Pew Poll Demonstrates That Americans, Republicans, Not *That* Stupid

Hey-O, who has two thumbs and isn’t as stupid as you might have been led to believe? Oh, just 62% of Americans and 35% of Republicans, who think that the Republican party has become “too extreme.” For the record, we at Wonkette think that this is SILLY. Why on Earth would anyone find this “too extreme”? Or this? Or this? The answer here, clearly, is not to change the direction of the Republican party, but rather to take a hard look at messaging, and have Marco Rubio explain at Hispanics. That’s all, no need to change the ideas themselves; just the way the ideas sound when they come out of people’s mouths.

Good Morning, The Future Is Here!

Welcome, Wonkette readers! Racism is in the past, the CDC is promising there are no zombies, and we’re building weapons to fight aliens! Aren’t you glad the past is over? According to Pew, difference in political opinions is what most divides Americans, rather than race or class. At first, this sounds amazing, because hello? Hooray for being judged based on the content of our character rather than color of our skin (and make of our car)! But the numbers basically say, “We are not getting anything done any time soon.” [Washington Post] Read more on Good Morning, The Future Is Here!…

Mexicans Getting The Hell Out Of Miserable United States

What was that question from the dumb Republican debates, about Mexicans… oh yes: How do you “turn off the magnet” that brings all those Mexitrons to the United States? Well, it appears we have our answer: make the United States really shitty. The Pew Hispanic Center has released a new report that shows “the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed.” If so, it would be the first reversal since the Great Depression. Does this indicate that… something is wrong with the United States economy, now? Read more on Mexicans Getting The Hell Out Of Miserable United States…
 

Obama Starts National Conversation Among White People (About How They Hate Him)

A new Pew poll measures the effects of the Wright scandal on the Democratic race-to-hell. Everyone loved Obama’s speech, it seems! Especially these hippies: “In particular, white Democrats who hold unfavorable views of Obama are much more likely than those who have favorable opinions of him to say that equal rights for minorities have been pushed too far; they also are more likely to disapprove of interracial dating, and are more concerned about the threat that immigrants may pose to American values. In addition, nearly a quarter of white Democrats (23%) who hold a negative view of Obama believe he is a Muslim.” It is Typical of White People to think these things after Obama’s Christian church scandal, however.
