“Arabs Stick Out There”

This story about Mitt Romney, courtesy of Robert Reich, is pretty disturbing:

I’ve known Mitt Romney for several years. After he won the Massachusetts gubernatorial election in 2002, he was gracious enough to invite me and my wife to dinner (I had run in the Democratic primary). I congratulated him not only on winning the election but also on doing a good job on the Salt Lake City Olympics. He told me it was easy to avoid terrorists in Salt Lake City because “Arabs stick out there.” Gulp.

Gulp indeed. I’d always assumed Romney to be a bit of a racist, but this is surprisingly blatant.
