Excerpt: Consider the variety of overtly racist rhetoric
that has plagued us since Obama's election. Haley Barbour's "right hand"
a racist conference. Racist emails circulated
by Republican staffers. Republicans demonstrating in Klan outfits. Republican
depicting the White House behind a watermelon
patch. And campaign tactics which included depicting Obama's face surrounded
fried chicken and watermelon, posters and websites
attempting to link Obama to bin Laden, Pakin praising a racist writer,
In July, Senator George Voinovich (R-Oh) publicly
complained that the GOP is "being taken over by southerners."
Tim Pawlenty voiced similar fears a year ago.
Senators Snowe and Collins are worrying about the GOP's increasingly narrow
The future does not hold much hope for the GOP
when the response of various demographics are taken into account.
America is becoming increasingly multi-cultural,
and support for the GOP amongst minorities is at the bottom of the barrel.
You mean the racist sons of bitches are getting what's coming to them?
Of course, it's not from the democrats - they're too afraid to fight.
But the less-white-every-day voters are angry with the party of racist
I've been thinking a lot of Kennedy and Dallas
as I've watched the increasingly violent rhetorical
attacks on Obama be unfurled. As Americans yank
their kids of class in order to save them from being
exposed to the President of the United States
who only wanted to urge them to excel in the classroom.
And as unvarnished hate and name-calling passed
for health care 'debate' this summer.
The radical right, aided by a GOP Noise Machine
that positively dwarfs what existed in 1963,
has turned demonizing Obama--making him into
a vile object of disgust--into a crusade.
It's a demented national jihad, the likes of
which this country has not seen in modern times.
But I've been thinking about Dallas in 1963 because
I've been recalling the history and how
that city stood as an outpost for the radical
right, which never tried to hide its contempt for JFK.
I assume the Secret Service is extra-alert in the "I-hate-that-nigger"
I also assume Obama won't riding in an open-air convertibles?

"We have a president here who is not scrutinized,
who is not examined. There is no attempt to be suspicious of power anymore. So is it
possible that we really have an African-American president? Or does having an African-American
president paralyze the process by which people with that kind of power in our representative
republic are kept "honest?"
You can almost hear the faux regretful sighs as
these born again racists shake their heads and say,
that, well -- it’s sad, really. Yes, racial equality
was a good-hearted experiment, and we gave it
our best shot, but alas, African Americans just
aren’t ready for it yet….
The end of that headline is ...to
a national race war.
How close are we going to get before Obama comes to work?
He can say "That doesn't exist"
500 times, but it's still there.
I realize he wants this to go away, but when has
ignoring a worsening problem ever been a good idea?

I read up on the Fox train wreck and read that
his mom and brother both committed suicide,
probably within minutes of his birth. His other
brother hung around till Glenn's ranting gave him a heart attack.
We can only hope if he hangs around Fox long
enough he will have the same effect. Keep swinging that hammer.

Maybe that explains why he's such an unstable prick.
Excerpt: The old GOP Southern strategy is gone. The more
the party is identified with nasty name-calling, freak-show protestors,
immigrant-bashing (the proximate cause of Wilson’s
outburst at Obama) and, yes, racism, the faster it will commit demographic
suicide as America becomes ever younger and more
diverse. But Democrats shouldn’t be cocky. Over the short term, the real
economic grievances lurking beneath the extremism
of the Beck brigades can do damage to both parties. The recession-spawned
anger that Beck has tapped into on the right
could yet find a more mainstream outlet in a populist revolt from the left

I expect the Dow to climb at least 200 points today.
Every grass roots activist and every grass roots
organization must make clear to the Blue Dogs
that we expect them to vote with us and the President
on health care reform and a strong public option.
If they do not support us on this, we will never
forget, and never forgive.
If we make absolutely clear to them that we will
never support them in the future,
and oppose them whenever we can, they will have
to come along.
Let’s get the word out: It’s hammer swinging time.
LMW - flaw in the plan.
Our Democrats don't know how to fight - even
after you show them.
They ONLY time they take up arms is to fight each other.
Then the winner lets the Rethugs roll them, rob them and rape them.

