Tom Hanks Does Blackface

Tom Hanks, who just produced a 17-minute video wet kiss for the Obama campaign, may have some explaining to do:
 Forrest Gump meets the Jazz Singer  -- Tom Hanks has some explaining to do. TheDC's David Martosko reports:

"Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Hollywood screen legend Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey at a 2004 fundraising auction, playfully interacting with a white man dressed as an African native, complete with blackface makeup and a giant Afro wig ... The video shows Montgomery in blackface, holding the stuffed animal and standing with Hanks, while Frey is heard saying into his microphone: 'This is as close to diversity as we'll get at St. Matthew's.'"

This would destroy a Republican star's career -- at the very least they would have to profusely apologize and do a stint in rehab. Will the establishment media even note it with a liberal star? We shall see.
Of course, Hanks got his big break in TV by dressing as a woman, so maybe this isn't that much of a surprise.

The left gets to play by different rules, but there's a new effort on to expose the hypocrisy until we force them to play by the same standards they hold conservatives.
