It might just be that the RLC did not want to give Democrats any reason to complain that the group is tinged with racism. As comedian Jon Stewart pointed out during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” that’s a charge with which conservatives are often battered, fairly or not.

“People on the right are called ‘racist’ and other things with an ease I am uncomfortable with.... That’s something I think they have a real right to be angry about,” said the Comedy Central star during an otherwise combative interview with Fox host Chris Wallace.

On the other hand, as Brown himself admits, he’d rambled on for about 15 minutes – and he had just gotten into a portion of his performance that was pretty tough on Republicans.

He’d made a joke about Mitt Romney possibly having multiple First Ladies, due to his Mormon faith. He’d said Tim Pawlenty was off having his foot removed from his mouth, but not to worry – it was covered under “ObamneyCare.” As to Congresswoman Bachmann, the Obama impersonator said ... well, we don’t know, because at that moment a smiling gent appeared on stage and whisked him away.

However, after looking at all the evidence available to this point, we do have this to ask of the conference organizers: What were they thinking when they booked this guy?
