Un-Fucking-Believable


This is low. Even for Murdoch and his cronies:

The New York Post is in trouble, since they just published the most racist cartoon I’ve seen in my lifetime (and directed at the president, to boot!).

Amazingly enough, I think Sharpton’s tone is quite measured in his response:

Being that the stimulus bill has been the first legislative victory of President Barack Obama … and has become synonymous with him, it is not a reach to wonder: are they inferring that a monkey wrote the last bill?… The Post should at best clarify what point they were trying to make, or in fact reprimand their cartoonist.

That’s it??? Dammit, man, where’s your outrage??? Has Obama already lifted our hopes (and our level of national discourse) so high that blatant and horrifying racism doesn’t bother us as much as it used to??? Call me crazy (the voices in my head sure do), but I think this may be possible.

Take, for example, Michele Bachmann’s latest sermon on the mount, in which she not only claims our nation is run by Socialists (we already know how much she wants to reinstate McCarthyist witch trials within Congress, so this part ain’t news), but complains that, “We’re running out of rich people in this country.”

Normally, I’d go on a rant about this, outraged at her implications that (a) rich people are somehow more important than the filthy proletariat over whose bloated and stinking corpses they’re forced to step each morning, and (b) she herself is not well off. I was surprised, though, to find myself giggle when I read this. I then went to grab some milk and cookies, watch a “Flight of the Conchords” (incredibly enough, about how evil Aussies are…hahaha, Rupert, you’re descended from criminals), and hit the sack. But I honestly felt no anger at the time. No bewildered and horrified fury. Just amusement at the GOP’s staggeringly misguided attempts to find their voice and their way, now that they are confronted with the fact that their majority was neither permanent nor popular.

Is this what the GOP has been feeling the last 8 years? No wonder they were always so relaxed…

    This only reveals the mind’s of those who would see a racist behind every bush or tree. President Obama doesn’t write bills…he did NOT write this bill and the cartoon was not about him, it was referring to Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives (where all bills originate!) if anyone would bother to read something other than a bold-faced headline on someone’s blog.

    I’m not sure what you think is so absurd about Keyes statements?

    Have you seen a copy of Obama’s birth certificate because no one else has…and now it’s been sealed by the AG of Hawaii so no one can see it. That doesn’t sound like “open government” to me. How about you?

    Do you deny that the Fed printed and the government borrowed 2 trillion dollars in the first 90 days of the administration?

    So far, as of July 5th, 2009 over 2.5 million jobs have evaporated, GM and Chrysler are both in bankruptcy court after wasting close to 50 billion dollars in bailout money. Bear Stearns is belly up, as well as Merrill Lynch and several other huge firms…but not the one that has fed all of the recent Sec of Treasury. I wonder WHY???

    The USA is going broke before our eyes…Keyes is DEAD ON.
