From a reticent Politico:
"Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?" De Niro asked a star-studded crowd gathered in the backroom of Locanda Verde, a restaurant he owns on Greenwich Street in TriBeCa.What a tool. This man is a classic definition of a racist. The spin meisters are trying hard to slough it off as a 'joke.' Imagine if this standard of a 'joke' were applied to someone like Limbaugh or Gingrich. The Lefties would be messing their diaper with screams of outrage. Blatant racism is not a joke no matter the source.
Someone in the crowd shouted, "No!" as De Niro quickly added, "Too soon, right?"
Uh, oh. Lookey here. Even these guys recognize dog poo when it's stepped in: Obama campaign says DeNiro ‘white first lady’ joke ‘inappropriate.’
Rest assured only crickets will chirp on MSNBC.
