Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Stupid White Man of the Week: Michael Medved


Shorter Medved: Sure, we invaded your country; stole all your land; exterminated 95% of you with weapons of mass destruction; outlawed your culture and religion; kidnapped, tortured, and brainwashed your children; sterilized your women without their knowledge or consent; desecrated your sacred sites; herded you into concentration camps and deliberately starved you, but hey, you guys fought back, so technically that's not *open air quotes* "genocide" *close air quotes*
Hat tip to Wampum for this richly-deserved nomination.
UPDATE: Medved brings his own unique brand of insanity to the issue of neo-Confederate slavery revisionism.

Somebody really ought to put an arrow in his ass.

He's typical of yonegv who are more offended at being accused of genocide than they are at the genocide themselves. By his "logic" the Poles got what they had coming, since they fought back against Germany and Russia in 1939.

But that would mean we would have it coming since - oh hell, it hurts trying to think like a wingnut.

"Think"?

In my dreams Medved travels back in time and wake up in the middle of an Indian village ravaged by smallpox and raided shortly before by American troops (of whatever era), only to be faced by an angry and grief strucken war armed with a club or a tomahawk. Medved will then try to hastily explain why his ancestors are actually not to blame for what happened, as he's being tied to a stake and a fire is being built around him.

Thoughts like that keep me warm at night.
