Ok Ok. The point is made more eloquently than me in the final paragraph:

"That's the problem with Romney's "joke," too. It falls into a long list of remarks that suggest an emotional myopia based on an extremely sheltered life experience. It comes across as gloating about the fact that, as a rich white man born into a wealthy and powerful family, Romney has rarely been subject to the kind of racist or sexist assumptions that clog the daily lives of millions of Americans. Romney might as well joke that he's never been mistaken for a waiter in a restaurant or a clerk in a retail store, or that he's never been selected for extra screening at an airport or randomly told to empty his pockets by the NYPD. The reason Romney doesn't have to show the country his papers isn't because everyone knows he was born in Michigan. It's because whiteness remains unquestionably "American" for some people in a way blackness does not. That should not be a point of pride for Romney; it should be a matter of anger and disappointment."

Tig talks about this on the most recent Professor Blastoff http://www.professorblastoff.com/2012/08/65-free-for-alltig-update/.

I'd love to see this.  I just subscribed to Professor Blastoff a few months ago, but it's already one of my favorites.  It has very little structure, which can be a weakness of the show.  But, that's also the only way it could ever have moments that have me laughing so hard that it brings tears to my eyes.
