Sarah Palin accuses Obama of "shuck and jive shtick"

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin released a statement on her Facebook page accusing President Obama of engaging in "shuck and jive shtick" regarding last month's attack in Benghazi, Libya.

"Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil? We deserve answers to this. President Obama's shuck and jive shtick with these Benghazi lies must end," Palin wrote.

For those who aren't familiar with the phrase, "shuck and jive" is a racially-tinged expression. According to the user-submitted Urban Dictionary, the term "originally referred to the intentionally misleading words and actions that African-Americans would employ in order to deceive racist Euro-Americans in power, both during the period of slavery and afterwards."

Earlier this week, conservative pundit Ann Coulter inspired outrage when she called President Obama a "retard" following his Florida debate with GOP challenger Mitt Romney. An athlete with Down Syndrome wrote an open letter to Coulter in response. "Come on Ms. Coulter," he wrote. "You aren't dumb and you aren't shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?"

7. Facebook does seem to attract a lot of fools and halfwits.

And along with halfwits out come the small minded xenophobic clowns who don't have a decent thought in their head.

15. She is Snow White

32 black people live in Wasilla today.

8 black people live in Sandpoint, Idaho where the shrink wrapped bubble head was born.

So Sarah's view of African Americans is solely based on having seen at most 40 people in her early life.

But she would make up for her lack of experience by knowing all the latest ebonics jokes and doing embarrassing impressions of "black women from da hood."
