It is with some embarrassment that I must admit that state senator Leland Yee is from California. We need another wing nut like Cuba needs sugar.
For those of you who have not heard of Yee, he is the latest humorless, self-hating, liberal xenophobe to label a white guy racist for doing a good imitation of Mandarin. The white guy in question being Rush Limbaugh.
Where is Sidney Toler when we really need him?
Yee’s consternation stems from Limbaugh’s January 19 broadcast in which the radio icon complained that Chinese leader Hu Jintao was speaking without translation during a joint press conference with President Obama.
“Normally, you’d have somebody translate every couple of words,” Limbaugh explained, “but Hu Jintao was just going ‘ching cha, ching chow cho cha, chan cha ching, chee ba ba ba, hon chong hee, ee kah ah ahh! Che, cheech eh! Jing ja, bo ba, ya ya, cha che cheech che! Cha gee! Doohhh, kit bah le bah! Bah, cheech cho bah!’”
“Nobody was translating,” Limbaugh concluded, “but that’s as close as I can get.”
Of course Limbaugh stepped over the line, because everyone knows that the only racial group not off limits for ridicule, rude jokes, racial humor or extermination for simply existing is the white race.
Add one octogenarian sheriff from Pima County Arizona and you have what is known in the biz as “legs.”
Yep, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik is on board and launching a full scale investigation into a fax received by Yee from an alleged Limbaugh fan, after Yee went public calling for Limbaugh to apologize and flog himself with a cat-o’-nine-tails while crawling up the Via Dolorosa.
Coincidentally, Yee is a San Francisco mayoral hopeful. Surprise, surprise!
The last I looked San Francisco wasn’t in Arizona, but Dumbnik is allowed a twilight moment, now and then.
But for the grand prize in our Wing Nut of the Week Award—drum roll, please—New York Rep. Jim Moran!
Gotta love this guy.
When a United States congressman can go before Alhurra—that’s George W. Bush’s brilliant brainchild, “Radio Free Islam,” for the uninformed—and blame the November 2010 Republican landslide on racism, we have serious grounds for involuntary commitment.
“It [the Republican successes in the 2010 elections] happened for the same reason the Civil War happened in the United States. It happened because the Southern states, the slaveholding states, didn’t want to see a president who was opposed to slavery.
“In this case, I believe, a lot of people in the United States don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is liberal, who wants to spend money and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society….”
Goodnight and Good Ruck.
