Lindsey Graham Would Like To Feed On White Male Anger

simmering rage behind a soft jawAfter a convention in which literally every minority in the Republican Party gets to take the stage and chant about the things that “they” (read: the white people watching them) built, it’s time to reflect on how awesome it’s going to be when America is majority-minority and the GOP is ascendant. After all, Chuck Todd says that Democrats are super totes jeals over all the diversity at the GOP convention!

Or not, because Lindsey Graham had to go open his stupid turdface mouth.

“The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

Whaaaa?

I watched your convention, Mister Lindsey O., and I saw like a half dozen people who said things in Spanish. Are you telling me that was a lie??

Also, how does the GOP generate more angry white guys? I am going to be really annoyed if my sports radio is taken over by calm Negroes and Hispanics talking about soccer. Soccer is so boring! Brainstorm, Wonketeers! If I no longer have to encounter the guy who gets mad because I parked too close to his late model Mustang, I don’t know what I’ll do with myself.

    “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”
    This should be the new Viagra* ad.

    "Viagra, the little blue pill for when you want to stay in business for the long term."
    *warning:
    If you have a convention of pricks that lasts more than two days, please seek medical treatment.

      1. Barbara_

        Sorry, Soros. Try thinking of Toto's song "Africa." It's a nice way to think of something else.

      2. MissTaken

        Don't think of them, they can't find them under their fupas. And as they say, 'out of sight, out of mind'.

        It's gonna take a lot to take me away from you.

        1. SorosBot

          I hope the Tampa prostitutes are charging hazard pay for having to find those things.

          and She's coming in a 12:30 flight. The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation.

      In Tom Wolfe's "A Man in Full," the foreclosing lender announces a Cactus.

      "Don't you mean a caucus?" asks the developer.

      "No – a cactus. The pricks are on the outside."

    1. Gleem McShineys

      This is two strikes against him. First, for letting the cat out of the bag about the base of their party, and second, for actually showing that Republicans CAN tell the truth.

      That second one looks really bad compared to things like Ryan's speech last night.

      DON'T LET THEM KNOW WE ACTUALLY CAN STATE TRUE THINGS, LINDSAY, YOU TRAITOR

  2. vulpes82

    Miss Lindsey would like to gnaw on more than some male anger, ifyouknowwhatImean. Also, HAM BISCUITS!

  3. IncenseDebate

    Lindsey is the girl who gets angry when she shows up at a party and another girl has on the same dress.

  4. Baconzgood

    FYI

    I'm an angry white guy (So angry some times my rage bursts a blood vessel in my eyeball), and I don't vote Republican.

        1. Blueb4sinrise

          Fuckin somebody better come up with some fuckin pinot noir and farfalle with a light basil sauce RIGHT FUCKIN NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
          Amirit!!!///?????????????????

        If it lasts for more than four hours, you should consult your physician.

        Either that, or there's an app for that.

    1. Willardbot9000_V2.5

      I'm an angry white guy and my anger used to manifest itself in hitting Mormons…now I don't live near any Mormons…on the upside, I do get to hate Mitt Romney. Did I mention good Mormon girls are like Catholic girls with non-Mormons? at least they were when I was in high school…

      Or to better say it, "I came here to chew bubblegum and kick Mormon ass, and I'm all out of Mormons…"

    1. ChernobylSoup

      And mocha people tend to be very beautiful, so as a fellow white I say bring on the miscegapocalypse.

    2. Charlie_Foxtrot

      As a middle-aged white guy, I have to admit that the opinions and attitudes of middle-aged white guys is baffling to me. The sooner the domination of middle-aged white guys is a distant memory, the better.

      As a middle-aged white guy, I must also admit that I dance like a middle-aged white guy. The sooner this, too, becomes a distant memory the better place America will be. Particularly the wedding receptions.

  5. actor212

    After all, Chuck Todd says that Democrats are super totes jeals over all the diversity at the GOP convention!

    Dude, when Obama steps out on stage, the Democratic convention automatically becomes more diverse than the stage at Tampa would have been if they dragged a load of Cuban boat people out of storage, who you kidding?

    1. tihond

      But… But… The Republican ticket has it all. A rich white guy and a really really rich white guy.

    2. Lot_49

      If you think Chuck Todd's show on MSNBC is lame, you should see it when Lil' Luke Russert fills in for him.

  6. Fuck Toad

    I can't believe he actually said that. Someone slip some sodium thiopental into his ham biscuits?

