Response to arely staircase (Reply #125)

127. You're right, Gingrich only published books.

And the language was so much more elegant!

This is the man who pioneered workfare and more recently (weeks ago, not twenty years ago) said Obama runs a food stamp nation. See, he knows to put code words on it. Also, telling the Palestinians they don't exist can't be racist, since, um, they're not American so who cares?

All the Mexico wall-builders and deport-everybodies and English-onlies on the Republican side, they're not racist! God no!

And they don't cater to racist voters. They haven't relied on coded racism since 1968 to secure a base among the "resentful white" demographic. There was no "Willie Horton" campaign in 1988 and Karl Rove never made use of racist tropes in his campaign plans. Their universal idol didn't launch his 1980 campaign in Philadelphia, MI with a statement in defense of "states rights." The Tea Party foot-soldiers of whom the Republican candidates all speak high praises never thought to make an issue of Obama's race. Heaven forfend.

Truth is, it's a lot worse than we think.

Anyway, Huntsman seems to be a nice chap in some ways.
