and you can see that he realized that after a minute or two, hence the instant deer-in-the-headlights look

im not a huge Michael Richards fan tryna defend him, i like the Seinfeld show but thats about as far as that goes
in fact, from what i have seen of his stand-up act - its not very good.
but regardless, i think the whole thing got blew out of proportion
and i'd be equally as offended as everyone else if i thought he had meant it or if thought he was in anyway a threat to anyone.
all i know is dude's career is over (which isn't exactly news anyway...)
stuff like this disproves that whole "no such thing as bad publicity" saying.
