This coming from the person who find white chicks dating black guys revolting.

It wouldn't have been OK had it been reversed. It would have been an equally moronic thing to say.

Taken as a whole, not as offensive as I thought but still offensive if you want to nitpick (which occurs 100% of the time if you are referring to black people). He should have known better, and was deservedly fired.

It was moronic either way, but he wouldn't have been fired if it were the other way.

No, it wouldn't have been okay. It just wouldn't have generated nearly as much outrage.

It's fine to say lazy people vote Democratic. It's not fine to say lazy black people vote Democratic. See the difference?

That's what I'm getting at. It's not ok either way but the reaction is different.

All done to make sure that 1 or 2 don't commit voter fraud...let's see how many lazy people will get IDs to vote.

You know we can hear you, right?

That was really a brilliant segment...if you guys haven't seen it you have it. It's a beautiful thing.

Oh...btw, the guy who said all this, also said, "I have a black friend." I think he knew he was stupid at that point.

See the interview, guys...then come back and talk about how he wasn't racist.

The problem with the GOP is that they only talk to each other and that interview proves it.

And decent people in the GOP are too scared to hold the crazies accountable.

Not a problem at all. I think it's great when GOP does stupid crap...banning CNN and MSNBC from convention...finding Sarah Palin...shutting down the gov't. I love it. It's great!

So what? Why do you have to qualify it on the scale of shitty things to say? That doesn't change the fact that he said something shitty and he deserved to get shitcanned for it.

Or are you saying he doesn't deserve to lose his job over those remarks?
