Apparently, black people are standing at a predominantly black polling location to intimidate black people into voting for a black guy. Or something.

This shocking turn of events (a couple of assholes apparently show up to stand around and look like assholes) is, to absolutely nobody’s shock and/or awe, being used to prove that SCARY BLACK PANTHERS are being MEAN and BLACK and SOMEHOW RELEVANT. Rush Limbaugh does some crack on-a-different-spot reporting with a guy who’s desperately trying to prove how much of a man he is:

What I appreciate most about this is the thinly-veiled insinuation that this is the grand plan of Obamaism, a liberal fascist move to send two people to one polling place in a heavily Democratic area and have them stand around and be interviewed by conservative white people who then run away and talk about how awesome it was – they could almost taste the grape drink!
