Well played, fine sir:
U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis, a Hebron Republican, compared Obama and his message for change similar to a “snake oil salesman.”
He said in his remarks at the GOP dinner that he also recently participated in a “highly classified, national security simulation” with Obama.
“I’m going to tell you something: That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button,” Davis said. “He could not make a decision in that simulation that related to a nuclear threat to this country.”
Although the McCain/Obama general election fight is bound to get ugly (and I really don’t think McCain himself will stoop to this sort of thing), part of me wishes the Republicans who can’t help themselves would just come right out and call him a nigger and lay it all on the table.
*** Update ***
And before the weak attempts to claim that the use of “boy” was just due to an age differential, let me point out that this casting call reject from O Brother Where Art Thou is 49 years old. Obama is 45.
*** Update #2 ***
Priceless. Now wingnut blogs are accusing me of being racist for using the “n-word.” The projection is astounding. A republican calls Obama “boy,” and an Obama supporter, someone who has contributed to his campaign and fully supports him (that would be me, wingnuts) notes that it will get uglier in the general election and that racists probably will start using the “n-word,” and I am to blame. It really is amazing.
And just so it is fully clear, I despise the “n-word.” Not, however, as much as I despise the people who use it to describe other human beings.
