Remember, no racism in America anymore
For those of you who enjoy the zesty anti-Mexican aroma of congressional racist Tom Tancredo but were hoping for a slightly darker flavor, now enjoy the new Tom Tancredo Black:
Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today said that "the existence of the Congressional Black Caucus and other race-based groups of lawmakers amount to segregation and should be abolished." He recently received attention for calling Miami "as bad as any ghetto in any Third World country."
And to answer in advance the oncoming Standard Unfunny Conservative Response™, yes, kids. There was, in fact, a Congressional White Caucus. It was in place until about 1870. They called it "Congress."
Oh, by the way: post-Reconstruction, there have been exactly three black Republicans in the United States Congress. Four if you count a non-voting member from the Virgin Islands. As I'm sure countless conservatives will chime in to note, this clearly doesn't mean anything at all.

Time.com honestly wants to have a political blog staffed entirely by people who do not know a single damned thing about politics.

"Return of the brave College Republicans"
I brought this up earlier last week, but I figured it merited a strip just as much as their mindless stunts from last year did. For some reason, something like this is more contemptible than the normal hypocritical blather of right-wing pundits and the like. The College Republicans actually believe that they are showing the utmost of their "support" for U.S. troops by visiting the wounded at Walter Reed. The thought of enlisting isn't even an issue of avoidance... it's not even something that crosses their mind.
