I’ve had company all day and haven’t been able to blog, but let me just say this quick so that we have it on the record- the fact that I had to watch Melissa Harris-Perry, one of the most fundamentally decent human beings to grace my television, break down and cry because of what someone else said about Mitt Romney’s kid, makes me want to fucking puke. Sure, the comment was offensive, but she didn’t make it, and sometimes people say shit on live tv.
But let’s compare what some jackass said on tv to what Romney and Ryan wanted to do to America and what their policies would have done to African-American children not lucky enough to be adopted by a quarter-billionaire white guy. Or what the party Romney belongs to has done to make sure young Miss Romney has a helluva time voting. And so on.
And that doesn’t even get into the repellant shit that Republicans say on a daily basis. When has Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck or Ron Fournier or Krauthammer or Will or Malkin or Novak or any of the rest of those douchebags and the thousands of others I could list ever apologized? Pat fucking Buchanan made a living for two decades spewing racist and anti-Semitic bullshit on tv, was paid handsomely, and no one ever fucking flinched.
Stop being such damned pushovers, liberals.
