A Kansas tea party group is saying “pee-eww” to President Obama.
Patriot Freedom Alliance, a tea party group in Hutchinson, Kansas, made a statement on its website recently, depicting Obama as a skunk.
“It is half black, half white, and almost everything it does, stinks,” the site reads, according to a screen grab posted by The Hutchinson News. The skunk depiction has been replaced with an abridged biography of Newt Gingrich.
The group’s webmaster, Thomas Hymer, told the The Hutchinson News the statement was just political satire, saying Sarah Palin has been subjected to worse attacks. But Hutchinson chapter NAACP president Darrell Pope suggests the message carries racial overtones.
Of course, this isn’t the first race-titnted gibe at Obama. Over the Summer, Rush Limbaugh suggested a new chocolate-vanilla Oreo cookie should be rebranded the “Obameo.”
