I’ve been really hesitant to write about the frightening racism that’s been displayed at McCain/Palin rallies lately.  It’s partially because I don’t fully understand what’s going on, and partially because I have such strong feelings about it on a gut level, that I’m afraid what my feelings would look like if I truly explored this recent phenomenon intellectually.

Because of this I was really glad to see Frank Rich’s editorial in the Times today.  He describes what’s been going on in such a thoughtful and comprehensive way.  One thing that struck me about this editorial is the overwhelming number of hyperlinks.  The law student in me appreciates a man who cites his sources, something the Right seems to have a hard time doing these days.
