Nice hat, Senator

obama

Y’all know I’ve been pretty depressed about this presidential election. John McCain seriously harshes my shadenfreude. Every time I start to go after a Democrat, I hear McCain’s evil-grampa laugh in my ear, and my (entirely metaphorical) balls shrivel.

But I’ve listened to the entirety of Jeremiah Wright’s National Press Club and NAACP speeches and I can’t remember a time I have so passionately wished to poke someone in the snoot. Entirely metaphorically, of course.

I think it was where he imitates the way white people talk. Being mimicked reaches right back into my nursery school braincells and makes them throb with screaming monkey rage.

Or maybe that bit about how Europeans and Africans are different right down to the brainal level. I don’t know from neuropathology, I only know if a white man had said anything close to that, it would buy him a one-way ticket to Lepertown.

Listening to Wright made me feel grubby; that he is slick only makes it grubbier. It was like being dipped in a cesspit of toxic racial sludge. Like attending a Klan rally on Bizarroworld.

How bad was it? Bad enough that Obama disowned the man he could no more disown than the black community or his white grandmother (watch your back, Granny).

Wright didn’t develop his peculiarly smelly brand of afroNazism over the weekend. It’s totally implausible that Obama rubbed elbows with Wright for twenty years and never heard a word of his ridiculous, balls-out craziness before yesterday. Clearly, Obama chose this church for these qualities, because he desired that particular flavor of cred.

I doubt Obama believes a word of that crap; he doesn’t strike me as a retard. That makes this ass-bite especially satisfying. It’s dangerous to handle poison, Senator.

Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh.

Oh, shut up, John.


UPDATE: I told mesa I’d make a color version, but it was pretty much FAIL. I’ve never tinted a photo using this technique, and it looked awful. Like a tinted photo. So I made some slight adjustments to the grayscale version and replaced the image in the post. I’ve also uploaded a large version and one that is 160 pixels wide. It’s a bit too tall for a sidebar graphic, but I’m not the boss of you.

This is as good a time as any to review my graphics policy: take it. Take anything you like. Change it, if you want. Post it. Have it tattoo’d on your butt. No need to link back or give credit. This is ephemera we’re making here and I need the karma.

Just…say something nice about me when I’m gone.

Yay, Weasel! (I ain’t gonna ‘rassle her, YOU do it! ‘Cause she ain’t afraid to get dirty none, and she BITES when she get mad!)

Listening to the stupid so us morons don’t have to! Thank you, Weasel, for caring about us so much!

I doubt Obama believes a word of that crap; he doesn’t strike me as a retard.

One minor quibble here. OB went to school in Hawaii…and for some reason, there is a virulent strain of racism extant in the Islands. And its a kind of racism that would feel comfortable with Rev. Wright’s brand. So OB may not outwardly “believe” the crap, but someplace deep in his soul there is a little fertile spot where this morality destroying weed grows.

/Hmmm. Now what was it got me banned over at that other place? Oh, yeah. Firsties!

Because Her Stoatliness follows Harry Hutton’s blog (I believe), I have to share this comment from a thread about a first grader (named Randy Castro) who has been branded a sex offender:

Once again, a name appears to be destiny for little Randy, tho’ by that logic the Castro part implies he’ll end up one of those guys who tells you he’s not queer ‘cos he’s the pitcher not the catcher.

All is not lost, young Randy – little Kevin De Kok had a similarly troublesome moniker, but with a little lateral thinking he was able to parlay it into fame and riches as head of the UN World AIDS Program. Tho’ I forget now whether he’s fighting it or spreading it…

Droobles. Now that is just the military turn of phrase I were looking for.

The “EW1” part is a Naval rating (now part of Naval history) that reads as “Electronics Warfare Technician, First Class.” Pronunciation hint: The “SG” part is silent, because its a ‘designator,’ not necessarily (and in this case, not at all) related to the rating.

I beg the indulgence of the English people, and those who know them. I have two questions about the word “punter”:
1. What does it mean?
2. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being “gosh”, 10 being the f-word), how would you rate “punter” on the bad-word-scale?

 


Comment from EW1(SG)
Time: April 29, 2008, 11:19 pm

AFAIK, “punter” is a Briticism used to describe those gambling on a sporting event: particularly horse races. As to the bad-word-scale, it rates right at 0, unless you’re dealing with some stupid ass-wipe that don’t know what “niggardly” means neither.

 


Comment from Steamboat McGoo
Time: April 29, 2008, 11:21 pm

Mu – (is it ok to call you Mu? Mu is the Greek letter representing the fundamental physical quantity “permeability” in electronics, and is also the quantity prefix “one millionth”)

Mu – In the US, ‘punter’ can mean a specialized football kicker, like a field-goal kicker. It can also be used to describe a gambler, horse-handicapper (gambler again), or an investor.

