Dude. Dude:

That happened yesterday in Alabama.

OK, maybe we’re jumping the gun a little. Let’s give Holmes a chance to clarify his remarks:


Yeah, that really doesn’t make him look any better.

So, for those keeping score at home, a Democratic politician admitted to making up crap and smearing Justice Clarence Thomas as an Uncle Tom.

That seems pretty newsworthy to us. Wouldn’t you agree?


So why didn’t we hear about it right after it happened? Didn’t the MSM think it was worth covering?

This one certainly wasn’t thoroughly vetted — by the public or the mainstream media.
