Get Yer Racist Campaign Gear Here! Vol. 2

The Texas Republican Party is hawking this button at its state convention. I think Texas Republicans are teched in the haid--but I think we all knew that already.

Here's a tip to you guys: this is why you're having trouble wooing African Americans and other minorities to your all-white boys' club:
At the start of the Bush years, the Republican National Committee — in tandem with the White House — vowed to usher in a new era of GOP minority outreach. As George W. Bush winds down his presidency, Republicans are now on the verge of going six — and probably more — years without an African-American governor, senator or House member.

That’s the longest such streak since the 1980s.

I can't imagine why!
