Angie, you’re beautiful, but ain’t it time we said goodbye?

Yesterday, TS directed us to Hollywood has-been Angie Harmon letting everyone know that she’s not a racist because she doesn’t care for Obama. Today we found out that she didn’t have to good sense to just stop there:

“It’s not like anyone has come up to my face and been like ‘I’m not hiring you because you’re a Republican!’ But the media is so liberal and I get it, but I’m just confused on where we lost the respect for our fellow Americans. Not all of us are supposed to believe the same things and think the same way,” she added. “I think the difference between the parties is, with the Democrats you can sit down with them and have a 15 minute conversation and if you’re not believing everything they say and buying into what they’re selling you, it is like you’re some dumb hick who doesn’t deserve to live here anymore. But with the Republicans, it is like okay I want to know what you know, you want to know what I know, okay great lets go have a beer after work, we’re still friends. I’m just confused as to where we lost that in America because it is everyone’s God-given right to think the way they think and that’s fine. That’s why our ancestors came here to America, to believe what they want, pray how they want and follow a religion with whoever they want.”

And in the Democratic-driven heat of Hollywood, Ms. Harmon has definitely taken a risk in voicing her views.

“Look we haven’t been shot yet! We’re still alive! We’ve said the word “Republican” like four times and we’re still alive! Can you believe it?” Harmon joked.

Because everyone knows it’s us liberals who are always telling celebrities to shut up about politics, waving our guns around, and ordering people we don’t agree with to move out of OUR country…

“Miss Giant Flaming Asshole” if you’re nasty…

It would suck to have a last name like “Giant Flaming Asshole,” wouldn’t it? This poor woman knows the burden of carrying such a moniker: Her cousin is Rush Limbaugh, and they share a last name that he has made synonymous with “bombastic racist douche-nozzle.” That’s gotta hurt.

She says he’s not such a bad guy, though, despite his politics. She gets occasional, all-expenses-paid luxury vacations courtesy of “Cousin Rusty.” She says he’s a fun guy at holiday parties and a patient, considerate relative when it comes to visiting children—even those threatening to destroy expensive furniture.

The people in the Salon comments section are hammering Ms. Limbaugh pretty hard, accusing her of being an apologist for her asshole cousin or seeking to capitalize on his fame.

Meh. I take her at her word that she doesn’t share his views, and I think it’s natural enough to make excuses for jackass family members. Ms. Limbaugh puts it well:

“I’m sure you have a grandpa or uncle out there who complains about the “queers” and the people who speak “Mexican” ruining his neighborhood. I don’t like that, but I bet you’re OK.”

Well, she’s got me there. I have many relatives who express troglodyte views that make Rush Limbaugh sound like Al Franken in comparison. Luckily, they don’t spew their hateful nonsense for millions of listeners or wield enough power to make elected officials in a major political party grovel before them like servile toadies.

The world would be a scarier place if they did. And millions might come to curse the name of Cracker. Oh wait…

Eat Your Hearts out PUMAs!

Michelle Obama’s approval ratings soar.

image

(M)ost of the country likes what they see from the First Lady, and she’s getting more popular as time goes on. In June, 48% had a favorable impression of Michelle Obama, while 29% had an unfavorable impression. Now, 76% feel good about the president’s spouse, and only 16% don’t.

It seems efforts to smear Michelle Obama aren’t connecting.

Michelle is an accomplished, intelligent, poised and gracious woman.  She was “grace under fire” during the hectic campaign despite attempts to portray her as a fringe Black Panther at times.  Nice to see her getting some well deserved appreciation!

Oh God Make it STOP!

Hold on to your hats (and your breakfasts):

A source close to former Vice President Cheney has confirmed that Cheney is assembling a team of attorneys to explore the possibility of a 2012 run for the presidency. The source, who asked not to be identified because he was not officially authorized to discuss the matter, stated that initial research revealed no evident Constitutional bar to a vice president who has served two terms later holding the office of president.

“However, Mr. Cheney is aware of the fact that parties could raise legal challenges,” the anonymous source said. “If he should decide to pursue this course, he would prefer to have a clear idea of any potential hurdles and, if possible, have them argued before the Supreme Court well before the next primary season.”

God, I don’t know whether to laugh, cry, or puke.
