Barry O plays the race card, nurses his grudges [Karl]

The general election is in November, but for Barack Obama Barry O, it is not too soon to start dealing the race card:

They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?

He made similar comments to his fatcat San Francisco donors in conjunction with his claim that people in small-towns in flyover country are bitter and cling to their God and their Guns for economic reasons.

One might have hoped that locking down the delegates necessary to secure the Democratic presidential nomination might have resulted in some personal growth.  Instead, he is still nursing a grudge over all of the slights he thinks he received from Hillary Clinton and her supporters and remaking the Presidential seal in his campaign’s image, while thinking everyone is too stupid to notice.

But instead of stepping up to the gravity of his own historic achievement, it appears that Obama Barry O is going to stick with his gameplan of making any mention of his threadbare resume (and equally threadbare public accomplishments) or even his name grist for his mill of racial grievance.

Make no mistake: the man who admits he looks like Urkel is sounding about as post-racial as the Rev. Al Sharpton.  Or about as post-racial as someone who spent the last 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Michael Pfleger.  Someone with that background ought to have some humility when it comes to dealing the race card, but he has chosen it as his opening gambit.  If John McCain and the GOP allows someone who increasingly sounds like someone struggling to suppress his own prejudice to frame the general election in this manner, they will deserve to lose the election even more than they already do.

(h/t Memeorandum.)

Update: I await Barry’s denunciation of Baldilocks:

Most people couldn’t care less about your name and your color, Senator Obama. They fear being lead by you because you have no substantive legislative record, you’re a chronic liar and, after explicitly stating that you choose your friends carefully, you have repeatedly and systematically made friends with people who hate this country.

Ouch.  But if Barry keeps it up, what voters will notice that his skin is as thin as his record.

Update x2: Insta-lanche!

  1. Everyone knew this was coming, just like the OJ Trial. The defense attorneys all swore that they wouldn’t play the race card, then the next day started accusing the cops of bigotry. The problem is, winning over lots of skeptical voters by being a parody of the aggrieved black man he’s been so careful to avoid being associated with so far is not exactly a great strategy. The press and the Democratic Party leadership will be doing enough of it already; any question, any criticism, any disagreement with the anointed one will result in cries of racism. It’s more predictable than a Hillary Cackle© at a tough question.

  2. Even teh NPR is disgusted at Baracky’s inept attempt to stage his own racial crucifixion. That’s got to be pretty embarrassing.

  3. NPR obvs hasn’t gotten the memo to praise O!’s ruthlessness yet.

    Seriously, even O! backers might want to ask themselves whether Johnnie Cochran would have done as well with a jury from Brentwood as one from South Central. Because O! does not get to pick his jury.

  4. So McCain campaign plays tape of BarryO saying ‘they are going to try to make you afraid of me…etc’ with McCain saying, ‘Who me? What’s this guy talking about?’ and the BarryO campaign comes back saying ‘SEE! what did we tell you?’

  5. So he spent 20 years in Chicago trying to learn how to be black, and now he doesn’t want us to notice?

  6. I like that NPR uses the word ‘templates’ in it’s web addresses.

  9. Sdferr, hah! Good eye.

  10. And did KK mention he’s black?

  11. I have a dream! book deal!

  12. Ohnoes. The Baracky, he is becoming a loser magnet. He better reverse polarity quick.

  13. - Wait! How will this sort of victimhood whining square with the campaign PR launch this past week, of the “New and improved” Familyvalues-Spiritialiness version of the O! man.

    - Or is he just trying to say something like “For the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my racist godbothering country”. And what about Michele? Does this leave her yet again on the wrong side of things with her makeover?

    - This guy doesn’t need a cabinate older than dirt. He needs a keeper.

  14. And did KK mention he’s black?

    Didn’t have to, Barry had already let the cat out of the bag.

  15. Did thor mention he is a lying, racist hack?

  16. O! is Black? Fuck… and here I thought he was a tan White Guy. Guess I’ll be voting for McCain then. Damn, and I was sooo looking forward to a White Marxist in the Oval Office.

  17. #15
    He was gonna mention it in dec.

  18. ‘feets…O! and Hagel? But that would balance

  19. Ooh. Fix your thin skin thing cause that’s a lot cogent and quippy.

  20. #16

    - I think hes more like “white chocolate”. (foot of California street in SF, on the pier. 7 bucks a lb.)

  21. quip fixed.

  22. serr8d, very free associative of me but when I saw that p-shop it just made me realize that there’s something very vaudevillian about this McCain person. Like when he’s paired with someone you almost can hear the opening strains of the song and dance number they were up all night rehearsing.

    Probably just me.

