Where do they find these people? Do they have to breed them, or do they spontaneously rise up out of the muck?

Something calling itself Webutante wrote a blogpost about Barack Obama which featured a photoshopped picture of Obama wearing KKK garb. When she was asked in comments what the point of the picture was, Webutante responded
Greg, Mr. Obama obviously put on that ridiculous garb as a spoof, and I picked the photo as a spoof because it reminded me of "The Man from Glad."

You can certainly make of it something much more sinister and politically incorrect, but that's not why I used it. Where's your sense of humor? Oh, we're not supposed to have a sense of humor anymore, are we?

Buck up.
When further commentors pointed out that the photo had clearly been doctored, Webutante bravely responded, "If you have to ask what the joke wouldn't understand if I told you.

But thanks for your earnest input. It's time to move on now."

Yes, let's just pretend that either we knew all along that the photo had been doctored and it was irrelevant or that the photo is legit and Barack Obama really does have shoulders that are only three inches wider than his head. This creature will do well among the wingnuts.

Obama really brings the sickos out from under their rocks. It's going to be a long, ugly campaign.

By the way, she's now pulled the photo--not because it was disgusting but because liberal whiners' reaction to it was detracting from the message of her post (but even now it's gone I have no idea what the fuck she was trying to say). What a gutless wonder.
