Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

Take those tired memes and shove ’em


Elated, exhausted and still wired up and fired up from last night’s electoral and popular vote victory for our POTUS, the first thoughts I had this morning were about the unending meme steam those of us in communities of color had to endure through-out the entire election season.  

Yeah. I am sittin’ here gloatin’.

All the TM lame-stream concern trolls masquerading as pundits have now proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that they suffer from anal-rectalitis.

Let’s see.

Remember all the “black people were gonna abandon the President” themes?


Yea, those Latinos sure don’t show up to the polls.  


Don’t forget the ignored Asian-Americans and Native Americans.

More very loud guffaws from my mouth.

As a Sistah, want to thank all those Republican legi-rapers for motivating women of all colors to say NO WAY to Willard.

Too tired to do a sophisticated analysis of the numbers right now. I’m sure there will be plenty time in the days to come, and the yapping class has already started their inane babble this morning, so I have turned off the teevee, and sit here chortling with glee.

Thank you and muchisimas gracias to every single person who got out and voted against a solid wall of Tea-Republican efforts at voter repression and chicanery.  

Yo Romney…I know you are a religious dude.

Well, so are many of us and there is an old saying in the black community:

“God don’t like ugly”.

That’s right.

She doesn’t.

    This has to be my favorite of the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth whining thus far:

    Doomed Beyond All Hope of Redemption

    I have laughed at that dude for years now…he is hoot (insofar as an off his swede winger goes).

    I have to admit to taking some glee in his despair.

    Naughty me.

    I know that having a Democrat in any given seat is preferable to having a Republican. I get that…I really do.


    Does it make me a bad Democrat to have groaned audibly when I found out that Alan Grayson won his race and is again in the House?

    He just rubs me the wrong way.


    I find his over the top clown act an embarrassment.

    Is it just me?

    I can breath again. And laugh. There were so many hysterical moments from last night, courtesy of our good friends at fox and the blubbering of the likes of Mitch McConnel, I might just shake loose this dark cloud that has been pestering me for the last couple of years. I am fairly certain that I would have gone insane if I had to look at that man’s face for four years. It would appear that America agrees with me.

    Once again tho, I must stress that NOW THE WORK BEGINS!!!!! We must get off our butts and support our President. He cannot do this alone and the Congressional Democrats will still be a bunch of spineless shits unless we the people make them do their job!!!

    Ooph. Rant over for the moment. But beware, I have a new bone to chew and I am not gonna let despair kick me down the stairs again. Heh. Did that sound scary enough;~???

    Oh and by the way, I am chortling, giggling and laughing right along with you Sistah Denise. I am toasting you with my cupa and just enjoying the moment for now.

  4. Every pundit that was horrifyingly blindingly wrong must wear a dunce cap for six months in order to keep their job.

    Punditry lost this election.  Sitting in New York or Washington talking about the desires of Black people when you don’t know any well enough to know their middle name. Talking about the covenant females have with their God and unborn children when they have no womb to establish it.  

    The southern strategy lost this election for the first time ever they rolled out the big gun and America rejected it.

    to make their vote count. In Michigan if your in line for more than 15 minutes you just have very poor timing. And we have no early voting. Looking at pictures of the lines in Ohio and Florida is mind boggling. Are the citizens of theese states not embarrassed?

    Overheard one mother lamenting that they would just have to get by for four more years.  Other woman replied, “God willing.” I giggled inside.  Suck it ladies.

    The Romney campaign certainly wound-up efficiently:

    Aides taking cabs home late [election] night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

    “Fiscally conservative,” sighed one aide the next day.
