Powell Endorsement

A few weeks ago conservatives were forwarding a viral video of a Palin-McCain march in Manhattan. The marchers were jeered and suffered rude gestures from annoyed New York "liberal elites." The video was part of the Democrats as intolerant fascists and socialists campaign in full swing. 

Of course, people from Colin Powell's generation can remember marches too. Marches that involved dogs and fire hoses, police batons and prison time. People like Powell might also be familiar with rallies and crowds shouting about black folks in even more negative terms suffered by the Neo Cons marching through the Upper West Side. Besides his being made into a stage prop by the second Bush administration, it's possible Colin Powell is sincerely alarmed by the McCain campaign's embrace of old style Republican racist and red baiting politics.
