Janeane Garafalo calls tea partiers "racist"

I probably should have just ignored this, but I'm bored. A couple thoughts:
1. Does she think that Alan Keyes is a racist? We were protesting the President's policies, not his pigmentation.
2. With any large protest, you can find a few whack jobs advocating an issue completely unrelated to the issue that is being protested.
3. LPAC has been conducting tax protests since 2005. I would imagine that had McCain won, more Democrats would be protesting corporate bailouts.

Alan Keyes is currently suing the State of California, claiming that Obama was born in Kenya, thus making him ineligible for office.

Who's the whack job?

Alan Keyes is a whack job, but I still maintain that he isn't racist.

I take Obama at his word that he was born in Hawaii. If someone claims that he was born outside the US, the burden of proof should be on the accuser to prove it.

What is really kind of funny here is that he says that Barry Goldwater was conservative and the conservatives havent been around since 1980

Back to the subject, Janeane Garafalo is an unusually mean, nasty, unhappy, and all around unattractive bitch with a bad habit of opening her mouth for no apparent reason.

She is pond scum.

She is right that there was a racist element in those demonstrations. I like the libertarian ideas, but every time I see a crowd of "libertarians" I don's see one black, mexican or asian. It's mostly angry white people.

The Libertarian Party does not discriminate on the basis of race. If you like our ideas, you are welcome to join.

I prefer to think of myself as a passive-aggressive white person.