  23. Nursing ‘em, eh? Didn’t know he had moobs. Apart from Christopher Warren and those guys.

  24. KK’s skin is thinner than a Obamawaffle.

  25. Lets dance, you can do a little two-step
    I’ll go anywhere that you step to, cause now I’m following you.

    Encore, once again around the dance floor
    Nuance is in the picture too, cause now I’m following you.

  26. thor,

    I’m not trying to get my finger on the nuclear button,which makes the thickness of my skin far less important. But my standard response to you has little to do with the thickness of my skin and much to do with my rejection of O! and his sycophants attempting to mau-mau their opposition into silence, when it is O! who has acted more racially than any of his political opponents by worshipping in the Hate Church for two decades.

  27. I’m draggin’ KK’s goat onto a plastic tarp; gimme that knife, and stand back.

  28. hf,

    You need to cut back on your Madge intake. Really.

  29. I normally leave out megalomaniac when slapping thor around, because it’s pretty much always on display. As opposed to any attempt to deal with substance. Note how common these traits are among Obamatons.

  30. - Today chameleon-man is running around the country “reaching out to evangelicals”, so apparently its Saturday. Each day of the week has a different “theme”. Now if the Obama people could just outlaw the 24 hour news cycle and high speed communications, he’d be all set.

    - The nutroots will just have to suck it up for a few days until he gets back on message.

  31. Obama/Hagel versus McCain/Clinton or Leiberman? Do we have to wait for one of these idiots to get elected before we start the impeachment proceedings? Can we just throw them all out now and take a mulligan or some such?

  32. Hah. It’s just also there is something of the Dick Tracy about this McCain is all. Maybe it’s just he invokes the era.

  33. Consider yourselves all to be racists. I denounce and condemn you.

  34. BMoe – You only get a mulligan off the 1st tee, and real men do not need one.

  35. - Make sure your weinie is pointed toward mecca thor, before you do the deed, otherwise Allah will not be pleased.

    - Also It might be wise to take your dick out of the goat before you dispatch it.

  36. Presumably, O! would be The Blank.

  37. And did KK mention thor’s a megalomaniacal whitey?

    It’s all black and whitey, eh KK.

  38. Charging people who slightly oppose you with ‘racism’ isn’t a Change, and is no way to win them over. It is a very good way to have them quietly decide they will oppose you no matter what, thinking that you are a jackass for raising that blanket accusation. And it may shove undecideds away from you because some people will have their hackles raised by that suggestion. So much for the ‘post-racial candidate’.

  39. Charging people who slightly oppose you with ‘racism’ isn’t a Change, and is no way to win them over.

    Never underestimate the power of insecure non-racists wanting to prove that they are non-racists by embracing race-baiters and hucksters.

    After all, if you can achieve self-affirmation simply by pulling a lever, well, how easy is that…?

  40. I cannot imagine who Jeff is thinking of with that comment. Someone in this very thread, perhaps.


  41. Comment by Big Bang Hunter (pumping you up) on 6/21 @ 10:53 am #

    - Make sure your weinie is pointed toward mecca thor, before you do the deed, otherwise Allah will not be pleased.

    - Also It might be wise to take your dick out of the goat before you dispatch it.

    Your doggerel tongue speaks of my magic cock within the frame of goats? What are you a Greek revolutionary?

    Did KK mention I never wash my loins before you suckleforth! You’re sicker than blood scraps.

  42. Right on cue.

  43. Call it cue-less affirmative-affirmation henceforth.

  44. Thor, you get to drinking earlier in the day than most anyone I know…

    Related to comments #39 and #40,
    I have been thinking that the perfect bumper sticker for this campaign would read:

    Another Guilty White Voter for Obama!

  45. - “Hey Joe….This is Sammy on floor #14….”

    - “Huh…Oh yeh….We got another howler up here….you remember….that asshole calls himself thor or something…Thinks hes a greek god…yeh that one….crazu=ier than a junk yard rat…

    - “Anyway…..we’re going to need a pail and a mop, and send up a 1000 cc syringe of Thorazine…Yeh…That strong….Hes swinging from the overhead screening and screaming something about goat fucking for Allah…..must be something in his water…

  46. thor dropped an “l.”

  47. again, back to my dominant theme.
    what u often reguard as bugs Karl, cher, i reguard as features.
    sure, O! screws up, hes only human.
    but his resilience pegs right off the scale.
    O! is the pinnacle of political cultural evolution.
    how can i not admire him?
    he is the ultimate validation of my core beliefs in evolutionary theory of culture.
    hes the top of the foodchain, perfectly evolved for his place in history.
    like a great white is a perfectly evolutionarily engineered eating machine, O! is engineered for attracting votes in a multifactorial environment.

  48. your future may be the Hate Church, but that’s no more evolutionary than myopia.

