The Worst Smear Job Ever, or Democrat Racial Politics in Over-Reach Mode
You choose which title you like better. Check out this quote from the NY Times in an attempt to smear Frist for racially insensitive comments:
On at least three occasions in his first campaign in 1994, Tennessee newspapers reported that he accused his opponent, Senator Jim Sasser, of sending local taxpayer money to Washington, home of Marion Barry. Mr. Frist dropped the line after Mr. Sasser said he was using it to inflame racial resentment.
Also in that campaign, Representative Harold E. Ford Jr., Democrat from Memphis, demanded that Mr. Frist apologize to African-Americans for remarks that he and a supporter made. Mr. Frist, going to a largely black march against crime, had asked a worker to obtain imprinted pencils to distribute, requesting unsharpened pencils.
“I don’t want to get stuck,” he told the aide.
A supporter also said the bus was getting “deeper into the jungle” as it approached a black neighborhood.
So it is now racist to not want to send more money into an administrative sinkhole run by a crooked crackhead?
It is racist to not want to get stuck with pencils when handing them out?
It is racist when a supporter says something offensive?
Keep it coming guys. The moderates are going to give you race-baiters a nice swift kick in the seat of the pants if you keep this nonsense up. That this is a front page ‘profile’ by the NY Times is utterly laughable.
