Conservative + South =

You bet, more racism about President Obama. This time from an aide to Tennessee State Sen. Diane Black. Republican of course.

This is not to be confused with the guy from a couple days ago who compared Michelle Obama to a gorilla. Or the conservative mayor who sent around a picture of the White House and watermelons. Or the guy who sold t-shirts comparing Barack Obama to a monkey.*

Those were all separate incidents, and if one were to point out that the right has apparently ramped up its reflexive racism in the wake of President Obama's election... well that would just be mean.

* UPDATE: Also that guy who made a racist remark on Twitter. But not a part. No sireee. Not at all. Look over there, a pony. A BLACK pony.
