Black Presidents Live In Black House, Say Racist Texan Republicans

The GOP jokesters (is that an oxymoron?) who came up with this handy pin probably thought they were being original, not knowing that the joke is so old and tired that old and tired Southwesterners in bolo ties were getting in trouble for uttering it in public places months ago.

Nevertheless, printed up the “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?” of racist political jokes on a bunch of pins and sold them at the Texas Republican Convention last weekend.

Of course, after photos of the pin hit the press yesterday, the state GOP representatives were shocked and appalled, vowing to never again invite the vendor to an event.

    How about the “Rainbow House?”

  • Kid A

    That’s not even clever. An elementary-school student could think of that “joke” in an instant.

    Nothing like a little blatant racism to put it all in perspective.

  • CitizenGeek

    Wow, that’s just HILARIOUS.

    Right Wing, Racist intolerant scum, what’s new?

  • Darth Paul

    Republicunts clearly hate America.

    Has anything good ever come out of Texas? I wish President Polk had let Mexico keep the whole damn state. Republicans are slime.

    …….and the menu for State Dinners will be fried chicken, greens, okra, with a dash of watermelon on the side, and sweet potato pie for dessert. Cheap beer in a paper bag for toasts. Yikes, what could our country come to??


    RPCV: Don’t forget the Chitterlings and Chicken gizzards, with a side of homophobia.

    That pin has shocked me. I just can’t believe in 2008 that sort of thing is being made.

  • Raven

    What I would like to know is how many buttons this guy sold before they shut him down. Might be an interesting side story.
