    It's only the truth. These teabaggers are crackers - ignorant, low-down white people whose only totem of superiority is their pale skin, and who can only stand tall if they can step on people who are darker than they are. And like all bullies, they're the first to scream and run for the teacher if ONE of their many, many victims hits back ONCE.

    Frankly, I don't like hearing white sensitive liberal d00ds fluttering their hands over impolite language because We'll Be Just Like Them, Oh Dearie Me. (These are usually the same white-straight-males who patted themselves on the back for being Better Than That the day the rest of us celebrated the deaths of the crackers Jerry Falwell and Andrew Breitbart - it's easy to be Better Than That when you're never the target, eh, white straight men?)

    Only if "cracker" was shouted by millions of black people routinely enslaving, torturing, raping, killing, terrorizing and disenfranchizing white people for 400 years can it even begin to compare with the n-word as a perjorative.

    And if an old black man wants to call contemptible, racist white people crackers, I say Excelsior!
