Little Jack Horner Sat in the Corner Because He Was Controlled By His Fear
Senator Larry Craig vowed to continue his “work in the US Senate,” while a Judge decides whether or not he can withdrawal his guilty plea that stemmed from his involvement in Pottygate.
In a candid interview, Craig, despite overwhelming evidence, Pinkie Swore that he is not now nor has he ever been attracted to Men with Hairy Knuckles and Mustaches.
Although he admitted, he does occasionally fantasize about Dom Deluise Naked, Smothered in Pastrami and Onions.
(But hey, who doesn’t?)
Jenna Bush, on the show 20/20, told the 4 people who give a shit how she and her “Boyfriend” became engaged.
Did you know she has a book out? Are you Fucking kidding me?
I’m not sure if this is good or bad.
On one hand if a marginally literate chromosomally challenged twit can get published, I’m in like Flynn.
On the otherhand if a Marginally Literate Chromosomally Challenged Twit is who they Publish, I may as well give up and get a job at a Law Firm.
Oh yeah, Jenna’s engagement.
Apparently, in between shots of Mad Dog that dude said, “Are you sure a Blue Line means it’s Positive?”
Clarence Thomas is pissing people off again (Gee what’s new), but this time it’s with his Auto-Biography “My Grandfather’s Son.” (Yet another Mouthbreather with a book).
In his “book,” Thomas refers to Anita Hill as a “Mediocre Employee” (Takes one to know one), and his “Most traitorous adversary.” (Dudes generally don’t like women who blow the whistle on their Sexual Deviance).
Many people think that Thomas is a “Tom,” and that he’s Mollified his “Blackness” in order to be accepted in the Lily White Mental Disorder known as the GOP, and I concur wholeheartedly. (Not that the Liberals have treated minorities much better).
He’s also been criticized for using programs set up to benefit Minorities, only to turn his back and condemn those same programs now that he has a seat in the “House.”
Again, I concur.
However, my problem with Thomas is that he goes out of his way to make his race a “non-issue,” unless (Unless) it benefits him to be black.
If anyone remembers his Confirmation Hearing, the turning point was when he referred to the Investigation into Hill’s claims as a “High-Tech Lynching.”
Hold on a Fucking Minute Cochise.
If you’re just a “Human Being,” then no way can you evoke the memory of Lynch Mobs carrying torches and nooses when it serves you to do so.
I’m no expert on being a “Minority” in America, but in my limited experience most “People of Color” can’t turn their “Coloredness” on and off.
But Thomas apparently has this power, and most of the time he’s nothing but a “Human Being.”
Isn’t that Fucking Sweet?
In fact, Thomas’ idea of Race is more akin to the “Liberal” notion that we live in a “Colorblind World” where race is a Biological Myth, and that it doesn’t matter.
Fuck Yes it Matters!
To the Powers That Be some black kid on the street is a “Nigger” today, and tomorrow he/she will be that same “Nigger.” A kid on the streets doesn’t get to be a “Human Being” nor can he/she pretend “We’re all Equal in God’s Eyes.”
God doesn’t carry a badge, and a 9 mm.
I understand the difficulty in Thomas’ situation. After all he’s a member of a Party that built its Power Base using the “Southern Strategy.” He can’t go around acting “Too Black” or he’ll upset the “Base.”
Unless of course, “Acting Black” silences his critics, and Ends with him Sitting on the Supreme Court.
Thomas walks a Tightrope each and every day, and I don’t envy his position one bit.
But you know what?
You made your bed, now Fucking Sleep in It.
By playing the “Lynching Card,” Thomas effectively Shut Down the Pussy Democrats and their Investigation.
Can’t have some Fascist call us “Racists.”
Yeah, we don’t want that.
Forget the fact that people like Thomas would turn back the Clock in this country Several Hundred Years if they had their way.
“Oh no, we don’t want to Offend Anyone. We love the Colored Folk.”
Thomas, and those like him, be they Black or White, are dangerous, and it would have been nice if the Limpocrats displayed some kind of Spine during his Confirmation. (I digress).
