Commenter 'protests too much'

November 12, 2012 

I think Denise Helms protests too much when she says she doesn't know what she did wrong.

While I do not believe she was actually soliciting anyone to go out and murder the president, I think her words display a profound coarsening of sentiment and a definite racist attitude.

Helms could not long have served the public at a nice place like the Cold Stone Creamery without possessing a modicum of knowledge about what constitutes appropriate conversation and behavior.

Helms' post on Facebook was the ugliest and most repugnant form of political sour grapes, and her succeeding statements to reporters indicate a stunning lack of grace.
