Remember this above Obama buck from last week? The one that Chaffey Community Republican Women Federated of San Bernardino County used in a newsletter and with some members claiming that everyone eats those foods depicted, therefore, it is not racist.

Well, the source of image came from Please God No, a satirical website that pokes fun at Republicans. "To have the very Republicans he mocks misunderstand the satire and go up in flames for his work leaves him bemused," writes Veronique de Turenne who dives into the website at LA Times' L.A. Now.

"It’s horrible and funny at the same time" the anonymous blogger told Turenne. "I feel bad for the poor lady who did this, but how stupid do you have to be not to see the racial aspects?"
