It's About Time.

Gawker finally notices good ol' boy Robert Stacy McCain.

Vincent's co-writer on Donkeycons was Robert Stacy McCain, a former Washington Times editor who writes things like this:

[T]he media now force interracial images into the public mind and a number of perfectly rational people react to these images with an altogether natural revulsion. The white person who does not mind transacting business with a black bank clerk may yet be averse to accepting the clerk as his sister-in-law, and THIS IS NOT RACISM, no matter what Madison Avenue, Hollywood and Washington tell us.

That was from a private e-mail McCain once wrote that a recipient posted online, so in his defense, McCain (no relation to Palin's running mate) wouldn't write something like that in public. In public, he says things like slaves and whites in the Old South had "cordial and affectionate relations," is a member of the League of the South, which wants to secede from the union (again!), and writes for a web site called VDare, which proudly publishes the work"rational and civil...white nationalists" who "unashamedly work for their people."

I assume it'll take at least half a day for McCain to respond; he's really busy filing breathless dispatches from Kentucky, all of which are about how he's filing dispatches from Kentucky.

Curious indeed that someone so proud of being a reporter...

-- "Yet I am a professional writer..."
-- "Understand that I've been a professional journalist for 23 years..."
-- "Let me see if I can explain to you, Charles, what the basic problem is: I am professional journalist, and have been since 1986."
-- "I remind you that I am a professional journalist..."

...would do so little of it.
