Carolinas Mocked On “1600 Penn”

HOLLYWOOD CAN’T  HELP ITSELF … We’ve watched NBC’s new White House-based comedy 1600 Penn a few times and it’s marginally funny. It’s also got hottie Jenna Elfman (and her insanely sleek body) going for it, so there’s that … But as much as we’d love to lust over Elfman’s luscious limbs…

HOLLYWOOD CAN’T  HELP ITSELF …

We’ve watched NBC’s new White House-based comedy 1600 Penn a few times and it’s marginally funny. It’s also got hottie Jenna Elfman (and her insanely sleek body) going for it, so there’s that …

But as much as we’d love to lust over Elfman’s luscious limbs for a few seconds of screen time every Thursday evening, we won’t be watching 1600 Penn again.

Why not? Well, for starters the show is only funny because it’s got a funny fat kid in it. And once the funny fat kid schtick gets old, well … the sit-com falls apart, and has to start reaching for laughs via other, more convenient means.

For example, 1600 Penn became the latest television show to lampoon Southerners – and specifically residents of North and South Carolina – when Stacy Keach guest-starred as a wheelchair-bound U.S. Senator named Strom Thoroughgood (R-N.C.). A caricature meant to evoke the late segregationist Strom Thurmond, Thoroughgood is a corrupt, racist, anti-Semitic lawmaker who is hell bent on blocking a massive increase in funding for our nation’s failed government-run school system.

Unless his state gets some pork barrel spending, of course …

Beyond the underlying (and demonstrably false) implication that bigger government makes for better schools, 1600 Penn didn’t delve into specific education policy – and why should it have? It’s a comedy about a fat kid for crying out loud.

What it did delve into (and extensively reinforce) was the tired old stereotype that Southerners are nothing but a bunch of spiteful intolerants who are in turn led by a bunch of spiteful intolerants – particularly those of us residing here in the Carolinas. And particularly those of us who dare to question left-of-center policies embraced by Hollywood’s chosen one – U.S. President Barack Obama.

As if Thoroughgood wasn’t enough to reinforce the “All Southerners Are Backward” stereotype, 1600 Penn‘s producers offered up his wife “Bunny” – a dim-witted former debutante who capably advanced her own ditzy brand of intolerance toward single, unwed mothers.

Look, we’re not going to deny the existence of racism (and a lot of other – isms) in this “neck of the woods” – even amongst our elected officials – but the last time we checked South Carolina’s Indian-American governor had just appointed an African-American to the U.S. Senate.

In fact he’s the only African-American currently serving in the Senate.

Can a racist state do that?

Of course not … and while this website has been harshly critical of both Nikki Haley and Tim Scott on policy issues (and with good reason), the fact remains their ascension to these prominent posts is a rebuke of the Hollywood stereotype being advanced by 1600 Penn.

A lot of Carolinas’ residents are racist. Sure. But a lot more of them aren’t – making these stereotypes as antiquated as the racism 1600 Penn‘s producers are seeking to pin on us.

Having said that, we’re sure we could find a few folks in Oconee County willing to give 1600 Penn producer Josh Gad a proper Ned Beatty-style welcome in the event he decides to pay the Palmetto State a visit.

And I hate to say it, an appointment that will make his election to the seat much more likely. There’s a difference between running against other similarly-qualified candidates and winning, and being given a head start via appointment.

It isn’t as solid as running as a regular incumbent, but it gives him enough of an edge to make his reelection a safe bet.

There is no conservative mainstream comedy because “conservative comedy” has never been amusing.

During the Carter years, Jimmy was having some problems satisfying Roslyn due to the hostage crisis, OPEC, stagflation, etc. and decided to visit Strom, since Storm is known as quite a ladies man (he married his Beauty Queen wife when she was 16 and he was almost 80). 

Hearing Jimmy’s problem, Strom says, ‘Well I tell ya what Jimmy. What I do is take my ‘thang’ and whack it against the bedpost three times: ‘whack, whack, whack’, then I go over to the nightstand, then again, whack my thang three times: ‘whack, whack, whack’. And I tell ya what Jimmy, it drives the ladies crazy.

Jimmy thanks Strom and heads back to the White House, and Roslyn’s is already in bed. So he follows Strom’s instructions, takes his ‘thang’ and hits it against the bedpost three times: ‘whack, whack, whack’, then he goes over to the nightstand, then again, three times: ‘whack, whack, whack’. 

Then Roslyn leans over and says:

“That you Strom?”

