1. As Long As He/She Was A (D)
Now ya don't think that Faux would have gone after Hillary Clinton three times as hard as President Obama? She was already a target of theirs...and many were hoping she would be the nominee cause for all the racism that exists in the rushpublican coven, sexism and hate of the Clintons was more intense.

In many ways you question was answered by the 90's. We has a White Democratic President from the South and the attacks on him were relentless and merciless...and who was at the forefront of those attacks? Murdoch and his new faux noise channel.

The GOOP hate arsenal is deep...almost any Democrat would be "insufficient" or "inferior" due to their race or gender or religion or some other believed or contrived "character" flaw.

2. Sure - this goes back a long way in American politics, but the GOP
has done character assasination and lies for most of the last 40 years - and not much else. They have started illegal wars and bankrupted the nation, and now offer nothing but lies and threats.

They are trash.

4. If s/he was as popular, both houses D, and s/he was working toward systematic change

oh yeah.

Any racism that exists just makes it easier for some people to complain/protest/make asses of themselves.

5. Well, I think the GOP would have gone after Hillary as bad, but the RACIST quotient is scarier here
than the misogynist quotient.

Racists want the target of their ire lynched. -- almost no exceptions.

Misogynists want the target of their ire depowered -- although I know there are exceptions.

8. If they were wearing sheets and hoods you guys would still be
saying the same thing. We got a long ways to go, and not just with the right wing.
