You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? I gotta a few very choice words for Jesse's Girl:

According to ProgressNowColorado:

That's noted right-wing shill Michelle Malkin posing with who we've dubbed "Swastika Guy," owing to the sign he carried right onto the stage with State Senator Josh Penry, Congressman Mike Coffman, Colorado GOP Chairman Dick Wadhams, State Senator Dave Schultheis, former Congressman Tom Tancredo, and Independence Institute president Jon Caldara, among others. None of whom did anything about it, and in fact one person defended the guy to one of our people saying that the swastika is not a Nazi symbol, but an honored Native American symbol.

Yeah....I'm sure they're all BIG Native American scholars. Lisa at La Figa found the video of the event, and it's not much more pleasant, even without allusions to the Third Reich, something that happened frequently on the campaign trail.

So given that Malkin and the prominent state Republicans said nothing about such blatant hate speech propagandizing and have no problem being seen with or photographed with such a person doesn't make them a candidate of my usual cocktail of snark and scorn, but of utter disgust.

UPDATE: Malkin responds to the controversy. Her defense? "But those mean liberals used swastikas too!" You know, I don't let my six year old use that as a defense. How sad that a grown woman thinks that makes it okay.