I don’t know if anyone watched the Interview he gave on 60 Minutes this past Sunday, but between the numerous moments of Bravado Thomas put himself out there for everyone to see,
“I was raised by a Tyrant in a Racist Country, and man oh man did it ever shape who I am.” He did not say.
During the first half of the Interview, Thomas was very confident, almost defiant, and he had no problem talking about Racism or how his mother, out of necessity, was forced to send he and his brother to live with their Grandfather.
He confidently related how he essentially had no childhood, and that from day one after moving in with Grandpa he was put to work.
He never wavered one single time.
When asked about his Hardass Grandfather, and if he believed his Grandfather treated him the way he did out of “Love,”Thomas couldn’t answer. Not confidently at least.
The question stopped him dead in his tracks.
At first, he talked around the word “Love,” saying his Granddad provided a “roof” (All the typical bullshit you hear from Wingnuts. A parent’s only job is to provide the basic necessities: food, clothing, shelter etc), and that his Grandfather “Cared for him.”
I “Care” for my neighbors, but I don’t “Love” them.
In the end, he said his Grandfather “Loved” him, but (And this was quick. You really had to pay attention) his voice trailed off, and the once “Confident Brother” sounded anything but Sure.
That tells you far more than any of the Pre-Packaged Garbage he was Selling. In that brief moment, Thomas was a little boy, and his eyes were filled with doubt.
Maybe he was simply embarrassed talking about something Emotional. I guess that’s possible.
But I’m not buying it because he had no problem speaking about other Emotional Issues, including his mom moving he and his brother out of Her house.
I’m also not buying it because-
Wingnuts are the most Repressed, Emotionally Stunted People in the Entire Fucking World. The Party’s Foundation is built on Denial, and many Wingdingaroos act as though “Love” is some Sissy Ass Emotion reserved for Liberals and Faggots only (Redundant in their minds, I know).
We forget that Public Figures were once children, and that Who They Are Now was Shaped Many Years Ago.
Most of Us are Born with Adequate Wiring. We may have a screw Loose here and there, but for the most part we’re all born the same.
But not all of us are born into the same reality, and it is our Reality that Eventually Shapes the Person we become.
Thomas was raised in a Hard World. Not only did he have to deal with Systemic Racism, but he also lived with a man who treated him like a “Laborer.” (His word).
Now, I’m not opposed to teaching kids about responsibility or holding them accountable. One of the many bones of contention between my daughter’s mother and I is I think she’s a Pussy (Actually she’s Lazy), and she thinks I’m a “Hardass.”
My daughter is only 3 and in my/our house (She spends the majority of her time with me) she has chores and responsibilities. She picks up her toys, and her room. She gets something out, she puts it away. Of course I have to prompt her most of the time, but that’s the Law.
One of the obvious benefits is I don’t have to follow her around picking up her crap all day long. She knows to pick it up herself.
But the most important benefit is she feels like a “Big Shot” when she’s cleaned her room. Afterward she always runs into my office, “Dada, Dada, I cleaned my room. Come see!”
She eats it up when I tell her how Proud of her I am.
I have no problem with this aspect of Parenting. Ultimately, our children have to take care of themselves, and it builds their confidence to have responsibilities.
The problem is that apparently in Wingnutatopia that’s all there is to Parenting. There is no balance, and children are treated, as Thomas put it, like Laborers/Employees. (The Counter to this are the “Liberals” who give their 15 year old son a Candy Bar every time he wipes his own Ass).
I promise you, if you asked my daughter if her Dada loved her, she’d answer “Yes” with a Quickness and she’d have a big shit eating grin on her face to boot.
We have many tender moments together, and she knows I Love Her more than Anything in the Entire World.
Thomas apparently didn’t have that or at least he didn’t speak about it. He passed on the Usual Wingnut Talking Points about “Personal Responsibility” and blah blah blah and yadda yadda yadda.
Great when describing the Adult World, not so much when recounting your Childhood.
Thomas was created. No one showed him Empathy or much Tenderness so why in the Fuck should he show other people those things?
Anyway, that’s enough about that asshole. I have other things to do.
The point is…
The Average Wingnut is no Fucking “Mystery.”
