1. Nixon was a disgusting pig in many ways....
So it should be no shock that "racist" was on his resume as well.

9. Donald Numbskull just laughing and not repudiating Nixon's remarks.


That's why I call their party the Republiklan party.

The party of Lincoln turned into the party of George Lincoln Rockwell. I do not mean Norman Rockwell either.

2. That was brought out when Bush first appointed Rumsfeld.
He got a pass on it.

3. I wonder how Ron Christie feels about that?
Or Lynn Swann?

Or Ken Blackwell?

J.C. Watts?

Clarence Thomas?

Alan Keyes?

Or how about Condi Rice?

7. Nixon was quoting your typical white southerner of the time when he used the N-word.

The more offensive bit was his saying black Africans had just come down out of the trees.

I'm not shocked at all. I'm old enough to have heard plenty outright racist talk and I wouldn't put it past a president saying such things either. The boys in the current administration may not be any better.

11. The idea that this is surprising or abnormal is what allows it to continue.

12. It SHOULD be surprising.
It continues because people hide it and pretend it's not happening.
