Fla. vandals tag 60 cars with anti-Obama messages

From the AP:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Vandals have spray-painted 60 city vehicles in Orlando, Fla., some with messages against Sen. Barack Obama.

The cars were parked across from city hall late Saturday night. Investigators say the culprits tagged notes such as “Obama smokes crack” and a racial epithet. They even left business cards on each vehicle.

These buttons are being sold at the Republican state convention:

While a number of speakers — such as Railroad Commission chairman Michael Williams and Mike Huckabee — have praised the advance of Barack Obama and what it means towards a colorblind society, at least one vendor hasn’t gotten the message.

At the Republican state convention, a booth hosted by Republicanmarket was selling a pin Saturday that says: If Obama is President will we still call it the White House.

The buttons come soon after The Sock Obama which may or may not be discontinued

Plunderbund has been keeping track of that story.


…let’s not forget these charming t-shirts from Mulligan’s Bar & Tavern.

Marietta tavern owner Mike Norman says the T-shirts he’s peddling, featuring cartoon chimp Curious George peeling a banana, with “Obama in ’08” scrolled underneath, are “cute.” But to a coalition of critics, the shirts are an insulting exploitation of racial stereotypes from generations past.

“It’s time to put an end to this,” said Rich Pellegrino, a Mableton resident and director of the Cobb-Cherokee Immigrant Alliance. It was among the organizations planning to gather outside Mulligan’s Bar and Grill Tuesday afternoon to protest the “racist and highly offensive” shirts.

In what will be one of many, the weeMichelles have been brought into the zaniness that will be the first campaign, an artist’s exhibit was shutdown after he used a word that you are not to use related to presidents or presidential candidates in this country. Yes, free speech is not absolute.

The exhibit included a picture of Barack Obama’s “Audacity of Hope” switched to “The Audacity of Black Hope.”, a giant penis on the wall next to a sign saying “once you go Barack”, hanging nooses, and this picture of Sasha and Malia Obama.
