58. I care what Duke thinks. I care what Trump thinks. I care what Steve King thinks.

I 'care' what conservative racists think. Ignoring what they think, say and do is not the best way to deal with their form of hatred, IMHO. Confronting them is.

On the extremely rare occasions that I find myself in agreement with one of them on a particular issue, I take a big step back and re-examine my position. If it is a case of Duke (and other racists) and me reaching the same position but for diametrically opposed lines of reasoning, I can live with that. It wouldn't make me happy but I can live with it.

If my 're-examination' leads me to see something in myself that I am not proud of (it has happened; I am flawed and have grown a lot over the years), I live and learn and hopefully grow. Perhaps that is what happened in Ilyan Omar's case. Maybe Duke's tweet jolted her. Maybe Pelosi and other Dems just applied too much pressure for her to resist. In any event, her apology ended with a commitment to fight the influence of money in politics which would include, but not be limited to, AIPAC. I'll give her credit.
