Mes'kins, Coloreds and A-rabs, Oh My!

I won't bother to reiterate the old fable of the Scorpion and Frog, but let it be said that it is in the Republicans' nature to fly off into the nativist, racist dark tumor that lies just below their conservative skin. I say poke it with a pointy stick and stand back. Just a couple of Mexican flags at the Republican National Convention should be enough to get them to alienate a good 15% of the electorate. The Rs don't need any encouragement to snarl at Blacks or attack Moslem Americans. As a Mormon GOP Veep looks more and more likely, a simple statement by the D's VP candidate encouraging tolerance should be enough to get the fundamentalist snake handlers chomping at the bit.
