I thought I knew who I was... [Oct. 24th, 2008|06:33 pm]

[Current Mood |determineddetermined]

I'm reminded of nothing so much as the time that Milwaukee's former police-chief-for-life Harold Breier announced that the only people who opposed his iron rule were "Negro homosexual communists"! Cicatrice turned to me and said deadpan, "You never told me you were black!"

Rep. Robin Hayes (R-N.C.) has conceded that he did tell a North Carolina crowd that "liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God," even though he initially denied making such a statement.

Hayes' comment came the day after Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that the media should investigate which members of Congress are "anti-America" and which are "pro-America."
In Greensboro, N.C., Sara Palin had said at a recent rally that "we believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard-working, very patriotic, pro-America areas of this great nation."

Hayes, Bachmann and Palin et al. are leaving me very much tempted to highly un-Christian replies of "FOAD!" or equivalent, on behalf of me and all the other genuinely hard-working, very patriotic, pro-America people that work and accomplish and achieve, whether (like me) they believe in God, or don't, and who are working our hardest to keep these people and their cohorts in idiocy out of office.
