If you're going to make racist jokes, they had better be really, really funny. Chip Saltsman, your shipment of FAIL has arrived.
Or has it? In a development that should be more surprising than it is, Republicans are rallying around this terminally un-funny douchetruck: “When I found out what this was about I had to ask, ‘Boy, what’s the big deal here?’" says Maine GOP chairman Mark Ellis. Who you calling "boy," Mark?
And Paul Reynolds of the Alabama Republican Committee thinks Saltsman "was doing everyone a favor... This is just people looking for something to make an issue of."
And Saltsman's old boss, Mike Huckabee, says "no one who knows him would ever suggest that he in any way would purposely disparage other people." Except he did.
It's not a cross burning, it's a cross lighting! Can't we all just get along?
