While a number of speakers -- such as Railroad Commission chairman Michael Williams and Mike Huckabee -- have praised the advance of Barack Obama and what it means towards a colorblind society, at least one vendor hasn't gotten the message.
At the Republican state convention, a booth hosted by Republicanmarket was selling a pin Saturday that says: If Obama is President will we still call it the White House.
There were other pins that weren't necessarily conveying the positive, inclusive, united front that has been portrayed during the convention. One said, "Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Deportation" and another, "I will hold my nose when I vote for McCain"

It will be interesting to see whether Obama will change it to some other name.

My rules of sociology (abridged greatly):
1) People are stupid
2) Bigotry, hate, blindness, self-loathing, and ignorance know no sides, no color, and no politics. They are everywhere and seem to be breeding.
3) Where there are people, there's someone trying to make a buck propagating idiocy.
