Prominent Republican talk show host shows us how the right is bringing dignity and honor to political discourse.
On the March 31 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program, Neal Boortz said that Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) "looks like a ghetto slut." Boortz was commenting on a March 29 incident in which McKinney allegedly struck a police officer at a Capitol Hill security checkpoint. Boortz said that McKinney's "new hair-do" makes her look "like a ghetto slut," like "an explosion at a Brillo pad factory," like "Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence," and like "a shih tzu." McKinney is the first African-American woman elected to Congress from Georgia.This will pass barely noticed and is so common that it's not even considered news by the press.
Keep in mind that this guy probably makes over a million a year for saying things like this. The right wing richly rewards the cogs in their noise machine.
