    The GOP lost me because of Lee Atwater and the vile 1988 campaign to demonize an entire group of people. We work hard, don't expect handouts and just want an equal chance, even though most times we don't.

    It repulses me that this strategy was successful for so long. I knew the population shift would render dog whistle phrasing obsolete. But damn why couldn't they?

    Thankfully, more people are awakening to this crap, and are rejecting it. If Bobby Jindal, Sean Hannity and these tea party people believe that black and brown people will forget, they are in for a very rude awakening.

    I hope this audio clip goes far and wide. Let 'em think about the damage they did to so many decent, hardworking people who look like me.
