McCain-Palin Wingnuts Mourn Obama’s Granny

by Ken Layne

Stay classy.At least America’s fringe-right conservatives will show a bit of those family values we hear so much about when, say, the Democratic presidential nominee’s ailing grandmother dies, at age 87, right? Right? Oh, sorry, what were we thinking. Happy black president’s day eve, wingnuts.

From, obviously, the Free Republic website:

  • They should do an ice test to see how long she’s been in the freezer.
  • Better pull her absentee ‘cuz she was dead on Election Day.
  • I think that “event” took place 2 weeks ago. Otherwise it would have made great political news for these last 48 hours to talk about Obama’s grandma and take the focus off of his exposed coal comments.
  • Seriously, has anyone actually seen this woman in recent years? If Obama has some of his thugs guarding her (and if there is, indeed, a body) I hope they do an autopsy to make sure Granny’s passing was a natural event.
  • So Barry goes and see’s granny. Granny dies day before election. She is probably one know who really knows where he was born. Well as the church lady used to say.”isn’t that special”
  • have you people been having problems with computer viruses? This is unbelievable…
  • This is what I think happened. He told them to pull the plug on her. Now if you bring up the bankrupting the coal industry, it will seem insensitive and cruel. I am sorry but this man is just plain evil. I know his grandmother raised him, but her success as a parent is questionable. BO’s mother was a moonbat and ol Granny was a leftist hack. That being said, I pray for her soul.
  • She was swindled into raising someone else’s child. I do not believe that hussein is half white.
  • My thoughts exactly pinkbell. There are probably a million people in the world that died at the same time. All these threads about it here seem a bit much. Call me what you will, but this is about as important as a dump I took a week ago.
  • Is he going to tax her now that she’s dead?
  • She was also a communist sympathizer along with her husband, a long and proud tradition of socialists. Oh, and good friends with Frank Marshall Davis, a signed up Communist, who they introduced little Barry to. One hell of a woman, yup.
  • Murdered? It’s not murder when it’s for the chosen one. The dems will blame it on lack of universal health care and get a double bang for the buck. Obama will forgive her racism and find another family member to use and throw under the bus.

Why stop at Freepers – the resident WingNuts at WaPo.com are in full form as well:
From The Trail post, California GOP Files FEC Complaint Over Obama Visit to Grandmother

Whoa There Dimocrat Socialists with the Attacks on Character!

This is the exact same beloved “Tutu” Barack Hussein so callously “Threw under his Bus” as being “Racist” back at the beginning of his campaign;

user-of-owls November 3, 2008 at 6:01 pm

Ok, I’m apologizing again and likely risking expulsion or revulsion, but fuck it. This poem by Wislawa Szymborska is apt in terms of both the promise and the horror that humanity holds, and thus apt for these last two posts. It’s owls’ catharsis…sorry.

A WORD ON STATISTICS
by Wislawa Szymborska
(translated from the Polish by Joanna Trzeciak)

Out of every hundred people,
those who always know better:
fifty-two.

Unsure of every step:
almost all the rest.

Ready to help,
if it doesn’t take long:
forty-nine.

Always good,
because they cannot be otherwise:
four — well, maybe five.

Able to admire without envy:
eighteen.

Led to error
by youth (which passes):
sixty, plus or minus.

Those not to be messed with:
four-and-forty.

Living in constant fear
of someone or something:
seventy-seven.

Capable of happiness:
twenty-some-odd at most.

Harmless alone,
turning savage in crowds:
more than half, for sure.

Cruel
when forced by circumstances:
it’s better not to know,
not even approximately.

Wise in hindsight:
not many more
than wise in foresight.

Getting nothing out of life except things:
thirty
(though I would like to be wrong).

Balled up in pain
and without a flashlight in the dark:
eighty-three, sooner or later.

Those who are just:
quite a few, thirty-five.

But if it takes effort to understand:
three.

Worthy of empathy:
ninety-nine.

Mortal:
one hundred out of one hundred –
a figure that has never varied yet.

Lionel Hutz Esq. November 3, 2008 at 6:02 pm

There, that felt pretty good. Cathartic even.

When I was a kid, the vast-majority Krisschun kids used to say of the picked-on losers in class, “I love him in God’s way, but I hate him in my way.” This is why I couldn’t be civil to those people until I went through group therapy in college with some older fundies and realized that MOST of them grow out of that bullshit. Most.

On the plus side, this comment from the WSJ actually made my eyes well up in a good way:

Regardless of the outcome of the election, it is a big deal. I interrupted my class to tell them of the sad news of Obama’s grandmother passing. I said that on the eve of what may be his great achievement, he does not have his mom, his dad nor his grandmother or grandfather. One student put it in perspective. “Yes,” she said, “but he has us…”

From the Mudflats blog:
Troopergate II Report to be Released at 3:30 Election Eve!

