Pennies from Heaven

Other than white Christians from the south and female governors from the far north, is there a group of people the Republican party hasn’t insulted, defamed or trashed yet?

a letter from the South Carolina Times & Democrat:

Recently your newspaper published a letter from state Rep. Bakari Sellers attacking U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and his opposition to congressional earmarks.

There is a saying that the Jews who are wealthy got that way not by watching dollars, but instead by taking care of the pennies and the dollars taking care of themselves. By not using earmarks to fund projects for South Carolina and instead using actual bills, DeMint is watching our nation’s pennies and trying to preserve our country’s wealth and our economy’s viability to give all an opportunity to succeed.

blah blah blah

and then it is signed:

− Edwin O. Merwin Jr., Chairman, Bamberg County Republican Party, Denmark
− James S. Ulmer Jr., Chairman, Orangeburg County Republican Party, North

two old relics of the South, or should I say the Nuremberg rallies. Well Messrs Merwin and Ulmer, this Jew with the big nose will gladly send you his pennies that I have been saving since I found the first one on the street (since that is the way I got rich according to you), as long as you promise to drop them on your head. Defending a bigoted Senator using stereotypes about Jews – what a way to win the hearts of minds of the non-Southern Christians and non-far north Governors.

What a state – South Carolina. Sanford, Lindseypoo, Demint, Joe Wilson, and now these two who grew up reading The Protocols of the Elders of Zion instead of Dr. Seuss. Who had the great idea to force these people back into the Union in 1861? Oh Lincoln – a Republican. If Lincoln saw his party today he would have called Fort Sumter a blessing in disguise.



  1. Insulting cultural stereotypes are OK, as long as they are about money and big noses. Didn't you get the memo?

  2. should we hold our breath until jim demented chastises tweedledumb and tweedledumber for their…let's call it insensitivity? in the meantime, let's pelt them both with matzoh balls and gefilte fish.

  3. It appears, Texas and Utah have competition for Taliban status.The thing I don't understand is why the South Carolina legislature can't figure out how to remove Gov. Mark Sanford from office?Surely, the state AG can direct lawmakers how to make this happen?

  4. fu

  5. i am going to leave the chickenshit anonymous comment up

  6. One day South Carolina will set foot into the new century. The 20th Century.

  7. Hi Cap;Every time in history, when society is under stress and with the official poverty status in the US at being around 47 million, the stress is real, they lash out at others for their problems.If it isn't Jews, it is Christians, Atheists, Gays, brown people, black people, orientals anyone they feel is different enough to pose as a target for venom.That is the problem with mankind. They can't stand up and be responsible for their own lives, they blame someone else.I know Jews who do not have much coin, really good people. I know gays, Christians, Palestinians and others who are good people as well.What I mean as "good", they look after their families, are loving people who do not wish harm on anyone. Live and let live is their motto for the most part.I do not have patience for painting an entire culture or society with one color based on the actions of a few.

  8. I'm so sick of the Jews getting all the credit for secretly running the world when it's actually us atheists. Bad enough Santa gets credit for presents *I* bought.

  9. I thought it was Norwegians that picked up pennies? I live in a Norwegian neighborhood and you NEVER see any pennies on the sidewalk…. sure are a lotta Kroner, though!

  10. Yeah yeah, Texas is just as bad. Bullshit.Texas brought the world Ann Richards, Molly Ivins, Willie Nelson, the Dixie Chicks, Bill Moyer, Dan Rather, Janis Joplin, Alvin Ailee, Gene Roddenberry, Sandra Day O'Connor, Tommy Tune, Buddy Holly, Jim Hightower, Lyndon Johnson, Denton Cooley MD and Karen Fuckin' Zipdrive.Who has South Carolina given the world?Sure, we have our share of backwards politicians but Texas is a huge state.As for the Jewish slurs, Kinky Friedman, who calls himself the Texas Jewboy, is running for Governor as a Democrat.Any Jewboys running for anything in Utah or South Carolina?I didn't think so.

  11. P.S. I pick up pennies wherever I find them and stash them in a little milk bottle. I'm not a miser, I just think 100 pennies equal a dollar and I like dollars.

  12. //…and Karen Fuckin' Zipdrive//Ok. Break me up!!! 🙂 I keep my pennies in a beer bottle! One of these days I'm gonna buy me a whole case!

  13. One thing about those Republicans… they're equal-opportunity bigots.

  14. Don't they still fly the Confederate flag at the capitol in South Carolina?

  15. Now Karen, SC has given us "South of the Border." See? As for the editorial, I heard that it was so obviously offensive that even that thick-headed piece of shit DeMint had to repudiate it. That had to hurt. Assholes.

  16. Hey DC, just a quick note to let you know that I’m back blogging about politics. It’s nearly been a year and I think the vacation is over. I can now be found at will soon get around to updating my linkage!

  17. Ouch!I'm now afraid to mention the good people I know that are not bigots or racists in SC. Yes, there are quite a few – they just can't get elected anymore.We are all ashamed at how low the standard has fallen since big Strom.Fritz Hollings was among the first to declare opposition in the Senate to the Vietnam War you know. I spoke with him during one of my trips to D.C. against the war and he was extremely courteous and very attentive to our arguments before telling us that he wished he could have been on the ramparts with us!.You do good work!Love ya,S

  18. Just when you think they've sunk as low as they can, they outdo themselves. I think we'll see some more doozies in the coming years.

  19. Karen Fuckin' Zipdrive indeed. Texas has also given me other fierce friends, the majority of whom are out, loud and proud. Although none of them can equal the great KZ.Frankly the whole canard of dumping any one group into the bad column – be it a state, a state of mind, a political party, a country, a race, a gender, a whatever is really a big pile of horseshit.If someone says to be that "all gays are dangerous" and I counter that, or "all liberals are stupid" or whatever- then what is the point of changing their minds if we can't change our own?We all do it or have done it, but honestly- is there a point?Just sayin.P.S. OK, all Birthers can probably be lumped into one big pile. That much I will go with.
