GOP Minority Outreach (Don't Step In The Macaca)

"The salt of the Earth, the common clay, you know …


Starving Artist, nostalgic for the 50s, before Evil Liberals destroyed civic life and even blacks didn’t seem all that discomforted by segregation:

“I don’t hear no singing! You sang like birds when you wuz slaves!”

No, no, Captor, you’ve got the emphasis all wrong.

“You gotta remember that these are simple farmers; people of the land; the common clay of the new West.
You know, morons.”

Man, this election is shaping up to be the entertainment of the decade. I was almost worried at first, before McCain showed his true colours, but this… this is amazing. Too bad the election has such wide-reaching consequences.

Perhaps the GOP should have guys in monkey suits in the crowds, just for deniability.

“No, sir, I wasn’t referring to you, I was referring to the gentleape next to you. The gorilla-type person.”

I’m glad you’re entertained. I am not. Vast numbers of Americans seem to be extraordinarily gullible, and vast numbers of others are so disgusted by the process as to opt out together.

It stuns me to incomprehension why even 1 single woman would change to a McCain voter because of Sarah Palin, yet perhaps millions seem to be considering it. The bubble does seem to be bursting, but I don’t get how it got inflated in the first place.

I’m seriously worried that this is not a done deal.

Keep in mind that McCain did better with white women before the convention than after it. His ploy does not seem to have worked in that regard, looking at the general population and not at specific voters.

His problem in that regard is that he’s asking Hilary supporters to back a woman who was picked over older, less attractive, more qualified women not because of any particular achievement on Palin’s part but because of her looks, naked ambition, and guile.
That’s exactly the type of person Hilary supporters hate hate hate, more than the horn-dog pig men who do the picking.

Also, instead of waiting for true sexism to emerge organically from the press, the McCain camp started screaming sexism pre-emptively. Which made them look silly.

His ploy gives “liberal” white women who are closeted racists an excuse to not vote for Obama. Not a good excuse, but better than nothing. The real question is, how many of them are there?

I’m entertained because while McCain may have extreme right hands up his ass controlling what he says, I imagine if he’s elected he’ll tell them to piss off and run the country his way.

And whatever way that is, it would be a million times better than Bush.

I have some faerie dust and a bridge I would like to sell you.

Oh yeah, three magic beans as well.

Perhaps a map to the Lost Dutchman gold mine?

Same thing, right?

Has McCain shown any inkling that he plans to pander to the religious right on any issue? Because I’m pretty sure he hasn’t.

Does picking Sarah Palin for VP count as evidence?

Do you know what I think? I think this is the GOP sending a very strong and clear message to us minorities.
Yeah, I hear ya, ya bunch of cracker motherfuckers.

Only once every couple of days for the last year or so.

Do you remember McCain’s endorsement from James Hagee? Because both McCain and Hagee would probably prefer you didn’t. :wink:

Ditto! But how come I always hear about this stuff so late? Never knew that he was making fun of my people. I could have had something to be up in arms about!

Seriously, I don’t understand why people don’t learn to just shut their damn mouths. Why would you call anybody a ___ if you “didn’t know the meaning of the word”? And if you knew it was racist, more reason to shut your damn mouth. And to address the broader issue of racism…even if you think all of us Indians are ragheads, does it really take anything away from you to keep it to yourself? Especially when you’re living a public life?

“Vote McCain: He Won’t Do What He Says He’ll Do”

They should run with that.

I wonder how many minorities will show up to this thing, and how much the ones that do got paid to be there.

Imagine into one hand, crap into the other, and let us know which one fills up first.

I forget who it was who made the Mc=W^2 suggestion, but I’ve converted it into an icon.

Whatever, I still it’ll take a dead girl or a live boy (I believe that is the expression) to derail Obama’s chances.
