I thought by now I would have recovered from Rush Limbaugh’s screed on de black folks, de President and de Haitian disaster but I am not even close.  Is he a bigot, a crazy man, a crazy man bigot, an asshole, a piece of shit or all of these and some other things I can’t even imagine reading about in Grimms or Mein Kampf? (Yes – I said it).
 
Well – first of all and most important of all and down at the base of it all is color.  In this case black.   I believe, in my heart of hearts, that every morning white people wake up and think that the leader of the US will be white and when they realize it isn’t so, they flip out – in private and in public.  They just flip out.  They tear their white sheets and go insane.  Anyone who denies this is a hypocrite or has not had the fabulous advantage of living on this planet and seeing how black people have been demonized – after they built it all for ol’ white men.  If anyone can get past this self-evident truth, then maybe because Obama is the act that followed the clowns – no one can take it seriously. How could they really.   They are still recovering and laughing nervously at the last 8 years plus.  Worse still is that people all over the planet seem to really have some hope for the future of the future with this man in the White House.  Now if you subscribe to the conventional thinking that no one actually has any use for black people you will see how this conflict can arise. 
 
And so, Haiti, some little half an island near the US with odd, but close ties to this country, gets hit by a huge act of nature; a 7.0 earthquake, that knocks them flat. Flat, literally.  Knocks them dead and lost and damaged. And as if that isn’t bad enough – this is a little, struggling country whose population is at least 80% black.  Are you beginning to see a theme here?
 
Tune in to Rush, the fat fool who gives junkies a bad name,  whohas the President of the United States of America cackling evilly and rubbing his hands together because he can really ride this one to …where????  How can this one be exploited?  Oh sure – there will be scams and the bad people will not be rehabbed by this disaster – but to think- worse – to say – no worse  – to broadcast that Mr. Obama is happy this happened because he can make points with black people – of all shades – is – what?  What is it?  What do you call this kind of thinking?  What we do know – what we can posit without much fear of argument is that now we KNOW that Rush Limbaugh is a bigot.  He is a big, fat, bigot.  From the instant he uttered his screed on Haiti he showed us his hand and he is holding a deck of race cards.  From now on every person who listens to him and likes his beliefs will have to also know that he is a bigot.  That if he says the sky is blue – he is a bigot.  That if he says he didn’t have a heart attack – he is a bigot and if you like his message then you have been listening to the utterings of a bigot.  What does this make you?  A bigot?  I don’t know – ask yourself but know this – Rush Limbaugh is a bigot.  He almost makes Pat Robertson look like…less of a bigot.

Obama is my president.  He was my choice as a candidate and I am happy he is in the White House.  I am sick of the minute by minute negative commentary on his progress in 8 months as the president.  But what is even more alarming is the dedicated and vocal GOP opposition that appears to think telling lies is far more important  than the running of this country and the welfare of all  its citizens.  Suddenly we find ourselves rolled over by the calculated lies and misinformation being spewed by the GOP and their right of normal adherents.  During the horrifying eight years of George W. Bush and his evil twin Dick Cheney, no one made a peep.  Democrats tried but they were denied voice by Homeland Security rules; rendition, being a traitor, selling out this country, doubting (doubting was as bad as traiting) and daring to accuse the GOP of exactly what it was doing and what could and has been proven.  The incumbents of that era grew very fat and happy.  They became drunk with the sense of entitlement and power they could wield like a club and like it or not we put up with it.  Now that they are not in charge, they have returned to what they do best – obfuscation of truth.  Their champions are Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter and Glenn Beck.  Pop culture demagogues of questionable character who present as absolute truth , lies they want to spread.  Their platform – the over the top strict construction of the Constitution and out of context “intelligence” that isn’t anything but crap.
 
Does it irk people that Mr. Obama (and family) are the very thing they fear?  Not just his racial background, but his education, attitude and willingness to hash out policy by going directly to the people.    Is he doing a great job – not every time – but he isn’t being allowed much latitude in his actions.  Hysterical citizens at Town Hall meetings ready to riot over “death panels” is not quite my idea of civilized  exchanges of opinion and ideas.  This country is bankrupt.  Financially and morally.  The Objectivists dragged that unsound “ism” right straight to Wall Street and suddenly Wall Street has a “road closed” sign.  Too many laws were broken and hidden and no one gave out tickets until it was far too late. 
 
