    She's OK, but she does kinda look like what happens when the circumcision cuts too much off.

    Re: Racist e-mail aimed at Obama raises hackles in Tennessee

    I think the cartoon was funny (in poor taste) but funny anyway. Racist? I just don't see it. I make fun of peoples races all the time, not because I am racist, but because race is just not important. People add way to much importance to race (like we had anything to do with what race we are. ) So I make fun of it.

    I know others make racist comments because they are racist, so what? Sticks and stones.

    Now as for the blaming the GOP, please. This was one staffer who passed around a fairly typical kind of work joke email. Was not the first one, will not be the last. Those calling for this person to be fired in my opinion really need to get a life or lighten up.

    After 8 years of seeing President Bush portrayed as a monkey named Chimpy I can't get too upset about this.

    Excellent post.

    I make jokes about race ALL the time. People are too touchy about the subject.

    Why not just respond with a picture like this:

    Presidents of the United States of America

    Yeah, but who was fired?

    God, we've lowered our threshold for hate speech if this qualifies. Stupid, yes. Hate? Please.
    Correction, Obama is the second black president. Bubba was the first.

    I hope you are right about that, but the problem as I see it from a historical perspective is that the Democrat party was started to hinder the end of segregation and to the civil rights movement, many voters in the party have changed and vote for their own reasons and perceptions, but I get the feeling that the old guard of the party still harbors the original sentiment, not to excuse any idiocy from the other side obviously, a stupid statement should be scorned, I just think it's a shame that one side gets a mulligan or otherwise the statement is forgotten while the other side gets slammed.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    You did it first is not a very good counter point to what this person did. However, it is a good counter point to roll your eyes and give the opinions of people who are utter hypocrites on the issue as much credance as a pile of dung. Too often on the left and the right people only get up in arms and demand action is taken when its THEIR side that is getting targetted or the OTHER side doing wrong.

    I think it was mildly amusing, stupid to pass around from a person employed in any way by the GOP, and not even the best one of those types i've seen. My personal favorite...
