The GOP, the Voters and the Negro in the White House November 9, 2014

Words will not be minced.  The vote is in.  The shame is apparent for those who voted (those who actually lifted their asses off the couch and voted) and voted blue.  While the GOP laughs its own ass off at the expense of an America I used to know, we need to accept that people of both parties blew it off.  Some of us displayed their colors – loud and true but anyone who whines needs to shut up.  The Democrats royally, bluely screwed up.  But I suspect they tried hard to win.  Just not hard enough.

The  voting majority population of America has revealed themselves to be basically bigots over the last two terms of the Obama presidency.  These folks who cling to GOP antiquated platforms and policy; who cannot seem to get their mouths around the word oligarchy (but apparently embrace it with gusto), are complicit in the worst bigotry I have witnessed in my voting life.   Forget policy, decisions, progress, lack of it, programs, innovations, missteps from the Oval Office.  Forget all that.  We have had many worse jerks sitting there and we all know who they have been.  So jerkishness is not the issue.  Lack of education and integrity isn’t the issue, golf isn’t the issue, sex, drugs and rock and roll isn’t the issue.  Barack Obama’s only shortcoming – right in the door, was being Black.  If anyone wants to pretend it isn’t true, then go for it but it is the unvarnished truth and it has been the real issue driving the GOP since the 2008 Election.  (that, and the pre-oath Nobel Prize,  didn’t help either).  The votes came in and they were counted and Mr. Obama won the election.  Which was such a stunning blow to our aryan nation and other small-minded, pistol packing populace, they spent their holidays trying to figure out how to undo this hideous wrong.  And it wasn’t just Obama, but his Black wife, two Black children and his Black mother-in-law.  And oh the places they went.  That toke, that mosque, that trip to Nairobi, the Hawaiian press, the Halls of Records and eventually the courts.  All that effort wasted on lies and conspiracy theory because no one could say, dared say, would say: “Well, the main issue is that he’s Black”.  So add in hypocrisy to the mix. Because, to my mind, that has always been the one and only issue.  He wakes up in the White House Black, he gives speeches, Black, he is Commander-in-Chief, Black.  (what about that stank salute?) How could this have happened and how can it be stopped?  If the election of Barack Obama told Black Americans one thing, it said, loud and clear – “you do not belong in the White House”.  What should have been inspirational, uplifting and encouraging to this built on slavery nation, should have been the achievement of this election.  Wrong.  What it said in fact was: “watch us make him dance Jim Crow.”  We will screw him in the Congress, will mock him on the golf course, ruin his vacations, whisper about his daughters’ private parts;  we will undermine his decisions, we will schlep repeatedly to the Supreme Court and we will have interstellar media to broadcast loud and clear.  Entrance and exit polls, Silver and Gold to show the United States what a huge mistake they made.  And aren’t they glad that now have a Congress that will do all they can to right this grave wrong.  And watch as we acquire huge amounts of money from corporations who can only benefit from a juicy free market economy government.  Occupy? They occupy. They occupy Wall Street, some of the Supreme Court and the economy.  They are the minions;  Kochs, the Adelsons (bad for the Jews especially), the Walmarts, the Ailes, the Murdochs, Big Tobacco, Big Pharma and so many others that lurk in plain view.

Who remembers JFK?  Well, I do and I remember how the nation cringed at the idea that a Roman Catholic was going to run for the Presidency.  Oh damn.  Here comes the Pope, the ornate censers, the holy water fonts and we cannot allow that. Those things never happened, but by God, it was still stopped short. JFK may have died from lack of electronic media.  The poor man was a physical wreck, he was heavily medicated and a skirt chaser.  But it wasn’t “known or shown” due to the lack of technology.  I remember seeing the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald shot by Jack Ruby on the front page, for heaven’s sake!  Who ever thought of that happening.  In public. Those days are gone.

