    You live kids alone, period. What's so hard about that? Pulling out that picture to invite ridicule? Not cool.  I don't care if the kid was directly "attacked" or not. There's NO other reason to pull that picture out if the kid isn't black...none. If it's just the rest of the (white) Romney family, it's not a segment. So why is it now?  Why is the Romney family picture featuring their black adopted child a subject AT ALL for people to joke about?  The segment came across as a bunch of smug, self-satisfied people taking shots at a bunch of rich people they don't like because of their black baby.

    MHP did the absolute right thing by apologising, unequivocally. With that said, no she shouldn't be fired, or suspended for it, and hopefully the right won't attempt some idiotic boycott of her ala Phil Robertson (whose comments were also idiotic, but at least he had the sense to not say them on his own show).

        Were this a photo of Sasha and Malia, say with a dozen or so white classmates from Sidwell Friends, and Sarah Palin Tweeted the pic w/the caption "What doesn't belong here", I wonder if the response around here would be so nuanced.  I wonder if we'd all be bending over backwards trying to reason as to why this is OK?

        Of course, you know the answer to that question, and so do I. Using kids this way...NEVER cool.
