    Racism? Maybe once removed.
    The problem with it is who said it. A racist bas+ard using it as dogwhistle: obnoxious, Obama joking about Birther idiots: excellent. “These days I look in the mirror and have to admit, I'm not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be,”

        Pointing out that it works as humor.
        I guess I laugh inappropriately.

          if you think the President is really Kenyan or if you think wait, what let me ask ask you, what do you believe about the President.

            He's right with Obama using a similar joke.  Jokes can be offcolor and bad taste if told by the right person with the right meaning.

            Think about it, if Obama had told this joke, it would be a great play on all the dumb things (R)s believe about him.  That's what he's saying.. this is a well written joke that only works in the hands of people who would use it to roast those who believe this way.

            It is almost as though someone is telling an inappropriate joke that claims to show a group or idea as stupid.. except it's that same person the joke is about telling it :)

            That's all.  I don't think he's messing with you, I think you're both hitting at the same thing just from different angles.

            (and yes, the Joke does show every dumbass thing these people believe in)
