Let's be fair here. The recent Vox Pop "True Colors" writer complained about name calling from the left, but ignored the sludge that comes from the right. Obama posters with Hitler mustaches and Nazi swastikas. Limbaugh and Beck, referring to Democrats as fascists and Nazis and Obama as a black racist. The right has shown their tasteless "true colors" from the start. As for the term tea-bagger, they made that call on their own. With a motto that states, "Just say no" and nothing else to offer, the term "regressive" certainly fits.
