Great Moments In Republicans Being Totally Not Racist

Offended?  Why would anyone be offended?

Commenting on a report posted to Facebook about a gorilla escape at a zoo in Columbia, S.C., Friday, longtime GOP activist Rusty DePass wrote, “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors – probably harmless.”

Busted by South Carolina political blogger Will Folks, DePass told WIS-TV in Columbia, “I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest.”

Then he added, “The comment was hers, not mine,” claiming Michelle Obama made a recent remark about humans descending from apes. The Daily News could find no such comment.

As a New Yorker in exile, I also loved this quote from 2007:

“Most of us, of course, particularly in South Carolina, never gave a damn about New Yorkers, but somehow the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, made those people Americans again,” he wrote in a 2007 Op-Ed endorsing Giuliani.

I just love it when Republicans decide who the real “Americans” are.

    Most of us, of course, particularly north of the Mason-Dixon line, never gave a damn about South Carolinians that committed acts of treason against the United States and fired upon our flag, but somehow the actions of a man who said “with malice towards none, and charity to all,” made those people Americans again

    So this “apology” is just going to get him a pass? The “I was just joking” and “if anyone was offended” crap?

    Wow.

    “I’m sorry you don’t have a sense of humor.”
