Fake Obama Wants Moms to Return to School

This is one of the more bizarre banner ads I've seen in a while, and even stranger, it was in the Los Angeles Times.

As you can see, this ad -- from some sketchy company called "ClassesUSA" -- is pitching mail-order degrees by suggesting that President Obama wants "moms to return to school."

To illustrate that point, they've included a photo of... a random well-dressed African American man.

Not Obama, mind you. And not even someone who looks like Obama. Apparently ClassesUSA is targeting people so uneducated that they figure people applying for an at-home diploma wouldn't know the difference. Hey, Obama's black, and the guy in this stock photo is black, so what's the difference, right?
