Gaffetastic: Obama mixes up his black sitcom references
Michellemalkin.com ^ | 10/29/08 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 10/29/2008 12:47:09 PM PDT by pissant

Oh, my. Can you just imagine if Sarah Palin or John McCain made a crack like this and botched up their pop culture references to famous black comedy shows?

Can you just imagine the high dudgeon from every minority lawmaker? WaPo and NYTimes columnist? Civil rights organization? The cries of RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACISM would shatter the political Richter scale.

Can you just imagine:

This is what happens when a candidates goes off script.

Barack Obama, in Raleigh, N.C., was doing a riff attacking John McCain for supporting the idea of putting some mandatory retirement money into the stock market.

“If Senator McCain is elected, we’ll have another president who wants to privatize part of your Social Security. Could you imagine if you had your Social Security invested in the stock market these last two weeks, these last two months? You wouldn’t need Social Security. You’d be having a — like, what was it, Sanford and Son. `I’m coming Weezie!”

Weezie was on The Jeffersons.

The famous line Obama mixed up was from Redd Foxx’s Fred Sanford character, who faked having a heart attack to draw sympathy from his son, Lamont:

“Oh, this is the big one! You hear that, Elizabeth?! I’m coming to join you, honey!”

(From Mahalo: When caught in a lie or in an embarrassing situation, Fred’s favorite response was to fake a heart attack, which he would refer to as “the big one.” He would grab his chest, look to the sky and speak out to his wife Elizabeth, who passed away sometime before the show began.)

Here’s a clip reel a Redd Foxx fan put together of the famous running gag:

You would think he would have greater knowledge of ‘Sanford & Son’ since he married Aunt Esther.

Obama was in his mid teens when he left his mom to go live in Hawaii with his grandparents and I doubt they watched such “trash”. He also was “too cool” for such programming when he went to college and smoked cigarettes and talked Marxism with his friends that he “carefully chose” at the dorm.

My favorite Fred Sanford insult to Aunt Esther:

‘You so ugly you could use your face to stamp gorilla cookies!’

I wonder if Michelle Malkin has seen the Chocolate News on Comedy Central. It’s truly vicious humor at the expense of “white racists” and republicans.

The skit I saw last night showed a black man trying to vote for Obama and the machine would only accept a vote for McCain so he smashed the machine with a baseball bat.

George Jefferson, under 0bama’s economic plans

would have been severely punished for “movin’ on up”.

(He bought a dry cleaning business.)

And clearly Obama was trying to make a pop culture connection with us poor dumbed down 70’s sitcom watching fool masses.

And failed miserably.

Chocolate News! Can you imagine if there was a show called Vanilla News or Cracker News??? There would be outrage across the nation. I refuse to even watch a minute of it.

But Sanford and Son was a great show. My favorite character was Grady.

Is Obama still saying he’s “green behind the ears?”

Whatever it is, it’s looking less and less like Kryptonite.

Over and above the stupid mistake on the sitcoms, he reveals himself to be a communist once again by belittling the idea of private SS accounts and insisting on the sorry state of affairs we have now.

FDR was the worse President this country ever had and if he hadn't taken advantage of the stock market crash by blaming Hoover, and taking advantage of WWII,he would never have been elected to even two terms. If we are forced to have our money ripped from our checks to pay for SS the money should go into private INTEREST bearing accounts and the money with drawable by the owner of the account anytime they felt like it, without penalty.

SS should actually just be done away with, gradually fazing it out until nothing remains of this communist sharing of the wealth.

The bottom line is that BO doesn’t have a funny bone in his boney little man-child body. He can’t deliver a line. Plus, he’s never watched these shows. He’s been too busy for the last 25 years plotting to destroy America.

George Jefferson understood how a market economy works and he was successful in it. He managed to create, from the ground up, a successful line of dry cleaning businesses in the big city (think crime, zoning ordinances, coding, fees, taxes, unions, and tiny minded letter-of-the-law mid level government workers all nibbling at his endeavors). George Jefferson, a made-up character, has more in common with millions of Americans that Barak Hussein Obama.
