But of course. Massachusetts is racist.

January 20, 2010

The only explanation for yesterday’s victory by Scott Brown in the Massachusetts senate race is RAAAAACISM!!! It must be. Keith Olbermann* and Howard Fineman issued this piece of brilliant analysis on Olbermann’s MSNBC show last night:

OLBERMANN: The Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens tonight with Scott Brown tonight, whether he wins or comes close, is a repudiation of Obama policies, and surely one of Obama’s policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is that it’s okay to have this sea change in American history, to have an African-American President. Is this vote to any degree just a euphemism the way state’s rights was in the 60s?

FINEMAN: Wow, that is a good question.

No, Howard, that’s a lousy question. Because it’s not even a real question. It’s an accusation and a smear dressed up as a question in order to fool the listener into thinking there’s some serious intelligence behind it, much like a prosecutor asks a leading question in order to get the answer he wants. It’s an insult to the people of Massachusetts, who voted for our African-American president by a large majority just 14 months ago.  Do you and Keith really want us to think they suddenly woke up yesterday morning and slapped themselves on the head when they realized “Oh, my God! We put a Darky in the White House?” It’s also an insult to conservatives across the nation because it says we support federalism and limited government because we really, secretly, in our deepest, most bigoted heart of hearts want to wear hoods and sheets and burn crosses to keep the Blacks “in their place.”

Oh, and for the record, the sheet-and-hood guys were Democrats.

No wonder Olbermann’s ratings are in the tank and no one reads Newsweak Newsweek anymore.

By the way, driving a truck is also a sign of racism. It’s obvious. I’m surprised everyone doesn’t know this, including my Black neighbor who drives a Ford F-150!

It would take race-detectives Keith and Howie only a moment to deduce he’s a self-hating Uncle Tom.

And some people take these clowns seriously?

*(I first ran across Keith when he was a lousy sportscaster here in Southern California. It’s nice to see he hasn’t changed.)

That was fast, though you knew it was coming: the latest Downfall parody.

I never get tired of these.  Hee hee

Massachusetts Miracle

January 16, 2010

Political campaigns these days inspire a lot of videos on YouTube; the Massachusetts senate race is just the latest.

But this one is real good:

Our video-guru Tito gives this one extra points for making good use of Massachusetts history to frame the current contest and for reminding people we have the means to resist tyrants that our ancestors lacked. Well done. Applause

The election is Tuesday. Let’s help make a miracle in Massachusetts and the nation. Let’s elect that 41st vote against liberal fascism. Go to Scott Brown’s donation page and give. You can learn more about him here.

Worst candidate ever? Check.

January 15, 2010

Really, I thought the Democrats had hit bottom with John Kerry in 2004, but that was until I’d discovered Martha Coakley, heir to Democratic nominee for Ted Kennedy’s throne the US Senate from Massachusetts. Let’s review, shall we?

  • Act as if the seat is already yours? Check.
  • Claim that the terrorists have all left Afghanistan days after a terrorist kills several CIA agents… in Afghanistan? Check.
  • Refuse to meet the voters and insult a beloved state landmark? Check.
  • Tell Catholics they shouldn’t work in emergency rooms because of their religion? In a heavily Catholic state? Check.

And, for the cherry on the sundae, trust your advertising to allies who think it’s a great idea to attack your opponent as a lackey of Wall Street in an ad using an image of the World Trade Center as the background.

I really thought Scott Brown had no chance, and Coakley may still win the election, but she may be accomplishing what was once thought to be impossible: handing a Senate seat –the one held by Ted Kennedy, no less– to a Republican in Deep Blue Massachusetts, which in turn would spell almost certain death for Kennedy’s beloved nationalized health care.

Is it possible she’s a deep-cover agent for Karl Rove? Or is she really this miserable a candidate?

ADDENDUM: Speaking of Kerry, the Democrats missed a chance in 2008 to surpass his ineptitude by failing to nominate his 2004 running-mate, John Edwards. I guarantee you, he would have been a total train wreck.

UPDATE: The hits keep coming: Rip off a corporate trademark and earn yourself a cease and desist letter? And you’re the state’s chief law-enforcement officer? Check.
