I see the ghost of Mitt Romney, i.e. Mitt Romney

So many Republican presidential candidates, so many favorites. It’s like picking a particular virus. All the many, many things to consider. Do you just wanna die, or would you like to linger?

First the wingnuts think Michelle Bachmann is wonderful. She’s energetic and Christian and conservative right down to her Buckley® corset and stare. Isn’t she great?

The Minnesota congresswoman last month suggested that God was punishing Washington for excessive spending by sending an earthquake and a hurricane (Her campaign later said she was joking), noted the “rise of the Soviet Union” 20 years after that regime collapsed, confused Elvis Presley’s birthday with the anniversary of his death, erred on the location of John Wayne’s birthplace in Iowa, and claimed the famous Revolutionary War battle at Lexington and Concord had been fought in New Hampshire.

She’s also bright as a bag of midnight. Oh well, time to move on. How ’bout that Rick Perry? He’s friendly, got good hair and a drawl. What’s not to like?

“Let me tell you, there’s three agencies of government that are gone when I get there,” Perry said. “Commerce, education and the, um, uh, what’s the third one there . . Commerce, Education and the, um, EPA . . the third agency of government, I would do away with: Education, Commerce and let’s see . . the third one, I can’t. Oops.”

He’s clueless about his own campaign. And government. Boy, these people are . . interesting. How the hell did they ever get this far? How is it that they’re being taken seriously, even momentarily, as candidates for president?

It’s not like they’ve ever hidden these massive flaws. Bachmann’s been famously dumb and loopy as long as anyone can remember. She tried to amend the Minnesota constitution to outlaw gay marriage in 2003, 2004 and 2005. Her own marriage narrowly escaped.

When President Bush signed the Energy Independence and Security Act outlawing the future manufacture and sale of incandescent bulbs, she responded with the Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act. You can imagine what that’s supposed to do, as if energy-sucking 19th century technologies were somehow American as eagles. If Sir Humphry Davy is so heart-broken, he can sit down with Tom Edison and have a cry.

Governor Rick Perry executed an innocent man charged with the arson murder of his own children. Killing innocent people is a sport in Texas. The mere approximation of ‘murder’ and ‘children’ in a sentence is evidence enough to shoot a man on sight. But Rick happens to be the head of government, which is supposed to manage it through legal means.

When actual arson experts (what?) looked at the evidence after the execution (who knew?) they saw nothing to indicate anything other than an accident.

. . Dr. Craig Beyler, hired by the Texas Forensic Science Commission to review the case, found that “a finding of arson could not be sustained”. Beyler said that key testimony from a fire marshal at Willingham’s trial was “hardly consistent with a scientific mind-set and is more characteristic of mystics or psychics.”

When government officials were to re-convene to consider the report, Perry finally sprang into action:

The Texas Forensic Science Commission was scheduled to discuss the report by Beyler at a meeting on October 2, 2009, but two days before the meeting Texas Governor Rick Perry replaced the chair of the commission and two other members. The new chair canceled the meeting—sparking accusations that Perry was interfering with the investigation and using it for his own political advantage.

Rest in peace, Cameron Todd Willingham. Your death is still considered a ‘win’ in Texas. In the end, that was the only fact Rick Perry paid any attention to.

The point I’m making here is that these Republican presidential candidates are a scary bunch. It’s shocking that any one of these loons is this close to the presidency. It’s especially shocking when they carry suicidal baggage the way they do: publicly and proudly.

Voters should be horrified by the selection of grotesques. They should be screaming bloody murder for being forced even to consider a Rick Santorum:

“I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.”

Instead, they’re happy to pick one immoral, un-American fool after another. As if they were picking body sprays or Chinese food. Encouraged by the affirmation, a candidate cranks up the crazy and suddenly Mr. or Mrs. Average is dismayed. President Newt would do what to judges that annoyed him? Arrest them?

“Sure. If you had to. Or you’d instruct the Justice Department to send a U.S. Marshal.”

So much for the Constitution, checks and balances, judicial impartiality, blah blah. So many things stand between Newt and his liberty. It’s all pretty funny if your sense of humor shades to darkness.

