by Jim Newell

“Lacasse put the sign in his front yard four days ago. ‘If I see anybody touching that sign, I got a club sitting right over there,’ Lacasse said.” [Central Florida News 13]

Cool, comfortable muslin.

ZippyD September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

Fuck me. I’m not setting foot outside ever agin.

TGY September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

Goddammit, this makes me mad! GET A BRAIN, MORAN!

Who knew that Barry was so weavable into light dresses? On the other hand, I suppose he’s now a man of the cloth.

Devil Anse September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

Half breeds scare me

AnnieGetYourFun September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

What would a half-breed muslin feel like? What would it be bred with? Hemp? Acetate?

Borat September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

Impressive. What font is that?

RaptorAvatar September 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm

I hear he has sign next to it about how Barry’s plan for healtcare plan would make Linen proud.

BigBrainOnBrad September 12, 2008 at 2:12 pm

Lacass half-wit moran.

mr.november September 12, 2008 at 2:12 pm

The other half is silk.

V572625694 September 12, 2008 at 2:12 pm

Obama is more of a twill or a damask. But ould he really be 50 percent polyester? No way.

superfecta September 12, 2008 at 2:12 pm

What about Hessians? I suppose we don’t really use hessian as a term for burlap in this country, but if we’re going to fear textiles, we might as well add them to the list. They’ve attacked us before, after all.

bhosp September 12, 2008 at 2:13 pm

See this is actually so stupid that it automatically makes me think its a joke. Nothing about the context makes me go, “ah, this is satire” (unlike certain notable magazine covers) but there’s just something in my head that refuses to believe that anyone is actually this stupid.

Tawmn September 12, 2008 at 2:13 pm

Barry is a gauzy fabric?

[re=94619]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: That’s a revision we can believe in.

regisgoat September 12, 2008 at 2:13 pm

Half breed, how I learned to hate the word!

Squiggyfm September 12, 2008 at 2:13 pm

Obama is “a type of finely-woven cotton fabric, introduced to Europe from the Middle East in the 17th century”? (thanks to McCain for wikipedia).

people are so, so stupid. and this is why mccain–who head-to-head was losing to obama–is suddenly a popular choice because he picked a woman with no qualifications to be his running mate.

Dave J. September 12, 2008 at 2:14 pm

The sign actually reads:

“Obama half: breed muslin!”

What this guy is trying to communicate is that the Obama half of the nation needs to develop improved muslin production facilities for the coming higher temperatures brought about by global warming. Duh.

BrutallyHonestBabes September 12, 2008 at 2:15 pm

Gawd damn muslins. Go back to the fabric store where you belong!

edgydrifter September 12, 2008 at 2:15 pm

No, Lacasse, rest easy and stay your vengeful club. Ain’t nobody going to touch that there sign of yours–in fact, I think it should be preserved in the Smithsonian for all eternity.

The Maverick formerly known as KevoTron September 12, 2008 at 2:16 pm

Obama is a half-breed, “finely woven fabric”??? This changes everything.

[re=94619]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Don’t you touch Lacasse! I demand more signs from this man pronto.

I read your little blurb on Facebook about judging others based on poor grammar. When judging others- pause and ask yourself: Is our children learning?

UnindictedCo-conspirator September 12, 2008 at 2:16 pm

The very nexus of comedy and tragedy, right there on Mr. Lacasse’s lawn.

If Obama turns out to be a rayon blend, I am going to be very pissed off. Tell us the truth, Barry.

nyphotog September 12, 2008 at 2:16 pm

A half breed muslin?! All this time I thought he was a Linenist.

sweetits September 12, 2008 at 2:16 pm

Fucking Florida rednecks. I know, I live in America’s penis. Wonder where this asshat lives…

PioBaroja September 12, 2008 at 2:17 pm

Apparently the other half is pure funk. Also, what kind of club? If I touch the sign do I get in the VIP?

ZippyD September 12, 2008 at 2:17 pm

[re=94647]Dave J.[/re]: Or a Ghandiesque plea to take up our own weaving and thereby liberate ourselves from the oh-pressers?

Keram2 September 12, 2008 at 2:17 pm

Oh man. I totally owe this racist twat. If he hadn’t misspelled “Muslim,” I never would have googled “Muslin” and discovered The Greatest Piece of Art of All Time.

Yes but what’s the thread count???

Lionel Hutz Esq. September 12, 2008 at 2:19 pm

Wait, his name is “Obama”? I thought it was “Osama.”

Still, you have to give him some credit. Unlike a McCain ad, there is some truth here.

I’m concerned about Andy. In the picture it looks like he hammered the nail in the wrong place (to the left of the ‘O’) removed the nail & hammered it into the right place (into the pole). Now how do you hammer the nail in the wrong place on a sign like this?? Or maybe he had used this board for target practice prior to writing his masterpiece on it. What a dingleberry.

I really do plan just randomly sneak up, on my tip toes, while someone plucks violin strings, and touch his sign. Then when he comes after me with the club we’ll blast yakety sax while he chases me around the trailer park.

Dear Walnuts Campaign People,

Please accept these free Sharpies and white painted planks to hand out at all your rallies. Encouraging your supporters to make his or her own personalized campaign sign is a great way to promote your progressive agenda from the grass-roots level. We strongly suggest you prioritize distribution of these supplies to people with as little education as possible (to discourage elitism).

Yours truly,

Dientes

Reminds me of the sign I saw in January: “A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Islamic terrorism”.

It reflects poorly on me, but I can’t decide what pisses me off more, the sentiment or the spelling error. There is NO EXCUSE for misspelling “Muslim” since that fateful day in September. Never forget!!!1!!11!

I do believe the correct term is “poly/cotton blend,” Mr. Lacasse.

If you want to know what it’s like to live down here in Red State World, look at the last essay at this link titled “Report From Florida”

The guy nails it when he says, “They are not reasoning, nor do they want to try. They simply believe what they believe.” There is just no point in arguing with these people.

I remember a friend from lab telling me about how a racist neighbor asked him for proof (as a professional biology geek) that breeding between the races would lead the end of the species, but my friend patiently explained that outcrossing was actually much healthier and lead to a phenomenon called “hybrid vigour”, vs. breeding within the same population which could eventually lead to inbreeding. His neighbor was sad.

He’s a Christian!!!!!!!! What if he was his Father was Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Christian. The Muslim conquest of Egypt took place in AD 639. Despite the political upheaval, Egypt remained a mainly Christian land. However, the gradual conversions to Islam over the centuries changed Egypt from a Christian to a largely Muslim country by the end of the 12th century.
Just because his name is Muslim or his Father came from Kenya does not mean he is one. I have alot friends who are Egyptian and They are 100% Christians. Are you going to blame this on Obama if the county his father happens to be from is Muslim!!!!!!!!! Look what happened to Egypt look what happened to Turkey!!!!!!!!All taken over along time ago!!!!!But there are still people who are God loving people that live in those lands!!!!!!!!!!!