Independent Investigator Tim Petumenos, who was hired by the Personnel Board just said he will release his troopergate report at 3:30 p.m. today. This is the second report, following on the heels of a Legisltative Investigation whose report last month indicated that Palin had abused her power in the firing of former Commissioner of Public Safety Walt Monegan.

Kyle Hopkins from the Anchorage Daily News is on the scene.

He said the report would cover Gov. Sarah Palin’s firing of Walt Monegan as well as a separate complaint from Anchorage activist Andree McLeod alleging alleges that state hiring practices were circumvented for a Palin supporter.

Petumenos has two staff members with him, and each has a thick, yellow-bound document on their lap. I should note that when I called
Personnel Board chair Debra English before the meeting to ask about
the Palin investigation, she didn’t say anything but recommended
showing up.

Bet the Free Republic skips this.

Get ready. This will be the next four years. This is the right’s new thing. If they don’t win, they de-legitimize whoever did (if they win, they tap the phones of everyone they think doesn’t support them). They did it to Clinton (Vince Foster, Rose Law Firm, finally Monica, but he did that to himself…well, ya’ know). Faux News, WSJ, etc., will find four years’ worth of stories about ACORN, Rev. Wright, something he said to someone two years ago and just shoot off their mouths. It’s now the permanent campaign — both ways.

The best pic ever is of little Barry and Grandpa at the beach: http://www.blogowogo.com/blog_article.php?aid=1755986&t=12 (Read the caption about Sean Hannity throwing a stick at them.) Gee Barry sure looks like he can’t stand white people in that pic.

Coffee Clutcher 79 November 3, 2008 at 9:02 pm

My very hard working, blue collar 88 year old grandmother told me in the spring that she wasn’t sure she could vote for a black man. She was pretty old school, not hateful, but old school. We chatted about it over the coming months and I gently encouraged her to just check him out. About six weeks ago, I asked her what she thought about Barry. She took a breath and then said she was so excited to vote for such a smart and kind man — that he is just what the country needs now — that it really doesn’t matter what color he is — that folks need to be smarter than just looking at his skin color. She then told me that this was the first year she had ever watched the whole convention and that she was never prouder to call herself a Democrat. I nearly dropped my coffee.

About three weeks ago, we talked again. She had already returned her absentee ballot and was thinking about writing a letter to the editor — something she would have never dreamed of before.

About two weeks ago my sweet grandma died. The last conversation we had was mostly about politics and she asked me to make sure and call her when we knew Obama had won.

It is so very sad to hear about Obama’s grandmother because she is the last real connection he has to his past, his childhood, his roots.

Fuck the bitters and haters. I hope there is a big grandma party in the beyond.

And fuck them again.

[re=162178]smellyal8r[/re]: The best defense is a good offense. Don’t underestimate the fact that Barry was raised in Chicago politics. I think (hope) he, Rahm E. and posse are ready and waiting for this. They need to keep their foot on the neck of the GOP by driving the continued investigations of DOJ, 2004 vote rigging in Ohio, and all the other crap those lying fucktards perpetrated while in power.

Polly Sigh-Entist November 3, 2008 at 9:20 pm

just got back from election day voting location set-up here in the ‘ol battleground where I had to endure a bunch of choice gems from a group of smokin’ and jokin’ republitard a-holes (who talk way better than they work) yammering away about turning out “the base” and how my precinct is bound to have a lot of provisional voters because of the apartment complex across the street (innuendo anyone?) and giving out false information about how absentee ballots should be immediately turned away – WRONG – generally just being total a-holes.

PSA: guys/gals don’t let asshole pollworkers intimidate you most of them are ignorant, elderly dumbasses and the ones that aren’t are crafty motherfu**ers who are up to something. Very few of them are competent human beings whose presence is non-partisan. If you have questions about how they are operating and in particular if they challenge you or try to make you vote provisionally – call your B.O.E..

[re=161969]mush[/re]: Dying “on cue” can occur from a chronic terminal illness I believe. My mother held on until she saw me in a cap and gown at my college graduation. After 7 years battling ovarian cancer, she finally could let go and die in peace. My thoughts about the timing of Toot’s death at first were like most…I wish she could have lived at least a few days more. The more I thought about it, I was reminded of my mother’s dying and her death.

Perhaps Toot was filled with complete peace that allowed her to breathe out just one more time. Maybe she “knew” that her Barry was going to be the next President, maybe the Lord even revealed this to her. This morning, hours before I heard the announcement of her death, I noticed serious bags under Obama’s eyes, and what looked like a nick under his left eye. Now, we know why. Toot’s presence will strengthen Barry and his family especially in the hours and days ahead, and with her last act of a grandmother’s love, she has lifted the veil one more time on the darkness and sham that is the Pharisee/Sadducee wing of the Republican party.

Whenever I’m convinced that the sane attitude to some news story is perfectly obvious, and that even the stupidest and most hideously deranged wingnut would have to exercise a bit of restraint, I go to freerepublic.com, and my expectations for these dimwits are lowered even further. My favorite recent foray into that world was shortly after the Shirley “the Witch of Grosse Pointe Farms” Nagel story broke. The FreeRepublic support and celebration of her bravery against the pint-sized socialist hordes were resounding and inspirational.

bluebrazos November 3, 2008 at 10:11 pm

Apologies for the length but I’ve gotta share this.

