Why I am Upset with Feministing

During last night's Presidential debate in Denver, I was live tweeting and reading the tweets of others over on Twitter. I follow feminist blog Feministing and was enjoying their commentary until they posted this:
I'm shocked and appalled that a respected feminist organization like Feministing made such a sexist and racist comment. As you can see from the picture I responded to them, expressing that shock, and as of yet have not heard a response from them. The tweet in question has since been deleted, but Feministing made no mention of it nor did they offer an apology. 

I'm sure I'm not the only one who saw the tweet, and I think Feministing owes their readers an explanation.
