The moment he became beyond parody.

I remember that.

Watching McCain throughout 2008 had its amusing moments, but it truly was some sad stuff as well.

He went from someone I respected to a piece of shit in just a few months. I've been saying it for years: that campaign destroyed John McCain as we knew him.

Maybe leave the singing to the President? Yeah, Obama is a better singer. They should just have a sing off to decide it all.

i'm sure i didn't just read an article that said gingrich was somewhat seriously suggesting illegally claiming the moon as a us state and setting up a space outpost there? did i sleep really late and wake up on april 1st?

i suppose it would be cheaper than invading iran.

Here's what Newt literally was saying as opposed to what hear.

Quote:
“I believe every American of every background has been endowed by their Creator with the right to pursue happiness and if that makes liberals unhappy I’m going to continue to find ways to help poor people learn how to get a job…learn how to get a better job…and learn some day own the job.”



I know, outrageous and racially charged. You want some code-words? How about these:

"help the poor" = provide opportunity for a better life and the dignity of a job.

"get a better job" = advance in a free economy as far as your talent and initiative will take you.

"own the job" = become an evil 1%er and pass on to your grandchildren the promise of the American Dream.

That's what I hear.

You should talk to the Tea Party people in TN about the "founding fathers" and how we're supposed to stop talking about how they owned slaves.

I'm sorry this stuff makes the GOP look so bad.

Most conservatives are not racists; most racists are conservative.

Again: Newt knows exactly what he is doing.

And it thankfully doesn't seem to be working too well.

In regards to that Newt quote, how about the fact that he's patronizing poor people by presuming we just "don't know how" to get work? It couldn't possibly be that we're trying really, really hard, and yet can't get hired for whatever reason regardless of how many qualifications we may or may not have.

No. We're just either too lazy, or too stupid, to figure out how to get a job. And here comes good ol' Newt to "teach" us .

I mean, he is... really.

It's just that phrase. I heard that a lot growing up as a black kid with mostly white friends in the South.
