Just last month, Bob Beckel of Fox News’ “The Five” managed to offend a good portion of Texas by insinuating that elections in the state are routinely rigged by racist sheriffs. Today, he went off on “a bunch of crackers in the South” who are trying to use voter ID to disenfranchise blacks.

Not everybody in Texas and North Carolina is a cracker, though. There must be a lot, though, because Beckel sees them everywhere.

No, it’s not racist. It’s a compliment, sort of.


If you haven’t been offended by Beckel before, you haven’t been watching very long.
