Holy crap, this guy is a world class a-hole. Via tonight’s Countdown:
Canyon County Commissioner Steve Rule is coming under fire for circulating an e-mail that compares Michelle Obama’s election-night dress to a black widow spider. [...] Featuring boldface and underlines for emphasis, the e-mail reads, in part: “The female has a very wide backside, is Black, and has a red hour glass shaped marking on her belly You can find this spider in: Closets, Wood piles, Under Beds And soonTHE WHITE HOUSE!!!!”
You’ll never guess what Rule’s excuse was.
Rule says he didn’t see it as racist…
Wide backside? Black? Wood pile, Mr. Rule?
