    I especially love the first quote in this article:

    "I haven't seen this much anger in a long, long time," said Billy Roper, a 36-year-old who runs a group called White Revolution in Russellville, Ark. "Nothing has awakened normally complacent white Americans more than the prospect of America having an overtly nonwhite president."

    Leave it to an Arkansan to coin the term "overtly non-white."

    Wow. I'm embarrassed that this story could even be written.

    There are numerous reasons one might rationally prefer McCain to Obama for POTUS.

    But if the fact he's black is your number one reason: You need to get out, more.

    I'm embarrassed, but it needed to be written. The first step in defeating a problem is acknowledging the problem exists.

    Gee, the racist pigs made it up that they are getting higher numbers.
    Knock me over with a feather.

    Of course you'd find that on Sweetness & Light, the blog that has illuminated so many Americans with great headlines like "Obama Wore Muslim Garb During Kenya Trip" and proudly links hate mongers Ann Coulter and Mark Levin.

    Traffic numbers don't lie.

    Maybe not. But if you actually read the article a little more carefully, its entire premise seems to be to discredit the WaPo, and accuses Obama of forcing them to lie about the numbers.

    Get used to these stories. These bags of pus are everywhere, not just in Arkansas, not just in the South.

    Sweetness & Light? Is that the little pink packet, or the yellow one?

    Anyway, article addressed the inflation of numbers by group leaders. ADL is also quoted as saying they've seen an increase in hate-web traffic.
