PUMA Politics: Do The Dems Have The Devil Inside?

It has been quite the newsday today and I have almost sent my phalanges into extinction writing posts about idiot children who do not have sense enough to clamp their lips together before they prove to us exactly how mentally challenged they actually are; and even though it is very late, I am getting to the post that should have been written many hours ago about even more insane, horrific bad manners coming from an elected official of the Democratic Party.  I would like to give Texas Hill the hat-tip for reminding me about this unbelievable rudeness that started in the primaries against Hillary Clinton and her supporters but is now spreading; thanks in part, I believe, to Barack Obama’s inability, negligence or just plain apathy to step up and rein in his supporters and surrogates.  What in the name of all the unspoken rules of civility has gotten into Obama surrogates?  What?  Is it about time for INXS “The Devil Inside”?

According to CNN, earlier today:

  • “If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.
  • After telling attendees that the most important thing Jewish and African-American Democrats could do to support one another was to get Sen. Barack Obama elected president, Hastings had one more message: “For those of you like me that supported Sen. Hillary Clinton, she lost! Get over it!”

Well Rep. Hastings; thanks for that uplifting message of hope and change.  I will make sure to just “get over it”, just as soon as I hear it from somebody I actually respect and who still has some class, manners, and self-respect left.  I might also listen to someone who is not alluding to Hitler while speaking to a Jewish audience about another American citizen.  You are a cad, and from what I have seen over the course of this election, a perfect surrogate for the Obama camp, and a candidate for having your mouth washed out with soap by the nuns.

  1. Wasn’t that amazing? Well, not really…if you remember Johnnie Cochran’s comments during the O.J. trail in 1995…

    Frankly, I’ve got one eye on the current O.J. trial…and I’m waiting to see what happens if he is convicted this time around…I have a quote from Cochran and if it doesn’t sound just like Hastings….There are no AA’s on the jury this time around…and already, there’s been the racial issue brought up in the selection process…

    I’m getting nervous about this…with the way things are going in the media, I can’t help it…and the Obama campaign, I’m sure, will try to exploit this in some way….So much for “unity.”

  2. YIKES! Thank GOD he’s not my congressman. I’m lucky enough to be represented by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. I’m not thrilled that she’s behind Obama now, but I’ll take her over him ANY DAY. What a mess.

  3. i cannot believe how i’ve gone from LOVING so many Dems …. to outright LOATHING… Hastings’ comments are beyond the pale….like so many others’ in his party.

    I know peeps who are voting McPalin sheerly out of disgust for Post-Denver-Democratic-Behavior!

    So i say: Bring it on – you just may make history – only not the kind of history YOU want!

    Mr. Hastings’ comments speak volumes about his bigotry. His is an exemplar of Obamaesque unity through conformity.

    Consider me shocked!

    Bill Clinton conducted the clinic on effective management of “too enthusiastic supporters” on last night’s Larry King Live. With dignity and intelligence, he stands up for his wife, but knows his worth and respects that he has become the gentleman she always hoped he’d be.

  7. yochanan says:

    Hastings was one of 6 federal judges who was impeached. not one ounce of class

    frankly any comparison to SNICKERGRUBER means you have lost the debate when refering to a gov’r of alaska. Maybe if you were refering to the short shit of iran but never an american gov’r.

  8. Anne Marie says:

    Sigh! The “gentleman” needs some classes in civility, anger management, and class. Of course, “class” cannot be bought or learned. Rather, it is an inherent mechanism which is a true measure of character, because it requires that we not only comport ourselves with dignity, but that we also extend that same dignity to other human beings, even those with whom we disagree. Rep. Hastings, however, has proven(many times) that he DOES belong in the Obama camp, because the Obamots continually “roll over” any dissenting people, ideas, or opinions like a steamshovel.So, goodbye progress. Goodbye political dialogue. And goodbye “unity.” I say “No Deal” to this vision of America.
