Great discussion on race on Tweety
Why don't the Dems acknowledge that Carter is correct. Race is a factor here.
Buy a spine Dems.

2. Apparently all people are RICSAS!
I heard Al Sharpton last night and even he was backing and pulling.

4. Catch this folks in a couple hours!
Very good.

The other fellow, professor Drew Watson? ... said that Democrats may bear some responsibility for the rising racist extremism when they don't point out that racism is a factor. Denying that racism is part of the zeitgeist of the radical right gives them 'permission'. The White House and other Dems should not have been so categorical in excluding racism as a piece of what motivates the crazy element of the Teabaggers.

And, this guy Drew Watson? said maybe the Democrats needed Howard Dean back as party chair because he gave them a shot of testosterone to combat the extremists. Ha!

Watch this on the replay ... it's worth it.

I actually heard the West part.
