His first comment:
How can Obama juggle being president and a Black Man?
Intersted (sic) in hearing comments on this issue!
I mean really how can a black man handle being president?
We all know that it would be IMPOSSIBLE for a mom to be VP...right?
A My Left Wing regular responds:
what do you think
the problems would be that need juggling? What is it about being a Black man that you think conflicts with being president? Is there some job or policy about which Obama will have to say, "You know, Joe, I'm a Black man, so i can't do this one. You'll have to take it?"
Give us a guideline by outline the problem as you see it for us. Please.
To which I respond, with my usual irrepressible aplomb:
That giant swinging cock will get in the way, of course.
Everybody knows that.
And the possibly syphilitic troll comes back, using those tactics they probably teach in Seminars for Conservatives Who Blog:
Giant swinging cock
Well it might be more pleasing to the interns!! But see that's a positive...this thread is here to explore the negatives of being a black man and trying to juggle responsibilities.
Could it that black men are inferior to the rest of the population? You know similarly to being a women and having children...women can't multitask and juggle responsibility like a white man can..as this has been pointed out so very well in the media since Sara Palin has come on the scene.
Now... here's my response to THAT...
Nobody's buying this ridiculous propaganda you're trying to sell.
Not here, anyway. And while you may be swaying a sizable portion of the mouthbreathing population, I think they were voting for McCain anyway.
I have a challenge for you:
Name ONE major media outlet that has EVER suggested that Sarah Palin would have trouble with the Vice-Presidency because she has children and/or she is a woman.
I dare you.
ONE major media outlet.
Not a BLOG. A MEDIA organisation. Like the New York Times, that BASTION of liberalism? Washington Post? Newsweek, perhaps, or Time? CNN? MSNBC?
You see, my trollish friend, the reason I know you will be unable to meet this challenge, is because no media organisation has ever come close to suggesting that the reason Sarah Palin would be inadequate in the role of the Vice-Presidency is because she is a woman and/or a mother.
The REASON she would be inadequate -- no, SUPREMELY, MISERABLY INCOMPETENT -- in the role of Vice-President is that she lacks even the rudimentary base of knowledge and intellect required of someone in such a role.
Even if we forget for a moment that the Vice-President actually does have other responsibilities, let's focus on the one that has MOST people concerned about Sarah Palin and the fact that aside from her admittedly acute zingers in that speech the other night, most of the rest of it sounded like Wikipedia facts recited by a junior high student aiming for a good grade in debate class:
The primary role of the Vice-President of the United States of America is Being Prepared to Become the President of the United States of America at a Moment's Notice. You know -- Leader of the Free fuckin' WORLD? Finger on the Button? Walk into the G8 and command worldwide respect?
And this country -- and the rest of the world -- knows Sarah Palin isn't prepared to become President of a Wal-Mart, let alone this country.
Something Republicans seem to forget is that we are coming to the end of EIGHT YEARS of a disastrous Administration headed by a person with EXACTLY that kind of a glaring, gaping defect of intellect and skill-set.
Sarah Palin is GEORGE W. BUSH WITH A VAGINA. And the VAGINA isn't the problem. The PROBLEM... is three feet higher.
On behalf of the majority of the nation, I'd just like to say...
"Thanks, but No Thanks for THIS Bridge to Nowhere."
