Obama's racist ice cream


Boy, is this stupid: Right-wing bloggers are attempting to spin Obama's ice cream outing with his family in Maine as an attempt to energize his  Black Panther base via subliminal messaging coded in an ice cream logo from a store run by, as the CBS news article above points out, a white lady in a state with an almost non-existent African-American population.  This is presumably the same constituency he was trying to reach with the New Yorker's Politics of Fear cover, only his tactics by now have become considerably more subtle.
