What is therre to be offended about?
Fred Sanford and Aunt Ester are two of the MOST BELOVED CHARACTERS to EVER BE ON TELEVISION!!!
If anyone were to compare ME to either of these famous sitcom characters, I WOULD BE PROUD!
(I cannot say that about most American Politicians- I would NOT want to be compared to them, for they are CROOKS!)

After having read excerpts from Obama's books, I'd have to say he is about the most racist politician since George Wallace.
