Tim Carney | Liberal journalists finding (i.e. making up) Republican racism everywhere

The job of many liberal journalists these days apparently is to discern veiled Republican racism wherever they can find it – or make it up.

The Washington Post’s Harold Meyerson, for instance has a tired column today asserting that “today’s Republican Party represents the worst traditions of the South’s dankest backwaters.” Basically opposing tax hikes and greenhouse-gas emission caps show the GOP’s roots in white racism, or something.

Meanwhile Jack Hitt at Harpers rolls out a Republicans-are-Racist charge that involves ignoring all the relevant facts.