It’s all a matter of degree. And don’t use Nikki (not her real name) as an example of SC’s racial tolerance; she’s always billed herself and tried to pass herself off as white. Tim Scott has “TOKEN” stamped on his forehead. Ever go to church? Not too much mingling on Sunday morning.

Sadly, the GOP did get destroyed by a dumb father and son from Connecticut. The weak vocabulary of George W. Bush fit right in with Texans so he bought a ranch in 1999, a year before he ran for president, and was rarely seen at the ranch. He will tell you about major US/world decisions made at the ranch but all that means is he was a cowboy making those decisions. Fixed Noise is doing the same thing while broadcasting from New York City. They care nothing about the southern way of life. They want us to be more like themselves. Ever wondered why Bush 43 was at an all black school on the morning of 9/11 teaching kids how to read, why he asked Colin Powell to lie to the U.N. about WMDs and why he chose the USS Abraham Lincoln to give his “Mission Accomplished” speech?…while little brother Jeb is about to run for prez. and speak fluent Spanish to another race they care nothing about? So Connecticut is setting the south up for more ridicule through stereotyping.

ChiefFraudFinder January 18, 2013 at 4:44 pm

I hate the way the south gets portrayed but true racism, sexism and homophobia and all exists within the people doing the stereotyping. Politicians all sterotype people and try to keep them in a neat box so they can easily be controlled. Having said that, the name Strom Thoroughgood is quite accurate for a US senator from NC. Strom Thurmond was a lifelong democrat before switching to the GOP in 1964. Currently, NC was taken over by the GOP in 2010. A former NCGOP governor is leading the inquiry into massive academic fraud at UNC CHeat. Jim Martin reduced it all down to black football players and a black African-American Studies chair and his assistant. It took NC 50 years to do what SC did in 1964. Of course, all along the democrats in NC were the same redneck, racists who comprised a democrat party which began the Ku Klux Klan in Tennessee.

Let me make sure I’m reading this right….you are complaining of a TV show that mocks Strom Thurmond as a racist segregationist who married a young wife. You further complain of offense even though for 60 years of his life he covered-up and hid from the public a child he fathered with the black housekeeper’s teenage daughter that under today’s age of consent law would have amounted to statutory rape?

Not to mention that he never met a federal expenditure that he couldn’t rale against for show and votes, but was the first Senator at the trough when federal largesse was being dispersed?

I watched the first show and it was pretty funny and since I am a “leg man” the woman does have a great set of legs. Being damn near 60, I didn’t know who she was and the actor playing prez looks a lot older than he did in “Independence Day” (GREAT escapist flick – BTW – just sit back with some popcorn & root beer and enjoy!!!)

That being said, and since I am a quasi-southner by birth and upbringing I’m not overly sensitive about southern stereotypes. Every region’s got them: northeastern Mafia types,southern/rural hicks,midwestern farmer dips,western/LA “The Dude” types (gotta love “the Great Lebowski”).

So all in all, chill out, have a beer, get laid and don’t get your panties in a wad FITS.

Since I missed this episode, hopefully I can watch it online. I would’ve missed it if FITS wasn’t raising hell about it.

The county council is a bunch of tax lovers with no clue how to control pending and no desire to learn.

They’re either out pimping, chasing whores, gambling or just finding ways to enrich themselves. A sad state of affairs for sure.

Liberals hate everybody except those who buy into and join them in their self loathing hatred, racism and bigoted mindset.

Common Sense
I speak the truth and all you do is to claim I am some other person. Liberals are racists and bigots, history has shown that since 1860s. All liberal suffer from the mental illness called projection.

Isotope soap, how is it I fit the psychological profile as the Unabomber and Tim McVeigh? Got any truth or just false accusations.

What do you two call black conservatives and why? And does that not make you racists and bigots? Please back up your response with something truthful.

Your statement:

“Liberals hate everybody except those who buy into and join them in their self loathing hatred, racism and bigoted mindset.”

From the Unabomber’s manifesto:

“Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled
society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of
our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can
serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern
society in general.”

” Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong,
good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western
civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality.”

Am I making a reaching correlation here?

Republicans love their tokens better than anything…until they show they can think, as Colin Powell just did.

Of course, most GOPers don’t think that much so it shouldn’t be much of a problem for them.

South Carolina deserves to be lampooned. (They elected Nicki Haley didn’t they?!?)

FITS – If you are just now figuring out that South Carolina is the laughingstock of the rest of the country then you are stupider than I already think you are.

Jim DeMint – Joe Wilson – Mark Sanford – Whatever the first name is of that Ravenel guy who got caught dealing coke – Lt. Governor Andre Bauer – should I go on?
