Scraping The Bottom of The Barrel

Digby tells us that Tucker Carlson, perhaps in despair over his miserable ratings, invited the C.U.N.T. guy on to his show. If you care for such things you can watch the video of him at Digby's.

In other news about scraping the bottom of the barrel, the conservative site posted a diary with the mysterious title "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Constituency?". It's a diatribe aimed against Obama's candidacy and much more openly racist than I would have thought palatable even on that site. The author appears to think that women are a minority, too:

How exciting it must be for the Democrats these days; two minority candidates running for President of the United States of America. What must be especially pleasing to women and blacks in this country is the fact that neither of these presumed "Poster Children For Minorities Rising Above Their Stigma" candidates actually CARES to really fight for the causes of these minority demographics from whence they have arisen, satisfied in their presumption that their "peeps" will vote for them, "just because."

So it goes.

I promise not to etch every sexist and racist inanity said during the election season into the stone that is this blog, but I fear that a few gentle mentions will be unavoidable.
