"Earlier tonight, a contractor of the Iowa GOP made a post referencing a discussion on race that the GOP believes was in bad taste and inappropriate," Spiker wrote in the post.

Because what are contractors for, if not to blame them for your own cock-ups?

Dumb. But I think there are a couple of FARKers who may actually embrace that philosophy.

The really funny thing is that that is what they truly believe.  They don't see the whole "black people want welfare instead of jobs because they are lazy" thing as racist.

The 50,000 'likes' were all contractors too.

But of course.  Those sneaky ne'er-do-well contractors were inflating their success rate for their own nefarious purposes.

Here, I'll frame out a flowchart that will help the GOP avoid embarrassing gaffes like this in the future. Someone else can actually illustrate it.

SHOULD I POST IT? (GOP GUIDE)

1. Do you think it's funny? Yes: DO NOT POST. No: Continue

2. Are you sure? Maybe not "ha ha" funny but funny in a way that ironically reveals some deep-seated truth about society? Yes: DO NOT POST. No: Continue.

3. You don't actually know what "ironically" means, do you? Yes: Continue. No: DO NOT POST.

4. OK. Show it to a close friend of yours. Does he think it's funny (ha ha or otherwise)? Yes: DO NOT POST. No: Continue.

5. Did he say anything that approximates the phrase, "Oh my god, that is so true?" Yes: DO NOT POST. No: Continue.

6. Now that you've thought about it, do you still want to post it? Yes: Continue. No: DO NOT POST.

7. Are you sure? I mean, really, really sure? Yes: Return to 1. No: DO NOT POST.

My grandma used to say the same thing. Of course, she was always talking about the "specials" that went by her house every afternoon on a little bus.

No, don't you understand? It's the Democratics who are racist, because of the welfare plantations, which are just like pre-antebellum cotton plantations, except that all the black people are on welfare.

Twice, a nice white conservative Christian family has wanted to move into a big White House, and he refused to allow that. Because reverse racism.

Note: "antebellum" already means "prewar"

They are minimizing the real impact of Obama hatred.  That is the true test.  If you hate Obama, then you are a racist.  You can disagree with his policies, but hating him is the real sign.

The rest of the joke from the Weeners in the screencap:

The Postal Service created a stamp with a picture of President Obama on it.
The Postal Service noticed that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.
This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.
After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional spending, a special Presidential commission presented the following findings:
1.The stamp is in perfect order.
2. There is nothing wrong with the glue.
3. People are just spitting on the wrong side

From a joke construction standpoint, that's not that bad. You could pretty much substitute any world leader, past or present, in there and the joke has the exact same connotations. It makes me wonder if that is, in fact, a rather old joke originally intended for a previous president.

I'm pretty sure I've heard that during Bush's tenure, so yeah it's probably older than dirt.

also, who spits on stamps? if anything, the joke indicates people are licking pictures of Obama's face.  (Note: most stamps are self-adhesive and have been for a while, so that should also indicate the true age of the joke)

That joke's about as old as postage stamps. Redd Foxx used to do it with "Who wants to lick the back side of Shirley Chisholm?"

Yeah, reasonably clever but not novel. The joke was intelligently designed in a bygone era, but still valuable today.

Yup.  It's as old and overused as the joke "The most dangerous place in the world is to be between *INSERT PERSON'S NAME HERE* and a TV Camera/Microphone/Camera"
