Who would vote against that mullet? Well, here is some fine post-Election Day news for you! Seems another Democrat besides President I Guess It Rains Down In Africa was on the primary ballot in West Virginny, and, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, 40 percent of the Democrats there voted for him! So who is Keith Judd? Well, he is currently serving 17 years for extortion, and about him nothing else is known. Those election results seem … odd somehow? Almost as if the mountain-mama “Democrats” roundabouts might have some other sort of reason not to vote for their party’s standard bearer! What could it be?

It is probably because President Obama spiked the football too much on killing Bin Laden, we bet. Nope. No other possible reason.

    If you have to say, "I ain't prejudiced" when you speak of not wanting to vote for a black person, you probably are.

    • Arken

      She ain't prejudiced or nothing, she just hates black people.

      • Barb

        Have you ever noticed that most bigots have one black person that they LOVE and their hateful rules don't apply to? For my dad, it was Red Foxx.

        My dad would beat me with a belt until I was breathless when he would find Michael Jackson records in my room. Funny story, when my dad died, Nancy called me and told me that I could start listening to Michael Jackson music again. Michael Jackson and my dad died on the same day, within an hour of each other.

    Keith Judd can probably blow Dixie on the jug, after removing his one front tooth.

    Plus, he's white, obvs.

    • chicken_thief

      "blow Dixie on the jug"?!

      That actually sounds like it might be fun, though I'm not familiar with the phrase. Can you give me a little hint what all it entails? Unless Dixie is your dog or pet goat, I might try it once….

      • Biff

        But Dixie is usually a girl's name.

        • I wish I was in Dixie, away down south in Dixie …

          Hmm … you might have something there, Biffster.

  • There are Democrats in WV?

    • BerkeleyBear

      Well, pre 1972 Southern Fried Democrats (i.e. racist nut jobs). Never forget, WV stayed with the union because it didn't have any black people, not because they wanted to free those nasty darkies.

    • I remember Ken Rudin on Talk Of The Nation's "Politics Wednesday" saying how WV Dems exist, but they're very different from all other Democrats… or something like that.

      • You know, just like we're always saying, "Well, he's a Northeastern Republican, not quite like the Republicans down south …."

    • HistoriCat

  • SexySmurf

    Let's clear this up once and for all. Is the lyric "I guess it rains down in Africa," "I passed the rains down in Africa" or "I blessed the rains down in Africa"? I always thought it was the latter, but none of them actually make lyrical sense.

    • SorosBot

      It's "I bless the rains", and no it doesn't seem to make much sense, and damn you for sticking that song in my head.

    • It's "I bless the rains down in Africa"

      • BerkeleyBear

        I always thought it was "I brought the rains down in Africa" which could be "I brought the reigns down in Africa" which would be a whole different song.

        • SorosBot

          That would make sense if it was sung by Storm, who was worshiped as a goddess by those Africans who were apparently still all primitive spear-carrying tribesmen as recently as the 1970s before she joined the X-Men.

          • prommie

            Its kinda in the same vein as when Alanis Morrisette sang "thank you India." An entire continent has meaning only insofar as it had some impact on the singer's life. Not at all self-centered, is it? Personally, I thank God for 9-11, because I got the day off.

          • Well, now, let's be fair: we can only experience that which we ourselves experience. She thanked an entire continent for improving her life. That's the extent of the impact on her, yea, but she's the one writing the song.

            Now, if she had said the sum total of the existence of those darkies was to make her life better, well, Gunga Din would have something to say to her.

          • SorosBot

            Alanis didn't thank an entire continent for improving her life; India's just one country, albeit a very big one. Toto did thank a whole continent though.

          • Look, it's a subcontinent, but it's sex life doesn't matter to me, aight?

          • Over one billion "Gunga Dins" would have something to say to her.

          • Biff

            I got the day off for reagan's funeral, top that!

          • Amazing what those Africans will do, innit?

            It took white people YEARS to figure out that what the locals were calling them was NOT a term of endearment. Damn, they got themselves one huge ego.

