    "Boy"

    One word that says more about you than anything.

    Of course, change the subject. Have you and Vitalogy been bumping pee-pees or something?

    I wonder if your guys who always associate the word "boy" with blacks are closet racists?

    Sounds like something from your fantasies.

    The blogger digby called it back in 2007:

    As critical as it is to [conservatives] to feminize Democratic and liberal males (and to masculinize the women), even more important is to create false images of masculine power and strength around their authority figures. The reality of this masculine power is almost always non-existent. The imagery is what counts.

    This works exactly the same as the images of moral purity that they work so hard to manufacture, whereby the leaders they embrace — such as Gingrich, Limbaugh, Bill Bennett, even the divorced and estranged-from-his-children Ronald Reagan and Coulter herself — are plauged by the most morally depraved and reckless personal lives, yet still parade around as the heroes of the “Values Voters.” Just as what matters is that their leaders prance around as moral leaders (even while deviating as far as they want from those standards), what matters to them also is that their leaders play-act as strong and masculine figures, even when there is no basis, no reality, to the play-acting.

    And whether Deane meant it or not, the use of terms like "boy" when applied to the President helps to maintain that image of authority and power. "He may be the President, but he's morally, physically, sexually and racially inferior, so I don't have to abide by his authority."

    Funny how much the GOP backs Putin. You'd think he's Deane's hero.

    Why is it that Deane always brings up pee pees? Is it another one of those GOP gay fantasy things?
