Q. What do you make of the recent revelation that Strom Thurmond fathered a child with a black woman?
A. I don't have any reason to doubt her word, with or without a DNA test A lot of the old paleo-conservative politicians were just that: politicians. At one time they may have been sincere, but with the political system they end up being bought and sold I'm not surprised to find out he was a race-mixer any more than to find that liberal politicians who publicly are strongly in favor of gun control have armed bodyguards and even carry guns themselves.
It's Friday evening after a tough workweek, and
downtown's ready to rock. Isn't it?
A. I'm not really a follower of sports. Is McNabb the black quarterback and Rush Limbaugh and all that? As far as from a racial issue, there are white men who will watch Monday Night Football with their preteen daughter on their lap [Hair Balls note: What the fuck?] and cheer for African-American football players, and then they're surprised when she goes out in five years and dates African-Americans.
Q. We assume you've got Eminem in heavy rotation now that a bootleg has surfaced of a racist rap he once did, right?
A. In general on him, as you might expect, that's not the kind of music I might listen to all the time.
