There's a bru ha ha happening in Seaside Heights that has nothing to do with Snookie or The Situation.
There's a arcade game on the boardwalk where players are supposed to throw baseballs at plates being held by mannequins. Break a plate win a prize. The mannequins resemble the Burger King, The Joker, Michael Jackson, Bin Laden, and Boston Red Sox player and some say President Obama.
Due to a PC outcry, the owner of the game covered the "Obama" mannequin with a bag and finally removed it, replacing it with a resemblance of George W. Bush or Hillary Clinton.
The Asbury Park Press and The Associate Press covered this big news. The Secret Service even investigated. It was bigger news that Frank Pallone missing his own Town Hall meeting.
I don't get it. That mannequin doesn't look like Obama. The most offensive thing about that video is the drinking toys the teenagers won for throwing the balls.
The mannequin is too dark to be Barack Obama. The President's smile doesn't look like that. Except for the ears and the haircut, the mannequin's face looks more like the First Lady than it does the President. It doesn't look like her much either.
It looks like Tillie in Black face.
OMG, can you imagine the outcry if the game owner promoted that mannequin as Tillie in blackface? Al Sharpton would knock Snookie and Charlie Rangel off the front pages.
It would be a bigger scandal than the Shoot the Guido game on the boardwalk. Hmmmm.
Maybe if Rudy Giuliani had been elected President, the PC leftie media would be offended by Shoot the Guido and a lack of respect for the Presidency. I doubt it but maybe.
There must be an election coming. The left and media is trying to manufacture racism and racial insensitivity. The message is if you don't support the President's agenda, you're a racist.
Some will even try to make hay out of this post. The Human Rights Commission might criticise me for writing about the darkness, or lack there of the President's and First Lady's skin color. And I mentioned black face! We were all supposed to have forgotten about black face.
Don't be manipulated. Being opposed to the President's agenda doesn't make anyone racist.

"MMM is a great source of insider gossip and news in the conservative wing of the Republican Party and the Tea Party. I don’t agree with everything I read, but I keep taking a look- it is definitely entertaining. However, MMM would be better and could have far greater credibility if Art Gallagher didn’t display his biases quite so obviously and ran an unbiased forum for discussion.
