Bill Clinton Can Kiss My Black Ass

Usually I try to craft these well reasoned posts complete with tons of links and back up data just so I can be assured that my audience is getting a complete picture. Today is not the day for that kind of post because I’m really just too pissed off by politics and politicians for words. See, when a former President that benefited from a good 90% of black voters turning out for him has the nerve to say some jacked up racist shit in South Carolina about his wife’s opponent and then tries to spin that shit into gold in advance of today’s primary? I’m about done with politics and proof, and even attempting to talk about this election cycle without profanity. This idea that Obama is the usurper and somehow it’s wrong for his supporters to recognize racism when it spews out of an elected official’s mouth is wearing me out. So all I really have to say to the Mr. Clinton at this point is a resounding FUCK YOU. For feeding into the same racism you claim to have opposed when it suits you, because you’re thinking it’s worth it if it can advance your cause even a little bit. Fuck you for making me ashamed to have voted for you in the 90’s. Fuck you for jumping all over Jeremiah Wright as though you weren’t the same one that invited him to the White House after the Monica Lewinsky story broke. Fuck you for killing my hopes of an election that would be run with the racism only coming from outside the party. Fuck you for trying to frame things as though black voters owe you a damned thing for doing the job you were elected to do. I’m pissed. I’m tired. And I’m not going to pretend for even a second that this shit is acceptable.

ETA: He doesn’t seem to understand what giving a radio interview actually means in terms of deniability after the fact. Any second now he’s going to claim it wasn’t him that was being interviewed, and I’ll succumb to the urge to just start laughing hysterically about the state of the Democratic Party.

  1. Great post! My sentiments exactly. I can’t wait for those carpetbaggers to be chased out of my Democratic Party. Let her go be John McCain’s biyatch.

  2. Can the church say amen? Indeed it can.

    Everything you just said – this.

  3. Seconding the amen!

    Preach it.

  4. Say it again, sister. You’re singing my song.

  5. This is not the first (nor likely the last) time I’ll wish Hillary had divorced Bill the first time he tried to justify sleeping with some random young woman and run for office on her own merits.

    I really want to be able to vote for a woman for President. I think it would be a fantastic step if the USA could finally join the rest of the Western world and elect a woman to the top job in the country. But not if it means putting Bill Clinton back on stage to stick his foot into our mouths again.

    Thank goodness the Democrats have Obama. I don’t think I’d survive if I had to hold my nose until I could vote against McCain in November.

  6. yeah that pretty much sums it up for me.

  7. *go auntie GO*

  8. Yeah, I used to have some respect for the Clintons, though I’ve never supported Hillary’s candidacy. Such a politcal legacy seems unhealthy to democracy.

    But the way she has run her campaign and attacked Obama, I just… well, you said it. They can take their sense of entitlement and “only we can beat McCain” attitude and shove it up their collective asses.

    Although, given the astonishing incompetence displayed by the Clinton campain, it’s not clear that either one of them could find their ass with both hands in broad daylight.

    If Clinton somehow manages to steal this thing, and make no mistake, STEALING is the word to use, then I just don’t see how I can vote for her. Yeah, intellectually I can entertain arguments that McCain would be worse, but damn, electing Clinton would just send the message that it’s OK to pull this kind of shit.

    I’ve donated to Obama till it hurts, and I’m pretty confident he’ll pull it out. But I can barely stand to watch this slow motion train wreck any longer.

  9. I mean. I’m too through.

  10. Yes. This.

    When I read the latest BS that Bill is spewing, I just threw my hands up. Someone needs to get his ass a chair and a muzzle so he can sit the hell down and shut the hell up.

  11. Finally, political discourse that makes sense to me. Please wake me up when this madness is over (okay, early election day since I will vote). I have never been a Hilary hater but I have come to believe that she is just evil (she would hang off a pole to get the stripper vote).
    Can we just put the presidency on Ebay and raise some money to pay down the national debt.

  12. I believe that it is pretty safe to say that if Obama doesn’t win the democratic nomination, all hell should certainly break loose.

  13. stupid white chick, I just lost half my comment—McCain might grab Rice for VP, Hillary wins nomination, black people are pissed off and BINGO the Republicans have won again. You left out a fuck—FUCK ME. McCain…nail me down. (In case my other comment was taken by CIA—I totally agree, Bill has lost his mind. He deserves what he gets.)

