GW Bush doesn't like black people that say he doesn't like black people

In G-Dubbs’ recently published memoir “Decision Points,” the former prez takes Kanye to task for his racist remarks famously made during Hurricane Katrina. Since Kanye is an egoist and speaking out of turn is totally acceptable for him since he also thinks having sex with a pharaoh is awesome/possible, no one was shocked. I’m just surprised he didn’t bust out with, “Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t care about wildlife” during the outrageously mismanaged BP oil spill. It’s almost like he only likes Obama because he’s black.

“I also make it clear that the misery in Louisiana affected me deeply as well,” said Bush. “There’s a lot of tough moments in the book. And it was a disgusting moment, pure and simple.”

Liberty Pageant to ask questions about the Constitution

Not to get all pageanty today, although I absolutely adore pageants, but there’s a new kind of pageant in town. The Liberty Pageant, founded by Tea Party 2012 prez candidate and sister to Alicia Hayes-Roberts Rutherford B. Hayes (like the former president, except not), is set to take place in Vegas in July 2012. I can’t think of a more libertarian haven, what with access to legalized prostitution, gambling, and the cheapest all-you-can-eat buffets in the world. Hayes started the pageant to honor “PATRIOTS that truly love America and want to preserve her integrity.”

Hayes told POLITICO:

“As a 2012 presidential independent candidate, I would like to state for the record that I believe we have been Taxed Enough Already. In addition, I stand and represent the documents of our founding fathers and their vision for America. Having said that; Miss Liberty America’s platform is the documents of our founding fathers and the preservation of them for ALL Americans.”

Forget “talent portion”–these ladies will compete at a firing range where they will be judged for their firearm form. They’ll also ask questions regarding the Constitution, especially Tea Party values like the Second Amendment and taxation.

I really hope Sarah Palin makes a guest appearance, since she obviously has been training for this pageant her entire life.

Obama-Bush barbershop situation

From Kelly Ann Collins’ Glittarazzi:

George Bush and Barack Obama somehow ended up at the same barbershop.

As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber, not a word was spoken. The barbers were even afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics. As the barbers finished their shaves, the one who had Obama in his chair reached for the aftershave.

Obama was quick to stop him saying, ‘No thanks, my wife Michelle will smell that and think I’ve been in a whorehouse.’ The second barber turned to Bush and said, ‘How about you sir?’ Bush replied, ‘Go ahead; my wife doesn’t know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like.’

~ We received this from several people on the Hill. It’s been circulating politico inboxes this past week.

Researchers find a "Liberal Gene"….this explains volumes

I knew there had to be some sort of medical explanation for liberals….

The discovery of the “DRD4″ gene (aka the liberal gene) is the “first specific bit of human DNA that predisposes people to certain political views,” says lead researcher James H Fowler. From Fox News:

“The way openness is measured, it’s really about receptivity to different lifestyles, for example, or different norms or customs,” he told “We hypothesize that individuals with a genetic predisposition toward seeking out new experiences [a measure of openness] will tend to be more liberal” — but only if they had a number of friends when growing up, Fowler cautioned.”

He continued to say, “ideology is about 40 percent heritable. It’s almost half genes and half environment.” So yes, unfortunately stupidity can be passed on to your offspring.

Thank goodness for good genetics.

Maureen Dowd: still making everyone vom.

Not that she’s a hypocrite, but here’s one Mean Girl hating on a bunch of other women she jealously perspicaciously titles Mean Girls as well:

As I sat above the Hoover Dam under the broiling sun, I was getting jittery.

There was Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona, speaking at the dedication of a bridge linking Arizona and Nevada 890 feet above the Colorado River.

As the politicians droned on and my Irish skin turned toasty brown, I worried that Governor Brewer might make a citizen’s arrest and I would have to run for my life across the desert. She has, after all, declared open season on anyone with a suspicious skin tone in her state.

We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up versions of those teenage tormentors who would steal your boyfriend, spray-paint your locker and, just for good measure, spread rumors that you were pregnant.

These women — Jan, Meg, Carly, Sharron, Linda, Michele, Queen Bee Sarah and sweet wannabe Christine — have co-opted and ratcheted up the disgust with the status quo that originally buoyed Barack Obama. Whether they’re mistreating the help or belittling the president’s manhood, making snide comments about a rival’s hair or ripping an opponent for spending money on a men’s fashion show, the Mean Girls have replaced Hope with Spite and Cool with Cold. They are the ideal nihilistic cheerleaders for an angry electorate.

Seated next to Brewer at the bridge dedication was Harry Reid, the slight, mild-mannered, 70-year-old Senate majority leader who has wandered into the surprise fight of his career — a race where the fur is flying.

“Man up, Harry Reid,” Sharron Angle taunted him at their Las Vegas debate here Thursday night. That’s not an idle insult, coming from a woman who campaigns at times with a .44 Magnum revolver in her 1989 GMC pickup.

With casino red suit and lipstick, Angle played the Red Queen of the Mad Hatter tea party, denouncing career politicians and ordering “Off with your head!” and “Down with government benefits!” Even sober and smiling beneath her girlish bangs, the 61-year-old Angle had the slightly threatening air of the inebriated lady in a country club bar, tossing off outrageous statements and daring anyone to call her on them.

The debate between the former boxer and the former competitive weight lifter, the soft-spoken Mormon and the outspoken Christian, was a source of fascination because the rivals perfectly represent the two caricatures of the midterms: The Washington incumbent and master of back-room deals who’s been around forever and lost touch with people versus the wacky new-breed Tea Party challenger who’s hiding from and hating on the press, spouting a lot of weird stuff and vowing to do what Barack Obama didn’t: Shake up Washington.

The senator began the debate with a gentle reminiscence about his mother, who took in wash from the brothels in scruffy Searchlight, Nev.

Angle could have told the poignant story of her German immigrant great-grandmother who died trying to save laundry hanging on the clothesline in a South Dakota prairie fire, which Angle wrote about in her self-published book, “Prairie Fire.” But instead the former teacher and assemblywoman began hurling cafeteria insults. “I live in a middle-class neighborhood in Reno, Nevada,” she said. “Senator Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.”

Reid did not man up enough to mock Angle’s nutty assertion that Shariah law exists in Dearborn, Mich., and Frankford, Tex. (a town that hasn’t existed since 1975). But he did rebut Angle’s inane contention that health insurers should not have to cover anything, talking about how important it was to be covered on mammograms and colonoscopies.

“If you do colonoscopies,” he said, “colon cancer does not come ’cause you snip off the things they find when they go up and — no more.”

“Well,” Angle replied tartly, “pink ribbons are not going to make people have a better insurance plan.”

Angle has been pressing the case, underwritten by Karl Rove’s operation and other conservative groups that have made the majority leader their No. 1 target, that Reid must be punished for being in a socialist triumvirate with Nancy Pelosi and President Obama. In the debate, she went for the jugular, asking him how he became “one of the richest men in the Senate” after coming from Searchlight “with very little.”

Reid, who cloaks his ambition and brass knuckles under a mousy facade, looked as if she had slapped him. He called her “my friend,” but clearly did not think of her as his “pet,” as he unfortunately dubbed Chris Coons, the Delaware opponent of the bewitching Christine O’Donnell.

He said that was “really kind of a low blow,” adding that he had been a successful lawyer before becoming a pol, and “did a very good job in investing.”

After the debate was over, Angle scurried away and so did I — in a different direction. I was feeling jittery again. If she saw me, she might take away my health insurance and spray-paint my locker.
