Colin Powell: Just Another Scary Black Dude After All!

posted by on October 17 at 16:06 PM

This is up at Drudge…


Gee, I wonder why Matt Drudge would choose to illustrate a story about Powell possibly endorsing Obama with an image of Powell with a couple of rappers and not, say, Powell with one of the three Republican presidents he advised? Or Powell in uniform? Or Powell in Kuwait? Man, that’s a brain teaser.

Powell could have offered McCain the endorsement, to which McCain replied, a colon what, no I'm sure I've already had one, but thanks.

because drudge is a hack which we already knew.

Do you spend all day fretting about how the Star chose the latest close up of cellulite-ridden celebrity ass cheeks for the new cover?

Why even bring up Matt Drudge? The guy's 15 minutes came and went well over ten years ago...

in his defense, he excercised more restraint than fox news:

drudge is a douche who should be THOROUGHLY IGNORED. even when he's right occasionally right about something. because, he's, you know, a total douche.

In the same week, Powell endorses Ted Stevens' integrity ... and he could have had the White House for the asking in 2000, in which case we wouldn't have had all these troubles for all these years. (Also, he might have had some idea what a President does - unlike Obama.)

Because Drudge is a fucking bag of douche.

Why even read Drudge at this point?

OK all you anti-racist Obama supporters (including Dan). What have you ever done to advocate for racial justice locally?

Black Republicans don't endorse Democrats. Besides that, Powell is like Rice and Clarence Thomas, fucked in the head.

Do you know how much the Internet could use a Savage/Drudge blogfight? Very.
