A Charlie Brown Christmas Brought to You by the Far Right Wing of the Republican Party

I was just watching A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC and they edited Joe Biden out of the story. Here's the version I remember...

Gil - Why not post something REAL funny? Like a video of Herman Cain reciting lines from the Pokemon theme song in his farewell address. Explain to me again why you thought he was a serious candidate.

Bob, calm down, buddy. It'll be ok, enjoy the media's victory of taking down another candidate.

Saw this video last year, hilarious.

Steve - I'm calm. Just enjoying the comedy AKA the Republican primaries.

Bob will have none of that black man leaving the liberal plantation.
Now that Cain is out of the race, we can go back to our regularly scheduled programming -- calling Republicans and Tea-baggers racists.

Jake, you just don't get it do you? What does the color of Cains skin have to do with any of this, and why would you make a racist accusation about me? What will it take for you to learn that we should judge a man by his character, not his skin color?

Quick, call the civility police. There's been a violation in Bob-world.

Jake - Take all the cheap shots you want. But at least have the balls to answer my question. What does the color of Cain's skin have to do with any of this?

Bob,
I don't accept your premise that my comment was a cheap shot, nor do I accept your premise that I accused you of being a racist.

Your misguided umbrage only reiterates the politicized irony of racism noted in my first comment on this post.

If you want to question my manhood, you ought to have more to go on than your hurt feelings.

Biden is a great representative of the Irish Catholic faith, isn't he?
Is this where I can bring up those 5 deferments and asthma issue after illustrious football career!?!? Maybe not!!

Bob is laughing at the Republican Primaries and everyone of those folks beats Obama in the polling. Every single one! Even Caine 2 days after his resignation.

Can you say one term, Bob.

Jake - You don't have to accept my premise. I could care less. Just answer the question. What does the color of Cain's skin have to do with this?

Danny - Are you referring to the fair and balanced Spencerblog poll?
Here's where we differ. You could be right. Obama might be a one term president, but he will not be beat by the likes of Perry, Cain, Bachman, Ron Paul or Newt. If Romney or Huntsman get the nod, it would at least give independants like me a choice.

Danny - Do me a favor. Either show me or tell me where you found that poll that says Cain would defeat Obama in an election. Thanks.

I've heard plenty of "Uncle Tom" References to Cain during the height of his campaign. I took him as a candidate with executive experiences who offered a bold idea on taxation that yes, would have saved me money in the longrun based on my spending habits. But my personal congrats to the Media, Gloria Alford, etc for the takedown.

I saw another "Child asks Bachman about Gay Rights" video this week - I find it funny that the media jumps all over this sort of thing to make the candidate seem "crazy", as if social issues are the true barometer of how worthy a presidential candidate should be. I'm socially moderate, however, in 2012, my primary issue will be the economy and what to do about fixing it, placing it back on the proper 'growth' track, and, Allah forbid, hoping for the GDP to once again outpace the debt. We never get the perfect candidate in these elections, so we make the best decision for our futures. and based on the "health" of our economic system, if you're basing your vote just because someone opposes gay marriage, you clearly don't get the bigger picture.


Wouldn't it be funny to see the media go after democrats in quick quips for things like Stimulus Spending for Government Departments and the massive amounts of 'shovel-ready' projects that apparently sit around for JUST that very funding, the strict refusal to modernize entitlements that dear old FDR and LBJ created, quantative easing, massive inflation of 'play money', and debt growth that funally overtook GDP growth? Clearly, I'm dreaming...

finally. But 'funnily' kinda makes sense, too...

Jake - Despite your unimpressive attempt to write like Bill Buckley, your inability to answer my question speaks volumes.

Steve - I don't know why Jake felt it necessary to play the race card. It was uncalled for. I could care less what color the guys skin is. I judge a candidate on character, intellect and intellectual criosity. Cain came up short on all three.

I saw the Bachman confrontation. The mother put that kid in an uncomfortable position. It was just wrong.

Bob,
Despite your unimpressive attempt to play the victim like Al Sharpton, your inability to grasp fairly routine vernacular like the "liberal plantation" speaks volumes.

Jake - This has nothing to do with the routine vernacular used by Hannity, Rush and Beck. Here's your statement "Bob will have none of that black man leaving the liberal plantation."
Again. What does the color of Cain's skin have to do with any of this?

December 8, 2011 at 4:06 PM

Wow, talk about having to explain the obvious...
Do you think it makes any sense, Bob, for a white man to leave the liberal plantation?

I go away for 4 days and look how you boys fight!!

Jake - You've painted yourself into a corner, and now you can't answer the question without looking foolish, so allow me to explain the obvious to you. Cain's color had nothing to do with any of this. Except maybe to you. Cain's original accusations prove that his own party was responsible for his downfall. That, his lack of integrity, and his lack of intellectual curiosity. He made a fool of himself (We need a leader not a reader) and your party. Most on the left have embraced Colin Powell. He's a Republican. Michael Steele gets our respect. So again Jake. It's time to stop playing the race card Jake. It's time to come to grips with he fact that Cain simply was a poor candidate.
