Oh, look! Not content with being just xenophobic or just racist, insane McCain-Palin supporters out to work their resentment into a frothy rage at the Republican nominees' rallies are now killing two birds with one stone.
Take the gentleman at left, who brought with him to McCain-Palin's Johnsontown, PA event a funny effigy to roast. It's a monkey named Little Hussein. Isn't that hilarious and issue-based and what politics is all about?
Click through to hear what this sugar bag sounds like while cackling.
Can't watch vids - can someone summarize? Merci and de nada.
Wow… this I did not know.. This has changed a few things I thought about Obama. Calling my race menacing.. and he wants to be the president? WOW
For all you Obama fans???
Here are some really great quotes from your hero's book?????? what kind of change do you think he really wants?
"I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER???S RACE???
???The emotion between the races could never be pure???.. the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart.???
???I ceased to advertise my mother???s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites???
Yeah his beliefs have changed..
I hope that a-holes picture gets plastered all over network news. Loved how all of his fellow repubs laughing along with him. Suprised they weren't wearing thier sheets, like all the other repubs.
Oh.. you can't discount Ayres and than blame McCain for the nuts that support him..
How about Faracon, Rev. Wright, Madonna, Lindsey Lohan and I could list a hundred more nuts that support Obama.
Really.. how about Obama's own words that the whites are menacing. He has such a checkered past.. I can't believe you can all just discount it. I am no way supporting anything negative on either side.
NotAMcCainFan - I have (and I presume others have as well) addressed your earlier post on this topic, though you made it under a different name. As you have not yet addressed it (at least not that I have seen), I vote that we don't address any further (repetitive) posts either.
By the way, #2, Come on! I agree that some of Obama's statements have a racist base, but I think there is a big difference between a few quotes and bringing a goddam stuffed Monkey to a rally.
I'm not a huge Obama fan either, but in my book, he is a hell of a lot better than the alternative.
Sorry sweetie.. I did not post the last message. I came across it yesterday. I laugh because it stopped the thread dead cold.
It was something I thought was very interesting that no one has mentiond. You can blame McCain all you want for what others say.. how about what comes out of Obamas own mouth?
Hey… did anyone see that girl who brought a Sambo to her Puff Daddy interview on that reality show? That was pretty shocking and this reminded me of it.
Oh, plus I HATE Right Wing Republicans:)
Yes.. the monkey is SICK!! They should be ashamed of themselves. It is just stupid and makes him look like an ass.
Oh, and I hate left wing dems. :o)
Yeah 12. It really is too bad you don't have a soul. Compassionate people have souls. People that care about others. Unfortunately for you, right wing racist hags have no souls, which is probably a good thing. God wants good people in heaven, not money grubbing racist bitches with no common sense.
Not sure where that came from#13. Anyone who is to any extreme is not good for this country. HENCE OBAMA. He is as far to the left as you can get. How dare you excuse me of anything. You have no idea who and what I am.
Obama is a racists. If any white person said what he did there would be hell to pay.
I'm not a huge Obama fan either, but in my book, he is a hell of a lot better than the alternative.
That is the problem. That we are forced to pick from two unqualified people.
Oh.. and when did I ever say ANYTHING racist? Hmm… I think you are confusing me with the guy you are voting for sweetie.
I'm not "excusing" you at all.
Cut out the passive-agressive "sweetie" crap. If your points aren't valid without patronising those you're talking to, then they simply aren't valid. Stick up for your beliefs without feeling the need to belittle others.
Oh, and as to where it came from? Well, I am not a kum-by-ah liberal. I fight back bullys. That's what you are. A bully, trying to take all your hate on everyone else. Why don't you take your hate, shove it up your (I'm sure) fat ass, and get OFF THIS THREAD!
@ NotAMcCainFan - please don't call me sweetie. It's patronizing, and it doesn't help to engage in intelligent discussion.
It didn't stop the thread cold - I responded, and there was no reply. Also, it may be prudent to create your own posts, if in fact you didn't post the original. It will help to make you distinct from other posters.
Oh. That was for number 14.
The guy who brought the monkey should be ashamed of himself. I don't think he liked being filmed with it, why else would he take the Obama sticker off and give it to that kid. At least the kid got a new toy out of it.
