Suck on this, Dick

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 3:43 PM

Pat Lycnh posts a video clip of Dick "Toesucker" Morris during a teabagger rally at a Little Rock pizza joint yesterday. For-hire by the Koch billionaire operation, Morris, the prostitute's pal, will stoop to anything in his political whoring. Here you'll hear him call Sen. Blanche Lincoln and Joyce Elliott, the congressional candidate, "girls who just can't say no." It's demeaning stuff even if metaphorical. He also mispronounces the name of the candidate he's pandering for, John BOOZE-man.

The Tea Party would do well, as the NAACP has suggested, to repudiate the racists (and sexists) among its followers. Republican candidates of integrity would do the same. The baggers cheered Morris lustily last night. I won't hold my breath for Boozer or Tim Griffin to take the high road, either.

UPDATE: Tim Griffin, who's enthusiasticallly joined 'bagger rallies, says Morris' comment was "inappropriate." Good for him.

RELATED: Talking Points Memo rounds up national Republicans with little good to say about the Tea Party. They include Lindsey Graham, nobody's liberal, who thinks the group lacks coherent vision. That would be one definite lack.
