UPDATE II: A new email, a new low. From an email titled A mother's love:"A little boy said to his mother , "Mommy, how come I'm black and you're white?"
His mother replied, "Don't even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you're lucky you don't bark!""
First nude pictures, now this!
Republi-cons need counseling. I am serious, their hatred for Democrats has warped their judgment (and their intelligence).
UPDATE: Snopes.com lists the claim as undermined. However, WikiAnswers.com reports that the "photos are misleadingly attributed to Ann Dunhum."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: I have not included the photo of Stanley Ann Dunham. Are they relevant to the discussion? If you think that the photos are relevant, I will post edited copies only.]
The term "McCarthyism" was coined in 1950s in reference to Senator Joseph McCarthy, a Republican from the state of Wisconsin, who engaged in demagogic, reckless, and unsubstantiated accusations, as well as public attacks, on the character or patriotism of political opponents.
I am reminded of the term after receiving the following email:
"Is Barack Obama's Momma In Nude Porn Pictures?
Some photos have been making their rounds on the internet that claim to be nude shots of Barack Obama's mom. Those photos are attached.
One photo is of the Obama family. Look closely at is his mom so you can compare her face to the face in the porn photos.
It's amazing what can be done these days with PhotoShop. So these may very well be fakes. But the sites I have been to to research this allegation claim the photos are authentic, and that it really is Obama's momma (Stanley Ann Dunham). Snopes lists it as "undetermined."
I seek only the truth. Sooner or later a listener will call me on the air and bring this up. I'd like to respond with a well-documented, or at least well-researched, answer.
Do you have any information on this that I can use to prove or disprove the allegations that Obama's momma posed for nudie shots that are now circulating on the web?"
The writer, a proud member of the right-wing media, later stated that he was only "seeking information to DISPROVE the allegation that those titties belong to Obama's momma. "
I would think that something like this is below even Republi-con low standards for newsworthiness. But I guess if you are a Republi-con, you can have no shame for the sake of the party.
This email proves that there is no limit to shameless Republi-con hatred.
What do you think?
