Was it just by chance that the darker side of Obama is with the Democrats and the lighter side is with the Republicans? Can you imagine the uproar if Fox News has used this? I have to imagine that there were a number of people that had to check off on this before it was posted; not a single one thought this would be in bad taste...
This is the picture CBS used as part of their election coverage.
Picture embedded below. (via)
"Accompanying their election coverage on their website, CBS published this photoshopped picture of a half black/half white President Obama with Republicans and Democrats on either side of him as if to say he is split between the two.
Needless to say Obama's white side is on the side of the GOP's John Boehner and Eric Cantor. His black half is on the side of Harry Reid and Charles Schumer. Are they saying that Obama will have to act white with Republicans?"