    Countdown to gay sex scandal in 10, 9, 8…

    ETA: I'm also glad to see that my namesake is still saying shit so dumb that it drops one's IQ to hear it!

  7. fartknocker

    You think you have demographic problems because you don't have enough old, white fellars. From everything I've read anyone of African-American heritage is not very supporting of the RNC messages, along with quite a few women folk.

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      Bacon, wouldn't that make them happy white guys? Maybe serve them with those little umbrellas???

        1. Baconzgood

          Now that I think about it if they would have given out free beer when I went to Bristol I would have enjoyed it.

    2. Rotundo_

      Eliminate beer sales at NA$CAR races and watch the bubbas boil and froth! I know the old line about "Instant Asshole-Just Add Alcohol" as seen on a million tee-shirts, but wait until you come between one of those fellas and a brewski: Tell them Obama teamed up with the Women's Christian Temperance Union and watch them start popping blood vessels like popcorn.

  8. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    “The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    I'm pretty sure he is talking about his side bathhouse business, and the fact that he can't find enough power tops.

  9. rickmaci

    “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    Lindzee. Just a suggestion to you and your Reptard boy friends; no matter how hard you guys may try, butt sex will never result in generating more angry white guys.

    1. Lot_49

      True, but the AWG demographic gets into a homophobic panic nearly indistinguishable from anger whenever butt sex is discussed.

  10. ottercliff

    How exactly do you "generate" angry white guys? In any case, I think you would need to generate OLD angry white guys to fit the bill.

    1. hagajim

      You generally generate angry white guys by using scare tactics about "those" people (insert pretty much any minority or an LBGT person) and then convince them that "they" are ruining the Merikan dream….seems to be the GOP playbook for the past 40 or so years anyway.

      1. Lot_49

        What happens if you tell WGs that their votes for Dubya and his ilk are what's limiting their opportunities in life, strangling the economy, and making it necessary to impoverish themselves if they lose their jobs or have a sick relative?

    2. Rotundo_

      Fill their pointy little heads with all sorts of fairy tales about black welfare queens driving Escalades while dealing crack and pissing on the flag like Limbaugh does. They'll believe *anything* about someone who isn't white, male and christian (at least nominally so).

    3. HarryButtle

      Didja ever see Lord of the Rings, where Christopher Lee is makin' all those gross, shit-covered slimy orcs? I imagine it's a lot like that.

    4. bobbert

      Well, in my case, reading about fuckass Republicans takes care of generating the anger (I come preloaded with old and white).

    5. Negropolis

      Nah. Seems to me that you just tell any of them that the government is taking something away from them and giving it to "the blacks." Works every time. Works like a charm.

      1. OneDollarJuana

        Texans always brag about how when they shoot something it stays dead, so here's my (urban cowboy) hat off to them.

    1. MosesInvests

      Actually, the voter ID thing got shot down a while ago. What just got shot down was the completely racist redistricting plan that the Lege drew up.
      EDIT-Looks like this was an appeal of the voter ID thing that the courts decided against Tejas (I spell it that way to p*ss off the wingnuts. Just like I pronounce Spanish words like they're Spanish-Guadalupe instead of "Gwad-a-loop", for example.)

  11. orygoon

    Some of my best friends are white guys, but evenso, I generally cross the street when I see one.

    1. Lot_49

      You've got to be particularly careful walking the streets in their neighborhoods. Just ask Trayvon about that when you see him.

    2. Negropolis

      Look, orygoon, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of shows I watch and website I vist; hell, some of my best friends are white, for pete's sake! But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in generic white people garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as white people, I get worried. I get nervous…

  12. SoBeach

    We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.

    And the best part is those manufactured angry white guys are so rock-stupid they'll never catch on that they've been played by cynical propagandists. In fact, the republican machine can look them straight in the eye, laugh, and flat tell them they've been "generated". The angry white dipshits will blink once or twice, then run off screaming something about socializm nazi Kenyan muslims.

  13. Pap Finn

    Well, they'll just have to get the Koch Bros. to fund a crash program to build high-capacity Angry White Guy hatcheries in all 50 states, and generate some more, by God!

  14. mrpuma2u

    Sounds like a back-handed comment that the brownz/coloreds are out breeding the WASP's. What an epic douche this guy is. Why is he a Senator?

  15. Callyson

    how does the GOP generate more angry white guys?

    Did you see the anti – porn part of their party platform?

  16. elviouslyqueer

    Oh good lord. Would somebody please go out on the front porch, drag Aunt Lindsey back inside, give her a hot toddy, and get her settled on the settee before she scares any more of the damn sheep?

