I wasn’t going to write about this because it seemed like the biggest crock of all time but the point Melissa Clouthier makes in her Nightwatch email (sign up on her blog) below is true. We can’t stand idly by while these ridiculous stories are spread about our candidates. I won’t.
The Washington Post front-paged one of the most despicably dishonest stories in their paper’s history and that’s saying something. I won’t link to it. Here’s the thumbnail: They attempt to paint Rick Perry as a racist with no proof whatsoever. The story? A property, not owned by the Perry family, but leased by them, had a rock on the property that said, “Niggerhead” (abominable). Rick Perry’s father saw it, painted over it, and that was the end of it. Rick Perry didn’t even SEE the rock. No matter. He’s racist. See how this works?
Other conservatives and Republicans who stand by idly (or worse, pile on) because the attack on their competitor helps them…well, for shame. The eventual nominee will be subject to this evil. Denounce it. LOUDLY.
Somehow Barack Obama going to a racist church for years is not nearly as bad.
