There's a moment in Michael Richards' apology on Dave's show that you just gotta see. Richards, who went on an unbelievable racial tirade (and it was all caught on a tape exclusively obtained by TMZ), said "I'm not a racist. That's what's so insane about this."

Richards said his diatribe was the result of "free association," adding, "It fired out of me."
