Today’s Bigot: Al Sharpton

'We're barroom buddies & we're doin' fine, pour me another I got nothin' but time' - WonkettePortly pompadoured “shock jock” Al Sharpton said something provocative during a debate with Christopher Hitchens on Monday, causing much concern amongst those who pay attention to Al Sharpton. (Sharpton and Hitch are running against each other in the tightly contested campaign for “World’s Biggest Asshole.”)

Rev. Al said Mormon-Scientologist-Vulcan Mitt Romney would never be president due to the fact that Mormons don’t worship the “real” god: “As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don’t worry about that; that’s a temporary situation,” said Sharpton.

Asked why he was such a Mormon-hating bigot, Sharpton explained that he was really just saying that Romney looks like a fag.
