Give It a Rest

Well, it looks like a friend of Obama is in big trouble for saying something racist.

That friend?

Actor Robert De Niro.

What, he called someone a n----r?


He told a joke.

Not even a joke.

A quasi-joke.

The attempt-at-joke:

Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now, do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?

Lord God have mercy.

Have racial politics been so infected with venom that such an innocuous bit of  nonsense so inflames passions?

Will y'all stop?  This is beyond silly.

A second point worth making: Obama's wife - through her spokesperson - apologized for de Niro using such hate-filled words.

Another Obama apology.

It must be Wednesday.
