World's Smallest Violin, Playing for the Oppressed White Males.

This morning, the DNC released a video message in which Barack Obama reminded Americans to go to the polls during the 2010 midterms. Obama, noted Ben Smith, aimed the pitch specifically at voters who'd gone to the polls for the first time in 2008. Said the President:

It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos, and women, who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again.

Makes sense! Wingnuts, of course, are terribly angry. Putz, for his part, sees this as a conspiracy against his favorite downtrodden, oppressed, minority group:

OBAMA MAKES racial appeal for votes. Kinda exclusionary to white males, anyway.

I know, right? If only Obama would say nice soothing things to those older white male voters who don't like black people -- and of course totally ignore Hispanics, who surely have no reason to dislike the GOP and cannot possibly be a valuable voting bloc.
