    Let's be fair: there were only two of them, and "CNN reported that multiple witnesses saw it happen, and police immediately removed the two people from the premises."

    Hell, there are ten thousand reasons not to vote GOP - but a few idiots misbehaving isn't one of them. I'm certain there will be no incidents at the Democratic convention. Not.

    I'd say it's disturbing, not shocking. I'm never shocked by badly behaved republicans. They typically are the party of bigots.

    From the article:
    "The incident would be ugly anywhere, but it is especially troubling for a party whose nominee attracted 0 percent of the black vote in a recent NBC poll."

    But it got 100% of the racist white vote...including racist gay Republicans.

    Of course they did.

    This is how Republicans think of black people. No news here.

    If it had just been a gathering of Repubs - with no cameras around - I doubt that the two racists would've been called out and ejected.

    These two racists are not just a couple of bad eggs.
    They exhibited the belief and mindset of a huge chunk of the Repub party.

    Considering the disgustingly racist campaign that Romney is running - the public posturing we've seen from the Repubs in the aftermath of this ugly occurrence is the height of hypocrisy.
