Carville Sums It Up…”If Hillary gave him (Obama) one of her balls, they’d both have two.”

Carville sums up the frustration of the Progressives with Obama, and the Democrat leadership in Congress…

And while he is at it, he needs to have a talk with Michelle about resuscitating that “Inner Negro”.

Black Conservatives Develop a Spine, or The Sno’ Ho’ on Fire!

BS Top - Avlon Sarah Palin

The Sno' Ho' - Drop Dead... Stupid, and Unfit for Office.

Damn! Even black Republicans have had enough of the race baiting tactics of the new further, further, and further than that – right wing of the Republican Party which has sucked virtually all the air out of adult Republicans ability to talk intelligently.

Sarah Palin is the “Twitter” candidate. A format where the number of words are limited, grammar and syntax are irrelevant, and any word over 3 syllables is one syllable too many. Unfortunately it isn’t a venue where IQ and gravitas shine… Even worse, it appears nothing is ever at risk of getting lost in the tweet in the Sno’ Ho’s case.

You have to ask, what sort of brain-fart afflicted the Sno’ Ho’ to even want to chime in on the firestorm lit by Dr. Laura’s incendiary and racist comments – especially in view that Dr. Laura has utilized the same verbal hacksaw on the Sno’ Ho’s own family.

I’m stunned – couldn’t the Republican Party find one competent female with adult children to run for Vice President with McCain?   I realize his advisors probably didn’t want a “mature” woman, as the Democrats keep harping on his age.  But really, what kind of role model is a woman whose fifth child was recently born with a serious issue, Down Syndrome, and then goes back to the job of Governor within days of the birth?

Black Republicans tell John Avlon that Sarah Palin’s tweet in defense of Dr. Laura was ridiculous and indefensible—and that she may be “no longer fit to lead.”

Sarah Palin’s post-VP nominee career has so far benefitted from bomb-throwing. The process follows a tight script—a crude, semi-calculated comment is shot into the middle of a political debate via Facebook or Twitter. It gains national attention. Liberals are outraged. Conservatives rush to her defense. Sarah Palin dominates a news cycle and becomes more beloved by her base.

But by unnecessarily rushing to the defense of Dr. Laura Schlessinger—after she dropped the N-bomb 11 times and told the caller “don’t marry outside of your race”—Sarah Palin might finally have gone too far and picked a fight she cannot win.

Michel Faulkner, the former NFL player and Harlem preacher challenging Charlie Rangel for a House seat -
“Why Sarah Palin feels she needs to join in to Dr. Laura’s personal meltdown is beyond me. She’s sounding like she just likes to hear her own voice—and the voice that she has is no longer credible. It says that a leading voice among conservatives has joined the ranks of the entertainers—trying to shock us each day with more and more outlandish commentary. And at that moment that person is no longer fit to lead.”
“The constitutional stuff she’s saying doesn’t even make any sense,” Faulkner said. “She doesn’t know what real shackles are… But ‘don’t retreat, reload?’ Lady, are you kidding me? That is scary language in anyone’s terminology. Sarah Palin scares me.”

Nationally syndicated conservative columnist Deroy Murdock took an even stronger line -

Sarah Palin’s tweets resemble something scribbled by a ninth-grade cheerleader. Is it asking too much for a reputed American political leader to communicate in complete sentences? Palin’s gravitas gap is growing into the Gravitas Canyon,” said the media fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace at Stanford University. “Even worse, she deploys her vacuity to defend an acerbic talk-show host who just detonated herself by tossing around the word ‘nigger’ on the air 11 times, as if it were a volleyball. The American right can do better than this. And it must.

Joe Hicks recently launched a first-of-its-kind program called Minority Report on PJTV.com, from the perspective that “conservative blacks and other minority conservatives are routinely vilified by leftists and liberals as well as often marginalized by the right.” But this California-based Marxist-turned-conservative-convert, who’s a Tea Party-favorite, isn’t buying the party line when it comes to Palin’s Dr. Laura defense.

“When I first heard this stuff, what came across was an extremely lame white chick trying to school this other woman about the N-word. … So I’m certainly not one to try and defend Dr. Laura. She has a history of being a negative and nasty persona. But Sarah Palin’s comments? Well, this is confusing stuff coming out of a woman who would have been the vice president if McCain had won. … Palin seems to be as equally detached from the real world where people operate and where race is a really volatile topic.”

“First Amendment rights? Of course. But [Dr. Laura] wasn’t fired—she decided to drop her show. So I’m not exactly understanding what Sarah Palin’s understanding of the Constitution is here. And it isn’t completely out of character, which is very unfortunate. She keeps dropping this bizarre stuff,” Hicks said. “It says this woman really has no larger vision of what she is trying to do in a political sense—there’s a pretty narrow intellect at work here … Attempting to defend the indefensible is just kind of insulting.”

Timothy Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, the organization that helped recruit a record 32 African-American Republican congressional candidates this year -

“If she chooses to run for president in 2012, she is going to have to answer to black Republicans.”

The Sno’ Ho’ Gets One Right…And The Caribou Palm Pilot Returns

The Sno’ Ho’ had better be careful of what she wishes for. Obama ever does decide to evince those “cajones”…

Might be a whole bunch of unemployed right wing talking buffoons getting their pink slips from an informed public.

Palin: Obama Has No ‘Cojones’

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is able to take on illegal immigration because she has the “cojones” that President Obama “does not have,” Sarah Palin said yesterday on Fox News Sunday. The former Alaska governor also ripped Obama for suing to block the new Arizona immigration law without addressing “sanctuary cities,” zones where local police are not allowed to ask people about their immigration status.

