image for Racist E-mail Only Got It Half Right, Says Limbaugh
President Obama assured Americans he has this image ready should Limbaugh ever become President.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ever since Sherri Goforth sent an e-mail depicting President Barack Obama as a pair of eyes on a black background, most Americans presumed Rush Limbaugh would be quick to jump on the bandwagon, condemning the document as racist.

Instead, Limbaugh shocked America on his show today, saying that the depiction "only got it half right."

He went on to explain: "Look, folks. Sure the depiction is unfair. Of course it's unfair. It's unfair because it doesn't accurately portray our President's ancestry as a Halfrican American.

"Perhaps a pair of eyes on a background that's half-white and half-black would've been more appropriate," he suggested.

The document also included images of all forty-three Presidents of the United States, but featured a painted portrait or photograph of all previous forty-two white Presidents, depicting only President Obama as white eyes on a black background.

Former forty-first President Bill Clinton was reportedly "disappointed" not to have also been so characterized, recalling previous suggestions that he was actually the first black President.
