Really Far Out There

We had a number of posts today on Marcus Epstein, the Tancredo and Buchanan staffer who had to plead guilty to a hate crime a couple years ago in Washington, DC. But TPM Reader BS just flagged this photo album on Marcus’s Facebook page about his trip to Ethiopia. You can start with this picture and work your way through. This one’s a special moment too.

The key is the captions.

After seeing these it’s awful shocking he ended up drunk in Georgetown, screaming racial epithets and attacking a black woman.