  49. Never underestimate the power of insecure non-racists wanting to prove that they are non-racists by embracing race-baiters and hucksters.

    After all, if you can achieve self-affirmation simply by pulling a lever, well, how easy is that…?

    Tell that to Tom Bradley or Doug Wilder!

  50. Always happy to be provoked and always happy to piss on my own people, a good revolutionary and helluva goat chopper I am. thor, King of all pompous non-sequiturs that sometimes rhyme and self-less thrower of voice, Praise he.

    Bent knee, KK, I’m talking to you.

  51. O! is the pinnacle of political cultural evolution.

    That’s just frightening. I mean, to think there’s no place to go but down.

    O! is the pinnacle of soundbite politics and image management. But you are mistaken if you think Americans won’t at some point reject that model.

    At least, I hope you are.

    And even if you’re not, I’d replace pinnacle with “nadir” and suggest to you that what has actually happened in a devolving of political culture.

  52. sure, O! screws up, hes only human.
    but his resilience pegs right off the scale.

    - Resilincy is great if you’re a standup comedian nishi. Helps you deal with a hostile audience if you’re jokes aren’t going over too well.

    - Consistent, predictable flip-flopping in politics – not so much.

  53. Jeff,

    All true, but I would add that it’s a model in which the top of the chain is a prettier version of Deval Patrick who can read the TelePrompTer better. It would be proof of David Axelrod as the Intelligent Designer.

  54. He’s not what you think he is, Nishi.

    As pooh might say, He always seems bigger because of his bounces

  55. he is the ultimate validation of my core beliefs in evolutionary theory of culture.

    Please, do you have any commingled theories and studies to share. I didn’t sleep too well last night.

  56. “….and the wonderfulest thing about tiggers is, I’m the only one!”

    - And so the torch of tiggery is passed to O!

  57. - Knowing the obsessive nature of the SecProgg mind when it comes to all things racist, I can easily imagine them mentally substituting a pair of “n”‘s in my last post, in a naughty, self-hating, white guilt way, and then giggling into their hand.

  58. If someone would just write a science fiction book about Huey Long or Bobby Kennedy, nishi might get a clue how silly she is.

  59. I find politics to to be a relay race to pander to the laziest elements in society. I also find politicians to be merely parasitic whores in search of ways to redistribute and regulate the productivity of others.

    Therefore, I must agree with Nishi that Obama is indeed the pinnacle of political cultural evolution. She has blundered onto the truth in spite of herself. Something about a stopped clock …

  60. BMoe – You only get a mulligan off the 1st tee…

    You haven’t seen me play. Think Max Patkin with a golf club.

  61. about as post-racial as someone who spent the last 20 years under the spiritual tutelage of the race-baiting Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Fr. Michael Pfleger.

    I can’t help but wonder, did Obama actually learn anything from the TUCC crowd, or was he just there seeking permission for taking the low road.

  62. Never underestimate the power of insecure non-racists wanting to prove that they are non-racists by embracing race-baiters and hucksters.

    The sublime beauty of our voting process is that these people can go into the booth, “pull the lever” for McCain, and come out proclaiming their steadfast allegiance to HOPE! and CHANGE!–and their little sec-prog buddies will be none the wiser.

  63. Then they will line up to have their liberal fascist card stamped, as Nishi weeps in her Red Bull.

  64. “card”/cards

  65. Oh, that may happen, Jeff, but I think those who are willing to do that are already supporters. Those who are on the fence may go any which way, those who are already opponents are likely to be hardened into opposition when some could be won over. And many of those fence sitters may be more insulted than shamed.

    I could be wrong, of course; but for me, accusing me of one of the most serious social crimes that we have, is enough to harden my opposition and really get me going. Some may flee from that, supporting loudly to give a cover, true. But once in the voting booth, well revenge may be taken as it is anonymous.

    I think Karl could show the polling data – ‘Bradley effect’ I think it is called, about that. Never insult the electorate you need to win. Sort of like never insult the judge in open court – you may not see a reaction, but it may manifest itself in a close call.

  66. If someone would just write a science fiction book about Huey Long or Bobby Kennedy, nishi might get a clue how silly she is.

    Why not an offspring of both? After all, scifi is a prediction of the future, or something like that! I think I read that somewhere!

  67. Oh good! matoko pops up with social Darwinism. Like that has worked out well in the past…

    Take up the White Man’s burden–
    Send forth the best ye breed–

    Thought we were done with that nonsense.

  68. #54 Sarah W – amazing the scientist is taken in by the smoke and mirrors of politics.

  69. Thought we were done with that nonsense.

    We’re all just “lazy lumps of brickdust”.

  70. He’s black? Really?

    I did not know that.

