It’s called The White House for a reason…

So… these people exist:

Technically, the statement is correct. It is called The White House for a reason. Because in 1901 that’s what President Theodore Roosevelt decided should be its official name. Prior to that it was variably called the Presidential Mansion, President’s Palace, and President’s House with official usage being the Executive Mansion up until Roosevelt slapped “White House–Washington” onto the official letterhead.

But that’s not the reason these people are thinking of. You can even see that some of them recognize it for the racist statement it is. That’s the best argument they have for voting for Romney. Not that his policies are better. Not that he’ll do a better job. Only because he’s white and the current President is black.

  1. I bet these “patriotic” ‘Mericans call themselves Christians. Hypocrisy knows no bounds in this country it seems.

  2. To quote from Blazing Saddles:
    Jim: [consoling Bart] What did you expect? “Welcome, sonny”? “Make yourself at home”? “Marry my daughter”? You’ve got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.

  3. Not to be racist, but I hate niggers.
    Not to be antireligion either, but I REALLY FUCKING HATE Mormons.

    Fuck it, Ralph Nader gets my vote again. This is three races in a row that neither candidate is worth a shit.

  4. Not that he’ll do a better job. Only because he’s white and the current President is black.

    Not to mention that he’s pretty good at lying with a straight face, AND he wears magic underwear.
