Misdemeanor? More Like Miss-da-point

October 31, 2010

From Raw Story:

A volunteer for Rand Paul’s Senate campaign has been charged with misdemeanor assault after being filmed stomping on a progressive activist’s head during a debate, Kentucky news sources report.

Timothy Profitt of Bourbon County, Kentucky, has admitted to being the person seen stomping on MoveOn activist Lauren Valle’s head and shoulder as she tried to hand Paul a mock award.

Profitt will appear in front of a judge on Nov. 18 to face fourth-degree assault charges, reports the Lexington Herald-Leader. He faces a maximum 12-month prison sentence or $500 fine.

Actually, the Lexington paper clarifies the sentence possibilities:

Fourth-degree assault carries a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail, a $500 fine or a combination of both.

Oh, well that makes me feel better. 

Not.

Brownshirt Bubba could still get off with a fine lower than what my partner and I spent on our take-out Chinese lunch today.

Good thing Profitt isn’t African-American and wasn’t wearing gold chains and a LeBron jersey, eh?  Unless, of course, the video of the incident is, I dunnow, played backwards?

Saturday Night at the You Tubes

A nice critique of insanity:


Gee…Four Days Before a U.S. National Election and…

October 29, 2010

wouldn’tcha know it…

We have a terrorism scare!

What next?  A release of a new Bin Laden tape timed to interrupt Game 4 of the World Series?

Its as if Bin Laden and his boys are reading from Karl Rove’s playbook.

Or is it the other way around?


Senator Slappee?

October 29, 2010

Looks like Linda McMahon…

…has gone the Nahm Coleman route and gotten one of her kids to shill for her in her attempt to buy a seat in the U.S. Senate.

In it, she actualy calls the McMahon’s entertainment product “family friendly.”

A bunch of steroid-fueled freaks stomping around, beating the shit out of each other and teaching non-westler men that its okay to beat the shit out of women.

Like mother…

But, hopefully, not like Connecticut.


Breaking: Rick Santorum Decides to Trick-or-Treat in Wisconsin Dressed as Elvira

October 29, 2010

Well, maybe not.  But, be honest – if you saw this photo:

and this quote from the person in that photo:

In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs?

Isn’t the title of this post a reasonable assumption? 

Here’s the context – which, as always with christofascists, shows that the full story is even worse than the ugly soundbite makes it appear:

Republican candidate for Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch compared same-sex marriage to marrying a clock during a radio interview.”This is a slippery slope,” Kleefisch said. “In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs?

“This is ridiculous,” continued Kleefisch. “And biblically, again, I’m going to go right back to my fundamental Christian beliefs marriage is between one man and one woman.”

“The people of Wisconsin are against gay marriage,” Kleefisch later told FOX6’s Real Milwaukee. “The people of Wisconsin spoke on this issue, as you guys are aware, in 2006 passed a constitutional amendment that said marriage is between one man and one woman.”

Asked how she felt about Wisconsin’s amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage, Kleefisch responded that she is “against gay marriage as well” because it is a “fiscal back breaker.”

“The legislative fiscal bureau announced about five days ago that we are actually $265 million dollars further in the hole than we expected to be this year,” said Kleefisch. “We just don’t have the money to be giving out for extra benefits right now. It’s a fiscal back breaker.”

Naturally, getting rid of all taxpayer-funded special rights for all married people is off the table, eh?

Oh…

Logic.

Silly me.

Now, I could say something nastier about this clown (and the fake apology that followed.)  But instead I’m going to  level off on the person most responsible for all of this.

John McCain.

Yes, Grumpy McAlzheimers has gotten his revenge – no, not for losing the 2008 election.  He obviously didn’t care about winning that; had he actually won in 2008, he’d have actually had to do some work.  No, he was out for revenge against America for letting his privileged lil’ third-generation-House-of-Annapolis self rot in the Hanoi Hilton for a few years.

Rebecca Kleefisch has clearly spent a good bit of time at the Sarah Palin School for Delectable Electable MILFs.  In 2008 John McCain legitimized that school’s namesake and unleashed her on America the way that the animal rights activists unleashed the rage-infected monkeys on England at the beginning of 28 Days Later.

And now we have Kleefisch, Christine O’Donnell, Nikki Haley, the increasingly-media-legitimized Michele Bachmann and, of course, not simply Milfy McMooseburger herself but a Milfy McMooseburger that now gets serious discussion as presidential material for 2012.

22 Months Later…

No, our population hasn’t seroconverted into the raging psychotic primal beasts that the UK population became in that flick (teabagger crowds – particularly at Rand Paul rallies – not withstanding), but our political discourse has been overrun by substanceless barbiebots whose sole purpose is to con a Viagra-addled male American populace whose employment prospects were converted into trust funds for Phil Gramm’s grandchildren into voting for the same policies that have ensured that the blood spilled by The Greatest Generation in World War II – and their children in Vietnam and their children in the Persian Gulf War – will have given life not to a modern, reality-based America but to a re-animated 14th Century Spain.

It might have happened without McCain’s help – but we have him to thank for it happening now.

Vote accordingly.


Pope Palpatine: Science is Bad For My Business

October 29, 2010

Well, the child-molester-coddling con artist d/b/a “Pope Benedict XVI” didn’t say it in so many words, but given his crime syndicate’s track record with Galileo (not to mention the millions of people said syndicate murdered during the Inquisition), I thought I’d translate it for him:

Stephen Hawking is wrong, Pope Benedict XVI said Thursday – God did create the universe.

The pope didn’t actually mention the world-famous scientist, who argues in a book published last month that the laws of physics show there is no need for a supreme being to have brought the world into existence.

In fact, Benedict specifically praised – and blessed – science and scientists in an address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

But he also made clear that part of the role of science is to reveal God in the universe.

He added that he praises baseball, but wanted it known that the role of baseball is to score touchdowns.  After his speech, he dined on a dinner of jumbo shrimp at an exclusive gathering of gay Republican members of U.S. military intelligence.