  71. Don’t call him black else he’ll get angry.

  72. Rikki Tikki Nishi.

  73. Why play a race card this week? It’s true that he has a whole deck but what does whining buy him now, besides another pound of disdain? It’s nineteen weeks to the election, not as if he needs to buy a news cycle as yet.

    Could it be that there’s some more Chicago stink in the wind and Obama thinks a Sharpton ploy is needed to divert attention? The release of that Rezko letter to the judge seemed like a bit of innoculation – is Tony warbling out some arias for Fitz that will make the news? Maybe some pictures of Obama in Vegas standing next to Tony at the cashiers window in a casino have turned up?

  74. Don’t call him black else he’ll get angry.

    And you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

  75. “And you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry.

    - Yeh, because he may not be Black, but his wife is.

  76. As you said this was expected and it will get worse as we go. Obama has lied so many times it is hard to keep track and he has not met a promise he will not break at the first politically expedient moment a new type of politician? The change candidate? yeah RIIIIGHT! Can you say old style Chicago machine politician? As much as I despise MCcain he does have a few good attributes one of them being he keeps his word, I gotta tell yah the thought of pulling the lever for MCcain is getting easier and easier.

  77. Obama must walk the land, spreading HOPE and CHANGE where he goes.

    Until he can tame the beast within…………

  78. Why play a race card this week? It’s true that he has a whole deck but what does whining buy him now, besides another pound of disdain? It’s nineteen weeks to the election, not as if he needs to buy a news cycle as yet.

    Expect this garbage once a month, or whenever the news cycle goes off the O!MESSAGE™. It’s more like a trump card used when the news meidia doesn’t suit his needs.

  79. Please Cowboy! Let us not insult the bravest mongoose ever! :)

  80. Riki Tiki Tavi was one of my favorites, Cowboy. It had been a long time since I thought of that show.

    Nishit is a fucking imbecile, in case you forgot.

    And all y’all are racists.

  81. “And did i mention he’s black?”

    The fact that he’s brown colored is the only noteworthy thing about the slobbering dipshit.

  82. JD, Nishidiot is anti-twodigit. How does this reconcile with being an imbecile? Oh yeah, I forgot, she’s a transhumanist as well! Look out Steve Austin, the six million dollar imbecile is coming!

  83. I can’t help but wonder, did Obama actually learn anything from the TUCC crowd…

    He learned how to be black culturally, he needed tutoring to fit in.

  84. McCain, the RNC, or the Republican 527s need a hard-hitting set of ads describing specifically (by video clip or print clip) where he said one thing and then did another. Don’t minimize it with the nonsense term “flip-flop.” Rather, depending on the issue, cast it as a complete lack of character (Wright, Pfleger, campaign finance); historical stupidity (too many foreign policy statements); hard left liberalism that threaten national security (FISA, Gitmo hearings). It’s only mid-June, and I’m omitting some.

    And if the 527s want an ad to rival Willie Horton, put up a mugshot of a prominent Gitmo detainee, pair him with a Johnnie Cochran-type lawyer in a federal court habeas corpus proceeding lecturing the judge, “If the turban don’t fit, you must acquit.”

  85. He learned how to be black culturally, he needed tutoring to fit in.

    Didn’t Columbia University have a black/hispanic/women or some other permanent victim studies program in the eighies.

  87. Nishidiot is anti-twodigit. How does this reconcile with being an imbecile?

    I would agree she can’t be an imbecile. Down in one-digit territory are the sub-idiots, otherwise known as potted plants.

    Or sandwiches.

  89. There was this instalanche thing too I noticed.

  90. I had a sandwich for lunch McGehee that was positively brilliant. I ate it quickly, but it was brilliant nonetheless.

    I just went and read the drivel from Baracky again. How in the fuck can the assclowns on the Left say that stuff about 527′s and special interest groups with a straight face? And, SHOCKA, the MSM never fucking calls them on their overt lies. And make no mistake, this is an overt lie. TO claim that the Republicans are more beholden to 527′s and special interest flies in the face of reality. But, it should not longer surprise anyone.

    I know, I am a racist. I denounce myself. Fuckers.

  91. Nishi’s forgotten that sometimes when the derivative is zero, you’re not necessarily at the global maximum.

  92. If sandwiches were smart, they wouldn’t be so convenient and (usually) tasty. Those traits can’t be good for their survival as a species.

  93. …unless we humans domesticate them, like cows and SUVs.

    I liked Rikki Tikki Tavi too–I was just playing on the Kipling “white man’s burden” thing.

    It is possible, however, that nishi’s parents are idiot mongeese and wanted to have baby nishi participate fully in dumbass culture, so they had her genetically stupidified while she was a tiny mongosling fetus.

    Does it matter?

