Barbour’s White Power Play

Is Haley Barbour a racist and a Klan apologist, as some people are claiming?  (See the story here.)  I’d guess not.  I’d say he’s just more obtuse and insensitive on racial matters than your typical Republican hack.  (Haley’s a good old boy who got rich as a Washington lobbyist.  Black people barely exist anymore in his mental universe.)

I do know this though: If the Republican Party were any more right-wing, it would fall off the edge of the Earth.  For its prospective presidential nominees, being perceived by the base as a little bit racist is probably a net plus.  At least for the primaries.

It shows the teabaggers that you have some moxie!
