RLC gave the hook to Obama impersonator

Officials at last weekend's Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans intervened and escorted a Barack Obama impersonator off the stage after he made "racially tinged jokes about Obama and mocked some of the Republican presidential candidates," USA Today reported. RLC president and CEO Charlie Davis said of the comedian: "He was funny the first 10 or 15 minutes, but it was inappropriate, it was getting ridiculous."
