I bought eight tickets. Most are spoken for. How often does Morrissey play the Surf Ballroom? Never but once.

We’re excited.

Mitt Romney campaign’s new pitch: He’s white!

Jul 25, 2012 in Racism

After too long saying, “I know you are but what am I?” to anybody pointing out that Republicans have frequently behaved in horribly racist ways since President Obama first ran for president, the enabling has reached its culmination. At least I hope it doesn’t get worse than this:

“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have”.

What is there to say? Except too many will not say, because it just seems so improbable that a campaign official would be that openly racist, surely there must be some excuse! But shouldn’t we wait to hear what that excuse is from Mitt, instead of making it for him?

What’s up, Mitt? Do you stand by your advisor’s blatantly racist attack on President Obama?


UPDATE: Romney spokesman denies any agreement with advisor, which is to be expected, I suppose. We can afford it the standard weight any Romney camp denial warrants. Can we find out more about who this advisor was, Mitt? Nobody buys that you don’t know who it was.
