This billboard, reposted at Buzzfeed, does the impossible: It portrays everything that right-wing extremists hate about "DemocRATS" in one concise image—depicting Obama as a series of crude stereotypes: terrorist, gangster, Mexican immigrant, and a homosexual—and it manages to shock me while doing it. I thought that after all the Glenn Beck clips, my soul had calloused into an unshockable nub. Thanks for proving me wrong, I guess, Mr. anonymous Colorado conservative guy.
