Cokie Roberts Does Not Want Barack Obama To Vacation In Exotic Locale Where Foreign Teevee Shows Such As ‘Magnum P.I.’ And ‘Hawaii Five-O’ Were Filmed

by Sara K. Smith

Oh good God. It is probably time for either Cokie Roberts or Wonkette to retire, now that we have said basically the same thing about Barack Obama’s elitist vacation to some place called “Hawaii,” which is located in the lower left-hand corner of the map right next to Alaska — and yet has burning hot summers, whereas Alaska is forever enshrouded in snow. Why won’t Barack Obama apologize for visiting his grandmother in this curious “Mystery Spot” where many Americans go on package tours? [YouTube]

ah Hawaii, the White Trash Valhalla

Maybe he can stand in front of a blue screen and just pretend that he’s someplace else, like Cokie did.

dollabrand August 11, 2008 at 12:30 pm

Hawaii is “some exotic” place. I get it. There’s Polenyseans (sp) and Japanese and Island people there.

Norbert August 11, 2008 at 12:31 pm

Myrtle Beach, hell! He should be at Dollyworld

Carleaux The Pup August 11, 2008 at 12:33 pm

She said “indices” which sounds an awful lot like Indonesian!

The Real JR Revisted August 11, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Hawaii is a state full of brown people. Brown People States should be reduced to Filipino status, or at the very least Puerto Rico status. Meaning: places from which we import our cooks and nannies but do not have voting powers.

This is the America Cokie Roberts can believe in.

SayItWithWookies August 11, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Besides, his going there only boosts the morale of the Muslim separatists on Oahu.

Destonio August 11, 2008 at 12:34 pm

God, what a scold. Imagine Obama having the NERVE to go on vacation while Edwards’ wife is suffering from cancer.

Norbert August 11, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Obama refuses to visit troops; visits very old white woman instead — his Mama Mama

Texan Bulldoggette August 11, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Like Cokie has ever been to Myrtle Beach….she’s got Hamptons written all over her. She’s also an extremely bitter & annoying HRC supporter (one would assume). She’s like Gerrie Ferraro, except Cokie’s filter between her brain & her mouth works a little better than old Gerrie’s does.

The Incomparable Tiny Valdez August 11, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Didn’t the Clintons always decide their vacation destinations by taking a poll?

The Real JR Revisted August 11, 2008 at 12:35 pm

lol… the YouTube comments are actually top choice:

Cokie, you ignorant haole slut

N8Ma August 11, 2008 at 12:35 pm

MYRTLE BEACH!?!?!?

What, and fly on Hooters Air?

Will Cokie serve the drinks?

weirdiowasculpture August 11, 2008 at 12:36 pm

Nice to have the Stripey Sox Buttseks Three back again this week, but I still miss Purple Butt Girl. Will she ever be coming back again?

mr.november August 11, 2008 at 12:37 pm

We’ll get TC to chopter Obama back to the mainland, Cokie. Are you settled?

Sean O August 11, 2008 at 12:38 pm

But honestly, does this surprise anyone? Massachusetts/New York/etc were the birthplace of the American Revolution, and the repubs have spent decades saying we hate America. Hawaii being in a different time zone is way too scary and furren for good, hard working Americans to handle.

NotNotLickingToads August 11, 2008 at 12:38 pm

[re=56518]Norbert[/re]: Fuck that…he should take his vacation in a steel mill. His family can sun themselves in the sparks and can surf titanium sheets across waves of molten metal. Every meal will be a quadruple cheeseburger topped with Freedom Fries and an apple pie, washed down with Steel City Reserve beer, and all television watching will consist of NASCAR and rodeos.

AngryBlakGuy August 11, 2008 at 12:39 pm

…I love how she admits that Barry’s grandmother lives there and Hawai is a state followed by a statement that is completely ignorant and false.

Honor and Dignity August 11, 2008 at 12:41 pm

I read somewhere that one time Hawaiian terrorists bombed some harbor in Myrtle Beach where we get our pearls and gave FDR the Polish clap. Maybe that’s what she’s alluding to.

lilblackcorvette August 11, 2008 at 12:41 pm

[re=56534]weirdiowasculpture[/re]: let it go. she needed her space, she thinks you guys would be better as friends, that mental rash should clear up with some ointment, etc. IT”S OVER. dammit

AngryBlakGuy August 11, 2008 at 12:43 pm

…maybe he should have went to Sturgis and offered his heavily medicated bimbo wife up to thousands of meth crazed bikers who weren’t even there to see him in the first place. But I digress!

