Well, now. Pure racist gold for Brown's Republican opponents, who have been sinking more deeply each day into the muck to portray Brown as something that he isn't. To the blogger's credit, Hallett wrote, the blogger placed the correct non-racial definition at the top of his post. To its discredit, the RSC removed the definition and mass-mailled the blog post to news outlets.
There are two ways to look at this untidy event: The RSC is either trying to advance another myth, or it is too dumb to know what the word means. We like the second choice. But we're not sure.
