While America still lies on its shower floor, balled up in the fetal position, trying in vain to understand why Rep. Joe Wilson would possibly yell out "You lie!" in the middle of the Barack Obama's speech last week, former president Jimmy Carter has used all of his brains to think up a possible explanation…
"I think it's based on racism," Carter said at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta.
Hmmm… That could maybe be an explanation, I guess. But, isn't Wilson from South Carolina? If I'm not mistaken, they're a pretty enlightened bunch of people down there.
And what about my Uncle Rex who's always yelling at the TV when Obama talks. He feels the same way, and I know he's not a racist, because he tells me he's not a racist every time he tries to explain how black people are genetically incapable of having monogamous relationships.
"There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president." The Georgia Democrat said the outburst was a part of a disturbing trend directed at the president that has included demonstrators equating Obama to Nazi leaders.
"Those kind of things are not just casual outcomes of a sincere debate on whether we should have a national program on health care," he said. "It's deeper than that."
Yes, of course it's deeper than that. It's because people don't want the country run by a socialist Nazi. Not that they have anything against socialist Nazis. In fact, they know this one socialist Nazi guy at work and he's kinda funny and really good at basketball. He's an okay guy, they guess. Just don't let that socialist Nazi guy anywhere near their daughters.
