Racism and the modern Republican party

It's old news how comments on Facebook and other virtual public forums often come back to bite public figures in the ass. What's remarkable is how long it takes the authors to realize they've been ass-bitten and feebly search for a band-aid. Case in point, Young Republican chair hopeful Audra Shay's recent Facebook fiasco (which I'm still not sure she's fully addressed):

“Obama Bin Lauden [sic] is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals," wrote one of Shay's Facebook friends, Eric Pike."

Replied Shay: "You tell em Eric! lol"

Keep on digging, GOP.

Read all about it in today's Daily Beast.
