Are you sure you want to make that statement? I'd correct it if I were you.

Incorrect. That was an expression of great joy that Obama may not run again.

If you want to talk about meaningless posts, I'm sure I could find a few that you have made.

Your statement implied that most of the Republican party is racist. I would like it if you retracted that statement.

And I could find quite a few of yours that have meanings that are truly scary.

That's a logical fallicy. Read his posts again. He said that most racists are Republicans.

No, he didn't.

"and most of the people who would "never vote for a black man" are the people who make up the base of the Republican Party."

"Racists are the base of the Republican party." The base of the Republican party are racists. That's what it says, and I find it upsetting that it is going unchallenged.

To be fair, I also read "make up the base of the Republican Party" as implying something a bit more sweeping than saying, e.g., "most 'people who would never vote for a black man' wouldn't vote for a Democrat anyway."

But we're starting to slide into "Am not!" "Are too!" territory here.

I know that far, far too many Americans like him only because he is new, young and black. It's the image thing that you are constantly accusing the Republican party of falling into, despite the fact that I can't think of a bigger example of such image-adoration than Obama. That is what scares me, and I know that in 4 or 8 or 12 or however many years, he might actually get elected.

we are.

but when you've got nothing else to offer a conversation -- i have yet to read a word about why it's an "indisputable fact" that Obama brings "absolutely nothing" to a ticket -- this is what happens.

are most Republicans racist? no.

are most Racist republicans? yes.

are most of these racists Republicans what the GOP refers to as it's "base"? yes indeed.

you have Trent Lott.

you have George Allen.

you have Jessie Helms.

you had Strom Thurmond.


and you gave us ads like this (black men are going to fuck white women!):



and this (black men are going to rape white women!):

that's better than Thompson, who only has voice-adoration going on.

(and just wait until we start to hear about the places his penis has been)

And this makes you express great joy of him not running?

How do you know that far too many Americans like him only because he is new, young, and black? What is this "fact" based on?
