One half-assed argument plus another half-assed argument only gets you one whole ass

This is weak, even by Conservative blogging standards. John Cole over at Ballon Juice would like to make the case that Ted Kennedy’s “Neanderthal” comment was racist, but his heart isn’t really in it. He then tries to make a seperate case that it’s a class issue but, again, he can’t muster the energy to close the deal, so it’s back to race again where he publishes pictures of Miguel Estrada and Janice Rogers Brown and asks:

Alrighty Democrats- time for a test. What would your reaction be if ANY Republican called these folks ‘Neanderthals.’ Be honest, now.

Okay, since we’re being honest: where are the pictures of William Pryor, Priscilla Owen, Carolyn Kuhl, and Charles Pickering and what do they all have in common?

Be honest, now.



Yeah. Like I would tell you....
