and this gem from Dailykos (which I usually don’t quote)
Rick Perry grew up in a sundown town. As James Loewen exhaustively and masterfully documents, there were thousands of these communities across the country where blacks (and in some cases Jews, Mexicans and other non-whites) were not allowed to live, journey through, or be present in after dark. These towns were often created by racial violence and the wholesale ethnic cleansing of non-whites through murder, forced exile, rape, banishment, theft, and violence.
Mr. Sullivan added that neither the governor nor his family ever “owned, controlled or managed” the property, which he said was owned by a Texas charity called the Hendrick Home for Children. A Hendrick employee said on Sunday that she was not aware of the name and referred questions to her boss, who did not respond to a phone call seeking comment.
In an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, Wallar Overton, the son of Mr. Perry’s scoutmaster in his home county of Haskell, said the hunting camp had always been known by that name.
“It’s just what it was called from Day One,” Mr. Overton said. “I personally am not offended by the name, and I don’t like the word.”
“That’s just what people call it,” he said.
Davis on his radio show this am said that the name of the leased hunting lodge was not noticed or was no big deal to those who came to the ranch. The name was still visible. So what does that say about white people in Texas? It does not matter? It’s the name of a chewing tobacco? It was used back in the day? Is this the race card played by Herman Cain as alleged by Mark Davis?
Somebody knows something. My guess is that when they saw the name on the stone the “head” they probably laughed about it. That’s what people do when they are uncomfortable. If they did not own the place then they could not remove the rock, given. But it sounds like if it were still visible they need to cover it with something. That’s my take.
Herman Cain gave Amanpour an earful when he said what she skirted in her question about Perry and his hunting ranch bought in the 1980s that had a big rock that was painted over. Cain said I’ll say what you won’t it was called “Niggerhead” and it was painted over but we don’t know when.
I told you I would not vote for anyone from Texas because they are the best racists I’ve ever seen. Subtle but real racism. They love illegals down here in Texas and don’t buy any other excuse as to why we are overrun with them. They don’t want anybody who is black to come and work for them or fill up their welfare rolls and free hospital services. Just don’t be black, don’t be a nigger in Texas especially in the last century. I am so glad I did not grow up here. I am here now but it takes a lot of shit side stepping to avoid to blatant racism here.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/01/jon-stewart-reacts-to-ant_n_869581.html Jon Stewart’s dirty take on his old roomate’s distinguised member of congress.
Folks the “battle of the bulge” has not been won yet. My take: I think it’s Weiner’s weiner and body in the tweet, that’s clear so far. What’s not clear is how it got out of Weiner’s control. Is hacking a crime? If so then media are asking the question why did you not report it?
What’s not clear is why Weiner won’t come clean about how it got out of his control because clearly it’s he in his gray boxer shorts and engorged phallus. That is not a crime and I don’t think he needs to resign or anything. It’s unseemly to be caught in such an unneeded summer scandal. The magical media tour is not helping the member of congress either. He should shut up or tell the truth.
Ooh this is juicy Jewish gossip where one Jewish rep Cong. Weiner and his own twitter account have gotten out of hand. Another Jew who was following Weiner or his tweets and then Andrew Breitbart who broke the story that was retweeted to him. He did not hack or find the tweet but he did break or publish it on his website Big Breitbart or big something.
It was late Friday night when a Twitter user named “Patriotusa76” retweeted a message from Weiner’s official account that seemed to link to a picture of a man’s underwear with an erection. The tweet from Weiner’s account was directed to the student. Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government site quickly jumped in, with Breitbart himself taking to Twitter to demand that Weiner either confirm or deny that he’d sent the photo himself. “We have much more,” Breitbart wrote.
Weiner, who has since retained a lawyer, says his account was hacked. He tweeted on Saturday that his Facebook page had been hacked too. The student to whom the image was supposedly sent issued a detailed statement to the New York Daily News, denying that she’s ever met or had any involvement with Weiner. “There have never been any inappropriate exchanges between Anthony Weiner and myself,” she wrote, “including the tweet/picture in question, which had apparently been deleted before it reached me.” source: war room at Salon the first link below.
Anyway the question is was this a hack job or was it a prank by facebook and twitter. Breitbart thinks a full investigation should be made. The woman who received it was a young black girl. The dirt goes that Congressman Weiner is supposed to be into really, really young gals.
I missed it maybe you did.

Update: Okay whether or not Andy is gay is not official. So what it got your attention. Besides Jewish men are over-represented in the gay department. It looks like AB might get another 15 minutes of fame thanks to breaking the weinergate story. AB took the spotlight and the mic to trumpet that he was right…again. Good for you because a certain congressman (congress also means contact and can be used in sexual congress in case you didn’t know it) but a Congress man named Weiner got his dick handed to him, or rather he posted it online to twitter. Even I don’t know how to post pics to twitter!
Good job Andy, keep it up.
Breitbart.com is the latest creation from the creator of Huffpo, or one of them. He is a proud queen. And a Polish-Jew who touts himself as a conservative. Many of Heloise’s articles from bc were picked up by Breitbart.com and distributed all over the Web…thank you for that.
Here’s a sample from his pulldown menu: http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/
But he is cracking under the weight of his own celebrity . Dailykos has this video segment wherein he engages in ad hominen attacks on everybody. He wants to know why the Von Brunn should be a Right wingnut instead of a left wingnut. Von Brunn hates conservatives, therefore he is a lefty, doesn’t wash with me.
Andy, can I call you that? Is also cannibalizing his own Polish Jewish people. Andy is a Hollywood hater but Hollywood rose from the ashes of the Holocaust. See how many letters they have in common? This guy really does not know what he is, so he’s gay. Oh boy.
Did he help slant the lean of Huffpost to the right? That’s a good question. He had a hand in its development and many think that she is really not the lefty she claims. She started as a Republican a RINO, who has only ONE black on her staff. She gets the coup de grace award.

Even before I got the word that Judge Sonia Sotomayor was the pick, I wrote that any Latina will get shot down by dems and repubs alike. Then I read that yes dems have rejected Hispanics before for SCOTUS. Obama was going to pick this woman from getgo. I told him to ignore the repub rebut about not taking enough time to find HER.
Obama could go through three candidates like Bush. Politico payback is a bitch. Dailykos looks back at the 1998 vote.
Then I have a problem with her as a Latina, not looking up from my Cuban roots, but how others might see it who are Mexican. I am part Cuban and many relatives are PRs. One size latin does not fit all. Mexicans are way different from PRs and Cubans mostly because PRs and Cubans tend to have more black blood and internecine matings with blacks, whereas Mexicans think they are a race apart.
Mexicans are not mixed with black for the most part. They are from Mexico, different countries, different people.
Anyway, like Harriet Meyers she won’t get confirmed, I predict. I’ve been wrong before, but not too often.
