Like the idea of an ignorant, racist Republican is shocking in any way. And also, for a racist-ish comment of my own: could this guy be an uglier, chubbier rich-white-guy? Damn.
In a comment on his Facebook page [you're too old for facebook, asshole] South Carolina GOP activist and former chairman of the state elections commission Rusty DePass made the following comment about a gorilla that had escaped from a local zoo: "I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors - probably harmless."
He’s admitted he was referring to Michelle Obama, saying, "I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest."
Offended anyone? "In jest"? Dude - WTF is your deal? Of course that’s offensive - what kind of idiot could even pretend to suggest he didn’t realize how people would take that kind of comment?
You’re a racist, and an asshole - and I hope the next time we hear about you it’s because someone’s smacked the bigot out of you [I'm available for said bigot-smacking all week - hit me on my cell].
Does anyone know how the GOP reacted to this? I don’t suppose the party as a whole had the sense to denounce his comments.
Seriously - if you can’t help but say ignorant things about the skin-tone of the first family: at least have the cajones to stand by your comments. People will still hate you for saying it, and you’ll look like an antiquated clown - but at least you won’t come off as a p@$$y.
Also, please, PLEASE, don’t go arguing some nonsense about evolution - we all know what the deal is when some white guy starts comparing gorillas to African Americans. I’ve already read some comments on other sites by some fool Repubs who are claiming this is a creationism vs evolution thing - which is complete and utter BS.

Who else would go to Iraq to perform for the troops and never break character [at least on camera]? He even went so far as to declare ‘victory’ - based on the fact that the media in the US no longer discuss the war, so we must have won. But the sitting President ordering that a general cut your hair? That’s feckin’ hilarious…

Really tho - look at this woman’s expression! She looks like a giddy teenager who just got to meet her favorite Backstreet Boy or something…
Get it together, Angela!

It doesn’t really seem as if these ninjas here need any help promoting their gear [note the Donny Wahlberg plug in the video below], but one of the company’s founders was like fam to me back in the day - and I’m always looking to support Beantown-based projects. Plus, their mission statement sounds like something you’d hear from MNP:
We’re not just a company…we’re a movement.
We pride ourselves on being part of a new generation of young adults who are natural-born legal-hustlers.
And when a person wakes up first and hits the ground running while the rest are fast asleep, they will always ‘Eat first," hence the name Breakfast Club. We make clothing for young, fly people who sit at the table of life and enjoy the fruits of their labor.
Anyone who can determine their goal, take the steps to make it happen, and follow through with ambition and tenacity is worthy of wearing our brand.
Our clothing designs and colors are driven by ambition and new ideas and not just by what everyone else is doing.
Success comes in many shapes and forms. As for us -AA we don’t care in what shape or form it comes in, as long as when it comes it’s wearing our logo.
Breakfast Club Culture Brand…clothing for those who rise & grind!
To be honest I can’t get 100% behind the concept, but that’s only because the idea of ‘waking up first’ to ‘eat first’ seems ludicrous to me. I mean, I can’t speak for all the ninjas here at MNP - but I myself haven’t slept in over 4,000 years. Keep one eye tilted.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2603896047832015023
BTW - Donny has [hilariously] remained this kind of Boston townie hood, which is killin’ me. He’s just hangin’ tough, I suppose…
Sad ninja news to report today - actor and 9th dan ninja master David Carradine has been found dead in a hotel in Bangkok. There are apparently no details, and the death is still being investigated.
I suspect Pai Mei’s Five-Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique, as it’s the only thing gangster enough to take out a true ninja like Carradine.
Rest in peace Sir.
MANILA, Philippines a€" Alec Baldwin’s joke about getting a Filipino mail-order bride provoked a sharp response in the Philippines, with one senator saying Monday that the "30 Rock" star faces violence if he ever visits.
Baldwin, 51, who is divorced with a teenage daughter, said in a May 12 interview on "The Late Show" with David Letterman that he would love to have more children.
The Emmy-winning actor quipped that he was "thinking about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point … or a Russian one."

I guess he’s gonna have to bring Jayne with him for protection (for all you Firefly fans).
I mean, does the screenshot not tell you enough already? Finally, some responsible person has come to the forefront with enough courage to make a site dedicated to the worst, most non-ninja-worthy mofos in the world.AA Oh wait we’re talking about HuffPo here…
The catalogue, to date, is a little slim, but, by no means inaccurate.AA I don’t agree with all the picks, but it’s a hell of a read.
This is probably the best concept for a site since MNP.AA It’s interesting how all the best things in life combine synchronistically, eh, whatwith the Lake-show in the playoffs?AA I’m thinking about adding Jay Leno and Sasha Vujachic.AA And, for all you basketball fans out there, guess what color yellow and blue make when combined?

[ update: I must add that barstoolsports has the best reportage on this matterAA -ed. ]
I’m assuming many of you have seen these commercials - this is pretty ridiculous. Good luck selling towels from here on out…
Shlomi told cops he paid [Sasha] Harris about $1000 in cash after she "propositioned him for straight sex." Shlomi said that when he kissed Harris, she suddenly "bit his tongue and would not let go." Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue. The affidavit…notes that during the 4 AM fight Harris sustained facial fractures and lacerations all over her face…. After freeing his tongue, a bleeding Shlomi ran to the [hotel] lobby, where security summoned cops. Harris refused to cooperate with officers, who recovered $930 from her purse.
