You probably remember back in September when Jimmy Carter's grandson, James Carter IV,was instrumental in digging up and helping publicize Romney's 47% video. We all enjoyed the poetic justice of the moment that very likely contributed to Romney's defeat.

Now James Carter IV is at it again, this time digging up actual audio of Republican strategist Lee Atwater explaining the "Southern Strategy":

More at the link plus the video. THERE IS RACIAL SLURS.

    I read the words before, but something about hearing them spoken is just chilling.