  97. And did I mention he’s black?

    Right on! For God’s sake, look at the bright side!

  98. If sandwiches were smart, they wouldn’t be so convenient and (usually) tasty. Those traits can’t be good for their survival as a species.

    I denounce you for being homophobic. Clearly this is a code-word analogy for teh ghey buttsecks and their inability to procreate together, and the fact that it would lead to an extinction of the species. Consider yourself condemned.

  99. HF,

    Chuck fucking Hagel?

    BWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

  100. Cowboy: , so they had her genetically stupidified while she was a tiny mongosling fetus.

    However, due to an unfortunate typo, they used goose DNA rather than mongoose.

    Slart: forgotten that sometimes when the derivative is zero, you’re not necessarily at the global maximum.

    While we’re getting all math-geeky, I suspect that the special bell curve that applies to Nishi has been reflected about the y axis.

  101. I saw that Hagel thing on CNN this morning (don’t ask) and had Grape Nuts attempt to fly out of my nose. Painful, I tell you. Painful. Like nasal kidney stones.

  102. I don’t know. Sammiches may get eaten , but they use getting eaten to make you make more of them.

  103. It’s like we are pod people for the sammiches

  104. Hmmm. Kind of like a mental version of the seeds-in-tasty-fruit strategy. Diabolically brilliant, if true.

    In which case sandwiches clearly do not deserve to be mentioned in the same category as the nishtoon. They’re obviously much more intelligent.

    And maybe even designed that way.

  105. I thought sandwiches were all about the schmear, y’know like Baracky.

  106. happyfeet:

    Even teh NPR is disgusted at Baracky’s inept attempt to stage his own racial crucifixion. That’s got to be pretty embarrassing.

    I heard that too. It’s refreshing to catch ‘em being good, isn’t it?

  107. NPR also lately had a bit on couterintuitive miles-per-gallon math misperceptions that was pretty good.
    The NPR guy seemed shaken to the core.

  108. I made the boys grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.

    Typical white grandma I am.

    I throw myself under the bus.

  109. I wonder when Barry will start referring to all the [left-generated] assassination p0rn, and blaming it on Republikkkans, too.

  110. Obama are smart;
    Obama is started good pre-emptive war against oppositon;
    Good boy Obama

  111. sashal comes out for pre-emptive war
    and I need a new irony-meter.

  112. ‘Sounds more like Obama done started a war against hisself.

  113. And if he wasn’t black, he would still be a Chicago pol hustling for votes for Alderman from dead people.

  114. I once thought about hating Ted Bundy, but then I found out he wasn’t black.

    Oh well. Maybe next time.

  115. You can still hate Ted Bundy.

    He couldn’t make a decent tuna sandwich to save his life.

    Literally. He woulda got a reprieve from the governor, but…

  116. hey sashel

    The only one playing the race card here is Barry himself. All the “race baiting” you’ve been seeing has come directly from his fellow Dems.

    Live by the identity politiking …

    Geraldine was right, just impolite to speak it outloud.

  117. I mean who mixes in horseradish with the fish?

    Maybe it would’ve gone over in Pennsylvania or Michigan, but not in Florida.

  118. hey , darleen,
    Obama is smart , Obama is starting pre-emtive war,

  119. Karl,
    hopefully we will get away without collateral damage

  120. It is really not a pre-emptive war, since there is absolutely no evidence at all, except in their minds, that McCain would ever try to scare people by pointing out he has a funny middle name and is black. The only people that have talked about that are Dems, and pretty much just the Baracky campaign. It is kind of like the Kerry being a Vietnam vet and all.

  121. ummmmmm…the more self-hating victims the better…ummmmmmm..burp..

  122. Oh. Here.

    I second the solid white albacore, just a superior product to the mushy stuff. I like it in oil as opposed to water as well.

    I use one can, a dollop of real mayo, two or three squeezes of a good brown mustard, a scoop of dill relish and a good spoonful of extra hot horseradish. Mix, put on any bread but a toasted bagel is super, and enjoy.

    All ingredients can be kept easily at work and you don’t have to chop or cook anything. I’m a big fan. And leaving out the horseradish really isn’t an option.”

    I will try this I think.

  123. I’m telling ya, it’s the schmear.

  124. And I just don’t under stand the sniggering of O! and his audience at the “and he’s black you know” line.

    Just who in this country is without a tv or a newspaper and hasn’t witnessed the months of America’s Historical Candidate Tour? Sheesh, it’s like telling people Oprah is black would be some sort of revelation.

  125. Obama being the nominee, he can’t really be black! We been OBamboozalled!

  126. Happyfeet, either your link slashdotted that poor freak’s site, or the good-taste police have already taken him away.

