Tonight’s category is Outstanding Achievement in Race Baiting, and the nominees are:


Original movie poster

Mark Williams–who can forget Mark’s letter to Abe Lincoln from “Colored People?”

We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

When you’re too racist for the Tea Party, you’re really a racist!

Dr. Laura SchlessingerN-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word, N-word,!

Glenn Beck–who thinks President Obama has a “deep-seated hatred of white people” and who declared that African-Americans are bogarting the civil rights movement.  Even Cokie Roberts thinks he’s an imbecile.

Sharron Angle–I don’t know why an Asian-American would pick on Hispanics so much.

Rand Paul–he’s not racist, he just hates the Civil Rights Act.

Andrew Breitbart–not-too-Breitbart earns a nod for sponsoring James O’Keefe and his merry band in slandering ACORN and for his efforts in the Shirley Sherrod fiasco.

Tom Tancredo–who has a long record of nasty comments about Hispanics.  Ironically, he looks like someone Jan Brewer and Joe Arpaio would arrest in Arizona.

Haley Barbour–Governor of Mississippi and the Barbour of Incivility has a remarkable ability to put his foot in his mouth for such a portly man.  First, in defense of Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell totally ignoring slavery when he was celebrating Confederate History Month, Haley declared that slavery was bad, but the fuss over ignoring it “doesn’t amount to diddly.”  As his second act, he tried to rewrite his own history, as well as that of race and the South.

Let’s have a round of applause for our nominees.

    Breitbart. What he did to Shirley Sherrod was unforgivable.

    • i’ve decided to recuse myself from voting. i voted yesterday, because i was curious to see how it would all work and look.

      i honestly don’t know who i’d vote for in this category. i don’t know if breitbart has enough conviction about anything to be a true racist. he’s an opportunist, and he doesn’t care who might get hurt along the way. he’d set up his own mother if it would make him a buck.

    It seems racism has been a collective work lately. I can’t pick anyone. Plus, most candidates are more famous for being insane than being racist.

    But I must say Schlessinger found a spectacular way anyone can use to get fired very quickly.

    Is it me or she’s the only one on the list who got fired?

  3. Voted! The tea party should take this award as one person…one of those everybody-ties-for-first situations.

    • so who’d you vote for, melissa? if i had voted, i think i would have voted for the obtuse angle. even though haley barbour comes from a culture where racism was ingrained, i really think the obtuse angle is the one who really embraces bigotry in her heart. i think she’s the most intolerant of that ugly bunch. i think tancredo is a hateful bastard, but i think a lot of his bigotry is just useful politically.

  4. Aha, a trick question – but everybody knows the real answer is Barack Obama, who incited these well-nourished white patriots past the point of sweet reason with his incendiarily milquetoast ways…and it’s only right that he should apologize.

    My vote goes to professional imbecile and serial racist, Glenn Beck.

    However, as a one-time deep sea sports fishing enthusiast, I’m not certain that what Beck does could correctly be called “race-baiting.” In my opinion his forte could more accurate be called “race chumming.”

    • jeb

      I’m with Dimitrios on this. Beck is the worst by far. He could embarass David Duke.

    • i put blechhh in the same camp as breitbart. he has no real convictions, so i don’t know if he can be a true racist, even though he says racist shit. he doesn’t care about anyone of any race, only for himself. he’ll say anything in order to get some attention. same thing for bill0. he’s been blathering lately about muslims, because blechhh has been stealing his spotlight.

      • jeb

        True, but even though there is no doubt he’s a self-aggrandizing, greedy, do-anything-for-fame-and-a-buck asswipe, his ignorance is genuine. He’s so successful at selling fear because he’s truly afraid himself. I think that’s true for all of the nominees but if I have to pick one, Blech goes to the head of the line.

        • i can see voting for blechhh, because, even if his racism stems from selfishness instead of a deep-seated hate, he might deserve the award, because he knows he’s doing harm, and he doesn’t care.

  6. jeb

    I’m with Dimitrios on the. Beck is the worst by far. He could embarass David Duke.

  7. Raisinettes –

    You are soooo lucky to have Nonnie on your side: Imagine having her against you!

    May the worst person win the award, now get voting!

    Rgds,

    Tengrain

    • 😳 awww shucks, tengrain. i said it over at mps, and i’ll repeat it over here. it has been an absolute pleasure working with you, and i would do it again in a heartbeat.

  8. I ended up voting for Tancredo, although all of the candidates deserve this award.

    Also, about my suggestion about an award for “generally stinking up the joint” that I suggested in the previous entry, that award was called “The Busted Urinal” and I most commonly gave it to racists, sexists, homophobes, anti-Semites, and bigots of all stripes. “Outstanding Achievement in Race Baiting” will do just fine for that ilk of ick!

    • i think tancredo would have been my second choice right after the obtuse angle. they’re the most evil of the bunch, imho, even if they might not be the most dangerous.

    will there be a macaca for campaign violence? i think there are at least three noms right now. hell, rand paul could will in multiple categories.

  11. GreenApples

    I had to go for Glenn Beck. He gets a big audience and cheers the others on. I admit that it was a tough choice; so many rats and only one vote!

    • it’s too bad there can’t be a runner-up or an honorable mention, but that’s the way awards work. there can only be one winner, or, in the case of the macacas, one loser.

    A short bio on Haley Barbour’s college day’s and the Vietnam war draft.
    Barbour quit college (Ole Miss) in the spring of 1967 to work for the Nixon campaign for president. He never informed the Selective Service about a change in his status as a student,which kept him free from being drafted! That in itself was a violation of a federal law. A law that required all men to report any changes in their status in the draft to their local draft board.
    Good Ole Boy Haley knew if he had reported he wasn’t a student anymore, he would have won an all expenses paid trip, across the big pond, to VietNam.
    But wait, Barbour all of a sudden was bitten the patriotic bug and informed the Selective Service of a change in his status, 5 day’s after the general election was over on Nov. 10,1967!
    Talk about being patriotic, Haley threw himself into the draft pool and was eventually ordered for a physical in Jan of 1969!
    A physical which he promptly flunked and another in Feb of 1967!
    I’ve never heard any about Haley having any life-threatening ailments that would have kept him from being drafted. Wonder what they could be, maybe he told the Drs. he was a “little light in the loafers,” or had a “limp wrist,” along with a quaint lisp!
    In closing, Barbour never graduated from Ole Miss, but was accepted into The School of Law” at Ole Miss with-out a college degree!

    • nice to see you again, cottonmouth! thanks for the biography of the barbour of incivility. i did a story about him a while ago (i think i linked to it in the post), but i wasn’t aware of all the detail you provide. if he runs for president, and i think he will, watch how all the rethugs will say that all of that doesn’t really mean anything. they love their chickenhawks.

  13. Aunt Snow

    I have to go with Tancredo. He’s been at it a while, and he’s a classic.

    I think Breitbart is an up-and-comer in the catgegory, but there’s gotta be an award more suited to him. Liar, maybe? Self-aggrandizement?

    • i can see the logic in going with tancredo. he really does seem to be a hateful person. i honestly can’t understand how anyone can find him appealing. he’s like deadeye dick cheney without the warmth. 😆

  14. i will go with Tancredo, but also Palin – i think she is closet racist……….

    • i don’t know how princess can have any room left in her closet with all those free rnc clothes, but i would agree that she’s a closet racist. and the closet door is ajar.

  16. There are just TOO MANY of them. It’s like lineing up the NSDAP leader ship and asking which is the worst. All of them!
