Call Me Crazy ….

But I think this guy’s post about Armstrong Williams is flat-out racist, and it’s not like I throw that around lightly.

I found it while searching Technorati for what the blogosphere was saying about Armstrong Williams. I don’t know much about Steve Gillard. Okay I don’t know anything execpt I’ve come across the name in searches before and Technorati says it’s fairly well-known.

Anyway, I find the Williams thing to be a total trainwreck, but I don’t think it warrants lame slave jokes and the like. Then again, I don’t think anything warrants even non-lame slave jokes. Shame on this guy whoever he is.

A cynic would argue that CNN had deliberately given Trump undue coverage ... Read More
