If there were a list of commandments for politicians, we’re guessing “thou shalt not say things that sound racist when taken out of context” would be somewhere near the top.

But GOP presidential candidate and Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann apparently missed the memo, because after the group White People Funk Band — itself a regrettable name — played at one of her campaign rallies, she took the stage and asked the crowd, “Who likes White People?!”

Even her ardent supporters in the audience took a beat before half-heartedly cheering, probably because they were too busy face-palming from the knowledge of how bad Bachmann’s gaffe would sound when it hit the internet.
