Remember Florida Republican State Committeewoman Carol Carter of Hillsborough County, the GOP funny woman who sent out this knee-slapper of racist email?

I'm confused.

How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn't get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?

Well, she's back and wants her old job that she resigned from back. Oh, and she's still mad that someone leaked her emails, but not sorry for the content.

At the local party meeting this week, Carter continued the "sorry you found out" apology tour, saying:

Please accept my deep and sincere apologies. I was wrong to have shared any such materials even with a few.

Hmmm, not sorry for the horrendously insensitive and racist content? Just that you shared it? Nice. But she goes on:

The media frenzy that happened was beyond my comprehension, and in the heat of the moment I e-mailed a resignation.

To those of you who leaked to the media, I'm ashamed of you.

That's right, email leakers and evil media forces- Carol is ashamed of YOU!

Carter has tried unsuccessfully to rescind her resignation, but said she would run again in the March election set to pick her replacement. Because you just can't get enough Katrina jokes and no one can deliver them quite like Carol Carter.

I'll keep you updated on if she makes "racism is funny as long as you don't get caught" her new campaign slogan...

As a 64-yr old gay, white, former Texan, I simply cannot wait for all these old white racist assholes to die. Please die faster. Faster, goddamit. Let's rid the planet of their (my) generation.

Huh. I'm not trying to make a cheap Holocaust reference here, but this does remind me of a brief exchange towards the end of The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl, which I'll paraphrase:

Someone asks: "Do you have any regrets?" LR: "Of course, look what it did to my life!"

LR's cinematic talent and innovation notwithstanding, it was clear she remained clueless about the problems with her role in history, right to the end. Her only regret was that it put such a damper on her social life, damn it. C.C. is mad because, really, her racist rhetoric was just meant for close friends and everybody else is just SO mean about it, and she'd like her job back, whine, whine.

Scary.

Yeah, it isn't like she wasn't expressing the thoughts of thousands of others at the time she put out the email.

She just got caught saying it.

Yes, her generation needs to head on to greener pastures, my fear is that they have spread just enough of their vileness to their children and grand children so it won't make much of a difference in the long run after all.

C'mon, pardon me for being looks-ist, but her shirt is made from a shower curtain. It's not like she's a classy lady - obviously.

Waymon, Thank you for shining a light in the "dark" places and proving that racism is not just the challenge of people of color. This woman; with her challenges actually proves it's not our problem at all.

"my fear is that they have spread just enough of their vileness to their children and grand children so it won't make much of a difference in the long run after all."

Yes, this is my fear too. I got that email a couple of weeks ago from a "friend" who is in her early 40s. She thought it was hysterical til I asked her why. She stuttered and spluttered and really couldn't explain the humor, just said "forget it. if I have to explain it, you won't get it anyway." No, I'm proud to say I wouldn't.

Uh-huh. And assasinator Dan White did exactly the same thing: resigned in the heat of the moment and then wanted his job back. When he didn't get it, he killed two people in cold blood while high on Twinkies.

Wonder what creative defense Carol will use for her white trash remarks?
