There Will Be Blood: Oklahoma Democrats Will Fight Where They Stand

Oklahoma yellow dogs: Joe Biden, left, and Jerry Brown. Some time during the candidate talent show – an actual talent show, featuring statewide Democrats running for office in blood-red Oklahoma, with the winner chosen by applause for a prize of a $100 donation and one precious hour of old Oklahoma ladies phone banking, courtesy of the Pottawatomie County Dems — I slid from the Tecumseh City Hall auditorium to its little kitchen to get started on the dishes. There were 120 dirty plates, with cutlery and coffee cups. My mother, current chair of the Pott County Democrats, had uncharacteristically permitted plastic cups for water, soda, and sweet tea. I threw them out before she could wander in and start worrying whether we shouldn’t wash and save those too. Environmentalism has its limits. For weeks my mother was absolutely convinced no one would come to the Dems’ big fundraiser for the year, the St. Patrick’s Day commiethon (not really a commiethon). It was raining pretty hard, and the power was out in parts of Tecumseh, or maybe Shawnee. “Don’t worry mama,” I chirped at her annoyingly. “Now they’ll definitely come, because they can’t watch TV!” They had. Every seat was taken – 120 of them — and every plate crusted with the sauce from piles of delicious beef stew prepared by a local woman who raised her own cattle. The lady had donated a few ribeyes for the silent auction as well. My mother was looking at a full house, and piles of money for the Democratic Club it would take us the whole next morning to count. The Pottawatomie County Democrats’ St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser was a smashing success. I was washing all the dishes because I didn’t want my mother’s friends to think she’d raised a daughter – in California, where I doubtless live with my common-law husband, Osama Bin Laden — who saw a pile of dishes and blithely ignored them. Mostly though I’d sneaked off to wash the dishes because one of the candidates – a collection of the kind of human odds and ends who will run for office as Democrats in Oklahoma — was in the middle of a very sub-Al Yankovich spoof of “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego.” It lasted, literally, 25 minutes. As you can imagine, it was “not” “good.” Other than that, the talent show was pretty outstanding. A candidate for James Lankford’s 5th Congressional District seat played “Fur Elise” on someone’s Casio keyboard, after speaking haltingly of the adoptive parents who had brought him home and loved him forever after his mother abandoned him as a preteen boy. I cried. There were poems, and songs, and dramatic readings, and beef stew. For her talent, state Senator Connie Johnson, running for US Senate against James Lankford, declaimed Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman.” In the back of the auditorium, we – I and a small group of my mom’s groovy liberal hippie (but now very put-together and blonded) ‘60s friends – hooted and yelled after she’d finished talking about the stride of her step, and the curve of her lip, and something something about her breasts and her hips. From the stage, though, Senator Johnson must have seen some old faces that weren’t beaming like ours were. From the stage, some of those old people looked mad. And horrified. Disgusted, even. After all, she did say “breast.” Fucking Oklahoma. Read more on There Will Be Blood: Oklahoma Democrats Will Fight Where They Stand…

Totally Sane New Randall Terry Ad Says Samuel L. Jackson Is Genociding Black Babies

So, this Randall Terry ad, airing in Florida, is sort of like those commercials for DishTV or whatever that draw a line from not having cable to being in prison forever for raping and murdering your son-in-law? Those are supposed to be funny (though they exclusively fail). This one, we think, is DEADLY SERIOUS. In this DEADLY SERIOUS campaign ad, Randall Terry is running against Samuel L. Jackson, because Jackson supports President B. Barry Bamz? But Jackson also supports Planned Parenthood? (Pro-tip to Terry: Obama supports Planned Parenthood too! Why not just cut out the middle man?) And Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, who in the 1920s and ’30s was a eugenicist, and fairly racist! (Though maybe not any more racist than everyone else in the ’20s and ’30s? And actually worked a lot with black ministers and stuff? Here, have some Wik!) Therefore, Samuel L. Jackson supports genociding black babies! STOP MURDERING BLACK BABIES SAMUEL L. JACKSON!!!! Read more on Totally Sane New Randall Terry Ad Says Samuel L. Jackson Is Genociding Black Babies…

Operation Rescue Founder Randall Terry Invites Your Wonkette To Drink Beer, Murder Children

Oh that is nice, Randall Terry, the pro-life activist and “Democrat” who beat Obama in 242 percent of the Oklahoma Democratic primaries this year, has a new website, and he is inviting the “child-killers” at Your Wonkette (along with the cool dudes at RightWingWatch and the humorless nags at Jezzy) to come join him for a virtual beer! This is awkward because Your Wonkette once made a very clever Heathers joke about Randall Terry loving his dead gay son, but then it turned out Randall Terry’s gay son was actually dead, and Your Wonkette had a brief and unwelcome (not to mention “unfamiliar”) bout with utter shame. Then we got over it, because there were children around that hadn’t yet been murdered. A woman’s work is just never done!

Insane Anti-Abortion Activist Randall Terry To Face Obama In Primaries

Our friend Randall Terry calls himself a Tea Party activist, and likes to go around protesting abortion with superb comic acting and the throwing of dead fetuses at tourist children, but he also apparently is going to face Obama in the 2012 Democratic primaries.

Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina

Last week, a “nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C.,” Randall Terry, came to Greenville, South Carolina and hanged and beat up effigies of Sen. Lindsey Graham. There is a precious photo gallery of this historical event of lolz, which may prove to be the turning point in our nation’s history. Photo One: Bystanders look on in utter glee. Photo Three: Lindsey’s head appears to be taped to a stuffed duck’s ass. Photo Four: Some delinquent hits the Lindsey pinata. Photo Six: Said delinquent looks evil and also dubious as abortion guy puts his arm around him. ET CETERA. Read more on Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina…

Randall Terry Orders, Teaches Everyone To Burn Pelosi & Reid

Violent anti-abortion galoot Randall Terry, as manifested on YouTube by this classically trained thespian, would like everyone to do something this Halloween season: form little backyard parties to burn effigies of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (as well as any nearby pumpkins! Halloween theme!) Here is the preview of something like that, presumably inspired by the recent fantasy film Inglorious Basterds.

Wonkette Went To Virginia For A Town Hall, And Randall Terry Went Nuts, The End

See, there he is! Randall Terry, who is somewhere between 37 and 124 years old, brought his Anti-Babykilling World Tour to the peaceful Virginia money cave of Reston yesterday evening to disrupt Rep. Jim Moran’s health care town hall, also featuring Doctor Howard Dean of Ver-mont. He succeeded for about 5 minutes, but then the cops kicked him out, and Howard Dean continued to slaughter babies, live, before the crowd of 2,500. Mostly, though, it was an informative (=boring) event, despite the 20-odd jackasses who couldn’t stop shouting monosyllabic vagaries whenever they didn’t like something.
