Republican quits after racial slur about Obama

I just don't know what to say about this. This was an ignorant statement to be sure, especially what he said about Dr. King. These were some very controversial statements to be sure:
The leader of a statewide group of college Republicans has been forced to quit after posting racial comments about Barack Obama on the Net.

Adam LaDuca, 21, wrote on his Facebook page that Obama has ''a pair of lips so large he could float half of Cuba to the shores of Miami (and probably would.)''

LaDuca, who previously had called Martin Luther King Jr. a ''fraud,'' also wrote: ''And man, if sayin' someone has large lips is a racial slur, then we're ALL in trouble.''

The College Republicans asked LaDuca to resign after his remarks were publicized by a liberal blog.
You know it seems Republicans have to watch themselves more than a Democrat. Not sure if it's fair, but it certainly doesn't pay to make such a statement if the spotlight is going to be placed onto you. Fair or unfair.
