What Racism at the Tea Parties?
This is ironic, since I just finished a recording for Bloggingheads.tv in which Conn Carroll of the Heritage Foundation insisted there was no racism evident at the tea party demonstrations — and now here we have Dale Robertson, leader of TeaParty.org, in trouble for appearing at the February 27, 2009 Houston Tea Party with a sign containing a racist slur. And it’s a misspelled racist slur, just for that extra bit of tea bag goodness.

UPDATE at 1/4/10 2:05:49 pm:
And the irony gets even tastier, because as he held the racist sign, Robertson was wearing a cap declaring himself a “Man of Faith.”
