It's okay because she has black friends....
Things that make you go... :wtf:

Recently, local magazine, OC Weekly has obtained a copy of an email circulating from conservative, Republican Tea Party activist, Marilyn Davenport. In this email, the words, Now you know why no birth certificate, are shown alongside a photo of the Obama family as apes.

Davenport insists, that this email is something different. Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few peoplemostly people I didnt think would be upset by it.

1. I dont get it
The premise of that picture is a racist joke. It cant be seen as anything else. I would simply like to see her asked why she sent the email and what she thought it meant.

6. Some repubs did good - they got the email & got pissed about it.
Story was on the local news last night. Repubs who got the email were angry with her. want her terminated from her gop position.

11. Every now and again
we get some insight into the tea-bagger mind.

And it's not pretty.

7. The teabaggers hate to be thought of as racist, yet they truly are.
Why can't they see it. Wonder what they think the word means?

10. In their feeble minds, anything short of cross-burnings and lynchings:
Doesn't really qualify as racism.
