  •  George Wallace was (3+ / 0-)

    a nasty-minded racist at a time when the rest of the country was still surprised by that kind of thing. But he was not stupid.

    McCrory, OTOH, seems to have an IQ and moral base at about the level of a box of rocks.

    There is no question that there is an unseen world. The problem is, how far is it from Midtown and how late is it open? -- Woody Allen

    •  I think you've got the wrong end of the stick (0+ / 0-)

      about Wallace.  He wasn't a nasty-minded racist, he was a consummate politician with--to say the least--extremely flexible principles, in a state full of nasty minded racists.  Within a very few years he was crowning the first black homecoming queen at UA.

      We are the principled ones, remember? We don't get to use the black hats' tricks even when it would benefit us. Political Compass: -6.88, -6.41
