The Top 10 Conservative Idiots, No. 289


The Top 10 Conservative Idiots, No. 289

April 30, 2007
Suffering And Silence Edition

The right-wing seems to be rapidly running out of things to say - if they're not putting their feet in their mouths, they're falling back on stale old ideas and campaign slogans. Laura Bush (1) and George W. Bush (2) seem quite happy in their bubble, while Rudy Giuliani (3) and Mitt Romney (4) appear to be at odds. Elsewhere, Dana Perino (6) is in a huff, Fox News (9) can't tell fact from fiction, and Michelle Malkin (10) goes bonkers. We're pic-heavy this week, so my apologies to you dial-uppers out there. Don't forget the key!



Laura Bush massive ego

The occuaption of Iraq has caused unimaginable suffering - from the scarred and wounded soldiers who return from the battlefield with amputated limbs and serious brain injuries, to the families of troops killed in action, to the Iraqis who are dying by the thousand as bloody civil war takes hold. But last week it was revealed that despite the murder, mayhem, death, and destruction, two people are suffering more than anyone else. Here's Laura Bush talking to Ann Curry on the Today Show:

ANNE CURRY: You know the American people are suffering, watching...

LAURA BUSH: Oh, I know that very much and believe me, no-one suffers more than their president and... and I do when we watch this, and certainly the commander-in-chief who has asked our military to go into harm's way.

Yes folks - when it comes to Iraq, no-one suffers more than George and Laura Bush. Not him:


Or him:


Or them:


Or her:


No, here's where the real suffering lies:





Can't you just smell the suffering?

The interview continued:

ANNE CURRY: What do you think the American public need to know about your husband?

LAURA BUSH: Well I hope they do know the burden of worry that's on his shoulders every single day, for our troops, and, I think they do, I mean, I think if they don't, they're not seeing what the real responsibilities of our president are.

Sure thing. For example, here are some pictures of George W. Bush taken last week at the White House during an event to mark Malaria Awareness Day:



I guess it's the burden of responsibility weighing on his shoulders that's causing him to make that face.

Laura concluded:

ANNE CURRY: It must be hard for you to watch him in this.

LAURA BUSH: Well it's hard, I mean of course, it's absolutely hard.

I'll agree with her there. It is indeed extremely hard to watch George W. Bush.



George W. Bush dumb

I noted last week that Alberto Gonzales had received rave reviews for his recent performance before the Senate Judiciary Committtee. I was joking, of course - he sucked hard. When senators from your own party are telling you that you should resign - to your face, on national television - it's probably not a sign that your career is heading in the right direction.

But at least one person found Alberto Gonzales's testimony to be thoroughly enlightening. George W. Bush said last week that, "The attorney general went up and gave a very candid assessment and answered every question he could possibly answer, in a way that increased my confidence in his ability to do the job."

Yes, you read that right - Gonzales's testimony, where he said some variation of "I can't recall" at least 70 times - has actually increased Bush's confidence in the Attorney General.

Bush continued, saying, "Some senators didn't like his explanation, but he answered as honestly as he could."

He sure did. If he hadn't said "I don't recall" so often, just imagine how many times he would have perjured himself.



Rudy Giuliani fearmongering

It seems that Rudy Giuliani has decided to go after the crucial backwash vote, and figures the best way to do that is to start parroting one of Dick Cheney's old canards. At a campaign stop in New Hampshire last week, Giuliani predicted dire results if a Democrat is elected president in 2008:

If any Republican is elected president - and I think obviously I would be the best at this - we will remain on offense and will anticipate what (the terrorists) will do and try to stop them before they do it. But the question is how long will it take and how many casualties will we have? If we are on defense, we will have more losses and it will go on longer. I listen a little to the Democrats and if one of them gets elected, we are going on defense. We will wave the white flag on Iraq. We will cut back on the Patriot Act, electronic surveillance, interrogation and we will be back to our pre-September 11 attitude of defense. The Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us.

After the speech, Giuliani told the Politico's Roger Simon that "America will be safer with a Republican president."

