John Sununu’s Pot and Kettle Moment

Seems there’s yet another euphemism for the word “black” in American English: unAmerican. Because that’s really what Republicans mean when they say that about our current President.

So, here’s what Romney surrogate and attack dog, John Sununu, had to say earlier whilst in conversation with one of the ubiquitous Fox News resident blonde talking heads:-



Hold the moment right at 1:38, when Sununu unleashes this priceless gem:-

He has no idea how the American system functions, and we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago.

This isn’t just the rant of an angry old white man voicing the thoughts of every other angry old white man in America, this happens to be John Sununu, former Bush 41 Chief of Staff and a former governor of New Hampshire.

What’s rich about this unguarded and totally hypocritical moment is that John Sununu himself was born in Cuba, and spent the bulk of his childhood and youth in El Salvador. His mother was Cuban, and his father, John Saleh Sununu, was of Lebanese and Palestinian (as in Middle East) descent, with a smidgeon of Greek thrown in for good measure.

When Sununu’s talking about our President’s background, which he views as unAmerican, maybe he wants to take a look at his own. Saleh is certainly as foreign as Hussein, after all.

Pot + kettle = unAmerican. 

Socialize this!
