Not Like They Thought It Would Be.

Ahhh those Republicans...When will they ever learn?   They had a "leadership " conference in New Orleans recently and of course they didn't really discuss leadership or policy...You can't discuss what you don't have or know about..so they decided to do the only thing they have been good at...Roasting President Obama.

They wheeled out, Comedian and Obama impersonator, Reggie Brown...As long as he was making fun of Barrack and Michelle Obama...everything was cool...but as soon as he began making fun of the "front runners", there's that funny term again....He got the hook...

Comedian, Reggie Brown, who hails from Chicago, opened his act by joking about Mr. Obama’s family history, referring to his white mother from Kansas and his black father from Kenya. He said that he was born in Hawaii, adding, “or as the Tea Partiers like to call it, Kenya.” The Republicans yukked it up..they loved it.

He then said that Michelle Obama, the first lady, enjoys celebrating all of February, Black History Month. He said the president celebrates only half the month. Again...The Republicans yukked it up more!

“My mother loved a black man and, no, she was not a Kardashian,” Mr. Brown said later, referring to the family that stars in reality shows. Khloe Kardashian, who is white, is married to Lamar Odom, who is black and plays for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The audience, which was of course nearly entirely white, watched with befuddlement as the impersonator told them to look into the future to see what the Obamas will look like when they are retired. An image of a feuding Fred Sanford and Aunt Ester, from the 70's TV show “Sanford and Son,” was flashed on screens in the ballroom.

They don't know about that....Of course they should..depending on their age! But it was after all a BLACK show...They probably didn't watch it!

The Louisiana Republican Party hired Mr. Brown, who has spent years refining his impression of Mr. Obama, to appear during the afternoon session of the party’s three-day gathering. He also made derogatory jokes about Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich before his hosts cut him off with loud music and escorted him from the stage before his act was over.

The act, which included a fake Secret Service detail, a recorded video address from the Oval Office and a presidential seal, came one day after Govs. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana urged fellow Republicans to stay disciplined — and focused on economic issues — in their quest to defeat Mr. Obama next year.

The act included photographs of Anthony D. Weiner, a Democrat who resigned his seat in Congress because of lewd pictures he sent to some of his Twitter followers. Then, the impersonator turned to the implosion of Mr. Gingrich’s campaign, after many of his aides resigned 10 days ago, saying, “His supporters are dropping faster than Anthony Weiner’s pants.”

This was definitely not funny to the Republicans and the Tea Party crowd and just like on the gong show...He got pulled off the stage.  You know what really galls me?? Some of these people had the nerve to say that they thought some of Reggie Brown's jokes were RACIST!!! Can you believe that?? Racist?? Coming from this crowd???   Listen....If the Republicans and the Tea Party don't do anything else....They provide me with more laughs than I can imagine in the course of a day!

Get over it....At the end of the day...He's still the President.....You'll be alright!

See ya in 2012!
