I Don't Really Understand This DeNiro Thing

Come on.

Actor Robert De Niro thrilled the crowd at a New York fundraiser headlined by first lady Michelle Obama when he listed the alternatives.

“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” De Niro asked a star-studded crowd gathered in the backroom of Locanda Verde, a restaurant he owns on Greenwich Street in TriBeCa.

Someone in the crowd shouted, “No!” as De Niro quickly added, “Too soon, right?”

Look, four years ago the stupid racist media (worried about the nation's racism, but constantly indulging in racism itself) kept asking "Is the nation ready for a black first lady?"

All DeNiro did was reverse that, absurdly, highlighting the change in the last four years.

Did he really think the nation isn't ready for a white first lady? Of course not. It's a joke.

I know the whole thing that we have to Make Them Live Up To Their Rule-Book but this one is just so so silly.

Eh, get behind it if you like. It probably cannot hurt to match their Fake Ginned-Up Outrage with some of our own Fake Ginned-Up Outrage. This is a retarded thing we're forced into, but the media insists on this retardation, and I guess we have to play by their retarded rules.

But we've got this Hanks dealio here. I don't want to step on that. Because that's sweet, sweet racism right there.
