Now this is interesting. As a commenter mentioned, Bob Barr was accused of yelling racial slurs at a security guard a few years back. Usually those sorts of accusations will get you accused of being racist. But when you're in my cross-hairs and you've got the visage of Bob Barr, they get you accused of being black. It isn't just that accusation, it's also the fact that Barr apparently gets really pissed-off when people ask him that he's black. Who'd get mad about that? People in NY start speaking Spanish to me all the time, apparently thinking I'm Puerto-Rican. I wouldn't get pissed...unless....

I tell you a smell a conspiracy. It's really coincidental that Bob Barr will be taking votes from McCain, thus helping us elect a black man. Isn't that kinda funny?
