Black comedy

November 10, 2012

[J.P.'s Moment of Common Sense on Broad View, KBZZ 1270 AM and 96.1 FM in Reno. Listen live Saturdays at 2:00 PM Pacific Time.]

By almost every measure, Tuesday was a bad day for Republicans. Barack Obama was re-elected president, the Democrats maintained control of the Senate, Minnesota – home of the election fraud that sent Al Franken to Washington – voted against voter ID, and California voted to raise taxes in a fit of masochism which pretty much ends the debate about whether Californians are sane.

What sort of muttonheads vote to raise their own taxes? And speaking of mutton, they should start checking California for Mad Cow Disease because something is seriously wrong over there. Nevada should consider closing the border.

More bad news for Republicans: Allen West is demanding a recount in Florida, never a good sign. Allen West is one of the most eloquent and courageous conservatives in the Republican Party but by the time this airs he might be the loser. Being a black Republican is like being a black crewman on the old Star Trek series – you knew that poor slob was going to be the first guy to get knocked off when they beamed down to the planet. I don’t know who did the casting for Star Trek, but apparently they held a firm belief that the universe is populated by aliens who hated black people.

Or maybe, being Hollywood liberals, they were simply reflecting their own personal views.

Democrats target black Republicans in general and female black Republicans in particular. They can’t abide the thought. The Democrat National Committee poured money into Utah to make sure Mia Love didn’t become the first female black Republican in Congress, so now they get to continue calling Republicans racist for not having a female black congresswoman. If you’re puzzled by the logic of that reasoning, you haven’t attended college in the last thirty years. It’s called Liberal Logic 101 and it’s a prerequisite now.

Conservatives spent Tuesday night and all day Wednesday in profound depression, pondering with immense pessimism the future of our nation, but then something strange started to happen. Thursday they got around to looking at things from the Democrats’ perspective and it’s pretty funny.

The election was an embarrassing spectacle for Democrats. Their incumbent president ran one of the most negative and divisive campaigns in history and now has to work with a Republican House to get anything done. How funny is that? How does he work with those guys after calling them woman-haters and racists for the last year and a half?

Democrat Elizabeth Warren was elected to the senate, so now they have a phony Cherokee from Massachusetts to go with their phony Vietnam vet from Connecticut. Tell me they’re not a little embarrassed by those two! Even Democrats have some shame. Plus they have Harry Reid as a leader which is a load of embarrassment all by itself.

Over in the House, Alan Grayson and the Kennedy family are back. Alan Grayson is the walking talking embarrassment from Florida who was in congress from 2009 to 2011. He bought his way back in by outspending his opponent $3.5 million to $91 thousand. Democrats in the House might welcome the extra vote, but you know they’re groaning inside thinking about all the crap that will come out of his mouth over the next two years.

The Kennedy family has been embarrassing Democrats for over fifty years with an endless procession of alcoholic misogynists, but they took the last two years off. Patrick Kennedy was the last one. He’s the one who narrowly avoided crashing into a police cruiser in 2006 by crashing into a police barricade instead. He went into rehab rather than jail... because that’s what happens when you’re a Kennedy. Then he went into rehab again in 2009. Then he retired in 2011 to concentrate on drinking fulltime.

Joe Kennedy III is the new Kennedy in Congress. He’s got some big shoes to fill if he wants to continue the family’s political tradition, and some big shot glasses, too. He was elected to fill Barney Frank’s old seat in Massachusetts... pardon my phraseology.

Even more embarrassing than Warren, Grayson, and Kennedy, is that Jesse Jackson, Jr., was re-elected in Chicago. Jesse Jr. has been missing in action since June but won anyway. Nothing gets in the way of the Chicago machine, not even AWOL candidates. Jackson has been locked up in a loony bin for months, fighting either mental illness or substance abuse. Nobody knows for sure. Tough to put a happy face on this one. What can Democrats say? “Jackson was the best man for the job even though he doesn’t actually show up for the job?”

Yeah, sure, Democrats maintained the status quo in Washington and that’s a victory, but some of the particulars are embarrassing and now they have to live with them. A fake Cherokee, another Kennedy, a loud-mouthed bonehead, a crazy guy who doesn’t show up for work, and a president who finally has to stop blaming George Bush.

Yep: for the first time in his life Barack Obama has to actually perform, a thought that must be giving Democrats night sweats. Good luck with that guys!

Conservatives are just going to sit back and enjoy the show.

That's... today’s dose of common sense.

From Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA       

November 12, 2012 - "Tough to put a happy face on this one. What can Democrats say? “Jackson was the best man for the job even though he doesn’t actually show up for the job?”"
And it looks like he won't be showing up anytime soon. Negotiating a plea agreement for misuse of campaign funds. Which will will include jail time and require him to resign from Congress. Damn don't they have any honest politians? – Pam T., Virginia
J.P. replies: I was seeing the future when I mentioned Jesse one day before his plea deal, wasn't I?

