BURNING MAN FOR BIGOTS  5:45 pm February 10, 2012

CPAC Gangsta Rap Number More or Less Satan’s Cue to Destroy Earth

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Here you go, dear readers, here is a little Friday warm up for whatever other terrible decisions you have planned for the weekend: watch this video of some Fox News dildo and his sidekick as they flop around in fruity wigs and rain down the musical equivalent of ten million anesthesia-free lobotomies on a delighted CPAC audience. Don’t miss the part near the end with the hysterical screams of “KNICKERS! I CAN SAY KNICKERS!!” as the black guy walks out.

IT WAS OFF THE HOOK:

Why take an innocent fanny pack hostage, tho?

Wait, so the moon Nazis win?

Biff February 10, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Moon Nazis have always won, Moon Nazis will always win.

NYNYNYjr February 10, 2012 at 8:14 pm

This is like Wagner to moon Nazis.

ph7 February 10, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Well done.

bagofmice February 10, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Burning man for bigots might be taken a little too literally with this crowd.

PolitiComm February 11, 2012 at 2:13 am

I'm seriously about to shit myself. Between moon Nazis in red jogging suits and Bright Fart, the news has no meaning anymore. My life is now surfing between Wonkette, Comedy Central and reruns of SNL.

HistoriCat February 12, 2012 at 9:43 am

Did we give up when the moon Nazis bombed Pearl Harbor? No!

johnnyzhivago February 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm

And to think my ancestors were running around naked in Scotland 500 years ago!

WhatTheHeck February 10, 2012 at 6:10 pm

I assume you mean they didn’t wear any knickers under their kilts.
That would be 1/2 nekid.

Loaded_Pants February 10, 2012 at 7:43 pm

Mmm…big hairy naked Scottish guys….I'm sorry, what?

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:05 pm

As if they've ever covered up those great hairy arses that we all know are utterly bare beneath those kilts.

Tundra Grifter February 10, 2012 at 8:24 pm

MB:

"What's worn under a kilt?"

"Nothing – everything's in perfect working order."

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 10:36 pm

I actually had to think about that, which must mean I am exhausted!

flamingpdog February 10, 2012 at 11:29 pm

I got that right away, which means I still have a few functioning brain cells.

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 12:22 am

My ancestors were running around naked in both Scotland and Africa 500 years ago, so I'm doubly embarrassed.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:40 am

The nicest part about being bi-anything? (You know, racial, sexual, whatever?)

You get to blame BOTH sides.

horsedreamer_1 February 12, 2012 at 2:09 am

This is not what Poynter means by "both sides do it".

Gunner Asch February 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm

The goggles! They do nothing!

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:05 pm

The gogglers, also. Too.

Fare la Volpe February 11, 2012 at 1:34 pm

And the googles.

Radiotherapy February 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm

The teabagger lady sure rocks that fanny pack.

BerkeleyBear February 10, 2012 at 6:16 pm

Fanny Granny just got greenlit for an 8 part reality series on Fox Business Channel (no one watches anyways, so who cares if they change formats?). CPAC is now the conservative answer to Sundance – double the douchebaggery, none of the artistry.

Biff February 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm

So is this a thing now, wearing your fanny pack on your front-butt?

Designer_Rants February 10, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Well, with a front-butt you've already got a shelf, might as well put something on it.

MissTaken February 10, 2012 at 7:04 pm

She's wearing her pack in the British style of fanny.

Biff February 10, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Mind=blown.

Loaded_Pants February 10, 2012 at 7:46 pm

That's where she keeps her mace in case she encounters a scary blah person.

NYNYNYjr February 10, 2012 at 8:19 pm

That's their biggest fan, she goes to all their shows. They affectionately call her "mom." As they have their whole lives.

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 12:24 am

Don't let Lizzie hear of this. All of this talk of fannies will set off her fanny-sense.

Monsieur_Grumpe February 11, 2012 at 8:17 am

The rappers are gettiing laid tonight!

Jerri February 11, 2012 at 8:36 am

See now I thought it was a pre-teen boy, delighted to finally experience this rap thing he's heard of.

PuckStopsHere February 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm

What the's name of this act? Poor, Sick Mothefucka's?

Frisbeedawg February 10, 2012 at 11:36 pm

Salt-n-Salt

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 12:25 am

Dumber & Dumberer.

crissiep February 11, 2012 at 10:21 am

ROTFLMAO!

bureaucrap February 10, 2012 at 5:50 pm

You mean Satan hasn't destroyed earth already? I thought that happened when Mittens said, "Corporations are People, my friend, and people aren't people."

IceCreamEmpress February 10, 2012 at 6:34 pm

Wave you hands in the air like you just don't care!

Sharkey February 10, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Throw your wigs in the air, and disinfect them like you just don't care….

Biel_ze_Bubba February 11, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Seriously, it may be time to start walking the earth again. You leave evil to amateurs, and it just degenerates, until you get unbearable shit like this.

