Where Do They Find These People?
First, it was Trent Lott waxing nostalgic about Strom Thurmond and his racist Dixiecrats, now we've got a Congresswoman from Wyoming uttering blatantly racist remarks. During the debate over gun legislation, GOP Rep. Cubin said, "One amendment today said we could not sell guns to anybody under drug treatment. So does that mean that if you go into a black community you can't sell any guns to any black person?" As if this was not offensive enough, the GOP led House refused to take down (strike) her comments in a mostly party line vote.
So, not only does Cong. Cubin think all black people are drug addicts, but her party does not find such beliefs troublesome. And the GOP wonders why blacks consistently vote Democratic. It takes more than just a few people of color on a convention stage to make a party racially inclusive. Apparently the neanderthals of the GOP can't seem to get that through their heads.
