Update: Obama now says he wasn’t race-baiting with his dollar bill comments. Horse-hockey!

How moronic is Barack Obama’s latest, bogus whine about Republicans emphasizing his funny name and how “different” he looks from other American presidents to gin up fear?

Well, look who’s afraid of himself. This comes not from the GOP. Not from conservative talk radio. Not from John McCain, who has been too busy calling members of his own party racist for challenging the Obamessiah.

No, this comes from the Senate website of…Barack Obama:

I remember when I first ran for the state Senate – my very first race. A seat had opened up, and some friends asked me if I’d be interested in running. Well, I thought about it, and then I did what every wise man does when faced with a difficult decision: I prayed, and I asked my wife.

And after consulting with these higher powers, I threw my hat in the ring and I did what every person on a campaign does – I talked to anyone who’d listen.

I went to bake sales and barber shops and if there were two guys standing on the corner I’d pull up and hand them literature. And everywhere I went I’d get two questions:

First, they’d ask, “Where’d you get that funny name, Barack Obama?” Because people just couldn’t pronounce it. They’d call me “Alabama,” or they’d call me “Yo Mama.” And I’d have to explain that I got the name from my father, who was from Kenya.

As for how “different” Obama looks, here is another “attack” on his looks. Not from the GOP. Not from conservative talk radio. Not from John McCain.

It’s from Barack Obama in Berlin last week, via LGF:

“I know that I don’t look like the other Americans who’ve previously spoken in this great city.”

Self-fear-mongerer Barack Obama: Afraid of himself.

Stop the hate! End the fear!

It’s the pot calling the kettle black.

Oh, wait. That’s racist.

Reviews of Obama’s latest victim card stunt…

Jake Tapper: “Pretty inflammatory.”

Yeah, and defamatory.

Allahpundit: Defibrillating a desperate narrative.

Peter Kirsanow: “If the GOP really wanted to scare voters they would simply threaten to replay all of Sen. Obama’s insufferable statements, accumulating rapidly by the hour.”

Instapundit: Gaffe-o-matic!

Flashback: Ed Morrissey called out Obama’s race card strategy last month.
