That's a Big Tent

(TW for racism)

Dog whistle? Nah, why go for subtle?
Appearing on the Caplis and Silverman radio show last Friday, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) said, “Now I don’t even want to have to be associated with [Obama], it’s like touching a tar baby and you’re stuck, you’re part of the problem now. You can’t get away.”
Learned nothing from Romney, Davis, and McCain, I see.

I can't wait to hear the "I was unfamiliar with the racist history of this term" non-apology "apology." Which is completely believable.

It's gonna be an interesting election season. Post-racial society, folks!
