Oh ho ho boy did Mitt Romney step in it now!
Oh man! Did you get that? He wants to hang Barack Obama....from a tree....while wearing starched bed sheets. Yup, that's what he said!
Orwell.....I mean....Or, well, what I mean is I saw this Huffington Post story, and then I saw these tweets posted at Legal Insurrection, then I put 2 and 2 together and kept coming up with 5....which is how it felt...and 4 out of 5 public school teachers can't be wrong!
I'm not surprised by this at all, he hails from Massachusetts a state that gave us Barney Frank. That guy is so racist that when picking a minority status he decided he'd rather be gay.
So here's my modest proposal, lets just completely destroy the word "hang." By "lets" I mean "me." You don't even have to do anything. I plan on doing it singlehandedly by taking the following:
Don't Leave Me
By my count that is 12 terms or parts of words/terms that use "hang" or "hanging" in it. I'm going to adopt 12 black children from Africa, and each of them are going to be named one of these 12 terms. Then, anytime anyone uses the "harmless" (but WE know better) slang they are associated with I'm going to make them regret they were ever born...because I'm going to tweet about it.
Am I overreacting to this? Um, no! I think Mitt Romney is under-reacting to his racist tendencies. Remember people, denial is the first sign you have a problem, and Mitt has only admitted (clearly) that he is sensitive to how people might perceive his problem.
Oh, by the way, don't worry about me actually getting 12 African kids, I've been searching for a long time for an excuse to wear take this shirt there...
See Mitt? There's a silver lining in every cloud!
Man, this post would give me Greek philosopher status, if only this were a liberal blog. Alas, I'm not a card carrying member of the Pee Wee Herman "I know you are but what am I" wing of American politics.

Half black, half white, his heart is in Europe and everything about him stinks.....
If you don't see it click the image for the reveal :-)
If for some reason THAT doesn't work (as I've been informed) then click here
So THIS is how he was going to get out of it...
Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump unleashed an f-bomb-laced attack on President Obama and Washington politics Thursday night during a speech that likely won't help him win the family-values vote should he decide to run for president.
More at Fox News
Remember the fit we had when Biden dropped one? I repeat...ONE f-bomb! And he's just the punch in the face that's supposed to make us forget how crappy Obama is.
This display of asshattery is a clear sign that he is trying to whip people up and suddenly look infinitely (and intentionally) undesirable to even the most glassy eyed Trump stumpers out there.
This is the exit stage left he needs to quell the cynics who always see through the fact that this man never does anything that doesn't promote something that's tattooed Trump. He made waves about Obama to help himself.
Could I be wrong about all of this, you betcha! But do you think McDonald's employees get hired dropping f-bombs in their interviews?
The only mitigating factor in this is that he called our leaders "stupid." Yeah, he might as well have said water is wet. But that does help keep his potential street team tethered to him.
Also, I'm no English major, but if he includes Biden in that statement then I'm pretty sure that's a double negative, and he should be thrown in grammar jail. Maybe even solitary confinement, so he and that hair of his can think about the ridiculousness of what they've done.
And if there's any time left after that he can dwell on the double negative stuff too.Add a comment
I haven't done any Haikus in a while, so why not pick a topic I couldn't care less about?
The Royal Wedding
Obama didn't go 'cuz

Now that the birth certificate has been lifted from his shoulders what can the president tackle next?
10. Even though it has been shown to all, he still needs to read it out loud to the last remaining skeptic, Vice President Biden.
9. Now that he's convinced most people birth certificate is real, and his citizenship is real, he can devote his energy exclusively to faking his patriotism.
8. Establish a Facebook "Can Obama's birth certificate score more points than his jump shot?" page.
7. Work on damage control with despondent liberals who thought birth certificates can't be given to divinity.
6. "Ok , Israel, I showed you mine, now you show me your right to be here, or so help me All......ahhhhhhhhhhahahaha.....ha.......oopsie!"
5. Prove Michelle is qualified to combat childhood obesity by disclosing her artificial butt implants to the right-wing Girther movement.
4. Conduct a scientific study to determine to what degree did birthers cause global warming.
3. It doesn't matter how much Trump asks, the only proof of a college education Obama will be willing to show anyone is his handling of the economy.
