Photo doctored by Tea Party racist

Remember Dale Robertson, the Houston area Tea Party leader who was photographed carrying a racist sign?

Well, Robertson isn't content to just leave the matter alone. So he's doctored the photograph to make the sign appear less offensive by replacing the original words with a Prince-like "I WORK 4 U." He's posted the doctored version on his own website.

Robertson didn't even do a good job at doctoring the picture! It looks like he used a half-broken ball mouse on an old Windows 98 machine to write in the new slogan.

Uh, Dale? I think you might want to go to work for MSNBC. They're known for bad right-wing hoaxes.

I also find it interesting that Robertson calls his movement the 1776 Tea Party - even though the real Boston Tea Party was in 1773.
