Today in weird GOP racism

First there's the case of the gift that keeps on giving: Sarah Palin and her new book. Seems that she had a rather interesting reason for transferring out of the University of Hawaii, aside from the fact that lurking nearby was the sham birth certificated menace that would one day control the media conspiracy against her. See, Asians make her feel funny.
But Palin’s father, Chuck Heath, gave a different account to Conroy and Walshe. According to him, the presence of so many Asians and Pacific Islanders made her uncomfortable: “They were a minority type thing and it wasn’t glamorous, so she came home.”
This is why Sean and I are donating to the Palin 2012 campaign. This woman can not be allowed to go away for any reason. As a side note, Minority Type Thing just happens to be my favorite Stone Temple Pilots song.

But there's basic racism and there's our new favorite brand of racism: Obama inspired crazed rant racism. We knew that electing a black man was just going to screw with your fringe constituents and southern lawmakers pretty good. Hell, we didn't even like Barry, we were just in it for the imagined racial comedy. That's why were so glad that men like Arlington, Tennessee Mayor Russell Wiseman exist. Otherwise we wouldn't have gotten this beautiful Facebook rant on Obama's decision to talk on the TV about the Afghan troop escalation.
The second term mayor wrote, "Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'...."
" obama people need to move to a muslim country...oh wait, that's know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different..."
See what happens when someone fucks with a man's Charlie Brown? You get bizarre, misspelled rants against Muslims and the basic concept of Democracy. I'm just glad Obama didn't preempt Rudolph, otherwise we might have had a full blown race war on our hands.

You know even though he is kind of fucking up health care (or at least aiding and abetting its fuckup in the Senate) and his record on war on terror related measures has been less than inspiring, this Obama Presidency is working out better than expected just for shit like this. It's a shame he didn't pick a Latin guy as his VP.
