MARK STEYN: The Democrats’ Fake Hate Crime. “I disagree with John Lewis (Democrat, Georgia) politically but I have always respected him as a genuine civil rights warrior. And I feel slightly queasy at the thought that he would dishonor both the movement and his own part in it for the cheapest of partisan points – in the same way I would be disgusted by a Holocaust survivor painting a swastika on his own door and blaming it on his next-door neighbor over a boundary dispute. But that’s what the Democratic Party has been reduced to – faking hate crimes as pathetically as any lonely, mentally ill college student.”

(Via Obama voter Ann Althouse, who comments: “By the way, I called bullshit on the story as soon as it was reported.” Video of her doing so is below, more at the link.)
