Oh, No! Ku Klux Klan Won’t Endorse Obama!

with 3 comments

KKK meets St Peter Huffpo’s Michael Gene Sullivan has spun the funniest satire I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a classic political humor piece at a moment in history that has us tearing out our hair in frustration at the bizarre nonsense that’s passed off with a straight face (eg., Bill Clinton claims the media have covered up the real chances Hillary has of winning).

Go check it out – save it for your grandkids. Here’s just a tiny bit:

In a surprising move, which some are calling a deathblow to his candidacy, the Ku Klux Klan today decided to not endorse Senator Barack Obama in his bid for the Presidency of the United States. […]

At his armed camp outside of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, Imperial Grand Wizard Gomer Bath explained […] “for myself it really came down to health care.” […]

From his National Headquarters/Mother’s Knitting Room in Kudzu, Alabama, Intergalactic Majestic Dragon, and two-time winner of the “Hit a Black Man with a Stick When He’s Not Looking and Run Away” Championship, Chester Podgorney agrees. “Obama’s rhetoric and speeches of Hope and Understanding have not won the hearts and minds of my vast Army of Fearless Race Warriors.” […]

“Senator Obama’s representation of armed, unemployed fanatically religious small town racists as bitter is exactly the sort of out of touch comment we’ve come to expect from his kind. Of politician.” […]

Noting her strength with the broad swaths of people who have no intention of actually voting for her, Senator Clinton also feels Obama’s weakness with people who hate both of them with a passion should give unpledged superdelegates pause. […]

Ah, what delight. Sink into my mind, O sensible Satire! Remind me again: foolishness looks like foolishness because it’s foolishness.

Cheers!

  1. Good question, and I can only guess! Rumor is that Edwards isn’t interested, but may be very interested in becoming the Attorney General, the chief prosecutor of the USA (at which he would be truly outstanding!).

    Biden is high on the list, I’d guess, for he answers the foreign policy experience attack. But Obama’s feeling is that he does his best at foreign policy, so he may well pick another direction. I don’t think there is an obvious choice. Many favor Dodd, some favor Webb of Virginia, some Richardson of NM. Some favor Kathleen Sibelius, governor of Kansas. I’m stumped. But I think he will choose someone of whom we’ll be saying in a while, “Oh, I get it.”

    I doubt that Hillary is seriously in the running. Her methods are so contrary to his that I think, given his transparency theme, she would be a hypocritical choice. And I think her supporters will be madder at McCain than they are at Obama in a little while.

  2. So who should Obama go with as his running mate? Knowing virtually nothing about US politics, I would say Edwards.
