We've all by now seen the diaries by Kos and Troutnut suggesting that the Clinton campaign is putting blackface on Obama in order to play a race card. Sure, the evidence they present looks damning to most normal people. Stretching the video horizontally to make Obama's nose look wider was an accident. Yeah. Right. Pull the other one.

However, some people just refuse to acknowledge that this manipulation of the color and canvas could have been intentional. Surely the Clinton campaign would not be so desperate as to stoop to such tactics.  Regrettable, their willingness to play any race card they can is revealed below.

The Clinton campaign is quietly circulating this cleverly doctored photo of Obama:

Clinton Smurfs Obama

Now, I'd vote for an African American candidate, even a real dark skinned one, but I'll be damned if I'd ever vote for a Smurf. I have always hated the Smurfs, with the way they butcher the language and turn random nouns and verbs into "smurf" as though this could somehow hold meaning to anybody besides Gargamel.

Tell the Clinton campaign to stop smurfing Obama!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
