They must be from the Hopi tribe.

Lionel Hutz Esq. July 25, 2008 at 4:22 pm

Yeah, and how well did that work the last time the man came storming into the West.

Scarab July 25, 2008 at 4:22 pm

Really, there’s a blessing for that? Does it involve endless drumming?

masterdebater July 25, 2008 at 4:23 pm

They threw bison shit at McCain?

NoWireHangers July 25, 2008 at 4:24 pm

Black Eagle will be flying in real soon.

loquaciousmusic July 25, 2008 at 4:24 pm

I know a lot of Native Americans. You, sir, are no Native American.

Sussemilch July 25, 2008 at 4:26 pm

It’s a smudging. Yes, it’s sort of a blessing, but in Indian Country it’s more like building code.

Wiring? Check. Plumbing? Check. Pacifying the spirits of antiquity that are gonna be pissed off that thousands of white folk are paving over the land to eat burgers? Check.

[re=44683]WadISay[/re]: Excellent! And quick!

AngryBlakGuy July 25, 2008 at 4:28 pm

…unfortunately halfway through the ceremony they were kicked out of there venue and given blankets infested with small pox.

freakishlystrong July 25, 2008 at 4:32 pm

[re=44718]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Yah, but they also get whiskey and casinos!

WhatTheHeck July 25, 2008 at 4:36 pm

And just what is the Ute native American Indian Ute word for Barack H Obama?
“Hopeless Unicorn?” “He who kicks old man’s butt?” “Buffalo soljah? ”What?

SayItWithWookies July 25, 2008 at 4:37 pm

This must mean that McCain is currently giving a speech in front of a cigar store Indian.

Marcel Parcells July 25, 2008 at 4:40 pm

Maybe they should just try voting. Or are Indians not allowed to vote?

AngryBlakGuy July 25, 2008 at 4:42 pm

[re=44737]SayItWithWookies[/re]: …more likely a Curry Restaurant.

Rev. Juan MessyCan July 25, 2008 at 4:45 pm

[re=44726]freakishlystrong[/re]: Yeah, cuz the combination of x-infested blankets, alcohol-enabling and seeds of gambling addiction is what we all want.

Hmmm… actually, I’ll take the gambling and the alcohol, but can I get my blanket infested with x-tascy?

I’m messycan so that’s part Indian right? Does it make me, like, native-oroon, or something?

SayItWithWookies July 25, 2008 at 5:02 pm

[re=44746]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: John McCain is aware of the Vindaloo. It can be found at a troubled spot on the Iraqi-Indian border.

RobPetrified July 25, 2008 at 5:10 pm

Beercheck seems to be a busy Native American type boy lately….

sanantonerose July 25, 2008 at 5:31 pm

[re=44718]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: AND handkerchiefs.

In other news, Dick Cheney and a Satanic Coven sacrificed an innocent in preparation for the Republican Convention in St. Paul.

They could have doubled down and cursed both messes at the same time for all we know. Did anyone catch the words? What the hell does “hiya, hiya, hiya hiya, etc. mean anyways?

sati demise July 25, 2008 at 10:31 pm

[re=44751]Rev. Juan MessyCan[/re]: win!

McCain would go to the casino in Camp Verde.
By an Anasazi ruin run by the White Mountain Apaches.
Cindy can fly him to Vegas, anytime, baby! Visit old friends, my friend.

What was that the noble red man taught us, bury a fish with ever vote out of Chicago, the votes multiply that way?

Servo July 27, 2008 at 6:22 pm

I’d like to see them do a TruckNutz hunt a la Dances With Wolves.

Ken Layne,

Say what you like, but the best single tear and deserving of an Oscar was Demi Moore in Ghost. Halle Berry won an Oscar for crying without tears in Monster’s Ball as did Sean Penn in Mystic River. Of course, Sean Penn has made a life’s work of crying without tears.

Sincerely and respectfully,
