Not a half-bad question, actually, but since he's a "blah" guy I think we can assume he meant it as a pejorative

Good question. Outside of Northern Virginia, who knows?

Also in the YouTube video, Jackson condemns Democrats for 'equat[ing] homosexuality with being black.'

He says that discrimination against both groups cannot be lumped together under the same civil rights umbrella. 'They can keep their homosexuality private,' he says. 'You and I cannot hide being black.'

Jackson has made a number of anti-gay statements in the past, comparing homosexuals to pedophiles and calling them 'frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally.


So he'll probably win in a landslide then.....at least outside of Northern Virginia.

Walker: Sorry for my state. Most of it is backwards. The only part that isn't backwards isn't moving because it's stuck in traffic.


"Kooky" brought this on himself  though.   He apparently was afraid that he'd be exposed in a primary fight so instead he helped rig it so that this year the nominee woul dbe determined by a party convention.  Which boils down to about 2000 of the ultra-faithful  in the deepest part of the base doing the nominating.  Not only is this going to hurt his chances of pulling a McDonnell and running for the center, but  I think the best he can hope for  this November now is a split-ticket governorship...

From TFA:
"It is time to end the slavish devotion to the Democrat[ic] Party," Jackson, who is African American, said in a 2012 YouTube video. "Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK ever was. And the Democrat[ic]  Party and their black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide."

"The Democrat
[ic] Party has created an unholy alliance between certain, so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions," he added.

I like the way ABC reported this here--as if it were an unintentional error to say "Democrat" instead of "Democratic."  More news organizations need to call out the childish right-wing practice of using the made-up "Democrat Party" name as if it's some sort of grammatical error like this (which, of course, it is--"democrat" is a noun, "democratic" is an adjective).  I'm not a member of the Democratic Party myself, but it still bugs me when members of the Republic Party play this stupid game.

Has anyone ever actually tried to equate "homosexuality" with "havin' the blackness"? You CAN compare the civil rights struggle (to an extent) but to my knowledge nobody has ever tried to say they are the exact same thing.

From what I've read about him, he's the same type of Catholic that Rick Santorum is.

Which is basically acting like a born-again evangelical and ignore the social justice aspect of the Catholic Church.

No, as far as I know, no one has done so. Ironically, we're listening to an African-American claim that homosexuals are separate but equal, and that the same law which protects African-Americans shouldn't be used to protect the LGBT community because the LGBT folks can hide their apparent disease by sitting in the back of the bus.

Jackson has compared Planned Parenthood's support for abortion to genocide, railed against homosexuality, suggested that gay activists harbor an anti-black agenda and said that the Democratic Party is anti-Israel.

Got it. Jackson's a conservative Christian, hitting all the right buzzwords, and attempting to use the race card to push the religion card. It's brilliant, really - if you attempt to refute his crazy religious bullshiat, you're accused of being anti-black. That's the new angle for the GOP's idea of "inclusion", I guess - approach minority religious conservatives and get them to pitch the craziest shiat possible, so that their rich white financial and social conservatives look like moderates. The moderates get the backing, the GOP gets a participation medal for minority inclusion, and their politics don't change one whit.

Because we burn out our stars before they ever truly had a chance to shine, and it's a damn shame. There are so few fresh faced conservatives with pure, unadulterated derp in their veins, and we waste them so cavalierly as losing running mates. Tragic really. They could've been somebodies. They could've been contenders.

It's crazy that he's even up for the job, though not totally surprising. What's worse in that the only person the dems can come up with is McAuliffe, so Cucinelli actually has a legitimate chance. Scary.

On a related note, Obenshain is a good customer of mine and has always been very friendly and easy to deal with. Not an asshole at all. I can't stand his politics, and we had a good laugh over a Sunday Hunting t-shirt I was wearing one day (I'm for it, he's against it), but he's a reasonable individual to conversate and deal with. I won't be voting for him under any circumstances, but if he wins my feelings won't be hurt. Good and reasonable guy with backwards political views is all he is. But Cucinelli is truly evil.

I probably should have fleshed out my one word expression of disbelief a little bit.

This guy gets a lot of National press for an Attorney General at the State level. And it's not for Attorney-Generaling, it's for all his attempts to codify Republican faith as law.

Like all of today's dogmatic Republicans there's no reason to believe he'll do anything for "job growth and pocketbook issues" beyond tax breaks for the kind of people who contribute to Republican campaigns, publicly funding private and parochial schools at the expense of public schools, defunding post-secondary education, legislating morality, and expecting blessings to shower down from somewhere because he's thinking all the right thoughts.

No it's Frank Luntz, the GOP's main word-twister (the one who figured out that they should call the Estate Tax, the "Death Tax"  and Rich people "Job Creators", etc)  He found that people react favorably to the word "democratic"   but negatively to "Democrat" partially because of the harsh final syllable and abrupt ending.   and Yes the GOP really does play stupid word games like this

Y'know, McDonnell has been a fairly decent governor when he has stayed away from the derpier stances of his party. Of course, he just had to jump on the trans-vaginal rape wand train, which was stupid.

However, after the complete and utter failure of Tim Kaine, anyone could have looked like a good governor... even one of McDonnell's rape wands.

Of course, the Republicans seem to be offering MORE DERP this time out, so there really doesn't seem to be any choice other than Christa McAuliffe, or whatever his name is.

Perhaps, but this particular thing has been going on for years in the Republic Party, though it really jumped in popularity in the Bush era, including the fact that Dubya himself generally wouldn't use the phrase "Democratic" when referring to the party or its policies.  I guess the retarded idea is that if they refer to the party or to its policies as "democratic" it might paint them in a good light as supporters of democracy among the feeble-minded listeners (which of course they aren't since we all know that Democrats are commie pinko fascist socialists, right)?

Grammatically, of course, it makes the speaker sound illiterate, since "democrat" is a noun but they always use it to modify other nouns, in place of the adjective "democratic" (e.g., "Democrat budget proposal," "Democrat congressman," "Democrat Party").  For some reason, right-wingers and hicks often use nouns rather than adjectives to describe things attributable to groups they don't like much, and for some reason actually does sound more hostile and/or dismissive (e.g., "woman (n.) lawyer" rather than "female (adj.) lawyer," or "Jew (n.) banker" rather than "Jewish (adj.) banker").  It's the same intentionally-incorrect usage as saying "Democrat (n.) tax plan" rather than "Democratic (adj.) tax plan."  I wonder why this is a thing with them?
