Convention officials released this statement after "attendee[s] at the Republican National Convention in Tampa threw peanuts at a black female CNN camerawoman and shouted at her 'This is how we feed animals,' according to David Schuster of Take Action News":
Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated.
Not tolerated ... when there are cameras about. Otherwise "this kind" of behavior shall be legislated, codified and institutionalized in the GOP's revamped political system.
The first reader comment I came across in Daily Intel's coverage of this incident was all too suggestive of how shamefully "the base" was bound to react:
David Shuster + TalkingPointsMemo + CNN = mendacious garbage, always.
No one can change ignorance that profound. It quite literally has to die out, which, praise Jesus, is precisely what the GOP's most cherished demographics are doing.
