SOUTH CAROLINA – Republican presidential hopeful and huge douchebag, Mitt Romney, was campaigning in South Carolina on Monday at a Martin Luther King, Jr. parade. He tooled around in his Mitt Mobile before the start of the parade. He took pictures with many in the crowd, mostly African Americans, and greeted one baby wearing a necklace saying, “Hey buddy! How’s it going? What’s happening? You got some bling bling here!” At one point, Romney – who has clearly never encountered a black person up close before – jumped off the Mitt Mobile to greet a waiting crowd and take a picture with some black youth, at which point he awkwardly quipped, “Who let the dogs out? Who? Who?”
