Not exactly. Remember back when some idiot posted a video in an open contest comparing Bush to Hitler that was held by MoveOn.org? Never mind that the video was removed within thirty minutes, rightwing political operatives and their lapdogs in the traditional media haven’t stopped talking about it. I wonder if this picture posted on the Republican National Committee’s Facebook site–which has also been removed only after six days–will also be discussed endlessly for weeks (Warning: This is a really offensive picture, which is why it’s below the fold. May not be work safe):

But really, it’s just a coinkydink that this happened, and I’m sure it, in no way, reflects poorly on the racial attitudes of the Republican Party. Not at all. I’m sure our media betters probably think it’s not even worthy of discussion.
It only took the RNC six days to remove it after all.
