The Tea Party political movement has labeled U.S. President Barack Obama a "skunk" saying he is "black and white and stinks" much like the furry animal. When I read the word "skunk" and remembered the president in the context of the aforementioned statement, immediately the Jamaican in me thought of the brand of super weed that goes by the same name, said to be stronger than most types of marijuana and Obama's fondness for the herb in general:

However, maybe that's not what the Tea Party meant, as some are crying foul and saying their statements were racist. When you think about it, I can see how it could be perceived in that manner. Either way, wasn't my interpretation of it more humorous. In the words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along."