It’s even funnier when you see where this is all going. The candidate to beat in this gnomic clusterfuck is Willard Romney. Mittens is a man so devoid of courage, color or personality he could be a cloud of carbon dioxide. People invite him to parties in case an electrical fire breaks out. He sits in the corner drinking fruit juice, no ice thanks, and talks to a candle.

Tomorrow, he will win easily in New Hampshire. That’ll put about 8 of his 10 slender, lady-lke fingers around the throat of the Republican nomination. He won’t take a firm grip for weeks. He won’t even think of squeezing for months probably, and the circus will go on. Meanwhile Ron Paul will surface to tell you that AIDS patients should pay not only for all their own healthcare, but for the carpentry and maintenance of slender coffins, their deaths being unusual and self-involved. Hooray.


Ron Paul could be whacko

This ‘Ron Paul’. He’s a kook?

In early book, Rep. Ron Paul criticized AIDS patients, minority rights and sexual harassment victims
Peter Hamby | CNN | Dec 30 2011

In his 1987 manifesto “Freedom Under Siege: The U.S. Constitution after 200-Plus Years,” Paul wrote that AIDS patients were victims of their own lifestyle, questioned the rights of minorities and argued that people who are sexually harassed at work should quit their jobs.


“The individual suffering from AIDS certainly is a victim – frequently a victim of his own lifestyle – but this same individual victimizes innocent citizens by forcing them to pay for his care,” Paul wrote.

Let’s see if I get this right. One of those lucky people, like diabetics and dialysis patients dependent upon life-long medical support, an AIDS patient, she/he should work like a Mali slave to survive? I anticipate problems. I see a giddy morticians’ lobby.

“Every year new groups organize to demand their ‘rights,'” he continued. “White people who organize and expect the same attention as other groups are quickly and viciously condemned as dangerous bigots. Hispanic, black, and Jewish caucuses can exist in the U.S. Congress, but not a white caucus, demonstrating the absurdity of this approach for achieving rights for everyone.”

You distinguish yourself with courage, Ron Paul. White folks get shafts, screws, short ends of the stick, lumps of coal, turds in their punch goblets, runts in their kennels, and rats under their chalets. Dude, why not have a White Caucus?

And well done, sir.


Ron Paul: I peddled bigotry but I don’t want to talk about it

Ron Paul’s newsletter in 1992:

“Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. … What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.”


“. . those who don’t commit sodomy, who don’t get blood a transfusion, and who don’t swap needles, are virtually assured of not getting AIDS unless they are deliberately infected by a malicious gay.”

Ron Paul, 1995, telling you how great this literature is:

. . followed by Ron currently refusing to discuss all the racist, homophobic junk he published for years and profited from.

It’s been out there for a long time, so the current question isn’t what sort of man Ron is. He’s fatally flawed. The question is: How has he remained so popular? He clearly doesn’t merit the attention.

You will recall a Black candidate from 2008 who had to disavow the personal and professional relationship he’d had with a supposedly racist pastor, Jeremiah Wright. That was so disgusting a liaison in Conservatives’ eyes that it categorically eliminated Barack Obama from being president. It didn’t matter that Wright was not, in fact, a racist.

Now you’ve got an Iowa caucus frontrunner that, if not himself a racist, ran a business that peddled nasty bigotry year after year after year. He profited handsomely from the trade. But he’s currently more popular than ever?

I’m sure our Conservative friends will get around to holding him up to the lofty standards that all presidential candidates must meet. Eventually.


Pat Buchanan is a vicious, bigoted shit

How is it that Pat Buchanan gets on television? Ever? He’s got to be one of America’s shittiest citizens. In a world of rough justice, the hate police would have gassed him.

Let’s hear it for prejudice
Pat Buchanan | WND | July 01, 2011

. . given that no nation in 20 centuries of Christendom legalized homosexual marriage and, in this century, majorities in all 31 states where it has been on the ballot have rejected it, [Richard] Cohen is pretty much saying that, since the time of Christ, Western history has been an endless Dark Age dominated by moral ignoramuses and bigots.

That’s certainly one interpretation. And a well-supported one. James Joyce: “History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.”

You don’t just have to be a nasty human being to be like Buchanan. You have to be stupid, too. What would he have said about Awesome Western Eden after the Emancipation Proclamation? “President Lincoln spits in the faces of slaves by insulting their native country.” Something like that. After the 19th Amendment? “No modern country has survived with women having the right to vote.” If everything won’t stay the same, Pat will organize an exodus. Progress is degrading.

