Riots erupted in eleven southern states today after The New York Times published a derisive cartoon linking the GOP and The Tea Party to the Klu Klux Klan. The cartoon showed three Klan members in white sheets and was labeled Larry, Curley, and Moe. There was a distinct resemblance to Mitt Romny, Paul Ryan, and Reince Priebus in the three characters shown. The NYT is denying this was intentional.

As rioters gathered in the streets and public squares after Sunday church services, many were armed and ran around in circles firing shots in the air. The Associated Press reports the crowds were shouting "God is great" and "death to the evil one." When one demonstrator was asked who the evil one was, the Reverend T.J. McCorkle of Louisburg, NC replied, "The gobmint, that's who! Trying to get my socials security and givin it to the coloreds. Gobmint shoulda never had nothin to do with it in the first place!"

As the riots spread throughout the South many newspapers that had the word 'Times' as part of their mastheads were burned to the ground and Abraham Lincoln was hung in effigy in several town squares. US government offices were ransacked and US flags replaced with confederate flags in many state offices.

A reporter in the traveling press corps of the Romney campaign stopped Romney as he was boarding his private jet bound for Birmingham, Alabama. Reporter: "Governor Romney, what do you have to say about these riots?"

Romney: "Well for one thing I wouldn't necessarily call them riots." According to those present he then took on a condescending manner and added, "You know we do have the right of free speech in the constitution of our country.

Reporter: "But Governor, who do you think the country belongs to?"

Romny looked startled, thought for a moment and reportedly mumbled, "I'll get back to you on that."
