From CNN, the story of a Bush staffer, a costume party, some beer and a dude in blackface. Her racial gaffe would have been secret if she hadn’t taken a picture, smiling, with the blackface guy. Oh, the fun people have being bigoted when there are no pesky Negroes around!
Sigh. There was a time when you could just crack a n@%ger joke while smoking a Cuban cigar in the middle of a Woolworth’s and folks would laugh and pat you on the back at your hipness. At least she can say, “Hey I was a racist in public long after being a racist in public wasn’t cool.”
