IT ONLY COUNTS IF YOU WIN WHITEY'S VOTE

Via Ailes and others, according to The Hill, Republican Congressman Tom Davis has "reservations" over their candidate's loss in South Dakota on Tuesday:
Republicans downplayed Diedrich’s 2,981-vote loss, their second consecutive special-election defeat this year, and said they looked forward to watching Herseth defend her six-month voting record before the November rematch.

“If you take out the Indian reservation, we would have won,” said Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), former chairman of the NRCC.
Hmm. Or if Native American votes counted less than white votes -- something it seems you wouldn't mind, and you certainly imply -- "we" would have won!

Marshall has a lot more on the tendency of some Republicans to view non-white voters as not quite real voters.

UPDATE: Digby's take on this is pretty funny: "On the other hand, if you take out the assholes, Herseth would have won in a landslide."

Hehehe.
