This is the Republican base
The Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery, in keeping with the spirit of political truth-telling set by Dr. Martin Luther King and Mrs. King, said this at Coretta’s funeral today (Think Progress):
We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. [Standing Ovation] But Coretta knew and we know that there are weapons of misdirection right down here. Millions without health insurance. Poverty abounds. For war billions more but no more for the poor.
The moment those words left Lowery’s lips, you knew it was only a matter of time before the Swift Boating would begin. Apparently it didn’t take long at all.
Lest we forget the class of the people we’re dealing with, the cretins who stand behind the criminal Bush administration no matter what, we only need to turn to the desperate, filthy underbelly of The Republican Base. Read my friends, this statement by the founder of the Free Republic, Jim Robinson.
We oppose all forms of liberalism, socialism, fascism, pacifism, totalitarianism, anarchism, government enforced atheism, abortionism, feminism, homosexualism, racism, wacko environmentalism, judicial activism, etc.
With that laughably and quickly dispatched, letâ€™s take a look at the Republican base. Letâ€™s also look at the black Republicans, because Coretta and Dr. King fought for their right to lie down with the flea-ridden dogs of The Base…
Lowery : Blah Blah blah bash bash bash bull bull bull Dubya : What a maroon. Laura : Please let me kick his ass. Please OK – give it your best
“I would like another roll with dinner please.”
“Two classy people sitting behind a pile of trash.”
Colonel Sanders has been palling around with George Hamilton.
Lowery: And yesim, we’s be black and we’s be proud. We’s for the gubmit but not Bush’s gubmit. Bush’s gubmit is against us black peoples…
Bush thinking: They just can’t leave politics out of it, can they? How low CAN they sink?
Laura thinking: Say it…say one more word about my husband….come on…
Laura looks determined and dignified. And is striking!
Dubya: “Hey Laura, listen closely here, I had Rove slip some political stuff into his speech so that the Dims end up “Wellstoning” themselves again…”
“psssst, look Laura, his trousers move when he’s talking out his arse.”
“They’re running this funeral like a PLANTATION!!! And you KNOW what I’m talkin’ about!!!”
Bush is going to get the last laugh, as usual. Watch his approval rating skyrocket after this shameful display.
W: “What’s that old saying, ‘Better to be thought a complete race baiting moron than open your mouth and remove all doubt.'”
It is so nice to have a first couple with class in the White House.
You got that right. I caught part of the service. What a disgrace. I wish Pres. Bush and First Lady Laura did not have to sit through that. They are better people than I.
“Psst…Laura, you sure that ain’t Looter Guy?”
Un-by-God-believable! These people have no shame at all! To take a funeral that was supposed to celebrate a life and turn it into a political hack job has got to the lowest act possible. I hope that black america sees this and knows just how disgusting their leaders are.

Yes, this is the base — the alleged new friends of Bush’s back-slapping Self-Loathing NegroesTM, the ones who don’t mind waiting for some to-go leftovers from The Man, some faith-based cash, and a few photo ops to make them feel like power brokers in The Big House.
Dr. King and Coretta Scott King spent their lives courageously fighting for equality and social justice. Their work enabled people like these losers below to bed down with the Right. Even after the naked exposure of The Base after Katrina, you will find these fellows standing behind their Man.
Armstrong Williams, well-paid, ho-beast shill for the Administration
Keith Butler, homo-bigot running for the Senate in Michigan.
Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, running for governor
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, head of winger org Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny, famously saying after Katrina: “If black folks want to blame someone for this tragedy they only need to look in the mirror.”
Alan Keyes, member of good standing in the AmTaliban, who kicked his “selfish hedonist” lesbian daughter out of the house
Our faux token on the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas.
I’m sure the Republican base would agree with Massie.