Chet Kincaid February 10, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Don't you see? You're not making conservatism better, you're just making rock and roll worse!!

littlebigdaddy February 10, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Speaking as a person of whiteness, this is extremely embarrassing.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:08 pm

At this point, after the last, what, 12 years of these fucking old white Republicans just going publicly insane and hangin' it all out? I'm just feeling SO sorry for all my friends of no-pigmentation, man, because it is SRSLY embarrassing right now to be one of THOSE guyz.

The wimminz, thank deity, have been better overall (we're NOT naming the Three Witches in case one of them decides to hit the media tonight).

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I'm in a perpetual cringe.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Yabbut you're one of the wimminz, right? Because, not that wimminz overall have been saints or are in any way *better* than the menz, but they do seem somewhat more supportive of, you know, other oppressed classes.

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Make no mistake about it, teh wimminz are opressed, It is my belief that homophobia is an outgrowth of hatred of women. A gay man is worthy of contempt because he has (in their minds) feminine characteristics. A dyke, while ok if she knows her place and lets straight men watch her having sex with her girlfriend, is only marginally less worthy of contempt, because she has the audacity to be (in their minds) like a man. And a transwoman, a man who willingly “becomes” a woman, is the most contemptible of all.Oh and Z, I haz teh genderqueer, and my inner gay boy thinks ur hawt.

memzilla February 10, 2012 at 8:59 pm

As am I, and I have the same embarrassment.

I'm actually trying to deconstruct my embarrassment / revulsion. The cheap Adidas track suits, the poofty gray hair, the rap pretentiousness, the finger-jabbing… I guess just the entire frothy mix of whiteness looking for coolness, and its massive fail. It's like the man said about obscenity: I can't define it, but I know it when I see it.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:42 am

Well, there IS that whole fat, flabby, overweight, outa shape, and srsly ugly vibe going there, too.

anniegetyerfun February 12, 2012 at 12:04 pm

For me, it was that they were channeling Nickelback. Intentionally. They might have actually made Nickelback appear talented by comparison.

imissopus February 11, 2012 at 12:15 am

Also as a sentient human. Also.

snoopyfan2010 February 11, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Really? The whole human race is embarrassed.

nounverb911 February 10, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I made it six seconds into the video, do I win a prize?

JustPixelz February 10, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Six seconds! You are like a god to us. A blind, deaf god after clawing your own eyes and ears out, but a god none-the-less. Where would you like the virgin sacrifice delivered? (NOTE: The virgins were in the audience.)

Designer_Rants February 10, 2012 at 6:59 pm
Geminisunmars February 10, 2012 at 7:09 pm

O.M.G.

Designer_Rants February 10, 2012 at 7:44 pm

And someone at NPR is having a little too much fun with the stock photos.

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 8:43 pm

WTF?

Loaded_Pants February 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm

It may be just me but it seems like Mr. Elise is probably last person who should be advising people about how to date?
The last thing I want to do is get into arguments about politics all the time. That would mess up one important part of dating for me which is, of course, the sex.

Designer_Rants February 10, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I listened to this earlier, but I seem to remember advice about "it's okay if I think Al Gore's an idiot and she doesn't like Sarah Palin"… Yep, best just keep your mouth shut and your legs open in that situation, and then part ways until next year's CPUKE hotel hookup.

BTW, where are these liberals meeting these CPACers? I hope our Jim Newell hasn't been… compromised.

Fare la Volpe February 11, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I can't imagine what a conservative's dating tips are like.

"Smack her once to remind her of daddy."

MissNancyPriss February 11, 2012 at 3:49 pm

:(

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Isn't C'thulhu one of those blind, deaf Elder Gods? Or is that Shub-Niggurath? I get my Elder Gods all confused.

HistoriCat February 10, 2012 at 9:56 pm

C'thulhu is dead and dreaming, not blind and deaf.

ThundercatHo February 10, 2012 at 6:33 pm

I made it to 15 seconds. I think I should get a beautiful lounge suite.

Crank_Tango February 10, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Hey, me too! I can do a lot of things in 15 seconds…

finallyhappy February 10, 2012 at 7:43 pm

how about a lounge suit- with a full Cleveland?

biblioteq_tress February 10, 2012 at 8:42 pm

It's a freecreditscore.com commercial?

PsycWench February 10, 2012 at 9:50 pm

I made it to almost a minute. "10 million anesthesia-free lobotomies" is an understatement by a factor of 1000.

bagofmice February 10, 2012 at 10:53 pm

We passed face palm at 3 seconds. We blew out the head desk at :45, and have been rocking the ball-peen ever since.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 1:02 am

You poor little thing. I wish I coulda warned you.

Designer_Rants February 11, 2012 at 6:05 am

If you can't stand the lobotomy, stay out of the CPAC.

