The one thing that is truely non-partisan

Apparently, bitching about your political opposition is the only thing that is truly non-partisan.

Don't get me wrong, yelling 'You LIE!' at the President is pretty uncouth, however, implying that the guy is a racist is pretty big stretch (I had previously thought that we had moved past the issue of race in politics).

Personally, I think that more outbursts of the 'you lie' nature would make our legislative bodies run a bit more like the chaotic House of Commons... This would certainly make our elected representatives' concerted efforts to run our country into the ground a bit more entertaining to watch. :)

EDIT:

Now, are we gonna say that the people that did any of the following pictures of George Bush were terrible racists? No, because that would be absurd. George Bush was no doubt a big government d-bag, whereas Obama is a big government d-bag, but, one that is at least relatively honest about being for big government.
