    He might not have expected it to get as much mainstream media attention as it did. But Barbour's personal racism or lack of same is irrelevant--he was consciously pandering to racists. And now that it's in the mainstream media, even more racists will see it and be favorably impressed. The people who are unfavorably impressed probably weren't gonna vote for Barbour anyway. So from Barbour's perspective, it's all good. His backtracking is enough to get the mainstream media off his ass, but to his intended audience it's just a wink and a nudge.

    "The true strength of our nation comes not from the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals." - Barack Obama