Doglessliberal August 11, 2008 at 12:43 pm

[re=56529]The Incomparable Tiny Valdez[/re]: actually, I think they went to the Vineyard and the Hamptons and stayed for free in their rich friends’ houses.

The Real JR Revisted August 11, 2008 at 12:43 pm

Just because this never gets old:

I have the utmost respect and aloha for black people – who have already suffered so much due to racial discrimination and acts of hatred. I did not mean to add yet another slap in the face to an entire race of people who have brought so many gifts to this world. I am ashamed of myself and I pledge to do whatever I can to repair this damage I have caused. In Hawaii, we have something called Ho’oponopono, where people come together to resolve crises and restore peace and balance.

Wasn’t Hawaii where McSame first committed adultery with Mistress Cindy while still married to that crippled trollop?

Norbert August 11, 2008 at 12:44 pm

[re=56538]NotNotLickingToads[/re]: do we have any steel mills left? maybe he should vacation as a walmart greeter. and this “Reserve” beer you suggest sounds a bit uppity — what’s wrong with plain ol’ regular Steel City? Your writing sounds Belgian, Toads.

McCain is probably on the same page a her, as Hawaii wasn’t a state when he was born.

[re=56553]thefrontpage[/re]: She is just a humble, hard-working American who got where she is by dint of her own labor. I am sure the fact that her father was a senator, and then her mother took his seat after he died, had nothing to do with her getting her job and access to sources. I know she earned everything she has and never did anything elitist.

NotNotLickingToads August 11, 2008 at 12:55 pm

[re=56550]Norbert[/re]: That’s true…steel mill workers actually make a living wage. Yes, Obama and his family should vacation in the Garden Department of a Wal-Mart in Dayton, Ohio.

Something about touching down on an aircraft carrier in Pearl Harbor and a guided wind-surfing tour of the Arizona…

It was pure snark.

V572625694 August 11, 2008 at 1:04 pm

[re=56572]Doglessliberal[/re]: Hale Boggs was a congress-critter, not a senator. But that is indeed how Cokie got to be an NPR superstar. That’s how a meritocracy works, isn’t it? Her daddy was on the Warren Commission that investigated JFK’s assassination (along w/Jerry Ford, who was an FBI mole we now know), and you should have heard Cokie screech with indignation one Monday morning when someone hinted that the Commission was less than a choir of angels delivering God’s Righteous Truth.

Darehead August 11, 2008 at 1:05 pm

She’s empress of the OTHERS. ‘Cokie’ is just a nickname for ”Jacob.’

StripesAndPlaids August 11, 2008 at 1:05 pm

Cokie Roberts is so white elitis. Doesn’t she know black biker week at Myrtle Beach is over this year?

And when he’s visiting the troops, we will start a clock counting the days, hours and minutes he is spending away from America, the country he hates.

populucious August 11, 2008 at 1:07 pm

I understand that his “quote unquote” grandmother, if that is her real name, lives there, as well as his sister and other family members, and that it is a “quote unquote” STATE (but we all know it was just a pity statehood) where he was BORN and ATTENDED HIGH SCHOOL and is the closest thing to a permanent home base that this man the press wants to paint as totally rootless has, but I’m an ACTUAL RICH WHITE ELITIST from Wellesley (a word so elitist it has at least 2 more ‘e’s than are absolutely necessary) and how else can I convince the planet that this son of a hard working single mother who busted ass to get himself through college is out of touch with the American people, none of whom have ever spent a holiday visiting their grandmother in the state in which they were born.

MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend August 11, 2008 at 1:08 pm

I think someone needs to start advocating term limits on political pundits.

AngryBlakGuy August 11, 2008 at 1:08 pm

…now that I think of it where in the U.S. could Barry vacation that would actually be worth going to that conservatives wouldn’t call elitist or out of touch? My guess is a trailer park somewhere in north Texas(and not one of those “fancy” ones with a pool)!

Oscar Folsom Cleveland August 11, 2008 at 1:09 pm

Ah, Cokie, dear Cokie. You are a big celebrity now, doyenne of the Washington feminist press corps, inheritor of the mantle of Katharine Graham. And as always you are so utterly right: Barry should not be in “Hawaii”, a fake state if ever there was one and such a crazy mixed up patchwork of creeds, religions, ethnic “backgrounds” and polyglot faces.

Absolutely, this is not the image that Hopey needs to get elected, indeed. I suggest that the Osama family vacation, instead, in Georgia – say, Stone Mountain, for example – or in Wyoming – no, not Jackson Hole but someplace Cheney where Michelle and the girls can shoot antelope and Barack can kibbitz with the boys down at the bar.

