    (I did say it was racist) but I am criticizing our side's seemingly knee-jerk reaction to shout "racism" first while not even considering turning the attack back on economic grounds as well. The former may be more soul-satisfying but the latter is more effective at winning the votes of the not-already-agreeing-with-us.

    sTiVo's rule: Just because YOU "wouldn't put it past 'em" doesn't prove that THEY did it.

      Can't we do both? Why can't we intially call something for what it is? This is blatantly racist. More and better responses are coming.

      I know that I've already said that the xenophobia aside, that this ad is bizarre for the fact that Stabenow has been one of the most dogged critiques of our trade policies with China and their currency issues.

      I hate that some feel that we can't call something racist, because we're known for it, even when something is blatantly racist. We aren't aren't idiots. We can walk and chew gum at the same time.
