Sarah Palin Criticizes Obama White House Christmas Card

I was starting to forget all about Sarah Palin these days. She's managed to keep her nose out of media affairs for the last several weeks, so it's been an absolute pleasure to hear nothing but silence from Planet Wasilla. That silence, however, was short-lived-- 'cause here comes Sarah, with more stupidity-- just in time for the holiday season! Her latest pile of bullshit actually does happen to be holiday-related.

The White House has sent out their holiday card for the season, and Silly Sarah is taking issue with it:

“It’s odd,” she said, wondering why the president’s Christmas card highlights his dog instead of traditions like “family, faith and freedom.”
Horrible, isn't it? Makes you wonder what kind of pagan, satanic garbage the Obama's are passing off as Christmas cards these days. Take a look at THIS insanity!!!

...that's it. Seriously, this is the card that Palin is complaining about.

Palin said the majority of Americans can appreciate the more traditional, “American foundational values illustrated and displayed on Christmas cards and on a Christmas tree.”

As for the Obama card, she replied, “It’s just a different way of thinking coming out of the White House.”

Really, Sarah? Well, let's take a look at some Xmas cards from previous administrations:

This is Geroge W. Bush's card from 2005

This is JFK's from 1962

...and lastly...This is Sarah's boyfriend's card: Ronald Regan, 1984

So once again, ladies and gentlemen, we have the bimbo Palin and the Fox News mental defectives making a conspiracy and controversy out of NOTHING AT ALL. Well, what more can you expect from the news channel for the uneducated.

By the way-- have you seen Fox News' holiday card yet?

Just teeming with "American foundational values", isn't it? Nothing says tradition and class like self-promotion for the holidays!

Happy Holidays Sarah! Maybe Santa can finally bring you a brain! Well, maybe not-- he's not a wizard...!

G.O.P. vs G.A.Y.

When you talk about bigots in politics, some people will get offended when the finger is pointed at Republicans as the number one offender. Well, "some people" meaning Republicans-- they don't like being identified as the party of intolerence. They don't like it, but time and time again they seem to prove that they are. Recently, it's been Rick Santorum in the news for saying stupid, stupid things about how homosexuality will cause the United States to "fall". He says that his issues with the gay community has everything to do with the sex.
"We can flesh out some, well, let's look at what's going to be taught in our schools because now we have same sex couples being the same and their sexual activity being seen as equal and being affirmed by society as heterosexual couples and their activity," he said.

Funny that, as there is really no difference between anal and/or oral sex between straights or gays-- you're either penetrating the anus, or putting your mouth on genitalia. There are straight men that LOVE anal sex-- either giving, or receiving (via fingers and whatnot). Does that make those men gay? Personally, I'm not a fan of anal-- as much as I love a nice ass on a lady...I'm not really moved to wanna stick it in there; I'm a vagina man. The issue of sex in sexuality has way too many nuances to make condemnations about style and imposing them on a particular group of people.

But we are talking about Rick Santorum, here-- the Republican bigot for the ages. You have to give him credit for not being afraid to let his true colors show. He reminds me of how Strom Thurman was comfortable enough to use the word "nigger" in his political speeches. Santorum is at least conscious enough to not use the word "fag" or "queer" or whatever other ugly slurs exist. However, when it comes to the mentality of this man, he's about as ignorant as they come.

And how about Rick Perry! The Texas Turd is back, this time with a 30 second spot to celebrate his anti-gay bigoty:

This is my favorite line in this thing:

"You know there's something wrong when gays can openly serve in the military, but our kids cannot opening celebrate Christmas."


These people using religion to justify their bigotry is shameful. "I believe in God, and God hates fags." That's really what they're saying! Now, of course, none of these people would say that. Their constituents, however, would! I can't tell you how many times I've been around straight people-- not friends or family, but just the dolts out in the world-- that have no problem insulting gays publicly. Again, this is akin to white folks being comfortable enough to say "nigger" in public-- it's the same kind of mindset; that of a witless fuck-tard.

Man oh man. I mean, what can you really say about this stupid shit that hasn't been said already? I think the problem is that whatever we have to say about these assholes, we have to say it LOUDER, and MORE OFTEN. Seriously-- to be THIS OPEN about your prejudices, and STILL be allowed to hold or compete for public office is amazing to me.

Gay bigotry is not held up to the same scrutiny as bigotry based on race or religion. And that makes me wonder...what if we had a war on the religious bigots. Not those phoney media wars, like the so-called "War on Christmas"-- I'm talking an all-out assault on ANYONE using the Bible or some other dogma or fantasy bullshit as a tool to condemn homosexuality.  I, for one, don't want to live in a world where brain-dead Christians and Evangelicals or whatever can push to legislate their hate and ignorance on the American People.

