Cassie Wright, UT GOP Anti-Obama Tweeter, Doubles Down on the Dumbness
When Cassie Wright became the second straight perky-blond head of the UT College Republicans to send out an obnoxious anti-Obama tweet, she quickly took her Twitter account private.
But now she's back, and doubling down on the dumbness.
Her apparent point, which seems startling to her: The internet and social media are full of people who make idiotic, offensive statements. She's posting what appear to be the most offensive, including calls for her to be raped by a black man.
Because, you know, random a-hole commenters are no different than presidents of the UT College Republicans.

Wright, of course, started the brouhaha by tweeting "My president is black, he snortsa lot of crack. Holla."
Now she goes all QED on her critics by quoting a passage from Obama's autobiography where he says "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, tough."
SEE SHE WAS RIGHT BITCHES.
A spokesman for the UT College Republicans gave a statement to the Daily Texan:
The UT College Republicans neither condones any 'tweeted' remarks, nor any statements made by any member of our organization that may be hurtful and lacking in sensitivity. The opinion of our President Wright is that of her own not in keeping with our core values, our standards, and our code of conduct.
While some within our organization may not respect the current President, UT College Republicans does respect the office of the President of the United States. We are all Americans, and even if we do not agree with certain policies, the UT College Republicans wish all our leaders well, as they are all dedicated to public service. I personally apologize for [the] 'tweeted' remark.
