Freedoms Watch--"Headlines"

While the opposition is trying to avoid Rep. Mark Udall's vote failure by pouring its attention on Bob Schaffer's son, others are more concerned about the candidates themselves rather than contrived "gotcha" stories about potentially wayward offspring:

Let Schaffer deal with his son's ill-thought, sophomoric sense of "humor," one that is assuredly not shared by Schaffer the father, or his supporters. Faux outrage and projection through extrapolation--the son is racist or has racist tendencies, which were therefore fostered or not discouraged at home, and therefore reflect that the GOP is racist . . . etc. demonstrates more about confirming the liberals' tendencies to stereotype conservatives and Republicans, and says less about this actual situation.
