Nice way to apologize "... if it offended anyone":
In San Bernardino County, a Republican women's organization sent a monthly newsletter to its members that carried a racially insensitive depiction of Obama. "Obama talks about all those presidents that got their names on bills. If elected, what bill would he be on? Food Stamps, what else!" read the caption above an "Obama Bucks" bill cartoon image in the latest edition of the Chaffey Community Republican Women Federated newsletter. The independent community organization is not a part of the state Republican Party, and its newsletter is distributed to a few thousand members in the county.
Next to the senator's image was a bucket of fried chicken, a slab of ribs, a slice of watermelon and a pitcher of Kool-Aid. Diane Fedele, the organization's president, took responsibility for the image and apologized "if it offended anyone."
