The Morning Quote

Meet Nevada Assembly Speaker-elect Ira Hansen as he tells us one more thing he knows about the negro:

In an attack on public education and teacher unions, Hansen wrote, “The Democratic coalition would split asunder if the NAACP & co. actually promoted what black Americans truly desire—educational choice. The shrewd and calculating [black] ’leaders’ are willing to sacrifice the children of their own race to gratify their lust for power and position. The relationship of Negroes and Democrats is truly a master-slave relationship, with the benevolent master knowing what’s best for his simple minded darkies. For American blacks, being denied choice and forced to attend the failing and inferior government school system is a form of involuntary servitude. Let’s call it what it truly is—educational slavery.”

He seems nice.

The President’s Immigration Speech

No Amenty teabagger

You can watch the speech at 8PM eastern at the White House website.

And I’m sure you can watch the reaction to it on the networks, 100% of whom refused to carry it. Here’s a preview of the reaction:

“But if we’re funding everything he wants except for certain items that are his little pet piece or saying, like, we’re not going to fund any more golf outings or any more trips, vacations where he and his family travel on different planes. Just things in America go, really Mr. President, you can keep the government running and yet you’re the one saying, ‘No I want my golf outings, I want my czar for this and my czar for that,’ really, you will shut down the government over that?”

Screwie Louie threatening to shut down the gubmint over golf.

Republican Diversity!

Not all GOPers are racist. But if you are a racist, you're probably a GOPer.

Also/too: they claim that a Portuguese American isn’t a white guy, so they got that workin’ for them.

Some Fries With Your Stupid?

DALLAS, Nov. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Board of Directors of the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) has named Allen B. West as CEO of the 31-year old nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy think tank.

I did not think I would live long enough to see the name Allen West and the phrase Think Tank would be in the same sentence

“I am humbled and honored to have this opportunity to lead one of the country’s preeminent think tanks,” said West. “I have long admired the NCPA’s innovative research in health care, tax reform, entitlements, retirement, energy, environmental and education policy.”

So what’s their stance on torture, Col. West?

The NRO (the most intellectually dishonest rest-stop on the information superhighway) offers some advice to the triumphant incoming Wingnuttia class of 2014:

Already a conventional wisdom about what Republicans should do next has congealed. Supposedly it is up to Republicans to “prove they can govern” even though they do not have the White House. Senator Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) told NPR listeners that Republicans could do this by moving on trade-promotion authority, the immigration bill the Senate passed in 2013, and corporate tax reform.

With all due respect to the senator and like-minded Republicans, this course of action makes no sense as a political strategy. First: While trade-promotion authority and a tax reform that includes (but is not limited to) corporations are good ideas, voters are not, in fact, waiting anxiously for any of this. Business lobbies are. The Republican party should not pursue an agenda that is identical to theirs.

… But not much progress is possible until we have a better president. Getting one ought to be conservatism’s main political goal over the next two years.

Shorter NRO: “Do nothing.”
