Joker of the Week Winners










Congrats to Kwame Kilpatrick who narrowily edged out Baha Men lovin' Mitt Romney and suspect Bill Clinton to win Joker of the Week last week and thanks to all of you who voted.


And just when I was starting to compile this week's list of contenders, I ran across a video of Kilpatrick's mother, Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, defending her son's honor telling people "don't let them talk about ya'll's boy." And then she said people fought too hard for this. (insert blank stare). Why thank you Congresswoman. Way to skirt the issue and make this a race matter and not about your son committing perjury, sleeping around and letting down his constituents and those who believed in him. Seeing her put everything into perspective for me...

So I'm going to do something we rarely do at CITC and award this week's Joker prize to the Mother/Son team of Carolyn and Kwame. They earned it!

One amendment - 50 Cent would have been nominated this week after remarking that he was voting for Hillary Clinton, in part because America is not ready for a black president, and they would probably kill him. Shrewd.

i can't believe these are elected officials.... who's voting for these village idiots? such ignorance. 50 can't help it. he wears a bullet-proof vest 24-7. what do you expect from him? intellectual stimulating conversation? a smart remark? highly doubt it.

TravelDiva said...

LMAO. You did not say village idiots! Stop it!

I would rather 50 just keep his mouth closed. But now I'm left in agreement with Bill O'Reilly. What is the world coming to?

But you know what, 50 is echoing the sentiments of ALOT of people. I've heard the same thing from folks, both young and old. With comparisons to both MLK and JFK, it doesn't surprise me in the least.

I, however, have faith and have the audacity to hope!

Barack to the future!

Kwame Kilpervert- It kills me! A mother will stand behind her son no matter what! "My son hit you with his car? Well YOU shouldn't have been standing there scaring him like that!"

50 Cent- I'd LOVE to think our country has moved forward enough to where Barack could worry about real issues, but given the reappearance of some major racial scariness in the south I could be nervous for him.

I've heard the fear of an assassination argument from folks I know--but that's not going to stop me from voting. I mean, should I let extreme racists win and dictate who I vote for? Not me.

Shaking my head at Kwame and 50 Cent...

Damn them jokers!

F.U. said...

Yeah, I'm gonna say KK most certainly deserves to be the Joker of the Week...I also find it real funny that while Christine Beaty resigned (and since she didn't just wait for them to fire her she got no severance), lost her husband, and now has no job and prolly no money, KK is chillin with his wife, his job and of course...he always got his mama.

And 50 needs to be kicked in his brand new fake teeth.

TravelDiva said...

LMBAO at F.U.!

Putting it in those terms with respect to KK vs. his mistress - Ramn!

So her husband left her? I bet no one said, Oh, why didn't you stick by your wife?....

if we get a black president then white people can always say that there is no discrimination

i'm not ready to give them that satisfaction

TILshopgirl said...

To James - Funny comment but really a black man as president does not remove the KKK from existence or any other racist organizations. In addition, we can say that in time Obama was running, there's been an increase of hate crimes and acts and there will probably be more.

To 50 and the people who think america's not ready, then make america ready. To echo Michelle Obama, you can't live your life in fear of what others will do or in fear that others will not be ready for change.

point taken tillshop

i just have a chronic fear of black politicians

the more black elected officials we've got the more we've went to jail, more illegal arrests, more police curruption and violence towards the citizens

i'm sure you can't blame all of this on the politicians but man it's hard for blacks once they are in there
