Smitty, you may well have been joking, but check out the comments FTFA.

Top comment:  While the Obamas throw extravagant parties and go on 4 million dollar vacations (partially sponsored with tax payers money) the rest of the US is trying to provide for their families. This man should be impeached. He is a joke. He is not a President and surely not a great leader.

It's getting harder and harder to take these anti-Obama nutjobs seriously.

Did anyone take them seriously from the beginning?

I mean, anyone with a high school education?

The other day a "friend" posted some MLK quote along with some innocuous comment about the progress we've made.  This woman responded saying that we have reverse racism today that is just as bad as the racism when MLK was alive (almost literally this) and that basically liberals are a bunch of hypocrite elitists who shouldn't tell people they are dumb or can't think for themselves because they have a different opinion.

I am utterly fascinated by such comments and can't believe people are that completely stupid.  I want to believe it is an extreme emotional investment on their part that drives such craziness.

They only had the one ball, usually there are more, aren't there? it is a scaled back affair.

"Glad they had a good time on America's dime. I'm sure the unemployed were gratful for your hundred million dollar "lip sync"."

THANKS, BEYONCE OBAMA

Her words mind you.  And they way I describe it makes her statement less stupid than what she actually posted (but I do believe she said "reverse").

McCain would have been in bed by 8:30, and Romney would have drunk some fruit juice and played scrabble with Ann until 9 PM, before putting his slippers on and closing a few factories by email.

For shame. They were having FUN at the White House! Did they forget the economy, Newtown, Poland decorum? Next thing you know, they'll be dancing and having sex. Right there, in the White House! It's America's house! I wouldn't want the Obamas having sex in my living room, why should they have it there?

By the by, how does one deal with a presidential hangover?

Reverse racism is usually used to refer to racism that one* perceives to be caused by a response to racism. Like "Why do they get a black history month? There's no white history month! That's reverse racism."

*usually a crazy person

Weird, I was taught that reverse racism is when you still believe in a superior/inferior racial structure but that your own race is the inherently bad one. Like a kind of self-loathing, but broader in application. So if a white guy feels that he's just fundamentally inferior to the other possible races to a point of action against his own race in favor of the advancement of others, that'd be reverse racism. I can't think of a ready example though, my brain is frozen.

/reverse racism is not when whites are persecuted by others
