Those Meddling Kids
From a Republican campaign office in Broward County, Florida. To his credit, when the county chairman of the Republican Party heard about the sign he called it "ignorant" and said he was "disgusted." He drove to the office himself to take it down. Plus, can I make two requests? If you're going to make hateful signs about a guy, can you at least spell his name right? And, while you're at it, can you please not use the same font as my beloved New York Review of Books?
In other election news, Colin Powell - a foreign policy heavyweight by anyone's measure, and, it should be noted, a Republican - endorsed Barack Obama today on Meet the Press. Powell says in this clip what I wish Obama himself had said months ago. Basically: "Obama is a Christian. But what if he was a Muslim? Would that disqualify him from being president?"
