Obama Meets The Jeffersons In Redneck Newspaper ColumnYou just don't expect this sort of thing in small-town Tennessee: a columnist for the Murfreesboro Post has—we think it's safe to say—won the prestigious "Most Racist Newspaper Column About Obama's Election" contest (edging out Maureen Dowd). Columnist Stephen Lewis' "Ode To President Obama" keenly dissects our new commander in chief's ascension "To a deee-luxe pimp pad" in Washington, through the prism of The Jeffersons. Sing along, race-mixers!:
(Sung by Obama to the theme song of "The Jeffersons"): "Well we're movin' on up, To Washington, D.C. To a deee-luxe pimp pad, Painted whiiiite. Yeah we're movin' on up, To the White House. I'll be jetting with P. Diddy cross the sky. McCain can't score on the east coast, Palin was just a cute, cheap thrill. Took a whole lot of campaign promises, To take over Capitol Hill. Now we're livin' in the White House Chewin' on the government fat. As long as we here It's tax, tax, tax! Ripping off the rich fat cats! Well we're movin' on up To the big time. To a dee-luxe sweet crib That's just too fly. Moooovin' on up To D.C. I finally showed McCain I'm the guy!"
