It's all food to me!

Now this is what we've been waiting for! Check out the mailer that a GOP group in Southern California just sent out:

The explanation:
The October newsletter by the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps -- instead of dollar bills like other presidents. The statement is followed by an illustration of "Obama Bucks" -- a phony $10 bill featuring Obama's face on a donkey's body, labeled "United States Food Stamps."

The GOP newsletter, which was sent to about 200 members and associates of the group by e-mail and regular mail last week, is drawing harsh criticism from members of the political group, elected leaders, party officials and others as racist.

The group's president, Diane Fedele, ...said she doesn't think in racist terms, pointing out she once supported Republican Alan Keyes, an African-American who previously ran for president.

"I didn't see it the way that it's being taken. I never connected," she said. "It was just food to me. It didn't mean anything else."
Today's GOP doesn't disappoint, does it?

The Republican party is absolutely, morally bankrupt. The way they are behaving now (this flyer, and shouting "kill him!" [Obama] at Palin rallies) ensures that the Republican party will be a footnote in history textbooks. And America will be better for putting this party in the dustbin of history.
