Another Hollywood Idiot

***This time it's Samuel L. Jackson. These people really are despicable, and a huge reason I never go to the movies.

Samuel L. Jackson on Monday tweeted it was "unfair" that Tropical Storm Isaac had spared the GOP convention in Tampa and appeared to be heading for New Orleans.
Jackson said in a profanity-filled tweet that he was "not understanding God's plan" given the fact that the storm was not disrupting the Republican gathering.

"Unfair s---," the Oscar-nominated actor known for his colorful language said on Twitter. "GOP spared by Isaac! NOLA prolly f----- again!"
Less than a half-hour later, Jackson apologized for the earlier tweet, writing that it had stirred up a hornet's nest. "Apologies to God, Tampa, da GOP& Isaac(sp)! Who played the Race card?!," he said on Twitter.

What a jerk.

***Priebus hits back. Good for him.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was not impressed with MSNBC's Chris Matthew's shot at the GOP who said on his Monday evening program, when discussing Mitt Romney's sarcastic reference to President Obama's birth certificate recently:
“That cheap shot about ‘I don’t have a problem with my birth certificate’ was awful. You are playing that little ethnic card there. You can play your games and giggle about it, but the fact is your side is playing that card.”
I spoke with Chairman Priebus who responded, "I didn’t even know that this was that big of a deal. Chris…he wants to be the biggest jerk in the room. That’s fine. He can take that mantle."
Priebus added, "The fact the matter is it’s only hurting his own candidate, Barack Obama, by acting like that. It just highlights the fact that these guys have no message other than being nasty. I don’t really care what he thinks or what he says. He has about ten viewers on his show. He can have them."

But despite this electoral history, there were telltale signs that Mr. Davis was different. He voted against ObamaCare. He told me he thought the plan was “too unpredictable, too expensive, and not actually going to help people in the manner it was intended.” He came out in favor of voter ID, which is loathed by most Black officials, adding that 60% of Black voters support common-sense voter ID laws, and that they have been in place for years in Alabama with no negative effects. Davis has little patience for those who accuse opponents of Obama’s policies of racism. He believes that in a democracy, it is the obligation of the opposition to clearly and cogently voice their concerns with the policies of the party in power. To call that racism because the office holder is Black degrades the political process.

Read the whole thing. Great story.

Golden Rules:
If you open it, close it.
If you turn it on, turn it off.
If you unlock it, lock it up.
If you break it, admit it.
If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.
If you borrow it, return it.
If you value it, take care of it.
If you make a mess, clean it up.
If you move it, put it back.
If it belongs to someone else and you want to use, get permission.
If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.
If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.
If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.
