People Who Should Be Disenfranchised

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 10:04 pm

Anyone who wants to ban “junk guns” and “assault rifles,” and opposes “tax cuts for the rich,” but objects to Sarah Palin’s reference to “death panels.” Sauce, goose, gander, etc.

Advantage: Race-Baiters

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 8:15 pm

I still think it’s absurd to cry “racism” over opposition to Obama’s idiotic policies, but will grant the race baiters this much: anyone who opposes Obama more strongly than Carter may well be a racist after all.

Not sure that going from ACORN’s point man to a guy who’s barely heard of the organization and had no idea that they get a lot of money from the federal government is exactly the kind of change his supporters envisioned, but YMMV.

No State Business With ACORN

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 4:24 pm

First, the good news. The headline reads:

Gov. Perdue to state: Don’t do business with ACORN

Now, the bad: the article is from Georgia, not North Carolina.

Then again, if you’re from Georgia, it’s all good.

Good News, of Sorts

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 11:32 pm

Per FoxNews, it appears that only a bare majority of Obama supporters acknowledge that it’s possible for others to oppose Obama’s policies without being racist. At least, that’s how I interpret their finding that “only” 20% think opposition to Obama’s socialist policies at home, or his downright idiotic ones abroad, are motivated primarily by racism. It seems a pretty safe bet that very few, if any, of the 20% who attribute opposition to Obamacare to racism are among the 56% who oppose it themselves. As fun as it would be to hear from the guy who says “Yup, I oppose socialize medicine, but only because the President is half*black, and intend to start supporting it just as soon as the next white President advocates it instead,” I just don’t see that happening on a grand scale (or if it does, then only because the respondents are being wise-asses).

*Am I the only one who finds the “half black” meme tiresome? Obama isn’t “half black,” he’s half African. Big difference, as most black Africans have no European blood, while most black Americans do. Obama only sticks out because his parents, rather than his great great grandparents, were the ones to do the mixing.

Wilson to Eat Crow?

Turns out Obama doesn’t want socialized medicine for illegal aliens after all. That, after all, would require there to be such a thing as an illegal alien.

Advice to Massachusetts

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 10:54 pm

Instead of playing games with your law every five years, why not just enact a new law stating that the governor can appoint an interim Senator if the governor is a Democrat, and there will be a special election if the governor is a Republican? Or, better still, just allow the last Democrat governor to appoint every time?

This Just In

Not all stupid criminals work(ed) for ACORN.

Googlebait

Sorry, hun, but the McCainiacs have taken you for a ride. There are no photos of Hannah Giles nude. Any web site purporting to tell you otherwise is a leftist site or a malware site, but I repeat myself.

Kanye the Jackass

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 11:11 pm

Apparently, some think it was un-Presidential of Barack Obama to call Kanye West a jackass in an off the record interview. I tend to agree. Real Presidents call him a jackass on the record. Maybe BHO can redeem himself by working it into the SOTU address or something. That said, I am enjoying this rare moment of national unity. I mean, seriously, does anyone – West included – not think the guy is a jackass?
