Republicans Blast Nevada Rancher for Failing to Use Commonly Accepted Racial Code Words

Via: The Borowitz Report – New Yorker

1

Republican politicians blasted the Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy on Thursday for making flagrantly racist remarks instead of employing the subtler racial code words the G.O.P. has been using for decades.

“We Republicans have worked long and hard to develop insidious racial code words like ‘entitlement society’ and ‘personal responsibility,’ ” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). “There is no excuse for offensive racist comments like the ones Cliven Bundy made when there are so many subtler ways of making the exact same point.”

Fox News also blasted the rancher, saying in a statement, “Cliven Bundy’s outrageous racist remarks undermine decades of progress in our effort to come up with cleverer ways of saying the same thing.”

Fox Business Correspondent: “If you’re poor, stop being poor”

AA1

After watching Aasif Mandvi’s segment on Thursday’s “Daily Show,” two things are clear: 1) America has the greatest healthcare system in the world (if 37th place is considered the greatest), and 2) some people shouldn’t do interviews with “Daily Show” correspondents.

Case in point, “Fox Business” commentator and NYSE Euronext Managing Director Todd Wilemon has a couple of jaw-dropping moments in this interview about “third world” healthcare conditions in Knoxville, Tennessee, not the least of which is his statement right at the end: “If you’re poor, stop being poor.”

Romney is clearly, ‘Bain Damaged’!

Romney in 2012:

“In order to make sure that I didn’t have a conflict of interest while I was Governor, or when I was considering a run for national office, I had a blind trust established.”

Romney in 1994:

“The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will, which is to say, you can always tell the blind trust what it can and cannot do.  You give a blind trust rules.”

Catholic League’s Bill Donahue goes ‘full-Nuge!’ on Stewart/Tony the Tiger

Via: Dependable Renegade

The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue is none-too-pleased with the Kellogg’s family of cereals, as it unaccountably refused to yield to his demands that it immediately stop advertising on the Jonathan Stewartsky Half-Hour Jew Hour That Hates Goys Full-Time.

Oooooh, what’d Kellogg’s say to Bill Donohue? Did they tell him to get fucked? Yes. Yes they did.

“We understand that our customers come from a variety of backgrounds, experiences, lifestyles, and cultures and we respect their individual decisions to choose the television programs that they deem acceptable for themselves and their families. Consumers speak most loudly when they vote with their remote control and change the channel or turn off the TV if a program does not fit their personal criteria.”

Hahahahaha, that is corporate-speak for “well bless your heart,” which is southern lady for “fuck you in the ass face down on a gravel road,” which is southern man for “Well, fine fellow, I must civilly disagree!”

~

And don’t think Bill Donohue doesn’t know exactly what he just heard! He’s so mad he’s about to go full-Nuge!

THIS SHALL NOT STAND!

“In other words, Kellogg’s is telling Christians to shove it.

But they made a mistake.

We will now send the indefensible picture to their senior management and board, as well as to community leaders, religious and secular, throughout Battle Creek, Michigan.

We are also calling for a national boycott of all Kellogg’s cereals.

Moreover, I will notify the public via TV, radio and our website about their collapse of decency.

 This is just for starters.

We have the time, money, and the determination to give Kellogg’s some free advertisement.”

personal thought regarding: “throughout Battle Creek, Michigan.”

Battle Creek is a company town, and the company is, Kellogg.

Trump eats pizza with a ‘plastic’ fork

Via: Huffington Post:

~~~

TRUMP and PALIN:

And Trump really rolled out the red carpet for Palin, taking her and her family out for a slice of pizza at Famous Famiglia’s in Times Square, whose are has recently been described as “a slice that tastes like a manila folder with Ragu slathered all over it.”

~~~

Jon Stewart:

“Based on how you eat pizza, Donald, I want to see your long form birth certificate. I don’t think you were really born in New York.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/02/jon-stewart-blasts-trump-palin-pizza_n_870118.html

~~~

Trump’s reply:

“A lot of people are asking why am I using plastic forks and knives that the pizza parlor gave. Well, I don’t walk around with forks and knives, and frankly, it was very comfortable.

Plus, this way you can take the top of the pizza off so you’re not just eating the crust. I like to not eat the crust so we can keep the weight down at least as good as possible.”

personal thought:

‘As good as possible’?

Golly, can’t help thinking he spent too much time with Palin.