Biel_ze_Bubba February 11, 2012 at 2:54 pm

30 seconds was my limit. It sounded like they were anally-raping Nirvana, more so than Hip-Hop or Rap.

Dashboard_Jesus February 11, 2012 at 12:58 am

damn I feel pretty good, made it a whole 10 seconds before shutting it down, the noise/ stupidity was deafening

CapnFatback February 10, 2012 at 5:52 pm

IT WAS OFF THE HOOK

They certainly should have been on the hook–the Sandman's hook.

Barrelhse February 10, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Decided to call my Baby on the telephone
All I got was a busy tone

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 7:53 pm

That's good. I'd settle for Cenobites, also.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:10 pm

A shepherd's crook.

Mahousu February 10, 2012 at 5:52 pm

For once, I was actually hoping to be rickrolled.

HarryButtle February 10, 2012 at 5:54 pm

No. I will not clicky the linky. You tricked me into watching conservative rappers once before and my groove thing is STILL out of whack.

FREEBIRD!!!1!!! also.

Designer_Rants February 10, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I can't wait for your upcoming blockbuster "How Buttle Got His Groove Back".

Barrelhse February 10, 2012 at 7:47 pm

I wanna hear Caravan with a drum solo.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Except he made it sound like "drum soler." I don't know why that cracks me up. (takes another pill)

smokefilledroommate February 10, 2012 at 5:55 pm

That mofo rocks a powdered wig and a jogging suit like I've never seen!

littlebigdaddy February 10, 2012 at 6:08 pm

He forgot the alarm clock, though.

smokefilledroommate February 10, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Lame-a-LAAAAME!!

Boojum_Reborn February 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Gnu Lehvuls Of Stoopid, performing Whyte Corporations.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:12 pm

I read "Guh Lehvuls Of Stoopid," and want to congratulate you on having donated a new word to the vocabulary of La Casa de Los Gatos.

meatlofer February 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

What the fuck? Couldn't those sway-backed repubatards just book Murph& The Magictones for some entertainment.Stay away from the in-shit boys! Fucking pricks!

HarryButtle February 10, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Good Ol' Blues Brothers Boys libel!

poncho_pilot February 11, 2012 at 5:04 pm

look at you in those candy-ass monkey suits.

littlebigdaddy February 10, 2012 at 5:56 pm

You know the room was more relaxed after the black guy walked out.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:13 pm

Shit, you know all those mothafuckin' white-assed folks all looked around and said, "Phew! N*****'s gone, we can get back to havin FUN now!"

PuckStopsHere February 11, 2012 at 1:02 am

I was hoping he was leaving to go and get a cap to bust in they ass.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 1:31 am

I fucking wish, dood. I would pay good money to see that.

MissNancyPriss February 11, 2012 at 3:49 pm

we would have heard that on the news by now, right? I mean there isn't a small chance….

horsedreamer_1 February 12, 2012 at 2:11 am

They'll always have Harold Ford, Jr.

mjrdegan February 12, 2012 at 2:12 pm

That exit was planned.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Hieronymus Bosch painted a room in Hell that looked exactly like this.

Thankfully, there was no sound.

HarryButtle February 10, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Thank you. I will now forever see Republitard gatherings as Bosch paintings.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Welcome to the Club.

Sorry.

Chichikovovich February 10, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Oh, yes. Thanks – I knew I remembered this scene from somewhere. It's the first version of Garden of Earthly Delights that Bosch discarded because it made hell seem too horrific.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Yes, that's correct! Bosch also tried to paint the same scene in The Seven Deadly Sins and the Four Last Things but the reaction from most of the individuals in the Brotherhood of Our Lady was so negative that he immediately painted it out. Only a few sketches remain, fortunately.

SudsMcKenzie February 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

CPAC Shakur.

Biff February 10, 2012 at 6:47 pm

That's the one, right there.

Barrelhse February 10, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Six-pac, fer shur!

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 8:48 pm

Annnnd we have a winner, ladies and gents!

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 12:40 am

Yes, but will they end up like their namesake?

CapnFatback February 11, 2012 at 1:00 am

Worst Coast represent!

anniegetyerfun February 12, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Brilliant. Just fucking brilliant.

Knickerback, also.

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

watch this video of some Fox News dildo and his sidekick

I thought they cancelled Hannity and Colmes.

smokefilledroommate February 10, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Two Craigslist entries right there.

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 10, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Who knew it was possible to make you miss Vanilla Ice.

Jukesgrrl February 10, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Word to your mother.

bagofmice February 10, 2012 at 11:03 pm

At least vanilla could hang with suge. By the ankles, admittedly, but these guys wouldn't be worth the elevator ride.

Monsieur_Grumpe February 10, 2012 at 5:59 pm

As Jed Clampett would say”pitiful”.

