what do you think about the SC Republican operative gorilla remark about Michelle Obama?

He is not a comedian making a joke or a celebrity being stupid. He is a politician and obviously a very racist one at that.

  • ok....so if you have the right moniker (comedian, entertainer ect...) then these types of comments are ok? You have carte blanche to say whatever you want? NO. That's stupid! I haven't heard the comments. Don't care. If it was ok for Letterman to make sexual comments about a young woman then anything goes........

  • WOW! If it happens like they say it did then there was absolutely no excuse for that type of comment. Sounds like he tried to downplay it w/ another excuse about Michelle saying something about evolution, but he should have known better. That was wrong. Just plain wrong.

  • I don't do the youtube thing but I am going to guess it was a not very nice remark. We seem to have a double standard here. Don Imus made a racial remark about the women's basketball team out of Rutger's and his life became a living hell. Jamie Foxx made a remark about Miley Cyrus, smiled apologized and has a life of joy and peace. David Letterman makes a remark about the Palins and it is okay. Now, its about Michelle Obama and is it okay?????? No, not in my opinion. None of them are okay. If one person is held accountable then shouldn't all of them be held to the same standards? Hello, Al Sharpton, where are you??????

  • Hey now, don't hate on MT. I grew up there and didn't know of racists. We didn't have a lot of black people there though. But the one's I knew were well liked and popular at school.