What is the moral basis of the argument that homosexuality is normal, natural and healthy? In recent years, it has been associated with high levels of AIDS and enteric diseases, and from obits in gay newspapers, early death.

My Thor, I want to strangle this guy. What sorts of arguments are these? ‘Sure, people are born that way. But they’re vermin. Look at ’em dying all over the place, like cockroaches.’ And in Africa, it’s heterosexual activity that’s “been associated with high levels of AIDS.” So if missionary position Pat were an African, he’d be the antithesis of normal, natural and healthy. Hell, I imagine he’d tell you that himself. He probably reminds the boys down at the Elks Club the same thing every Monday night.

Still, Cohen is not without a point when he uses the term “prejudice.”

As Albert Einstein observed, “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18.” By 14, most boys have learned on the playground there is something disordered about boys sexually attracted to other boys.

Einstein’s ironic take on common sense to learn us about the intelligence of homophobia? I’m almost at a loss for words. ‘Moron’ doesn’t come close. And what the hell do 14 year-olds learn about the gay ‘disorder’ on the playground? Are gay kids having sex at recess? Or are they too lovestruck to throw a football?

I really wanted to tear to bits this codger-cunt’s screed insult by insult, but I just can’t. I’m too pissed. Too disgusted. I don’t need any more of this crap, I’m off to the bar.


I wonder how people can be this stupid

How can people survive being this dumb? How do they manage to get by in life, drive their cars? Use a credit card? Count their change? I don’t know.

Legislator warns of HIV epidemic in New York if marriage equality becomes law
By Ashton Elijah • Thursday, June 23, 201

. . Sam Trombley (R), while at Wednesday night’s meeting of the Clinton County [New York] legislature, voiced that he couldn’t understand why the health department focused on tobacco and smoking, but not homosexuality.

“I’m surprised the health department has not come out against this because we are going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes,” Trombley said.

Then, he attacked the very idea of homosexual relationships, saying that the idea “blew his mind.”

“You don’t see two male dogs sleeping in the same dog house together,” said Trombley.

But you do see boy and girl dogs doing that. And you should hear the couple next door going at it: fighting, scratching and clawing, howling. Breaking glass, clanging pots and pans. They turn up the TV, but we hear it all the same. She’s a bitch, but he married her anyway.

Bill Donohue: We Shouldn’t Allow Gay Marriage Because People Still Get AIDS
Joe. My. God. | June 23 2011

“Before the New York State legislature decides whether to ratify homosexual marriage, it would be nice if one of the lawmakers were to ask what in the world is going on in the gay community. [snip] Between 2007-2009, there was a 6 percent decrease in gay men using condoms. Furthermore, homosexuals account for 60 percent of all newly diagnosed HIV infections each year; in addition, 60 percent of gays who have syphilis also have HIV. Moreover, 85 percent of gays with syphilis continue to have sex. The lawmakers need to ask gay leaders to testify about this issue.”

Okay, I take the ‘stupid’ back. Bill is a troll.


Gary Cass has the un-Christian gall to post a “It Does Not Get Better” video

I suppose it had to happen. Some Christian ass would take it upon himself to counterattack the potent, heartfelt “It Gets Better” video series that speaks to the difficulties of growing up gay in America.

Dan Savage’s project urges gays who have made the painful, difficult transition to open adulthood to talk about it:

Many LGBT youth can’t picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can’t imagine a future for themselves. So let’s show them what our lives are like, let’s show them what the future may hold in store for them.

It’s a great message: though hopelessness is what many gay teens feel, they don’t have to accept it. ‘Your life can and will get better.’

Some folks, though, didn’t appreciate the noble effort. For Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (really?), this message needed knocking down. So he defames all of homosexuality and homosexuals in this horrible, horrible video:

It Doesn’t Get Better from DefendChristians.org on Vimeo.

The ‘scholarship’ here is pathetic. Gary says the homos are a sickly bunch, like AIDS is a gay disease — just look at what the CDC says. Except the report he uses looks at epidemiology only in the United States where probably half of the cases are transmitted through homosexual sex. Outside the U.S., the majority of cases are transmitted through heterosexual sex. So the larger truth is it’s the straights, like Gary Cass, who are the sickly ones.

