Bambam could have called them “pickaninnies” and they wouldn’t have complained.

Whenever he speaks to a Black audience, he sounds so much like Kingfish from “Amos ‘N Andy.”

I was in Grade school during the Ford Administration, not working for them.

Though This cute little number contains a big band version of the infamous quote.

Funniest line was Baldwin as Perry “there are only two people I listen to; Jesus Christ and Rachel Maddow”

googled it yesterday to explain to xsteen what had happened. it’s pretty appalling and imagine today he’d have been SHOT for saying such a thing.

That was an ugly win last night - I never expected the colts to play your team so close - how many INTs did Rapelessburger throw?

That's where they needed Gary Johnson in there to agree.

Only one INT. It was the getting mugged of the ball while being sacked that hurt.

Though the net “QB sack/fumble/return for TD” stat was a pleasant zero.

Appalling? Coarse maybe...but I thought he was describing the third level of Maslow’s hierarchy....

Hillary Clinton did a better ethnic accent than Obammy when she read that Harriet Tubbman poem or whatever she read during her campaign.

I have a hard time looking at Big Ben - he looks so much like the ugly former husband of one of my best friends. She is an absolute knock out and he is just so fugly no one could ever figure out why she fell for him. As it turns out, he was exactly what I thought and left her for another woman.....and he will leave her when he gets bored.

Thanks .... actually, more so dumbfounded than inspired, that this melange of young, relatively untested players and a “journeyman” Quarterback could essentially pull off the same trick two weeks in a row...

(No love lost that it was New England, either ;)

The only reason i even know the outcome of NFL games is bc my hockey peeps that i follow on twitter comment on it. Slava Malamud is a foreign correspondent for a Russian sports daily and he also contributes to the WaPo and he was the one tweeting about the Bills game yesterday.

Do you guys remember that absolutely jaw-dropping “joke” he told, which caused him to resign as Ford’s Sect of Ag?

No, I only remember James Watt's quite accurate description of gov't diversity.

He described a panel of his as being properly diverse because it had “a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple.”

It was then I learned that people don’t like people telling the truth too bluntly.

Yes, and they had talent. But one must not mock the gods of affirmative action.

Barry's prob still upset of NY9. The Joos.

Either that or he was getting in touch with his inner Wright and Farakhan.

I spent last week surrounded by people your parents’ age and then some. I’ll bet they could have told me all about it.

&F weekend had herman on and showed his reaction to that clip, and he was LHAO, said he was going to use that line in his next debate performance.

Well, he said that Washington needed to get a sense of humor. Perhaps this is the beginning.
