Okay, so let’s say that National Review decided to do a racist caricature of Judge Sonia Sotomayor, but they decided to do a racist caricature that changed her race? Would that be better?
That may seem like an insane question to ask, but you haven’t met insane until you’ve met the National Review:
You see, it’s funny because…um…all those brown people look alike? Yeah, maybe that’s it.
On occasion I’ve said, sardonically, “Gee, and the GOP wonders why they have trouble attracting non-white voters.” But they don’t wonder that, really. They’ve embraced racism in a big bear hug, and they’re not going to let go of it, even as it pulls them into the electoral abyss.
