Charles tweeted this out about the Virginia election win for Terry McAuliffe.

I am shocked Charles did not take credit for Terry McAuliffe’s win!

    Sodomy wins? Really? Wonderful political platform you got there, liberals. I guess it beats the shit out of “free abortions, all the time”. But since I have a soul, I’m unqualified to address liberal motives.

    Can’t be arsed.

    Far more shocking to me than a semi-black guy getting elected president of the country, is this “old white man” getting elected mayor of Detroit. I never thought I’d see the day. Just today, a black colleague of mine said Duggan “might be leading in the polls, but when they count the votes, the brother is going to be mayor.” The brother was former police chief Benny Napoleon, seen by many as a link to the disgraced hip-hop mayor, Kilpatrick.

    It’s going to be an interesting few years in Detroit. The city is still going through bankruptcy, there’s a manager in place with the power to overrule the mayor and city council on budgetary matters, and the problems of a shrinking tax-base and massive unemployment will not be going away anytime soon. Dare I say it, though…this is a real stab at hope and change, with the business-like Duggan on the job.

    I’ve been listening to a bunch of Tull recently, a favorite of mine back in high school, but not so much afterwards. They were doing amazing things musically, fusing rock with old English folk tunes, classical overtones, the crazy flute solos, etc. I came across this mini-controversy on Youtube, really more of a nontroversy, but it’s kind of intriguing: did the Eagles lift the chord-progressions of their biggest hit, “Hotel California,” from this minor (in popularity) Tull song? I don’t hear an exact match, but there’s a definite strong similarity, even in the Martin Barre guitar solo.

    Way to hit back, Chunky! Teach those media-hogs what it feels like to be unpopular, ignored…invisible…

    Here’s a couple more nutters, didn’t get the memo about “No Warming In 17 Years.” Fatass’s favorite non-scientist science expert, Peter Sinclair, captioned this clip with the deathless, “Governing as if science was real. What a concept.” 😆

  7. Pakimon says:

    You’d think Chunky would settle for any kind of “cooch” nowadays. 😆

      Pakimog say, he always on the lookout for “caveman Cooch”!

    • trebob says:

      Stay classy Charles.

    • Arachne says:

      Oh really, Fatass? I would think a worthless piece of shit like McAuliffe is your kinda guy. Oh, I did notice that he won a PLURALITY, not a majority. Funny, but its a big Obama bundler from Texas that funded the 3rd party Libertarian candidate, that even libertarian stallwart Ron Paul told them not to vote for. Not to mention that McAuliffe lied and smeared his opponent.

      If Virginia allows recall elections I predict Terry doesn’t finish out his term.

      I used to think you were smart, Virginia, oh, and welcome to California.

      • Because 1-800-MILYO says:

        The purpleization of Virginia just proves that the left is wrong when they declare suburbinization over. The only reason why the state votes purple now is all the white government workers from DC moving out of the city to get away from the “diversity”.

  8. Pakimon says:

    The unthinkable has happened!

    The Choomster Messiah’s approval numbers dip below Dubya’s!

    Instead of gloating, I’ll just regale you with song! 😆

      “A year ago this week, more than 125,000 people signed a secession petition asking the Obama administration to “Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and…”

      And … More than 125,000 people got tax audits performed by IRS proctologists skilled in the Stasi arts of anal torment…

      Because the IRS has it’s own Donkey Show force, complete with assault dildos.

        Sodomy won. An assclown stalker said so.

        And I’m pretty sure assclowns know their sodomy.

      • Arachne says:

        I don’t know why Wonderwall of Blubber is so excited that sodomy is okay in Virginia. He hasn’t got the money to travel there and even if he showed up – I doubt he’d have any better luck finding a willing partner to take on that mass of cellulite.

        Is “teh buttseks” something like this?

    If we lose California, Steely Dan will go back to Annandale.

    I have no opinion on this, but it’s worth noting. As far as I know, they have kept every promise ever made in their lyrics. 😉

    California tumbles into the sea

      My husband says that when the Employer Mandate kicks in, I’ll likely lose the family insurance coverage through the company I work for.

      • rightymouse says:

        He says that Obama delayed it figuring that it would have been too difficult a problem to spin with so many people losing their insurance coverage.

      • Abu sans Milyo says:

        I’ve been told the same thing about my company from a woman who works for one of our oldest clients. She has no reason to lie or make it up so it might be true.

      • Because 1-800-MILYO says:

        At this point, it’s starting to look like the net effect of “affordable care” is going to be fewer insured overall than before.

        But maybe that was the plan all along.

  15. JimboXL says:

    I know that universally the average Dim voter is very dim indeed, but to actually vote for McAwful, that puts you in the bottom 1% of the Dim voter IQ range. Going into the vote with only enough brain cells realize that you might need to eat food or drink water, you would still know that McAwful isn’t a typical Dim who will only to a mildly terrible job of managing, rather that he wouldn’t manage at all and would actually financially bust out the state and bankrupt it as he gives kickbacks to his cronies. Virginia is eff’d.

