Well, you were all wrong. In August, the Twitterverse started a hashtag game to find #DavidChaliansNextJob after the Yahoo! News bureau chief was fired for describing the Romneys as “happy to have a party when black people drown” — a reference to the close timing of the Republican National Convention and Hurricane Isaac making landfall.

Politico announced today that Chalian has joined the site as vice-president of video programming. “David screwed up, admitted he screwed up and paid the price of losing his job for screwing up,” explained Politico editor-in-chief John Harris.

Gwen Ifill and others rallied around Chalian after his remarks, and “real journalists” are happy to see the reporter back in business. After all, the New York Times considers him “one of the fairest.” Fairest? As in white? RACIST!!111

In June, Politico suspended Joe Williams, who tweeted a vulgar joke about Ann Romney and claimed Mitt Romney only feels comfortable around “white folks.”

    Politico as a liberal organization, is by it’s very nature a racist wing of the DNC, just as white liberals are the modern KKK.

    The portrait of Senator “Sheets” Byrd kinda gave that away…

    His turnaround time was a hell of a lot shorter than anyone I know who lost their job through no fault of their own.

    Democrats are the only people I know who celebrate failure,
    justify incompetence and reward ignorance.

    A Republican/conservative who said something like this wouldn’t work in media again for a very long time, if ever.

    Double-standard much?

    Politico couldn’t hire a woman to diversify their staff? Why does Politico hate women? Not one qualified female who hasn’t made a racially insensitive far-left extremist comment? What is up with Politico’s war on women?

    Birds of a feather………………

    Still trying to figure out why he thinks that ONLY black people drown as a result of hurricanes. Could it be because he thinks they are bad swimmers?
    Racist!!!11!!!
