The "Real America" Is ... Ugly?

Rep. Robin Hayes, Republican representing the NC 8th Congressional district, has jumped on the "good America/bad America" dichotomy. Warming up the crowd in Concord, N.C., at a McCain rally on the morning of Oct. 18, Hayes said that "liberals hate real Americans that work and achieve and believe in God." (Gosh. Why on earth do we let these creatures -- "liberals" -- go on living?)

Taking their cues from such talk, a group of white people yelled insults at a group of black people lined up at a polling place for early voting in Fayetteville last Sunday. The Washington Times (yes, that newspaper) recorded video of the charming "real" Americans (and great big ole Christians to boot) and some of the junk they were shouting.

Yes, indeedy, this is the America we were all taught to honor and pledge allegiance to back in grade school and for the continuation of which our forefathers gave up their property and their lives.

From such, turn away.
