Redeye's Week in Review

Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill and Juan Williams together again. I first became aware of Juan Williams during his defense of Supreme Court Jurist Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearing. That alone makes him persona non gratis in my book. However, as a victim of censorship myself, I don't believe NPR should have fired him for expressing his opinion and I agree it was a blow to free speech.
But losing his job for saying the sight of Muslims on a plane makes him a little nervous is wrong. It makes me wonder just how much any commentator, including myself, will have to go to water down his or her comments just to avoid offending some one's sensitivities.

What's that saying...everybody has the right to freedom of speech until they actually try and use it?

Voter Fraud is a Felony, Voter Suppression with the State Seal of Approval perfectly legal. *Big snark* Well at least now we know why ACORN was attacked. Republicans know the black/Latino voter turnout is the key, therefor it must be suppressed or not counted. Only in America...
In the 2000 presidential election, 1.9 million Americans cast ballots that no one counted. "Spoiled votes" is the technical term. The pile of ballots left to rot has a distinctly dark hue: About 1 million of them -- half of the rejected ballots -- were cast by African Americans although black voters make up only 12 percent of the electorate.

Why can't there be a write in movement against Bobby not so Bright republican?
His own media ad campaign is aimed squarely in a very different set of voters than the true blue Democrats our ads were talking to. Bragging that he's voted 80% of the time with Boehner and that he won't help the Democrats win the leadership of the next Congress may work well in the rich, white suburbs of Montgomery with McCain voters-- Bright's political strategy every day of his life-- but we think the Obama voters in Barbour, Lowndes, Butler and Bullock counties needed to be part of the conversation too-- and hear just what Bright is telling his target audience.

What's that you say? republican congressional nominee Mo Brooks has a history of Dirty Tricks? I'm shocked! Shocked I tell you! NOT. You can tell a lot about a candidate by the views of their supporters. Democratic congressional nominee Steve Raby wants to go to Washington to fight for jobs, Mo Brooks wants to go to Washington to fight a girl. I report, you decide.

I guess it depends on what the definition of "race baiting" IS
Sanders is a bigot and thief. He and his partner in crime Rose Sanders have stolen Selma and Alabama blind for years. That so called voting rights museum is nothing but a pass through account for his campaign workers and family. Maybe he will have a heart attack soon and die. Nah, that would be to good for him. He must go to prison first. Time will tell, and so will his buddies already under the gun. I predict he gets indicted by years end.

I'm just saying....
