Bag’s Take-Away:
 WTF? I spent 2nd through 4th grade living in Orange County and can tell you the KKK was very active less than 90 years ago. One neighbor belonged to the Klan and had Klan memorabilia displayed in his ranch modern living room (though he had Disney decals on the dashboard of his truck and threw up if any child sniffled in his presence); another had a cross burned on his lawn. Can you imagine how a child digests all this information in the pre-Ghostbusters days?  I promise you it wasn’t with a cute, cuddly cartoon Klansman.

Bag’s Take-Away:

"Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people—mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it."  — Marilyn Davenport

Well, Orange County Tea Party leader shows her true colors. The fact the local GOP stood by her also speaks volumes. Regarding the pic, if it wasn’t so blazingly offensive to read into it at all, you’d almost think those chimps had gotten hammered by the recession.
