    I think we need to say that out loud. I know the Obama campaign will stay away from this, but liberals/progressives cannot. We have to say Thompson's son is racist -- he's suggesting that the man who has been the leader of the free world for 3+ years is not American because he's an "other", his father was born abroad, he's brown, he spent time in Indonesia. "Send him back to Kenya" sounds lot like the "go back to Africa" crap black people have heard for centuries. It's racism, plain and simple.

      In the 50's, National Review wrote an Editorial saying that the South had a right to subjugate Black people like colonials in Kenya had the right to keep natives Africans underfoot.

      More things change,the more they remain the same.
