Jim, Foolish Literalist
In these bleak times, here’s something funny
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: I think it’s fair to say that nobody was less informed as a result of his absence
So now the conservatives in the House are rallying around the Palin/Cruz delusion rally. Say they have a good position going in to next week. The god of stupidity is obviously dead.
I think your evidence does not support your position. The god of stupidity has clearly never had so many worshipers.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist:
Petulant and unprofessional conduct. If you leave the press briefing, you don’t get that story; the only justification for leaving is to get a more worthwhile story. Ed Henry’s one of the big kids. He ought to know this.
The god of stupidity is not necessarily a stupid god. I think he’s be more rational and clever about it than this pathetic shitfest.
@Jeff Spender: FSM save me from your followers.
What does it matter if he is in the room? Isn’t he going to lie about it anyway?
@Amir Khalid: The story is him, plus “That president is disrespecting us!” subtext “Our goalposts! Ours! Along with everything else! Ooooooouuuuuuurrrrrsssss ♫ Our Country Fuck to Thee, Ours Is the Liberty, It’s Ours I Say! ♬
Jeff may have it right.
The god of stupidity doesn’t have to be any more stupid than any other god. The mascot of stupidity would have to be though.
So Historical Footnote got his car elevator approved by the City of San Diego.
Why do I find this so hilarious?
I was following this on Twitter: Palin and Cruz joined a RW rally at one of the closed memorial sites. Apparently the rally was flying a Confederate flag. The image is being bounced around between wingnuts to bolster their resolve, and seems to be achieving that end.
There are so many things wrong with this, it’s hard to know where to start. But if the GOP in the House and Senate decide this means they can and should dig in their heels, I believe they’re in for an unpleasant surprise.
ETA: Wait; I think the Confederate flags were being shown at a rally in front of the White House. I’m not sure which one Palin and Cruz were at; not sure if even they’re delusional enough to be photographed standing near a Confederate flag.
I saw that picture. Confederate flag outside of the White House, next to a Marine flag. There is ALL KINDS of wrong with that, and that doesn’t even touch on the racial implications.
If the R’s want to rally around the traitor flag, well fuck them.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: I picture Carney looking around the room just afterwards with an innocent expression on his face: “Mr. Henry? Did I see you had a question? Mr. Henry?”
@Suzanne: Technically it was the city of La Jolla, but that’s just me nitpicking.
I find it hilarious Mr 47% wants a residence in such a high-tax Democratically controlled state like California in the first place. Maybe Rafalca doesn’t like Utah.
@Jeff Spender: That shit is nothing new for vets rallies. It’s very easy to get wingnut vets to go to rallies but wait till THEIR checks stop coming.
I wonder if the clown holding the big Confederate flag at the WH protest was pissed that the Lincoln Memorial was closed.
@Yatsuno: Especially in a city so close to all the brown people.
I wouldn’t blame Historical Footnote’s dancing horse for not liking Utah. I know I don’t like Utah. I got stuck in the SLC airport for a few hours once on a Sunday, AND I COULDN’T BUY A BEER. Fuckers.
Probably pissed there isn’t a John Wilkes Booth memorial for “balance.”
Why would a person who fought for the US wave the flag of the CSA? It just…it doesn’t make any fucking sense.
There is a photo on Huffington of a paraplegic vet, on a Segway, helping to remove one of the barriers. I hope he realizes that if the shutdown continues his VA benefits will stop and the WWII memorial being closed will be the least of his worries.
I guess if he should fall and hurt himself during the protest he will sue the government for negligence.
Even the bananas in a 3rd rate republic would not want to be associated with the US today.
@Jeff Spender: Becuz HERITAGE!!! FREEDUMB!!! WOLVERINES!!!
@Baud: OK, I was at least half kidding when I made that crack. Then I went to the CNN story, via LGF, and here’s the first sentence:
@Jeff Spender: It makes no fucking sense to see the CSA flag next to the US stars and stripes either. As Charles Johnson keeps saying, over and over, just what the hell is wrong with these people?
One of the things that has been really bothering me about this whole shit show is Peters Corollary on full display.
It’s like a big ass neon sign proclaiming ‘We’re so incompetant and still in power!!!’ and it’s fueled by racist energy and cords of hate.
So much that is wrong with the way we still do business and interact and how little we’ve progressed past outmoded models is laid bare right now. Everything feels backwards and wrong right now.
We have so much talent and progressive intent in this country that is going to waste while the country clubbers and the country-clubbers try their level best to hide their inadequacies at the worlds expense.
And confederate flags at the WH to punctuate this diseaese. Mercy.
Were there Confederate flags at the Lincoln Memorial too? Because that would really take the cake.
@Amir Khalid: Since, according to the CNN story, some of the barriers they carried to the WH were from the Lincoln Memorial, there must have been.
There aren’t enough facepalms in the world for this.
Naah. Gold mine.
@SiubhanDuinne: Oh, and it gets better: The asshole carrying the Confederate flag is also carrying a USMC flag.
This is what’s being billed as the “Million Vet March.” I’d like to see just one actual vet show up at this confab and open a Marine-sized can of whoop-ass on this punk..
Absolutely shocking that when you close down the government….places like memorials that are run by the government will be shut down. Guess that’s too much for their tiny minds.
And when this little protest is over and they leave for a mutual-congratulation party, some poor DC parks ranger, probably unpaid, will have to come out and put them all up again.
