“My party is full of racists.”

In the aftermath of Mitt Romney campaign spokeman John Sununu’s unfortunate moment of frankness — where he suggested that former George Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell had endorsed Barack Obama because they are both black — a suggestion Sununu was quickly prodded to backpedal away from by key members of the GOP — General Powell’s chief of staff at the State Department, former military man, Ret. Col. Lawrence Wilkerson — who is white and Republican — had a mouthful to say in a brief interview on MSNBC. The Wilkerson interview begins about 2 min. 40 seconds into the clip, after typical partisan bloviation from the MSNBC host. ┬áDo yourself a favor and cut to the chase.
