Oprah is a sacred cow: Maryland Republican official in trouble for naming family cow after TV star

by editor on February 26, 2011

Liberals have so damn many rules that it’s tough to keep track of them all, especially at the pace with which they make up new ones. Who knew you couldn’t name a cow after big, beefy woman?

oprah-the-cow

Oprah, the cow, is apparently named after Oprah, the sacred cow

NBC Washington has details of the bovine bloviating:

A political leader in Maryland is under fire because of the name of a family pet.

Diana Waterman, the newly elected First Vice Chairman of the state Republican Party, has a black Angus cow named “Oprah.”

According to the Baltimore Sun, the issue came to light on a recent Facebook posting when the cow birthed a calf.

The Sun says the posting caught the attention of Sveinn Storm, who runs a Queen Anne’s County-focused blog called “Pave Our County?”

Storm criticized Waterman’s naming the cow after the African-American talk show host who has struggled with her weight. Storm say that’s “precisely why an enormouse (sic) number of Americans view Republicans as racists.”

Waterman defends the name. In a response to the Sun she said her children named the family’s three cows. Oprah was named for a person they admire. The other two, Ferdinand and Isabella are named after the Spanish monarchs who approved Christopher Columbus’s trip to the New World.

This brings to mind, of course, the withering criticism we’ve received for naming our office cat Obama. You can read that story here.

We’re thinking of buying a horse and naming its ass after Harry Reid. Anyone know if that would be a problem?

I grew up on a big livestock and dairy farm. We, the 7 children, named many of the animals. As we grew up and went out into the wide, wide world we learned there are more horse’s asses in this world than there are horses. Our horses were and still are, much, much nicer than those “others” referenced! Thinking back I now wonder if the liberal farm kids ( must have been a few) were allowed to name their critters???

I’m still laffing about hisham’s BIG horse who didn’t need a saddle, she needed a couch. LOL!

Anyway, years ago I found a beautiful chocolate brown shar pei wandering down my street. She was a beauty, obviously pure bred, wrinkle upon glorious wrinkle, obviously lost, with no collar. So I popped her into my backyard to play with my Golden while I kept an ear open for anybody calling for a lost dog.

Sure enough, not more than 10 minutes later, I hear a little boy calling out: “OPRAH! OPRAH!”

But that was when Oprah had lost all her weight, so the wrinkles kinda worked ….

I take umbrage at your proposal to name a horses backside after Harry Reid. No horse should have to suffer that indignity.

We owned this great big beautiful Percheron mare called Babe. We gave her to some friends of ours who own a horse ranch here in Kentucky, and when my friend saw this mare he called her Oprah because of her, (his words not mine), big, fat, black ass. I have to admit one thing, she was one hell of a hay burner! You have to remember, this horse stood 16 1/2 hands high, hense big. She was as petite as a sherman tank. Her back end was at least 3 feet wide, hense the fat ass. We didn’t need a saddle, we needed a couch. And she was a very dark chocolate brown almost black color, hense…well, you know what I mean. True story, swear to God!

I think if you’re going to name something after “harry” it should be a jackass… or a harry-ass…. ?

Everything was going well thre was even a birth involved. It is not until the racist liberal got involved that became an issue.

Mrs. Watermans only problem is she got the “cow” part right. And anyone that gets something right is a “bad guy” in the eyes of liberals.

Since when does the girth of a democrats wide posterior have anything to do with racism?

So basically Sveinn Stormis states that Oprah is a big fat black cow in a way that the people that named the cow, the children, never intended. Sounds to me that we know who is *really* the racist person that has issues with weight, don’t we?
