Because, in this state, some of the Democrats are cringe-inducingly stupid and I’d rather have “B–Liberal” in people’s minds than “B–Democrat”. Because the stupid? Ugh. Like, say, Beecher Fraiser and Fred Hobbs* who think that Barack Obama might be a terrorist or at least a terrorist sympathizer.
“Maybe [it’s] the same reason I don’t want to — I don’t exactly approve of a lot of the things he stands for and I’m not sure we know enough about him,” Hobbs said when asked why he thought Davis wasn’t endorsing Obama. “He’s got some bad connections, and he may be terrorist connected for all I can tell. It sounds kind of like he may be.”
And, according to the TNDems, who’s fault is this?
How? How in the world is this the part of the Republicans? The Republicans in our state think someone would go to the trouble of faking Barack Obama’s birth certificate. They have the stupidist ideas for conspiracy theories ever! How are they concocting mind control devices that then allow them to turn Fred Hobbs into Bill Ho…
Oh my god.
Do you think that the TNDems just heard “Hobbs” and started shooting of their mouths about how much Hobbs sucks thinking this controversy was about the Republican Hobbs?
*Does having that name turn you into an evil idiot? Because that’s the orange cat’s name and he does indeed sometimes spitefully pee on things, but often things he later wants to sleep on, but can’t because they smell like pee.
Edited to Add: Ah, but the other Hobbs does have a hand in this. Silly me, for thinking he’d have sense enough to mind his own business.
