There seems to be a little bit of the outrage over Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingram calling Democrats “racist” over rumblings of them looking to replace Alvin Greene as a Senate candidate in South Carolina. Three things:
1. Get a sense of irony and sarcasm. They aren’t seriously calling Democrats “racist.” They’re pointing out that if Alvin Greene was a Republican, everyone from the NY Times to NBC News would seriously be calling them racist.
2. Speaking of South Carolina, meet Tim Scott, a REPUBLICAN running for Congress.
3. If people are looking to be outraged over irresponsible accusations of racism, they can start here.