The Caribou Palm Pilot makes a reappearance -

Anyway, softball interview without asking any tough questions – which is pretty much what you would expect on Faux News pushing one of their candidates.

Time For Obama to Let Loose His “Inner Negro”!

Now I know Presidnet Obama was raised by white folks…

But Dayam!

If He "Ain't got no" Thug - He needs to find some!

Time for the boy to start channeling some of that Inner Negro, and it’s -

Time for Obama to go ‘gangsta’ on GOP

Civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer made famous the phrase, “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.”

For me, I’m sick and tired of Democrats having power and being unwilling to use it. I’ve always respected Republicans when they had power because they were willing to use it and maybe apologize later.

Today, President Obama walked into the White House briefing room and took some questions, and one of them revolved around recess appointments.

He has watched Republicans block many of his appointments, and now he says he made it clear to them that he will “consider” making some when the U.S. Senate goes into recess.

“One senator, as you all are aware, had put a hold on every single nominee that we had put forward due to a dispute over a couple of earmarks in his state,” President Obama said.

“In our meeting, I asked the congressional leadership to put a stop to these holds in which nominees for critical jobs are denied a vote for months. Surely we can set aside partisanship and do what’s traditionally been done to confirm these nominations.

If the Senate does not act — and I made this very clear — if the Senate does not act to confirm these nominees, I will consider making several recess appointments during the upcoming recess, because we can’t afford to allow politics to stand in the way of a well-functioning government.”

This is where the president needs to show his toughness and just do it. Forget the threats. The actions of Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Alabama, and other Republican obstructionists will continue if President Obama allows them to run roughshod over him. When you’re the top dog, you do what you have to do to govern. Allowing Republican senators to continue to deny your appointments is nonsense.

If all of them choose to support a filibuster, then you take it to the American people and show the obstructionists for what they are. You get your grass-roots movement fired up to stand up and do something. The political right used its base to go after Democrats who blocked appointments to the federal bench and other positions. So why not be just as aggressive?

If there are members of your own party who stand in the way, such as Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Nebraska, then you also blast them and make them pay for acting so foolishly.

This president got rolled by the Senate over health care. His team made some boneheaded mistakes, and now they are paying for them. Continuing to play footsie with opponents will only get him into more trouble. He should set a deadline to have his folks confirmed. If not, appoint them all during the recess and go on about your business.

Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price

Thank You, Roland Martin!

Obama to Yellowcrats – “Govern”

One of the most frustrating things about the Dem majority in Congress is their continued tendency to chicken out each and every time the Republicans raise and objection or the Right-wing noise machine cranks up the static.

Democrats have failed over the last year by waffling, with predictable electoral results.

To those Democrats who have demonstated the lack of cajones…

Grow a pair!

On Obama and the Politics of Failure

I think the Brown win is finally the catharsis which gets the Obama Administration out of the bipartisan stupidity. Going in to the 2008 election, pragmatic analysts knew it was going to take a ruthless SOB to turn this country around and clean up the mess made by the Bushshits and conservatives. The concern with Obama was that he was far too committed to having a beer across the table – and not rolling out the guillotine and lopping off the appropriate heads.

The Plan going forward

The Mr. Nice Guy approach has failed, in no small part because his opponents are under no such delusions.

Early in the Obama Administration there was an agreement that Dems wouldn’t use their majority power, as Republicans had – to go after the miscreants in the opposing Party and previous Administration. That is why you don’t see the Dick, or the rest of the right-wing mafia and war profiteers in jail. That “mercy syndrome” was extended to the banks and Wall Street as the full depth of depravity under the Bushshit resulted in an economic meltdown.

Since fixing the economy isn’t something that can be done within the election cycle, the oldest political maxim since Egyptian times is to put some blood on the floor so the populace can see their leaders are committed to “justice”. It is way past time for Obama to do this, and in not doing it he has screwed his Party – perhaps irreparably for the next cycle.

Over the next 90 days, expect the banks who created this pain, and are still profiting – to begin to feel a whole bunch of pain.

President Obama looks to tap populist anger

Exclusive: President Obama: We Lost Touch with American People Last Year

Proposal Set to Curb Bank Giants

Expect that the Administration will turn the dogs loose on the Republicans. It is way past time for these criminal conservative scum to meet their just desserts.  Face it, trying to be accommodating to these bastards has only resulted in them spitting in Obama’s face. There simply is no accommodation that can be made with rabid dogs.

Rare Sighting! A Democrat With Cajones

Hat Tip to Real Clear Politics for this one. RCP commentary tends to lean disproportionally to the right, but unlike a true conservative site they also publish opinions from the left. As such, there are some real gems there like this one from -

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL):

“I apologize to the dead and their families that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America. I yield the rest of my time.”


Rep Grayson is using the 47,000 a year number developed by Harvard researchers which is limited to people WITHOUT any health care. That number doesn’t take into account the tens of thousands who die because of LIMITED Health Care, SUBSTANDARD health care, or lack of PREVENTATIVE care…

It also doesn’t include how many African Americans die each year because of racial differentials in care within the current system.

When you start looking at Infant Mortality rates, which seem to be intentionally jumbled such as to prevent coming up with real bottom line numbers (unlike crime statistics), you start seeing that something between 2 and 4% of all black babies in some areas of this country die due to inadequate pre- and post natal care before their first year of life…

It looks a lot like Genocide.