People..People..stop looking for a savior. We are supposed to have the power…GOVERNMENT CONTROL HAS WENT FROM 2% to 40%. Stop the madness. Stop submitting our liberties to freaks who have no interest in anything but lining their own pockets. Look for ethics in your leaders, look for humanism, look for NO CORPORATE LOBBYISTS sticking their grubby, dirty, criminal fingers into their pockets. Demand someone not obsessed with empire building. Look for someone who can stand up to the interests of Israel taking prevalence over our own.
The same corporations are depositing into both McCain and Obama. There is no difference!!! REPUBLOCRATS!! Nothing will change.
@ Caroline - I don't think anyone is looking for a savior. I think that people are looking for someone that will at least TRY to head down the right path. Clearly, there are overwhelming issues with our current sense of democracy and the electoral system. I don't think that anyone on either side would dispute that. For some, it's a "lesser of two evils" situation. For others, it's having a sense of hope, even through all of the shenanigans and ridiculousness. Regardless of which candidate someone supports, they should feel as though they represent their interests, and the best interests of the country moving forward.
The terrifying thing (to me, at least) is that people are making judgements based on false information and fear…again, this is probably happening on both sides. I may be a small-l liberal, but I don't have a problem with small-c conservatives…assuming, of course, that they have an articulate position based on facts, and they really feel that a candidate from that side of the spectrum is best qualified for the position.
That said, I have a difficult time understanding how ANYONE would see Palin as a symbol of hope for a troubled nation, in a troubled world, in troubled times. That is my personal viewpoint.
(I don't know if your #20 comment is for me, Captain Obvious– if it is, I know, I was talking to NotAMcCainFan too).
Speaking as a Spaniard who is quite justifiably interested in the US elections, one question: has there been any media focus on Andy Martin, the crooked lawyer in charge of the FreeRepublic site? He's quite big news today in Europe for his outing as the responsible for most of the slanders against Barack Obama. If you're a Spanish speaker, check out this article from the most important newspaper in Spain: http://www.elpais.com/articulo.....uint_8/Tes
I can translate into English if anyone is interested. If it's old news, sorry for hijacking the thread.
@ nene - my Spanish is crap, and I think a lot is being lost in my (crappy) translation. Would you mind posting it in English, if you have the time?
For someone who says they're not a McCain fan you sure seem to be. I could care less who you vote for as long as you vote. Everyone has a right to their opinion and that doesn't make any of us right. We pick the person who comes closest to our own beliefs and hope they do the right thing.
If you want to vote for McCain then vote for him, but don't say you're not a fan. Thats like me saying I don't like bacon. Lord knows I love me some bacon, and your post seem to indicate you like McCain.
I have to go out for a few hours, so if you respond to this and I don't reply right away don't take it as a victory, I'm just away from my computer.
Paperback Writer..maybe if the Republicans and Democrats didn't have a choke hold on the debates they could be open and Americans wouldn't have to make a "lesser of two evils" decision. The Commission on Presidential debates sets strict limitations on what questions can be asked, when the debates are, and who is in them. They know that if one of the forward thinking, more honest third party candidates got up their America might wake up.
Another fun factoid, the Commission on Presidential Debates is supported by CORPORATIONS..including Budweiser..thus the reason so many debates happen in St. Louis and that the people surveyed after the debates are sitting in a room with beer memorabilia. I hate this version of America.
Sure, I'll find the time! But it's quite a lengthy article, is it ok to post in the comments section? I don't want to block-spam Mollygood without even bothering to talk about Tall Dating Clubs ;) I can e-mail it to you if you like, or try to post it somewhere else and post the link here afterwards.
@Caroline. Good God. After reading your post, I need a Xanax. Thanks for brightening the day.
All of my comments were for notamccainfan. Sorry if anybody else thought it was for them.
yeah, nothing might change with Obama. I know he is a politician, and reeks of lobbyist's money. However, McCain's health care plan is just plain scary, and I really don't want the world to end at the hands of a former pagaent beauty moose hunter that presses the big red nuke button than says "Well gosh golly, I thought that was the intercom. Joe sixpack isn't going to like this one bit".
somewhere sometime this guy's name will be outed and perhaps he will face some sort of physically harmless retaliation–hopefully (and I do mean this) nothing serious but enough to cause him some serious embarrassment.
