Comments: I'm melting....

I was in the ICP last week (International Center for Photography) in Manhattan. They've great photos from every historical period. One was of a billboard that the Republicans put up during the 1950s. It is amazing. It shows huge monster hands reaching for a vulnerable looking white woman. The headline says "Keep yourselves safe! Vote Republican!"

This photo had been made into a postcard. I would have scanned it and put it on my blog, but I didn't want to violate anyone's copyright.

Five years ago, I might have argued the point, but today it seems to me that there's a significant portion of the Republican Leadership who is still more than happy to use similar disgusting tactics to appeal to buried, unconscious, or even conscious bigotry, in order to gain power.
