Charlie came from Miami FLA ...Pleasant moderate-Republican homosexual Charlie Crist is facing a tough primary campaign against … uh, who knows, some teabagger, Marco Rubio … hey wait a minute that sounds like a Mexican? Let’s get an old racist Swiftboater to chime in for Crist, for white (orange-skinned) Americans. Ladies and gentlemen, here’s Colonel Bud Day of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, with his opinions on the coloreds infiltrating Our Politics.

Northwest Flordia Daily News offers this delightful tale:

“You know, we just got through (electing) a politician who can run his mouth at Mach 1, a black one, and now we have a Hispanic who can run his mouth at Mach 1,” Day said. “You look at their track records and they’re both pretty gritty. Charlie has not got a gritty track record.” Day confirmed he was speaking of Obama and Rubio. “You’ve got the black one with the reading thing. He can go as fast as the speed of light and has no idea what he’s saying,” Day said. “I put Rubio in that same category, except I don’t know if he’s using one of those readers.”

Wait a minute, so the minorities are learning to read, and then using it against white illiterates? This is, frankly, an outrage.

(We know, we know, this idiot is trying and failing to come up with some kind of “word thing” that means “teleprompter,” which teabaggers have repeated more than any single word besides “socialism” since Obama was elected. Senile old racist is senile.)

Charlie Crist responded by saying he “could not be more grateful” for this old racist shitbag’s endorsement, adding that “Florida old heterosexual people should know that I am One of Them, except for the heterosexual part.” [Via Dave Weigel’s Washington Independent]

    Don’t know why people think the Republicans are racist. Can’t think of a single reason. Nope. It’s flat out communist to think they’re racist assholes.

  • comicbookguy

    C’mon. You’re making that up. Nobody says that anymore. It’s like saying “This colored fellow, his hands are dirty, but if you look at the palm of his hand it’s less dirty.”

    And people listened to this guy talk about John Kerry?

    Stop. Just. Stop.

  • Cape Clod

    Give the old racist a break will you? WALNUTS! was the only company he had for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN!!!!!

  • Long Form Def Certificate

    Rubio is Cuban, which in Florida is more than white enough. & Crist’s predessor, John Ellis Bush was married to a veritable Messican. They’re inclusive, down there

    Don’t tell that to Little Haiti, though. They might not agree so much.

    On a lighter note, though, it’s nice to see Andy Richter might be able to find work post-Tonite Show. He can make a dramatic turn as Mark Foley in the biopic.

  • S.Luggo

    “Charlie has not got a gritty track record.”

    And ANOTHER unrehearsed endorsement for KY!

    You can’t tell me there isn’t some leather-skinned fortyish cougar with big tits and comically named children, ready to spout platitudes at the drop of a damn hat. This pisses me off. Almost as much as all those black people monopolizin’ C-SPAN.

    This is a battleground state for these clowns. They’ve got to figure out where the teabaggers fit in their plans. Crist is not so easy as Scazzafava to make disappear. They tried, but it looks like he has enough political support and $$$$ to stand in the teabagger’s way. It’ll be interesting.
    snark on
    I despise swiftboaters more than teabaggers. But that’s like saying a tooth abscess is worse than a kidney stone.

  • Hemp Dogbane

    Day seems clean and articulate. Well, not clean. And not so articulate, but anyone could forget the word teleprompter while dissing the uppity black guy. The articulate, uppity black guy.

  • Whitey

    Oy, vey ist mir. First thing, Fort Walton Beach. There’s no fort, and no beach. The name is fluffed up to appeal to tourist types.

    Second, this area is FINO — Florida in name only. It’s Alabama, really, at its atavistic worst. Here in the Panhandle, senile racist retired military assholes are the LIBERALS, relatively speaking. Southern Baptists are the Unitarians. Hispanics are the black people, and black people are the untouchables.

    Third, and it pains me dearly to say this about my Panhandle neighbors, but most deep-Southerners are as stupid as the stereotype. Brainstem stupid. And if saying that makes me a racist, well….

  • schvitzatura

    Gold Hat from Treasure of the Sierra Madre was gritty.

    Charlie is really floundering. The fact that he doesn’t disavow that racist moron is just sad.

    Crist would probably be doing better and garner more respect if he were a) out b) running on his somewhat normal, somewhat moderate conservative record instead of making futile appeals to the knuckle-draggers.

    You know what else the black one can run? The fuckin’ country. The last two you voted for couldn’t run a banana stand in a women’s leper colony. So next time you got nothin’ to say, motherfucker, here’s a suggestion: do it.

    I don’t think Crist is flailing at all. While Rubio enjoys the support of Jeb Bush and the south florida republicans, Crist has strong support from the crackers that run the state. These old farts are not going to allow these upstarts to take anyhting away from them when there’s a deal worth billions, between the state and U.S. sugar, for tons of polluted land in the Everglades.

    [re=545257]Red Zeppelin[/re]: no black ops freakout is necessary. every teabag/glenn beck/conservative racist email fwd story is good for us in the long run. that shit fires up the idiot racist base and disgusts anyone with a brain. we’ve won the past two election cycles at least in part by highlighting the insane posturings and failure of the wingnut fucktard approach to governing, from the gw/cheney desert adventures alllll the way to the most recent gop vice presidential selection. jeet kune do: use your opponent’s aggression to your advantage. let them thrash and wail against reality and obsolescence and let them die, slowly and painfully.

  • Mr Blifil

    Does Col. Bud call into C-Span a lot?

  • Crankenstank

    Col. Day is also a socialist double dipper into not one, but two, Government-run health care systems, and a serial filer of spurious nuisance lawsuits:

    From the wikipoodle:

    Among other endeavors, in 1996 Day filed a class action lawsuit for breach of contract against the United States government on behalf of military retirees who were stripped of their military medical care benefits at age 65 and told to apply for Medicare. Although winning the case in the district court in 2001, the judgment against the U.S. was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2002. The U.S. Congress later redressed this situation by establishing the “TRICARE For Life” (TFL) program, which restored TRICARE military medical benefits for career military retirees over the age of 65, making the retirees eligible for both programs with Medicare as the primary payer and TRICARE as the secondary payer.

    [re=545203]CATX[/re]: No. Southern Republicans, even Florida ones, are Different. Moderate conservatism will get you destroyed in a Southern Republican primary.

    George Wallace became a hardcore seg only after losing an election in which he ran as the ’50s version of a moderate conservative. He vowed never to get “out-niggered” again, and he didn’t, until blacks started voting (at which time he became a non-racist populist again and got boatloads of black votes).

    I’m afraid our little Oompa Loompa (who is about as good a Republican governor as you can find) is gonna get steamrolled. Fortunately, I think Rubio is much more beatable in a general election, assuming there’s a decent Democratic candidate in Florida. And if not, he’ll be an entertaining mess as governor and provide entertainment to the rest of us. Teabagger governments = Jesse Ventura X Sarah Palin = Fail.

In fact, earlier this week, Chuck Norris came to Iowa to publically throw his support to Vander Platts, this week. And he also has the Bible Spice endorsement wrapped up.
    Hilarity ensues!
