As Twitchy reported earlier today, Rodney King was found dead Sunday morning at the bottom of a swimming pool. Liberal Twitter users wasted no time in using King’s death to score political points against Republicans:

You know what's sad? Pres. Obama won't be able to comment on death of Rodney King bc GOP will call him divisive. #nerdland

What those cops did to Rodney King? Very similar to what Rush Limbaugh and the right does to President Obama daily. Roll tape.

Sad news Rodney King dead at age 47, sadder news more racist jokes from the Tea Party are sure to come.

I bet Mitt Romney could alienate all minority voters simultaneously if someone just asked him what he thought of Rodney King.

I Remember when Rodney King was beat and jailed. I remember the GOP defending the right to do so. The SOBs haven't changed one bit.

Apparently this is the new post-racial age President Obama ushered in. Keep it classy, liberals.
