Exactly fifty years after the “Freedom Summer“—during which three civil rights workers were murdered by KKK members while registering black voters inMississippithousands of African Americans escaped from the shackles of the Democrat [sic] party and helpedThad Cochran defeat Chris McDaniel.It was quite a coup for Republicans.Having exhausted the supply of angry white guys during the 2012 elections, in the ensuing years, the GOP and their501(c)(4) allies devoted a great dealof resources towards reaching out to minorities—and it seemed that their efforts were finally bearing fruit.You’d think that teabaggers—who’ve long sought to dispel the notion that they’re racist—would’ve welcomed this development. But you’d be wrongdead wrong; instead, they raged against the dying of the white. Apparently, some things never change.

  1. What I’d like to see, not only on Sunday shows but also on talk shows during the other 6 days of the week, are a few talk shows where the moderator has a console with buttons or switches allowing her or him to temporaroly disconect a guest if that person is overriding others and not allowing them to make their point.

    Actually, some of the moderators are the worst offenders…