2. Send a "thank you" gift basket to Adobe.
1. Direct his staffers to start Photoshopping his budget.Add a comment
Here's another fantastic video from Oliver Darcy, the man behind the video shared here showing students refusing to allow their higher GPA's to be redistributed to student who need them.
Now he poses the question if GOP spending cuts are out of the question would they be willing to simply pay their share of the national debt and be done with it?
The reactions are typical of liberals, but when he asks them what we should do to bring down the debt the answers are astounding.
"It's not my debt"
Wow. It actually kind of is. Their side created the entitlements that have led us not only to this point, but also to tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities. It's their side that is doing the same thing at the state level promising the world to public employee unions.
These liberals are voting for the politicians who are making those dominos fall, and its not their f**king debt?!? Public debt belongs to ALL OF US!
I apologize for using profanity this post, I know I've used it a lot in other posts too, yet I rarely seek forgivness for saying "liberal."
I know their response to this...we saw it with that one goony looking kid who said we should "fix" the debt by gutting military spending and then transfer it to "social welfare." How THAT fixes the debt will be something I leave to science fiction, but it belies the point that they think the tens of trillions we owe in social welfare can simply be offset by taxing the rich (whose net worth can't even cover the deficit), and eliminating the military (which doesn't make sense if they just want to put that money in to social programs that will be disbanded with the rest of the nation the second the world figures out we no longer have a way to defend ourselves).
Remember, these people think THEY are the smart ones.Add a comment
I kind of didn't want to get into the issue because the rest of the world has been going on and on about it, but people really do care about Obama's birth certificate.
It ceased being a fringe issue because even people like Donald Trump were starting to wonder, three years later, why Obama had this keep-away-like-a-school-yard-bully attitude about it. Now everyone wants to know why it took him so long to release it.
Is that really a mystery? The man is a narcissistic a-hole who thought the birthers could be made into kooks who would only get crazier the longer he ignored them.
He finally had to blink because the honeymoon for him was over, and he finally figured it out. Even his own reflection doesn't approve of the job he's doing. Just like in any relationship, familiarity with someone brings a heightened sense of awareness of their flaws. Yet, he wants us to think that he released it because we're being distracted by "sideshows."
Sideshows? SIDESHOWS?!? This man's entire presidency has been a big circus of political freakishness, his birth certificate was just the opening act...
The insistance to add a trillion dollar entitlement to our fiscal house of cards when people wanted a focus on the economy.
The vacations and golfing during times of crisis.
The constant humiliation of Israel, our ONLY real friend in the middle east.
The hypocritical lectures on shared sacrifice while his wife vacations on our dime.
The insistance on a civilian trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City.
His support for a mosque called Cordoba House (until people caught on and they had to change the name to Park 51), a word symbolic of Muslim conquest, blocks away from Ground Zero.
After two years of seeing this guy be aloof to the things Americans actually care about, the royal "we" (conservatives knew all along) have started to wonder whose side this real American idiot is really on.
People see the crap he's done and the idiotic positions that he takes, and they see how nothing in the country has improved. They're not even seeing a hint that it might improve. In fact, they see tangible evidence that the age of America is over, and the doubt planted 3 years ago begins to understandibly take root.
Our narcissist-in-chief lived in a bubble of media love for so long he began to overestimate the patience the American people have for even the leaders they like.
While I sincerely hope this ends the issue for birthers it must be pointed out that it didn't have to come to this. Then again, President Obama's hubris couldn't really allow him to handle this debacle any differently.Add a comment
Hmmm...what does the "C" stand for?
Unlike other golf leagues, the handicap system in the CGA is really simple:
Other rules include:
Use of the term "mulligan" is prohibited because President Obama has called dibs on it as his official 2012 campaign slogan
The CPA is a green-friendly league that is constantly making efforts to have as minimal a carbon footprint as possible. As such, all golf carts are fueled by pedal power.
For transportation from hole to hole the president gets to use a special golf cart popularly known as Air Force One
Per the first lady's instructions, all grass captured from the lawnmowers is recycled so it can be served in the nation's school cafeterias
Because "sand trap" may be offensive to middle east Muslims, they will be referred to as an "oasis of jihad"
Membership includes an iPod filled with recordings of pep talks the President has gives to his golf clubs
