OT, Powell Reaches a Startling Conclusion

The NYT has an article about Powell's recent endorsement of Obama. That's pretty neat, but the interesting thing is in the video they embed from "Meet the Press" in which Powell makes his announcement. Check out what he starts to say at the 4:28 mark:

It's just amazing. The dude is talking about how it disturbs him that his party members are ok with saying things like "he's a Muslim" as if this is NEWS to him? How the fuck do you get to be one of the most prominent figures of the Republican party and NOT notice that there's a SHIT FUCKING LOAD of racism in it? What, did you think they just all happen to think affirmative action was bad because they really, truly, believed that equality was letting the down trodden fight for themselves? Did you really think that the war on drugs was about keeping us safe and not locking up darkie? Did you honestly believe that we'd be bombing the fuck out of France right now if 9/11 had been committed by the Quebecquois? How far up your ass can your head fucking be?

Seriously, it takes you until now to make a statement about racists undercurrents in the GOP? Now, after MONTHS of emails, robocalls, and fucking POLITICAL SPEECHES BY THE VICE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE THAT CALL THE NATIONS FIRST BLACK PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ALL BUT A TERRORIST??!?!?!?!? What else were you waiting for, a fucking signed declaration of racism by the top officials of the party? Had you NOT FUCKING HEARD OF JESSE HELMS?!?!?!

Seriously, right wingers are the most deluded people on the planet.

The McCain Campaign is merely following the template laid out by Nixon and followed to the letter by every Republican candidate since. It's the essence of the modern Republican party. It's who they are.

It's nice to see that because of the Iraq Invasion, economic collapse, and myriad other plagues brought on by the Cheney Administration--Right Wing Noise Machine Cabal, it's considered acceptable to make note on the finest of Sabbath Gasbag Programs.

As you noted, anyone who didn't notice this is at best naive yet still an accomplice to the perfect shitstorm.

Megan needs to get herself in gear. Is she so busy doing podcasts that she can't do her blog?

Typical--thinks only of herself, nothing of us and our needs.
