For the most part, falling only perhaps to Liz, I am as pro-New Jersey person as you will find.Â Despite what a lot of people and comedians may lead you to believe there is a lot to like.Â I am not going to go into a long list here (your welcome).Â But one of those things that I am typically happy about is that (perhaps thanks to northern logistics), it is a place that race does not usually play a big part in the way people thing.
Perhaps that is why then I am utterly shocked and amazed when something like this comes along.Â It seems that Pemberton Republican Club in New Jersey thought it would be cute to try and link Barack Obama and OJ Simpson with the slogan, “Obama loves America like O.J. loved Nicole.”
The club’s Web master, Ed Kuck, didn’t respond to a message left at his home but told The Philadelphia Inquirer that he saw the slogan on an Internet site and copied it onto the club’s Web page as a joke.
“I just want to apologize to anybody who was offended, because that wasn’t our intention at all,” Kuck told the newspaper.
Racism, is apparently still “funny” to some people. Â While this fact does not shock me, and I fully expect to see more pathetic attempts to inject racism into the race, I never expected it to come from here.Â Just goes to show, narrow minded people live everywhere.
