rush limbaugh president obama Rush Limbaugh: Triple Double Oreo will be 'Or Bam eo,' a biracial cookieRadio host Rush Limbaugh has put more controversial comments out onto the airwaves, this time directed at President Obama. On his radio show Wednesday (Aug. 17), Limbaugh says:

“Kraft foods is going to launch a
new Oreo … It’s a Triple
Double Oreo. Do you like Oreos, is that? Well, it, what it’s going to be here, it’s
actually a biracial cookie. You’ve got three of the chocolate wafers, and then
you’ve got the white vanilla cream, the cream, and then there’s a chocolate
cream. So you’ve got, you’ve got three — the stuff, the thing that says Oreo
on it, the wafer. And then you’ve got the white cream, then you’ve got another
chocolate wafer, then you’ve got the chocolate cream, and then you’ve got the
bottom wafer.

The Triple Double Oreo. You wait, it isn’t
going to be long before it’s called the Or-Bam-eo, or something like this.
Well, it’s a biracial cookie, here … In the midst of all this talk of obesity.
And, I mean, every time Michelle Obama goes out there and talks about healthful
eating, the food industry responds with, ‘Oh, yeah? Take this.’ And Kraft comes
up with the Or-Bam-eo, the triple double-dipper.”

First off, there is no way that Rush Limbaugh is ignorant of the racial slur “Oreo,” which means a black person who “acts white” or is white on the inside. Is this a pointed comment at President Obama being an “Oreo”?

Secondly, people say that Rush Limbaugh is a satirist. What, exactly, is this satirizing?