Apparently Giuliani has learned nothing from the lessons of 2006, and thinks that the American public is still buying into the idea that a vote for the Democrats is a vote for Osama bin Laden. He also appears to have conveniently forgotten that the last time terrorists struck America, we had a Republican president - not to mention a Republican mayor of New York City whose name happened to be Rudy Giuliani.

But obviously I'm forgetting that when Republicans fail to prevent massive terrorists attacks, it's actually proof of great leadership. And remember: since 9/11 we're so much safer, thanks to the warrantless wiretapping of American citizens, FBI infiltration of peace groups, coerced confessions from tortured prisoners who are arrested and held without trial - and let's be fair, turning the entire country of Iraq into a training ground for Al Qaeda was a stroke of genius.

So if you're looking for more of that kind of leadership, by all means vote for Rudy Giuliani. If, however, you're not a raving lunatic, you may want to look elsewhere.



Mitt Romney helping terrorists

I wonder what Rudy Giuliani will make of Mitt Romney's recent comments during an interview with the Associated Press? On the topic of Osama bin Laden, Romney said, "It's not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."

Talking Points Memo noted last week that the "liberal" media has remained remarkably quiet about this comment:

We noted yesterday that such a quote coming from a Democrat would have been broadly covered by the big news organizations and probably would have triggered a major outcry.

Curiously, though, Romney's quote has been met with near-total silence.

A news search shows there hasn't been any coverage of it beyond the original AP write-up yesterday, where the comment itself was buried towards the bottom of the piece.

There's been almost no mention of it whatsoever in any of the places where one would expect such a thing to provoke outrage - that is, in the conservative media and blogosphere. There are no mentions of it on Power Line Blog, Town Hall, InsaPundit, Human Events, or notably the site of Hugh Hewitt, who has written a pro-Romney book.

My guess is they figure it's not worth writing about beacuse by this time next week Romney will have changed his mind.



George W. Bush lying

Good news from Iraq! Sectarian violence is dropping - at least, according to George W. Bush. "There's been some progress. There's been some horrific bombings, of course, but there's also a decline in sectarian violence," said Our Great Leader last week.

Great job, Dubya. The surge must be working after all. Peace and prosperity in Iraq could be just around the corner.

Hang on a minute... what's this?

U.S. officials who say there has been a dramatic drop in sectarian violence in Iraq since President Bush began sending more American troops into Baghdad aren't counting one of the main killers of Iraqi civilians.

Car bombs and other explosive devices have killed thousands of Iraqis in the past three years, but the administration doesn't include them in the casualty counts it has been citing as evidence that the surge of additional U.S. forces is beginning to defuse tensions between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.

President Bush explained why in a television interview on Tuesday. "If the standard of success is no car bombings or suicide bombings, we have just handed those who commit suicide bombings a huge victory," he told TV interviewer Charlie Rose.

How utterly ingenious! Sectarian violence is down, provided that you redefine sectarian violence to exclude the number of people killed by suicide bombs, because if you include the number of people who are killed by suicide bombs, then the terrorists have won. So by simply not reporting the number of people killed by suicide bombs - voila! - no suicide bombs! And a drop in sectarian violence!

George Orwell isn't just rolling in his grave - he's trying to dig his way out so he can throw himself off the nearest cliff.



Dana Perino hypocrisy

Last week, Congress agreed on a bill which would provide the troops with all the funding they need, and also set a timetable for ending the war in Iraq. The bill, which is expected to be vetoed by George W. Bush, is due to arrive on his desk on May 1 - the anniversary of his now-infamous "Mission Accomplished" speech. White House press secretary Dana Perino was furious, calling it a "ridiculous P.R. stunt" and "the height of cynicism."

So let me get this straight... it's a "ridiculous P.R. stunt" to besmirch the memory of this completely genuine and not-at-all-stage-managed occasion?



Ridiculous P.R. stunt my ass. This entire administration has been one long ridiculous P.R. stunt.



Congressional Republicans clinton hating

As the U.S. attorneys scandal continues to rock Washington D.C., Congressional Republicans think they have a plan for getting to the bottom of the problem. According to Raw Story:

Republicans are warning Congressional Democrats - who are investigating the use of private, sometimes GOP-issued e-mail accounts by many Bush Administration staffers that probes can go both ways, a Capitol Hill newspaper reports.

