HeartBurnKid: HempHead:  /Chinatown was designed by a white man who had never been to China. Again, I am not saying he did a bad job designing Chinatown or a good job, just repeating a fact you can read about in Wikipedia. But he fooled a lot of naive people, so he succeeded in his ambition.

Which Chinatown are you referring to, Chumley? Because, you know, they're everywhere


All of them, everywhere. The guy was a freaking workaholic. "Honey, come to bed." "Not now, dear, Akron needs a Chinatown."

The Why Not Guy: cman: Not everyone of Latino descent in the United States speaks Spanish

Except the account isn't named GOPLatino or GOPHispanic - it's GOPespanol. Espanol means Spanish, as in the language, not the nationality or ethnic heritage.



And it's kind of funny that they'd have any tweets in Spanish, given their fetish for "English only" laws.

True story, although I think most of you won't believe it. While I was in the Army at my first duty station there were a number of spanish speaking soldiers in my unit that had convinced many others that "pendejo" meant something like "brother" "dude" or "friend".  My coworkers would walk around saying things like "Hola pendejo" or "What's up pendejo?" or "Como estas pendejo?". Heck, I'm from the southwest and even I started wondering if I was wrong about what it meant after a while.

USP .45: OK, and the twitter page uses English and Spanish, yet you were outraged...sorry that's my lack of integrity talking...you were "amused" enough to post a non-story with a dumbass tag. So clearly you're "amused" with the lack of pure Spanish despite the bilingual nature of the audience, or something similarly petty. But hey it's your submission....SUBBY!

The Why Not Guy: USP .45: Really the most important thing is that I'm wrong about who subby is. It must be certain.

No, it's not the most important thing at all. Heck, it's not even close. But your response to your claim being proven incorrect speaks a great deal about your integrity, and I'm glad to help expose that to as many people as possible.


The pomposity of calling it a "claim" that is proven wrong is straight out of Fark.com from 2005. I said "hi there subby" with a condescending Wonka face. The effort that goes into proving someone using a fake name "wrong" is just hilarious douchery to me, and now you say it's for some crusade to keep integrity levels high. Your name is the "The Why Not Guy," why not use your real name sir? We must have integrity! LOL jesus farking chist this is old school Fark patronizing bullshiat.  No wait, it'll be really old school if I get banned for everyone else threadjacking a 3 word phrase I made. I'm out, down with Prop 8, and have a nice day.

USP .45: subby must be saying people that speak Spanish in the United States don't know English, which is why he/she finds it outrageous any tweets on the channel would be in English.


It would be like if you called your bank and the voice said "press 1 for English" and when you did, the rest of the call was in Japanese.  And nobody here is outraged. We're amused.

BMulligan: cameroncrazy1984: You have to laugh at the GOP's notion that they can get blacks and latinos to vote for their anti-minority policies if only they say some magic words.

I can see why they thought it would work. They've had great success over the years persuading poor white Americans to vote GOP, against their own interests.


The poor and ignorant white voter base is a jealous God, however.  They won't allow the GOP to successfully court the Hispanic and/or Black voting blocks.  They'll rebel and abandon the GOP if they sincerely try, and the GOP will never be able to court enough blacks and Hispanics to make up for that lost white base.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't.  Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people.

In and of it self, it doesn't. However, it does make for a good bumper sticker or tweet.

You know... it's really not surprising that the GOP has embraced twitter so veraciously. For a party that communicates through soundbites instead of nuanced policy positions, it seems a natural fit.