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      I get this picture of Vicki Lawrence as Mama in Mama's Family. Only not as "aware" and "in control".

      1. elviouslyqueer

        I swear, Lindsey wouldn't be out of place in a Carson McCullers novel or a Flannery O'Connor or Eudora Welty short story. AT ALL.

  17. Come here a minute

    The Republican convention is making this white guy angry, but it's not going to win them any elections.

  18. RRoccoco

    Lindsey Graham Feeding on a White Male Angler? Ewww. I'll never enjoy trout fishing again. Or graham crackers. Or Lindsey Lohan. Okay, maybe graham crackers. With bourbon.

  19. punkneverdies

    This obsession with the "you didn't build it" comment is hilarious since it was perfectly obvious that Obama was talking about the singular "you" not the plural. I thought they were upset that they weren't getting credit for individual exceptionalism, but now they're using "We Built It!" as the slogan and that was the goddamn point, it's not just one person it's a whole community.

  20. Goonemeritus

    More and more it seems Lindsey Graham is just phoning in the GOP talking points. I’m starting to feel sorry for the little guy. Is there a 6 step program for the GOP cult because if there is I think he is saveable.

  21. Eve8Apples

    “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    It's called evolution Lindz. If the ignorant, neanderthal, cave dwelling, mouth breathing, science hatin' bastards in your party would put down their Bibles and start embracing Darwin, you could figure it out. The angry white guy is evolving out of existence due to his poor diet, lack of exercise, fascination with guns, low self-esteem and spiteful view of the world. Good riddance to all of them.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      I'm just the white part, but damn. I'm pretty annoyed as well. It has been amazing watching people get so excited by easily provable bullshit. It makes me tired when people cheer false reality and aren't on acid.

    2. Gleem McShineys

      Mitt's insults to the Brits was an attempt to kickstart an angry white man factory over in the native land of whitey, but it didn't really work out , apparently.

  22. ManchuCandidate

    White Male anger is the Mayo of democracy.

    It's heart clogging, spoils easy, from the commercials resides in a fantasy world where it is the top of the heap and daily interaction ruins your appetite.

  23. punkneverdies

    I just hope this means Lindsey realizes that they need to appeal across broad demographics and stop acting like legislating morality goes in bed with small government.

    What he should do is say "Hay yawl! As most of yawl know I'm just about as gay as a Tennessee Williams protagonist. Yeah I know I denied it forevah but you know how these ol' boys in my party are! But don you worry your pretty head, because I'm still gonna be a Republican! I just ain't gonna support their anti-gay agenda anymore. But low taxes and Ayn Rand are still a-ok with me! Anywayz, I'm goin to see Robyn tonite with Mark Foley XOXO Ham & Biscuits ;)"

    1. Arborista

      Yes to the first part.

      As for the second part, I could write a long post trying to give my take on Lindsey's place in SC politics, but I know it's more fun to holler 'Ham Biscuits!', so I won't bother. I will only say that most SC voters don't seem to care about his sex life so long as they don't have to hear about it, & I suspect that if there were a viable 2nd party in this state, he'd probably be glad to divorce all those Teabaggers who can't stand him.

      1. punkneverdies

        I definitely don't want to seem like I think any of that is realistic whatsoever. I mean, if he came out he'd have to run for republican in a liberal state.

  24. Jus_Wonderin

    I gotta say, this day at Wonkette has made me a newly-minted, angier white man. But probably not what LG is looking for.

  25. weejee

    Lindsey forgot the word OLDE. Teh Nielsen ratings show a lot fewer folks watching the Repug's convention on the tea vee, than in 2008. Also, too, and guess what? They are olde, over 67% over 55. And guess what²? Folks watching in the age range of 18 to 34 was less than 7% (obvs, that is because the youngz were all live blogging in Wonkette). Guess what³, Faux Newz kicked second place NBC 6.9M:4.8M.

    But Lindsey, open your Liberace soul on this. Teh angry whites you got are heavy to oldes, and all your colleagues' voter reregistration ministrations will not be helping to get those in oxygen tents down to the polls, since your angry young whites are now in Federal slammers for meth labs and poorly thought-out terrorism schemes. Silly GOP, need to study the maths! You can't win the White House with just NASCAR and bedpans. You simply can't.

