    Anyone who supports this person's statement is also a biggot. He should be removed from office and not allowed to have his pension for the comments. This person is just like Rush, Chaney, Rove and the rest of them. BIGGEST SORE LOOSERS and BIGGOTS in the history of the USA!

    I am sick of these comments (all of them). We as Americans need
    to take a good look at self. These comments are not funny and CNN
    need not post them. The world is changing for those who dont want
    to change an turn the page. Keep living in the pass because the pass
    will keep you sickl

    Moron yes, representative of Republicans, no more than Jeremiah Wright is of Democrats. This is a small time hack in a small state who is called a "GOP activist". He's not an elected official, he' s a racist hick.

    Wow. At least the"Gorilla" has a brain unlike him. Honestly, what gives him the right to say such things...a man of his position and age. This just goes to show how many GOP racists there are, and i'm happy the people are seeing this. Its a shame they still cannot get over the fact Obama won, and a man of color is in the White House finally.

    These attacks on Obamas family need to stop. The GOP has been doing this since the campaigns were popular with Obama.

    Oh come on liberals, how about the Bush chimpanzee photos? How about the Palin bimbo slant employing hollowood actors to impersonate a candidate on national tv during an election race? Oh, I guess because she is black it is supposed to make it more offensive, it is all unacceptable and is all of the same level of ignorance and stupidity. Get over it, if you dish it out then get ready to lick the spoon, sometimes just being associated to the party gets mud all over ya!

    they are not the same. Letterman is a comedian and not elected. He isn't supposed to be representing anyone. Comedians talk about everyone in the lime light. And making a joke about a promiscious daughter is different than making a racial slur.

    And you wonder why people of color still say that racism is not dead? When you still have people at this level being openly racist, what does that tell the local kid from the neighborhood?

    Racism is not inherited, it's taught.