    Anyway, what Bundy did was to mix in nothing but horseradish.

  127. And in Florida, tuna salad has to be about 98% mayonnaise.

    That’s why I haven’t had a tuna sandwich since moving to Georgia (I hate mayonnaise). Florida may be 200 miles away, but that’s still too close.

  128. Oh. Thanks. It was from this thread at Single Guy Cook.

  129. #108
    “I made the boys grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.”

    With soup I hope. Have to dunk the crusts.

  130. No sandwich is complete, or proper, without bacon. Just sayin’

  131. #122, happfeet,

    Thanks for the recipe.

    Myself I like to mix tuna salad and egg salad, 50/50 on whole wheat with lettuce and maybe a slice of cheese.

  132. Where did my “y” go?

  133. #129 geoff

    too hot for soup today, lots of cold munchies on the side – sliced apples, sugar snap peas, and tall glasses of ice cold milk.

    then a snack later of peanut butter on Honey graham crackers

  134. And bacon, geoffb. Loads of hot greasy bacon.

  135. #130 JD

    No sandwich is complete, or proper, without bacon. Just sayin’

    that’s my husband’s line … it must be a man thing I wouldn’t understand.

    So I remember to keep bacon in the frig at all times.

  136. It is not a man thing, Darleen. It is a human thing. I cannot think of anything that is not improved with bacon. Chocolate chip cookie dough wrapped in bacon. Peanut butter and bacon sammies. Bacon wrapped around a burger on the grill. Bacon wrapped around a hunk of pancetta. Bacon and milk. Bacon flavored ice cream. Plain bacon by the pound.

  137. Not sure about bacon on tuna but BLTs are a gift from god. I can’t wait till the good fresh homegrown tomatoes hit the farmers market.

  138. geoffb – You are going about it wrong then. Plus, it is not bacon on tuna, but tuna on the multiple thick-cut slices of bacon. And for what it is worth, I do not work for the American Pork Producers Association, though I do admire their work.

  139. Now I’m hungry for bacon. To the kitchen…

  140. I luvs me my BLT, but it is even better with avocado.

  141. I have a pound of half cooked bacon in the fridge that will magically disappear tonight.

  142. - Go for it JD. I can hear your arteries slamming shut from here, but some things are just too good to say no.

  143. BBH – I am trying to ration them, so I can enjoy it over the course of the evening. However, that strategy has proven to be as effective as when I tried to quit drinking by reducing the number of beers I drank each night. Somehow, it never quite worked.

  144. - Thats at least one winning perk of being my age. At this point, and pretty much from now on, if its something I like, and it won’t snuff me outright, I do it. I’ll have plenty of time to cut way back on “bad” things later.

  145. Oh, I am not rationing for health reasons. I just want to enjoy it for as long as possible. I was planning on 1 slice every half hour, but the 1st trip resulted in 3 slices, so that plan got scrapped quickly. When I took it all into the office, Better Half yelled that I better not be eating all of the bacon at once, so I had to ditch that plan. So, the plan, v3.0, is to wait for Better Half to go to bed, and eat it all in once sitting, at least all that is left at that point, which is now 6 slices less than a pound.

  146. - Now see, I would do BLT‘s, have to be careful with the tomatos, unless they’re home grown or you know exactly where they came from, stalks still on when you clean them if possible.

    - That is one way to make them stretch.

    - Another is what I did for tonights dinner. I threw a few rashers across the top of the meatloaf after I ladled on the tomato paste, and then cut up some bite size pieces to seed the brick oven beans with. Really kicks it all up a notch. My kid loves it.

  147. This?

    “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

    That sounds like a pretty average black guy who’s aware of racism. Not that any of that racism would come from all-American right-wingers like you guys. LOL

  148. Hmmmm.

    How is BHO *black*?

    His mother was white.

    His father was 88% Arab and 12% black.

    That makes Obama 6% black.

  149. - We’re talking about food Caric. Nobody cares about your phony race baiting anymore. Old news. A few more years, you and the Sharptons, and Jacksons will be out of business. You’ll have to find a new career. Screeching epithets at people you want to silence and bully is old hat junior. Wise up.

  150. Hey prof, is this your driveby then you’ll duck back under your bridge?

  151. and I really wonder, prof, how many ‘average black guys’ you actually know.

  152. caric – Shut the fuck up, please. You have thoroughly embarassed yourself, the institution of higher learning you work for, timmah, todd mayo, and the rest of your hangers on. Bring your A game, if you have one, or stay on the bench.

