Some Republicans Piss Me Off

I just got done talking to a friend of mine (more of an acquaintance actually) who is a staunch conservative. He told me that John Edwards is a "fake Southerner" and that Barack Obama is the latest line of "race baiters" and just adds to "the urban myth." How wrong he is.  How can a Republican, in all seriousness, accuse John Edwards of being a "fake Southerner" when Mr. GOP himself (you know, that Miserable Failure and waffler) . . . George W. Bush . . . who claims to be the quintessential Texan as he retreats to his ranch to "clear brush." Well, listen up kids, George W. Bush was born in New Haven, graduated from high school at a New England prep school and went to college at Yale and then went to Harvard Business School. I know a lot of Texans, but I don't know any like George W. Bush. So when you say "GO BACK TO CRAWFORD!", you should be saying "GO BACK TO CONNECTICUTT", because God knows we don't need him here in the Lone Star State (we have enough extremists like The Hammer and Goodhair). Finally, how is Barack Obama a "race baiter?" He gave a passionate speech about building "one America" and spoke of the common ground found between the Red States and Blue States. Al Sharpton? Sure, he, at times, might be a "race baiter." Jesse Jackson? Perhaps. But not Barack Obama. I repeat, NOT Barack Obama. We can't put up with this bullshit. We have great candidates and a great message: HOPE IS ON THE WAY! We cannot let people like my friend (the one who calls Edwards a fake southerner and Obama a race baiter) spread their falsehoods and just plain lies. Its our turn to take back America. In the words of Congressman Charles Rangel of New York, "The Revolution has begun, and we will win again!"
