ExxonMobil's counteroffensive against allegations it deceived shareholders and the general public about climate change risks has a messaging problem. Company PR flacks just can't get their story straight.

Society is not colorblind. Men like Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Dr. Ben Carson, though rising to the very pinnacles of society, must renounce the very safety net which helped propel them to such dizzying heights as the ticket to admission to the monochromatic conservative country club.

Allowing ourselves to be gaslighted undermines everything from the evaluation of candidates to the functions of a county clerk to the safety of the public.

Jonah Goldberg doesn't believe there are any racists in the Republican Party. In his column last week, he began by explaining that the Republican Party is, in fact, not racist at all. Apologies if you reflexively spat out your beverage, soaking your keyboard. Send the bill to Goldberg.

So who, precisely, is Peter Brimelow, and why should the rest of us be concerned when a white nationalist racist like him appears at the same event as Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin?

But unlike the caricature of a politician who's the bastard child of pollsters and focus groups, bad things happen for Mitt when he ignores his script and orders off the teleprompter. What if Mitt's real problem is that he just can't stop being authentic?
