Colin Powell's Totally Black

Colin Powell is this week's whipping boy, and I mean that totally in a race-related way. See, Dick Cheney released his book this week in which he misremembers and revises recent history in order set the record crooked should the small amount of evil still keeping him alive dissipate and leave him an unanimated corpse before long.

So he apparently takes some cheap shots at Powell because under the Bush administration, Boy didn't quite know his place and sometimes spoke up against Massa Bush or Massa Cheney. And so Powell, this weekend, said Cheney was taking cheap shots.

Ooohh, no, Coli, don'ts a-bee talkin' that strooong talks!

Seriously, the result of this single statement has the entirety of right wing radio Murica blasting the hell out of Colin Powell - not on the merits of anything he said, grant you, but on the fact that he said anything.

And what did race-baiting, foreign-boy-viagra-banging, blubber-puss Rush Limbaugh have to say? That Powell will vote for Obama again because "melanin is thicker than water."

I shit you not.



I don't need to say it because you're already seeing it: this election is going to be the ugliest many of us have ever seen in our lives.

Color me shocked!!! Not!!!! Rush was just being his fat-assed ignorant self. What galls me is that he still has an audience. Colin Powell has more brains in his pinky that Rush has in his entire corpulent body.

Has Rush ever been arrested or just taken down a notch for his enormous stash of drugs? Most of us would be shoveling coal in the outlands forever, if we even thought of anything like that.

I got to say you have a firm grasp of politics. My husband and I lived through Lyndon Johnson's campain and elections. There was somethng about folks who voted even though they were in the cemetery. And then there was Billy Sol Estes and the one about a fellow shot himself five times in the back with a bolt action rifle and it was ruled a suicide.
