Regular readers of this site will remember Erich "Mancow" Muller, the Chicago disc jockey who caused a furor back in May when he claimed to have a change of political heart after undergoing "waterboarding" live on his radio show. That story unraveled pretty quickly, as we discussed here.
Now Mancow, possibly feeling lonely and underappreciated after his brush with national fame, has unloaded on our Commander in Chief:
...our Kenyan-Muslim president who's destroying this country, you know, seriously, you can polish a turd, you can polish a turd, it's still a turd.Whether Mr. Muller intended his comments to have a racial undertone, it's pretty certain plenty of listeners are going to take them that way.
Mancow got busted by columnist Eric Zorn at the Chicago Tribune. You can listen to a recording of the comments or (if you must) download an mp3 here.
