Mitt Romney Encounters Black Voters, Asks "Who Let the Dogs Out?" [VIDEO]

Mitt Romney was in da Ville on Monday, kickin' it on ML King Day:


In his dress shirt and tie, and with his unwavering smile, he walked over and posed for photographs with a group of black youngsters. Putting his arm around a teenage girl, he waved to the cameras and offered, "Who let the dogs out?" He added a tepid "woof woof."
Somewhere, the Baha Men, the Bahamian group whose 2000 song the candidate was referencing, must have been shuddering...
Later, Mr. Romney admired a child's gold necklace and said, "Oh, you've got some bling-bling here."
To their credit, none of the young people got up in Romney's grill for acting such a fool
