It has often been joked that if you want to make a man disappear, you elect him to the Vice-Presidency. The same could be said of the statewide office of Lieutenant Governor. California's Lt. Gov., Cruz Bustamante, has largely flown under the radar these last five years, including one under-reported incident when he used the "N word" in a speech to an African-American group (causing 1/4 of them to walk out on him).
The incident happened two years ago, but I don't recall hearing about it until today. At first I wondered if it was just a smear tactic and part of a vast right-wing conspiracy, so I did a little research. It's true. You can check the references yourself.
That makes just as nervous as the Austrian candidate (Arnold something-or-other), whose father joined the Nazi party just after the German's took Vienna.
But that's not the most shocking thing I've seen today. Check out these new toys:
