In what appears to be a preemptive strike against another Romney debate win, leftists on Twitter have already found a new excuse to say it doesn’t matter. The audience is too white.
This crowd is WHIIIITE

Lots of white people in the audience. Is this a Neil Diamond concert? #HofstraDebate #HofDebate

So, now we have to cherry pick debate audiences? In reality, there actually are minorities in the audience, but shouldn’t we care more about the people on stage than the people in the seats?
Michael Moore, as usual, took the crazy to a new level by suggesting that Long Island is demographically unfit to host a debate:
By limiting this audience of questioners 2 only “undecided voters from LongIsland/NY”, u can see on ur TV that we’re in 4 a very white night

Well, at least the good people of Long Island can now be rest assured that Michael Moore won’t be showing his face there any time soon. So, at least some good came of his insults.
