It's a sad day for the Republican Party and American politics in general when civil political dialogue is replaced with hate and bigotry.

At least Rachel Hoff admitted openly that she did something wrong and apologized for it.

Audra Shay never apologized for her hateful statements.

“It was also learned that ranking members of YR Renewal [Audra Shay's Team] were responsible for trying to block the Nevada delegation from being chartered and seated. Sources claim that they allowed them to be seated once they realized Nevada’s delegates supported Renewal.”

Let me say “Thanks, but no thanks” to supporting the Republican Party and these types of leaders.

The racism inside the closet of many a frightened white Republican voter is coming to the surface with Obama in the White House. It's sad to see what was once a fairly intelligent party that fought for freedom slide back down into the slimy depths of racist politics. It's 2009, and the Republicans have no chance of winning elections any time soon with sort of nonsense going on.

Many a lib on the Web likes to “misoverexaggerate” more than Bush could ever have been accused of doing.

I think you actually got it wrong on both of the parties. Unfortunately, both appear to be about “retaining power” to whatever level that is in whichever year it happens to fall. How many House or Senate members of either party would you trust to babysit your children? We need to wake this country up! If you don't understand economics nor ethics/morality, you need to educate yourself or don't vote!

It is a facebook comment. Wow. Who reads all of their Facebook comments? Yes we should heap praise on Cassie for taking a screen shot of this and sending it to all of the liberal blogs. We need more young repubs to feed us internal dirt. But really, is this really a story? Have you read up on the Louisiana chick and seen all the crap she has done to promote conservative ideology amongst African Americans in Louisiana? The guy she ran as her vice chair in the state is black. Let's go find some real stories about racism and injustice and leave this one up to the young repubs to fight out amongst themselves. Usually you can find real stories on this sight so let's get back to business.

Go green, go communist, but get the hell out of the republican party. It is strictly “of, by and for the rich.” The Democrats are “of, by and for the biggest “contributors.”

If anything, this ignorant little republican will get 5,000 more votes for her approval of racism. The Republican party is nothing but racists.

The fool blacks, women and homosexuals in the Republican party are so ignorant I wouldn't hire them to pound sand down a rat hole.

Pled Guilty to Voter Fraud, even worse!

The Republican Party stopped being the the party of Lincoln when Strom Thurmond became a Republican. A simple view of the “red” portion of last year's presidential map should have put paid to any claim the Republican Party has on Lincoln's legacy.

Growing up in 50's, the Republican party I knew was one of fiscal conservatism, libertarianism, social tolerance and a reluctance to become involved in foreign wars. The first black post-Reconstruction senator was Republican Edward Brooke of my home state Massachusetts. Until recently, the Republican party had more women in the Senate than the Democrats. Neither of whom bear any resemblance politically to their southern colleagues.

Among the young and old Republicans not of the extreme right, there seems to be some kind of nostalgia for a party that hasn't existed for the better part of 40 years.

Ms. Wallendar may have shown courage in standing up against the deep seated racism of the current Republican South. But, like King Canute, she is trying to hold back the tide.

As a Democrat, I say bless you Miss Wallendar. I want to see a Republican Party which returns to those principles noted above. We need you. Unfortunately, it's not something that's going to happen soon enough. The contemporary Republican Party is the mule kicking the barn down.

My guess is that this will give fuel to those who have wanted to say something but decided instead to be “nice.” I really think that is what Mrs. Shay was attempting to do though it was horribly ill advised. Thank you though and may you enjoy your ride of being “internet famous” you have done a very good deed for your party and your nation and deserve it in my opinion. I also hope that the party is watching you as you have shown more leadership in that moment than I have seen from the party in years, good show.

It's not everyday you wake up to find yourself quoted on major media outlets, I am completely humbled. Some of the letters brought tears to my eyes.

Seriously, I would wish that no one would be impressed that I stood up to racism, as it is a normal humane reaction. I am no hero. Hundreds of YRs are outraged at this behavior. I am not an exception. She is the exception, not the rule.

If she even had to debate whether to say something… sad sad sad.
