My greatest fear tonight was that Hoffman would win NY 23. What hell would have been unleashed if the Teabaggers and the Tundra Twitter had pulled this off. This seat has been in the Republicans control since 1852! It took Facebook and Palin to do what the Dems haven’t been able to do for for 157 years! I know the Repubs will say it does not matter, but it certainly does matter. The egg that was left on the faces of the right wing knuckledraggers is going to be priceless. Thank you NY 23!

For some strange reason, police invoke some unwritten rule whenever they encounter a Black man or Woman. The circumstance of the encounter is immaterial. It is as if those who are Black, Brown are instantly dismissed as less-than. Or what I call negation of the concept of being created in the image of God.
