DGA Martin ‘Whitebread’ O’Malley (D, MD) speaks on Republican racism!
So. We got Maryland Governor and DGA head Martin O’Malley out there SNEERING about us awful, awful racist Republicans (for the full effect, assume that I’m fluttering my hands like I’ve got the St. Vitus’ dance): Using Governor Rick Perry (formerly) of the RGA for that, too.
