Every year, Tom Toless Halloween party draws an eclectic mix journalists and political types from Washingtons power elite, but also artists and musicians, everyone from retirees to college kids, jammed into small rooms and sprawled across the backyard, dancing and gossiping, checking out the crowd to see who has the most inventive and outrageous costumes.
At the 2018 party at the home of The Washington Posts editorial cartoonist, in addition to several Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, someone dressed as the Mueller Witch Hunt and Post columnist Dana Milbank came as just-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, complete with a beer-dispensing device on his head. A guest named Lexie Gruber wore a scary Beetlejuice get-up and called herself dead.
A middle-aged white woman named Sue Schafer wore a conservative business suit and a name tag that said, Hello, My Name is Megyn Kelly. Her face was almost entirely blackened with makeup. Kelly, then an NBC morning show host, had just that week caused a stir by defending the use of blackface by white people: When I was a kid, that was okay, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character. ...

Sounds good to me. Don’t care.
The liberals have started eating their own. And the esteemed Washington Post things its newsworthy to post the details of a halloween party that happened two years ago. Its a golden age friends....
Use Alinsky: “Make them play by their own rules.”
Alinsky’s rules do work.

Unbelievable! Toles should have told her to go pound sand. But someone at the party would have talked. The woman lost her job... yes she is probably a leftie idiot, but she doesn't deserve that. And shame on her company for firing her. Seems like a lawsuit is in order.
You think for one minute she would defend you? She absolutely deserved it. No quarter for hypocrites.
Today the Left is firing their own. Once they consolidate their power, they will be shooting those who used to be their own.
Ah, the problems of the lefties. Who’s the purist lefty of them all?
Has anyone noticed or mentioned that the majority of these blackface incidents are RATs and leftists?
Gruber said that she and Prince were among only a handful of people of color at the party, and that most of the guests were considerably older. Lyric and I felt very out of place, she said.
by the way, Gruber looks more pale than this cracker-@zzed white boy...
None of them think they’ll be the first ones marched up to the wall after they achieve their revolution. Until it happens.
She can still get elected Governor of Virginia.
