    minority votes is to ask questions or make statements that are loaded or otherwise condescending.

    To whit, Mitt Romney to the NAACP audience:

    I believe that if you understood who I truly am in my heart, and if it were possible to fully communicate what I believe is in the real, enduring best interest of African American families, you would vote for me for president.
    Ann Romney on Latinos:
    You’d better really look at your future and figure out who’s going to be the guy that’s going to make it better for you and your children, and there is only one answer.

    ...

    It really is a message that would resonate well if they could just get past some of their biases that have been there from the Democratic machines that have made us look like we don’t care about this community.

    The desperate, urgent tone with which they speak sits cheek by jowl with their underlying patronizing.

    And the one I won't forget is the Texas GOP's outlandish platform, wherein they denounced the teaching of critical thinking skills in school, and also to repeal the Voting Rights Act of 1965. To say they have the interests of non-whites in their hearts is specious, as though inviting them to their side via Stockholm syndrome.

    Fuck every one of them. Kick them to the curb, leaving them with the shell of their atrophied intellect. Here's hoping that the last vestiges of "sane" Republican voters connect the dots, and break away from this nasty, extremist, illegitimate political "party" at last.
