This is about as low as it gets in politics.
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Yahoo News fired its Washington bureau chief on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after he was caught on an open microphone saying that Mitt Romney and his wife, at the Republican convention in Florida while a hurricane was approaching Louisiana, were “happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
Company spokeswoman Anne Espiritu said Wednesday that David Chalian’s remark was inappropriate and does not represent Yahoo’s views. (Source)
There’s only so much stupidity that even the lefties can tolerate before they feel embarrassed. Good on Yahoo for firing him and not making excuses for him.
