Another GOP Official Caught Forwarding Racist Obama Email
I won't post the picture - way too offensive. If you want to see it, please go to the link.

http://gawker.com/#!5792843/another-gop-official-caught-forwarding-racist-obama-email

This week's casual racist: Orange County Republican Party central committee member Marilyn Davenport.

Davenporta "Tea Party activist" (aren't they all?)emailed the image, accompanied by the caption "Now you know why no birth certificate," to several fellow conservatives. Prominent Orange County Republicans, including the party's current chair Scott Baugh, have denounced the email in no uncertain termsBaugh called it "despicable" and "dripping with racism"but Davenport says she won't resign. And also that she has "friends who are black." (In Orange County? Is she sure about that?) And also that there is a "double standard" about President Obama.

1. Teabaggers are simply
too fucking stupid for words. How in the hell could you not see the "downside" in emailing an image like that, it's just beyond belief?

3. Did she forward that e-mail to her 'black friends?'
I'd bet a year's salary against it.

5. To be fair, we on the left portrayed Bush as a chimp.
But he did in fact look like a monkey.

Bush not being black, makes that possibly mean, but not racist.
It was funny though. A buddy and I were laughing at a family group at our Eagles Lodge awhile back. Notoriously loud obnoxious drunks. I commented that it was really like watching some Animal Planet show on primate behavior.
Their dad is you classic "life of the party" drunken idiot. You would not need anyone to tell you who his son and daughter are if you were there. Aside from the family resemblance, they couldn't be bigger chips off the ol' block behavior wise.
I called them "papa cackling ass", "jr. cackling ass" and "sissy cackling ass". Watching this bunch is hilarious. A lot like the chimp pics, that compared pics of Bush with similar facial expressions. Nothing racist about that at all.

7. She lives in the town I grew up in right down the street from an old high school friend.
I'm afraid I was raised in deepest darkest Orange County.
I had no idea about the political tone back then.
My Mom raised me to be liberal. (My Dad was R though)

8. Scott Baugh?!? Lest we forget...
In the last six weeks, three Orange County political operatives have been indicted on charges stemming from the continuing probe of alleged campaign irregularities connected with the Allen recall. Those indicted include Baugh, who is charged with four felonies and 18 misdemeanors, all arising from his successful campaign to replace Allen. Three more GOP operatives, including a Pringle aide, have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from their role in putting Democrat Laurie Campbell on the ballot, to siphon off votes from another Democratic candidate.

10. Red Rose Tea!
I loved those commercials when I was a kid.

As a device, the photo is pathetic.
