1. Hanks apparently apologized for it

I'm sure it wasn't something he advocated, but I think both sides are looking to throw feces wherever they can. I like Mahers statement I read on SLate.

2. Yes...the Republicans are looking out for the black community, doncha know?

Do they actually think going after Robert Deniro and Tom Hanks will take them to victory in 2012?

Totally clueless. They're trying to throw everything they can to see what sticks.

3. Not one of his kids

 

Hanks was emcee at an auction...and a man in an afro wig, gorilla costume, and blackface appears on stage. His name is James Montgomery. Hanks didn't have much to do with it, other than witnessing it.

4. Their desperation is showing.

What we're seeing is a party which knows they don't have a winning candidate. Unless something major takes place they're toast in November. They have nothing truly wounding enough to do any real damage to the Obama campaign. All they can do at this point is paper cuts, like this one.
