From Alan Colmes Liberaland, apparently Tea partier Dale Robertson isn't just a racist, he's a bad liar as well.

Tea Partier Tells Mediaite Racist Sign Was Forged; We Have Him On Record Defending Its Use:

Self-proclaimed Tea Party founder Dale Robertson told Tommy Christopher at Mediaite that the infamous photo of him holding a sign with the n-word (which he spelled wrong) is a fake. [...]

However, Roberston appeared on my radio show on January 7, and defended his use of the n-word. At 4:03 into the video below, I asked Robertson what he meant by the misspelled word.

Colmes: What’s N-I-G-G-A-R?

Robertson: Well, I just don’t agree with what Congress is doing to the American people. Really the proper word is “slave”…[Oakland mayor and former Congressman] Ron Dellums actually coined that word.

Colmes: Did you spell it wrong?

Roberston: I don’t think so.

Not once did Robertson deny using the word. In fact bent himself into a pretzel defending its use.