    I agree Baracky is a pretty average guy. Can you point to any instance of racism towards Baracky on here? By that, I mean real racism, not the silly definitions you use, like disagreeing with policies, pointing out that he has not executive experience, is an empty suit, etc …

  153. Darleen – Caricature lives in one of the whitest counties in the entire country, less than 2.6% of the population.

  154. - And BTW. That little bit of whiny race card self description is not likely to “scare” anyone. What it is likely to do, far more likely, is the more of this Marxo-crat crap of “if you don’t vote for him you’re racist” the more people are going to see hes not yet ready for prime time and decline voting for him for that reason, not the color of his skin.

    - And THAT junior is whats really got your panties in a twist.

  155. Caricature – I thought Baracky was the post-racial post-partisan that was going to lead the difficult national conversation on race. Sad that it is only difficult for asshats like you, that think the national dialogue on race consists of calling people racists. You are a fat greasy pile of shit. Fat and greasy is good on bacon. Not so good on people.

  156. - Listen Caric. You want to do your candidate a real favor? Get your head out of your ass, stop wasting time spewing your little boy name calling with people that see you coming 100 miles down the road. Get off your flabby ass and talk to your guy. Tell him that what hes doing is almost guaranteed to make his campaign a loser.

    - Hes still living on the corner of State street and 40th Avenue, under the “L”. America is not the south side of Chicago. He keeps describing himself in those defeatist terms, then people are going to just say, “Ok, we believe you, you’re a loser with a crappy self image, and way too immature to be in the WH.”

    - Oldest mistake in the book Caric, and you’re just making it worse. Grow up.

  157. crucifiction?

  158. Oh. That was back at #2. I just thought of it now is all.

  159. Mmmmm…bacon. I’ve got some in the freezer, as it happens.

    I may just have to take some out to thaw and fire up the deep fryer tomorrow.

    Ever cook bacon in a deep fryer? It’s freakin’ awesome.

    And yeah, I was wondering the same thing as the rest of you. When’s the last time Caric ever heard an “average black guy”? Or any black guy, for that matter?

  160. Darleen,
    I’ll try the avocado version on my wife who loves them.

    JD,
    My lovely wife did work for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. So generally around here it’s “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner” Tonight was meatloaf which also makes great sandwiches.

    Now to bed so we can make it to church tomorrow and the after services potluck.

    This thread is making me fat. :-)

  161. This thread is making me fat. :-)

    Ha!

    Wait ’til we start on desserts!

    I made my [in]famous cheesecake for my staff last Thursday … along with a fresh blueberry sauce to poor on at will.

    I tell you, they are fully MINE now…. bwhahahahaha!

  162. I just took a package of bacon and a roll of sausage out of the freezer.

    Tomorrow will be a good day.

  163. poor= pour

    I claim shrimp overload (husband pan seared them in butter, garlic and line juice, I made a rice sidedish flavored with shallots and tumeric)

    plus a classic gin martini, two garlic stuff olives…..

    (it is still 93 degrees outside)

  164. Pingback: Obama Plays the Race Card! : Stop The ACLU

  165. His father was 88% Arab and 12% black.

    That makes Obama 6% black.

    Take it from someone else who is half Luo–this is false.

  166. I don’t have me no percentages, being adopted and all, but I’m awfully pale. Still, having percentages seems kind of not very useful. The important thing is to know Baracky is something like 60% marxist and 40% obnoxious I think.

    It’s still surprising to me that there’s a for real marxist running for president of the United States of America, but then I remember Mr. Soros, and it kinda makes more sense.

  167. Oh. Wait. I forgot. Back when I was adopted there was still this clause in the papers where you were guaranteed a white baby. I’m not sure if that meant you could just send it back or if they wouldn’t even give it to you at all. But yeah, for real I was guaranteed white. What a world. Maybe that was just a Texas thing.

  168. Oh. I guess that only makes sense if I put in there that I was one of those pre-birth adoption thingers.

  169. O! is the pinnacle of political cultural evolution.
    how can i not admire him?

    And all it took was the Chicago machine and a nitwit like Jack Ryan. Hello!?! Is hat not enough for a Republican? And he wanted to be a Senator?

    Thanks, Jack. Asshole.

  170. I wonder what old Jack thinks when he hears Barracky talking about “stop smearing my wife”?

  171. That sounds like a pretty average black guy who’s aware of racism.

    And if you are aware of it, why not exploit it, huh?

  172. What language is that post written in you linked to Pablo?

  173. Wait ’til we start on desserts!

    cupcakes!

    thinking I’ll make some this week, because I deserve it if I have to w*rk on a Friday.

  175. ‘feets, it appears to be translated from something, though I don’t know what. I linked it for the photo, entirely.

    Dammit, Jack! What the fuck were you thinking?

