If you think Cliffie Kincaid's nuttier than a fruitcake made from Reed Irvine's head cheese (see post immediately below), check out Lisa Schiffren, who thinks that Barack Obama is the product of a Communist Party breeding experiment:

Barack Obama is the new man, of course. His mixed race is a symbol of that. Just like Tiger Woods — as we have read, endlessly. What's to wonder about?

But maybe it's not so simple. Obama and I are roughly the same age. I grew up in liberal circles in New York City — a place to which people who wished to rebel against their upbringings had gravitated for generations. And yet, all of my mixed race, black/white classmates throughout my youth, some of whom I am still in contact with, were the product of very culturally specific unions. They were always the offspring of a white mother, (in my circles, she was usually Jewish, but elsewhere not necessarily) and usually a highly educated black father. And how had these two come together at a time when it was neither natural nor easy for such relationships to flourish? Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics.

And that would reflect a lot better on the Communist Party than on the Young Republicans, except in Schriffen's twisted mind.

Of course, the liberal media is covering up the plot against Purity of Essence:

Political correctness was invented precisely to prevent the mainstream liberal media from persuing [sic] the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama's mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student. Love? Sure, why not? But what else was going on around them that made it feasible? Before readers level cheap accusations of racism — let's recall that the very question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s. The notion of a large group of mixed race Americans became an issue during and after the Vietnam War. Even the civil-rights movement kept this culturally explosive matter at arm's distance.

If you find a coherent thought in that paragraph, let me know, will ya? Given that interracial marriage was illegal in many places until 1967 and a death sentence in many others in the early 60s, it's hard to understand how "the question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s." Perhaps Schiffren means that people knew their places until the 60s ruined everything.

But Schiffren thinks she has the answer to the question than the EMESSEM will not persue:

It was, of course, an explicit tactic of the Communist party to stir up discontent among American blacks, with an eye toward using them as the leading edge of the revolution.

And nothing would discontent American blacks more than having them marry crazy white women. It all makes sense now.

Time for some investigative journalism about the Obama family's background, now that his chances of being president have increased so much.

Because we can't have the product of Communist fucking occupying the White House.
