    TYRRELL: Cain blows up liberal creed on race

    As an observer on the national scene lo these many years, I have noted time and again that in a discussion of politics, the first person to inject the topic of race into the discussion is often the racist.

Those who have followed the careers of the Rev. Jesse Jackson and his Holiness Al Sharpton will get my drift. These frauds would have to be debating George Wallace to be the lesser racists and, frankly, I think the contests would be too close to call.
