In Your Face, POW!
Naturally, turds like Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchanan said that Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama was only because they're both black.
Never mind that Obama and Powell are about the whitest black men in the country; Limbaugh and Buchanan don't even try to disguise their racism anymore.
Their base now, like Sarah Palin's, are white, middle aged-to-elderly disgruntled folks who'd rather back a sickly old fart and his dimwitted, sad joke of a sidekick than vote for the good of the nation.
Bush nearly ruined Powell's illustrious career and public image by forcing him to peddle bullshit to the UN General Assembly. I think Powell was partly trying to rehabilitate his credibility and bona fides by endorsing the better candidate.
Racists are being forced out in the open.
It's our duty to call them on it every time we hear them say something hateful about other races.
