Another day, another Republican, or group of them, doing something outrageously stupid.

Tonight, on the Iowa GOP Page

Well, apparently, anyone that you like - or that likes you can't be racist.  Only people who don't like you are racists.

I'm trying to think of something nice to say about this, but it kind of goes along with a week that highlighted these moments:

* Gov. Huckabee saying women couldn't control their libidos.
* A FL Candidate saying Obama should be assassinated.
* A Legislator proclaiming women must submit to their husbands.
* Rush Limbaugh laughing at the concept of 'anyone caring about income inequality'.

It's been a heck of a week for Republicans.   Can we give them a hand?

(Please note: Iowa Republicans took the post down about 8:10, so I guess someone was by their definition racist?)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