Nostrildamus February 10, 2012 at 11:45 pm

Granny would say "fetch my shotgun!"

edgydrifter February 10, 2012 at 6:00 pm

It's really weird how some people aren't at all ashamed of things that are absolutely shameful. This video is like a Truck Nutz interpretive dance routine.

ProgressiveInga February 10, 2012 at 6:01 pm

☹ Srsly, Kirsten? WTF did we ever do to you? That is just messed up. You kinda suck right now. Oh, man, that was just wrong. ☹

smokefilledroommate February 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm

shhh– the alt-text is rather good. kbj! kbj!

LesBontemps February 10, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Worst. Porno. Evar.

Chillwillard February 10, 2012 at 6:04 pm

Just watched it. Shall I facepalm myself to death now or later?

bagofmice February 10, 2012 at 11:04 pm

This is ether and ball-peen territory.

CapnFatback February 10, 2012 at 6:04 pm

CPACrap.

TeaNuts February 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Just when you think they could not possibly stuff more clowns in that car. I could only watch in opened mouth amazement.

soeoho February 10, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Aww, you bust my gut.

edgydrifter February 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm

They are CPACistan's greatest cultural treasure.

Tilley February 10, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Total thumbs-up just for "CPAC-istan."

Biel_ze_Bubba February 11, 2012 at 3:00 pm

And again for "greatest cultural treasure".
That just gets funnier anf funnier, every time I read it.

fitley February 10, 2012 at 6:05 pm

I'm surprised that Patrick McHenry was the only one who got up to dance.
I think we now know why they always steal Democrat's music, like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Jackson Brown.

Barrelhse February 10, 2012 at 7:55 pm

They should grab themselves some Barry McGuire- "Eve of Destruction" would be fitting for the GOP right now..

sharethegrief February 10, 2012 at 6:08 pm

This almost makes me believe in the death penalty.

DerrickWildcat February 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm

That whole CPAC thing looks like one big White Power Cuddle Party.

MissTaken February 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Is it too late to submit this for Grammy consideration?

Biff February 10, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Grammy was all up in that shit in the back of the room.

Barrelhse February 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I doubt if the little old ladies would like it, either.

fartknocker February 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Richard Simmons has really gone to hell in a hand basket.

SayItWithWookies February 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Which two Golden Girls were those?

Lionel[redacted]Esq February 10, 2012 at 7:26 pm

The dead ones?

Tundra Grifter February 10, 2012 at 8:29 pm

SIwW:

Those are Golden Shower Girls.

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 12:42 am

Betty White got more soul in her blue hair than that entire damned room has had in their entire lives.

tihond February 10, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Apparently, DC Talk and Lee Greenwood were too busy for CPAC.

LesBontemps February 10, 2012 at 6:10 pm

How the hell did that act not totally empty the room? Is this some sort of SERE desensitization training? Are those people super-glued to their chairs? What has become of artistic sensibilities? As a sign of the prospects for culture in general, this is just fucking depressing.

BerkeleyBear February 10, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Say what you will about white people, but we are very good about listening politely to crap that makes our ears bleed. These people have decades of going to their kids/friends' kids/relatives' kids crappy recitals, school plays and Christmas pageants, sitting through it and applauding politely.

Geminisunmars February 10, 2012 at 7:14 pm

So there is something we have in common with the conservatives. That might be the place to start coming together.

Biel_ze_Bubba February 11, 2012 at 3:05 pm

The bald guy in the audience, at least, looked like he might be considering getting off the crazy train at the next stop.

Chichikovovich February 10, 2012 at 6:12 pm

I knew it! Negropolis went down there to do the Sasha Baron Cohen thing on those bozos. [Original suggestion from Chet]. But he hadn't realized what pathetic losers they would be and he couldn't take it. Understandable – who could possibly anticipate something as grotesque as that!

Just as well that he walked out. The combined genius of Cohen, Lenny Bruce and Richard Prior couldn't make those zeros look any dumber than they've already made themselves.

ifthethunderdontgetya February 10, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I was sure that Chet had your best interests at heart.

I am SHOCKED.

soeoho February 10, 2012 at 6:13 pm

I miss the GONG Show.

Angry_Marmot February 10, 2012 at 11:00 pm

I miss the Popsicle Twins.

WhatTheHeck February 10, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Old timeys tryin to get jiggy wid it.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:16 pm

I just wish one of them had thrown their back out.

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 8:52 pm

I think they did. Fortunately, a nice boy from Craigslist is coming over to give them a massage.

Sassomatic February 10, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Huh. Insane Clown Posse is a lot better than I thought they were.

ManchuCandidate February 10, 2012 at 6:14 pm

Not so fly for white guys.

Mojopo February 10, 2012 at 6:15 pm

How much windowpane will it take to make me forget all of this?

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:16 pm

I don't think there *is* that much. Unless you're talking "for the next two days."

NYNYNYjr February 10, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Depends what floor you're starting from.

eatingraoul February 12, 2012 at 6:46 pm

I'd chase it with some ludes.

