Prominent Florida Doctor Latest Racist Idiot Caught Making Obama Jokes Online
It's really sad there are so many high-profile Republicans out there sending out racist jokes about our president on their email that I've kind of gotten sick of reading them. It's just depressing. So, I've seen this picture about a million times today online and finally decided to break down and read the details. Turns out it's some idiot from Florida!
Asked about the email in a brief phone interview with TPMmuckraker, McKalip said he believes that by depicting the president as an African witch doctor, the "artist" who created the image "was expressing concerns that the health-care proposals [made by President Obama] would make the quality of medical care worse in our country."McKalip said he didn't know who created it.
But pressed on what was funny about an image that plays on racist stereotypes about Africans, McKalip declined to say, instead offering to talk about why he opposes Obama's health-care proposals."I have a busy day," he said eventually, before ending the call.
Does Obamacare cover Prozac? I might need some after reading that.
