Not me! I’m not a bigot! I blame them on homosexual congressmen who have boyfriends that work for Fannie and Freddie.

Shut up. You FUBARED this problem to begin with, white boy.

OK MA FReepers, who is the person running against this fool? This would be a perfect thread to post it, and anyone who can should help him get elected, so the American people can be rid of this buffoon as soon as possible. He has shamed all of us for far too long.

When all else fails, play the race card and watch the idiots in this country fall in line.
