The attacks from Republicans and conservative talk radio on Colin Powell after his endorsement of Barack Obama really don’t surprise me at all.

They are, after all, a bunch of well-known ass hats who are quite comfortable with this type of ass hatty behavior.

I’m not even surprised to hear Rush Limbaugh calling Colin Powell a racist for endorsing Barack Obama. It sounds exactly like something Rush might say.
