You gotta hand it to those teabaggers… they certainly know how to raise the level of political discourse:
Criticism has arisen over a float in the annual Naches Sportsman’s Days parade that some are calling offensive and in bad taste.
Sponsored by a local group that’s part of the tea party movement, the float resembled an oversized red wagon. Riding on it was a man wearing a President Obama mask, cracking a whip over a youth pulling the wagon.
Several people on the float carried signs critical of federal spending, Wall Street bailouts, tax increases and U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, who is locked in a re-election battle with Republican Dino Rossi.
Well, at least this float was in better taste than the group’s original idea, which featured Obama praying to Mecca while raping a white woman.
