

He was at a Romney rally in Ohio. So yes, it is fair to conclude that he is a Romney supporter. As is this guy:

http://www.ktvu.com/news/news/political ... ist/nSX3C/

He set up an chair, empty except for two watermelons, and hung a noose on the chair. A sign, made to look like a teleprompter, says "Go back to Kenya".

HuffPo describes it as a "remote road in Santa Clara County". It's about a mile from where I grew up, and hardly remote.

Good lord. Have some self-respect. How difficult is it to say "I want Obama out, but this guy is a fucking racist piece of trash?"
