Not So Great And Almost Hopeless

We're coming to you from the Self Awareness Department today here in the marbled halls of IM Central. SAD is a division of the Dunning Kruger Company, a wholly owned subsidy of WTF, LLC. But first, this important announcement:

Republicans are so funny when they tell the truth. It just sort of slips out of them like a fart that was intended to be silent but instead births itself with a happy little toot. Then they get all red faced and blame it on the dog.

Take Lynn Jenkins for example. Ms. Jenkins is a Congresswoman from Kansas (Motto: What? We thought it was funny). Recently, at a GOP fundraiser attended by several conscious people, Ms. Jenkins opined that, "the republican pooty is looking for a great white hope to help stop the political agenda of the Democratic party and President Barack Obama."

Now, in Ms. Jenkins' defense we have to say that she is from Kansas, a state that often has to borrow minorities from Illinois for events such as Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year and Rapper night down at the Karaoke Club.

Also to her credit, as soon as people who knew there actually are people in the world who aren't white contacted her, she had her staff blame it on the dog:

A Jenkins spokeswoman told The Topeka Capital-Journal that Jenkins apologized for her word choice and did not intend to offend anyone white. "Representative Jenkins isn't really a boxing fan," the spokeswoman said. "I doubt if she even knew that Johnson fellow was a darky."

Well, glad we cleared that up. Now back to your regularly scheduled barking spider.

Too close to the Great White Hood, for me.
