Totally Schweet….Two Tan Guys to Choose From For President!

May 15, 2008 § 3 Comments

Bob Barr has announced he will be running for President under the Libertarian banner. Oh Joy.

Isn’t he practically a Klan supporter? He claims not.

In 1998, Barr spoke at a convention of the white supremacist “Council of Conservative Citizens“, but later denied that he was a white supremacist himself. Barr is known to become very angry when asked whether he is black.

Doesn’t seem like ol’ Bobbie thinks he’s a tan guy, though does it? So why does everyone think he’s black, anyway? Well, Christopher Beam of Slate does a magnificent job illustrating.
