Federal Judge admits sending Racist e-mail - the reason: ‘I sent it out because its anti-Obama’

President W. Bush must be proud. One of his nominations for a federal judge is keeping the “Good Old Boy” mentality alive. 

Montana's U.S. District Chief Judge Richard Cebull (photo right) admitted to sending a racially charged e-mail about President Obama from his courthouse chambers today.

The forwarded text reads as follow:

"Normally I don't send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.

"A little boy said to his mother; 'Mommy, how come I'm black and you're white?' " the e-mail joke reads. "His mother replied, 'Don't even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you're lucky you don't bark!' "

Here’s the thing:

The judge acknowledged that the content of the e-mail was racist, but said he does not consider himself racist. "The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan," Cebull said. "I didn't send it as racist, although that's what it is. I sent it out because it's anti-Obama." (source)
