A poem for the morning:
Republicans are funny folks
They like to laugh at racist jokes…
But make a joke about their guys
And they will tell you “It’s all lies.”
Perhaps the thing their humor lacks
are ways of getting votes from blacks.
When Obama impersonator Reggie Brown took the stage Saturday at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, the audience howled as he joked about how he only celebrates half of Black History Month and that his mother loved a black man, “but she was not a Kardashian.” They were practically rolling in the aisles at a bit about how presidents age in office, in which a stylish “before” photo of President Obama and the first lady was followed by an “after” photo of actors Redd Foxx and LaWanda Page playing Fred Sanford and Aunt Esther from Sanford and Son.
But when Brown started in on the 2012 Republican candidates — he said Newt Gingrich‘s campaign is dropping “like Anthony Weiner‘s pants in an AOL chat room,” and that Tim Pawlenty could turn to “Obamneycare” for the spinal transplant he needs — Brown got the hook and was walked off the stage by a party official.

A Leadership Conference… give me a break.
And I thought Rick Santorum was the Stupidest Governor in America.
Now I see it is a Republican disease that infects both of them.
