Stay classy Frank Luntz, stay classy.
Luntz spoke before GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum made an appearance at the annual Kent County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel. He joked a bit to warm up the room.
[…]“I actually have a ‘Run, Barack, Run,’ bumper-sticker but I put it on the front of my car,” he continued.
Look I got a pretty twisted and dark sense of humor. I am not some totally political correct person. I like off-color humor more than most. But these folks do realize there are African Americans alive today that had friends and family members lynched, murdered, and dare I say run down by cars.
I can also only guess they know Barack Obama is an African American.
I wouldn’t say the joke isn’t somewhat creative. And if it was told to me by somebody I knew wasn’t a racist I’d giggle a little. But I don’t see how you include it in the introductory remarks for a person that wants to be the President of the United States. These people, meaning Republicans, can’t even seem to open their mouths for a second and not insert both feet. It is actually mind-numbing at this point.