Generation[redacted] February 10, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I love how they're showing that episode of the Office on the screen while they dance.

Scranton! (what?)
The electric city!
I said Scranton! (what?)
The electric city!

MissTaken February 10, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Every year CPAC reminds me why I'm ashamed to be white.

edgydrifter February 10, 2012 at 6:23 pm

You shouldn't be ashamed to be white.
You should be ashamed that they are white.

Mojopo February 10, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Reminds me why I'm proud to be geh.

MissTaken February 10, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I'm a straight and a white, gawd help me. But at least I got a vagina to keep me sane.

Mojopo February 10, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I have one of those, too. Win-win except for, about, 5 days a month.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 8:17 pm

It has been my experience that vaginas go a long way towards damping down teh crayZ. So to speak.

starfanglednut February 10, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Don't worry. You're a wimmin. That makes you just as worthless as a ghey or blah.

BigDumbRedDog February 10, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Straight and white is soooo uncool. I was a geh before it was cool to be geh.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 1:36 am

Oh gawd, another Certified Baby Dyke, just like my sister! She knew before she hit FIVE.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I'm ashamed that they're Hominids.

flamingpdog February 10, 2012 at 7:07 pm

I prefer to believe they're not. It's known as convergent evolution in the business.

Chet Kincaid February 10, 2012 at 7:19 pm

But if you fuck one of 'em and have any viable offspring, your theory is blown!

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I was really hoping to not Projectile Vomit tonight. Thanks a lot.

I'd love to believe that, also, but I'm just not that lucky.

It's become painfully clear to me that they are, in fact Hominids, with the advent of the Mitochondiale Eve theory and the Multiregional origins hypotheses.
I just have to come to terms with the likelihood that they're Relatives.
I do take comfort in that they're probably an offshoot of the Main tree and an evolutionary dead end.
Not nearly fast enough for me, though.
I wonder if sapiens felt the same way about Neanderthal?

Cool graphic, thanks! I'm saving it.

Dudleydidwrong February 10, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Possum Libel! Are you saying that those THINGS in that video are marsupials? What self-respecting offspring would ever feel safe in their pouches? I think that the pouches are for storing shit for throwing. Or for quick snacks.

BigDumbRedDog February 10, 2012 at 9:50 pm

I'm ashamed that they're mammals.

Oh, she is gorgeous. She and Meryl Streep.

Chichikovovich February 11, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Streep doesn't do it for me. Great actress, I love to watch her inhabit a role, but not "dream of wild nights of passion" material.

Dame Helen, on the other hand, I fell in love with as a little shaver when I saw her in O Lucky Man!, and she's just gotten better with age. (As have I, now that I think of it.)

anniegetyerfun February 12, 2012 at 12:14 pm

My pal Eddie Manion from the Asbury Jukes will be playing sax, along with Clarence's nephew Jake Clemons, on the upcoming Wrecking Ball tour. Eddie's on the CD, did the Seeger Sessions sax work, played at the Super Bowl with E St., etc., so it's a long time coming that he's officially getting a promotion. Ed often plays a baritone sax so that will give Wrecking Ball a different sound. But it takes two, or more, to fill The Big Man's shoes. I've got my ticket for the LA show; I'm really excited for some political music from a pissed-off Boss.

The chorus is tight and has a scream from the soul feel. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. At first it comes of hokey..but then the solid chorus kicks in and after that the second vocalists blows it away in a rat ah tat format with breaks and speed ups in all the right places.

chascates February 10, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Oh, for fuck's sake (from HuffPo):
Republicans in the U.S. Senate want the long-term unemployed to volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive unemployment insurance.
A bill introduced Thursday by Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) would also require claimants drawing benefits six months or longer to search for work at least 20 hours a week.

BlueStateLibel February 10, 2012 at 9:06 pm

Then, when they find out you were unavailable for work 20 hours a week, they deny your claim? Fucking brilliant, I tellz ya!

MilwaukeeKent February 11, 2012 at 2:23 am

How about paying them directly for that work, instead of putting them one step forward and two steps back? Probably to beat self-suffiency into them and the beatings will continue until morale improves. Plus we tried that in the '30s and it worked, can't have that. This is their damned jobs program, reinstitute child labor, extend the work span to 70, elminate lunch hours, cut taxes for the rich to 25%, destroy unions and basically flatten the world-wide wage structure to about a dollar an hour, more or less. Shits.

Limeylizzie February 10, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Totallly, totally OT but this is why unions are wonderful, this man , a friend and colleague of MrLimeylizzie had ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease and the Teamsters et al painted his house for his wife, because he couldn't and he'd made a promise.

chascates February 10, 2012 at 9:12 pm

The ONLY reason people work a 40-hour week, can have vacations or holidays, get paid for overtime, and aren't subject to firing for frivolous reasons is because of the fights unions have made over the years. The federal government has sent in soldiers to shoot them, state and local police have killed and brutalized them, and businesses have hired private goons to terrorize and torture them but the unions persevered.

