Republican Calls Michelle Obama A Gorilla Video | GOP Activist Comment Clearly Racist

The David Letterman and Sarah Palin row has brought into question not only the rights and wrongs of telling jokes directed at public figures, but also how these jokes can be used for political gain. And here we go again.

I actually defended David Letterman’s jokes about Sarah Palin and her daughter, but I’m not sure anyone could defend this so called “gag”. It comes from a South Carolina Republican activist by the name of Rusty DePass and is clearly racist, ignorant, and deeply offensive.

    I’m so tired of these cracka’s (DePass IS a cracka) saying this type of stuff, getting their rocks off as they make the rounds behind closed doors, shaking hands and laughing their asses off amongst their friends, before coming back a day or two later with some bullshit apology they don’t mean, then going back behind closed doors and laugh at the apology too!

    I’m going to write this son of a bitch and tell him about his K-9, dog-ass, bow-wow Mama and why she should have taught her son better!
