      A person I worked for some years back enjoyed arguing politics and we'd frequently have discussions about various issues and candidates. He supported Reagan in 1980 and 1984, supported Bush in 1988 and 1992, and supported Dole in 1996. He even had good things to say about Dan Quayle.

      Did I mention he was a registered Democrat?

      Party registration is not the end of the story. There's no evidence that Donald Sterling was an active supporter of Democratic Party candidates or policies. There's also no evidence that Donald Sterling was an active supporter of Republican Party candidates or policies.

      What we do know is that there's a tape on which Donald Sterling says many blatantly racist things, and that he has a history of racist attitudes and policies. That's what's important to keep in mind. There may be more to the story yet to come -- but that's the heart of the story.