  176. In spite of the repeated explanations that its recent observations approximately the dry blow of gangsta have been taken from the context, Alicia Keys has been criticized and removed autoproclamato state from cent of rapper the 50 of gangsta. In un interview with the bucket of the mixer, the keys are cited been like saying, ” The dry blow of Gangsta was a stratagem in order to convince the color persons to kill itself. ”

    Screw Jabberwocky, this shit is ill!

  177. Oprah Winfrey, a frank critic of the dry blow of gangsta…

    That’s poetry.

  178. Pablo I’ll concede the point. It takes a special kind of stupid to lose such a hotie. But then again Illinois is famous for its stupid and crooked politicians. But then again, they are largely democrats.

    So if I understand the Obama supporters line if I vote against him I am a racist. However according to them I am supposed to vote him because he is Black. That being his principle qualification. Marvelous.
    Oh God! Son of Carter is coming to a theater near you. I already feel the malaise upon me. Soon enough the party that is advocating the nationalization of the oil and health care industries will soon be changing the flag to represent the new reality: 57 stars on a field of red with the hammer and sickle in the center of the flag. The new national anthem will be the Internationale. Marvelous darling, simply marvelous.

  179. Yes, I’m linkwhoring again, but you might want to see this. Feel free to steal it, too.

  180. I can’t vote for a presidential candidate who doesn’t know how many states there are in the union.

    That said, the racists are fascinating. Couple of years ago a friend (she’s 23 years old) audition for NBC Law and Order…she was called in for the part of a crack-addicted teenage prostitute but casting said her skin color was not quite dark enough, so instead she got the part of a 35 year old mother of two whose very successful husband was having a gay affair and he ended up killing his lover. Apparently, according to Hollywood formula, successful blacks are lighter skinned.

    The reason why the racists are voting for Obama is because his color is just the right tone; any blacker and he would be perceived as a gangster and any lighter the racists could not decry racism towards their opponent.

    Obama is about the marketing and Hollywood is the master of that trick of the trade.

  181. “What language is that post written in you linked to Pablo?”

  182. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name.

    Lessee, those are the exact reasons that 31 out of 32 HR professionals gave me when I was applying for jobs I wasn’t qualified for.

    #32 was so inexperienced she let me get to the interview stage, where the hiring manager told me I was too inexperienced for the job.

    As a non-black, I don’t have the race card to play, so I told my wife I was “just too good looking”. She took that about as well as Karl takes the Obie blurb, because it was just as honest.

  183. Apparently, eating almost a pound of bacon encourages one to fall asleep on the sofa while watching UFC.

  184. I reckon it’s about time for somebody to take a shot at us, here at home.

    Baracky needs a scenario to talk tough. It’s as simple as that. The media can’t control the sine-wave quality of gaffe/lie/embarassing staff disclosures.

    Some pointless mall slaughter or a car bomb somewhere. Even better would be a decoy operation pushed right to the hilt on an airline, then Baracky could “bring peace and understanding” from America to the unjustly accused jihadis.

    It this keeps up, people will vote for the guy who played the president in Independence Day before either of the two clowns we have before us now.

    We’ve got a month before Iran gets dealt with. I wonder if the crushing effect of fuel prices will already have begun cascading by then.

    Ugly damned summer ahead.

  185. I cook the bacon on the Foreman grill. It comes out straight and crispy and most of the grease drains off. That grill is simply genius!

  186. I luvs me my BLT, but it is even better with avocado.

    If you include avocado on a BLT it becomes a BLAT.

    ;)

  190. …. the dominant lifeform in the evolutionary landscape of politics.

    Landscape, eh? He’s not even in a petri dish. More like his own slide in the rack, if that.

    File this under “Hip Hop – Great Dance, or Break Dancing For The New Millenium?”

  191. Reminds me a lot of Ned Lamont, he was a trend-setter too, as I recall.

  192. O! isn’t a freshmaker, though. All his advisers are from the “almost free meat” bin.

  193. the dominant lifeform in the evolutionary landscape of politics

    Were he dominant, shouldn’t he be able to point towards some type of achievement?

    Baracky is a one hit wonder, a flash in the pan. Break dancing. The 1908 Cubs. Day-glo clothing.

  194. David Axelrod is the Intelligent Designer.

  195. Were he dominant, shouldn’t he be able to point towards some type of achievement?

    hell, shouldn’t he have been able to close on the primary race in January?

  196. Who designed David Axelrod, then?

  197. Break dancing

    American Idol for the youth demographic.
    ;)

  198. American Idol for the youth demographic.

    Break dancing? Isn’t that like 20 years out of date?

    The only “break dancing” Obama’s cabinet will do is when Warren Christopher trips going down the stairs and breaks a hip.

    Obama just fucked you and the rest of the “youth vote” in the ass with no lube, nishi.

    And you’re just gonna smile and invite him to come back for seconds?
