Turning lies into truth

Dear Editor:

Noting how the extreme right wing (Palin, Beck, Limbaugh) are calling the president and the NAACP racist, I have a reading for them.

Taylor Branch’s seminal study on the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. If they read this (and I would hope they could or would) they will realize their lilly-white Tea Party movement is on the wrong side of history; more on the side that believes if you tell a lie often enough some might believe it.

By the way (for students of Beck University), the three-volume study is in paperback.
