For five long, hard years, not a single day has passed without former "Choom Gang" member Barack Hussein Obama rubbing his blackness in America's (white) face.

So, it wasn't all that surprising when he blackened Martin Luther King, Jr. Day—the GOP's most celebrated holiday—by hanging around a soup kitchen, getting people hooked on government cheese.

No doubt, President Obama is living the dream—the dream of his Kenyan anti-colonialist father; meanwhile, the rest of us are stuck (enslaved) in a nightmare.

It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

Elsewhere...

Illinois GOP congressional candidate Susanne Atanus spoke of a vengeful God.

If you're afflicted with autism or dementia, or if you've lost your worldly possessions due to a tornado, Susanne Atanus thinks you should blame the LGBT community.

"God is angry," Atanus told the Chicago Daily Herald during an endorsement session with the paper earlier this week.

"We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions," she said. "Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it's in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God."

Meanwhile...

Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) mansplained what a wife's role is.

The Washington Post reports that a chapter from Pearce's new book emphasizes wives and husbands each have roles in the household, and the wife's role is obedience. "The husband's part is to show up during the times of deep stress, take the leadership role and be accountable for the outcome, blaming no one else," Pearce writes. "The wife's submission is not a matter of superior versus inferior; rather, it is self-imposed as a matter of obedience to the Lord and of love for her husband."

And, finally...

Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) was perplexed by the lack of racial profiling he encountered at the airport.

"Let me tell y'all a story. I went through the screening of an airport not too long ago and right in front of me there was an elderly lady," Broun continued. "TSA pulled her off to the side and patted her down. And then right behind her was a little kid and he got pulled to the side. I went through and right behind me was somebody dressed in eastern dress — man, single guy, traveling by himself. That's typically [described] as middle eastern and he went right through."

Well, color me shocked!

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.
