Hunger and Meaness

I swear, once the election is over I'm going to spend a week or two blogging about nothing but pure folly.

Alas, there's still much work to be done and they'll be even more come January when there will be no 100 day honeymoon for the Obama administration. You think its gotten ugly now, wait until you see the Rethugs banished to the political wilderness. They'll be lashing out like never before.

Crush them, I say.

Its gonna get even uglier, though.

Although it is pretty fucking ugly right now.

As conservative commenter, Festus, stated on my blog last week:
"One racist tool--who somehow wasn't caught on film or audiotape--proves that McCain and Palin are going "into the dark territory of race-baiting and xenophobia."

Need some more proof, Festus? Here ya go:

Bear found dumped at WCU with Obama signs | Asheville Citizen-Times:
"CULLOWHEE – A dead bear was found dumped this morning on the Western Carolina University campus, draped with a pair of Obama campaign signs, university police said."

Check out the outlandishly racist 'food stamp' the SoCal GOP created.

GOP Site Endorses E-mail Smears, Said 'Waterboard Obama' | Threat Level from Wired.com:

"The Sacramento County Republican Party hosted a graphic this week comparing Obama to Osama bin Laden, with the caption 'The only difference between Obama and Osama is BS,'The Sacramento Bee reports. The text of the graphic adds, 'Waterboard Barack Obama.'"

Political signs bring threats in Villa Park -- chicagotribune.com:

"Two supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama found handwritten death threats in their mailboxes Thursday and reported them to Villa Park police."

FayObserver.com - Current Article Page:

"Someone slashed the tires of at least 30 vehicles parked outside the Crown Coliseum on Sunday during a rally for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, authorities said.

“This is an embarrassment to this city and to me as a citizen,” Revis said. “I’ve seen women out here crying and men cussing. This is a crying shame.”"

Racist 'N-Word' Robocall Reported In Pennsylvania:

"'Over in Indiana, PA and Northern Cambria, PA, volunteers fielded complaints of a massive wave of ugly robocalls both paid for by John McCain's campaign and those paid for by third parties. The third party call was interactive, and purported to be from Barack Obama himself. The call starts out reasonably, and then 'Obama' asks what the listener thinks is the most important issue. Whatever the response, 'Obama' then launches into a profane and crazed tirade using 'n***er' and other shock language.'"

ACORN says McCain rhetoric led to racist threats:

"'This is a byproduct of this voter suppression campaign,' ACORN spokesman Brian Kettenring said Monday. He called the threats and smears members of his group have faced 'fearsome and egregious examples of what happens when you pursue the politcs of fear as your electoral strategy.'"

Where, oh, where is all of this coming from?....

The Return of Rove : Rolling Stone:
"John McCain has surrendered his campaign to the same political fearmonger who smeared him out of the race in 2000"

One follow up to yesterday's post.

RNC On New Mexico "Voter Fraud": Never Mind:
"As if you needed any more evidence that the Republican effort to tout voter fraud is less about legitimate claims and more about a political agenda, consider this sequence of events:"

OK, some much needed folly.

Like you haven't thought about trying it.....

Yes. Uglier today. Why are we surprised? Did we somehow think McCain would be any better than other Republican scum candidates? Good work!!!!

I checked on his site, but I couldn't tell if Obama had budgeted for doubling the size of the Secret Service. Sadly, he's gonna need it! Sometimes I am really ashamed of this country, other times I love it. Lately, that dichotomy is present on an almost hourly basis.

Tired slashed at Obama rally in North Carolina, racist yard signs in Maine, and vehicles with Obama signs vandalized (if by vandalized you mean smashed windshields and spraypaint).

Meanwhile in my home state, early voters find their Obama votes changed to McCain on electronic voting machines.

Be careful out there.

D: McCain sold his soul to the devil back in 2000. He's hired all of the people that smeared him back then. You reap what you sow.

T: We all knew that it would be like this with the first black Prez candidate really close to winning. America still has a racism problem and it has been drug out into the light of day.

B: I blogged about WV (are y'all part of the 'real Virginia'?) Obama has hired 5000 lawyers to ref this election. He's not going to allow any theft, though theft will be attempted.

Y'all keep up the good fight, boys! We'll bring this sucker home and have a virtual toast on 11/5!
