Some time ago, Janeane Garofalo stated that conservatives are racist straight up, hating a black man. More recently, she said that “Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same”. So according to Ms. Garafalo, conservatives are racist if they don’t support a black man, and they are racist if they do.
