To paraphrase a post left on the Newshounds.us Facebook page by former News Hound Headly Westerfield (aka Aunty Em), there is only ONE reason why those "civil," "tolerant" folks at Fox Nation would put up a post called: RUSH: I Was Hoping RNC 'Mystery Speaker' Would Be Obama's Brother Who Lives In A Hut: to use Limbaugh's comments to play the race card - and pretend they were just "telling the facts" of what Limbaugh said. I couldn't agree with Headly more.
By the way, you can visit Headly at his new blog www.notnowsilly.blogspot.com.
I also doubt that anybody belonging to Obama’s immediate family lives in a hut: his father came from a family wealthy enough to pay for university studies abroad, so they probably had air conditioning in the house long before the po’ whites did in Central Florida.
Disclaimer: all the above is speculation based on personal experience. Too lazy to do the research.
@al in la: Somehow, I’m thinking that an awful lot of true republicans are like your father-in-law. My hope is that they will not go against their principles by abstaining.
Think about that for a second.
He says he has never NOT voted republican but this year will be different. “Romney is a damn phony and all they know how to do on Fox [News} is attack, attack, attack Obama. It gets sickening after a while” he says of the party he has supported for nearly 70 years.
My father-in-law continues: “Obama’s got brains and class. He killed that son-on-a-bitch Bin Laden and he makes his own beer. I’d be proud to have him as my son-in-law!” (The last part kind of hurts because I’m married to his only daughter. But still.)
