Why Cant Negroes Understand How Awesome the GOP Is?

You right, Rush. Negroes should totally learn how awesome the party that seems to keep insulting us is. So what if you speak to us in a condescending, patronizing, uber-arrogant tone, WE NEED TO LEARN HOW AWESOME YOU ARE FOR US!

Today on #TWiBRadio, I’m left alone to my own devices with the rest of the team off receiving government handouts (i.e. taking a German exam and finalizing a dissertation) I opened up the phone lines and we discussed the Republican outreach plan, the ridiculousness of its execution and what could actually work.

And this morning on #amTWiB:

Looks like Anthony Weiner is considering a comeback. Turns out it was all about easy access:

You know, [Twitter is] like spin the wheel! Find someone to say something to you! And if it wasn’t 2011 and it didn’t exist, it’s not like I would have gone out cruising bars or something like that. It was just something that technology made possible and it became possible for me to do stupid things. I mean, the thing I did, and the damage that I did, not only hadn’t it been done before, but it wasn’t possible to do it before.

DAMN YOU TWITTER FOR EXISTING!!!

Then L.Joy and the crew discuss the treacherous chicks manipulating parents, Ben Carson backed out of Johns Hopkins convocation, and what you should know about Obama’s budget proposal.

Accidental Rand Paul

accidental rand paul twib

Rand Paul has never wavered on Civil Rights:

Except that one time:

That’s not, like, really wavering, right? That’s just sort of wavering.
Maybe we should let the free market decide.

Today on #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness obviously Rand Paul explaining how voting works to a group of students at an historically black college isn’t accidentally racist or anything, historian superhero Dr. Blair Kelley calls in on the black phone, and since when is saying ‘nigger rigging’ ever okay?

Tucker Carlson, Glenn Beck, and a Rejected White Girl Walk into a Bar

Today on #TWiBRadio, we watch the editor of Conservative Black Chick, Crystal Wright and Tucker Carlson completely miss the ever-loving point.

And then Glenn Beck and company do not hear the same things we hear:

So Melissa Harris-Perry wants to steal your children if they don’t drown at the hands of incompetent Negroes who just stole your spot at Yale.

I mean, that’s reasonable.

And this morning on #amTWiB, L.Joy and company discuss the Trayvon Martin settlement, cancer mortality rates in Black women, and making poor kids throw out their school lunches.

How NOT to be a Pundit

I don’t even know what’s happening. Seriously, what just happened?

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we learn some gossip about Sean Hannity, Awkward Dacia is Awkward, and we discuss regional bias and humor in listener feedback.

Instilling Fear in Black and Latino Youth

During testimony Monday in the case against NYPD’s stop-and-frisk policy, State Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) recounted comments made by Police Commissioner Ray Kelly:

Kelly said that officers focused on that group of people “because he wanted to instill fear in them that every time they left home they could be targeted by police.”

That’s right …

Instill.
Fear.

Also on today’s #TWiBRadio, we explored what we could possibly learn from Fox and Friends (spoiler: it’s nothing), conservatives tweeting the paper bag test, perhaps there’s a relationship between obvious studies and commonly held beliefs of extremely stupid people.

And this morning on #amTWiB, #TheMorningCrew discussed electrified underwear and bad puns, favorite muppets, and how we got screwed out of a 30 hour work week.

Everyone Must Have a Gun, Unless You Don’t Want One

Alan Keyes is criminalizing the LGBTQ community again:

Then you’re not only derelict in your public duty, you’re abandoning your obligation as a human being. And frankly, … I think that kind of disregard for the God-endowed natural rights of human beings is the archetype of all crimes against humanity.

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discussed the Georgia town that requires gun ownership, homosexuals swimming with sharks and other crimes against humanity, and there’s a dolphin serial killer on the loose.

And this morning on #amTWiB, #TheMorningCrew discussed how real men buy tampons, GZA dropping science, and the thigh gap.

The Icky Amendment

On today’s #TWiBRadio, Rick Ross wants women to know that they misunderstood him. He didn’t mean rape, he just meant drugging a woman and having sex with her without her consent. Which is rape.

Then we’re joined by Olivia St. Clair, resident TWiB ‘Ratchet-Ass’ lawyer who bent our brains into logic pretzels while explaining the legal rationale behind DOMA, Prop 8, and the potential outcome of the SCOTUS decisions.

And this morning on #amTWiB, #TheMorningCrew discussed saying vagina in the classroom, how NOT to respond to your constituents, and L.Joy hits her grandma stride again.

So Apparently Raping is Really Cool Now, huh.

Seriously, we’re just describing rape now.

On today’s #TWiBRadio, we discussed America’s pervasive rape culture, the indefensibility of the defensive anti-gay marriage stance, and I’ve got ideas for another new project.
