Makes one wonder what's in the water over at Daily Kos to make the alumni so overtly racist. Of course, lest we not forget the following picture of Joe Lieberman displayed at the Huffington Post by Firedoglake blogger Jane Hamsher. For those that have forgotten, Hamsher was working closely with Kos himself to win Ned Lamont's nomination in Connecticut:
Yes, these folks sure are tolerant, aren’t they?
