Head? Meet desk.
I've been reading Pam's House Blend a lot lately (and you should, too), and look what she posted:
"Here's the unmentionable secret: Racism isn't that big a deal any more. No sensible person supports it. Nobody of importance preaches it. It's rapidly becoming an ugly memory."
-Tony Snow, Oct 2003 (Bush's new press secretary)
I don't really know much about the guy, so I'm not going to pass judgment on his record in general, but, wow, that was a dumb thing to say. Does he really believe that? Does he still believe that? I hope not.
Pam follows this quote with a whole list of recent racist events.
(Here are some different quotes from Snow, too).
