GOP leader Michael Steele claims to be shocked, shocked by former President Jimmy Carter’s statement that racism may play a role in some of the extreme and personal attacks on President Barack Obama.

Steele thrashed Democrats for “injecting race into the debate over critical issues facing American families…”

You know those Dems. They’ll probably find some crazy ‘racial’ subtext to Rush Limabaugh complaining that “in Obama’s America the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering, ‘Yay, right on, right on, right on, right on.'”
