Outrageous: Racist Dem Congressman Calls Tea Party “White Crackers”
Obligatory “If this were a Republican” comment. But seriously, if a Republican used a overt racial slur, the media would fall over each other to out outrage the other guy.

He made similar incendiary comments about House Republicans, calling their activities “sabotage” while conveniently ignoring the fact that the House has passed over 200 bills with broad Democratic support that Harry Reid won’t even let the Senate consider.

The media yawns.
The race baiters couldn’t care less.
After all, they agree.
