The "Coin of the Realm"

More evidence that character assassination is the stock in trade of the blogosphere.

I wonder what the statute of limitations is on youthful racist behavior. I guess it's somewhere between thirty years (George Allen, assuming arguendo the truth of the allegations) and sixty years (Robert Byrd, former KKK recruiter and the only Senator to vote against the nominations of both Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court).

Funny, but I used to think Waldo was above this.

UPDATE: Waldo makes the valid point in comments that I seem to be attributing accusations of racism to him. That's not fair, and to the extent that the reader may draw that conclusion, it is not fair. Such accusations were made in comments, and Waldo has little control over that content.
