From a story in The Hill about a town hall meeting on health care featuring Democratic congressman Jim Moran Moran of Virginia and Howard Dean:

The Moran town hall was the last stop on a 10-city tour for Randall Terry, the anti-abortion activist known for his extreme tactics.

Terry's colleagues put on a skit with a man in an Obama mask pretending to whip a bloodied woman, who kept saying, "Massa, don't hit me no more. I got the money to kill the babies."

It creeps me out that Terry's minstrel troupe went in this direction, and the creep-out isn't mitigated by the fact that they reversed the racial "massa"-slave relationship. It's still racism; it's just racism mixed with projection. These people have very ugly souls.
