So White He's Almost Transparent

Wait! He is transparent...

Mr. Romney, the Republican candidate from Massachusetts by way of Michigan and Utah who enjoys a milkshake at the end of a long day, stopped by a staging area for a Martin Luther King Birthday parade here. In his dress shirt and tie, and with his unwavering smile, he walked over and posed for photographs with a group of black youngsters. Putting his arm around a teenage girl, he waved to the cameras and offered, "Who let the dogs out?" He added a tepid "woof woof." Somewhere, the Baha Men, the Bahamian group whose 2000 song the candidate was referencing, must have been shuddering. Kevin Madden, one of Mr. Romney’s campaign boyz on the bus, said the candidate had been joking around and had responded to someone who asked, "Who let you out?" Later, Mr. Romney admired a child’s gold necklace and said, "Oh, you’ve got some bling-bling here." - NY TIMES
Romney then tossed candy to all the black youngsters before whispering to an aid to get him outta there before somone shot at him. Okay, I made up that last part about getting shot. Seriously though, nice work, Mitt! Perhaps next time you'll learn gang signs or don blackface and dance a jig? Alabama is waiting.

I really should cut him some slack, Mormom Mitt ain't used to socializin' with no colored folk as the church didn't allow them in until recently. Understandably, Mitt's mostly accustomed to Mexicans and such.
