    Stop. You're interfering with the narrative by introducing all of these stubborn facts.

    You think the guy that links multiple anti-Obama stories from Breitbart every day is a leftist now? I think you should be able to figure out the irony of your post pretty easily. At least I hope so.

    I don't particularly care about how the OP votes. It's my view of the Leftists.

    So it doesn't matter whether your comment is at all relevant to the thread, you just felt the need to criticize leftists after a Conservative made a ridiculous post. Awesome.

    This Jim Allen guy did not make a career enhancing move.

    There's a lesson in here somewhere. Maybe don't send emails when you're drunk.

    IN addition to sobriety, some other basic ground rules about texting & e-mails:

    a) that racist joke probably isnt all that funny, certainly not funny enough to forward

    b) no one really wants to see a picture of your genitals, even your wife/spouse/gf/hot coworker

    Being offended is a profession in today's America. Don't see much to get excited about here. Everyone & everything is racist, so what?

    No, I think people should grow up. There is no law that says that jerks aren't allowed to say bad things about you. People are so weak today. They want mommy & daddy to protect them from harsh words. The US has become a nation of wimps.

    So this guy gets diarrhea of the mouth, but it's everyone else who needs to grow up? That's an interesting take.

    You do know this guy got paid to professionally represent the Republican party, right?

    You think a racist insulting rant against one of his party's own candidates is a grown up thing to do? A competent thing to do?

    You think some law, or mommy & daddy should protect him from his massive incompetence?

    Nation of wimps, indeed.

    No leftist here! I thought that this guy made a stupid statment about a fellow Republican and he needs to be called out for it that is all.

    You are a smart guy, so I ask: Why is this joke racist?

    I'm not saying it wasn't inappropriate and demeaning, but racist seems harsh - albeit politically convenient - in this case.

    I find it troubling that a charge as serious "racist" is just thrown about about so casually in an attempt to sully the reputation of political enemies. As I've said before, this administration and its allies seem to use race the same way the former administration questioned the patriotism/manhood of any of its detractors. I personally find both disingenuous and harmful to the political landscape as a whole.

    Well, my post was intended just as a general good idea, not necessarily about the rant in question. But if someone thinks calling someone a minority quota hire and referencing pimps is a good idea in an e-mail where the subject is a black person, then maybe they can't be helped. It's hard not to see that as racist, but even if it wasnt, the guy is a huge d#ck and deserves whatever s$it comes his way.
