The Party of Lincoln FAIL

Did I heah you right, son? Ah say -- ah say -- did you really stand up in the Missouri legislature and say, “What we are dealing with today is the greatest power grab by the federal government since the war of northern aggression”?

State Rep. Bryan Stevenson, Republican (duh) -- pictured left -- actually said that in session. For those of you who don't know, "The War of Northern Aggression" is what racist redneck Southerners call the American Civil War.

Ah do -- ah say -- ah do believe it's time to inform the GOP that they can no longer call themselves the Party of the Great Emancipator.

And now, some Bugs Bunny (there is an incredibly racist stereotypical bit about 2:45 in, but... warts and all, you know?):