Used in a derogatory fashion, it would mean ‘risk-taker’ and perhaps having a seedy, cheap, cut-rate, fly-by-night, or slightly disreputable business reputation.

I would say its no higher than a 1 or 2 and could be used in polite or mixed company with no issues. It is simply mildly demeaning to the object of the label.

All the above my opinion only, of course. God knows what the Brits and Aussies make of the word.

Ha! I just now noticed the crap (or is it a broken egg? I like it better if it’s crap) on Obama’s left shoulder. That’s great. I love your attention to detail, Weas.

It’s breathtaking how disgustingly racist Wright is. And, similarly to He Who Must Not Be Named’s newsletter debacle, the best possible spin on the situation for Obama is that he is a total naïf and a poor judge of character. Which kinda disqualifies him from the whole Presidency thing, don’t you think? Like that one reader of Geraghty’s said, can’t you just imagine President Obama saying, “The Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who nuked Tel Aviv today is not the man I held a summit with in 2009”?

But Obechicken and the (D)s can rip this country apart.

My opinion – usually wrong – your mileage may vary – written on a closed road with a complete moron at the keyboard who has not had his first cup of coffee.

And – mesa – I’ve already learned so much from Mu it’s indecent!

Musli, “He Who Must Not Be Named” is what I call The Only Man Who Can Save America, also known as the Man with Two First Names, because if you actually say his name, his supporters appear and begin ranting about the gold standard. Ace covered the newsletters…if you still don’t know who/what I’m talking about, I’ll dig up a link when I get home. Right now, I must get to work.

My dear mustelid, you are exactly right. I was appalled by the racism of Wright’s speech. I think Obama’s candidacy has hurt race relations in America very badly. Many of us, while still thinking Obama is a Marxist and not even remotely qualified to be President, still bought into the post-racial bit and assumed that Obama genuinely was a nice guy, and now we’re seeing that that’s not true.

Ah, got it, Mrs. Peel. Thank you for not mentioning his name. I would hate to see this lovely site soiled by such simians.

I don’t think race relations were worsened: I think their true status was simply brough out into the open.

So, yes, America has a problem with racism, and the problem isn’t the whites, that’s for sure.

I understand Lady Weasel’s scruples when it comes to racism, though I still don’t necessarily agree. I think the only way white people will have a say is when they talk despite what reaction or opposition they may face.

Of course, the whole issue of racism may be thorny, considering that if we observe practically every single ethnic group in other countries of the world, each one is ethnocentric or racist. *shrug* So, whatev.

Conservatism (minus the falsely-implicit religious aspects) is reality-based. That’s why it works. Liberalism is (essentially) self-indulgence, which is why its so popular with the young and dumb.

Weaz, you’re not selfish and cowardly: you’re like me; you’re “saving yourself” for when it really, really counts.

I was sometimes astonished by the racism/ethnocentrism that I ran into in other countries.

But it hasn’t been all that long ago that racism was a normal attitude or behavior here. A couple of generations. But the astounding thing is, that just in that small space of time~entire generations can become more than what their parents were, even while reaching higher because of the foundation earlier generations have built. I was surprised to find bigotry in my family in an older generation, my daughter has not got a clue what it is.

Which is pretty neat.

As a non-white, I was on the receiving end of racism only once. When I was a wee kid, someone told me to go back to India. I was confused: I never came from there, so why should I “go back” there?

Otherwise, I have not had even one racist encounter.

On the other hand, I met the most racist person evah in college. He’s an Indian (dot, not feather). Heh.

When I was about five, my mother and I were driving through downtown Nashville and got caught at a redlight. There was a bus next to us, and I looked up and spotted a little black girl, just about my age, in the seat above me. Our eyes met. I smiled up at her shyly. She stuck her tongue out at me.

Granted, I was a little white girl in a big gold Ford LTD with air conditioning in 1965, and she was not. If the roles were reversed, I might’ve made a rude gesture, too.

Muslihoon (Mr. Snark?)

Way back up there, you said: “So, yes, America has a problem with racism, and the problem isn’t the whites, that’s for sure.”

You don’t know how nice it is to hear that for once. I am pretty tired of always being assumed to be racist because I’m white and assumed to be a rabid one if I speak out against the characterization. My grandparents were racist to a point where I was disgusted yet resigned. I’ve said elsewhere, a black roommate and a hispanic best-man kind of says *something* doesn’t it?

The reality is that depending on the person or group, it goes both ways, which is sad.

