The Parade of Republican Racist Images Continues

And speaking of the actions of despicable Republican types (see previous post) my friend Pam Spaulding at Pam's House Blend checks in with something equally hideous -- how about Barack Obama surrounded by fried chicken, ribs and watermelon?

Here's Pam:
The latest newsletter by an Inland Republican women's group depicts Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama surrounded by a watermelon, ribs and a bucket of fried chicken, prompting outrage in political circles.

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."
Visiting Pam's site is a good idea on any day but you're not going to believe this image until you see it, so please make a run over there now.
