Seems like, wherever Democrats are in the majority, they start talkin' succession.

Don't make us come up there and kick your asses. Again.

Update: Look, often times when someone refers to Republicans as "The Party of Lincoln", some smarty pants Democrat says "Actually, today's Republican party would be unrecognizable to President Lincoln."

That may or may not be true.

However, I believe that Lincoln would definitely recognize today's Democrats:

During the American Civil War (1861-1865), the Copperheads nominally favored the Union and strongly opposed the war, for which they blamed abolitionists, and they demanded immediate peace and resisted draft laws. They wanted Lincoln and the Republicans ousted from power, seeing the president as a tyrant who was destroying American republican values with his despotic and arbitrary actions.

I wonder if Aliza Shvarts knows how evil she is?

Thank God, this appears to have been an intentional hoax.

Notes from a Post-Racial America

Disorderly Conduct?

This past weekend, Linda Ramirez-Sliwinski — a Carpentersville, Illinois village trustee elected as an Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention — was encouraged by the Obama campaign to resign for inflammatory speech. Ramirez-Sliwinski did not assert that America was run by hate groups. She did not state that the country deserved terrorist attacks; nor did she indict our government with conspiracy theories of racial genocide. And she didn’t try to goad followers into snuffing out a man’s life for running a legal business she does not like.

What Ramirez-Sliwinski did do was tell children to stop playing in a small magnolia tree “like monkeys.” The two children are African-American. The mother of one of the two children called the police over the slight, which Ramirez-Sliwinski insists was not racial in nature. Ramirez-Sliwinski was issued a citation for disorderly conduct, even though she claimed to have acted on behalf of the safety of the boys.

When I was growing up, kids were routinely called "monkeys." It's a reference to size, and noisiness, and a propensity to climb.

Ann Coulter (whose opinions, I am now obliged to write, I do not entirely share [as if there is anyone whose opinions I entirely share], but who I nevertheless find frequently amusing) writes:

[L]et's revisit the story about Obama's grandmother being guilty of thinking like a "typical white person." As recounted in Obama's autobiography, the only evidence that his grandmother feared black men comes from Obama's good-for-nothing, chronically unemployed white grandfather, who accuses Grandma of racism as his third excuse not to get dressed and drive her to work.
