Remember Us... "We The People"
Dear Marshall Groenig,
It sounds like you had one heck of a float at the Naches Sportsman's Day parade. Putting Obama in a slave-drawn red wagon was brilliant in itself, but having him whip the slaves was sheer genius. An empowered black man whipping a bony, and apparently starving, white boy is the perfect metaphor for what fuels our anger and feeds our fears. You couldn't have delivered the message any better if you'd all chanted, "Oh my God, the President is a big, angry Negro!"
That said, the float could have been better. It's like you quit before you were finished. I mean, hey, if you're going the traditional route, you owe it to our forefathers to go all out. Why wasn't there white women for Obama to lustily ogle? Where were the Confederate flags?
Well, I suppose there's still time to fix it before the next parade.

Kirk worked hard on that float. I'm sure he'd appreciate hearing how you feel about it.
