1) "Don't worry about those white strangers. They won't stay long."

Now we have another contender for the worst...prediction...ever. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Kiowa science-fiction writer Russell Bates proclaimed a certain outcome over and over:
It is not being racist to say that, if Sen. Barack Obama becomes the Democratic nominee for President in the 2008 national elections, the majority of Americans in the 'dominant society' will elect the likely Republican candidate, John McCain. No ifs, ands, or buts. ... You have been warned... (February 10, 2008)
[I]f Barack HUSSEIN Obama becomes the Democratic nominee for President of the United States, the 'cultural majority' will vote for and then elect Republican John McCain as their next President. Period. There is no other outcome. (February 27, 2008)
If Obama becomes the Democratic nominee, John McCain will win the next Presidency in a landslide, and eight more years of bad road will the the next Trail Of Tears... (March 14, 2008)
White America (read: any white over 30) will NOT elect a Black man President of the US of A because it is too early for such a matter. Maybe in 2020, but not now. John McCain has been handed the Presidency by any and all of those who ushered Barack HUSSEIN Obama into the Democratic Presidential nomination in 2008. ... writerfella is a futurist, and what he sees as YOUR future now has become all but ineluctable... (June 6, 2008)
John McCain as president will add a third front: Iran. The universal conscription draft will see a revival, and the world oil price will hit $200+ a barrel... (July 2, 2008)
Not only did Russ make these predictions, he staked his credibility on them. "No ifs, ands, or buts," he said. He's a "futurist" so he know what will happen. He "warned" us because he's smarter than the rest of us. He "guaranteed" the outcome. Etc.
How stupidly wrong can you get? As stupidly wrong as it's possible to be, if you're Russell Bates.
Biting the Indian apple
If you haven't followed Russ's comments on Newspaper Rock, you may wonder whether he's a racist or just an ignoramus. The answer is a bit of both.
Most pundits thought Obama was an ideal choice to be the first major-party black candidate. Harvard-educated, calm and rational, poised and articulate, a post-racial candidate who refused to play the victim card. But not Russ. In Why Indians Are Democrats Russ made it clear he'd never vote for a black person. Blacks have a pro-black, anti-Indian agenda that would help only themselves.
Russ's apparent loathing of blacks was matched only by his apparent self-loathing. In posting after posting, he demonstrated he was an Indian apple: a sellout who would support a Hollywood studio, a university, or a magazine if it stereotyped Indians. In No Natives for President? he implied that a Native could never be elected president. He simply couldn't conceive of anyone but a Caucasian holding the office.
Message to Russ
You proved to be about as a good a "futurist" as an 8-ball, Russ. A blindfolded chimpanzee throwing his feces against a wall could've done a better job of predicting the next president. I hope your "futurist" science fiction is better than your "futurist" politics, because your political insight is worse than monkey shit.
Next time your little pea-brain has a political thought, check with me first. I'll let you know if your nursery school-level of analysis ("white man good, black man bad") is valid. As you just proved, you couldn't be more ignorant of racial politics if you tried.
In short, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the 44th president of the United States. And you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Better luck in 2012, loser.
P.S. I suspect Russ has disappeared from this blog because he knew how badly he'd be embarrassed on November 4, 2008. If I had been this stupidly wrong, I'd be ashamed to show my face too.

There is always a mulitude of frauds out there who are greedily seeking the fat life by any means at their disposal, just as there are always more than enough dumb asses who take their bait without even sniffing at it.
Thanks for exposing yet another waste of a sperm and an egg trapped in a continuous holding pattern at the periphery (the "rim" rather) of NA society.
I'll alert the scabrous wino who lives in the dumpster behind my pad to be on the lookout for this kkklown.
"P.S. I suspect Russ has disappeared from this blog because he knew how badly he'd be embarrassed on November 4, 2008."
I remember you predicting this. An accurate prediction.
"My Space" to Comment:
I predict that Sarah Palin will not seek higher political aspirations other than Supervisory Animal Control Officer in the town of Wasilla, Alaska after her term as governor expires.
DUMB AND DUMBER:
Who vetted Palin? Curley of the Three Stooges is my best guess.
Palin simply represents the hordes of personal hygiene-challenged, uneducated, illiterate (culturally and otherwise), self-proclaimed All-American patriots who are just as dumb, if not dumber than she is. And she is about as "hot" as the legions of beat-up, old, ex-hippie-turned-GOP hootchie mommas out for one last hurrah (the kind who always deeply worship, sight-unseen, their online johns).
What? Since when do blacks and Native Americans not get along?? Man, I always get left out of the loop!
And here I thought that the two most disenfranchised minority groups in America might possibly just be happy together that Barack Obama is our new President Elect. I'm certainly happy, and I didn't let his being black AND WHITE get in the way of my voting for him. I voted for him early.
I'll admit I was nervous about the potential for a McCain-Palin presidency, but this is more because of my deeply rooted trust issues. And because I don't repeat dumbassed predictions 1-4.
I agree with you about Palin, Melvin. But I think she'll run for higher office--probably senator--in the near future. Maybe she'll have learned what Africa is by then.
