Racist? Nasty? Moi?
The column was about a woman named Cindy, a mother of three from Morton, who told me about an incident at the local K-Mart that involved her, a black woman, a shopping cart, a racial insult, a threat of physical violence, and then a bizarre shout of "Go Obama."
In a letter to the editor which can be found here, Mr. McGovern makes obvious his dripping contempt for a person I found to be a rather humble mother-of-three.
Readers can judge for themselves the tone of the column and whether it is "nasty" and "racist."
I will say such contempt for people like Cindy is becoming an unattractive hallmark of the left.
It is also becoming routine for many Obama supporters to accuse their candidate's detractors of being "racist." This is not helping their candidate. But it, apparently, makes them feel morally superior to people with whom they differ politically. And they won't give that feeling up for any mere political candidate.
