After the past two weeks, I've made up my mind....
I will vote to put Hill-Billy in the White House only after I've made a meal of ground-glass covered (used) urinal cakes accompanied by a vintage bottle of battery acid and anti-freeze.
If she's the Democratic Party nominee, I'll skip the presidential race and move on down the ballot.
When Big Hearted Ole Trent made his original comments, Wee Gordie was in New Zealand and released a statement denouncing the Senate Majority Leader's comments in no uncertain terms. Now that he "knows what they meant" he's totally in agreement....
I'd love to know if Wee Gordie, like his co-religionist Willard Romney, pulled his car over to the side of the road in 1978 and wept with relief when he heard that the Grand Wizards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would abjure the following tenet, explained in 1966 in a book on Mormon Doctrine by Apostle Bruce McConkle:
"Negroes in this life are denied the Priesthood; under no circumstances can they hold this delegation of authority from the Almighty. (Abra. 1:20-27.) The gospel message of salvation is not carried affirmatively to them... Negroes are not equal with other races where the receipt of certain spiritual blessings are concerned, particularly the priesthood and the temple blessings that flow there from, but this inequality is not of man's origin. It is the Lord's doing is based and his eternal laws of justice, and grows out of the lack of Spiritual valiance of those concerned in their first estate."
Wee Gordie spent the first 14 years of his life hearing this doctrine as the Word of God. It's sorta understandable if he's obviously flipfloppy about his feelings about Trent Lott's obviously flipfloppy approach to racism in America.
On the other hand, it could be that Wee Gordie, like Willard Romney, is a slick deceitful hypocrite of the highest (or lowest) order.
...Or Does This Look Like a Warm Up for the Arkansas Prison System's Entry in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade???
I cannot, CAN NOT, do justice to this family portrait... but if you want to read the comments of a great many sarcastic, cynical, and cruelly funny people who can, get your butt over to Wonkette - The DC Gossip and read the comments on this lovely little image... my favorite part is Mother Hucker choking the bitch. Keep in mind that while the Arkansas Governor's mansion was under reconstruction the family moved into a "trailer home." Double Wide Just. Would. Not. Cut. It!
Fair Warning: like most things Republicant, it requires a strong stomach to sit through.
Thanksgiving Day I posted a YouTube video starring Iowa College Republican Chairboy Benjamin Johnson suggesting that he was gonna drive Log Cabin club members wild. Now we not only have a second video, we have a letter from Benny protesting his heterosexuality. The letter comes to us from Wonkette via TowleRoad:
EMAIL FROM BEN JOHNSON TO COLLEGE REPUBLICANS
From: “Johnson, Benjamin A”
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2007 17:41:26
Dear National College Republican Leaders, Chairman and Distinguished officers,
As some of you may or may not have seen, my YouTube interviews have been raising quite a bit of controversy ( and dare I say venomous hatred?) online and in some national media outlets. As my respected colleagues I would just like to personally clarify a few things to you,
1. I am not actually gay, even though the way I dress and talk may betray that fact ever so slightly, ha.
2. Some people are responding angrily in my defense and as I truly appreciate you support please do not stoop to their levels. We are above them in so many ways and I like keeping it that way.
3. Solders in Iraq really do love beef jerky! I have the thank you letters to prove it. I encourage all of you to send them tons of it!
On a small side note, I find it strange that the ever so tolerant and accepting-of-all-lifestyles-Left have no problems calling me every gay-bashing offensive name in the book. Guess it just goes to prove that nothing is offensive or intolerant so long as your insulting a Republican. But none of it bothers me. If I am not hated by the Democrats, I am not doing my job.
Two final quick things,
I am initiating Iowa’s Operation Iraqi Christmas for the fourth year in a row and I would love to encourage all of you to be apart of it. Please visit http://www.anysoldier.com. This site is amazing! It is like a facebook for the US military serving in Iraq, and every solder has their picture up and personal Christmas wish list listed now! It is an incredible way to make an impact in the lives of these armed service men and women who fight for freedom every day. I have my chapters serving about three solders a piece, so Iowa will be sending 91 packages with our CR stickers plastered all over them so the troops know exactly who
is supporting them. I also will be sending a CR poster to every battalion with my email address asking for a thank you picture with our poster, those kind of pictures are priceless for good publicity! Just some Ideas.
Secondly, I would like to encourage all of you to join me for the Iowa Caucuses! Even though actual caucusing is reserved only for Iowa residents, there are plenty of great events going on across the state and I promise you will not be bored, which is rather rare in Iowa. I have the complete schedules of where all the candidates will be speaking during the day as well as VIP invitations from each candidate to their after parties. It would be my honor to have any of you join me for this amazing political experience! So please contact me if your interested!
I just want to say what an honor it has been working amongst such great Americans like yourselves! Thanks for your support and see you all soon!
Benjamin A. Johnson
