This just the beginning

Here's a button sold by a vendor at the Texas State Republican Convention. Some Repugs must have bought & worn this button, or the bumper stickers & tee shirts, but nobody bothered to make the vender stop selling it. We know the kind of shit that is going float to the surface in "unofficial" campaign merchandise.

But Barack Obama isn't running for Chief of the Button Police. He can't deal with every expression of racism & bigotry - which is free expression if it doesn't openly advocate violence. It shouldn't be ignored. Remember, Jim Webb is senator now in part because George Allen went down to rural southwest Virginia where he figured he was among "friends" & could say anything he wanted. We can watch for this garbage & expose it to the light. Use a cell phone camera if you see something nasty, take a photo of it, send it around, post in on a blog. Show faces. We can do that.