[re=56601]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: No, not a trailer park in North Texas. He should buy some ranch in the middle of nowhere Texas, bought from the money given to him from his wealthy parents and through the largess of family connections and there he can do ‘merican type things like brush away tumbleweeds or go bike riding or fish in his pre-stocked lake.

[re=56607]Doglessliberal[/re]: Like mother, like daughter. Her NPR commentaries and yarns were good once, because she did know a lot about how government works.

Cokie Roberts is an awesome spokesperson for the proletariat. She is a true working class hero, and also her really rich husband and her family.

ABC and National Public Radio’s Cokie Roberts–sister of DC’s most prominent lobbyist, Tommy Boggs, of Patton, Boggs & Blow–pulled in an estimated $30,00 for a 1995 chat with the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida. JM Family Enterprises, a $4 billion firm, picked up the check. In October 1994, Roberts and her husband, reporter Steve Roberts of U.S. News & World Report, netted $45,000 for a joint appearance at a Chicago bank. (Washington Babylong, 29)

Too much for one piece.
1. Myrtle Beach’s only real purpose anymore is to play golf. Even if Bama is going to lose south Carolina anyway, I don’t think he would want to piss off any potential voters there from other states (Virginia, North Carolina, anyone?) by his disrupted presence during their summer vacation. Besides, any real golf enthusiast would rather play in Hawaii. Bama on the links was a nice visual. Just hope Hopey avoided any terrorist fist bumps.
2. When will old TV media finally get rid of the has beens like Roberts? This baby boomer boorish backlash to the rest of the country finally being sick of that generation’s self-obsession must end already. Boomers are has-beens (and, actually, most are never-weres).
3. An afro-american family on the Vineyard? A southerner like Roberts would be appalled.

Cokie vacays on Nantucket,
So rustic she shits in a bucket.
No elitist is she,
In the land of the free,
Those uppity Hawaiians can suck it.

[re=56675]Vanity Smurf[/re]: Bravo. I tried, but couldn’t get further than “fuck it.”

Darehead August 11, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Auwe! Barry just visited a replica of a 12th century Buddhist Temple in Hawai’i. Barry is a Radical Buddhist Exotic Christian Muslim Communist!

sezme August 11, 2008 at 2:25 pm

She’s totally right: Hawaii is a “state” in the same way that Louisiana is. In other words, it shouldn’t be one. It’s full of people with peculiar taste in music and with whom one should avoid being seen, and it presents altogether the wrong image. Especially in summer. What kind of American would go to Hawaii in summer?

sati demise August 11, 2008 at 2:25 pm

[re=56663]EnBuenOra[/re]: jeez,

First Cokie is in Nantucket and now Patton, Boggs & Blow.

WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Cant wait for the Wonkette photo essay of Barry on the Beach!
I can recommend Kahuna Kabobs on Maui…great food and
they serve the “best 8 inches of meat in town!”

[re=56680]Darehead[/re]: And worships a Hawaiian shark-god, as we well know. Any idol’s better than Jeebus!

SpecialHorse August 11, 2008 at 2:30 pm

It sure is big of her to acknowledge that Hawaii is actually a state. And living on the west coast, I identify much more with Hawaii than I do South Carolina. What’s Myrtle Beach?

Vanity Smurf August 11, 2008 at 2:31 pm

or maybe…

Cokie went off to Nantucket,
Drinking beer right out of a bucket,
She got really drunk
And fell in a funk,
Like when Sam Donaldson told her to suck it.

pondscum August 11, 2008 at 2:34 pm

He should have stayed in Illinois and gone to the state fair. BUTTER COW!

Darehead August 11, 2008 at 2:35 pm

Well, to be fair, should we allow “Jack” McCain to go back to Panama?

[re=56689]V572625694[/re]: He probably intends to sacrifice Malia to Pele, too.

Dramatist August 11, 2008 at 2:40 pm

I am from Hawaii. I grew up there. Shame on you, Cokie Roberts. I don’t call you exotics for being from the Alternate Dimension of the Perpetually Stupid.

RuperttheBear August 11, 2008 at 2:42 pm

“No where near closing the deal”? Does she mean with her? I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want close the deal with her. She probably yells out the names of long dead politicians when she climaxes.

[re=56700]Vanity Smurf[/re]:

There once was a media whore named Cokie
Who blathered on about Hopey.
When asked what’s in her head, she just smiled and said,
“I’m just one O short of a Cookie.”

