Some Fries With Your Stupid?

Don Surber, who is the Charleston Daily Mail’s lone editorial columnist, writing in his personal blog:

“This summer I had an epiphany as I watched packs of racists riot in Ferguson, Missouri, in support of a gigantic thug who was higher than a kite when he attacked Ferguson Police Department Officer Darren Wilson, who unfortunately had to put this animal down.”

Which led to the inevitable apology:

“I made a factual error. Michael Brown was not an animal but a man. Big. Brutal. High. His death was a justifiable homicide and not a putting down.”

Some Stupid For Your Coffee?

Hebephrenic TeeVee Dinner heir and vanity press owner Tucker Carlson tells us that it’s obvious that black teens make a neighborhood dangerous, but that he would never admit that on the air.

Hey Reince, How’s That Rebranding Working For Ya?

Old habits are hard to break for Republicans:

Brought to us by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Macaca, Revisited

Georg_Allen_Award.jpg

The GOP cannot seem to help themselves, and so today we learn how to spot campaign trackers (you know, the people who trail a candidate looking for gaffes and whatnot). This was the moment that destroyed Republican George Allen’s political career when he used the racial epithet Macaca when pointing out his trailer.

Anyway, without further a-do, here’s a lesson in spotting a campaign trailer brought to us courtesy of Republican congressional candidate Carl DeMaio (CA):

1. Young-red flag
2. black-red flag
3. young at saturday morning event-HUGE red flag
4. Very curious and want to talk to staff a a lot-red flag

So in a nutshell, GOP candidates should be wary if anyone at their campaign events are young or people of color. In other words, anyone other than old, white guys are suspicious.

Repeat after me, “How’s that rebranding coming, Reince?”

To his credit, DeMaio told his staff to drop the black.

It Would Be Irresponsible Not To [Speculate]!

Remember when Senate Majority Leader Dr. Bill Frist diagnosed Terri Schiavo using a video tape? Well, it seems that he started something as Fox News resident psychological consultant (who may or may not be certified (!) and licensed to practice), Keith Ablow has diagnosed The Kenyan Usurper without ever meeting the fiend:

The Fox News contributor also veered into racial territory when attacking the president. When asked why Obama wouldn’t impose a travel ban on flights from Africa, Ablow responded that Obama’s “affinities, his affiliations are with them. Not us. That’s what people seem unwilling to accept. He’s their leader … we don’t have a president.” He added: “We don’t have a president who has the American people as his primary interest.”

It probably made more sense in the original German.

There are a lot of sound clips you can listen to at Media Matters, and it is really strange, deranged commentary, like the fever dreams of D’Vorce D’Spousa claiming that Obama suffers from anti-colonialism (or whatever that racist nonsense was) on which he built his fledgling movie and publishing career.

Some Stupid For Your Coffee?

“I can honestly say I have not had one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag.”

–Rumored blogger-banging (eww, gross!) South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley tells us why she doesn’t need to remove the Confederate Flag from the statehouse.

I Wonder If The CDC Has Considered This?

This is a Tweet from the previously famous for sexting his very short comings (if you know what I mean and I think you do) former SC GOP Director Todd Kincannon:

I’m waiting for him to call in the airstrike on on the village of Dallas, Texas.

Anyway, if you take a look at his Twitter Stream, you’ll also see that he offers some solid advice to Africans: stop eating each other and learn some calculus.

Again, Reince, I worry for the Rebranding.

“He didn’t enforce the laws on Obamacare,” Tantaros said. “He was droning terrorists without a trial while he was giving them trials in downtown Manhattan. He ran the DOJ much like the Black Panthers would. That is a fact.”

Dropouts Today

(TowleRoad)

Hey guys, remember that time when we reported about Jacob Dorsey, a 19-year-old candidate challenging Democratic state Rep. Deb Kolste? You know, the kid who apologized for referring to gay people as “fags” in a tweet:

“I regret using unacceptable and hurtful language on social media last year.

I am a staunch supporter of traditional marriage, but the language I used is not in keeping with my character, family values and Christian upbringing.”

He’s dropped out of his race, but he’s got some more apologizing to do.

(TPM)

As we said before, “Sonny, I think you displayed your character, values, and upbringing perfectly.”

Hey Reince, How’s That Re-Branding Workin’ Out?

The Klan Goes To Church

The Klan Goes To Church

Earlier in the day, [Republican Georgia state Sen. Fran Millar] posted a statement criticizing the county’s interim CEO, Lee May, for allowing early voting on Oct. 26, a Sunday, at several polling places in DeKalb County, including one at South DeKalb Mall.

“Per Jim Galloway of the AJC, this location is dominated by African American shoppers and it is near several large African American mega churches such as New Birth Missionary Baptist,” Millar wrote.

And then later he clarified what he meant (though I think it was pretty clear):

“I would prefer more educated voters than a greater increase in the number of voters,” state Sen. Fran Millar (R) wrote on his Facebook page. “If you don’t believe this is an efort [sic] to maximize Democratic votes pure and simple, then you are not a realist. This is a partisan stunt and I hope it can be stopped.”

Oh. I thought those Jim Crow era poll taxes and quizzes were a thing of the past and is why the Fab 5 of the Supreme Court struck down those parts of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Anyway, Mr. Galloway thoughtfully concluded thusly:

“I defined educated as being informed on the issues,” Millar wrote. “Finally Mr. Porter is welcome to look at my DeKalb NAACP award, so don’t try to accuse me of trying to suppress the African-American vote.”

Because you know that having an award from the NAACP is a Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card that protects you from accusations of racism. It worked for the former L.A. Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling, too.

So Reince, once again I must ask: How’s that rebranding working out?
