The man whose leg was thrilled

The more these people speak, the more appropriate a No Nazis no fascists sign seems.

Chris Matthews asks Cynthia Tucker, editor of the opinion section of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, about racism and town hall protestors:

Matthews: “Put 100 of these people in a room. Strap them into gurneys. Inject them with sodium pentathol. How many of them would say I don’t like the idea of having a black president? What percentage?”

Tucker: “45 to 65 percent of these people will never be comfortable with a black President.”

Of course, it is not possible to object to the President’s policies and principles without being called a racist. At one time this would indeed have made people uncomfortable, but if Barack Obama’s presidency is doing anything to “heal racial tensions,” it would be desensitizing ordinary people to the word.

Wonkette calls this a “classic.”
I think the rules are being rewritten.