    Well, at least now we know why they haven’t beckoned Fatass with the Moonbat Signal, to come and rewrite millions of lines of code at Obamacare.fku so they can start bleeding the middle class even faster. Everyone was wondering.

    Keep thinking the GOP is screwed in 2014, Chunky. 😆

  20. Octopus says:

    They call her “The Madonna Of The Middle East.” Not sure if that’s a compliment, or a curse. 😉

  21. Octopus says:

    There’s a video here with a very disturbing close-up of Fatass McDumbth spieling about his exploits, including a lengthy discussion of the Rathergate Memo. I believe he is lying about his originality in exposing the memo as a modern Word doc — didn’t he steal it from someone named Buckethead, who used to play guitar with a KFC bucket on his head, and a plastic mask covering his face? This getup would have helped Chunky look better in this video, but it wouldn’t have helped his jazzy guitar noodling, or rheumy eyes.

    One of the very few conservative editorialists in Detroit discusses the astounding win for Mike Duggan. There are some interesting comparisons to be made, with the national mood that led to the election of Unicorn Messiah, and this non-fashionable, unpretty manager. I’m too tired to make them now, but you’ll see what I mean.


    Detroit voters stepped out of comfort zone in picking Duggan

    Eighteen months ago, as Mike Duggan was weighing his mayoral ambitions, I wrote a column asking, “Will Detroit elect a white mayor?”

    Tuesday, Detroiters answered the question, making the rumpled, Dockers-wearing, former suburban soccer coach the city’s first white mayor in 40 years. The election was astounding not just because of Duggan’s race, but because race had such little influence on the outcome.

    The first person I asked about Duggan’s chances when I was writing that piece in the spring of 2012 was Sheila Cockrel. She was the city’s lone white elected official when she retired from the City Council four years ago. Her answer: “Detroiters will vote for the right white mayor.”

    So what made Duggan the right choice for a city that has gone from 50 percent African-American to 83 percent — the highest in America — in the four decades since Coleman A. Young became the first black mayor?

    Sheila Cockrel again: “He presented himself as a turnaround guy to a city desperate for a turnaround.”

    Credentials, not charisma, carried Duggan to victory. Frustrated Detroit voters chose substance over style, stepping well outside their comfort zone in the same way fed-up Americans did in 2008 to make Barack Obama their first black president.

    “An 80 percent African-American city saw Mike Duggan as the candidate of change,” said attorney Reggie Turner. “They don’t care about the color of his skin; they want results.”

    Bob Berg, who was Young’s press secretary and who has done work for subsequent mayors, said Duggan brought voters exactly the right message.

    “After what’s happened to this city over the past 10 years, people were just looking for someone who could get the job done,” Berg said. “Mike very effectively sold himself as the one who fixed the Detroit Medical Center, and that resonated.”

    Cockrel agreed that stressing his success at DMC struck the right chord. “So many Detroit voters work there, or have family who work there, or use the hospitals. That gave Duggan the connection to Detroiters he needed.”

    Working the grassroots

    Saunteel Jenkins, the City Council president who cruised to victory herself Tuesday, credited Duggan for going deep into the neighborhoods, holding 250 house meetings, sometimes with groups as small as five or six.

    “He was very aggressive in grassroots campaigning,” Jenkins said. “He understood that because he wasn’t from here, he had to do a lot more work at the street level.”

    And at a time when Detroiters wanted something different, Duggan is as different as it gets.

    Compared to the city’s most recent mayors, Duggan lacks their cadence, celebrity, street smarts and wardrobe — one of Kwame Kilpatrick’s ties cost more than Duggan’s best suit. He’s a fleece vest in a leather jacket city. Though Duggan tried to stress his Detroit bona fides — he was born in the city and commuted to work there for nearly 30 years — there was no hiding that he made his life in Livonia, not long ago America’s whitest city, and moved to Detroit solely to run for mayor.

    Instead of being a curse, Duggan’s departure from the political norms distinguished him from the status quo.

    “Whether true or not, people saw Benny as part of the old-school politics that hasn’t worked so well for us,” Jenkins said.

    Detroiters who were once proud of their hip-hop mayor are happy now to settle for a square mayor with the skills to manage the city back to stability.

    A stunned opponent

    Duggan also benefited from Napoleon’s passive campaign. I spoke with Napoleon a few days before the primary, and he was certain Duggan’s write-in bid would fail and that he’d be facing a much weaker candidate in the general election.

    He was stunned by the thumping Duggan gave him in August and never recovered.

    One of Napoleon’s top campaign staffers told me Tuesday that instead of starting over after the primary with a new team, new message and new energy, the sheriff simply shuffled around the players and stuck with the strategy of stressing his lifelong commitment to Detroit.

    There was a time, Berg said, when that would have been all that mattered in a Detroit election.

    “When Coleman Young was elected, 50 percent of the population felt disenfranchised,” he said. “He opened up doors to opportunity that had been historically closed to them. But things change with time, and that battle has been won.”

    Black Detroiters, Berg said, are confident enough today to downgrade race when assessing a candidate.

    And as they proved Tuesday, they’re perfectly willing to elect a white mayor who brings the right message at the right time.
