Another Great Moment in Republican Party History

Earl Butz, Secretary of Agriculture under President Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

The only thing the coloreds are looking for in life are tight pussy, loose shoes, and a warm place to shit. -October 1976.
  • In response to a question by Pat Boone as to why Republicans were unable to attract more blacks to their party.
Prior to this, Butz had told an off-color joke involving intercourse between a dog and a skunk.

Earl Butz. A classic. He's slightly less famous for changing US agriculture so that we ended up with a corn glut. Hence, high fructose corn syrup, an obesity epidemic and diabetes out of control.

Whatta guy.

Lord, I had forgotten about Earl Butz. Mostly because G. Gordon Liddy is still mouthing off. No wonder many of us who grew up during the Nixon years still have trouble with Reality.

Yep, the Nixon bunch, what slimeballs! And it would seem the legacy still lives into the 21st Cengtury.