Excerpt: For much of the last forty years, ever since
America "fixed" its race problem in the Civil Rights
and Voting Rights Acts, we white people have
been impatient with African Americans who continued
to blame race for their difficulties. Often we
have heard whites ask, "When are African Americans finally
going to get over it? Now I want to ask: "When
are we White Americans going to get over our ridiculous
obsession with skin color?
Recent reports that "Election Spurs Hundreds'
of Race Threats, Crimes" should frighten and infuriate
every one of us. Having grown up in "Bombingham,"
Alabama in the 1960s, I remember overhearing an
avalanche of comments about what many white classmates
and their parents wanted to do to John and
Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Eventually,
someone decided to do more than "talk the talk."
Since our recent presidential election, we are
once again hearing the same reprehensible talk
"The conservative voice isn't being well-represented.

I deffinately here the N-word here in Kentucky
alot. I used to play in a regular Friday nite poker game.
One time I was trying to get this guy to vote
Dem. He stated that he voted for the repubs "because all the niggers
voted for the Dems".
This was pre-Obama. This guy is a collage graduate
from U.of K (civil engineer) AND registered Democrat.
Recient poll had 51% here did not believe/ were
not sure Obama was a U.S. citizen.

Remember we talked about Poker After Dark with the small betting
and the crazy $50K side bets on each flop?
That changed in big way when we got to Thursday and Friday - they went
This one new, young player Ilari Shamies was getting "hit in the head
by the deck." (That's good.)
He'd get AA, then AK, then JJ, and he was rainging $30, $50K $90K each
Once Ilari (which sounds like Hillary) had nothing, bluffed a $50K bet,
then Phil Ivey,
the Tiger Woods of Poker (Make me f-ing gag!) came back
and raised it to $150K
There was a couple of all-ins for $200K or more - and this is real
money. When you watch World Poker Tour or the World Series,
those are chips.
Hard to believe this was the same timid bunch who stuck to $3K and
$5K bets earlier.
I thought sure when these young punks went up against the old pros,
they'd get smoked - I was wrong.
These kids have played more hands than the pros because they're online
and they play 4 hands at a time
and they never have to wait for a game. Tom Dwan, who's 21 or
22, has played more hands than Doyle.
Funny story: In 1971 or so, Dayle was playing in the WSOP when he saw TV cameras
so he bolted.
He couldn't afford for his friends and neighbors to know he was a professional
He told people he taught school - it was unseemly to be a poker
player back then.
Sidebar: We don't watch Celebrity Apprentice, but in their last season,
pro Annie Duke was on with Joan Rivers,
and Rivers kept saying, "You're a poker
player!" as if she was calling her the C-word.
Rivers called Duke, "Worse than Hitler,"
but a professional poker player knows to let that slide.
They say Duke would've beat Rivers, but the winner was decided by Trump
and he decided
he could make more money letting Joan Rivers win than someone who was,
These days, they sometimes bet more than the value of Casa de Bart
on each card.
Can you imaginbe workling 30 years to pay off your mortage and then
watch some punk kid

Ain't no shame in that kind of work if you can get it.
We all know that Barack Obama is bullshitting
someone. He's either completely serious about the progressive
policy changes he promised during the elections,
and he's jerking Republican leg with his "reach for bipartisanship",
or he's misleading the left. Something happened
this week that exposed his soul.
Earlier this week Jimmy Carter told a known and
absolute truth that Republican hate for Obama is, at least in part, racism.
Denying the blatantly obvious, Obama disagreed
with him! He instead suggested his honorable Republican opponents (ha ha
are above racism and would never stoop so low!
Of course, the racist Right knew he was full of shit in defending them,
and Obama knew we'd all know it too. So why?
Why lie when doing so would actually help the
racist Right defend themselves against charges of racism?
... to help prevent racism from becoming
more visible and more popular. When GOP leaders publicly deny being racist
they admit that racism is wrong. Their denials
show that being racist is an embarrassingly shameful thing to be.
Barack fibbed to force racists to show that racism
is wrong and socially unacceptable, thereby tamping it down.
Jimmy Carter forced these scum to deny hating
black people, and Barack gleefully stamped their claims CONFIRMED!
I'll bet they planned it!
If Obama is using the same level of intelligence
in other similarly confusing situations, ones in which his words and deeds
don't completely mesh with his purported intentions,
perhaps he does have a chance at a successful Presidency.
We need to support this man through the good
and bad. Attacking him without knowing his plan would be self-defeating.
You know how much we complain about American
idiots who work against themselves, and perhaps we do so ourselves.
I had the same idea.
He's eaither divorced from reality or he's building a trap for the
