    Not only is it racist but how incredibly disrespectful to our President's mother! Just off the charts. A President, let alone his family, has never been treated this way in the past - that I'm aware of. It's insane.

    This is how many Republicans, Teabaggers and Conservatives think. It's refreshing to see undeniable evidence of it.

    Unfortunately, unless this Federal judge resigns, he's got a job for life. He can only be impeached by the House, which is currently run by Republicans, and there aren't enough Democrats in the Senate to convict and remove him (takes 60 votes). The Republicans would never part with such a like-minded gem as this guy.

    What was sent:

    "“A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’” the email joke reads. “His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’”

    Why? Some of you guys are just beyond petty. The guy received an emailed joke that was, admittedly, in poor taste --- have we not all received them? --- and forwarded it to 6 of his friends --- Have we not all done the same? Doesn't make him a racist. He didn't actually state he thinks this way, he was merely forwarding a distasteful email that some, I guess, would find funny. I certainly don't, but I have no doubt others would. The article the OP linked to, written by Ian Millhiser, is ridiculously biased, making a mountain out of a molehill. The judge admitted that he doesn't care for Obama. The judge is entitled to his opinion. I am sure every judge across the country has a varied opinion of the President. Those judges who don't care for Obama does not mean they are racist....though writers like Ian Millhiser would surely attempt to paint them that way/

    The guy FORWARDED the email that was sent to him -- big deal! What a total misrepresentation. Some times people forward emails to others because of how outrageous they are.

    Furthermore, there was no reference to bestiality. The barking part of the joke was to emphasize that she doesn't remember what happened the night of the supposed "party".

    Was it a joke in very poor and bad taste? Yes. Did the judge actually endorse it or say it was good? No.

    Only the idiots who take the OP title at face value will be outraged.

    Well, actually yes, he pretty much endorsed it.

    Here was my favorite part:

    Great Falls TribuneThe subject line of the email, which Cebull sent from his official courthouse email address on Feb. 20 at 3:42 p.m., reads: "A MOM'S MEMORY."

    The forwarded text reads as follow:

    "Normally I don't send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine."


    bwahahahahahahaha!

    Even by his standards. What kind of "friends" does he have? Nevermind the kind that mindlessly hits the forward button. Who are all these "friends" whose "hearts" he "touched" with that?

    Even Dubya wouldn't Heckuva-Job-Brownie this guy. He needs a new profession stat. Just, please, no judge TV shows and no comedy clubs!

    Ummm...no Mock. The boy's mother replied that whatever went down at the party, the boy was lucky HE didn't bark (an inferral he was part dog and that she may have had sex with a dog)

    As for the judge endorsing it: ""Normally I don't send or forward a lot of these, but even by my standards, it was a bit touching. I want all of my friends to feel what I felt when I read this. Hope it touches your heart like it did mine."

    No, it means that probably so much crazy shit "happened" that she's surprised he doesn't bark, since she couldn't remember much. It could have been quack or meow or moo. Saying that the joke is saying interracial marriage is like bestiality seems like a stretch to me.

    I can't find that actual commentary anywhere on the page but it sounds sarcastic to me. Definitely not genuine. An email like that doesn't actually "touch" someone's heart.

    Anyway, the judge never wrote the email so what's the big deal.

    Also, it should be noted that he forwarded this to friends...not like he repeated the joke in open court. The libs will grasp at any morsel they can these days. LOL!

    lol, he's a judge and so a public figure, Mock.



    Now seeing as how you're determined to be avoidant (which makes you look charmingly dense) with the obvious, why would the little boy be quaking or mooing or barking as a result of the implied sexual escapades that Barack's Mom indulged in at the party?

    And yet the morsels just keep on coming. Stop it, I'm full already! LOL

    Hey, the judge just wanted a few chuckles. And now he's got some! Sure, they're directed at him now, but hey...

    Now this is a little exercise for Mock, seeing as how he's mixed race like myself :

    A little boy said to his mother; ‘Mommy, how come I’m hispanic and you’re white? His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Mocktwinkie! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’

    EVERYONE privately enjoys something offensive with a small circle of friends. Are the libs here going to tell me they haven't enjoyed offensive emails about Bush? Or other political figures they can't stand?

    I honestly wouldn't care that much. You're only as offended as you let yourself be.

    And btw, what do you consider "mixed race" exactly?

    Not while a sitting Federal judge using a public computer paid with the taxpayer's half-penny, nope! Haven't had that experience yet! We should all be so lucky!

    Mock is a troll - his arguments never make sense, he never answers questions, he continually avoids the obvious - it's all very deliberate. No one could be that dense. And have you ever noticed him on a health or fitness thread? I haven't, odd for a health/fitness forum. Just ignore/block him. I've been a happier man since doing it and it gives him less fuel to keep going on RJ.

    Finally, the light dawns. You understand the joke.

    However, 'you're only offended as you let yourself be' is too-easy deflection-speak. icon_wink.gif

    Did I say the joke wasn't derogatory? Of course the joke is offensive. We're talking about how great the judge's offense is passing it along to a handful of friends.

    You're just bitter because you lost the last exchange we had where you tried desperately to make 1 of 2 equal actions more "wrong" than the other based purely on the race of the perpetrators.

    Oh, and, you obviously don't visit the health or fitness section!

    Good, Mock,
    now tell me WHY the joke was derogatory and offensive.
