Obama Half-Breed Muslin? This Would Be Funny If It Weren't So Pathetic.

Man, these sorts of stories seem to pop up every week. This one's only notable because of it's comedic irony.

A sign in one man's front yard has stirred up a controversy in his community.

Neighbors of Andy Lacasse said the sign, which reads "Obama Half-Breed Muslin [sic]," breaches the fine line between free speech and inappropriateness.

"I got nothing good to say about Obama," Lacasse told News 13. "If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there."
And here's the fine Mr. Lacasse, explaining the rationale behind the sign.

I guess you could see this as a sign of the times. It's not that we didn't expect people like this to exist, but in the year 2008, I would at least expect people like this to care enough about their reputations to not want to be labelled a racist by their neighbors.

And make no mistake, that sh*t IS racist.

Question: Do signs like the one above offend you or is it simply par for the course? What's the highest grade level that Mr. Lacasse completed?