An indian (dot) friend/co-worker who was a PhD in my lab once told me about how upon learning that he was from India, a woman asked him if everybody lived in trees. Crickets chirped before I could ask “She didn’t *really* say that, did she?” Yep. This was in the 90’s.

So, even though you might have said elsewhere, would I be racist to wonder where you really are from? You’ve made comments that have led me to assume that, so sorry if I am wrong.

Well sure, LK…but I thought you had a beloved Himalayan…?

You know, I have a cat that does actually like to have his ass blown across. Or his balls blown upon. I’ve never really understood which. When he was a baby and we played on the carpet, he used to waggle his little ass at me. He was neutered at that point, but I realized he was pretend scent-marking me. So I decided to shock him with a puff of air.

He developed a taste for it.

Yeah… but it’s a wuv/hate thing. He’s been a good kitty but he’s had three toes amputated, two teeth extracted, another needs to come out (his breath will peel paint), he’s in his low teens and peeing on things (including my pillow a few months back). Flip side is he’s awesome with the kids (only two nips, ever) and he shadows you constantly, because he just plain wants to be with you.

So, while being the sweetest kindheartedestest Katt in the world, he’s a $4000 cat. With bad breath.

So to avoid anymore unpleasant seriousness, I ask you… who WOULD’T like his balls blown upon?

Catsophone is hard to beat. That’s like a lifetime score, there.

No, he’s not diabetic. He has had some issues with a combination of poor circulation and urea granules related to nutrition (sounds yucky, doesn’t it). It runs in his particular family line. He originally was declawed and the crystals ended up disturbing the healing, causing bone infections. He’s on a special diet which nipped that in the bud.

Not sure about the teeth. I haven’t been on his case about flossing.

Ok doubleplusundead,

I had a rectal-cranial inversion (leads to nasal polyps in the colon). Perhaps McGoo can shed light on this.

Silver d’Cat had urea crystals in his urine (which makes sense) and required special dietary adjustments, and the crystals in his toe tissues was an unknown. Vets up at the university had no idea either. Perhaps from living too near the Hanford reservation? (chilly organ music in the background) Maybe he ate some Plutonium peanut butter. Prolly not since he wasn’t badged to get out to the hot areas.

I’m sure there are plenty of white racists. But a good lot of you have been guilted into being not only non-racist but to devalue your own race. Whence wiggers and whatnot.

Where am I from…well, I was born in IL, then moved to Pakistan, then to the United Arab Emirates, then to IL again. Mom comes from Pakistan. Dad from India. And yet they’re cousins. (Dad’s family was slow to migrate to Pakistan.) So, really, I have no idea where I am from. My family roots are from the Pashtun/Afghan area (yes, it pains me that I may be distantly related to the Taliban; but we don’t have any cultural practices of the Pashtuns: we’re thoroughly regular South Asian Barelvi Hanafi Sunni people, more common with the people from the Deccan than from the Pashtun areas) and from the Punjab area, and actually family legend has it that we go back to the Kingdom of Israel, which was scattered before the Kingdom of Judah. In other words, we’re from one of the lost Ten Tribes (which may make sense considering that until the Taliban took over, there were a good number of Jews in that region, and the names of many tribes betray an Israelite origin). My ancestors were Muslim, before which some were Sikh, before which they all were Hindu and possibly Buddhist and, if the legend is true, Jewish. I complete the chain by becoming a Christian (after dabbling with Judaism, Santeria, Western occult mysticism, neo-paganism, Satanism, and toying with Zoroastrianism and Yezidism).

I’m sure that was entirely TMI.

No, but it was a lot of info in a dang small space!

I’m sure there are plenty of white racists. But a good lot of you have been guilted into being not only non-racist but to devalue your own race. Whence wiggers and whatnot.

I suppose, and I even met a white racist or two. Not always sure, because many are smart enough to keep their mouths shut.

But honestly, I’ve met many more black racists, of the attending church with a pastor like Wright type than any other kind. (I’ve also met a number of Hawaiian racists as well.) And I can’t say that I was guilted into anything, it just never was anything that my mother would teach or pass on, so I didn’t have any idea that anybody cared what somebody else’s skin color was.

I will admit though, that I grew up in an area where there wasn’t a whole lot of racial diversity. I remember the first time I saw somebody in person who was black, instead of on (the B&W) TV. I was maybe ten or so, just preteen I think, and my first thought was “Wow!! What a terrific tan!” as the individuals were a pair of early teen boys at a swimming hole someplace with the sun shining.

I remember being envious because I thought they were really handsome with that beautiful dark skin in the sun. And they were.
