Why Is It That Liberals Know All The Good Obscure Slang?

With Donnie Douche* calling Marco Rubio a 'Coconut'?

If you are in need of some knowledge like I was about the term, Michelle Malkin has the rundown.

Quick primer for those of you unfamiliar with the “coconut” insult:

If you are a conservative with Latino/Pacific Islander/Filipino heritage, you’re a coconut (brown on the outside, white on the inside).

If you are a conservative with Asian heritage, you’re a Twinkie or banana (yellow on the outside, white on the inside).

And if you are a conservative who happens to be black, you are an Oreo (black on the outside, white on the inside).

Okay, who is getting hungry?
I need to add one more. I spent a few years doing work out on the Navajo and Hopi Indian Reservations a decade or so ago. Apple is another term. Red on the outside, white on the inside.

Back to the guy with the German sounding name who denigrated minorities.

Maybe Donnie Douche is endorsing Charlie Crist because they go to the same tanning salon? Who knows?

One thing, Donnie Douche with his gelled and sculpted coiffure does look kind of creepy. He looks straight out of central casting to be the kind of dad who will encourage his daughter – when she’s a teenager -- to invite her friends over for a sleepover.  Then take pictures of them while they are bouncing on a trampoline.

Or the kind of guy who will get his girlfriend pregnant then dump her. Oh, wait. That he did do.

*Yes, I know his name really is Donnie Deutsch and that calling him Douche is akin to grabbing at fruit so low hanging, it may as well be on the ground. But after stooping a married woman as well as dumping his pregnant girlfriend, he's earned it. Easily.

  1. O/T sort of....

    My step-grandfather was a Hopi Indian. I visited the reservation several times throughout my childhood and teenage years. The mesa village houses were so pitiful then with outhouses hanging off the cliffs and big tanks laying around that were printed with Gift from the American Government.

    BUT, the people were full of character and watching ceremonies from the rooftops on the mesas will be burned in my memory forever...along with the reminder of the eye burning sensation of peppers roasting and the food poisoning I had after one visit that lasted two days! Ha!

    I'd like to hear your experiences there.

    BTW, nice name breakdowns. I feel more informed of the libs' slang now. Ha!

  2. I was living in Flagstaff at the time. Installing satellite dish systems.

    Lots of beautiful areas up there. Beyond Tuba City and Kayenta areas too. Near the four corners of the state.

    I'm in the Richmond VA area now. Still miss Arizona from time to time.

  3. Oh, yeah, I bet satellite systems were a big hit in all that open area! Ha!

    I'm in NC. I loved the dry heat there vs. our southern humidity.

    And yes, very beautiful...even the tumbleweeds. :))

    Thanks for sharing.
