Nothing Racist About This At All, Obviously...

 Dunno about you guys, but I for one expected better from a denizen of Kentucky:

A Casey County man says the life-sized mannequin in his front yard of President Obama holding a slice of watermelon was meant as a joke and not a racist display.

"The way I look at it, it's freedom of speech," said Danny Hafley. "I don't know how other people will take it."

Hafley bought the Obama mask on sale after Halloween and put up the display around the time of November's presidential election.

The mannequin, dressed in a grey suit, clip-on tie and blue-collared shirt, was originally standing in Hafley's yard but the homeowner decided it would look better near the road.
I have to ask. Why is it every time some random red neck says/does something blatantly racist, they always say "bubububu freedom of speech!"? I mean, no one's saying you don't have the right to be a racist cretins. Rather, it's about whether one should be a racist cretin (at least, a completely proud and open one anyway). For that matter, anyone else also notice the few times right wingers give a damn about the 1st amendment at all, happen to be in instances like this?

Anyway, this is probably my favorite part of the article:

When asked the reason behind the watermelon, Hafley responded that he thought the figure "might get hungry standing out here."

Well, that was considerate of him. Also:

This isn't the first time Hafley has made such a display. He pulled off the mask and unbuttoned the suit coat to show a white mannequin with a drawn-on moustache wearing a blue-collared shirt with "Stupidville Police Department' written on the right side. Hafley said he designed it after Hustonville Police Chief Fred McCoy.

I can just picture Chief McCoy reading that story in the newspaper during breakfast, with a solemn look on his face, nodding his head and saying: "Well played, Hafley. Well played."
