Dependable Erection

Holy fuck

From the Dallas Morning News Trailblazer blog:
While a number of speakers -- such as Railroad Commission chairman Michael Williams and Mike Huckabee -- have praised the advance of Barack Obama and what it means towards a colorblind society, at least one vendor hasn't gotten the message.

At the Republican state convention, a booth hosted by Republicanmarket was selling a pin Saturday that says: If Obama is President will we still call it the White House.

I'm speechless.

. . . just to be clear, the problem is not that someone printed up a button like this, or that people are willing to buy it and wear it. We expect that. the problem is that this was being sold by an official vendor at the Texas Republican state convention, the Texas State Republican committee says that had they known about it, they would not have allowed its sale during the convention, and not a single conventioneer thought it objectionable enough to say something about it.

Not one single delegate to the Texas Republican convention so much as gave this a second thought.

  • Once people are not so sensitive about such meaningless crap.....white jokes are okay........race relations will take a great step forward.

    How can something be offensive if it does not offend anyone?

    People worried about a harmless pin while revs are preaching hatred, Durham's black power structure tries to railroad 3 innocent young men and white DATA employees have to fear for there job.

  • I've been waiting for this one, though I'm not sure which group is supposed to be offended. Perhaps several?

  • You know what i just realized, TR? You're too fucking stupid to comment on my blog.

    Go join your friend LB and start your own fucking blog.

    All of your comments will be deleted from now on.

  • A part of me is going to miss your peanut gallery. But you're right -- that last comment by TR was about as dumb as they come.

  • Just to be clear, i actually like offensive shit. The more offensive, the better. For example, this video.

    but if the Democrats contrived to show it, or make it available to the public, at the state convention in New Bern this weekend, that would be troublesome.

  • I was hoping you would link to that video. I almost couldn't stop laughing yesterday when I watched the version that was sort of bleeped that Watertiger linked to.

  • I've been debating posting that video. It's one of the funniest things i've seen all year. But i really don't want to turn into the "As seen on Atrios" site. If you know what i mean.

    what do you all think? Front page the "John McCain called his wife a c*nt" video?
