Talk about your cognitive dissonance!

April 3rd, 2008

I voted against sitting Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler (who is black) which means I must be a racist.

But I voted for Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama (who is also black) which means I must not be a racist.

That does not compute!

    Voting for Obama does not mean you are not a racist, it just means you have been brainwashed.

    Obama is only half black, so you are only half racist.

    (I didn’t even know that Butler was black, so I’m just ignorant.)

    The love of my life said the same thing, Steve. She was like, “he’s black?”

    If you didn’t think Butler was black, what did you think he was? No wonder the right calls us elitists. Get you heads out of the echo chamber. There is a whole wide world out here.

    “If you didn’t think Butler was black, what did you think he was”

    A human being? ;)

    Funny Capper and his ilk are crying that the people who never considered race are racists…

    Nice spin Dooley. I haven’t seen anyone’s head spin like that since “The Exorcist” first came out.

    Your attempt at plausible deniability isn’t very plausible. Do you even own a mirror?

    Elliot has the best answer, but the rest is just laughable.

    you define laughable.

    People rejected Butler as he is an activist jurist.

    People like you wish to blame it on something else as you refuse to see the truth.

    You didn’t vote FOR Obama… you voted AGAINST Hillary. So you’re not only racist, but sexist as well.

    I’d also note that if you failed to write in Joe Lieberman for anything, then you’re also an anti-Semite…

    Ah, damn it, someone went back and read my posts. Well, a vote AGAINST Hillary is sort of a vote FOR Obama.
