2012-06-08 12:13:07 PM  
Everyone kept saying he was blah. I thought that meant he was a vampire.
 
2012-06-08 12:14:12 PM  
Wait. The President?! I thought he was the butler! Fark that!
 
2012-06-08 12:19:56 PM  
All this time I thought they were saying "the President is near"

Maybe hes just a fan of tanning beds?
 
2012-06-08 12:22:03 PM  
He's black? But he's so well-spoken!

/What? That's not racist! In fact, I have a black friend...
 
2012-06-08 12:23:00 PM  
It's not a silent issue, just ask Donald Trump.
 
2012-06-08 12:27:55 PM  
So, they get it?

Also, angry black man:

I guess they forgot to caption that was from the Veteran's Day memorial.

And just look at this sweetheart:

Because before no one knew he was a black asshole, they just thought he was black... But now the tables have turned, right, Daily News? Oh how the tables have turned!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! HE'S BLACK!!!!

You know, gas prices have been dropping like a rock around here- I filled up for 3.29 the other day.

I thought the Daily News was the liberal NYC tabloid?

So, if I gather from the article, the Race Card and Mormon Card cancel each other out, which is a net gain for Romney since Obama can't hit him with the race card. This frees Romney to just repeat the unemployment rate and price of a gallon of gas all summer long.

/Mormonism is the race card deflector shield
//not quite the trump card the retard card and gay card are, though

ftfa: "You know what race does in this election?" an old Kennedy Democrat I know is saying on Thursday. "It takes Mormonism off the board.

Wow! I think I really underestimated how much people dislike Mormons.

This article makes no sense. People only voted for Obama the first time out of white guilt and sense of historicalness but now he's at least as threatening racially as a Mormon is religiously? Astute analysis.

Eh, kinda/sorta. They speak to the economically liberal/socially conservative who also love Iran saber-rattling.

But why is Fark giving self-important clowns like Lupica a global reach? Bad enough that we have to put up with the pompous "I tell it like it is!" BS.

Obama's going to lose because he's black. But voters aren't racist. It's also because he sucks. But because he's black.

I'm extremely conservative, hate liberals, and am a bit wary of minorities but I voted for Obama as an experimental test of the progressive notion of Affirmative Action. Turns out Obama sucks and AA truly is a terrible idea. But I learned my lesson and will never vote for a black person again no matter what.

I was totally with you until you ripped on Alcoholics Anonymous. Deal breaker right there.

I kinda scratched my head, too. According to TFA, the voters' thought-process will be: "In 2008 I voted for the black guy because the time had come to ignore race when it came to choosing a president. But now, in 2012, that time has passed, & this guy is black."
 
2012-06-08 01:51:47 PM  
Unlike 2008, race works against President this time in a big way

fark reading the article. With a sub-header like that, there's no way that article isn't retarded.

Even a black conservative?

They don't exist. Black conservatives are things parents invent to scare their children, like the boogeyman, vampires and Michael Jackson.

I think what the writer meant was voters were willing to vote for a black guy because the economy was in sorry state, but since things haven't miraculously changed voters will want to get rid of him. It's just the long-winded way of saying, "last to be hired, first to be fired."

Dammit. The trickster. Now I'm voting for McCain.

Wow, political advice from Mike Lupica? This is the incredibly stupid baseball writer, yes?

Because, wow.
 
2012-06-08 07:16:31 PM  
You want to know why George W. Bush is still the only living former President with an approval rating under 50%?

Because once he's out of office he can't change his approval rating?

I also get my political advice from Art VanDelay - he's an obscure writer, beatnik, from the Village.

I was watching the Goonies at my cousin's house and their pre-teen daughter freaked out when Mouth says that Chunk had claimed that Michael Jackson had showed up at his house to use the bathroom.

"Running against [..] A terrible candidate or Sarah Palin"

You say that like they're mutually exclusive.
