Republicans for Obama: Thank You Much!










With Election Day just around the corner, shamed Republicans have been eager to jump John McCain’s sinking ship to endorse Barack Obama. The movement began post-Palin and hit a peak when retired General Colin Powell offered his sound endorsement to the senator from Illinois last weekend. Even Scotty McClellan, former White House Press Secretary under Gee Dubya, is voting for the Big O.

Republicans are, therefore, desperate for social acceptance. In fact, the National Black Republican Association really wants you to believe that Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. Beyond the pandering tone of this proclamation is a stink so fierce that it makes my eyebrows melt.

What am I to think? Oh wait, I know: Republicans are willing to affirm a posthumous endorsement from MLK for Obama. Unfortunately, it feels like Republicans have rewritten history on a bathroom stall, as they squeeze John McCain through their puckered butt-cheeks. “For a Good Time Call Sarah Palin” is on the wall, too.

I’m going to go vote today – want to come? I’ll give you a ride.

The Republican Party is just a bunch of white racists. It is filled with a bunch of Angry White Guys (and Gals) who think the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act ruined America because it made it a lot harder for whites from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Italy, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. and made it a lot easier for the Chinese, Indians, Jamaicans, Mexicans, Egyptians, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. What these racists don't GET is that the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act (Thank You Senator Ted Kennedy) greatly increased Diversity in the U.S. which has made OUR Nation stronger and a much more multicultural place to live. Before 1965 Whites of European descent made up 88% of the U.S. population. Now whites only make up 65% of the U.S. population and by 2042 they will only make up 49% of the population. By 2100 Whites of European descent will only make up about 30% of the U.S. population and also by the year 2100 only 3% of the World Population will be White. The 2008 Election is just a turning point in American History though. By the end of this century white Europeans will be out of power in the United States(FINALLY!) and then we can finally end WHITE PRIVILEDGE and can get REAL Affirmative Action, REAL Reparations, REAL Change, and begin to redistribute wealth and property back to those who deserve it. Unfortunately, this won't happen until the White Kids who are in strollers and Elementary School today are in their 60's and 70's. The World is Flat. The white racist Republicans just don't seem to get it!

Today's New Republic online:

Reagan Appointee and (Recent) McCain Adviser Charles Fried Supports Obama

Charles Fried, a professor at Harvard Law School, has long been one of the most important conservative thinkers in the United States. Under President Reagan, he served, with great distinction, as Solicitor General of the United States. Since then, he has been prominently associated with several Republican leaders and candidates, most recently John McCain, for whom he expressed his enthusiastic support in January.

This week, Fried announced that he has voted for Obama-Biden by absentee ballot. In his letter to Trevor Potter, the General Counsel to the McCain-Palin campaign, he asked that his name be removed from the several campaign-related committees on which he serves. In that letter, he said that chief among the reasons for his decision "is the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."

Fried is exceptionally thoughtful and principled; his vote for Obama is especially noteworthy.
