"Wisconsin state Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) slammed Kwanzaa, characterizing it as a “supposed” holiday and saying, “Almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa — just white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people’s throats in an effort to divide Americans.”
“Why must we still hear about Kwanzaa?” Grothman asked, according to Patch. “Why are hard-core left wingers still trying to talk about Kwanzaa?”' [Source]
The man is a liar. I know lots of "white left-wingers" and not one of them celebrates, or, for that matter, cares much for Kwanzaa. Just sayin.
Finally, I guess that republicans found a way to get their revenge on Governor Krispy Kreme.
"New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie unloaded on House Republicans and their leader, John Boehner, Wednesday afternoon, calling the group "disgusting" after the group delayed a vote on much-needed Hurricane Sandy disaster aid.
"This is not a Republican or Democratic issue. National disasters happen in red states and blue states – in states with Democratic governors and Republican governors," Christie said.
"We respond to innocent victims of natural disasters not as Republicans or Democrats but as Americans. Or at least we did, until last night."'
Apparently this was a political move by Mr. Tan Man and he yanked the emergency aid bill to get back at Eric Cantor for breaking from him on the fiscal cliff talks. Oh what a tangled web....
Anyway, I suspect that republicans don't care much for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Those poor folks all live in blue states.
