The man's a genius. Can't thank him enough for all he's doing for 2010 Dems.

As I grow older and my bones start to creak, I find myself trying hard to be fair. Sure, Tancredo is a racist loser pinhead from the discredited nativist wing of the GOP, but let's remember the Democrats have...

And then I can't finish the sentence. There may be crooks like Blago and jellyfish like Pelosi, but for heartfelt comments that will offend a major voting bloc again and again with no ability to shut the hell up and stop the bleeding already, Our Side doesn't have a Tom Tancredo.

I'm glad he's rooting all my people--even the stupid ones who still claimed to be repuglican--out of his party. They were embarrassing me to no end.

tom will always have the masochists to call his own.

fitting.

Tancredo? Doesn't that mean "impotent whitebread bastard" in Spanish?

Sue J said...

Yeah, what kind of name is "Tancredo," anyway?

Is this some Hispanic self-loathing thing he's got going on here?

My espanish is rusty, but if you were to yell out, "Tan credo!" in East LA or East Harlem, you might be saying, "What a system of beliefs!" If you did it with a silly face on and a rim shot after, you'd be saying it sarcastically.

Thing is they are always upstaging one another. G. Gordon Liddy has just blown Tancredo off the front page with what he said about Sotomayor.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Oh, you mean that she might get her period and blow up the world? That Liddy statement?
I guess he doesn't realize that women her age probably don't menstruate anymore...
