You down wit GOP?

Good grief.

Some clever nicknames in the comments, e.g.:

Ol' Dirty Golfing Partner
LL Cool Bean
Mos Tone Def
Lil' Hayek

Thus is cynicism an impediment to post-racialism.

One of the people listed as a "great Republican" is baseball legend Jackie Robinson, who actually identified himself as an independent. In fact, Robinson spoke out about the "hatred" he saw at the 1964 GOP convention, where Barry Goldwater won the nomination. He called it "one of the most unforgettable and frightening experiences of my life."
Oh dear.
