Anytime a conservative speaks a truth critical of the Republican Party, no matter how obvious that truth is to non-conservatives, it’s news. Why? Because it’s so damn rare.
Colin Powell’s former chief of staff, retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, reacts to Romney hitman and all around prick, John Sununu, who suggested that Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama was motivated by race.
My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people — not all of them, but most of them — who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that’s despicable.
Don’t expect Wilkerson to be invited to any RNC parties any time soon, or ever. Truth is not something Republicans handle all that well.