MIchelle Bachmann Dominated by 8 Year-Old

Considering the level of discourse from GOP Presidential Candidates, the headline above should come as no surprise to those of you who follow politics. Every time one of these Republicans opens their mouths, they set our nation back 20-30 years at least. These are people who are not very interested in the lives of real Americans...just the fetishized view of what passes for "normal" for lower-to-middle income white folks.

All joking aside, this clip of Bachmann being confronted by a little boy regarding a hot-button social issue is priceless-- mostly for the look of sheer horror on her face when she leans in to hear what the shy little boy is trying to say to her:

I must say that the ONLY thing that I have issue with in the clip is the fact that kid seems to have been pushed into saying what he said by his mother. I think the mother wanted to get Bachmann in a YouTube moment, and used her child to make that happen. I have to say that I am not a big fan of passive-aggressive behavior-- even in cases when I don't particularly like the target. There is no reason why that woman would not have confronted Bachmann on her own-- but I get it. It's the same kind of thing that a politician would have done to set someone up. But this was a setup. This kid clearly wouldn't know Bachmann from Barney. Aside from that, I can't get over that look on her face when she realized what the kid had said. It's amazing to me that these Republicans bristle and fold under the most honest and sincere of questioning...but we're supposed to believe that they will have the strong stuff that it takes to run this country. Seriously-- if you fall apart when a little kid asks you a question, how are you going to act when Katie Couric or Rachel Maddow asks you a question. Oh yes, that's GOP candidates don't like talking to the media. Only entertainment outlets like Fox News are safe...right?

Interracial Couples Banned...From Church in Kentucky

American society just keeps on churning out the ass-backward morons and bigots! A community church in Pike County, Kentucky-- in an effort to improve their so-called quality of life-- has voted to ban interracial couples from attending their church services. This decision came in the wake of an appearance by a young woman named Stella Harville and her finance Ticha Chikuni, who accompanied Stella on piano as she sang a song during a service. This was the church that Stella was baptized in, the church that she attended as a child. But because she decided to marry an African man, members of the church turned them away.

"It's not the spirit of the community in any way, shape or form," Randy Johnson, president of the Pike County Ministerial Association.

The proposal, drawn up by church members, states that "parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship not intended to judge the salvation of anyone, but is intended to promote greater unity among the church body and the community we serve." So basically, with the exception of funerals, interracial couples are not permitted at Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church.

I'm sure there are quite a few of you that are surprised by this. I am not. And I'm willing to bet you that 95% of black folks are not surprised by this either. When you live in a society whose beginnings were focused on making your people 3rd class citizens, no matter how long and how much things have changed...the other shoe will ALWAYS drop.

White folks are presumed racist until proven otherwise. That's a sad thing to say, but it's true. I am the last person that wants to think negatively of others based on race...but I have to tell you, in my experience it's somewhat warranted. Look, I grew up with white folks. Ever since I was 8 years old, I have been either the only, or one of a few, black folks in a sea of white faces. From grade school, to college, to my professional life-- white-white-white-white-white-white-white-white-white. Does that bother me? Not really. If anything bothered me, it was black folks being down on me for either hanging out with white folks-- and this was mostly coming from inner-city black folks that didn't have much experience in dealing with white people other than the filmed footage they would see from the Civil Rights movement in the 50s and 60s.

For the most part, I have not had many negative experiences with white folks when it comes to racism. I think it's save to say that in my lifetime,  I've had issues with 3 out of 10 white folks. I'm talkin' completely unprovoked racist shit-- using the word "nigger" in a negative context, following me in stores, having doors slammed in my face, dirty looks-- mostly passive-aggressive bullshit, but clearly motivated by race. I'm not one of these people that sees racism in a game of pool or somesuch shit. I know it when I see it. And every white face I see, that I don't know, has that question lingering in the back of my mind: "Is this another one of those assholes I have to deal with now?"

Just when you think that it's ONLY gay marriage that we have to deal with anymore. Racist shit in America will NEVER go away. Is it as mainstream as it was even 20 years ago? Nope. Now, MTV has no problem playing videos from black artists (some say that's all they do these days). Now, there is more than one show on television featuring an educated black family (Cosby Show was groundbreaking for its time). And now, interracial couples are on the rise-- it's so common that names like "coal miners" and "jungle fever" are dated and ridiculous.

Face it, folks...we're never gonna get rid of assholes like these church people. They have their own little slice of the world that they can control-- miniscule in the grand scheme of things. If they want to isolate themselves from the rest of the union, let them. All we can do is educate our kids, live our lives, and watch these poor ignorant folks die.
