Channeling Sarah Palin, Campfield Denounces Obama's 'Shuck and Jive Song and Dance'

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2012 at 11:08 AM

State Senate clown Stacey Campfield is offering his post-election analysis on his blog. He joins many GOP finger-pointers in blaming Chris Christie (whose name Campfield can't spell) for President Obama's victory. To Christie, Campfield says: "Your [sic] dead to me." We're certain this is breaking Christie's heart. How dare the New Jersey governor tour his storm-ravaged state with the president of the United States? What was he thinking?

Then Campfield tosses in a little old-fashioned racism, referring apparently to Obama's entire first term as a "shuck and jive song and dance." Campfield probably was imitating Sarah Palin, who caught flak for condemning Obama's response to the attacks in Benghazi as a "shuck and jive shtick" in a note on her Facebook page. Racism is really effective in just about any context. Here's the Knoxville senator's post:

Well we didn't win them all but I was close in most of my predictions. Republicans picked up some seats in both the house and senate. We retained all our congressional seats and Romney won Tennessee big. Chris Christy? Your dead to me. NJ might have won but the rest of the nation lost. I was a fan but you were the momentum killer. If it weren't for him I think Mitt would have won. Obama is going to really have to step up. The shuck and jive song and dance will only continue to cripple our nation and the issues are too big.

Ah well there is always next time.
