#RLC2014 N’Awlins, Y’all

After a busy first day at the Republican Leadership Conference, we headed to Daisy Dukes on Chartres Street for a midnight breakfast. Yesterday, Sarah Palin was a surprise speaker here at the Republican Leadership Conference, introducing Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, who made news:

In a speech he delivered Thursday, Robertson did just that, telling the GOP to “get Godly” and decrying some of the White House’s recent actions as “downright embarrassing.”
At the heart of Robertson’s message — a half-hour speech that was delivered at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana — was the notion that Republicans need to get back on track by reconnecting with the Lord.
“GOP, you can’t be right for America if you’re wrong with God,” Robertson told the crowd, according to the Washington Post’s Post Politics blog. “You want to turn the Republican Party around? Get Godly.”
He later quipped, “I guess the GOP may be more desperate than I thought to call somebody like me.”
As for President Barack Obama, Robertson said some of the things coming from the White House are “downright embarrassing,” the New Orleans Advocate reported.
“We’re up against evil like I’ve never seen in my life. I’m sitting there and I’m thinking, ‘What’s coming out of the White House?,’” he said. “The only thing I can tell you folks is it’s just downright embarrassing.”
Robertson also spoke out against racism, noting that one’s skin color has nothing to do with a person’s character.
“There’s one race on this planet, and it’s called the human race,” Robertson added. “Therefore you have no right to color-code anyone. We’re all the same family.”

Today: Haley Barbour, Donald Trump, Allen West, Mike Lee and Newt Gingrich.

    No, I’d say that based on what you’ve tried before, you’ll wait until you think you can take another cheap shot and then squirm and try to distract attention when someone calls you on it.

    But it’s not really “race” it’s “gene pool.” Genes are far cooler than the old crutch of race can possibly cover.

    But we’ll have to pick this argument up when we can joust over whiskies at a liberal bar sometime. Just to make their heads explode.

    You get last word.

    That’s fine. There are things that I like talking about around libtards just for the reaction that’s in it. It can be fun. Lottsa fun!
