It seems if you are a conservative and open your mouth, you are a racist. By the time this is all over Chris Matthews will be the first black reporter. I am sure if he searches his family tree deep enough he is sure to find a black ancestor somewhere back there. If that becomes his claim to fame I will certainly not challenge him.
Or we could take a page from the Dems playbook and redefine racist to mean ... Americans of all decendents espousing conservative values and upholding the Constitution of the US. I believe this comes close the the Dems definition, except they would exclude blacks.
