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.
