House Majority Whip Scalise confirms he spoke to white supremacists in 2002 - The Washington Post

I hope this doesn't make the Republicans look racist.

Still, how could you not know? I'm no expert on the KKK, but even I know who David Duke is. So either he's a racist or a moron. And if your politics attract that kind of element, whether you're actively courting it or not, you're still suspect.

Wait, how can you lead your local chapter and not be an expert?

He spoke at a convention for the group, so I would imagine that it was clear when he was speaking to them just who they were. It's a suspension of disbelief greater than watching a Michael Bay film to believe his story that he didn't know they what they were.

Two body builders argue on the internet about how many days are in the week | Death and Taxes

I think the world needs to know about Flyingpig. Maybe he'll become internet famous and trolls will track him and Cheryl and Paul and Derek down and we'll all finally get to see them and hear all sides of the story.