Unions are the arteries of democracy. Sorry to year of the death of your friend. And those vicious, corrupt Teamsters did something nice for him, just because they could.

miked420 February 10, 2012 at 8:57 pm

without even looking into the background on these two vomit bags, I bet that they do the same for evangelical christian groups. There's always a few black people at CPAC, and these idiots had to think about that. So what'd they think that the 1-5 black people in attendance would actually have a laugh at clever use of the word ''knickers"? I can imagine what these geniuses thought the reaction would be "Oh hahaha, the boys said 'knickers', hahah, not the other word symbolizing, years of oppression, inequality and dehumanization. How funny! The white man sure knows how to have a laugh!"

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 11:00 pm

I don't know about any other non-white folks, but whenever I'm *around* people like these? My shoulder blades start twitching, like I'm expecting a knife between them at any minute. I do not know how that man could even have joined that fucking group.

flamingpdog February 11, 2012 at 12:25 am

In defense of the man of the blah persuasion, he could have been the audio-visual nerd there to make sure the video machine was running properly.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:38 am

That's most likely it. I just can't imagine how he could have sat through such BAD attempts at music, never mind the racistness.

MilwaukeeKent February 10, 2012 at 9:04 pm

I'm thinking "Knickers! I can say knickers!" sort of sums up the entire CPAC experience.

Next time, kids, maybe put the lyrics in the video to avoid this sort of reaction. You may have just cost the GOP a percentage point of the black vote when the one gentleman walked out. Just his vote alone. Although the idea of that roomful of pasties rapping along or yelling "Knickers!" as he left the room…well, the mind reels, clutches its chest, takes a prat fall and acts out a long, hammy death scene.

CapnFatback February 10, 2012 at 11:11 pm

Actually, the timing was simply serendipity. The guy leaving the room appears to be an employee of the hotel, probably just getting done verifying that the Hardbore Rappers could handle the equipment. The "knickers" line is a lame joke in the "song."

MilwaukeeKent February 10, 2012 at 11:28 pm

I wondered about that too, or maybe a journalist or even a Democratic operative getting sound and video bites. I thnk he checked his cell phone on the way out. Maybe he got a text and had to leave. Weird timing any way you view it.

Wait a minute, isn't the Tea Party involved in hosting CPAC? And is the Tea Party not a Koch Brothers-funded enterprise? Because if this little extravaganza is the best the Koch Brothers can do, maybe they are less dangerous than previously thought, is what I'm saying.

Local_Mojo February 10, 2012 at 9:16 pm

This is, uh, kind of embarrassing — for the species.

trubador1 February 10, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Okay, I've seen it all now. This world has no more wonders. I'm ready to take my journey, Lord.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 9:27 pm

In the "Snowballs in Hell" category of news, just now Rachel Maddow said that Cal Thomas called her personally today to apologize for yesterday's appalling "retroactive abortion" remark . Apparently he was a gentleman and genuinely sorry.

Perhaps there's just a little hope out there, after all. Perhaps.

chascates February 10, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Isn't Cal Thomas about 90 years old? How could he know who Rachel Maddow is? He's been doing conservative blather since John McCain was in diapers!

Dudleydidwrong February 10, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I'm sorry. One swallow doesn't make a professional call girl*. And one Cal Thomas apology for a wrenchingly insulting comment doesn't call for any hope. He's still a zit on the ass of progress.

*But it does make a nice lover.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 11:15 pm

"Nice People Swallow." = bumper sticker on the helmet of a biker, seen on Rt. 301 on the way to Bike Week at Ocean City, MD.

True.

Jukesgrrl February 11, 2012 at 7:35 pm

I saw a biker in a Pittsburgh diner who had printed on the BACK of his T-shirt, "The bitch fell off."

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Yeah, I call bullshit. It's because Twitter has been going crazy from the minute he made that fucking remark. These pricks NEVER apologize unless they feel the pinch in their pocket.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 11:19 pm

I do have the weakness of "thinking the best of people's motivations" as my default state. I'm working on it.
I did slag Cal Thomas pretty unmercifully, in an earlier post. I suppose I'll leave that up.

ShaveTheWhales February 10, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Well, it's nice that he apologized to her personally, but IMO, a public insult requires an at-least-equally-public apology, or it's game.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 11:37 pm

Seems to be the general consensus around here, also. That, and the fact that these people have proven themselves very untrustworthy time and again.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 11:43 pm

(Hugs the CRE) It's OK. I have a pretty bad case of Pollyanna_Syndrome myself.

I just think this "insult, then offer an apology" business started during Reagan's time, and it still really really pisses me off. That old asshole would say the most incredibly racist, sexist things and then laugh it off as a joke and pretend to apologize to those oversensitive Browns, Blacks, and Females who "took it wrong."

