    That this happened at a convention is appalling. But after 4 years of increasingly hysterical race-baiting by the Republican leadership, is it any wonder that their rank-and-file think this kind of behavior is actually acceptable?

    This is a party that has spent years demonizing anyone who is perceived as "other" - including Obama. They whip their foot soldiers into a frenzy, and then act shocked when some of them act accordingly.

    As for CNN - boo, hiss. Some other media outlet is going to have the stones to dig deeper, and they will "become the story" whether they like it or not. This is not the way to stand by an employee (contractor or not).
