Yahoo News Chief: GOP happy “with black people drowning”

As Hurricane Isaac approached New Orleans Yahoo News Washington Bureau Chief David Chalian was caught on an open microphone saying of the Republicans, “They’re not concerned at all. They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”

In other news of political derangement, two GOP delegates were kicked out of the Tampa convention for throwing peanuts at a black CNN camerawoman, saying This how we feed animals”.

This type of hyper-partisan political insanity is precisely what is wrong with what passes for political discourse now. And the presidential campaigns are just now getting started in earnest. WTF is wrong with this country?
