LOS ALAMITOS, The mayor of a small Orange County city says he will resign after being criticized for sharing an e-mail picture depicting the White House lawn planted with watermelons under the title "No Easter egg hunt this year."

Certainly an elected oficial should a) know better and b) step down.
In the right hands, it is more lethal to liberalism than a division of [wise]crack troops.
And to think they made fun of Reagan. “He eats jellybeans!”
You probably eat spaghetti. HA HA!
Too bad the mayor is leaving. Clint Eastwood was right in his statement about political correctness. People are too frickin’ sensitive. Life used to be fun; now it’s grueling. I think the cartoon is funny, and I expect to see more of the same as long as Hussein is in office. Seems like there’s a new race war brewing. If Eric Holder, Brother Al Sharpton, et al., continue to stir the pot it’s going to happen.
Even Obama's official poster artist made a Bushitler poster. Barack should have known better.
It would have been OK if the mayor was a dim.
Probably won’t be able to mention watermelon communists anymore (”Green” enviroweenie exterior, “Red” pinko inside).
Glad he resigned. Now I can get back to listin to “slap dat B*$* a*& ho”.
I can understand why they get upset over the “low IQ violent criminal” stereotype, but what makes the “fried chicken and watermelon” stereotype so darn offensive to blacks?
If that’s what they generally like to eat, so be it. The Chinese like rice and the Mexicans like burritos. Nothing wrong with that.
thats just so sad....i think thats pretty damn funny right there.....watermelons, fried chicken and sweet tater pie....
Now I must go down to my local grocery store and SCREAM until the Produce Manager gets fired, and I get some kind of reparations, for putting such racist things on the shelf!
“...watermelons, fried chicken and sweet tater pie....”
Sounds like down home Southern cuisine to me...I watch Paul Deen. Are all Souterners African American? No, ergo the e-mail isn’t racist.
Unless you call a Mexican a beaner, of course...
no we just know how to eat good cookin.....lol...
When my just turned 18 year old daughter, who doubled up her schooling her senior year in high school and is now a licensed cosmetologist, is cutting a client’s hair, and he asks what she thinks of the new Prez., and she says “Well, if I could have voted, I don’t think I would have voted for Obama” and he says “What? Are you a racist bitch?”, then that makes me, who also did not vote for Obama, a racist bastard. Deal with it. :-)
I keep hoping that someday someone will picture an ape, a watermelon or whatever; and when the howls begin say to “H*ll with you!” and stick it out. All things being equal I’ll follow such a man. When these turkeys apologize and resign they are telling us ‘I’m not the man for the job!’
I would stand up for the mayor if this joke wasn’t so lame.
I hope she didn't finish the hair cut. In every job I've ever had, the moment a customer initiated abuse, the work was terminated right then and there.
And yet when Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton used to utter: “Stay out of the Bushs”...that was funny!
