Idiot Republican cracker apologizes for calling Obama “that boy”

Some Republicans just can’t stand prosperity. Their side of the presidential nomination race is settled and has been for some time. Grandpa Walnuts, their nominee, is getting a free ride from the nonexistent liberal media. The two remaining Democratic candidates are verbally stomping the shit out of one another, and the press hangs on every word. All in all, not a bad situation for the Republicans.

That brings us to Rep. Geoff Davis (I kid you not), a Republican who represents Kentucky’s Fourth District in the U.S. Congress. Davis spoke Saturday night at an annual event called the Fourth District Lincoln/Reagan Day Dinner in Boone County, Kentucky. Commenting on Barack Obama’s alleged incompetence to handle a national defense emergency, Davis floated this barbarism:

“I’m going to tell you something: That boy’s finger does not need to be on the button[.]”

Jesus Christ. Why not just call Obama a “porch monkey” and be done with it?

Davis sent a written apology to Obama yesterday:

Yesterday, Davis wrote a letter to Obama, apologizing for his “poor choice of words” that he said were “in no way meant to impugn you or your integrity.”

“I offer my sincere apology to you and ask for your forgiveness,” Davis wrote. “My comment has detracted from the dialogue we should all be having on legitimate policy differences and in no way reflects the personal and professional respect I have for you.”

He didn’t mean to impugn Obama or his character, you see; he simply meant to impugn Obama’s skin color, which, although it makes Obama inherently inferior to Davis, in no way detracts from Davis’ “personal and professional respect.” Good God.

When, oh when, will we stop shopping for legislators at Dumb Fuck Racist Hillbilly Crackers ‘R’ Us? This fool should be cleaning deep fryers at Kentucky Fried Chicken for a living, commiserating with his troglodyte buddies about how the coloreds are getting all these “special rahts.” Instead he’s in Congress voting on legislation that affects every man, woman and child in the country.

    As a transplant from the West to the South, one of the things I have been gobsmacked by is the casualness of the racism. I don’t even know that it’s conscious on their part, but is so startling and jarring for me. That these people are elected by other people to whom calling a black man “boy” is done as unthinkingly as wishing a neighbor “Good Mornin'” isn’t surprising.
