(Politico)   Senator: I apologize for calling Biden OMB nominee Neera Tanden "a neo-socialist, left-of-Lenin whack job", I was "searching for another word". A) That's an entire phrase and B) wasn't the knock on Tanden that she said mean things about Republicans?   (politico.com) divider line

Sorry for calling you a coont, Senator Kennedy.

What's that? I never called you a coont before?

coont.

Old news.  The new bombshell:  Tanden actually *did* call Bernie an ignorant slut.

I wouldn't worry about it Senator. As soon as most of us start to give a shiat about what Republican senators think, we'll let you know.

"I apologize. I was searching for a word for extremist, which I think is more neutral," Kennedy said. "And I should have said extremist. I never should have said whack job."

Yeah, I'm sure that's the part that makes you sound like a dumb asshole.

But you see, he is male. And white. So it's not his fault that he said that. It's antifa and it's not his fault that these colored women are all crazy as shiat. Maybe they should smile more and let slightly less offensive shiat flop out of their blowholes. They might seem more attractive then. Sheesh. Women, am I right?

Silly subby. Don't you realize that right wingers are allowed to spend 50 years dehumanizing the left, but Democrats must always be perfectly respectful and civil.

It's just another part of what makes right wingers unfit to share our country.

I'm not sure Democrat Senators were particular civil to the likes of Betsy DeVos when she was up for confirmation. Being nasty towards the incoming cabinet is an American tradition since 1994.

I've met Deb Haaland. I don't think this guy would say that to her face, but I'd like to be a fly on the wall observing that if he ever did.

Subby trolling or what?

We've gone over this - Haaland is not Indian, Tanden is. This isn't complicated.

And I mean yeah Haaland is a left wing nutjob that's why we want her in. Humanity's only habitat is farked without someone like her.

I'm sorry senator.  When I called you a benighted, morally bankrupt, misogynist, defender of white nationalist terrorists, lacking any intellectual curiosity whatsoever, I should have simply called you a racist sociopathic idiot, which would have ticked all the same boxes without forcing you Google benighted and misogynist.

Uhh considering the article and the quote are NOT about Tanden, NOT about the OMB, and all you have to do is click the link and glance at the headline to discover this, it's pretty farking underhanded what Fark is doing.

She'll be very surprised by this since it's on her congressional biography that, I assume, she had to approve for publishing.

TBF TFA uses a picture of Tanden and includes an editor's note that it has been changed to clarify that Kennedy was talking about Haaland, so I'm guessing subby was dunking on Politico.

The media is playing defense and ramping up the usual cries of racism, but she's bad enough that even the Democratic senators won't be able to hold their noses and vote for her.

Honestly, she's not even the worst of Biden's nominees.  Terrible person, sure, but there are some real nutballs on the slate.

No.

Right wing trash are playing like mean tweets about them matter. When they're the shiat of humanity that deserve to be mocked and shiat on.

And anyway, right wing filth does it all farking day for the last 50 years, so get farkered.

How many "We're pissed we can't have our terrible lobbyist of color" articles are we going to have?

Neera Tanden is uniquely awful and she's really the only one who isn't getting through. Here are some reasons she's uniquely unqualified:

- Her inability to maintain confidentiality as demonstrated by her revealing the identity of a sexual harassment victim to the entire staff at a meeting.
- Her inability to effectively manage at CAP.
- Her criticism of and muzzling of thinkprogress writers at the behest of AIPAC.
- Union busting by closing down thinkprogress shortly after unionization under CAP.
- Her defense of the Iraq War votes.


If she gets bumped because of mean tweets, it will be the right action for the wrong reasons. Stop using race and gender politics to defend your shiatty farking corporate lobbyists.

And don't give her a position anywhere near the White House for the above reasons.

You see, back in 1492, Columbus thought he was going to India, and instead he hit what's now Haiti/the DR. And he said, whoa, hey, Indians! But it turns out they were Americans. And White people just kept on calling them Indians until the name stuck, and have had a ridiculous inertia about it despite 500 years to change.

Turns out there's an actual country called India, Columbus wasn't in it, and the people from there are actually Indian. Now some of those people live here in America!
