• Michelle Obama Gorilla Slur Won't Distract GOP from the Real Issues

    Today's demonstration of why Republicans + Internet = Fail comes via South Carolinan "activist" Rusty DePass, who simply had to share this hilarious witticism on Facebook…

    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."

    Get it??? Because Michelle Obama, who is black, believes in evolution! (No, seriously, that was DePass's pathetic excuse when he got caught.) Maybe what I mean is, Republicans + Words in Any Medium = Fail.

    And here is a member of South Carolina's GOP establishment, calling for some perspective on the whole flap…

    Eric Davis, the current chairman of the Richland County Republicans, said his predecessor should get a pass. "Everyone says stupid things they regret later. I think the world should move on," he said.

    Mm, yes. Especially since the rally to fire David Letterman starts tomorrow at 4:30 p.m.
