Tea, Anyone?

Uh, oh…  Trouble in Tea Party Land.  Here’s something from the web today:

Tea Party leaders in Arkansas are on the defensive after a board member of a Tea Party group in the Ozarks (Inge Marler) made a racist joke at a rally over the weekend drawing laughs from the audience.  The Baxter Bulletin reports that Marler … said the following as an ice-breaker in her speech:

A black kid asks his mom, ‘Mama, what’s a democracy?

“Well, son, that be when white folks work every day so us po’ folks can get all our benefits.

But mama, don’t the white folk get mad about that?

They sho do, son. They sho do. And that’s called racism.

Holy crap!  Are you kidding?  Who wrote that?  Mark Twain?  And has the balls to tell this joke in public?  Answer:  Nobody.  Inge Marler is a woman!  No balls whatsoever.  I didn’t check, but the Tea Party doesn’t let in shemales, so I’m guessing that no balls are there.  Not even little furry ones.  Anyway, she might as well have told this one:

A black woman was filling out forms at the welfare office. Under “Number of children,” she wrote “10,” and where it said “List names of children,” she wrote “Leroy.” When she handed in the form, the woman behind the desk said: “You’re supposed to write the names of each one of your children.” “Dey all named Leroy,” said the black woman. “That’s very unusual. When you call them, how do they know which one you want?” asked the welfare worker. “Oh, den I uses the last names.”

Was that racist enough?  It was?  Good.  Tea Party Seal of Approval!  But, Inge’s joke was funny, though!  Ha ha ha ha ha, uh… huh?  Actually, it’s not.  If she wanted an ice breaker joke for her speech, she should have called me.  I would have given her one that would have KILLED!  Example:

Why did the boy drop his ice cream cone?  Answer:  He was hit by a car!

Didn’t like that one?  OK…

What’s red and smells like blue paint?  Answer:  Red paint!

Oh, shut up.  What do you know about good jokes?  Those ARE good and you know it.

Look, Inge baby…  let me give you some advice now that you’ve stuck your high heel into your Swedish heritage mouth.  The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.  And I have a feeling that you will need them.  Soon.  Nobody is listening to your Tea Party speech.  Well, nobody until you make a mistake.  Now, EVERYBODY is listening.  So, good job on that.

Leave the black jokes to Chris Rock.  That dude is funny.
