Classy: BET founder mimics Va. gov candidate's speech

BET co-founder and major Obama supporter, Sheila Johnson, resorted to mimicking a candidate's speech impediment at a campaign event. Strangely, she is supporting the Republican candidate in the Virginia governors race. Perhaps, she is worried about the socialist direction Obama and the Democrats are taking America. Sheila Johnson is America's first black female billionaire.

From AP via Google News:
RICHMOND, Va. — The billionaire co-founder of Black Entertainment Television apologized Monday for pretending to stutter at a campaign event as she mimicked the Democratic candidate for governor.

BET co-founder Sheila Johnson, for years a major donor to President Barack Obama, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine and other Democrats, stunned Virginia political observers in July by endorsing Republican Bob McDonnell in the governor's race.

He is running against Democrat Creigh Deeds to replace Kaine, who is barred by state law from running for a second straight term.
