The Republican Party reached a new low when Sarah Palin used her primetime speech to mock community organizers by saying this:
I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer”, except that you have actual responsibilities.
…and the Republican Party replied…with an applause! Poplicks (my go-to blog for Pop & Politics) put it best:
In no uncertain terms, they told Dr. King, A. Philip Randolph, Dolores Huerta, Cesar Chavez, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, and countless other social workers, labor activists, religious leaders (on all ends of the political spectrum), and champions for the underprivileged that their work was meaningless and worthless.
Is it November yet? I’ve never been this anxious to vote.
