There but for the grace of God……. anyone of us could have had the misfortune to be one of these idiots!
The latest gem from the grossly overfed, grossly undereducated Rush Limbaugh:
“When WOMEN got the right to vote is when it all went downhill. Because that’s when votes started being cast with emotion and uh, maternal instincts that government ought to reflect …Look, I’m joking about the women’s vote. I just got a little frustrated here…”
My guess?…Viagra Rx ran out.
From America’s best argument for culling the population, Ted Nugent:
“I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War. Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.”
Of course this is the guy who said he won’t run for President because:
“I’m afraid there’s not enough logic out there…”
Yeah, that’s the reason Ted.
From the far outreaches of pseudo-religious fanaticism, Bryan Fischer:
“people who have an active, vibrant spiritual life are healthier” and since “Obamacare is all about improving the health of the American people,” we ought to “mandate that you go to church for your own health and we are going to tax the atheists who don’t go to church”
Unfortunately for Bryan and his pals, there’s the little question of mental health… I’m just sayin’.
Then we have the Reverend William Collier of the “Church of God’s Chosen” (Christian Identity Ministries); he doesn’t get why his flier for an “all white Christian” conference is getting so much negative attention. After all, he says,
“The white race is God’s chosen people.”
And one more turn on the religious crazy train via Political Wire:
“Louisiana state Rep. Valarie Hodges (R), quoted by the Livingston Parish News,upon learning that the recently passed voucher program can go to Muslim schools as well as Christian schools.”
“I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school. Unfortunately it will not be limited to the Founders’ religion. We need to insure that it does not open the door to fund radical Islam schools.”
Because bigoted Christian schools are so much better. Those pseudo-Christians, what a hoot.
Stop That “Voter Fraud”
Seems the Republican brainiacs in Mississippi jumped on the voter i.d. bandwagon just a little too quickly. Voters now need a certified birth certificate to get a voter ID; problem is, they need a photo ID to get the birth certificate. Doh!
The Republican Party Does Care About Women
Republican State Sen. Marty Golden (N.Y.) decided the best way to help women find jobs was to hold a “business etiquette event“:
“His website said women would be taught to “sit, stand and walk like a model.”
Golden canceled the event Tuesday after critics said he was out of touch with the lives of working women.”
You don’t say.
From ”Patrick’s Blog” in the The Rutherford Reader, a local Tennessee rag (h/t SquatloRant):
“I would venture to say that the women’s rights movement has done more damage to our society than good. Disagree if you wish, but it’s true. I’m not saying women don’t deserve respect, dignity and an opportunity to have careers and dreams.
How extremely big of you.
I’m merely saying that with the way society has changed, men’s roles have changed drastically and it seems to be that it’s no longer acceptable for a man to work a long hard day and come home to a meal prepared by his wife where the laundry is clean and put away, house cleaned and children kept.”
I don’t know how old this guy is but hopefully he still has a lot of years to evolve.
Be Thankful You Have a Job Even If You Are At the Poverty Level
Jesse Jackson Jr. is evidently attempting to get support for a minimum wage increase to $10.00/hr. A voter asked Rep. Bill Young (R-FL) if he would support it; here’s the exchange:
CONSTITUENT: Hi, I’m (inaudible) how are you? Happy Fourth of July. Jesse Jackson, Jr. is passing a bill around to increase the minimum wage to 10 bucks and hour. Do you support that?
YOUNG: Probably not.
CONSTITUENT: 10 bucks, that would give us a living wage.
YOUNG: How about getting a job?
CONSTITUENT: I do have one.
YOUNG: Well, then why do you want that benefit? Get a job.
Okay, senility checks for elected officials…who’s with me?
