Oh man. Via Balloon Juice: Marilyn Davenport, Souther California Tea Party Activist:
Reached by telephone and asked if she thought the email was appropriate, Davenport said, “Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people—mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.”
Oh gee…she has friends who are black! That makes it all better then! How much does anyone want to put down that none of the “few people” she sent this crap to were on the list of her “black friends”?
What an asshole.