          • Wait….Bwana is not a term of respect?

            Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, wait till I get my hands on Mbeke!!!!!!

          • Oh, stop, you little horror! (hugs the actor) I forget which African language it is, but you know very well Bwana means "Lord," which is why you hear it in so many African hymns.

        • DaRooster

          Like British?

        • Boojum

          Or "I brought the reins down on Africa", which is a little BDSM.

    • I think it's, "I lost my brains down in Africa."

      • That's after you hear the song enough times.

        • Biff

          ie: more than once.

      • I like that best of all. (Hugs the Derrick)

        • Hey! I'm putting up some new dumb bird pictures right now!

          • I'm'a hurry right over!

            Still looking at camera specs. I have some old SLR lenses left over, Canon and Nikon, and the pretty little lady (she's VERY pretty and VERY little) at the photo shop tells me I can use them with the nifty new digital body, which also does video. Going camera-(window)-shopping again on Sunday.

          • I know Nikon made their digicams with essentially the same mounts as their film cams so you can use legacy lenses, except no autofocus and the thru the lens metering is a little suspect, but I guess I should have known Canon would too.

          • what you said.

          • You might need an adapter and AF may be disabled. So ask.

          • Thank you.

            Those pileateds are SO STUNNING, they almost look fake! Love all the new birds!

          • Yeah, They're super cool and they are big…about the size of a crow!

          • Bird story for you: My sister feeds the birds at her house, every morning before leaving for work. There's rosellas, a family of crows, those beautiful-voiced honey-eaters, and several small finches and sparrows and the like. A hawk came over one day, and I was worried that it would start treating the bird feeder as its own feeder, but the father crow chased the hawk away! I didn't know they did that!

            Anyway. I spent a lot of time studying the birds, thanks to you!

      • SorosBot

        But hey, their soundtrack to the Lynch version of Dune was cool at least.

        • I still desperately need to see that movie; I feel particularly bad, because a relative of mine played the Padisah Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV (though I hear the miniseries is pretty great too!).

          • The, um, movie…how do I put this? Sucked.

            You're related to Jose Ferrer?

          • Grandfather's cousin. It's a pretty enormous family, though, so this really just starts and ends as a fun conversation topic.

            One would think that being related to George Clooney, albeit indirectly, would make for a better pickup line, but…

          • SorosBot

            I still like the Lynch movie, though I know a lot of people hate it; maybe it comes from seeing it when I was a kid. But the Sci-Fi miniseries was awful, even though with all the extra runtime they were much more true to the book; most of the acting was awful and the production values were cheap and horrible in the typical Sci-Fi Channel way; in particular the depiction of the Fremen communities, which all looked super-clean, was just bad.

          • Huh; my friends in college were pretty agog over the the miniseries, though admittedly I had scarecely had enough familiarity with Dune to pay much attention to the series, at the time.

            For a sci fi nerd, I'm awfully deprived.

          • If it's any consolation, I thought the miniseries sucked too.

            Just not as bad as the vaginal/phallic movie

            I'm thinking if they had just left the inner voice dialogue out, the movie would have been 100% better, which is still not saying much

      • MissTaken

        Dorothy's dog wrote a song about Rosanna Arquette? How cool!

    During the Democratic Primary in 2008, I don't think Obama won a single county in Appalachia. And it wasn't because they liked the idea of a woman President, either. I think their motto was stolen from Pink Floyd: We Don't Need No Education.

          Ashes are overrated. My Dad's ashes, who I loved, sit on a shelf in my bedroom, bearing witness to my life. His ashes have seen me doing some weird shit with my wife, and seen my little shits treat me in the same shitty way I once treated him. But the ashes are him; its just a creepy glass jar of bone chunks and soot. He was unspoken atheist, so he's probably be disappointed if I gave his biological remnants some metaphysical importance.

    Reality has far less sway with the ignorant than the latest preposterous email that their church friends send them. It gets worse at the level of meth-addicts. Mostly, they're white trash.