Health care reform?  Oh no you can’t.  A suddenly vociferous section of the population doesn’t care if 47 million of their fellow citizens stay healthy or die.  They are bloodsucking leeches who want YOU to pay for their insurance.  Pay for it yourself – they say.  I would bet they would stop that screed in about two seconds if they lost theirs.  They fail to see that the 47 million paid for many things they didn’t like – war for example.  Gay people paid for things they weren’t even allowed to have.  Black people have been paying since the first boat hit Virginia.  Suddenly the sanctimonious right is on the warpath.  And they are working overtime to undermine and derail the current administration with lies and half truths and it’s time the rest of us spoke up and did something before they get another term in the White House.  If you think it can’t happen – Al Gore will tell you it does.
 
Let Barack Obama and his cabinet do their jobs– get out of your comfort zone and if you have to stoop to the GOP level – then get close to the ground and do it.  Their media personalities quit office, pop pills and sell snake oil.  One of our media spokesmen is a senator now.  A wise Latina sits on the bench with a busload of self-righteous hypocrites.  Buenvenidos Justice Sotomayor.  Their moguls steal bonuses from their stockholders.  Two of our CEO’s have won the Nobel Peace Prize. 
 
I don’t have to walk you through this minefield.  Don’t get smug or complacent because we won the election.  The GOP is still snarling at the door of the Oval Office.
When you hear a rumor go to Factcheck.org or Snopes.  When something sounds made up – make sure it is or isn’t before you spread it and other people get sick.  There are Republicans who are decent and smart and responsible – but they are very, very well-mannered and subdued.  They are being drowned out by their wing nut political partners.  They need to be louder but we need to be louder still.

Sarah Palin Has Nothing to Lose? October 15, 2008

Sally Sixpack has figured out an odd way to help her running mate win the election.; something I think running mates are supposed to do.  On Rush Limbaugh today she declared “she had nothing to lose” by saying the things she has said publicly for the last week or so.  Well, Sally – here’s a tip – John McCain has poured millions of dollars into trying to win the White House – he has stumped all over the country while you had secret babies and a knocked up teenager and abuses of power on your tiny plate and your tiny mind.  McCain is 72 – let’s face it – he tires more easily than someone in their 40’s.  So while he was out busting his ass to win friends and influence people, build a war chest, narrow the field and win the GOP nomination – you were having your nails done and charging the taxpayers for travel time you didn’t even use.  You are absolutely correct though.  “You got nothin’ to lose”  You haven’t spent millions of dollars of your money on fund raisers or McCain rallies to try for the brass ring.  All you have is a bully pulpit, a big mouth and a nice rack.  Whatever kind of Christian you claim to be is one who is certainly not very well acquainted with Scripture but in the book of Proverbs 10:18 this is way it’s said :

, “He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.” So Sally – you appear to be a fool on a fool’s errand betraying even the poor man who so foolishly chose you to run with him.  You got nothin’, you got nothin’ to loose. If you had an ounce of dignity and compassion you would make yourself invisible and step down. (Thanks Bob). 

 So this is what I think Sally, you are a fake.  You are a has been beauty queen.  You are a mean girl. You are the worm in the apple and the aftertaste in diet soda. And it used to be annoying but now it’s  become dangerous – more dangerous than Bill Ayers, more dangerous than the name Hussein and way more dangerous than  poor, shaky John McCain ever imagined.  You are costing Senator McCain his bid at the White House.  And even worse you are the still first runner up and will be crowned Miss America if he dies in office.  I am a Democrat and hope he loses, but God, woman.  What is wrong with you?  I am thinking that this is your walk down the runway of life – going for the crown and the roses and getting a free trip to Atlantic City.  You were nobody before and here’s the best part- you’ll be nobody and a joke soon. You need to get offa’ the ticket and  ride outta’ town.  Like Lou Reed sang back in the day:

Ride, sally, ride
It’s not your time, it’s just your confusion
Ride, sally, ride
It’s not your time …….

David Brooks who called you a fatal cancer was not far off.  Rude, nasty, cruel –  then take a look at yourself.  He was being kind.
