    The mayor of Arlington Tennessee has officially "jumped the shark"! You can't make this stuff up! At first I thought this was a fictional story from The Onion, but no it is REAL.

    Russell Wiseman, Tennessee Mayor, Assails 'Muslim President' For Pre-Empting 'Peanuts'

    ....."
    In case you didn't know, President Barack Obama's West Point address, in which he announced his intention to escalate the war in Afghanistan, pre-empted the broadcast of A Charlie Brown Christmas on ABC. As it turns out, at least one person was crackpotted enough to believe that the whole point of the address was to prevent this cartoon from being shown. That person is Arlington, Tennessee Mayor Russell Wiseman. He actually exists. And he made the mistake of bleating out his strident, weird take on the matter on Facebook, and is acting all aggrieved that people noticed.
    His Facebook message read in part:
    Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim [sic] president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation [sic] about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'....

    If I would have known adults had the ability of being this stupid, I would have suggested to all my nieces and nephews to stay at seventeen.

    "Just imagine the scene in the Situation Room -- the President, with his secret Muslim agenda, Pentagon officials and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, pouring over the holiday T.V. schedule to determine what would be the perfect day to announce they were sending 30,000 more soldiers into harm's way and to fuck over Russell Wiseman's kids."

    Has the stop animation version of Berle I'ves' Rudolph shown in the northern climes, yet?

    The Squeeze and I are loafing about in Oaxaca, México for the next few months helping the rather interesting Indeginous folks who still speak Nahuat'l get $100 entrepreneur start up loans for small folk craft businesses. Weather is in the mid to high 80s F, mid to high 70s at night. Full sun. No humidity (none, zip, nada). And the idea of evangelical whackoos in the USA is so far from our radar we should be embarrassed (but were not).

    Maybe the Tennessee Mayor will have a near death experience and convert to the B'Hai faith?

    Well, someone here (as I can recall) DID claim black folk have "cornered the market" on fried chicken. Apparently more that a few think so.

    Interesting pieces from the article:


    "Sen. Marble knew that was she was saying was racist, but she didn’t care. The Republican Party now contains some elected officials officials who view racism as good politics."


    Racism is GOOD politics. How 'bout that?


    "Contrary to what the Supreme Court said when they gutted the Voting Rights Act, racism is alive, well, and [a] full blown part of Republican politics. America is seeing proof of it every single day."

    industrialsize, what do expect from rural Tennessee? another Al Gore. not likely. sadly, were talking about truly ignorant people, who, as Obama correctly said, "cling to their guns and their religion". reality and facts have little use in the their lives.

    the sign on the edge of that town should read :"WELCOME TO CRACKERLAND".

    They sure are ignorant, that they sure do be.

    About as ignorant as folks replying as if it were today to folks who started threads over three years ago.

    I sure am glad that stereotypes denigrating entire swaths of the population because of where they live and the color of their skin is accepted here at LPSG. Maybe all those "Crackers" will learn them sumpt'n from you tolerant and mighty intellectuals over in Cali.
