What? What is racist about this?Hmm, any Republicans forward some Email lately? Oh yes, sure, here we go: “Diann Jones, a vice chairman of the Collin County Republican Party, has apologized for an e-mail that some local judges denounced as racist.” Hooray! As is usual in such cases, this GOP leader from this Dallas exurb is denying any racist intent in sending this email bitching about the “black house” where Obama is plotting against Americans, an email she sent to all the Republicans in “local Republican clubs,” because the REAL crime is that one of the recipients, a local Republican judge, is kind of tired of his party being a bunch of idiot racists, so he sent it to a bunch of other judges, who will HMMMM pass judgment on Diann Jones, in some Texas form of justice, such as a mild rebuke?

The Dallas Morning News reports:

In an e-mail Tuesday to state District Judge Robert Dry, Jones wrote, “If someone is offended by something in an e-mail, I don’t think forwarding it on to 50 other people [that never originally saw it] is really prudent … That action simply multiplies the offensive e-mail and enlarges the damage.”

Yeah, jeez, let’s not tell everybody the GOP is just a fringe-nut group of old white people FURIOUS about this negro in the White House.

Oh, and the thing this idiot “Diann Jones” was complaining about? A proposed Texas state tax on gun purchases. This is what brought this county GOP leader to the conclusion that she simply must send an email to Republican voters clubs that included the hilarious comment: “Another terrific idea from the black house and its minions.”

So, we’ve had the GOP county leader gal who sent out the “Obama Bucks” watermelon-chicken food stamps, the Southern California suburban Republican mayor who sent out the hilarious White House-watermelon garden email, the Florida state committee-woman GOP gal who sent out that “So how did black people travel in airplanes to Obama’s inauguration when they couldn’t get out of New Orleans during Katrina?” email comedy, the Republican mayor in South Carolina forwarding his “just out of curiosity” musings about the Muslim Barack Obama being maybe a character in the Bible (the Devil, in fact), and the Republican mayor of some Georgia town typing a hilarious Facebook status message suggesting Barack Obama should give the Queen of England some typical black-person snacks such as cigarettes and malt liquor.

    The fact that the judge sent out an email sort-of condemning the wording was more a result of how easily emails get leaked to the press and other parties. Covering his ass rather than any sort of actual contrition.

    And this Diann claims she missed the ‘black house’ portion of the email. God, I wished our country would adopt the practice of seppuku when someone screws up. Maybe not applicable in this case but I’m still fixated on Donald Rumsfeld from the Comment of the Day.

    “[on why homosexuality is wrong and not natural]

    When two guy’s have sex they can only penetrate eachother through the crack which I think is disgusting because of all the crap that’s in there. They both must face the same direction and thus one guy’s twig and berries will be projecting from the two. Because no man has a vagina they can’t become one flesh when having normal sex.

    Women don’t have Jimmy and his two buddies hanging around so they can’t naturally penetrate eachother and become one flesh.

    Oral with dudes can’t be natural because the legs will be poking out from different directions as will the ladies if they participate in oral sex.

    Oral with the opposite sex still isn’t natural because you still have the leg issue and often someone is further down if they are not on top of eachother.

    Anal with opposites is still excluded from natural sex because once again your are sticking your think in a crap hole and a womans tits are usually projecting outward.

    When the Bible is speaking of becoming one flesh it literally means that there is nothing sticking out in the clear and that the man and woman are facing eachother. Face to Face.

    And the standard non-apology apology…”if I offended anyone, I didn’t mean to”. When that closet case Lindsay Graham begins to question Sonia in a few weeks, she ought to just read this email aloud and say “agree or disagree, Senator?” As a Texan, I’m ashamed I’m in the same state (thank God I’m in Houston).

    Yes, thank you for dumping on a Texas judge. But to be honest, I voted for a judge in this part of OK who would definitely do this kind of thing. He served on the Library Board in Tulsa Co and didn’t mention Jesus once in the info brochure a former judge friend of mine handed out when he introduced him at a community event. Librairies? (First line of defense of the First Amendment) and no Jesus? Same as a hammer and sickle shirt in these parts.

    Sometimes even in assbackwards states like–well, like all the states down here. judges are a cut above.

    And then sometimes they’re like the judge in Little Dixie who was thrown off his bench by the tool his was using to pleasure himself during trials. No, I am not making that up. That guy would have so forwarded that email. The black prez have the rednecks, hillbillies, Jesus fundies and other morons absolutely, banana-up-their-ass crazy. (I don’t know. I was watching Law and Order and trying up with something different for crazy so the Hammer o’ban wouldn’t come down on me.) (BUTA may become my new sig line, however).
