Gawker.com has lost most of its magic, but they can still come up with some interesting stuff. The latest is this post on "racists" voting for Obama, Trends: Racists For Obama. This picture is not doctored. That is a confederate flag and an Obama sign. To throw another wrench in it, this isn't even in the South. This is in Indiana, which is much the same thing. However, note that the American flag is above the Confederate symbol that is "not all racist" anyway, right?
The post picks up off of Politico.com's article on race and politics that talks about all these people who don't particularly like black folks, but are voting for Obama. My favorite is the douche bag who says he can tolerate voting for Obama because "he's not all black," and he also wants to vote for him so it will stop all those crybabies who still think discrimination exist.
As Paul Begala said, "“If you go to a white neighborhood in the suburbs and ask them, ‘How would you feel about a large black man kicking your door in,’ they would say, ‘That doesn’t sound good to me,’” said Democratic political consultant Paul Begala. “But if you say, 'Your house is on fire, and the firefighter happens to be black,' it’s a different situation.” Uhm... I don't think most people want anyone of any color kicking their door in.
