Could There BE a Better News Day?

Obama releases his "long form" birth certificate on the day Donald Trump flies in a personalized helicopter to New Hampshire, to start the presidential campaign firming up process.
Trump brushes off the news. He next reveals he can't imagine HOW Obama was admitted to Columbia and Harvard law.
As one clever quipster (or two) said in the blogosphere today, there is no document that will make Obama white.
Let the racism begin! This is a terrible, funny mess.

THE BIRTHER OF A NATION

See, I look at Trump the same way I looked at Nader. Both are, let's say, enthusiastic. Both calculating (the former in his own interest, the latter mostly in the interest of others). But, goodness, neither one has a woman in his life that acts as a ballast to his wacky ideas. Witness Trump's hair, Nader's, well, 2000 run. Either they're tone-deaf to the women in their life or they're just uncaring. Not exactly what *I* would want leading my country.

I watched that debacle this morning and was trying to count the ways the Donald congratulated himself for his courageous role in the big reveal (ie, birth certificate). Can't wait for Rachel's take on this tonight!

Fast: El, you mean if he had a smart-mouthed woman, he'd never get away with this shit! Yes! He is just having so much fun.

Kudzu: I wish the news cycle was even tighter. I'm dying for updates.

fastgrowtheweeds...I hear you. See...what is needed here is a black woman who is so over all this birther crap and who would without hestiatation, take a bat to him. Then there would then be no need for the "bad comb overs". And after that she would also torch his hotel chain.

I am that woman and I volunteer for that duty at any time. I am ready to take one for the team.

My husband has assured me he will make my bail and stand by me at the news conference which would follow (during which I will not be apologizing but I will however be calling out all the other worthless birther scum) My hubby is also offering to pay for said bat and arson tools.

Simply: Hired! We want you to swing that bat. Xx

Zoomie said...

Simply, I love you _and_ your hubby. Patriots, that's what!

This all looks so odd from afar - and us, with our Welsh-born ladypart owing PM :)
*feeling slightly smug I'll admit*

cookiecrumb said...

Zoomie: It's sick, but yesterday we couldn't stop grinning over the news. Republicans are self-destructing in such an amusing way.

Mouse: I'm sure it looks bizarre from afar, and yes, I guess we really are this f-ed up.
Didn't know your lady was Welsh born. You still liking her? (It's shameful, but in Amurrica, one has to work hard to find news about Oztralia.)

Wow! Now there's a haircut.

Good. Riddance.

And racism is mostly what it amounts to, sadly. If it were only simply a matter of politics...

cookiecrumb said...

Marie: Actually, I'd love for the idiocy to continue so we can see how far they'll sink.

Meg: It's been racism, disguised, all along. So glad this is coming into the light of day.

Robin Williams quipped it best on twitter this week by saying: Obama should show Trump his birth certificate when Trump shows him his hairline!
Such silliness, we really need a woman to cut through this bs and get us back on focus!

Little Pots: I have a motto, and I bet you do too. "The world would be a better place if everybody just ran things by me first."

Thank you for posting that photo of Mr. All About Me. The photo made my day. Week. Month. Year.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

BK: Sally, it's been a little too much fun. Thank YOU!

Ms Brown Mouse said...

I still like her, it seems just about everyone else hates the poor thing though. Pollytics eh?
