hard to make this stuff up

Especially when it's true. Here's an article about an official GOP flier that went out in the October newsletter to members of a Republican women's group in Riverside County, California. Take a look at the image a ten dollar food stamp bill bearing a caricature of Obama in a donkey suit, surrounded by watermelon, ribs, and fried chicken...unbelievable.
Did you ever wonder why you see so few black faces in the crowds at GOP events? Some black members of this same GOP group are feeling betrayed.

Sheila Raines, an African-American member of the club, was the first person to complain to Fedele about the newsletter. Raines, of San Bernardino, said she has worked hard to try to convince other minorities to join the Republican Party and now she feels betrayed.

"This is what keeps African-Americans from joining the Republican Party," she said. "I'm really hurt. I cried for 45 minutes."

Unbelievable. This is what it always comes down to with the Republicans.
