Quote of the Day

Tommy Christopher on the Trayvon Martin backlash:

While The Daily Caller, the Bigs, and Fox News filthify the waters, decent conservatives are not keeping up their end, and the result is a distorted picture of a right vs. left divide that isn’t actually there. This is about a few racism-denying dead-enders who hate President Obama more than they hate the gunning down of black teenagers. For the first few days, these folks were barely interested in the case, aside from some nipple-hardening at the involvement of Rev. Al Sharpton and the New Black Panthers… So far, the only “division” in the Trayvon Martin story is between a handful of conservatives who want to beat their bogeymen (President Obama, Al Sharpton, the New Black Panthers, and “thuggin’” black youths) over the head with this, and everyone else. Decent conservatives should rise up and tell these people to shut the hell up.

Alex Pareene is worth reading on this as well.
