You've Come A Long Way Baby

The Republican Party has come a long way since Earl Butz uttered these famous words in 1976:
"The only thing the coloreds are looking for in life are tight p - - - - , loose shoes and a warm place to s - - -."
Such a statement would be unthinkable today. Afterall it was delivered in private to a few others. What a primative time the 1970's were. Unlike yesteryear, when only a select few could share in the laughter, today's Republicans use modern technology to help spread the racism around. Way to go boys! The Republican Party means progress!

  1. Rush Limbaugh isn't racist, and neither is the song.

    Of course, it was stupid to include it on anything from the party.


    As for RNC chair, I'm for Steele.

  2. Rush Limbaugh isn't racist, and neither is the song.

    To paraphrase Chevy Chase (who said this about Earl, who also claimed he was no racist): Rush doesn't judge a man by the color of his skin, but by the thickness of his lips.

  3. No, he judges a man by the redness of his ideology.

    As a semi-regular listener (fairly regular till the first week of November, after which I've tuned out of American politics for a bit), I know precisely where Limbaugh is coming from.
