I Got Nuffin

So, enjoy some moronic conversations.

Overheard At The Nail Salon:
Redneck Girl: Who are you voting for?
Redneck Girl 2: McCain. That other guy is... *whispers* BLACK.
RG: He's not even black. He's Arab! Did you know his middle name is Hussein; as in Saddam Hussein?
RG 2: Also, I hear he's being funded by those people who destroyed our twin towers.
RG: It's a conspiracy. I'm not letting them get control of our government.
RG 2: That's right!
RG: I'm going to go vote for McCain tomorrow... as soon as I register.

Overheard At The Nail Salon 2:
Asian Nail Technician: You still dating dat guy?
Redneck Girl: Which one?
Asian Nail Technician: Wit da baby?
Redneck Girl: Shit-no. Turns out he got another girl pregnant. Then he made her get an abortion.
Asian Nail Technician: Oh.
Redneck Girl: Like I told him, I just can't be with someone who believes in abortion!

damn rednecks ;-)

That first set of rednecks are way behind. They've given up on the "Obama is a Muslim" thing and are now on "Obama is a socialist/communist/marxist" theme. I hate it when rednecks can't keep up with the current slime!

Oh dear - those are REAL overheard conversations?

The only thing that I can find that is good about those two conversations is the smugness they give me. At least I'm not as stupid as they are.

You either have to stop hanging out at that nail salon, or start recording these conversations so you can post the videos here.

I agree with j having videos of those conversations would be hilarious. I can't believe how stupid people are. But on the other hand thank you for the afternoon laugh.

Oh they're real... Not to mention really scary. The first redneck looked about 27, although she indicated she was only 21. We call her type "rode hard". The other redneck was about 18. I stayed 15 minutes later than I had to just to hear the end of conversation 1. Then I laughed all the way out of the place. I'd love to be there when she tries to register to vote for THIS election. Do you think she'll try to do it at the polling place?

Oh, and about conversation 2, how low are her standards?! Ugh. If I could have gotten away with videoing the exchange, I would have. But remember, my hands were kind of occupied. Someone should donate me a mini-cam in a ball cap. :D

Holy crap, I can't believe those conversations are real. You're scaring me, tink. Is this a Halloween thing?

I suggested to my wife that we go as McCain and Palin for Halloween. She stared at me like I was crazy. But it makes sense--we can almost see Mexico from our house.

Those two conversations made me uncomfortable and ashamed :)

I hate stuff like that, where do these people come from?

Anyways, it takes all kinds I suppose.

You need to install a video to see what weird conversations happen when you aren't there. Just think what you could be missing out on! Wait, you can't vote at 18? Oh and we can register at the polling station too.

I often wonder if the silent Redneck Racist is going to play a part in this election. It's sad that it might at all, but I've wondered this since hearing something totally unrelated on Mark Cuban's blog. I was even surprised it's a big topic in the African-American world that there is a suspicion he will be assassinated.

This morning on the radio i heard a reporter tell about a woman who thinks if Obama is elected, white people will be enslaved.

How do these people manage to be so stupid and still live??

 
At 30 October, 2008, Blogger Gordo said...

Oh, that's not nuffin, Tink. That's definitely sumpin. ;-)

I guess the really scary question is whether or not folks can truly push the button for the black man when they get into the voting booth or not. It's very different from talking to some pollster on the phone.

Oh.

My.

GAWD.

You've been boo'ed!! Come to blog to see what the heck I am talking about. :)

This election has brought all of the stupid people out of the closet and into broad daylight... I think we should take the opportunity to either brand them or sterilize them while they're out in the open. Maybe just tag them for research like they do with wild animals? A tag in the ear maybe? Sheesh.

Lovely. The idiots are massing.

 
At 30 October, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

tells you something about the candidate that is not only feeding them this shit, but wanting their vote...

 
At 30 October, 2008, Blogger Pamer said...

oh you got sumfin' darling...and that sumfin'is good!!!

Both of those conversations could definitely be overheard in my city...FO SHO! Rednecks are everywhere since they reproduce so indicriminately.

There was a poll conducted in TX (& reported by Hardball) that 23% of Texans still believe Obama is a Muslim.

And I live here. It makes my head hurt sometimes. But, I promise, I am part of the 77%!

While we're on the subject of rednecks.

 
At 31 October, 2008, Blogger Catutes said...

Yikes.
The only comforting thought I can take from this is these are people usually too apathetic to go out and vote. The thought that this redneck population might actually choose our next president frightens me silly.

I was so very much hoping that those were actually jokes you had heard. Bad jokes, but still...jokes. Instead, I feel like someone just hit me in the stomach.

Stupid is as Stupid does.

It's scary that McCain might just have a chance to win...thanks to all the rednecks.

 
At 31 October, 2008, OpenID freakazojd said...

Oh my god...seriously?! While it IS kind of funny, really, it's more scary and disheartening than anything else. Wow.

Maybe someone should have suggested these ladies at the nail salon save their manicure money and invest in a book. *sigh*

For a minute there I thought you were quoting the blogger...yer not, right? I think the McCain bit was scarier than your Hallowe'en video!

Should I laugh or cry?

I think I'll cry.

At least they are sort of self-selecting. By being so stupid she thinks that registering to vote is kind of like using a coupon at Applebee's....
