Cassie Wallender, a national committeewoman from the Washington Young Republican Federation, then wrote: "Someone please help a naïve Seattle girl out, is Eric's comment a racist slur?" She answered her own question one minute later: "Okay, why is this okay? I just looked it up. ‘It comes from a term baracoons (a cage) where they used to place Africans who were waiting to be sent to America to be slaves.' THIS IS NOT OKAY AND IT'S NOT FUNNY."

This was followed soon after by the chairman of the D.C. Young Republicans, Sean L. Conner, who wrote "I'm really saddened that you would support this type of racial language. ..wow! Thanks Cassie for standing up…"
And then got unfriended for the effort.

If that entire story is a prototype for the Shithead Neo-KKK subdivision of the Republican Party marginalizing themselves once and for all, in the full view of the public eye, I'm 110% in support. The two Young Republicans who called out those racist idiots will find plenty of friends worth having on their own.

Jeez, they're really grabbing at straws. I would encourage everyone who likes to laugh at the right-wingers to check out this HBO doc, Right America Feeling Wronged. Good Stuff.

Last week, I think, someone suggested making it into a weekly series. It'd be a fascinating and entertaining glimpse into paranoia and other delusions.

Fox & Friends wants in on the racist fun:
BROWN HAIRED GUY: We keep marrying other species and other ethnics--

GRETCHEN CARLSON: Are you sure they are not suffering from some of the causes of dementia right now?

BROWN HAIRED GUY: The problem is the Swedes have pure genes. They marry other Swedes, that's the rule. Finns marry other Finns; they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody. We will marry Italians and Irish.

DAVE BRIGGS: This study does not apply?

BROWN HAIRED GUY: Does not apply to us.

[pause]

DAVE BRIGGS: Huh.

Aww, c'mon guys. It's unfair to compare these nutjobs to Hoy. Especially since, apart from pooping, banging Asian chicks is Hoy's biggest passion.

I'm just giving him the business.

Also, Jon, the subjunctive is "were."

I know. I was giving him the business too. Since he likes to deny his deep-rooted desire to bang Asians.

If he ran into a redheaded Asian praising Terry Chimes while wearing a Springsteen T-Shirt, his head would explode.