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 11:49 pm

Why, thanks!

If Reagan didn't start that ("I'm sorry if you were offended by my remark..") he & his administration sure crafted it into an rt form.
Yet another reason to hate them.

Biff February 10, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Dudleydidwrong February 10, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Sorry for our loss. She lived a long time and contributed to the betterment of our world via her teaching. I've known too many "quads" who never came close to matching her longevity. May science bring us to the day when such accidents can be healed rather than endured. No snark, I know…

Biff February 10, 2012 at 11:34 pm

When I was a young, I drove her around in a Para-Van for a while. Inspirational lady. I also played a bit part in "The Other Side of the Mountain", but they cut me out because my sunglasses weren't "period" enough. Mammoth was a fun place to be young and athletic, for sure!

Jukesgrrl February 10, 2012 at 10:56 pm

Well, I guess they'll never be honored with respect for the Constitution and Bill of Rights as they were actually written, so perhaps this is the best those lame-brains can do.

Fukui_sanYesOta February 11, 2012 at 1:08 am

Oh, not to mention the immense body of letters, original research and so on … and that's just Jefferson. A man so ahead of his time that he posited that finding shells on top of mountains might point to "geological processes not yet understood by science"

Baggers would fucking hate Jefferson were he alive today.

MilwaukeeKent February 11, 2012 at 1:39 am

And all that scholarship you mention? It would all be so much la-de-da lefty moonbat feel-good let's-all-sing-Kumbayah BS to them. They would have been Tories in the day. That was the conservative position. The founding fathers were radicals, more or less in pace with the French Revolution.

Maine Coons are the coolest fucking cats in the world. Nothing fazes them. Or everything, if they're gingers. But yeah, girl cats tend to be, what's the word, "high-strung." I'm not sure what that's about, but think it has to do with the fact that most female felines are pretty good mothers, and although their territory is smaller than the males', they're much more aggressive in terms of defending territory. Neutered males are generally pretty easygoing, and even unneutered males aren't as hissy as the females about little stuff. Weird.

fuflans February 11, 2012 at 11:17 am

right? we usually have 3 or 4 in the house but never more than one girl. our current, kerfuffle, is half tabby / half tortoiseshell and she has serious tortitude.

and she does NOT like white rap.

(as he is a shelter cat, we only speculate little cat Z is a maine coon. but he has ALL the characteristics. and he is pure black so nothing fazes him. he follows the orkin man around every month.).

The fact someone did not punch that belligerent asshole right in the mouth after he screamed and carried on like a lunatic pretty much invalidates all the nonsense he spews about them.

"This is having someone pay for it, pay for something that shouldn't even be in an insurance plan anyway because it is not, really an insurable item. This is something that is affordable, available. You don't need insurance for these types of relatively small expenditures." WTF is with this demented man?!

ThundercatHo February 11, 2012 at 10:15 am

The fact that anyone actually cares about what this sphincter has to say just shows how decayed the GOP has gotten.

Chichikovovich February 11, 2012 at 10:34 am

I feel the same way about the tax deduction for donations to the church. A lot of poor and lower middle class people can only afford to drop 20 bucks a week or even less to the collection plate. End of the year, 1100 bucks tops. You don't need a tax deduction for these types of relatively small expenditures.

glamourdammerung February 11, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I feel the same way about Catholic Church tax exemptions. After all, if they have such serious concerns about having to dominate our secular policies, they can pay their taxes.

Hooboy, that was some funny joke there, where they had the black guy walk out and the guy says "Knickers!

I'm noticing my black friends are way more upset about this than my white friends.

If someone posts on facebook "Whitney Houston died," then someone hits "Like", doesn't that mean they like that fact that she's dead?
Because that's cold.

LetUsBray February 11, 2012 at 9:24 pm

I'm whiter than mayonnaise on wonder bread. I'm also 46 years old. And when I read about someone dying at age 48, never mind why, well, I don't like that at all.

Biff February 11, 2012 at 9:28 pm

I always loved her voice, but I wish she'd used her talent on R&B instead of pop. Fuckin' drugs, man…

Most of the time it just sounds like teenage boys wacking each other off to the soundtrack of 1776: Or Rick "a frothy mix" Santorums childhood.

Well, Cons have fucked up pretty much everything else….why not Rap?

Nopantsmcgee February 12, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Why can't they just stick to polkas?

PhilippePetain February 10, 2012 at 7:52 pm

No matter the age of the winger – they could be twenty – they sound like this when they imitate rap. "du du-da DUH du-da DUH"…it's like they heard the Sugar Hill Gang ONCE upon induction into their little clique and have handed down their imitation of those noises as secrets to every successive generation.

Yes. Yes it is. Carbon is as Carbon does.

bagofmice February 10, 2012 at 10:57 pm

You can put that in your pipe and smoke it.

