"I didn't say black people, I said fat people!"

"I still believe there are people who vote in Maine who are not residents in some of the towns and that was my point. It wasn't that they were black or chinese or they were obese, it wasnt like that it's that if you live in a small town and someone comes in and weighs 400 lbs, you usually know who that person is."

7. Yes, it's a disease and it's highly contagious.

Idiots are more prone to Republicanism and it can't be cured.

2. 2 stupid 2 take

the only way a voter gets to vote is to be a registered voter ........
so not unless those "black votes" had same day voter registration
or were using the names of different voters they must be legit
voters ...... but to some GOP people ANY BLACK VOTER = voter
fraud

************

Barack Obama 397,754 56.0%
Mitt Romney 290,437 40.9%
Others 22,547 3.2%

So 107,000 african americans snuck into small maine towns and voted illegally?

10. The crazies in Romney camp thought they could get one EV from Maine

in our 2nd district. But these black people came in and stole it for Obama.

19. The white people in this district obviously don't "see" the black people

they are so sure just appeared out of thin air. If they would pay better attention, they would actually "see" the people who live in that district.

These idiots are so friggin' clueless.

11. OK what Charlie's saying is?

Any prospective voter who isn't white and normal weight, who Charlie doesn't know, is suspect. Any normal weight white person is automatically presumed innocent. The rest of us not so much. Now the Repugs know how to throw an election in Maine and we know what they're up to. Hoist on yer own petard, buddy.

13. Webster keeps track of people by their color, ethnic origin, body size, probably religion as well

Probably knows who drives what car, who does and doesn't attend church, who's gay and so on....Just another sad little venomous, racist Puker.