"As Democrats gear up for a broad investigation of Republican e-mail accounts, GOP staff warn that the issue could come back to haunt Democrats, as the minority is looking for ways to extend the issue into Democratic e-mails as well," Paul Singer and Rachel Van Dongen write for Roll Call.

The paper reports that "Brian McNicoll, a spokesman for Oversight and Government Reform Committee Republicans, warned that if Democrats want to broadly investigate the use of party e-mail accounts by administration officials, Republicans could extend this investigation back to the end of the Clinton administration as well."

That's right! Never mind the serious abuses of power that the current administration is engaging in - let's go back in time and re-investigate Bill Clinton!

It's understandable really - I mean, Republicans had a field day during the Great Clinton Cock Hunt of the late '90s - it was a time of finger-wagging and tut-tutting, of pontificating loudly about morals and values, and, oh, won't somebody think of the children? And the public hadn't yet caught on to the fact that the people doing the finger-wagging and tut-tutting were a bunch of crooks and adulterers. Yes, it was a great time to be a Republican.

So, just a few questions, Congressional Republicans:

1. Will re-investigating the Clinton administration help to find out why the Bush administration fired those U.S. attorneys?

2. Do you think that the prosecutors who spent years sniffing Clinton's underpants really overlooked reams of incriminating emails?

3. Given that you're in the minority and have no subpoena power, how exactly are you going to carry out this investigation?

4. Why are you such a bunch of morons?



Earl Adams religious nut

Remember when conservatives used to be against frivolous lawsuits? Times have obviously changed, because it doesn't get much more frivolous than this:

A Bentonville, Ark., man is seeking $20,000 from the city after his two teenage sons found a book on lesbian sex on a public library bookshelf.

He also wants the library director fired.

Er, what? For what?

Earl Adams said his 14- and 16-year-old sons were "greatly disturbed" after finding the book, titled "The Whole Lesbian Sex Book." Adams said the book caused "many sleepless nights in our house."

Adams said the book is "patently offensive and lacks any artistic, literary or scientific value," according to a letter he faxed to Mayor Bob McCaslin. He said the teenagers found it while browsing for material on military academies.

Hmm. So they were "browsing for material on military academies," eh?

I wonder. I wonder if they didn't just happen to find this book and were having a good giggle over it, as teenage boys do, when their batshit crazy dad caught them and started going nuts. "But dad, we were looking for material on military academies and the book just jumped into our hands!" I also wonder if the "many sleepless nights" were caused not by the boys being "greatly disturbed" at the contents of the book, but in fact by their father who kept them up all night praying loudly for the Lord to drive Satan out of their eyeballs. Considering that:

In an e-mail Thursday, Adams said that "God was speaking to my heart that day and helped me find the words that proved successful in removing this book from the shelf."

It probably wasn't God's idea to sue the libary for twenty grand though. After all, greed is one of the seven deadly sins.



Fox News dumb

Want to know just how completely and utterly irrelevant Fox News is these days? Take it away, Think Progress:

On Tuesday, Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends" aired at least eight segments on a purported "news" story that was actually a parody article written by a publication similar to The Onion.

The backstory: Last week in the town of Lewiston, Maine, a group of Somalian Muslim middle school students were the subject of a cruel prank when their peers placed a ham steak next to them in order to personally offend the students. School officials filed a report because the students considered the act to be a hate/bias crime.

This actual story was then spoofed by a parody site called Associated Content, which made up quotes and details, such as the school's intention to "create an anti-ham 'response plan.'"

On Tuesday, Fox & Friends reported these parody quotes and details as actual news. Poking fun at the students, hosts asked whether ham was "a hate crime...or lunch?" and showed screen shots of ham sandwiches, starving Somalians, belching, animal noises, and mock "reenactments" of the incident. Ironically, the hosts assured viewers several times, "We're not making this up!"

You know, I really don't have anything to add to that.



Michelle Malkin batshit crazy

And finally: speaking of completely and utterly irrelevant, here's what poor Michelle Malkin has been reduced to:






If you're confused by these pictures, check out the video and all will become clear. (I'll give you a clue - she's lost her mind.)