November 11, 2012 - The picture you posted isn't as bad as the pictures they had on several other sites. Jim saw them and couldn't believe they were real either. He looks orange, not brown. Maybe it's bad lighting or something, but somethings off. Also I would assume that racism could be found in every church denomination at one time as churches usually reflect the views of the congregation. However, these were statements made from men who supposedly were speaking on God's behalf. If they were to admit these claims were false it would likely cause doubt about other tenets of the faith. This is why I find it hard to believe that many of the more fundamental sects don't carry these beliefs with them today. I think it's reasonable that people who know this history would be hesitant to vote for a Mormon. – Samantha, Michigan
J.P. replies: I suspect you (and Daryle) were looking at doctored photos. That's what the left does: formulate a meme, then fabricate to support it, like they did with Trayvon Martin's photo and the Zimmerman video.

November 11, 2012 - Scott Brown deserved to lose he stabbed the Tea Party in the back and stiffed Sarah Palin the very people who caused his election. – Devin, North Dakota

November 10, 2012 - I had to look up the topics Daryl brought up. Romney painting his face brown seemed absolutely ridiculous and far-fetched, and I don't know much about Mormonism in general. I have to say Romney either got a terrible spray tan that day, or he was wearing dark make-up. He looks like an oompa loompa or something on that interview, lol. Pretty strange to interview on a Latino channel looking like that. I was also surprised at the degree of racism in the mormon church throughout the history. Really, really blatant and outrageous claims made about people of color. I wonder if this was the result of the prevalent racism of our country at the time, or if those views still are a part of the Mormon culture today. Any idea Daryl? I can say in reading the statements and beliefs of that church regarding race, it makes me wonder how anyone would want to vote for someone who follows that religion, especially people of color. – Samantha, Michigan
J.P. replies: Mormon history regarding race is good and bad, like most religions. The difference might be their refusal to admit the bad and apologize for it, which I suspect derives from their need to revere past leaders more than God. As for Romney's face, I don't see it. Here he is over the course of three days ending with the appearance on Univision:

November 10, 2012 - Jp....if you knew about the internet you would know the history of Blacks and mormons, you would have read about Alan West saying he was thankful white folks allowed him to sit at the table with them or romney painting his face to do an interview with univision. There was a program that was out during my childhood called RIF...reading is fundamental. You should try it sometime. – Daryle M., Ohio

November 10, 2012 - Are we supposed to stop using the word black without Daryle's permission? Tell him the word doesn't always refer to race. Good grief. – Mike, Reno
J.P. replies: I think you just told him.

November 10, 2012 - Black comedy....thought this wasn't about race. If you know history white folks for years have went out to put a black face out there to get the vote. They are called tokens....Michael Steele, Alan Keyes, Herman Cain. Any sensible Black person that listens to the Uncle Tom-foolery that falls out of his mouth can see he has been bought. Then comes Mia..a Black female mormon. We know she doesn't know better. Mormons don't like Black people. Read some of the words of the great racist Brigham young. The truth is you don't like the fact that there is a Black man in the White House. I told you I was gonna laugh at you after the reelection but you now have me rolling on the floor. I'm wondering what will babies do since the conservatives are doing all the crying. Put your George Wallace tshirt on, grab your Strom Thurmond doll and watch old Jesse Helms speeches at your pity party. – Daryle M., Ohio
J.P. replies: The term "black comedy" has nothing to do with race. It refers to humor arising from cynicism and skepticism... as in Elizabeth Warren is a phony who built her career by pretending to be a Cherokee but Democrats elected her anyway, which is funny but horrible at the same time. Get it? I know you're desperate to label conservatives (even the black ones) racist, but if you're not sure about something, Daryle, they have this wonderful invention called the Internet where you can look things up.

November 10, 2012 - That was a hysterical read! Republicans, conservatives, tea parties might all have to take up drinking to make it through the next four years. Or move to Colorado or Washington where under new state laws its legal to buy marijuana. So you can be high and eat your way through the next four years. And as far as the President actually having to work the next four years if the last four years and even the last four days is any indicator, we are in trouble. The President makes a phone call to Reid and Boehner and tells them to fix the budget. (What's up with that? He couldn't have done that in the last 3 years? Or did someone just teach him how to use a phone?) Then the U,S. has the fiscal cliff hanging over our heads and he gets on Air Force One to fly off to a summit. Something that he could have tasked to Hillary or Joe B. to do. I for one , am not optimistic that our President will change and actually do his job and is willing to work across the aisle to get things done. His style has been more on the lines of the King of Siam "so I say, so it shall be." He continues to show all signs of being a rock star wannabe and wants all the perks of the job but doesn't really want the job or do the job. – Pam T., Virginia
