It’s Okay If You’re A Republican, Chapter 479

Imagine for a moment that the Tea Party is holding a massive, peaceful series of demonstrations on the National Mall in Washington in opposition to a new Democratic initiative.  A blogger posing as George Soros gets Barack Obama on the phone and records the following conversation:

SOROS:  Well, we’ll back you any way we can. But, uh, what we were thinking about the crowds was, uh, was planting some troublemakers.

OBAMA: You know, the, well, the only problem with that — because we thought about that. My only fear would be is if there was a ruckus caused is that would scare the public into thinking maybe the president has gotta cave to avoid all these problems. Um, so that’s my gut reaction, is that I think it’s actually good if they’re constant, they’re noisy, but they’re quiet, nothing happens, ’cause sooner or later the media stops finding ’em interesting.

SOROS:  Well, not the conservative bastards on Fox.

OBAMA:  Oh, yeah, but who watches that? I went on “Fox and Friends” this morning. I like it ’cause I just like being combative with those guys, but, uh. You know they’re off the deep end.

SOROS:  Shepard Smith — Shep’s a good guy. He’s one of us.

OBAMA: Yeah, he’s all right. He was fair to me, I mean, the rest of them were out there. Although I had fun.

SOROS:  Beautiful, beautiful. But you gotta love that Gretchen Carlson.

OBAMA:  Oh, yeah.

SOROS:  She’s a piece of ass.

Holy shit, Batman!  The media — and not just the right-wing media — would be going ballistic over this.  CNN would be talking about impeachment.  David Broder would be stroking out.

I’ll admit I edited the transcript a little, but the preceding is essentially a segment of the conversation that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker had with the guy pretending to be billionaire Republican greedhead David Koch.

Where is the outrage?



  1. They’d be having lynching parties all over the U.S. if Obama said those things.

  2. “David Broder would be stroking out.”
