What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "Cohen Supporters Blast Tinker Ad as 'Racial Politics'" by Jackson Baker:

"It looks like Ms. Tinker may be getting her campaign ad advice from John McCain's camp. Hey, if scaring white folks about a black candidate is an acceptable tactic, why shouldn't the reverse be acceptable as well, right? It looks to me like despicability (and desperation) crosses racial lines." — gadfly

About "Homebuilder's Group Calls for Rep. Blackburn's Defeat":

"Pistol-packing Marsha is going down. Good riddance, darlin." — rantboy

About "How to Talk to a Tranny" by Bianca Phillips, which discussed terms considered appropriate for transsexuals:

"Try being civil as you would any other person you might meet with an obvious handicap. Don't try to talk down to her or disparage her. You might find her fluency and verbal adroitness is superior to your own. And she's been insulted by experts; you won't have much to offer in the way of original thoughts." — Terry

Comment of the Week:

About "Barack: Call Me!" by Marty Aussenberg, concerning John McCain's TV commercials comparing Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton:

"They should use Arnold Schwarzenegger as the voiceover for those commercials. Or maybe Charlton Heston." — fancycwabs
