    Forget the party labels and just look at whether a politician was progressive or a racist slime.

    My wingnut brother e-mailed me from his home on Pluto last week with a National Review article by some African-American hack. It tried to shock people who are utterly ignorant of history by pointing out that -- are you sitting down? -- Abe Lincoln and the Repubs were the party of civil rights in 1860.

    Then he made the leap -- perfectly logical if you're a wingnut -- to say that therefore black people should support today's sick 'n sorry crew of Republicans. He neglected to point out that in wingnut math 2 + 2 = 5.

    "A working class person who votes Republican is like a chicken who votes for Colonel Sanders."
