Yeah Ann, you just sit there and tell Whoopi what black people think. Sheesh, you’d think even she wasn’t that stupid. Via Mediaite.

This one should go viral, it’s knee-slappin’ hi-larious! The stupid, it burns… literally.

I have nothing to add to that. He nailed it.
I got an email from Sean Harris just now… at least I think it’s from him. I have no idea why, since I didn’t write a post about him (I didn’t want to expose our readers to his vile screed), nor did I tweet about the utterly disgusting, despicable things he said. Instead, I chose to shun the poor excuse for a human being.
He likely blast-emailed every political site in the entire blogosphere.
Here’s a screen grab of the email, which I assume is authentic based on the return address (which I blacked out). If not, one of his supporters is desperate to rebuild what’s left of his wretched image:
In the letter that the link takes you to, he says he “misspoke.” No, Pastor Sean, using the term “misspoke” to cover your ass just doesn’t cut it when you devote an entire sermon to encourage violence, sick hatred, verbal abuse, and bigotry.
Here’s Lawrence O’Donnell’s take since I don’t have the stomach to go further. The video includes everything I’ve avoided writing about, in case you missed it:
“No, sweetheart,” you get no second chances. You were clear enough the first time.
The other day, Paddy wrote:
I received in my mail yesterday, written by Mr David Brock and a MM colleague, the preview copy of “The Fox Effect: How Roger Ailes Turned a Network into a Propaganda Machine” It’s released on Tuesday.
Think Progress has a copy too. Here’s one little excerpt:
Ailes used homophobic slurs to describe George H.W. Bush’s clothing: “‘You can’t wear a short-sleeve shirt—you’ll look like a fucking faggot.” [The Fox Effect, p. 32]
Just as ClusterFoxian as we expected, isn’t it? What a peach of a guy.
Please go read the rest of the “Top Five Roger Ailes Quotes From The Fox Effect.” And once Paddy finishes the book, you’ll get her take, too. I personally cannot wait for Paddy’s impressions. That should be more than a little entertaining.
Pat Buchanan has left the MSNBC building. All together now: Awww.
And as the door hopefully hits him on the way out, he’s throwing a Poor Little Me/Blame Those Icky Libruls tantrum:
After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.
The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?? A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it “exists to strengthen Black America’s political voice,” claimed that my book espouses a “white supremacist ideology.” Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, “The End of White America.” [...]
If my book is racist and anti-Semitic, how did Sean Hannity, Erin Burnett, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Lou Dobbs, and Ralph Nader miss that? [...]
[M]y four-months’ absence from MSNBC and now my departure represent an undeniable victory for the blacklisters… I know these blacklisters. They operate behind closed doors, with phone calls, mailed threats, and off-the-record meetings. They work in the dark because, as Al Smith said, nothing un-American can live in the sunlight.
Oh geez, no wonder I’ve had trouble typing this post! I nearly forgot to turn on the light in my dark evil dungeon of an office after I mailed a threat, made some clandestine phone calls, and held off-the-record meetings with my fellow blacklisters.
Uncle Pat found me out!
Now why would we un-American types want to get Buchanan off the airwaves? Oh that’s right (scroll).
