Maureen Dowd Takes Long Walk Off Short Pier .. of her Sanity
Her latest Op-Ed. I do believe she didn’t plagiarize this time and all the thoughts (term used loosely) are actually her own, pathetically.
Surrounded by middle-aged white guys — a sepia snapshot of the days when such pols ran Washington like their own men’s club — Joe Wilson yelled “You lie!” at a president who didn’t.
But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in the air: You lie, boy!
Why? Oh, because Wilson is a dude from South Carolina. And apparently South Carolina, where I live by the way, is teeming with Racists. Actually, Maureen Dowd would have you believe we are *all* racists here.
Wilson clearly did not like being lectured and even rebuked by the brainy black president presiding over the majestic chamber.
Brainy? I have yet to see any evidence of that. I don’t really find the chamber all that “majestic” either. You see, I don’t deify the Government, nor do I believe it’s members are made up of Royalty.
She goes on to say that somehow Senator DeMint’s wishing to upend Presiden’t Obama’s health care plan and Governor Sanford’s attempt to refuse part of the stimulus money, parts that would end up costing our State greatly which we can ill afford, are due to the fact they must be good ol’ Southern boys who can’t take having a black man as President.
Oh, but her evidence *is* strong, isn’t it?
“A good many people in South Carolina really reject the notion that we’re part of the union,” said Don Fowler, the former Democratic Party chief who teaches politics at the University of South Carolina. He observed that when slavery was destroyed by outside forces and segregation was undone by civil rights leaders and Congress, it bred xenophobia.
“We have a lot of people who really think that the world’s against us,” Fowler said, “so when things don’t happen the way we like them to, we blame outsiders.” He said a state legislator not long ago tried to pass a bill to nullify any federal legislation with which South Carolinians didn’t agree. Shades of John C. Calhoun!
Oh, well, THAT’S different. The Democratic Party Chief says it’s so! We don’t LOVE our Country, no, no… we reject it! Y’all are Outsiders! And we are a bunch of xenophobic racists, obvy. (though we of course don’t even know what the word xenophobic means, right Maureen?) It’s funny, that – once again, the people constantly hurling the “Racist!” slur at others seem to be the people whom only see color. What is THAT called, hmmm, Maureen?
Well aren’t you just precious, honey. Bless your heart.
(I understand that you are oh-so-esoteric and brilliant, you may not understand simple Southern speak. So, let me be clear (heh)… that isn’t racist, Maureen. But it does mean that you are an imbecilic ass)