MittBorg February 10, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Oh, absolutely. Wasn't it Lenin who said that women are a natural revolutionary class? Maybe it was Mao. I forget.

Hey, I think ur inner gayboi is pretty fucking hot, too.

snoopyfan2010 February 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Not necessarily true. I have seen the non pigmented women throw men and women of darker skin color under the bus for a piece of the pie. And don't forget who benefits the most from the twisted and unnatural standard of beauty that is force on society. It is the one area they can earn more than their male counter parts. But yeah it is a convenient card to play when not everything goes their way.

They're a pretty good outfit to work for. A relative of mine was a manager for them at Vail Colorado, they treated him very well until he threw it away.

flamingpdog February 10, 2012 at 11:34 pm

Get a room!

A tastefully appointed room, of course.

C_R_Eature February 10, 2012 at 11:58 pm

That would be Birds, today. Good try, though.

And now I'm very thankful they're not. Very.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:46 am

They Might Be Giants.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:39 am

Share.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:42 am

And quiet. You forgot quiet.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 12:48 am

Remember when he made his "little joke" about starting a nuclear war with Russia? Gad, what a hateful asshole!

Fukui_sanYesOta February 11, 2012 at 12:54 am

Calm down chaps! I was simply quoting the most eloquent youtube comment.

Most of the comments were praising the knickers/n-word homophony.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 1:04 am

Whew! Thank deities you're OK.

Just don't tell them it's homophony, they'll mass-suicide … oh, wait, on second thought …

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 1:39 am

Hug, you loon.

BearNoLike February 11, 2012 at 1:45 am

I'll take ear-rape for $100, Alex.

Negropolis February 11, 2012 at 1:49 am

Truly, an abomination before the lord.

I smell burnt toast…

MilwaukeeKent February 11, 2012 at 2:05 am

These two kids? I hear their mother's a thespian.

MittBorg February 11, 2012 at 2:12 am

So *that's* where they got their love of … flamboyance, and all things theatrical!

ShaveTheWhales February 11, 2012 at 3:28 am

TMBG libel!!!!

Both the band and the movie.

Biff February 11, 2012 at 11:02 am

We must continue to remember that asshole, because what those other assholes remember about him is a complete fabrication.

Fare la Volpe February 11, 2012 at 1:22 pm

According to my mother, I became obsessed with shoes when I was eighteen months. A year later I told my father how unfair it was that boys could only wear pants, but girls could wear pants and dresses.

INTERPRET AS YOU WILL.

starfanglednut February 11, 2012 at 4:59 pm

I think I see your point, but I'm not sure I agree. Yes, many white women discriminate against people of color. But that does not negate the fact that women, of all shades, are globally at a significant disadvantage to men. Some, but not all of many statistics supporting my contention can be seen here:http://www.nswrapecrisis.com.au/Resources/Noticeboard/Global-Statistics.pdfAnd yes, women can at times make money by adhering to standards of 'beauty”, but more often, a woman can starve herself, remove her pubic hair with hot wax, jam herself into uncomfortable shoes and skirts that make her ass wiggle in a way that appeals to straight men, claw her way up the corporate ladder, and still not receive genuine respect or equal pay from her male coworkers or society at large.And surely, if you spend time on wonkette, you are aware of the daily onslaught on womens' reproductive and healthcare rights. I'm not saying that other forms of discrimination are any less important, but discrimination against women is severe, and very real.And what do you mean by “But yeah it is a convenient card to play when not everything goes their way. “?

snoopyfan2010 February 11, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Star….I see your point too and you are right. Women of all races bear the burden of discrimination more than men. What I mean to point out is that some women have used the racial bias in their favor to get ahead. The last comment is just an extension of that thought. Just like High School Musical….we're all in this together…..but some forget that until it hits them in the buttocks.Sent from my iPad

No that's Bruce Kapler. But most of the Jukes and the CBS Orchestra work together on various projects in New York all the time. Ed used to sit in on Conan O'Brien's show when it was in NYC and they needed an extra sax for some reason or another (like when Springsteen showed up). New Jersey has a rich history of providing great horn players to NYC.

starfanglednut February 11, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I agree, Snoop, we are all in this together. Sometimes things don't translate well over the internet, we can't see each other's facial expressions or hear each other's tone of voice, so I apologize if I misunderstood.

snoopyfan2010 February 11, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Hey, no worries. I only read Wonkette to help me develop my sense of humor. My sense of irony and self pity are near perfection, however.Sent from my iPad

Speaking of burnt toast, I had this really strange metallic taste in my mouth all of this afternoon that is has just now subsided. That can't be good, can it? lol

anniegetyerfun February 12, 2012 at 12:12 pm

It's sweet that you gave them a head's up. Better to get those PFLAG memberships earlier, and lock in a lower rate.

Biff February 12, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Ah, Bruce Kapler–thanks. Somehow I get him, Bruce Johnstone and Eddie confused at times. Need more like them.
