Someone Get Me a Voter Registration Card, Stat!
I’ve grappled over the decision to remain in the GOP fold forever, even though the party of Lincoln, has drifted further and further away from what I believe in. Colin Powell bought the Party a few more months, but Peter Brimelow’s comments (and very presence) at a recent Pat Buchanan conference dedicated to “Building the New [Republican] Majority,” may be the final straw. Brimelow urged the attendees of the Buchanan conference to attack affirmative action in an effort to attract the votes of ‘young whites’ and ‘yellow people.'” Comments like that push “yellow people” like me out of the GOP’s supposedly big tent.
Oh, and Buchanan’s attacks against Sotomayor were not kosher either.
Addendum: Simon pointed out this comment from the Coates’ blogpost on the Buchanan/Brimelow’s Hatecon, “This is fractal fail: no matter how far you zoom in, there’s still more fail.”
