Bigotry: it's all about Pride!

Just when I was starting to get something approaching warm and fuzzy upon reading not just one but two sensible editorials in today's rag that weren't utterly batshit-insane in their "defense of Christmas"--including one from a most subdued Cal Thomas--along comes an incredibly vile reprint from Rome, GA's News-Tribune.

Georgia Republican congressional delegation is to be commended for seeking to scrap Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which must be renewed by 2007.

As the area’s congressman, Phil Gingrey, R-Marietta, correctly put it: ‘‘You don’t have much of a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. You still feel like it’s the right thing to do, so you strap on your helmet, go out there, and if you fail, you walk away with your pride.’’

Yeah, it's a thankless job, keepin' our dark-skinned folks down and in a world of shit, but someone's gotta do it! Christ on a cracker...
