From Drain Cleaner to Cake … It’s All “Racist”
While the DOJ's top gun AG Eric Holder vehemently opposes voter IDs as racist, I don't see him jumping on the state of Illinois for their new state law requiring customers to show photo identification before purchasing ... drain cleaner. I'm guessing minorities don't buy Liquid Plumber??
There's a new tell-all book coming out that makes the Czarina of Food, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, look kinda sorta not so nice. Also, allegedly, after the 2008 election win, she wanted to postpone the move to the White House and hang out at the Obama home pal Tony Rezko helped purchase. However, in the last three years she hasn't seemed to make the Chicago digs a vacation destination. I think I recall maybe one time the Obama's have been back there?
Your Excellency: And speaking of the jet-setting FLOTUS ... Given her proclivity for taking luxurious holidays on our dime while the rest of the nation is struggling with the household budget, and going without family vacations for another year in a row, a depiction of her as the spoiled selfish Queen of France who mythically stated "Let them eat cake" really doesn't seem all that nasty, as political cartoons go (and the buff arm has to be a jab at the MSM's obsession with Mrs. Obama's 'toned' and typically bare arms)...
The photoshop is not new (and I have seen others, of Obama as well), but an LA Times blogger has taken exception, and somehow sees something the majority of people looking at the depiction do not ... racism. However, the LAT blogger apparently had no problems with his own paper's political cartoonist taking an obviously blatant racist stab at then Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Not to worry, however, I believe Mrs. Obama will be able to jet back to that pricey house in Chicago around this time next year ... for good.
And an interesting extra ... Ace of Spades HQ has a round-up you might find entertaining: Lefties Wet Their Pants Thinking about Post-Obama America
