A Curious Response
When a Georgia bar owner sells t-shirts that show Barack Obama as Curious George, the correct response isn't to pretend that you don't know why people are pissed or excuse it because people make fun of other politicians. The correct response is to denounce it as stupid and racist and be done with it.
For me, there are so many substantative things about Barack Obama to dislike - his naive approach to foreign policy, his huge spending initiatives and his basic elitism - that all this kind of attack does is distract from the very real issues that he's just plain wrong on.
This should be the GOP's Sister Souljah moment, not an invitation for the party to get back at Dems after eight years of Chimpy McBush.
