BREAKING NEWS: Racism, Ignorance Alive and Well in America
If you are depressed about the state of America, you may want to avoid this video.
A reporter interviews a bunch of folks at a Palin rally and whoa-nelly! There's just no way to prepare yourself for the kind of thinking that lots of us assumed had died out with burning crosses and pointy white hats. Through it all, a calm reporter nods and takes in all this hatred with the patience of a prison chaplain. Wait until you hear where he's from.
One thing is for sure, I surely detest Sarah Palin on so many levels but now I can add a new one: There's something about her that brings out the absolute worst in my countrymen; I am horrified and completely embarrassed by them. They are - cannot be - the future of America or we can just hang it up right now.