  26. Chet Kincaid_

    The Washington Post blithely publishes this paragraph without even a thought of questioning the veracity of what "Republicans argue":

    Not all of the race talk has been of the party’s own making. Many Republicans argue that Democrats’ obsession with the issue has forced it to the forefront. They say Democrats have used overtly racial appeals to fire up their base, citing Vice President Biden’s recent charge at a Virginia campaign event attended by hundreds of black voters that the GOP’s approach to financial regulation would“put y’all back in chains.”

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Yeah — voter ID laws? Those are the fault of the Democratic Party for riling up the Mexicans and blacks by — um — making them aware that Republicans were disenfranchising them with voter ID laws. Same thing with transvaginal probes for women who want abortion — if nobody told them about it to begin with, they wouldn't be so angry.

    2. pdiddycornchips

      That's just how it is. Henry Louis Gates got agitated and made that cop arrest him.
      Treyvon Martin wasn't shot 'cause he was black, it was the hoodie. People of color are the real racists . Go fuck yourselves America.

    3. zwoits

      I misread Virginia as Viagra….I think hundred of blacks attending a Viagra event would be quite intimidating to a white male GOP voter.

  27. anniegetyerfun

    Well, Linz, you could always come out of the closet and then switch parties. You know, sacrificial lamb and all.

  28. SoBeach

    After the election the various factions of angry white geezers that make up the republican party are going to turn on each other like beauty queens backstage. It'll be the redneck racists blaming the bible thumpers blaming the libertardians blaming the country clubbers. It'll be glorious.

  29. shelwood46

    Shh, Lindsay. They're going to figure out the purpose of trying to ban abortion in cases of rape and incest. Especially incest.

  30. bibliotequetress

    I hope he's right. I hope there aren't enough angry white guys for, well, anything. And I also find it plausible that Mitt was "generated," not "born."

  31. pdiddycornchips

    Prediction: Lindsey becomes the Dems answer to Zell Miller. But wearing a floral print dress and bright red lipstick.

  32. Monsieur_Grumpe

    If you want to make a white guy angry just__________________________

    Fill in the blank! All races welcome! Give Lindsey a helping hand!

  33. Respitetini

    Is this what they meant by they're "not going to fact-check the campaign?" That they're actually going to tell the truth?

    Mother of God…

  34. Biff

    The fuck, ham biscuit? You got the ultimate angry old white guy speaking tonight, Clint Eastwood.

    Wonder which applause line will work best–"Make my day", or "Get off my lawn"…

  35. Eve8Apples

    I just read that Clint Eastwood will be the surprise speaker at the convention tonight after Senator Rubio. Isn't Clint Eastwood The Imperial Wizard of the angry white guy group?I hope he stands at the podium and snarls at all the brown people, "GET OFF MY LAWN YOU DAMN PUNKS!!!"

    1. Jus_Wonderin

      Oh, Lindzee will be weak at the knees for Rowdy Yates. Head 'em up. Move 'em out. Rawhide!!

    2. pdiddycornchips

      Clint Eastwood is senile. He thinks he's speaking at the Friar's Club Roast for Charlie Sheen.

    3. Biff

      I was just in Carmel Valley a week ago. Had I known he would pull this crap, I'd have done some burnouts in his driveway, after crashing his security gate.

      Fuck that guy, is what I mean to say.

  36. littlebigdaddy

    Yet another gaffe of the Kinsleyan type: telling the plain truth about something in politics.

  37. Pithaughn

    Huh, I wonder why he would just come right out and admit it?
    According to a new study by Farleigh Dickinson University, Fox viewers are the least knowledgeable audience of any outlet, and they know even less about politics and current events than people who watch no news at all.

  38. HarryButtle

    “The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”

    Well, Lindsay, it's certainly not for a lack of trying.

  39. T3rbo

    Wait no, fuck that: I am an angry white man and I have nothing to do with these assholes or their interests. At all. Leave it republicans to stereotype fucking white people.
    I'm angry that this asshole is supposed to represent my interests and he won't
    I'm angry that this piece of shit fucking RUINED my country and
    I'm angry that we have 11 trillion dollars in debt thanks to this sham fucking war on terror, and I'm angry that assholes like this want to scapegoat poor people

    I'm an angry white man and I wouldn't piss on most republican members of congress if they caught fire, and I'll be damned if I ever vote for any of these assholes

    Angry White for Obama 2012 is the sole party responsible for this message and is not affiliated with any candidate

    1. VA_Dreaming

      Why would you be surprised about republicans stereotyping whites, they stereotype every other race, gender, and political position. When you aren't intelligent enough to deal with people as individuals, you have to resort to stereotypes to keep who you hate straight.

