When Laughter Hurts

I don't know about you, but I'm offended by this interchange that occurred between one Whitehouse beat reporter and Tony the Snow job, W's presidential spokes model.

This Q & A closed Thursday’s briefing. Have a look and tell me what you think:
Q Is this nation ready for a black or female President, be it Democrat or Republican?

MR. SNOW: Of course. (Laughter.)
It's the laughter that screws with my inner psyche. True, sarcasm is hard to read in textual form, but sarcasm is never funny if there is no truth buried in the joke. Beneath the veneer, there is nothing but pure racism.