I don't wish ill will or violence towards people but sometimes karma has to work its way through.
The man brought a monkey. Serously.
Hey, NotAMcCain fan, maybe check out Snopes or try using Google for independant verification:
Sigh. Come on people.
Jemms…smoke a bowl instead..wouldn't want your need to escape to fund the dirty pharmy companies!:)
@ nene - I'm hesitant to post my email on here, and I don't have a blog to link to…I'm not sure about posting a lengthy translation here, I guess it depends on how long it is?
A bowl sounds SOOOOOO good right now. I even have chips at my desk.
Does it ever Captain Obvious…what kind of chips? My munch preference are sun chips harvest cheddar…scrumptious.
No probs, I'll upload it somewhere. I'll give you a heads-up when I have it ready (probably tomorrow). Glad to be able to collaborate.
Also, I wish your delicious commonwealth chips were available here… There's no way to get a tasty snack in this country! Reading the MG comments makes me hungry.
@ nene - appreciated. Generally speaking, media coming from outside of the US tends to offer a different spin on things. Canadian media even has different things to say than that of the US, but I'm sure ours is unduly influenced as well.
I try to read news sources from a few different regions every day. It's shocking what things are/aren't covered in different areas.
Sun chip rock, but I have Frito Lay Wavy Ranch on my desk today. Would go great with a yoohoo and Jamaican Gold Bud perhaps?
You guys are killing me with all the stoner talk…yikes…I still have an afternoon to go at work! Mean, mean people.
Do you have any idea how ignorant you sound to the rest of us in here?
So then, nobody saw the show?
@ Stoney - he seems to have left…weirdness.
We haven't even begun to discuss the egregious use of "Life is a Highway".
oh and stoney, my darlin' dear, please don't include me in your classification of "us", mkthx.
@ killorn - what the hell is happening in this vid? I can't watch it at work, and now I hear that Tom Cochrane's classic tune is misused? That isn't good news.
thanks, killorn. I really appreciate your support. It's Monday, I didn't sleep well last night, I'm working on a holiday and now I have a gyno appointment. Maybe I'll just go blow my head off.
Stoney, this is exactly why I requested to unsubscribe to your generalization.
@paperback - I am afraid that the only "classic" list that LIAH shows up on for me is the "classically awful", right behind "What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes and "Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles. Those songs instantly make me have to poop.
If your an Obama fan or not, things are getting pretty messy for Obama. Tony Rezco is starting to talk to the Feds. Not only is Rezco implicating the IL govenor, but he may be squeeling about Obama and Obama's ties to the Giannoulias family. This is not good.
Oh, c'mon Killorn - it's not classic as in "oh my lord, this is the best song ever", but it's classic in the "oh my lord, everyone here knows this and now we need to drink more beer".
You HAVE to admit that! Also, Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'", Kim Mitchell's "Patio Lanterns", White Snake's "Here I Go Again".
So bad that it's good. In a classic way.
Black Velvet is universally poop inspiring, though.
Don't Stop Believin' falls into the classic "I can win the big match AND get the girl category". LIAH just makes me want to drink lite beer out of a bottle shaped like a bowling pin and lose my virginity in the back of a Jeep Cherokee to a thick-necked blonde who never removes his dirty white Seminoles baseball cap.
NotaMcCainfan: You have received false information, most likely from the latest smear email attack. The first quote — "I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER???S RACE" — does not appear anywhere in either of Obama's book. It is completely fabricated.
Similar quotes have been distorted and/or taken out of context. Please visit this site for the FULL quotation, which will dramatically change your interpretation of those passages.
@ Killorn - did you read my diary? How did you know the details of my deflowering?
killorn, if life is a highway… well, then i want to ride it all. night. long.
yes, i am now listening to that tom cochrane song. woot!
@ mae - another 'good' Cochrane tune is "Wish You Well". Horribly horrible, but yet wickedly awesome.
I should be were listening to any of these selections. Lil Jon's "What U Goin Do (ft Scrappy)" is on my internet radio and it's -uh, less than appealing.
I should be were. That's right. (grooooan)
What this guy did was just disgusting. And I wonder just how he feels now that his face is plastered all over the Internet. To the onlookers that laughed, they're just as guilty. This election has reached an all time new low!
