When all you have is a hammer...

You know how Republicans don't want to raise the debt ceiling?

It's because they're racist, obviously.

I'll go all the way and say that this kind of self-interested or monomonocular racebaiting isn't just stupid and offensive; it's evil. It took the blood and sweat of generations of activists fighting severe oppression and violent retribution to get to the point where racism is a strong taboo in our culture, and these assholes have taken about four years to turn it into as meaningless a slur as "poopyhead" or "socialist". If that isn't evil, I dunno what is.
