"Street Organizer"

J Street reader PS emails a link to the RNC‘s new oppo site on Obama called “Meet Barack Obama.” (You can Google it. I’m not gonna dignify it with a link.) He notes their description of Obama’s job on the south side of Chicago as a young man is not “community organizer” as the job is commonly known, but rather “street organizer.”

Nice. Frankly, in order to elicit the maximum degree of racial stereotyping I would have gone with “ghetto operative” or “slum captain” but I suppose that would have been too obvious.
