Worst Instincts in Delaware Politics: Still Charles Lammot du Pont Copeland

Filed in National by on April 7, 2011

From leaving a safe Republican Senate seat and turning it over to a Democrat, to his current infatuation with tea party craziness, Copeland continues to prove that he has the worst politcal instinct in Delaware.

Check out the awesome teabag numbers from a recent WSJ/NBC poll and laugh along with me:

In the new survey, 29% felt very positive or somewhat positive about the tea party, the same level of positive feeling registered in January. But 44% felt negatively toward the movement, and the percentage of Americans who feel very negatively jumped six percentage points from January, to 30%.

Teabagz are now less popular than Dick Cheney. A full 74% of Americans dislike teabaggery as Charlie warms up to it.

Here is a Time magazine cover from November 27th, 1964.

    Why is there a phallic symbol, wearing a stupid smile, dripping something gooey out of it’s end, into a lady’s slipper?

  2. Cpt Robespierre says:

    In the 1960s, was “modern alchemy” defined as making ladies’ shoes out of lead? Maybe some of the older people on the site can help me out here.

    The Cpt. may be on to something…… not lead, but something else.

    Those were the days, back when Republicans believed in science, paid their fair share of taxes, supported Planned Parenthood, and defended civil liberties so we wouldn’t be like the Soviets.

    Dear children of the planet,
    I’d hoped to change Charlies outlook back in ’64 when I ravished him on the nearby floodplain at Thomson’s Bridge. But, some people have such closed minds.
    This picture is a perfect metaphor of what I had in mind for Charles.
    You can’t think of the shoe as the end result, but as the beginning.
    I was much more successful with Kurt Vonnegut when I ravished him in Rochester.
    He incorporated the idea I was going for in SLAUGHTERHOUSE-5, where the bombers fly backwards and suck up the destruction into easily handled packages that can be separated upon dismantling and the evil substances forever quarantined from one another.

    Hey, you know what? Charlie’s grandfather was a decent guy and a great Delawarean. Enough with the kooky anonymous fantasies.

    By the way, a lot of Copeland’s papers relating to political campaigns and Planned Parenthood are still under time seal at Hagley, some until the end of this decade.

    Oh lighten up, anon.
    It was a comment on “Better Living Through Chemistry”.

  8. I don’t like how this flasks are looking at me.

    So true. I doubt Grandpa Lammot would have much love for Charlie’s modern Republicanism.

    The main attraction of the DuPont exhibit at the 1964 New York world’s fair was Corfam. It was a leather substitute made from DuPont products like polyurethane and polyester.

  11. anon says:

    My mother made my father throw out his Corfam shoes because they made his feet stink.

  12. reis says:

    The chemistry set on the magazine cover is freaking me out. Way too much symbolism there.

  13. Republican David says:

    Jason can’t read. The 30% is part of the 44%. There is no 74% feeling negatively. In fact http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/april_2011/48_say_their_views_closer_to_tea_party_than_congress

    It is time to move beyond these artificial divisions and tackle issues.

    Hey, little Lefty, Commie, “Progressive” Buddies….THE TEA PARTY IS COMING TO GET YOU ! OH YEAH.
