What's New, Sununu?

His former chief of staff, a white Republican, weighs in on Colin Powell’s Obama endorsement and delivers a twofer on racism, not only against his boss but the President as well.

Retired Col. Lawrence Wilkinson blasts: “My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that's despicable.”

Wilkerson, who had previously expressed regrets about not resigning over his role in helping prepare Powell’s 2003 U. N. speech on Iraq’s nuclear weapons, was delivering another whack, this one for Barack Obama, to the back side of Mitt Romney surrogate John Sununu as  he hastily retreats from his gaffe about the General’s endorsement.

It’s long past time for one of their own to call out the G.O.P. 's racism over Obama. Well done.
