'Defy the White tyrant'

The Republican National Committee (RNC) Web site was defaced on election day with a lengthy essay impugning George Dubya's fitness for the office he seeks.

"George W. Bush would make a great president for those states which traffic not so much in decency but bigotry. Not acceptance but hate. Not love but fear. There is no sense of human camaraderie amongst those who live south of the Mason-Dixon line," the author says.

One might detect a few personal 'issues' of White guilt as he goes on, "gays, Blacks, Latinos, and even women, (once they've been knocked up and sent into a nine month hibernation until they can produce a male heir,) are treated as less than human. They're not even given the 3/5ths [legal recognition] that slaves once were. Their manifest destiny is serving that great tyrant, the straight white male."

"Voting for Bush would be voting for myself and voting against anyone not like me," he observes.

After detailing Al Gore's numerous assets in comparison with his opponent, the author concludes that he is, if not quite attractive, the lesser of two evils, and that "as such, I must vote Gore, and urge you to do so."

The RNC has made a characteristically paranoid statement in response to the attack.

"It's obviously a dirty trick late in the campaign by the Democrats," RNC spokesman Tom Yu told the Reuters wire service during an interview. "We're disappointed at the large amount of dirty tricks being played this late in the campaign by the Democrats," he added.

We're not all that confident in this assertion, but the paranoia is familiar, as we recall from an earlier story where the Reps interpreted a spam campaign as a Dem dirty trick. Indeed, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Web site came under attack yesterday as well. A notable difference here is that the Dems didn't rush to blame their opponents. ®
