Who painted Obama green and gave him a broccoli afro?

obamabroccoliPeople for the Ethical Treatment of Animals might be the cat’s pajamas when it comes to taking care of abused pets, but they could use some help with political “optics.”

Not to mention racial sensitivity.

And taste.

Granted, President Obama engaged in a little exaggeration of his fondness for broccoli Tuesday when he told a student reporter it’s actually his favorite food. (Broccoli is nobody’s favorite food. Broccoli’s not even Broccoli’s favorite food.)

That doesn’t give PETA carte blanche to plaster a picture of the president of the United States onto a T-shirt looking like a cross between the Jolly Green Giant and Don King.


If any tea party group in the country made a poster of an afroed-Obama painted green over Solyndra, Chris Matthews’ leg would have tingled off.

If the Koch brothers put out an ad making the president look like he just got off the stage with the Jackson 5 during the “ABC” days, Al Sharpton would have spit farther than usual.

But PETA makes a T-shirt depicting Obama looking like Jimi Hendrix in an emerald haze, and USA Today’s coverage treats it like an ad for Ronald McDonald House.

The Huffington Post publishes a story and the most critical comment is from a wag who thought “Brocc Obama” would have made the point better (he was right).

And from the professional hyperventilators of the professionally racially aggrieved?

Barely a word at all.

There really isn’t a double standard for liberals when it comes to race.

Sometimes, they have no standards at all.