  40. VA_Dreaming

    Since most of the mass killings are done by angry white guys, I'm thinking the GOP is still generating too many for my taste. I would rather see more calm people intent on seeing everyone prosper.

  41. Jus_Wonderin

    And immediately after Lindsey Graham said this, he pulled the crumpled tissue from the sleeve of his sundress. Dabbed the corner of each eye. Carefully unclasped his bag. Tucked the tissue inside. And, with a snap of the clasp and a quick twirl on his heel, was off for the next vote.

  42. Buzz Feedback

    Angry white guys have the Republicans. But what about stupid white guys like Chuck Todd? Who's there for them?

    1. ImForMitt!

      Truly the Republican tent is big enough for BOTH angry white guys AND stupid white guys! It truly is the party of diversity!

  43. belmontreport

    He wants to replace the angry white men with gay white men. Get it, because gay used to mean happy and people always say that they think that Lindsey is gay. (The best jokes are the ones that have to be explained.)

  44. GeorgiaBurning

    Speaking as an angry white guy, I'm angry at the Rethuglicans for destabilizing the banks, raising taxes for most of us, tripling the national debt, starting needless wars, decimating the middle class, and alienating a generation of Americans. Keep up the great work, Lindsey, don't let people make fun of you for the girly name.

    1. MissTaken

      Nooooo! I was so looking forward to Holo-Ronnie eating some jelly beans and falling asleep on stage.

  45. IonaTrailer

    OH SNAP! The mystery speaker is going to be Clint Eastwood.
    I am shocked. Totally shocked. What happened? Is this Alzheimer's?
    Say it ain't so!

      1. IonaTrailer

        (OT-but – my dad went to school with the original Steverino. What a great funny man he was.)

        1. Steverino247

          Your dad was a very lucky man. I used to watch The Steve Allen Show all the time when I was a kid. I can't even remember when it was on, but I don't think I missed a show except when I was sent to my room for something stupid.

    1. LibertyLover

      I wanna see this. The actor of the "Halftime in America" commercial touting the recovery of the American Car Industry stumping for Mitt "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" Romney.

      There is some fresh irony right there. In the end, I'm sure that Clint will deliver his lines very well. Unless he's there to suffocate Romney with a pillow.

    2. SorosBot

      But I thought Republicans didn't like it when those Hollywood types spout off on politics as if they were experts!

      1. bobbert

        Clint's not a "Hollywood type", he's an "icon". See? Oh, and he's been a Repubic forever, so it's OK.

  46. EarnestTaxpayer

    Generating more angry white guys fits in with their plan where the white fellas get all rapey with some white ladies, who can't have abortions, and whose rapey daddies don't hang around to be good daddies, thus resulting in more angry white fellas to get all rapey with some white ladies……(cuz you know, single mom, she actually wanted it, daddy got the criminal gene….I saw this on Law N Order)

  47. deleted4877492

    There are rumors of welfare recipients being abandoned, but their lifelines will not be cut because of possible ghetto rioting. Total national household wealth is over 65 trillion dollars, 20% is held by middle-class homeowners. It is a tempting morsel to chew on.

    1. SorosBot

      With our usual trolls, you can kind of see what they're trying to say, if you squint; but this here, this just makes no sense whatsoever. Maybe you should try laying off the meth?

      1. polnick

        The brain dead have no intuition they need facts, the Mystic finds reality by intuition. Most visitors on this site can only see with implanted information..

        1. SorosBot

          The Mystics – you mean the creatures that were separated from the Skeksis in The Dark Crystal? I don't remember them finding reality by intuition.

          Oh and the brain dead are the people who follow their intuition instead of facts, moran.

        1. SorosBot

          Huh. Another troll who got called out yesterday also quickly deleted their account; I wonder if this was the same guy or our trolls are just getting ridiculously thin-skinned.

  48. Generation[redacted]

    I can't believe I'm the one saying this, but…

    You know who ELSE couldn't generate enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term?

  49. LibertyLover

    Aha! That is why they are against abortions for rape victims… that would definitely create some angry white persons right there.

  50. MissTaken

    Just turned on the RNC stream. I see that after 3 days neither the band nor the dancing delegates have improved. In fact, it seems worse, much worse.

    1. SorosBot

      I'm starting CNN's livestream now; at the moment there appears to be nothing going on, just an empty stage and conventioneers milling about.

      1. MissTaken

        You missed the band playing the Beatles' "Eight Days a Week" and the delegates hip thrusting to it.

        I did not came.

