Another hilarious e-mail from the right wing, this time from so-called Dr. David McKalip, a Florida neurosurgeon, tea-bagger, and – can you tell? – opponent of health care reform. When news of the image leaked, he was at first defiant, then contrite, which makes us all feel a whole lot better about the state of racism in this country.

Update: It seems McKalip's apology was, umm, less than sincere. In a later post, he says he is withdrawing from the health care debate and complains about being a victim of race-baiting "powerful enemies." Check out the scary conversation between him and "like-minded" friends who are "willing to stand up for freedom."
