…but then, you knew that already. The GOP is, after all, the political party where a President who was the governor of a Southern state can casually say “We looked like a normal couple” when explaining how he and his (African-American) National Security Advisor managed to avoid being detected on their way to a surprise visit to the troops in Iraq*. Yet one more way that former President Bush continues to be a large, indigestible lump in the Left’s narrative… but I digress.
*That, by the way, is what an actual dog whistle ‘sounds’ like: and the message that it gave to racists was You’re not welcome around here.