  51. randcoolcatdaddy

    Gee, Lindsey … so you've finally figured out that selling Republicanism is a bit like selling horseless carriages to people who want to get somewhere faster than 10 miles per hour without shoveling horseshit?

  52. ttommyunger

    Judging from the size of that smile, I'd say he just got a reach-around from some really big, really angry white guy.

  53. SorosBot

    Here's Connie Mack IV talking about the importance of individual effort and hard work. Really. This is one of the most unintentionally ironic speeches I've ever heard.

    1. emmelemm

      Yes, nothing to do with taxpayer funds going to NASA where edumacated people (who might have gone to public school!) did great things.

      Nothing at all!

    1. reliefsinn

      Crap, I have nothing alcoholic in the house. Now Gingrich is on, honestly, Callista looks as if ray-beams are going to start shooting from her eyes.
      Beam on!

  54. TootsStansbury

    OT: i thought I was seeing Scot Walker the other day on the TV but I think it was this Prince Reebo person, they all look alike with their rat faces; squinty eyed bastards.

    1. SayItWithWookies

      Scott Walker's tell is that when he says a lie he nods (which is supposed to encourage the viewer to think of it as affirmation) and then looks quickly to the left. That's one of the tricks I use to differentiate them.

  55. Neoyorquino

    They're generating plenty of angry white guys, like me. Trouble for them is, I'm angry at the GOP, not with them.

  56. BoroPrimorac

    They don't need angry white guys. They just need to convince all the non-white kids that the rich are awesome and they're be back in bidness.

  57. SorosBot

    They're repeating the lie that Obama "gutted" the welfare work requirements. No he didn't – although doing so would be a good idea. This is just flat-out lying; Newt your pants are on fire.

    There must be some sort of contest to see who can utter the most bullshit in their speech. Newt said Romney's energy plan was the type of bold something-or-other that Reagan would have done. Um — has anyone heard or seen a Romney energy plan?

      Well, Reagan's "bold" move was to take the solar panels off the White House, and it's been downhill ever since. Conservatives haven't had any good ideas, period, concerning energy policy or global warming, never mind "bold" ones.
      I might need an intervention if I keep watching this bs.

    I live in Ohio, but I want one of those giant foam Michigan hands they just showed on C-SPAN. No snark.

    So any live-blogging tonight? I hear Mitt's going to present DNA samples proving he's actually human.*

    Just watching Callista "Whore Diamonds" Gingrich & hubby addressing a sad crowd who can't party for three hours anymore, much less three days in the heat and fuck it….

      What the fuck is this? And why did Ann look like her kid just won a spelling bee? And WHY with all that money could they not do something about the size of what ever his name is' gums?

    So now's the part when the Republicans try and convince the non-racist white people that they're not really racist and don't hate Latinos. Sorry they've made it way too obvious recently.

    Kept us safe? Kept us SAFE? By bombing all the browns of the planet into oblivion? Fuck you, Jeb, AND your moron brother.

      And by, when given a briefing titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack in US", saying "Now your ass is covered".

  64. SorosBot

    Jeb is out, but not the actual former president; it's almost like they don't to remind us of why everyone hates their party.

  65. SayItWithWookies

    Wow, what a diss from Jeb — He said something about his father and grandfather being inspiring figures who did great things and then said "And as for my brother — well, I love my brother."

    Too bad it didn't stop there. The haranguing of Obama for allegedly blaming his predecessor for the situation we're in now, though, is especially tiresome from someone whose brother has yet to acknowledge the failure that was 9/11, which actually happened on his watch. Feh, Jeb.

    Another OT I am just watching Chappelle; goddammit funny! Fuck these assholes. Funny wins. Always.

    How come improving America's schools doesn't get bigger applause than McCain's 4 more wars speech?

  68. Biff

    It's spitting rain, hail, and it's blowing like crazy. Ima go walk around in it, rather than watch this shit.

    These kids were once written off, by WHOM? WHO do you think was trying to fuck over Hispanic kids?

  70. SayItWithWookies

    Jeb says Rick Scott has made Florida's schools most improved among hispanics and some other groups — I can only imagine he did this by making the education for the white kids suck just as much as that for the minority kids.

  71. Negropolis

    I like angry white guys…like Bill Maher and Michael Moore and honorary angry white guys like Jon Stewart and Lewis Black.

    The ones that aren't angry at social injustice, though? Yeah, not so much.

    It's remarkable that to this fuckwit, "winning the demographics race" means getting more white male votes. Does not sound like a winning strategy to me, not now and most certainly not in the future.
