Comments: Chicago police chief: NRA, Sarah Palin "racist"

My standard response to being called racist (usually by a student) is to say "Yeah", shrug my shoulders, and tell the person to deal with it. They are usually so flabbergasted that I've not been put on the defensive that it ends the argument.

That is some twisting-yourself-into-a-pretzel non-logic right there.

What a tool.

Because caribou hunting is clearly the same thing as shooting children. That this guy is the head of the CPD speaks volumes about how screwed up things are there.

You are exactly right, Duffy -- especially since the meat from your typical urban child would be very low quality compared to that from a caribou. :)

Did you notice whose church he was attending? Rev. Michael Pfleger, a buddy of Rev. Wright. Pfleger was also the one who was caught on tape mocking Hillary as a racist in 2008 campaign by saying "there is a black man taking my job!".

Good catch, AJ. I didn't realize that.
