    Racist e-mail aimed at Obama raises hackles in Tennessee

    Way to go, GOP. That's a real affective way to reach out to non-white folks. And you wonder why 95% of blacks vote for Democrats.

    The chairman of Tennessee's Democratic Party wants a Republican legislative aide fired for sending out a "reprehensible" e-mail depicting President Obama as two cartoonish white eyes peering from a black background.

    Obama's image is in the last square of a collage containing portraits of the previous 43 U.S. presidents. Copies of the e-mail were posted on the Internet on Monday.

    Sherri Goforth, an administrative assistant to state Sen. Diane Black, R-Gallatin, has admitted she sent the e-mail May 28 with the title "Historical Keepsake Photo." She said, without elaborating, that she mistakenly sent it "to the wrong list of people."

    Oh, that's the problem. It's not that she sent out the ignorant piece of trash; it's that it went to the wrong people. Here is the picture, by the way:

    I am not an Obama supporter. In fact, I disagree with almost everything he has done, but this is unconscienable. This woman should be fired immediately. This is not free speach, it is hate speach,and that has no place in our government. It would be different if she came out and said she didn't mean it to be racial or something of that kind. That would warrant an investigation. There is no place in the government of the United States for racist bigots like this woman.

    Yeah, because the Republican party officially asked her to send this out.

    I agree it's in bad taste but using this as a slam against the GOP isn't noteworthy.

    This is "hate speech"? It kind of points out something obvious...first black president, y'all. Fly in the buttermilk and all.

    God, we've lowered our threshold for hate speech if this qualifies. Stupid, yes. Hate? Please.

    Condi Rice the House Nigger was fine. Obama the eyes is hate speech. Remember folks, only the Right can be racist.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No the comment about Rice was despicable, too. There are bigots on both sides.

    Condi Rice was one of the people I most admired in the Bush white house. Trust me when I say I found any racist comments about her unacceptable.

    Not to defend this picture, but I am betting it was meant as a joke among friends that got sent to the public. Still makes her a terrible person, but not the fault of "republicans".

    Of course they didn't, but when a GOP staffer sends something out like that using their email what do you think people are going to think? This is the second incident in a week, by the way, from a staffer or prominent member of the Republican Party engaging in some type of racial slight towards the Obamas. The first incident was right here in South Carolina over the weekend.

    The point here is that this is why so many minorities get a bad impression of the Republican Party and Michael Steele has his hands full if he has a goal of trying to bring more non-whites to the show. For the record, I think the Democrats are just as bigoted; they've just done a much better job of pandering to minorities and hiding their prejudice.