  14. Has his brain disappeared completely? I almost wonder if he’s trying to sabotage his wife’s campaign, with how much he’s been speaking for her lately and fucking up every time. Their negative campaigning is going to make me so disillusioned if she gets this nomination.

  15. Word.

  16. Let’s look at this way, the Clintons are pure political animals (snakes) and they ain’t going down without a fight , the dirtier the better. You see Bill acting up now? You ain’t seen nuttin’ yet. If Hilary takes it to the white house his ass is going to show the fuck out! How much you think his ego can take…the president’s spouse? And as much as I hate to see Barack coming under fire for b.s. I dig he’s handling it with grace and trying to keep the damn thing running respectable and above the slime.

  17. I’ll succumb to the urge to just start laughing hysterically about the state of the Democratic Party.

    You can avoid hysterically laughing at the state of the Democratic party as it is?

    Great post. I was hoping to be able to comment “well, it’s all over now and you won’t have to worry about Bill and his idiot comments for the rest of the campaign”, but the Pennsylvania primary didn’t work out that way.

    Serious if snide question: Do you think Bill could be getting Alzheimer’s or using too many drugs or something? His denial was just bizarre.

  18. Diane,

    I am starting to wonder if he’s doing these things deliberately to sabotage her campaign.

  19. I am starting to wonder if he’s doing these things deliberately to sabotage her campaign.

    Definitely a possibility.

  20. He’s playing the white card – you know, the one that trumps EVERYTHING!

  21. Stuff like this is why I was always wary of Black people embracing Bill as an honorary black in the first place! He was admittedly better than the alternative in the past, but still. Anyway, I think their better days have passed and that Bill did tacky stuff in his heyday anyway. FATHER BILL is like anyone else generally, but as far as me and some black people go, he got his O.K. points-or at least had his O.K. points, but he ain’t enfallible. He nor his wife is entitled to our vote?

  22. […] Bill Clinton can kiss my ass. For […]

  23. I am starting to wonder if he’s doing these things deliberately to sabotage her campaign.

    I agree this is a possibility. While watching her give her victory speech in PA, the camera panned to Bill a couple of times and the look on his face was not one of pride or happiness. It’s hard to describe but maybe it was envy or jealousy.

  24. “Let her go be John McCain’s biyatch”

    Ya know, there’s no need to call Hillary a “bitch” here. Don’t like her, fine. But, really, I’m not up for hearing sexist crap today, any more than I was up for hearing Bill Clinton’s racist rant. But you just made my day all over again.

    Totally agree with the post here. Bill needs to just STFU!

  25. Genius. I’m bending over with you. Both sides, Bill, both sides.

  26. From Blacks4Barack…(Great Post ABW) THE BLACK VOTE IS THE KEY THIS TUESDAY !!!The media thinks that blacks are absolutely stupid. They’ve been watching the powerful solidarity in the black community during this campaign and they’re hoping we’re stupid enough to lose focus and become divided over the media created Rev. Wright situation. Keep in mind….in Pa. 92% of all black voters voted for Obama. That’s powerful ! Only one problem….not enough registered black voters actually voted !!!! This Tuesday…May 6th….EVERY Black voter MUST VOTE in N. Carolina and Indiana !!!!! BECOME A VOLUNTEER….MAKE PHONE CALLS….TAKE SOMEONE TO THE POLLS….CARPOOL…This Tuesday, the most important vote will be the black vote. When we go out in record numbers, the DNC and superdelegates will know that we are united for Obama…and the Re-Birth of America. This is it ! It is your responsibilty to GET FIRED UP !!!! Not only for yourself….but for the future of your children.
    p.s. Hillary Clinton has still not made a comment on the Sean Bell killing which occured in her state.

    Visit: http://www.Blacks4Barack.org for Phone Bank Volunteer (make calls from your home)info and Much More ! Over this weekend…send comments everywhere (particularly Indiana & N.Carolina)to get our people fired up !!!!

    p.s.s. Did you hear???? Some Hillary superdelgates (Joe Andrew, Indiana)have SWITCHED to Obama today !!!!MORE TO COME…THEY’RE WATCHING US !!!!

    Say It Loud…BARACK & I’M PROUD !!!
