Conservative nutcases are talking about secession
. The head of the Texas secessionists said “there cannot be a union between those that esteem the principles of Karl Marx over the principles of Thomas Jefferson.” Great, with the state of the schools in Texas, nobody there knows who either of those guys is!
What’s going on with the Generals & Socialites scandal
? The person whose ego might be stoked by all this has to be Jill Kelley. Paula Broadwell reportedly warned General Allen that Kelley was a “seductress.”
Sweetie, I have news for you—if you “warn” a man that a woman is a seductress, you’re really just tipping him off that she’s a seductress. Even if they have no plans to do anything inappropriate, no man on earth hears “seductress” and thinks “Uh oh! Better stay away from that one!” If he’s looking for trouble, he knows she can provide it. And even if he wants to keep his hands clean, when he hears “seductress,” then he thinks of her as a test-your-skill game. I don’t know what makes a woman an irresistible seductress, but I know that being called a seductress really helps.
After the election disaster, Rush Limbaugh played Feliz Navidad
to “reach out to the Hispanic community.” Great, Rush—if you meant to reach out by slapping them in the face. Meanwhile, Ann Coulter says that Hispanics don’t vote for Republicans
because of “ethnic loyalty.” No Ann, Hispanics don’t vote for Republicans because of self-interest and common sense. Ann, Republicans can’t work against all the best interests of a group and then expect that group to vote for them... except for blue-collar whites, evidently.
Bill O’Reilly claims
that President Obama “doesn’t really share” the “values about religion” of Hispanics. Bill, you represent a party whose “religious values” include forcing rape victims to have the babies of their rapists. The only Spanish people who share the religious values of the Republican Party are the people who put on the Spanish Inquisition 500 years ago.
