So local Republicans showed they had a modicum of shame deep down in their hearts by removing the President Obama punching bag from their tent at the Delaware County fair. This gracious act clearly represents what President George W. “Nukular” Bush meant by compassionate conservatism. Way to go, Hoosier honkies.
Think about it this way, though: 50, 60 years ago these same Republicans would have put on their white sheets and gone out and hung a black man. Here, they just had a harmless representation of a black man that folks could whack with one hand while using their other hand to clutch a fried Twinkie.
The Indiana GOP has clearly come a long way in the past half-century. Pat yourselves on the back. Just make sure you’ve finished the Twinkie first.
