Hat tip: The Daily Dish
Well, this just about has it all, doesn't it?
Pitcher of Kool Aid
Now, I guess the donkey was easier to cut and paste than a monkey,but outside of that, pretty much every racist stereotype that one could imagine.
From the Press-Enterprise.com:
The October newsletter by the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps -- instead of dollar bills like other presidents. The statement is followed by an illustration of "Obama Bucks" -- a phony $10 bill featuring Obama's face on a donkey's body, labeled "United States Food Stamps."
The group's president, Diane Fedele, said she plans to send an apology letter to her members and to apologize at the club's meeting next week. She said she simply wanted to deride a comment Obama made over the summer about how as an African-American he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
"It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement. I really don't want to go into it any further," Fedele said in a telephone interview Tuesday. "I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn't my attempt."
In the article, it quotes a Sista that said she cried for 45 minutes. I hope it made her think twice about the company she's keeping.
