Maine's GOP Chair Now Says He's Not Racist Because He Plays Basketball with a Black Guy

Thereís nothing about me that would be discriminatory. I know black people. I play basketball every Sunday with a black guy. Heís a great friend of mine. Nobody would ever accuse me of suggesting anything .... What I do suggest is that same-day voter registration without voter ID is pretty hard to police, and itís odd that hundreds of people in a small town would show up.

6. "I know black people! But c'mon! I don't expect them to vote! I play basketball with them!

We eat fried chicken and watermelon together! We don't vote together! I'm not even sure that would be legal! Gimme a break!"

9. Is he an actual friend of Romney's?

Because they both have the same style. The more they say, the worse they seem. Gaffe after gaffe after gaffe, and explanations just make it worse.

12. AAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaHAHAHAHahahahaha!

Of course he knows black people. That's because "they count their negroes." I imagine they take turns keeping an eye on them too. The Chair's days are on Tuesdays at 7:15 pm on the basketball court.

13. I used to play basketball with Charlie.

In the town rec league. He was always good for a punch to the kidneys when I went for a rebound, or a quick slap on my wrist while shooting. He would never call his own fouls, either (no refs). I hated seeing him walk onto the court - slow, short, and obnoxious - no game at all without cheating.
