You will after you read this from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal (video at the link):

State elections officials Wednesday narrowly rejected a Milwaukee Assembly candidate’s attempt to run with the slogan “NOT the ‘whiteman’s bitch’ ” under her name on the ballot.

Ieshuh Griffin, an independent candidate with a history of feuds with local officials, said in response she would sue the state Government Accountability Board for infringing on her freedom of speech.

“I’m not making a derogatory statement toward an ethnic group. I’m stating what I’m not,” Griffin told board members. “It’s my constitutional right to freedom of speech.”

Unlike candidates from the established Democratic and Republican parties, independents are allowed a five-word statement of purpose on the ballot to explain to voters what their candidacy is about.

The irony is, of course, that the document that guarantees her that “constitutional right to freedom of speech” was written by a group of white men.  You may have heard of some of them: James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, George Mason, Alexander Hamilton and George Washington.

To quote the inimitable Hermione Granger, “What.  An.  Idiot.”

Griffin deserves nothing less than a thorough shellacking in the election. Unfortunately, I have a bad feeling that she may win.  The election board who denied her this slogan by a razor-thin 3-2 margin appears to be as irony-deprived as the candidate.  But the publicity this has garnered could put her over the top.
