Things That Are Making Minnesota Look Bad (and Also Making My Head Explode)

Chris Baker’s Trifecta of Ridiculousness

  1. On Tuesday this week Chris Baker of conservative talk radio station KTLK calls Barack Obama a “little bitch.”
  2. On Wednesday of this week Chris Baker promotes a video of a pastor who calls Barack Obama’s mother “trash.”
  3. Also on Wednesday of this week Chris Baker’s co-host Langdon Perry says Magic Johnson faked having AIDS, and Chris Baker agrees.

This woman in Lakeville today. From The Uptake:

Gayle Quinnel, a John McCain supporter says at a McCain Rally that “Obama is an Arab”. She is quickly corrected by John McCain who takes away her microphone.

Quinnel of Shakopee says she obtained the information on Obama being an Arab at “her local library” and from a pamphlet obtained at a local McCain campaign office (provided by a fellow volunteer not the campaign itself).

She has taken it upon herself to redistribute the information as widely as possible by making copies of the pamphlet and sending it to random names in the phone book.

I love how John McCain, refuting her statement, says that Barack Obama is “a decent family man, a citizen” as if Arabic people are not. Hello, fearmongering!

My antidote to that little old lady from Shakopee is this little old lady from Texas.

    I saw the Quinnell thing in the Strib today. How utterly, utterly scary. And isn’t it about time McCain took a stronger stand–it is NOT in any way appropriate for his fans to be calling "off with his head" and "kill him" when he speaks of Obama. "Let’s be respectful"? Yeah, that’ll help.

    I had heard about the Magic Johnson thing. How are these guys still on the air?
