    I don't even begin to understand how that's racist...


    June 2008
    THE RACISM: At the Texas state GOP convention last June, one vendor sold this button asking, "If Obama is President will we still call it the White House?" Get it? Because he's black.
    Oh come on...that's just funny.

    October 16, 2008
    THE RACISM: The classy October newsletter of the Chaffey Community Republican Women of San Bernadino, California, contained a food stamp depicting Obama as a donkey surrounded by things black people are supposed to enjoy eating.
    But where's the grape drink and the newport cigarettes?

    November 5, 2008
    THE RACISM: South Carolina political consultant, and co-owner of the political website SC Hotline, Jeffrey Sewell, made an insightful Obama-Curious George comparison on Twitter the day after the election.
    You mean like calling Bush a chimp? Yeah not buying it.

    December 2008
    THE RACISM: As a Christmas present, Tennessee RNC chairman Chip Saltsman sent out a CD of political parody songs, including one called "Barack the Magic Negro," which was based on the title of a Los Angeles Times article of the same name.
    You do know that the Magic Negro is a literary term describing a deus ex machina character who makes everything better...like an african american fairy godmother? It's all over college level text books, etc.

    Start here and educate yourself: [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_negro"]Magical Negro[/ame]
    January 2009

    THE RACISM: Salvatore Ballarino, an appointed member of Staten Island's Community Education Council District 31, forwarded numerous, supposedly humorous, photo strips comparing black people to monkeys or excrement.
    Come on...share the joke with everyone or it didn't happen.

    January 30, 2009
    THE RACISM: After President Obama's inauguration, Carol Carter, a Republican state committeewoman in Florida, sent out an e-mail quipping "How can 2,000,000 blacks get into Washington, DC in 1 day in sub zero temps when 200,000 couldn't get out of New Orleans in 85 degree temps with four days notice?" The subject line, providing a truly dishonest assessment of the contents within, read, "Amazing!"
    Racist, maybe. And tasteless...definitely. But still funny.

    Feb 25, 2009
    THE RACISM: Dean Grose, the mayor of Los Alamitos, California, thought a "small group of friends" -- including a black woman, not incidentally -- would get a kick out of an e-mail showing a watermelon patch growing on the White House lawn, and the caption, "No Easter egg hunt this year."
    Racist.

    March 9, 2009
    THE RACISM: The mayor of Dallas, Georgia, posted an esoteric message on his Facebook page, seen here, that is believed by the Internet-commenter hive-mind to refer to Schlitz beer and Camel cigarettes -- you know, things Obama might reasonably be expected to offer Gordon Brown as a gift.
    Pfft. It's Newports cuz they be menthawl, yo. This didn't even come close to being racist. It was just stupid.

    April 27, 2009
    THE RACISM: On their website, the Republican Women of Clifton joked that Baskin Robbins had created a new ice-cream flavor named Barocky Road, which was half vanilla and half chocolate. But, this extended metaphor continues, the "vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient," which doesn't even make any sense. Does "white woman from Kansas" ring any bells? It should.
    I don't see how a satirical observation of how the man carries on is racist, but whatever...

    May 28, 2009
    THE RACISM: Sherri Goforth, an executive assistant for Tennessee state senator Diane Black, e-mailed a photo collage of America's presidents that portrays President Obama as a set of eyes in the darkness.
    Yeah that one just wasn't cool at all.

    June 12, 2009
    THE RACISM: Longtime GOP activist and former South Carolina State Senate candidate Rusty Depass wrote on Facebook that an escaped gorilla was "just one of Michelle's ancestors -- probably harmless."
    I dont see the racism in that...she is kinda apish.

    June 12, 2009
    THE RACISM: Another South Carolina GOP activist, Mike Green, tweeted the alleged joke, "JUST HEARD OBAMA IS GOING TO IMPOSE A 40% TAX ON ASPIRIN BECAUSE IT'S WHITE AND IT WORKS." And yes, it was, obnoxiously, entirely capitalized.
    Meh...whatev. I heard that one back during the election. And yes, I laughed hysterically. Because a black dude told it to me. And yes, he was laughing at my reaction.

    July 1, 2009
    THE RACISM: After a friend elegantly declared, "obama bin lauden is the new terrorist....muslim is on there side...need to take this country back from all of these mad coons........and illegals" on the Facebook wall of Young Republican vice-chairman Audra Shay, Shay responded, eight minutes later, "You tell em Eric! lol."
    Umm, ever hear of sarcasm? What was she supposed to say to that? Sounds to me like she was playing it off.

    but Jimmy, what republican racism are you possibly referring to? [/s]
    Well I mean, if you want, we can start throwing out random racism by various democrats and color it as Democratic Racism under one broad brush. You wanna do that? Yes, lets do just that....

    Re: Jimmy Carter: Wilson comments 'based on racism'

    My opinion, not that my opinion matters to any but myself and wife, is that Carter has always engaged mouth before brain.

    This, his latest utterance for posterity merely proves the above statement.

    Plenty of posters trying so desperately to "win" against me.

    Here's a clue.

    I do not care, nor am I impressed with how many of you come out of the woodshed to defend each other.

    Its absolutely comical that you guys are so worried, so threatened, that you all feel the need to save each others asses.

    Keep on piling it on guys, the more of you come the better.

    Half a dozen of you, and you still can't close.

    Well, put down the coffee guys.

    Coffee is for closers.
    Are you crying? Really, there's no need to get all pissy. I know it's hard to debate people with actual intellects but you need to keep trying.

    I'm not going to respond to questions where you have setup the parameters of the debate.

    I reject your entire premise.

    It doesn't matter how many times you want to repeat yourself, I will not answer your lame attempts to rig the debate.
    Do you even know what you're saying? Do you even understand the words you are using?

    You reject his entire premise...okay? What does that demonstrate besides your uninformed disagreement?

    You don't like his parameters...uhhhhh. You mean operating within a logical and coherent context? Those parameters?

    Methinks you like to fancy yourself a debater but in reality you're just a pretender. No wonder you've managed to humiliate yourself so thoroughly.

    President Obama told reporters today that he does not agree with former president Carter.

    Obama then called Carter a Jackass.

    You showed that racism exists. Did anyone dispute that? No, so what's your point?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I'm glad he's wise enough to not add fuel to these divisive remarks by Carter.

    I'm still waiting for the evidence that shows Joe Wilson is racist.

    I doubt if it'll be forthcoming. Hopefully this will all die down, it's ridiculous really that we are even wasting time ruminating over it like this.
