The joke is they offered her $50 instead her do it for free. Black woman in Africa have been in NatGeo countless tines in the past. Have any of them ever been paid? Has a FLOTUS ever been paid for her picture appearing in any magazine?

I think Maher’s “jokes” about Sarah Palin and Trig are far more offensive and Prez took $1MM donation from him.

Remembering those pictures I'd suggest that maybe that was because, in comparison, white women didn't actually have breasts ~ and may I call your attention to the fact they never showed any asian women's breasts either~!

It was all about the size, not the race.

Everything spewed from Maher’s mouth is offensive to me.

He’s one guy I would love to pimp slap.

Mild in comparison to the Liza and Rastus jokes. Still, it does convey a racial stereotype insulting to Blacks and all that does is give ammunition to the Obamaites.

Back in the day the only place where adolescent boys could titter (pun intended) over forbidden sights were the articles in National Geographic showing photos of topless native women and girls, usually Africans or Micronesians who would look right at home in a Natural History museum Stone Age Life diorama. Photo shopping a bone in her nose might be thought in equally bad taste.

Instead of the usual center page foldout, they would have to use a three page fold out to get wide loads butt in the photo.

IMO white women, and Asian women, have some of the most beautiful breasts around. The ones shown in NatGeo were of women who’s breasts hung down like socks with rocks in them. To me that is not attractive. They looked like they had been run over with a truck tire.

Big flat breasts that look like two dogs looking at your feet are not as attractive as smaller perky breasts that look you in the eye and say “Hello”.

If that is racist then Obama is a treasonous bastard. Of course there are other precedents that establish that.

I didn’t mean it like that. What I meant is that look at the Rodeo Clown he lost his gig because of what he said and because he said it about Michelle Obama. Had he said it about Condi Rice or Laura Bush there would be no controversy.

IIRC, Hawkeye Pierce was complaining in one episode that someone had torn pages out of the Nat Geo magazine in the camp outhouse.

As a kid I was offended by NatGeo's blatant racism. Long before Blazing Saddles I wanted to know "where's da white wimmin at?"

One of our rodeo clowns said the only good thing about the cash for clunkers program is that it got a lot of obama stickers off the street :-)

It's not really that funny a joke, but I've heard a lot worse.

On the other hande, I'd be willing to bet back in the day rodeo clowns in Argentina didn't make jokes about Eva Peron, either...

You don’t joke about the Obamas if you don’t want to lose your job. Because with them, all criticism is personal. And payback is personal too.

So, when did the rodeo biz become so prissy?

I'm pretty sure 'rodeo clown Mike Hayhurst of Barstow' is in for the ride of his life.

An angry Brahma Bull is NOTHING compared to the ire of the regime.

He can expect a rectal exam from the IRS for the next several years at a minimum.

Thanks DogByte6RER.
Playboy is offering Ann Romney $250,000 to pose in the magazine, and the White House is upset about it because National Geographic only offered Michelle Obama $50 to pose for them.
It would be funny, but it's completely unbelievable that NG would pay that much.
