Cleaver Seeks Legislative Assistant/Counsel

March 5th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

We found this advertisement today for Rep. Cleaver. Cleaver is apparently looking for a little office help in Washington. It’s your standard description for a Capitol Hill position; drafting statements, meeting deadlines etc. With Cleaver proving his undaunted loyalty to Senator Clinton recently, we have a few suggestions he should add to that job description.

One, the prospective candidate should live near a drugstore so they can buy plenty of Preparation H on the way to work. Taking one day after day for Hillary should be starting to get pretty painful for the Congressman. Throat lozenges are a necessity as well, constantly saying “Yessuh” and “Yes Ma’am” thousands of times a days to his colleagues is taxing on the Congressman voice.

Also, the prospective nominee should be prolific in what’s commonly called in the Black community as “buck dancing” – the traditional dance slaves and Uncle Toms used to entertain their masters. You know the Congressman is not a young man anymore, he may need a little help prostrating himself on those long days.

Just a few suggestions Mr. Cleaver. If we have any more, we’ll be sure to post them.

    For another example – perhaps not as blatant but equally offensive and racist – see the last two paragraphs of the Post-Dispatch Political Fix entry from 2/25/08 entitled “Slay gets African-American support – on the Web.”
