From ace correspondent Mark Breton:
I am sick to death of watching these Republicans, the party I belong to, be incapable of making good decisions. I am certain that the state of Tennessee has labor laws in place to make it hard to fire employees (thanks, Dems), even an employee that misuses state property and sends out unmistakably racist content in her emails.
You know as well as I do that -- considering that the picture we all saw has gone out, and that she said she sent to the wrong list -- more than this has gone out from her work or personal computer. This is America: You can hate anyone you want to, but you are going to pay the price for that hate.
This woman should have been fired because of the content of her character
! Reprimand? It's as if Diane Black has no political savvy whatsoever. Why in the world has Diane Black clung to the illusion that saying a few "make nice" comments is going to get her through this? Who is advising these people?
It is always about character and integrity. It doesn't matter what the libs do, the dems do, or anyone else does. No one else's conduct ever excuses poor judgment. And this was not a mistake. My kid spilling milk on the floor was a mistake. This was premeditated racist stupidity. This was a choice, and poor one at that. And it is compounded by the fact that the Republican Party lacks enough integrity at the state level to take action when the situation demands it. Call me so I can help you get your heads together. A reprimand? Come on! --Mark Breton
