Is Barracuda Kosher?

Two "tribe" friends of mine battle over Sarah Palin.

Schlub To Stud author Max Gross calls the VP candidate a schlemile.

Alarming News "Queen Bee" Karol Sheinin calls Palin her homegirl.

Um, jewcy indeed!!

UPDATE: A non-conservative journalist takes a rather admiring take on latter-day Sarah Palin.

Polling The Really Racist Vote

Esquire polls leaders of various racist organizations to figure out who they're for.  Not exactly how one might imagine.  

Rocky Suhayda of the American Nazi Party may be my new favorite extremist: 

Who: Chairman, American Nazi Party

Likes: Hitler, white people

Dislikes: Jews, immigrants, multinational corporations

Career highlights: Being widely quoted bemoaning in the fact that so few Aryan-Americans had the cojones of the 9/11 hijackers: "If we were one-tenth as serious, we might start getting somewhere."

"White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally I’d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation, who supports the invasion of America by illegals--basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women--when usually negroes who have 'made it' immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize--that’s the kind of negro that I can respect. Any time that a prominent person embraces their racial heritage in a positive manner, it’s good for all racially minded folks. Besides, America cares nothing for the interests of the white American worker, while having a love affair with just about every non-white on planet Earth. It’d be poetic justice to have a non-white as titular chief over this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah."

And, yes, a "black supremacist" expresses his rather unique perspective too. Not the Obama fan you might think.

Meanwhile, an exercised anti-Obama blogger -- after pursuing the "mystery" of Obama's supposedly missing birth certificate -- reveals the biggest media cover-up of the campaign so far:  Obama is actually the son of Malcolm X!! (Hat tip to Ezra Klein, who also includes some great computerized artwork of Obama as a member of the X-Men).  Of course, the downside of this is that it means Obama really was born in the United States.  really sucks when one conspiracy theory screws up the foundation of the conspiracy theory which launched the search in the first place.  Oh well.

The Politics of Sports...

Long-time reader ERA writes: "The Philadelphia Philles winning the World Series preceded the beginning of the Reagan Era in 1980. Does the Phillies not winning the WS again until 2008 provide a bookend to part of history or portend the beginning of a new Era? Both?"

Thoughts to ponder.

Here's another: The corollary to this is that -- as I believe I mentioned once before, after discovering a few years ago -- the New York Yankees, in the George Steinbrenner era, have never won the World Series with a Republican in the White House. In the Bush era, they made it twice, but lost both times.

So, though it's hardly a surprise that New York will vote for Barack Obama this year, Yankee fans have even a stronger reason to see him win. In fairness though, having a Democrat in the White House doesn't mean that Yankee problems will be fixed overnight: Bill Clinton took office in January of 1993 -- and the Yankees didn't win the World Series until October, '96.

Why It's Not Quite Over

In a case of politics making strange bedfellows, Republican consultant Bill Greener writes in Salon on what could be called The "Bradley Effect-As-Amended" -- the WYSIWYG phenomenon of "undecided" voters going enmasse for a white candidate over a black one.
