BERNIE MAC, BARACK OBAMA, & DON IMUS

Here we go again.

Barack gives us another demonstration of his “situational ethics.” Roughly translated, situational ethics, as practiced by Barack, mean change whatever way the wind blows. Maybe we should call Barack “weather vane” Obama.

Last April Don Imus made a dumb 20 second comment, “nappy headed hos” and Barack declared, “off with his head!” Bernie Mac gives an entire comic routine that diminishes women and intentionally refers to them as hos.And what is Weather Vane’s response?

Surprise, surprise, not a damn thing of import! You were expecting more? Not me, the real surprise would have been Obama had treated Mac the same way he treated Imus. At least Obama could have pretended to mount the same level of synthetic outrage against Mac as Imus.

But no; Mac does an entire routine in front of an audience, and ole Weather Vane doesn’t have the cajones to put a stop to it.

UPDATE: As Memeorandum.com makes clear, Daily Kos and other “progressive” blogs are ignoring this story. And, although Obama wanted Don Imus fired for referring to a woman as a “ho,” Obama’s prescription for Mac was, “I’m just kidding with you, man.” Obama told the crowd last night:

“… Bernie you got to clean up your act. This is a family affair… I’m just messing with you,” he said.

obama-mac.jpgOriginal: What is astonishing about this report from Obama’s $2,300-per-person fundraiser in Chicago last night — we know he’s desperate for donations — is not just the crude “ho” joke that comedian Bernie Mac told (described below). It’s not just that, when he took the stage, Obama thanked “my great friend, one of the kings of comedy, Bernie Mac,” later offering only the most tepid, perfunctory criticism. One of the shockers is that the media reported, but failed to point out, the outright sexism in these comments from Mac’s routine:

“Having a black first lady is different: You’re still going have to do the dishes and the laundry and all that . . . you got to pick up the kids,” Mac said. “‘You didn’t pick up the kids?’ ‘I just came from Korea, talking about nuclear weapons.’ ‘You were on Air Force One and you couldn’t stop to pick up the kids?’” The balance of this cam be read at NO QUARTER

I don’t about anyone else, but I’m tiring of hearing what a terrific politician Obama is; he’s not!

A savvy politician would have understood Mac was out of line. A savvy politician would have attempted to repair the damage immediately. A savvy politician would have understood you don’t charge people $2,300.00 a plate to sit and be insulted and then expect their loyalty and their votes.

Geezse, gimme a break, will ya! And while we’re at it, how long before this clown is off the world stage? Obama, not Mac, that is.

    The major news media write these days again and again that Barack Hussein should win over female vote of Hillary’s supporters, see ABC for example. Hmm, I am not a female (sure!) wont vote for Obama-baby or McCain (again sure!) so ABC and the likes have counted me out. BUT NEVER COUNT OUT A CLINTON! You will see she will become a President next January. That’s the point. In the meantime Barack can continue to inhale until the year 2016 and John to distance himself away from Bush until he founds himself in his Arizonian house.

    Yes, I will write-in Hillary no matter what the ballot will look like on the Election day. Go on, Hillary!

    Of the three candidates, I still prefer Hillary. There is no doubt in my mind that she would make a very fine president and that her kind of politics is what this country needs.

    Since the DNC is determined to loose this race in November, my vote has to go to McCain. I’ll take a man that would rather loose an election than loose a war any day.

    Honor and personal integrity count with me!
