    And after all that, that race-baiting panderer still won't win, ironically because Republicans have decided that their only way to remove Obama from office is with a white person they really don't like.

      I expected Mitt to win from the start, because at the end of the day, these people don't think for themselves and they do what they are told. The GOP establishment has decided that Mitt is the most likely to win, and looking at the collection of idiots on stage with him, I can see their point.  But ultimately it's only for the GOP primary voters to ratify the decision already made by Fox News and the oligarchs who fund and run the party.  The Tea Party is more astroturf than grassroots.  We hear all this BS about individualism and all these idiots pretend they have autonomy, standing up and giving the rebel yell and all that crap, but at the end of the day those GOP primary voters are just livestock to be stampeded in one direction or another.  They are told who is most likely to defeat the black man, and they are told to fear the black man, and soon enough they think Romney was their idea all along.  My contempt for the fools on stage is only exceeded by my contempt for the fools in the crowd.

        This is exactly why I was annoyed by Williams' insistence that they apologize for their racism.  They shouldn't apologize for it.  They should renounce it.  Otherwise, what the fuck do I care that a bunch of sheeple desperately cling to the myth that they're better than you or me because of their race?
