The first concerns an effort by a group calling itself the “Southern Legal Resource Center”. They are urging Southerners to describe themselves as "Confed Southern Am" on the census form.
From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
“A significant number of Southerners identifying themselves as Confederate Southern Americans on the Census form could finally spell the beginning of the end for the discrimination that has been running rampant, especially for the last 20 years or so, against all things Confederate, and for that matter against Southern heritage and identity in general,” SLRC executive director Roger McCredie said in a written statement.The best comment on this story comes from one of the best commentators on teh Wonkette, "Prommie" (if that is his/her real name):
So, the theory these fucktards are trying to work is that racist redneck fucktard hillbillies are a protected class under Title 7 on account of “national origin,” in that they are descended from citizens of the confederate states of amurrica.
This is totallly fucktarded. What they should be doing is seeking protected status under the Americans with Disabilities Act, on the grounds that they are fucktarded. They could use their own legal arguments as proof they are fucktarded, in a unique application of res ipsa loquitor.
Meanwhile, it turns out Pat Sajack is a rich, right-wing gasbag! Who knew? Sajack is not so much for the new health care law. I might not be much for "Wheel of Fortune" anymore. Perhaps I should let them know. Anyway, the point is, who cares what Pat Sajack thinks?
Some comments then:
- Funny since Pat is probably a millionaire several times over–so worried that other folks are going to get something he already has. He needs to go back to his Playboy wife & stick to educating folks about the difference between vowels & consonants.
- P_t S_j_k is RET_RDED Pat I’d like to solve the puzzle.
