Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge

Mitt Romney talked today about "hanging" something around President Obama's neck. From the linked Boston Globe article:

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Expected Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney tread on dangerous ground tonight as he talked about "hanging" a misery index around the neck of Barack Obama, the nation's first black president.

Romney almost immediately caught himself, with the English major declaring "metaphorically" speaking, but the mix of nervous laughter with applause indicated at least some in the audience realized its potency.

I'm sorry... there's not a chance in Hell that this was accidental on Romney's part. This was a message to the most racist among the Republan base. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. Absolutely, totally morally deplorable.


  1. Unbelievable, the development of this tide of racism. It bodes ill for our former democracy. Sad, disgusting,and tragic for us all.

  2. Agreed, mandt. What has the Republan Party come to, that its members must be wooed by cracking tasteless, cruel racist jokes. Perhaps I should not be surprised. But I am; I am taken aback by each new offense.
