Pat Cunningham offers an unabashedly liberal perspective on national politics. A note of caution: The language gets a little salty on some of the sites to which this blog links. So, don't say you weren't warned. By the way, this blog's name is inspired by the Will Rogers quote, \x34All politics is applesauce.\x34 In 41 years as a print and broadcast journalist, most of those years with the Rockford (Ill.) Register Star, Pat has covered national politics under eight American presidents. He's attended 10 national political conventions, Republican and Democratic alike, and has interviewed countless prominent political players, including Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.

The right-wing noise machine, embarrassed by the racist remarks made by right-wing hero Cliven Bundy, is trying to peddle a bogus claim that Democrats should be equally embarrassed by the racist remarks made by Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA.

But the comparison is preposterous.

Bundy’s status as an idol to the more extreme elements of the Republican Party — at least until he started spouting off about how “the Negro” was better off under slavery — is beyond question.

On the other hand, Sterling’s ties to the Democratic Party are relatively minor, unremarkable and previously unknown to the general public.

There’s much more on this matter HERE and HERE. And at least one conservative blogger (HERE) concedes that Sterling’s ties to the Democrats are tenuous at best.