Meanwhile, in an accompanying post, Gary would remind you gay parenting is infectious, too:

It is a lie that homosexual parenting is harmless to children. (Source: “Study: Gay Parents More Likely to Have Gay Kids,” AOL News, October 17, 2010)

. . so Cass is a thoroughly stupid, insulting person.


Catholic columnist Matt Abbott infects his readers with the Syphilis of Hate

It’s been a great day. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell begins to wheeze its last gasps and crawl towards the light. Goodbye. See you. Rest in peace, you stupid, flawed, angry, punitive, backward policy. Cue the funky little person: “This house is clean . .”

Very much better. Meanwhile, the narrowly and perversely righteous violently lament. They beat their breasts and lash out with their tongues at witnessing the death-by-democracy of the patron saint of cramp-ed foxholes and communal showers, St. Gehfobia:

Congress infects military with ‘spiritual AIDS’
By Matt C. Abbott | December 19, 2010

Sad to say, I’m afraid Congress has just infected our military with “spiritual AIDS,” if you will, by repealing DADT — much to the delight of the homosexualists in our midst.

Let’s pretend Matt Abbott isn’t an utter moron? Let’s say we try.

Gays have forever served in our military. For centuries now, wherever the military went, gays went too. Whatever the military did, gays did too. And no one’s ever been able to discover a single gay soldier by assessing the quality of his or her service. There’s no issue about how well they serve and served their country.

So, Abbott’s “spiritual AIDS” consists entirely of this: not being able to throw them out of the military once someone knows their sexual orientation. In other words, if Matt’s buddies can’t rig up a whole ridiculous process by which they can tell gays “We Hate You” and then end their careers, a deadly spiritual sickness will set upon and kill the military.

Right — hey Matt: why don’t you cover your festering mouth? Keep your oozing hate to yourself? You’re stanking up the joint.


Fetching Tea Party cavewoman attacks evolution, sodomy sprites, devil winds, monkey hats, food stamps, red fire . .

. . salted food, thatched huts, free-standing enclosures. All the stupid things you stupid people keep shoving through the bars of modern time, poking the likes of a pure-hearted knuckle-dragger like Christine O’Donnell.

Life on Earth created over millions of years? UNGA BUNGA!

“Evolution is a theory and it’s exactly that,” O’Donnell said. “There is not enough evidence, consistent evidence to make it as fact . .”

“Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that,” O’Donnell said.

Yes, the evidence being the Book of Genesis’ well-observed celestial rotation. Sure, the Earth and its 24 hour re-orientation to our sun were created a few millenia ago in the midst of the Bible re-orientating to its sun.

. . they use carbon dating, as an example, to prove that something was millions of years old. Well, we have the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens and the carbon dating test that they used then would have to then prove that these were hundreds of millions of years younger, when what happened was they had the exact same results on the fossils and . .

BONGA MONGA! Gays act bad. That’s why AIDS patients are not “victims”:

After a caller suggested that contracting AIDS is “like a bank robber getting shot in the head while in the act of committing the robbery,” O’Donnell agreed that “he makes an excellent point.”

“The caller before him referred to people who get AIDS as victims,” O’Donnell continued. “It’s that kind of spinning with words and manipulating with words that empowers the bias when it comes to AIDS.” . . cancer is “just an act of God” but that “your behavior is directly connected to whether you get AIDS.”

BINGA MINGA! Condoms? They don’t work. They’re “anti-human”:

“And what … if the population is increasing, so what?” O’Donnell said. “People aren’t bad. When did humans become a bad thing? Why is it that we have to, you know, stop people from getting pregnant?”

Club her and drag her off to your tree!

. . O’Donnell declared that “condoms will not protect you from AIDS.”

“So to just throw a bunch of condoms over to Africa and say, ‘Here, we’re helping you with AIDS,’ is just going to further the spread of AIDS over there,” she said.

PONGO BONGO! Do I have to keep going? I’m running out of Cro-Magnon gibberish . .

. . . the liberal welfare program implemented in the last decade . . . they have cultivated an attitude of dependency,” O’Donnell said . . .

