As we've pointed out before, some people just can't grasp the concept that everything they post on the internet or send in and e-mail can be spread

As we've pointed out before, some people just can't grasp the concept that everything they post on the internet or send in and e-mail can be spread around the planet in a matter of seconds.

Case in point, one Audra Shay. Audra is the leading candidate to head up the Young Republicans National Federation and has a Facebook page with many friends. For those of you who use social networking sites, you know that you can't always control what your friends post on your pages. However, you don't always have to agree with them, especially when that friend is a racist pig. (see picture above)

The blogger at the Arkansas Blog who provided the screen cap of Shay's page notes that she has been endorsed by the YRNF and lets her down easy, referring to her as "clueless." There is one silver lining. A few of Shay's friends denounced the use of the racial slur -- Is there hope for those young Republicans after all?

Can you help us out?
