He has matured


We hate to say we told you so, except for nuh uh, we love it. And we so told you so. This kid, CJ Pearson, he is kind of terrible. How terrible is he? He is so freakin' the worst terrible that the entire conservative interwebs fell madly in love with him, because even though he is but a child, he is far better than your average wingnut at saying sentences about how much Obama sucks. And they all furiously fapped to his YouTube channel, which is gross and wrong, because OOOOH that 13-year-old kid sure showed the president, harumph! And he became a YouTube star, for being an obnoxious conservative teen BLEEP.

We told you he'd grow out of it eventually, and, as per usual, we were right!

CJ Pearson told CNN on Friday that concerns about the Republican Party's viewpoints on racial and gender disparity as well as youth issues convinced him he could no longer be a mouthpiece for conservatism.

"I was tired of being a champion of a party that turned a blind eye to racial discrimination. Tired of being a champion of any cause that denies equal rights to every American. Tired of being a champion of a party that doesn't care about the issues important to young people," Pearson wrote in an email.

The 13-year-old, African-American YouTube star from Georgia said in an interview that he began considering the change after a conversation with another teen friend, who asked why he doesn't speak out on racial discrimination -- to which he replied he was concerned his followers wouldn't be pleased.

What?! Wingnuts who fawn over a black teenager telling off the president might not want to hear about racism? The deuce you say!

Oh, what a long strange trip it's been for the 12-year-old who is now 13. Once upon a time, in February, he was like "Shut up Mr. O'Bamz, you're not the boss of me and you don't love America!" But young CJ has evolved and discovered that his beloved Republican Party -- he was, up until five minutes ago, chairman of "Teens for Ted," as in Cruz -- is kind of, you know, messed up. He also watched the video released last week of Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke shooting a 16-year-old to death in the street, for which the cop has been charged with first-degree murder. And that led CJ to thinkin' that maybe there is some sort of racial injustice in U.S. America?

He said the video of Laquan McDonald being shot 16 times by a police officer in Chicago helped open his eyes to the systemic problems of racial discrimination in America and the need to look at the issues objectively.

And now that CJ's thinking about systemic racism for the first time in his young life, he's thinking that maybe he isn't so at home in the Republican Party. Not that he's suddenly going to start snarfing tofurkey burgers with vegan "cheese" and wearing Birkenstocks to Bernie rallies. Not yet, anyway. But he's already quoting President Obama, favorably, by noting, "There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is the United States of America."

So give him a few more months, or years even, of evolution and eye-opening and exploring his political identity and learning 'bout stuff and realizing what the Republican Party thinks of young black men who don't call the black president an ISIS sympathizer, and unlike the grown-ass adults who have loved CJ's earlier work, he might just turn out to be a decent human person being after all.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