And to #14, What the hell are you talking about? I don't believe that I've ever seen Obama or his supporters carrying torches as they carry white teddy bears with McCain stickers over their heads. Maybe you should pick up a paper and see what's really going on, hmm?
What he did was in very poor taste. Also alot of Obama's supporters are the same. I have seen many T-Shirts stating Palin is a cunt. It's funny how none of these "reporters" see that.
Wait, you can get a Palin Is A Cunt t-shirt?!
I can't push play.
I'm so tired of this crap. Douchebaggery.
Wake me up if I fall asleep face down in my bowl of scotch so I don't drown.
Death by scotch drowning. I can think of worse ways to go.
then don't wake me :)
I think "NotAMcCain Fan" will be this week's "Matt."
Mark my words, the paid trolls will be out in force this week, under different handles in different threads, misspelling and talking out of their collective ass in mock offense.
Yes, they all share one.
@UpChuck: If you find the link to the Palin shirts, please do us all a favor and post it. I'll buy one for each member of my family.
Nothing surprises me anymore in this election. I think it's getting nearly impossible to feel any more offended by half-wits like this guy.
I just can't believe that people like this guy let themselves get filmed and think nobody's going to notice. Even Reba Rae's keeping quiet on this one. Like I said before, there's a serious epidemic of The Dumb going around.
I think the guy was embarrassed w/the camera on him that long and realized it was a 'mistake'. It was a bad idea and the camera on him that long did some work on his head, I think.
BTW, do they have permission from the band to play LIFE IS A HIGHWAY?
Well if he was doing something he would be embarrassed by, why did he do it in the first place? Seems to me he was embarrassed ONLY once he was on camera. At least if he's going to be a prick he should have the balls to stand up for what he believes if he really believes it. I think what the guy did was more than just "bad taste." I hope having his face plastered all over the Internet brings him some much needed humility.
Mary, there have been several artists, from Bon Jovi to the Foo Fighters, who've asked the McCain campaign to stop using their music at rallies. Someone should let Tom Chochrane know about this, if he hasn't already heard.
I have a funny feeling that Tommy Cochrane wouldn't approve the use of his tune.
Maybe if they paid for the rights with weed.
Wow, American presidential nominees sure love their crappy Canadian musicians. They probably asked McCain to pick a current song for his campaign, and relatively speaking, 1991 is practically yesterday!
Hey now, no need to turn some good ol' politician bashing into Canadian musician bashing! The only ones that deserve the wrath of many are Nickelback. They make me want to cut my ears off and step on them.
p_w, what about Michael Buble? I like his band more than I like him at this point, but I get bashed for liking him all the time.
"I have seen many T-Shirts stating Palin is a cunt. It's funny how none of these "reporters" see that."
What's also funny is that McCain calling his wife a cunt in public wasn't publicized by "reporters".
My God! Where can I get one of those T-shirts em? I want one so badly!
I will, of course, black out the u-n-t. I have class. Everybody will get the hint.
Obama and his fans need to stop using racism as a crutch.
I seem to recall countless images of President Bush being comparied to a chimp, over and over again.
But someone brings a chimp labled Obama to a rally then he is being a racist and a bigot.
A world without history and context is a world missing half the picture.
Tell me, Matt, after watching the video, do you honestly, in your heart of hearts, think that man with the Curious George doll didn't mean to be racist, or was unaware of the implication?
Why would a curious george doll imply racism? Why dont YOU tell me?
Matt, you claim to be a smart guy with a good education.
I seriously doubt that you don't understand why it could be perceived as racist.
then again, since you think that Obama is coming for the white man, maybe you don't.
Matt just wants to feign ignorance and hide behind that facade of his. I don't think you need any explaining on this subject. You can't start an argument here my friend.
You all are a bunch of racist. If you think that the way to win a campaign is to use race as the issue then you all suck. So many people today are mixed with black, white and hispanic blood. YOu all won't vote for Obama because he is black I won't vote for McCain or the trailer park trash because they are racist and crazy and McCain is so old he can't even focus long enough to tell you all what he is going to do for this country. Sounds like dementia to me.
Who is the you in "you are all a bunch of racist."
If you're referring to the commentors on this thread, you're confused.
