“And isn’t an “octroon” like 1/8th of a buffoon? “

I think it’s a nasty cookie made out of coconut.

Pathetic loser, a lot like Mayor Bloomers.

“Is a mullato or octroon really black?”

Only when it supports an agenda.

This line of dialogue from a Three Stooges short keeps running through my brain several times a day when I read or hear the news.

The boys wreck this guys apartment trying to be paperhangers. When the guy sees the disaster, he says

“This is silly! It can’t be! It can’t be!!”

Mo, proudly replies:

“Oh yes it is!!!”

I decided to use this as my tag, as I feel like I’m in a never ending Three Stooges short...

I point that out as those who are all about “nuance” seem to stop when considering skin “color” There is some point where “white” suddenly becomes “black”. Even the South Africans were more nuanced. It’s just a point of annoyance.

"If we had about a million Heidi Klums trying to cross the border, the Mexican border of the United States, you know, the gorgeous blond from Germany or whatever, do you think that would be a problem with immigration right now, or is it really just ethnic?"

If we had about a million PhDs and engineers trying to cross the border rather than the teeming masses of uneducated poor that wouldn't be a problem either. Though I think ugly Democrat women would not be pleased with all those Heidi Klums either.

“Replace obama tomorrow with ANY black conservative and I assure you, I’ll sleep well.”

That’s right—unlike the Dems’ preoccupation with race, we don’t operate that way. In fact, race is not even on my list AT ALL as a criterion! The liberals and Dems are the ones who are totally focused on race, so they’re doing some PROJECTING when they accuse conservatives of exploiting race like THEY do.

I’ve heard it called a lot of things, but I’ve never heard a guy call it his wife.

I’m pretty sure he beats his wife every time he hears BO speak or sees a picture of him.

It has nothing to do with the fact that Obama is black. It’s because he’s RED that I oppose him with every fiber of my being.

And this guy has his own show on a cable news network.

Indeed. It's hard to believe the only people who ever watch are the cameraman and the director.

One of the things that make old alkies act nasty is that not much of anything succeeds in arousing them anymore.

Seeing the steady decline that’s come over Matthews in the last 12-13 years, I really have to wonder.

If Obama is a socialist America hater because of his race then I guess the answer is yes.

Honestly, what does Minnesota have to say for themselves? They gave us a senator who talks and acts like the ventriloquist dummy that he looks like more than than the statesman he should be.

These people are such idiots and apparently they can't read either.

The mexican gangs have adopted the muslim beheadings.

I’d imagine the source of much bitterness from the talking heads is that no matter what view they hold of themselves, America in general does not listen to or agree with them. They were furious that Clinton ended up as a dirty joke, Bush won twice (and held Congress for awhile), that “homosexuals” are still widely viewed as deviant, and that the Kenyan Pirate is suffering terribly in popularity, basically stalling his (and their) agenda as his own party flees from him (ala Clinton in 2000, when he offered to campaign for candidates and often received a polite “no thanks”). To understand what it must be like for these liberal talking heads, just imagine what other shows people are watching instead of theirs...

Remember all the economic policies you voted Matthews? Where are they?

http://change.gov/agenda/economy_agenda/

...Zero capital gains rate for investment in small businesses: Barack Obama and Joe Biden believe that we need to encourage investment in small businesses to help create jobs and turn our economy around. That’s why they will eliminate all capital gains taxes on investments made in small and start-up businesses. They also want to cut taxes for the small businesses that create jobs but are struggling with restricted access to credit on top of skyrocketing health care and energy costs.

Remember all the economic policies you voted Matthews? Where are they?

http://change.gov/agenda/economy_agenda/

...A tax cut for 95 percent of workers and their families — plus seniors: Barack Obama and Joe Biden propose a permanent tax cut of $500 for workers and $1,000 for families. A first round of these tax credits could be mailed out quickly by the IRS based on tax returns already filed for tax year 2007. In addition, Obama and Biden would extend these expedited tax credits to senior citizens who are retired as a down payment on his plan to eliminate taxes for all seniors making up to $50,000.

Extend unemployment insurance benefits and temporarily suspend taxes on these benefits: Millions of Americans are looking for work but unable to find it in the weak economy. Today, more than one in five unemployed workers has been out of work for more than half a year — the highest level since early 2005. Obama supported extending unemployment insurance this summer, but already 800,000 jobless workers have exhausted those benefits and are being left without any unemployment compensation. Obama and Biden believe Congress should immediately extend unemployment insurance for an additional 13 weeks to help families that are being hit hardest by this downturn. In addition, they believe we should temporarily suspend taxes on unemployment insurance benefits as a way of giving more relief to families.

Penalty-free hardship withdrawals from IRAs and 401(k)s in 2008 and 2009: Many families are going to be facing unique economic hardship over the coming year. To help these families pay their bills and their mortgages and make it through these tough times, Obama and Biden are calling for legislation that would allow withdrawals of 15% up to $10,000 from retirement accounts without penalty (although subject to the normal taxes). This would apply to withdrawals in 2008 (including retroactively) and 2009.
Instruct the Treasury to allow seniors to delay required withdrawals from 401(k)s and IRAs: Currently seniors are required to start withdrawing from their 401(k)s and IRAs at age 70 1/2 and every year thereafter over their lifetime. But the explicit requirement that withdrawals continue on an annual basis — and the related requirement that the amount withdrawn be based on currently much higher year-end 2007 asset values — is based on Treasury regulations, not the statute, which has a less specific mandate. That means the Secretary of the Treasury has authority to change its regulations to protect seniors from being forced, at this critical time, to sell their investments and “lock in” their losses just after market values have plummeted in an almost unprecedented fashion. Obama and Biden are calling on Treasury to temporarily suspend the required withdrawals for retirees over age 70 1/2. Because retirees often make these required withdrawals late in the year, there is still time to help millions of affected seniors — but only if done promptly. In addition, because lower-income seniors may have no choice but to take withdrawals this year and in 2008, Obama and Biden will exempt any withdrawals made up to the required minimum amount from taxation. This will give seniors the flexibility they deserve — to forgo withdrawals if they choose or to take those withdrawals tax free if they need those resources to pay their bills.

Funds to counteract high heating costs this winter: Obama and Biden are calling for supplementing the recently passed LIHEAP funding to ensure that cold-weather states can cushion the impact of high energy prices for their residents this winter. The Energy Information Administration said that consumers will pay a projected $1,137 to heat their homes from Oct. 1 to March 31 — 15 percent more than last year’s heating outlay during this time. Homeowners that use heating oil rather than natural gas could see increases of 23 percent compared to last year. As part of his $25 billion state fiscal relief package, Obama’s plan will supplement existing LIHEAP funding to help state programs expand to cover more residents while continuing to provide a meaningful benefit.

Provide tax relief for small businesses and start-up companies: Obama and Biden will eliminate all capital gains taxes on start-up and small businesses to encourage innovation and job creation. Obama and Biden will also support small business owners by providing a $500 “Making Work Pay” tax credit to almost every worker in America. Self-employed small business owners pay both the employee and the employer side of the payroll tax, and this measure will reduce the burdens of this double taxation.

Create a national network of public-private business incubators: Obama and Biden will support entrepreneurship and spur job growth by creating a national network of public-private business incubators. Business incubators facilitate the critical work of entrepreneurs in creating start-up companies. Obama and Biden will invest $250 million per year to increase the number and size of incubators in disadvantaged communities throughout the country.

Alan Keyes is twice as black as Barack Obama.

Why didn't Chris Matthews support Keyes for President? There can be only one reason--Matthews is racist!
