Columbia's Rusty DePass, a well-known Republican activist in the state, is getting the Nth degree after he said that a gorilla that recently escaped from the local zoo was "just one of Michelle's ancestors--probably harmless."
And where did he feel safe enough to make such a poor-taste joke? Facebook.
I'm not sure what's worse: The comment or posting such a remark for all to see.
