In the grand tradition of the Michael Richards fiasco*, we get this headline:
Woman fired for Obama racial slur on Facebook.
The article goes on to say:
TURLOCK, Calif. (AP) — A California woman has been fired and reported to the Secret Service for her President Barack Obama racial slur and assassination comment on Facebook.
Maybe it's just me, but if I were writing the story, I would have led with the "assassination" part, but calling him a bad name is... uh... wrong too.
That is all.
*The fiasco is that everyone concentrated on the fact he said the "n"-word rather than the fact that he referenced lynching favorably.
