New David Williams busing web ad is very, very white

David Williams released his new radio ad this morning, chastising busing programs in Louisville that send your kids to school with those kids on the other side of the tracks.

And now there’s this new web ad that attacks ripping kids away from their families/communities and shipping them off to those other neighborhoods.

There’s something that all of those families have in common, I just can’t put my finger on it…

King David the 10th(er)

I hadn’t really looked at the David Williams/Throw the Bouncy Ball into the Basket campaign website until today, and boy is there some fun stuff in there.

Like his State Sovereignty/Tenther section:


David and Richie have long records of opposing federal overreach and supporting Kentucky’s sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. As Agriculture Commissioner, Richie Farmer has taken on the Obama Administration’s EPA as it interferes with Kentucky farm families. David Williams strongly opposed the Obama Administration’s health care takeover and asked Attorney General Jack Conway to join a federal lawsuit against it (Conway refused, and now a federal judge has ruled parts of the law unconstitutional). Steve Beshear and Jack Conway have failed to stand up for Kentucky’s rights while the Obama Administration continues to chip away at them with unfunded mandates and anti-growth regulations. For two consecutive legislative sessions, David has promoted a “21st Century Bill of Rights” in the State Senate, which affirms Kentucky’s sovereignty and protects our citizens from federal overreach on key issues (i.e. Obamacare).

The 10th Amendment is of course the good part of the Constitution, unlike the 17th Amendment that lets the dirty rabble choose their own tyrants in the US Senate.

Unfortunately, David doesn’t flaunt some of his best legislation in the issues section, like his Fetal Seance Bill for Sluts and his Worse-Than-Arizona Papers Please immigration bill. David, don’t be so bashful!

However, Williams does flaunt a column by Republican columnist-for-hire John David Dyche that is a fine example of the old saying that comedy isn’t for everyone. In fact, it’s the first link provided on his main page. It’s a “satire” of a leaked Beshear memo. What do we learn?

Too bad Louisville once again has six of the state’s 10 worst-performing schools. We liberals still exalt imposed racial diversity at the expense of academic achievement. Louisville’s self-proclaimed African-American leadership accepts the condescending and incorrect implication that black kids cannot succeed unless they share a classroom with a certain percentage of white kids. Thank goodness!

That’s funny, David. What else?

Williams will get little support for his Arizona-style bill that merely lets local cops check on immigration status in limited circumstances. Luckily, no one seems to care about illegal immigration’s impact on the inordinately high black unemployment rate. Ssshhh!

Oh, it merely does that, nice. And the Mexicans are taking the blacks’ jobs, but not the whites’, very interesting take there.

We had hoped that other Republican (What is his name? Paul Muppet?) might beat Williams or maybe weaken him. But the newcomer can neither raise money nor improve on Williams’ conservative, free-market platform. Those tea party mouth-breathers must actually like Williams!

Moffett does sound like muppet. I remind you, this is the first link on his campaign site.

Finally:

The newspapers have already put a full-court press on Richie. Jerry always gets a free pass!

Interesting, so Williams fully endorses Richie’s spending in the Agriculture department, and only the media has a problem with it? Bold strategy there.

Anyway, to counter King David X, here’s what Steve Beshear’s campaign fires back with on his site:

Oh, they don’t have any content. Literally none.

I’d love to tell you what Steve Beshear plans as an alternative to David Williams’ race-baiting, anti-choice, 10th’er platform, but I literally have no idea. And I’m not being sarcastic at all, I literally have no idea.

Ain’t Kentucky grand?

And why do you keep calling the teabaggers racist?

Answer: because of stuff like this.

The Obama administration has ordered U.S. troops & rescue teams to save Haitians first, while American citizens are dying at hotel Montana. Several American students and faculty members from Lynn University are still trapped under the rubble under the hotel Montana. Several tv and newspaper reporters continue to hear taps from under the rubble.Yet, the 11,000 + U.S. troops are nowhere to be found. Instead, they are busy pulling Haitians from the rubble elsewhere in the city.

It took 6 days until the many of the families of these trapped Americans heard back from the U.S. government. Our government should be locating and saving U.S. citizens before helping the locals in Haiti.

That’s right, folks. The Kenyan Muslin Commie who wants us all to die at the hands of his terrorist allies is telling our rescue crews to leave Americans where they are until they rescue all the Haitians. You know, because they are white and American, the two things that Obama hates, and the Haitians are “dark” like him.

Yes, this is the Lexington Teabagger movement.

NRSC and McConnell need to coordinate their smear campaigns

The NRSC thinks the Harry Reid non-story merits an urgent call for to Jack Conway and Dan Mongiardo to denounce the Senate Majority Leader.

Meanwhile, the Senate Minority Leader really couldn’t give a fuck.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declined Tuesday to follow some of his GOP colleagues who are calling for Sen. Harry Reid to step aside as Senate Majority Leader.

“I think that is an issue for the Democratic conference,” McConnell said at morning press conference at the Capitol.

When pressed by CNN as to whether that means he does not agree with Republicans calling for Reid to be ousted, McConnell simple repeated, “I think that’s an issue for the Democratic conference.”

Yea, when Mitch Friggin McConnell is above a smear camapaign… uh, yea, you may be stretching it.

Then again, there may be another angle to this:

Republican leadership aides, speaking on condition of anonymity in order to speak freely about McConnell’s thinking, suggested McConnell knows its very unlikely Reid will step down as leader, and the two have a good working relationship he wants to maintain.

i.e., Mitch knows that Reid borders the line between spineless and incompetent, and he doesn’t want anybody else taking his place this year.

Yea, I vote for the latter.

More Saltsman spin from the Pauls

So David Adams appears to have lied to Nashville Post reporter A.C. Kleinheider when he said he had “never spoken to” Chip Saltsman. He says to Joe Arnold at WHAS:

Regarding Saltsman, Paul campaign spokesman David Adams acknowledged a “friendly conversation, yes. A job offer absolutely not.” Adams said that includes no consulting work.

Oh, sure, Paul haters are going to call this a lie, but Adams obviously meant that he had a “conversation” in sign language, meaning that he truly did never “speak” with Saltsman. Not that this will stop the Liberty-hating Communists from making up viscious lies about him!

Back in reality, it does appear that “Option #3″ is what happened, as the Paul campaign is ditching any Saltsman collaboration due to feeling the heat on the “racist” label front. But as I’ve said before, while this may hurt him with the non-racist media, it is doubtful that many Kentucky Republicans are going to get up in arms over “Barack the Magic Negro” and “Happy N Day/lynching” jokes. Some, sure, but he’d likely gain more ground among them over this than lose ground. The real fallout from Hightower will be the 9/11 and Christian-bashing stuff, which unlike racist crap will actual matter among KY Republican voters (and actually be used by Grayson).

Via the Great Orange/Brown Satan:

Favorability of Republican Party among Latinos

May 18-21 (before the Sotomayor nomination)

Favorable 11
Unfavorable 79
No Opinion 10

June 15-18 (latest poll)

Favorable 8
Unfavorable 86
No Opinion 6

Latinos and Blacks will be 33% of the voting public in 2012. And Republicans will be getting a…. small slice of the pie. That, of course, being a grand understatement.

But seriously, what do I know? You just keep listening to Rush and Beck and O’Reilly and Hannity and Newt and all the other old white men. I’m sure they know what they’re doing.

Right?

Lost in the race-baiting and homophobia: what, and why, he actually believes. Except that gay people are second-class citizens.

And they wonder why they just got their asses handed to them.

Happy Halloweenis!
