Nora Ephron asks the HUffies about "White Men"



Whomever the Democratics nominate this time, it will be a first: It will NOT be a white male (unless you count Barry as half-white or Hillary as ha--uh, let's not go there). Identity Politics has driven the Democrat race. Guilt-racked whites, wanting to appear enlightened, have supported the clean and articulate Magic Negro. They were joined finally by blacks, when Bill's dismissive South Carolina comments made them decide Barack was black enough. Meanwhile, old feminist teacher-union types have been supporting Hillary!.

But Identity Politics will not be enough to win in November. In order to succeed, the Dem candidate will HAVE TO attract some degree of the white male vote. So now, on the eve of the Pennsylvania primary, the Keystone State becomes a test case. Will Barry's recent gaffes hurt him with Typical White Persons? Will Operation Chaos crossover voters help Hillary? Which of the two can woo the Pennsylvania Democrats who, to quote an MSNBC description, are "Hunters, Bowlers, Beer Drinkers, and Gun Owners"?

But before we continue, let us first thank Barry for his commments about small-town folk being "bitter" and "clinging to guns and religion." This was a master stroke, Barry, to ensure that Operation Chaos will continue! And even if you get the nomination, this will haunt you in the general election! So here is my brand-new musical tribute, "My Bitter Town." Click the tune and sing along!





MY BITTER TOWN
Tune: "My Little Town" Original

In my little town
We grow up by clingin'
To God and the gun on the wall
And we welcome strangers warmly
If they bear a likeness to us all
Angry and small
My bitter town

Comin' home from the Klan
Burnin' a cross on the lawns
Of the immigrants
Our town holdin' a rally
Wearin' our sheets
With the pointy hats

We take off our robes
For the square dance
And none of the dancers are black
It's not that the dancers aren't square
It's just a pigmentation we lack
Everyone's a redneck
In my bitter town

Nothin' but some av'rage whites
Here in my bitter town
Nothin' but some av'rage whites
Here in my bitter town

In my bitter town
I never vote Democrat
I'm just a Republican
Drivin' my pick-up
Pickin' a brick up
Typical right-winger
See me clingin' to my gun

Seein' nothin' but some av'rage whites
Here in my bitter town
Nothin' but some av'rage whites
Here in my bitter town
Nothin' but some av'rage whites
Here in my bitter town . . .

Who can win these bitter whites? Lefty writer Nora Ephron ("When Harry Met Sally," "Silkwood," "Sleepless in Seattle") takes up this question in her HUffPo
THREAD, "White Men." In less than 24 hours, Nora's diary has elicited literally a THOUSAND comments from the HUffies! This is way more than I can read, and there's enough here just with Nora! Nora! Nora!

So let us now proceed with her White-Men bashing, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your guest correspondent, longtime white male Charles Henrickson, wondering if Li'l Beaver will be allowed to vote in Beaver Falls, is in the [Barackets]:

it's suddenly horribly absolutely crystal-clear that this is an election about gender and race.

[Thank you, Comrade Obvious.]

This is an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women.

[It's about whether DEMOCRATS hate blacks or women more. All the HillAryans are racists, and all the Obambats are sexists!]

And when I say people, I don't mean people, I mean white men.

[Oh, I forgot: Only WHITE MEN can be racist or sexist! And apparently, white men do not qualify as "people."]

To put it bluntly, the next president will be elected by them. . . .

[To put it more bluntly: President McCain.]

the outcome of Tuesday's primary will depend on whether they go for Hillary or Obama. . . .

[Tough choice. When was the last time a white man went for Hillary? Or to put it another way, how old is Chelsea?]

white men cannot be relied on, as all of us know who have spent a lifetime dating them.

[When was the last time a white man went for you, Nora?]

As for the Democratic hope that McCain's temper will be a problem, don't bet on it. A lot of white men have terrible tempers, and what's more, they think it's normal.

[SHUT YOUR FREAKIN' MOUTH!!!]

If Hillary pulls it out in Pennsylvania, and she could, and if she follows it up in Indiana, she can make a credible case that she deserves to be the candidate. . . .

[WHEEEEEEE!!!!!! Isn't Operation Chaos FUn?!]

these last primaries will show which of the two Democratic candidates is better at overcoming the bias of a vast chunk of the population. . . .

[How do you figure, Nora? If they vote for Hillary, they're racist. If they vote for Barry, they're sexist. They're biased either way!]

Hillary's case is not an attractive one. . . .

[Her "case"? Is that short for "pantsuit-face-voice-and-body"?]

what she'll essentially be saying . . . is that she can attract more racist white male voters than Obama can.

[All your racist white male base are belong to us!]

Hillary is the true whack-a-mole. . . .

[She takes a licking and keeps on ticking!]

if she survives on Tuesday, it will be a whole new ballgame. And it will be all because of white men.

[WOO-HOO! White men rule!!]

Let me see if I have this right. A bitter, old white woman, who has spent most of her life living with very liberal white male Democrats thinks that white men are fundamentally both racists and sexists and the only real question is whether Hillary! or Obamessiah can 'hoodwink' the larger portion of them.

Have I got that right.

