Gotta Love The Bigotry!

I won't even respond to the point Campos is trying to make -- the much more important issue is the extreme bigotry that he shows and the fact that his editors considered it acceptable for their newspaper.
What's the Matter With Kansas? tackles a related issue: How the Republican Party manages to hold together a coalition made up of, to put it as tactfully as possible, snake-handling fundie freaks and those who accept Milton Friedman as their personal lord and savior.

I'm curious -- would a description of the Democrat Party as a coalition made up of "d*ck-sucking homos and those whose living comes from sucking at the government teat" ever make it into the newspaper? If not, why not? And if not, why was Campos' equally offensive turn of phrase allowed?

Let's find out.

I wonder what folks at the taxpayer-funded University of Colorado have to say about such bigotry, especially since he is using his taxpayer-funded university email address as part of his propagation of bigotry? Care to find out?