We see the same kind of abuse with food stamps… people are abusing our compassion.”

MUMBA BUMBA! What an ass.


Tea Party anti-masturbation candidate Christine O’Donnell is a whoop-whoop-WHACK-A-DOODLE

UPDATED: the revelations keep coming, see below . .

What else can you say of her?

Here are the O’Donnell issues, opinions and oddities:
1.) Viewing pornography is cheating on your spouse.
2.) Any fool who masturbates is ‘toying with his sexuality.’
3.) Radio interviewers who challenge her must be getting paid by the opposition. Conservative interviewers.
4.) She filed paperwork claiming that she made only 5,800 bucks last year. By contrast, Senator John Kerry from Massachusetts is worth a couple hundred million dollars. But wait: “I made more than $5,800,” O’Donnell told me in the September 2 interview, but said she did not have to and would not disclose how much. Oh, okay.
5.) She got demoted and fired from a $65,000 job and thought a whopping lawsuit in the amount of $6.9 million was justified.
6.) The incompetent, pro-right-wing lackey pollster Rasmussen is out to get her.
7.) It took 17 years and a few thousand for lingering university debts before she finally received her college degree, just a few days ago.
8.) Her tormentors are out hiding in her bushes and vandalizing her signs.

As for those liberal thugs lyng in wait so that they may leap upon her and seize her, perhaps imploring her to masturbate finally, this is what she said:

They’re following me. They follow me home at night. I make sure that I come back to the townhouse and then we have our team come out and check all the bushes and check all the cars to make sure that—they follow me.

That’s what’s disgusting, as you can see from the YouTube videos. They knock on the door at all hours of the night. They’re hiding in the bushes when I’m at candidate forums. In 2008 they broke into my home. They vandalized my home. They wrote nasty notes on my front door, on my front porch. They jeopardized my safety. They did the same thing to our campaign office. They broke into our campaign office. They vandalized our campaign office. They stole files. My campaign signs that had my picture—they put a spear in my mouth poked out my eyes, and cut out the part of my heart, and wrote nasty names all over those campaign signs.

This is an overwrought human being. And that’s why the overwrought Teabaggers have just put Christine O’Doodle ahead in the polling for that Delaware Senate seat . .

ADD: Then there’s this little tidbit, from the lawsuit filed on behalf of our pudding-skinned prude:

“On one occasion during her employment, a co-worker, Mr. Cain, in connection with Ms. O’Donnell’s efforts and work on the Gala, ordered or stated to Ms. O’Donnell to ‘strap it on,’ which was a crude and demeaning reference to an artificial male sexual organ used by some females in order to act like a male in sexual acts,” the complaint alleged. “To Ms. O’Donnell’s knowledge and belief, Mr. Cain was never disciplined or reprimanded for making this offensive statement.”


Tea Party lunatic and anti-masturbation queen Christine O’Donnell

Delaware gets its share of howling loonies, and this is a prime example.

Christine O’Donnell is running for Senate in the state. She’s running against Rep. Mike Castle for the GOP nomination. She’s crazy as a shithouse catfish:

“When a married person uses pornography, or is unfaithful, it compromises not just his (or her) purity, but also compromises the spouse’s purity. As a church, we need to teach a higher standard than abstinence. We need to preach a righteous lifestyle.”

On an MTV show about abstinence (as summarized by Huffington Post), O’Donnell explained:

“The reason that you don’t tell [people] that masturbation is the answer to AIDS and all these other problems that come with sex outside of marriage is because again it is not addressing the issue. … You’re just gonna create somebody who is, I was gonna say, toying with his sexuality. Pardon the pun.”

Pornography is adultery. Good Lord, masturbation is toying with your sexuality. And the government spends too much. Obviously, these are all horribly wrong.

Speaking of which — you know what’s not wrong? Having supporters and former employees call your fellow Republican, the guy you’re trying to beat to the nomination, an ass-humping prevert:

Actually, they didn’t call him that, they just passed on one of those rumors that everyone knows to be true and voters should really be aware of, cuz’, y’know, maybe they hadn’t heard it yet. Who wouldn’t be grateful for that breaking ‘news’? O’Donnell is a fount of good intentions and accurate information.

But, then, you know how recent college graduates can be, talking your ear off about all the crazy things they think they know.