And, oddly enough, I'm willing to bet that she doesn't see why her condescension irritates "the typical white male" at all. I guess as a "typical white male" I'm just too stupid not to get fooled by one of them.

I must remember to thank the gracious intellectual royalty Nora Ephron for pointing out one of the larger of my many shortcomings.

Thanks, Nora, thanks a lot.

I'm taking it this chick dosen't like white men.

How sad that this twit's little life is so based on identity politics, that she's focused all her hate, anger, and blame on an entire gender of one race. And all that she does is actuated through this hatred caused by her moron leftwing ideaology. It's almost pitiful, yet mockable.

Nora sounds pretty uptight in her writing...I'm sure there's some bitter, God clinging, gun toting, angry white man out there; that would be willing to help her with this problem. Not me...I quit drinking.

Bunch of Sparkle Ponies here, folks.

But let's get down to the heart of the matter (where my will gets weak...)

I'm calling bullshit. PJ's second sentence is, "Identity Politics has driven the Democrat race."

Then he launches into "Guilt-racked whites, wanting to appear enlightened, have supported the clean and articulate Magic Negro. They were joined finally by blacks, when Bill's dismissive South Carolina comments made them decide Barack was black enough. Meanwhile, old feminist teacher-union types have been supporting Hillary!."

This is extremely confusing unless PJ is subtly giving us a lesson in 'How Dems Use Identity Politics'.

He somberly goes on to say that "...Identity Politics will not be enough to win in November". Then happily asks, "Which of the two can woo the Pennsylvania Democrats who, to quote an MSNBC description, are "Hunters, Bowlers, Beer Drinkers, and Gun Owners"?

Just what is Identity Politics anyway? I think PJ's pretty much got it. Nice job, dude.

Nora's piece is about as shallow, simpleminded and childishly manipulative as they come.

Fodder for the ultraleft, she neglects the candidates other attributes, such as Bill Clinton, the "Tuzla Dash", every illegal Chinese campaign contribution, Socialized medicine, etc., etc.

For Barry? Well, his Mickey Mouse Club of Ayers, Wright, Rezko, his wife, being THE most liberal senator in the senate... and so on, are pretty good "other" reasons.

I don't even scratch the surface here, in terms of the Dem candidates downsides... and I certainly don't even have to bother getting to their sex or race.

They're crap WAAAAAAAAAY before that!

Well, I have an easy answer to the problem of gender identity in politics. As a Typical White Male, I think we should end women's suffrage! That way gender identity will not be in the equation and the problem of gender identity having too much of an influence in elections will disappear. Heh.

You're an idiot. Would you like me to link up a whole load of conservative jack-off's insulting libs, dems, gays, blacks, women, hispanics, Russians, Jews, and absolutely everyfuckingbody else? I can do it. So can you. What it boils down to, anon, is that you're a whiner wuss. What's your best bowling score, anyway? And don't pretend it doesn't matter. Ever tasted arugala, anon? If you have...well we all know the consequences.

You've been reduced to discussing bowling and arugala. Pathetic. Admit it.

I grew-up and live in rural Puget Sound. Orchards, horses and goats (impending ridicule and certain doom, I know). So...um... "spittle-flecked metrosexual non-typical white males..." is entirely your tiny little invention, dave. Maybe you could elaborate. You're safe here.

Awww, Trog seems a very upset and very bitter! It's almost as if he's having a lot of trouble controlling his pent up anger. I wonder what could be making him so upset?

What's the matter Trog, did Hillary piss in your Obama Wheaties this morning? Well, breath deep the gathering gloom, Trog, for your party's dying and there's nothing you can do to prevent it.

The difference, anon, is that the Liberals can dish it out, but they can't take it. The say if you don't vote for Obama, then you're a racist and if you don't vote for Hillary, then you hate women. The fact is I can eliminate either one as my candidate of choice based on their political views and not their color or gender. I can intelligently separate them from their outside packages...something Liberals haven't quite been able to handle yet.

Oh, and my highest bowling score is a 201 and I have tasted arugula. I prefer red leaf lettuce as it's much less bitter. Maybe you're in need of a change of diet yourself as you sound a bit constipated.

As a Conservative and a Feminist (in the grand old sense of the word), I find Ephron amusingly out of date. She's still screeching 1970's angry, Harpy, Women's Lib nonsense.

The stupid little bitch needs to grow up, wake up, and catch up.

Please. Is there something, anything, out there that can substantiate your claim that "if you don't vote for Obama, then you're a racist and if you don't vote for Hillary, then you hate women"? Let me save you the trouble. Nope. You're making it all up my little Sparkle Pony.

And I'm a real-life Lib. Why don't you perform a little experiment to see if I, troglaman, "can dish it out but can't take it." It'll be fun.

To summarize...anon's full of it regarding the "racist/sexist" crap and we'll see if he takes advantage of his once-in-a-lifetime scientific opportunity.

Move on, folks. Nothing bitter here. Obama's an elitist. Just keep repeating that over and over again.

The Cherry flavor is the bomb. Cherry Kool Aid mixed with 2 cups of sugar becomes a heavenly delight dry (eaten with a wet index finger) or wet (add water). We are talkin' sweet, people, not bitter.

Obama is an elitist in private who speaks like a populist in public. i.e., a hypocrite.