I just finished doing local get-out-the vote calls here in Brazos county in Texas. We’re trying to turn this mixed rural/suburb county blue. Suburbs and rural areas in Texas are ragingly red, so this would be a huge change, but we’ve got a lot of energy. Our ground game here kicks butt: we won our precinct 65/35 in the primaries over Hillary–but won the caucus 76/24. (Hopefully y’all are all aware that Hopey won Texas precisely because of this disparity between primary and caucus, despite what that cursed mainstream media said for months after the primary.) And the tide is on our side. Harris county, immediately to our north where Houston is, will go blue for the first time in 44 years.

Over the past couple of weeks I called, um, a lot of people. Today I was talking to people in and around Rosharon, Texas. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=rosharon,+tx&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=35.136115,63.808594&ie=UTF8&ll=29.351357,-95.468445&spn=0.151121,0.249252&t=h&z=12

We’ve got some serious old-school dems here. I had an 83-year old white woman tell me that yes, she plans to vote tomorrow, and yes, honey, she knows where the polling location is because she’s being going to that same church for 55 years. And she said she’s voting straight dem with a countrified accent that I usually expect to hear from racists. I almost cried.

I talked to the nicest 171-year old black man anyone’s ever met. Seriously, he sounded old enough to have been born into slavery. He answered the phone “Praise the Lord”, probably because he was happy he got to answer the phone just one more time. He and his extended family are voting straight dem tomorrow. To the rightwingers who think they’ve got a monopoly on piety and family values, I send the heartiest “fuck you”.

I talked to a white 38-year old country woman who was practically vibrating with joy at the thought of Obama winning tomorrow. “Wouldn’t it be wonderful, after these last 8 years?”, she asked. “Do you think we’ll win?” She said “we”. This middle-aged country woman in Rosharon, Texas, puts herself on the same side as an African-American.

And I heard these same archetypes many times over.

To try to make a tenuous connection with the topic: All the hate that came out in that freeper thread is horrid and makes me want to smash things. But for those who have ragged (not without some cause) on Texas as a whole, I’d like to give some hope: the stereotypical Texas isn’t the real Texas any more than southern Virginia isn’t the real Virginia. And the stereotypical Texas is declining. So I’d also like to give you this: I’m proud of my state, so lay the fuck off of knocking the whole place. Me and my 171-year old homey and that 83-year old granny and my 38-year old neighbor are here too, and we don’t appreciate being lumped in with the fucktards who deserve all the shit you can dish out.

I feel like our whole country is waking up after a frickin bender, collectively trying to figure out what happened these last eight years and nursing a headache. Time to send Bush and his pals to the new ranch in Paraguay and for the rest of us to start straightening all this mess out.

Rev. Juan MessyCan November 3, 2008 at 10:34 pm

Arghh!

I’m with the thought that Obama and Tutu are/were strong enough people with great love for one another to do what was right with a cool head: SuperHope flew to her side at her last, and she said go back and fight to win. Hearing about her life, there was no other way this could’ve gone, nor that the values she instilled in the child she helped raise would make him any less upstanding as a grown man than I believe he is.

What I hate is that now Palin’s fucktard religious cell-mates (to use the language of their ministry organization — albeit via Kos) can go deeper into their hole-y spirit and prove some dark ominous nature to our shining beacon of righteousness; they’re taught their prayers chase away witches and cause pain or death to evil people (hence the witch-protecting spell video).

Why can’t someone write a “Left immolated Behind” so these yahoos can start devouring one another?

Coffee Clutcher 79: Your grandma story made me cry again. I had already cried about Barry’s granny. I’m black, and I’m used to thinking that racism does not change in people of a certain age. Even though your grandma is gone; she still managed to teach me something!! I’m agnostic-y, but I will send out a prayer to her when I vote tomorrow. Please write a formal article and share this story with everybody. Your grandma she definitely with Barry’s granny cheering him on!!

My four African American grandparents and my black parents didn’t live to see this or even to dream of this day; even I didn’t believe it would happen until earlier this year. There really is something to this whole hope and change diet. I highly recommend it!!!

They just revealed that Obama’s Granny’s absentee ballot vote WILL count!!! YEAH!!!! Hooray For All Grandmas!!!!!!

Now I’m going to go cry some more, and tomorrow I’m going to start hugging strangers of all races.

Racist, in irrational self defense, believe that melanin, ethnic origin, economic status is everything that can define a person. But in denial, they cannot expect such would have ever be applied to them. Had they looked only back. Many Southern planters were Irish, to the English pure trash when their Irish families were in Erie. In the North East coal regions, many miners were Welsh. Their families achieved stability but hated any negroes in their towns, never recalling that, from Elizabethan times, the Welsh were the comic “steppin’ fetchits” of English plays.
