This Week in Stupid Politics: Slap Hillary, "Uncorked Animals," and "The Half-White Muslim"
Last week, a former Republican governor referred to Muslims as “uncorked animals” on his radio show. Elsewhere, multiple neocons on the news pushed the U.S. to return to Cold War-style brinksmanship with Russia. In Arizona, detractors of President Obama called him a “47 percent Negro,” while a Republican congressman in Florida likened tanning beds to JIm Crow policy. Oh, and a conservative super PAC posted an animation of Hillary Clinton being beaten on its website (and encouraged its users to take part).
In other words, it was a standard week on the American right. Here’s a round up of the craziness, in case you blinked.
