Obama monkey dolls are being marketed.
And Fox news has called Michelle Obama Barack Obama’s ‘baby mama’ in their running caption.
Yeah, Gloria. Blatant racism would *never* be displayed the way blatant sexism has been in this election campaign. We’re SO past all that. (Damn, back to the marking now.)
Update: In case you’re wondering, the folks making the Obama doll say their intent is not to offend:
Our objective is three fold:
1} Provide a cuddly toy for the millions of Obama fans to take a little piece of their favorite candidate home with them.
2} Have a means for children to become a part of the political process with a cuddly plush toy all their own.
3| Contribute a pivotal article of presidential election memoribilia.
