You only had to watch the Citizen McCain concession speech and the Smooth Barack acceptance speech to realize that Republicans are some small, petty, bitter a$$ folk. At the mention of Smooth's name Tuesday night, the McCain faithful immediately broke out the boos and needed to be quieted by Citzen like a daddy talkin' to his ill-behaved child. Contrast that ruckus to Smooth Barack mentionin' Citizen's name (to a crowd over 200,000 strong). No boos, just a smattering of applause and a disciplined adherance to that adage we all learned in kindergarten - 'If you have nothing nice to say, then say nothing'. Smooth's 'bitter' comment was correct, y'all. It was just applied to the wrong segment of society. That segment is clearly the hard core Republican base. Ill mannered, ill behaved - truthfully that crew is just straight ill...
And those boos? That was the chariable stuff spewin' out of the red camp. Lately I've heard the conservative talkin' heads tryin' to excuse, or in some cases challenge the veracity of, all the hate talk buzzin' in those Say-Pay rallies during the closing days of the campaign. You know the ones. The ones where fools in the crowd were hollering 'Terrorist', 'Kill him' and all other crazy a$$ things at the mention of Smooth's name. Say-Pay didn't try to curb the crowd's hooligan behavior - instead she did her best to feed it. At every rally she stepped her 'Wasilla Hillbilly' behind into, she catered to the basest emotions of supporters who were obviously low brow troglodytes. Now the details are in on just how dangerous that tomfoolery was. Newsweek's behind the scenes report revealed that:
"The Obama campaign was provided with reports from the Secret Service showing a sharp and very disturbing increase in threats to Obama in September and early October, at the same time that the crowds at Palin rallies became more frenzied. Michelle Obama was shaken by the vituperative crowds and the hot rhetoric from the GOP candidates. 'Why would they try to make people hate us?' Michelle Obama said to a top campaign aide"
Exactly, 'Chelle. Why would they try to make people hate you? And just why, despite such dangerous and reckless behavior, does Say-Pay even remain popular among anybody? In my view, you're a reflection of the company you keep so what's that say about Say-Pay? Here's what ol Ty has to say - SEE YA, Elle May! Your exit from the public stage came about two months too late.
P.S. And while I'm bashin' yo a$$ Say-Pay - thanks alot for the stock market drop yesterday! ABC News reported that retail sales were the lowest since 1969. Big losers? Saks down 16.6 % and Nordstrom down 15.7%. Dang, homegirl! This is not the time to stop buying clothes with other peoples' money!
