They just don't get it

Sen. Jim DeMint (I[becile]-SC) displays as much insight, rhetoric, and knowledge of history and politics as wingnut congress-critters usually do:

Sen. Jim DeMint,...told the GOP that defeating health care reform would “break” Obama.
I love when those fuckers try to talk tough. A fucking MBA from Clemson, insistent upon school prayer and outlawing abortion, requiring all illegal immigrants currently in the United States to return to their home countries, English as USA official language, tried to strip all federal funding from Berkeley CA because of political protests there, opposes any funding for bicycle trails or alternate energy, favors banning gays from teaching in public schools, wants to forbid single female educators from cohabiting with live-in lovers, member of the C-Street cult.

All these fuckers, who have been the recipient of the nauseatingly comprehensive privilege available to white, male, heterosexual members of the DC establishment, who somehow think that talking tough is going to make them tough. It's like Sarah Palin trying to diss Obama. It's like Karl Rove threatening Patrick Fitzgerald. It tells you just how isolated is the bubble in which they live--they can't tell the difference between talking tough and being tough. In the world they live in, there is no difference.

But that is not the world in which real people live. And when you talk smack to somebody who did grow up tough, they're likely to laugh in your face. Chris Rock said "I'm from fuckin' Brooklyn. I ain't scared of no Al Qaeda--I'm scared of Al-Cracker."

And when, as a white, male, heterosexual recipient of nauseatingly comprehensive privilege, you try to talk smack to a tough community organizer from Chicago, you're likely to get bitch-slapped. Obama said:
"I'm from Chicago. I don't break."
Those fuckers don't even realize how much they are outgunned.

But they will. They most definitely will.