[re=56673]raider12[/re]: The Vineyard actually has a large, afluent, African/American summer crowd. All of them uppity and elitist. It would be the perfect place for Oboma to vacation.

WadISay August 11, 2008 at 2:53 pm

Maybe it would be OK if Barry rented out one of John McCain’s eight vacation homes.

Several years ago I saw (live) Cokie interviewed by Terrie Gross. Talk about full of yourself. She recommended all women take some “me” time off from their work for reflection and self-assessment. I thought this would be a particularly lovely idea if your working at Wal-Mart and have a second job at 711, as long as you were a Senator’s daughter, worth a couple of mill, and had a big-earning spouse. Cokie is what’s inside Washington insiders.

[re=56675]Vanity Smurf[/re]: Huzzah!

Vanity Smurf August 11, 2008 at 2:55 pm

The once was a monster named Cokie,
And she said lots of shit that was dopey.
A media leech,
She let out a screech:
“It’s all about Hillz, not Hopey!”

lawrenceofthedesert August 11, 2008 at 2:55 pm

Yazza, Ms. Cokie, nex’ time I gwine ta go down to Miss’sippi and fish fo’ catfish! Can I bring y’all ‘nudda mint julep, Ms. Cokie?

By de way, Ms. Cokie, when I gwine ta go, I gwine pack my britches in dat papah bag y’all can’t report yo’ way out of.

[re=56673]raider12[/re]: As a never-was baby boomer I agree with you
while still wanting to break my boot off in your ass somehow. When the
19,000 vacuum tubes on my ENIAC warm up I will challenge you to a race
to find a waterskiing squirrel on the intertubes.

You will get old too, if you are lucky. People will laugh when you tell
stories of how you used to have to wait for a page to load while waiting
for an ad to be served, or how in the olden days Obama had a staycation
because gas was “$4000 a buck” and there was no more ozone layer or oxygen.

Fighting Bill August 11, 2008 at 2:56 pm

You heard it here first: Rielle Hunter is Cokie Roberts’ illegitimate daughter!

Cokie was born Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs in 1943 in New Orleans. As a senior at Wellesley College outside of Boston, she had a brief fling with the younger Steve Tyler (born Stephen Victor Tallarico in 1948), who was soon to become the lead singer of the the Boston hard rock band Aerosmith. She gave up her child at birth to the Drucks of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, who named her Lisa Jo Druck, later to become Rielle Jaya James Druck and finally Rielle Hunter. Since Roberts and Hunter reconnected in 2002, Roberts has supported Hunter a yearly stipend.

Darehead August 11, 2008 at 2:56 pm

Anyone think the Grand Veep-lamation will be made from Hawai’i?

DemmeFatale August 11, 2008 at 3:08 pm

I wish I had relatives living in Hawaii (instead of Fresno, CA).

Suck it, Cokie!

StripesAndPlaids August 11, 2008 at 3:19 pm

I don’t think Michelle will allow him to ruin their vacation with the inevitable media frenzy.

lilblackcorvette August 11, 2008 at 3:50 pm

[re=56663]EnBuenOra[/re]: Boggs and Blow? and her name is Cokie? this is a joke right?

Gopherit v2.0 August 11, 2008 at 4:04 pm

[re=56730]Cape Clod[/re]: And that’s really the crux of the problem. If he’d gone there, he’d be an elitist snob. If he goes and visits his family in Hawaii….elitist snob. What he really needs to do is find a fashionable flophouse in Harlem. Maybe he should take Cokie, too.

JSDC007 August 11, 2008 at 5:03 pm

I guess now we know why she’s called Cokie.

Looks like you’ve been snorting the stuff, “Cokie.”

DangerousLiberal August 11, 2008 at 7:00 pm

[re=56590]V572625694[/re]: Cokie’s dad was on the plane with Congressman Nick Begich (human-AK) that went down between Anchorage and Juneau in 1972 or whatever. Don Young (protoliterate dingbat-AK) won the special election for his seat. Now, Don Dung is in big doody over the same sort of shenanigans that have doomed Uncle Ted (Nutter-AK) to the scrap heap of history, and his seat’s going to be taken by (wait for it)…….Mark Begich (A modicum of common sense-AK). Wheels within wheels, man.

Slutty_Chola_Cobbler August 12, 2008 at 4:20 am

I am thinking COKIE is a nickname from when she was a banged up coke whore from the days she like hung out in New York with other cokeheads and stuff.

But I am more interested in her birth moniker:

Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs.. Such an impressive name for this in touch intellectual.. It’s as tough as the botox concrete holding her face together!
