Vote DemocRAT—Join the Game poster caricatures Barack Obama as an Islamist suicide bomber, a homosexual, a gangster, and a Mexican bandit all sitting around a table with a bunch of greedy rats labeled as trial lawyers, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The “Vote DemocRAT—Join the Game” billboard is attracting media moths worldwide and causing quite a stir in Grand Junction, Colorado.  The billboard caricatures Brother O as an Islamist suicide bomber, a homosexual, a gangster, and a Mexican bandit all sitting around a table with a bunch of greedy rats labeled as trial lawyers, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“It’s beyond distasteful, and it’s disrespectful of the commander-in-chief, clearly racist and homophobic. Certainly is not designed for intelligent discourse at all,”—Martelle Daniels, Mesa County DemocRAT chairwoman

The county’s gelded Republican Party chairman weighed in denouncing the billboard as distasteful.

“It’s reprehensible and disrespectful, and that’s not what any honorable person would put forth. To ridicule somebody in this manner is juvenile.”—Chuck Pabst, Mesa County Republican Party chairman

Mesa County’s Party tightasses should unknot their knickers long enough to allow the blood to flow freely to their brains, and then perhaps they’ll understand that the billboard is simply lampooning national politics. It’s not meant to be homophobic, racist, or disrespectful; it’s satire meant to instruct and to be funny. When SNL satirizes Republicans, it’s hilarious. But when it’s done to DemocRATs, it’s in bad taste.

Screw your double standard, get over yourself, and welcome to the conservative reformation.  

I am invigorated … I am reenergized …
