So, I was looking over Bill Bolling’s endorsement list, which he released yesterday, and other than being a pathetic list of “formers” (as Mason Conservative calls them) and “a rogue’s gallery of the most universally despised people in the entire region” (as a conservative activist who emailed Mason Conservative calls them), one other thing popped out at me: the list contains a notorious racist, someone so bad he was fired from the McCain campaign. Does this bring back memories?
You need to read this column to believe it. In “humor” he accuses Obama of wanting to paint the White House black, supporting reparations, changing the national anthem to the “black national anthem”, teaching “black liberation theology in all churches”, and replacing the flag with a “star and crescent logo”.
For once, the McCain campaign actually did something about this type of behavior (meanwhile, of course, they allow Sarah Palin to continue her Hate and Incitement to Violence Tour 2008):
“Bobby Lee May’s comments about Barack Obama are offensive, insulting and have no place in political discourse. Mr. May’s comments in no way, shape or form reflect the views or opinions held by John McCain or his campaign. The McCain campaign wholeheartedly disavows Mr. May’s column. Mr. May is no longer a part of our campaign organization.” – Gail Gitcho, McCain mid-Atlantic spokesman
Given all this by Buchanan County Republican Committee Chairman Bobby May, why on earth does Bill Bolling list this guy as a key grassroots endorser of his campaign? Is he that desperate? Given polls like this one, which show Ken Kookinelli with an essentially insurmountable lead over Bolling, the answer to that question is almost certainly “yes!”
