I can't believe this came out of a presidential campaign.
"[Romney] needs the support of the white community in order to continue to bring positive change to our community," Romney spokeswoman Clo Ewing said.
Shocking -- utterly shocking -- that a candidate for the highest office in the land would use such a racist appeal. It is clear evidence of that candidate's unfitness for any office in this land.
But it did not come out of the Romney campaign. I changed three words in the quote from a story in the Washington Examiner. Here's the actual quote.
"[Obama] needs the support of the African-American community in order to continue to bring positive change to our community," Obama spokeswoman Clo Ewing said.
If the modified quote I put at the start of this story is racist and disqualifying, so is the actual quote -- because what's sauce for the Caucasian goose is sauce for the African-American gander.