So now for the last two years of this beleaguered man’s administration, the gloating GOP; drunk, sober, felonious, old, male, mostly white and misogynistic will roll like dogs in shit and howl at the moon as they are allowed by popular vote, to carry on their malfeasance. How much better can it get until 2016.*

I simply hope that when Mr. Obama leaves the White House – in these lame duck sessions of Congress, he will go out quacking loud and strong.

*(Hint to Democrats:  Do not nominate anyone who absolutely cannot or will not win due to gender, age, color, creed or decent morality.  Just don’t do it.).

Racism, Sexism, Ageism – American Traditions Run for Office September 28, 2008

Now that there is a hint of a peep that some GOP insiders are thinking Snarky Sarah should fall off the GOP ticket, I am waiting with bated breath to see if and how she does it.  Anyone who considers interaction with Canada a qualification for determining foreign policy has severe brain freeze. (And when was this contretemps with Canada/Alaska and why didn’t we know about it?)  As far as I can tell the closest the Snark has come to foreign relations is with her Kenyan houngan Rev Muthee.  She is a bad print of a smoke and mirrors magician who coughs on the smoke and walks into the mirrors while the rabbits run away.  Since neither Palin nor McCain know enough to get real – here’s  hoping the Grand Old Party pulls the plug on this fiasco without delay. Having a nice rack is not a qualification for much anymore since you can get a nice rack for about $5,000.  Anyone can buy those pricey Peggy Hill glasses and teasing hair is not actually a talent. Neither is having five kids. She should, drop – literally – out – ASAP.
 
As an aside; while McCain stood and repeated himself Friday night, I wondered what his running mate thought of the many times he mentioned “earmarks”.  Sarah’s earmark hobby doesn’t make her an expert on that either- pork barrel patronage is simply NOT kosher – even in Alaska.
So here we have a campaign concert in contradictions and a election rife with  three of the most un-PC components of hypocrisy alive and active in the United States.  Let’s review: 
 
AGEISM:
McCain is too old.  What is too old?  Too old for what?  Why is he too old? When was there an age cap on running for office. Who declared this to be a fact? You know who was too old?  Strom Thurmond.
 
And if it’s McCain’s health that is used as a clean up for ageism – let’s not forget “Just A Heartbeat Away from Another Heart Attack” Dick Cheney – who is still just several pace makers away from the White House.  Or the handsome and down to earth Ronald Reagan who may or may not have spent a good deal of his two terms in the throes of Alzheimer’s and or naps. Every time they mention McCain’s 72 year old heart it’s a slur.  Like it or not.
RACISM:
Obama is Black.  Obama is not Black enough. Obama is too black.  Obama has a Black wife and two Black children. .  Obama’s mother was white.  What about his middle name?  Obama is an elitist person of color (That is just a crafty word for uppity.)  Obama went to Harvard.  Is someone jealous? Seriously, doesn’t someone with 9 houses seem elite?  Even on an ordinary day I would not use the word elite to describe Obama but I would consider the McCain’s nouveau riche and they probably think they are elite. I know most middle of the road Americans are pondering how it came to pass that a dark looking man is running for president.  Some are scared and will not say so.  Others are forming militias.  If Obama was white it wouldn’t matter.  He might even slip by if his father had been white and his mother black but it is what it is. This is racist and every time someone mentions Black in a “roll your eyes” tone of voice or calls him the N word among “friends” – it’s a form of slur.  Like it or not.
 
SEXISM    
 She’s a Woman.  She has children.  She grabbed the main chance.  She was middle-aged.  She went to law school.  She wore pants suits.  Her hair was wrong.  Who does her hair?  Who chooses her outfits. What about those hairbands?   Look at that rack.  She pre-menopausal, she’s menopausal, she’s dried up.
She hunts and shoots.  She stood by her cheating man. Could be Palin or Hillary –  they have vaginas in common  We do not want the Senate floor to be turned into the vagina monologues* This is all sexist and thus slurs.  Like it or not.
 
There it is, the clock ticking away like a bomb.  And as loyal Americans we stand true to our history, culture, hypocrisy, fears, attitudes, religions and bank accounts –  at it again.   Every four years.  Like it or not.
