Yet more embarrassment from the Republican party. Why do they even bother hiring these people in the first place? I appreciate the fact that certain Republicans are finally standing up to this nonsense.
According to the L.A. Times :
“A Republican women’s club in San Bernardino County sent out a recent newsletter with a photo of Barack Obama surrounded by fried chicken, watermelon and ribs, sparking widespread outrage and rebuke from GOP leaders and Democrats.”
Her excuses :
“I apologize to anyone who was offended because that was not my intent”
It was just food to me. It didn’t mean anything else.
… According to Press Enterprise.
a) You have to be a blithering idiot to not realise the specific foods mentioned have intimate ties to racism in American culture.
b) You have to be a blithering idiot to pull this stunt when your own party is desperately trying to win the hearts and minds of minorities (some of whom are present in your own organization).
c) You are a blithering idiot… And a bigot. Which is the worst kind out there, since you don’t even seem to realise what it is you’ve done.
Of course the Obama folks have their own nasty attacks at Palin… But my God!
