I don’t know why Anne Penketh is writing stories for the New Zealand Herald when it is clear she must be blind as a bat.
Writing on the Republican National Convention, she says "The woman known as Romney’s "secret weapon" brought the almost exclusively white delegates to their feet, as they shouted "Let’s Go Mitt"."
What utter bullshit.
Anybody with eyes to see can watch the Convention on C-Span and tell you that this is just not the case. All manner of different races and ethnicities are represented by the GOP delegates. Anne Penketh is a filthy fucking liar.
It’s even more disgusting when you compare Republican elected representatives and candidates with the Democrats. Despite all the smack that Democrats talk about race, unlike the GOP they have no Hispanic Senators or Governors, and all their Senators are white. All their minority congressmen come from gerrymandered minority-majority districts.
When the party has people of the quality calibre of Mia Love, Susan Martinez, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Bobby Jindal, Condoleeza Rice, Marco Rubio, Alan West and Luis Fortuno, all of whom had speaking slots at the convention (though Jindal had to pass his up), it is ridiculous to write such appalling crap in a biased attempt to demagogue an incredibly racially diverse party. The Herald can do better than this woman.
