You rock Colin
Respect to Colin Powell for speaking out against the Republicans' racist undertones towards Barack Obama and anyone else not from a small town that went for W.
C. Powell: "I'm also troubled not with what Senator McCain says but what members of the party say and it is permitted to be said, such things as, "Well, you know Mr. Obama is a Muslim." Well, the correct answer is that Mr. Obama is not a Muslim. He's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is: What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no. That's not America."
