Syndicated Christian talker and values huckster Willy Cunningham (KVI Sundays, 7-10p) said on Cincinnati local radio Tuesday of Barack Obama's childhood: "Imagine at the age of 1 or 2 seeing your father for the last time. See, his father was a typical black father who, right after the birth, left the baby. That's what black fathers do. They simply leave."
It's getting desperate. The electoral paths to victory for Olde John McCain are fewer and fewer: nothing that his campaign has thrown at Obama has stuck, so it's left to the talk radio slop-trough creepy-crawlers like Cunningham.
(With surrogates like Cunningham, is it any wonder Republicans rarely convince black voters -- or brown, for that matter -- to vote for Republicans?)
McCain was once an honorable man. KVI was once an honorable station, why do either one of these entities put up with him? This is certainly not the first time we've heard such inciteful rhetoric from this guy.
Wednesday, Cunningham told listeners: "Traditionally, we think of women as Democratic voters because a lot of women who are single are vulnerable; they need like a daddy government to keep an eye on them."
As Media Matters has documented, on October 27 Cunningham claimed that "[a]mong the so-called noble poor in America ... birth control is not used so illegitimate children can be brought into the world, so the mom can get more checks in the mail from the government."
Here's the full transcript of his musings on black men, Obama's mother and the transparent fears Cunningham has about the heft of his own penis:
And that's all fine, he had nothing to do with it, he was a victim. I was raised as a Roman Catholic, and I had no choice. But it's who he is. He was raised as a Muslim at the two - at the two schools he attended. One was Christian -- raised as a Muslim -- the other one was secular. Why doesn't he admit the truth? I would vote for a Muslim in a heartbeat if they were a conservative who was pro-life, secured the Southern border, hold down taxes, hold down regulation. I'd have no problem with a Muslim, a Jewish, a Catholic, even an atheist president if he believed in my political viewpoints. But by all the writings of Obama, he's to the left of Karl Marx. He's written articles praising Karl Marx. And this guy's about to seize the presidency because people don't wanna know the facts. They simply want to move on and vote.
