Put THAT in Your Etouffee!


Excuse me folks while I indulge in a bit of gloating. It is quite obvious that Obama does in fact read my blog. Guess what has been reported in the latest news cycle? Obama is now working to pay off Hillary's debts. Who suggested he do that to began the healing process? I did. Who urged him to do some ass kissing to Hillary Clinton's supporters? I did.

There ARE perks to actually having an opinion. Some of you maintain the most cobwebby space in the blogworld. YOU should pay careful attention to me. If you don't have an opinion, then you are nothing more than a waste of space. You are just clogging up the blogosphere with BLAH BLAH nothingness.

Sure, I take heat for my opinions. It ticks me off when I get comments from other Cajuns that say they are embarrassed by me. While you feel embarrassment, I feel pangs of sorrow for you.

Excuse me for not being a corporate drone whose guts have been ripped out and replaced with political correctness. I am human. I have feelings and opinions. I am neither a drone nor a sheep.

As Julia Sugarbaker once said in "Blame it On New Orleans", Put THAT in your Etouffee and chomp on it!
Editor's Note: Every Southern gay man's required viewing is Designing Women. In fact, some of you who have left God's country (the South) and turned into West Coast Yahoos should brush up on your Julia and Suzanne Sugarbaker. When I sniff your ass, it reeks of corporate droneness and gnarly sheep shit.

Don't forget about that OTHER absolutely painful, unfunny, Southern must-see... "Sordid Lives".

Watching southerners laugh at this film is very educational.

I have been anticipating this post. I immediately thought of you when I heard what Obama was doing.

Yes, I am now bending over right now expecting some making up via ass kissing to take place since I was "RIGHT" as opposed to "CRAZY".

If Obama was really reading your blog, don't you think he would ask his supporters to send money directly to you?

perhaps I misunderstood, but Obama didn't want his supports to help pay off Hillary's debt, he wanted companys that she was in debt to, to simply forgive the debt. Still leaving Hillary $11M in the hole personally.

maybe I'm confused? But will someone forgive my debt incurred by doing what I wanted all along?

Either way, I love Hillary and wish she was the candidate. But I'm not sure forgiving her debt is the answer to anything. Especially when we've reached the 1 Millionth home that has been forclosed on this week.

Well, Hillary had to run up that debt to compete with Obama. Otherwise, it would have been no real race (much like the Republicans). She made the nomination exciting because it was so competitive. That helped the Democratic Party stay in the news way longer than the Republican primary laughfest. I think she deserves her debt to be forgiven.

It's not as uncommon as you might think:

Former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack gave Sen. Hillary Clinton his endorsement for her presidential campaign.

The Clinton campaign has promised Vilsack to help pay off a $400,000 campaign debt he built up during his run for the White House.

A representative for Clinton's campaign said they are not sure how their campaign will do that. They concede that at some point, Clinton will have to contact her supporters.

Actually Brett, it's customary for the presumptive nominee to help payoff their opponents debt. It's nothing new really.

The comments this time are a lot different than from your first post about paying off the debt (I kinda expected at least one commenter to apologize).

The responses to your earlier post reminded of a group that used to hang out in airports many years ago. They presented themselves as peace loving and even sold flowers. But God help you if you ever said anything negative about their leader.

Thanks everyone for letting the record state that I was not crazy when I suggested Obama pay off Hillary's debts. I got lampooned as crazy when I first urged him to do so. It's nice to see so many come here and validate how NORMAL it is.

It wasn't that anyone thought you were crazy for suggesting Obama help pay off Clinton's debt (at least, not anyone who knows anything about the political machines).

Rather, it was the unmitigated gall you showed by *demanding* that Obama "must first offer the position of Vice Presidency to Hillary Clinton AND pay off all of her campaign debts" as the price for your support.

Like Obama (a) really cares what one queer Democrat in a solidly red state thinks, and (b) really is going to pay off ALL of Clinton's debt, when she could have saved herself a ton of money by dropping out when it became obvious, weeks before she finally quit, that it was virtually impossible for her to win the nomination.

Yes, it's traditional for nominees to "help" losers pay off their campaign debts, "help" being the operative word. Because of the low amounts that people can contribute to a campaign, winners often ask their richest supporters, those who could afford to give several times the limit, to use some of that money to retire loser debt.

Another key word is "traditional". It's also traditional that losers endorse winning nominees, WITHOUT being so crass and tacky as to make demands as to the cost of that support. For someone who prides himself on being Southern, you sure seem to miss a lot of the basics.

And the saddest part, I suppose, as your delusion that "time ran out" on Clinton. No, what actually ran out was the supply of uncommitted delegates.

You love football; if Team A maintains a 40 point lead from the start of the game to the start of the fourth quarter, and Team B manages to narrow that gap to 25 points by the end of the game, you don't point to "momentum" and say that Team B deserved to win. You point out that Team B fucked up from the beginning to allow Team A to get 40 points ahead.

I'm not really sure what that means, but I'm sure it's a put down of some sort. So again...it's not WHAT you say it's HOW you say it.