The Top 10 is taking a break next week - we'll be back on May 14. See you then!

1. Malkin and the other NeoCon Sycophants
need to be challenged at every opportunity. Kucinich needs all of us to support his push to get Cheney and Bush impeached. We MUST impeach this criminal administration!

2. The best part of the ham sandwich story (IMO) is this
Faux guy on the viewers right: I hope we're not being duped here.

Faux guy on the viewers left: We're not being duped. I looked it up on a few news sites from the area.

Thank goodness he went to newspaper sites from the area.

He must have find the same sites where he found "the huge" story on Obama.

Faux and friends Fair and Balanced. You get the crazy and the bat-s**t crazy.

11. To be fair, Associated Content, on the whole, is not a "parody site."
It publishes both seriously factual and humorous news stories.

The parody ham-sandwich story, however, was in the "Humor" section of the site and clearly labeled as a parody right up front.

Count on "Fox and Fiends" not to pick up on this.

4. One other thing,
it is so easy to post online--on DU and other venues--sitting at your puter in your jammies, drinking your latte. Those among us who log thousands of hours posting comments might consider what it means to be a slacktivist. Barbara Mikkelson (SNOPES) may deny coining the word 'slacktivism,' but she does a hell of a job describing it. Just Google the word. Ask yourself, are you spending all or almost all of your activist energy posting online? Remember what Cindy is now imploring us to do: get outside your comfort zone and be willing to risk arrest. Be willing to risk EVERYTHING, because that is PRECISELY what we stand to lose.

7. Real smart...not.
Getting ourselves arrested only reduces our numbers. Let's put out the doobies, put away our hippie gear, and get back to reality, shall we?

The key to winning this is supporting impeachment efforts. Sitting in a jail cell somewhere isn't going to remove these warmongers from office.

IMPEACH NOW!

25. hmmmm...
I am not advocating that we GET arrested. I am advocating that we be willing to RISK arrest. How are you going to work toward insuring that this criminal administration gets impeached? Posting on DU or in YouTube may make you feel all warm and fuzzy, but it won't get the job done.

Frankly, I'd rather be looking forward to a peaceful retirement, my days filled with gardening and art. Instead, I will be risking arrest as often as I must in order to effect a recovery for our great nation.

We the People MUST stand united and work for the good of our Republic. If you take exception to my assertion that slactivism is not the way to accomplish this end, please look in the mirror.

26. Also...
I don't smoke marijuana, and I am not a former hippy. I AM, however, an advocate for the human race who happens to believe that our democracy is the most effective system of government we've developed thus far in our species' emotional and spiritual evolution.

Please, ask yourself what you can do--something that takes you OUT of your comfort zone and truly challenges you on a personal level--to help get our country back from the Military/Industrial corporatists who continue to amass enormous wealth on the deaths of our youths and the backs of our disenfranchised middle- and lower- classes.

Or, you can just sit there posting away and feel like you are doing something meaningful. Thank God that choice (at least for now) is still yours to make.

I have not done enough to get off my arse and quit just trying to enlighten people online. I've had bad experiences going public/real time with my fervent beliefs, though. And need to overcome this in order to make our country a great one, once again. It's going to take all of us to come together and be very vocal, in real time, and not just online.

12. Never even heard of malkin until now and did a goggle to discover
she's on Faux news. This is exactly how their Faux personalities are on that show, ridiculous, trivial, immature, laughable, embarrassing and ignorant. I'm surprised Faux allows someone who's not white on the show with their contempt for diversity. Republicians are scraping the bottom of the porto potty. They are desperate twits trying to hold on to an unraveling rope. They only appeal to the uneducated followers of hype. What a joke.

As far as laura bush, the only first lady that's done nothing but decorate the White House at xmas. She's everything you tell your daughters NOT to be, a subservient, superficial shallow ornament for a husband. At least that first family will be remembered for being the worst in history. Two more years of this, we'll never make it. America is ruined by this family.

36. She is mostly just another RW mouthpiece
as you probably found she is mostly known for two things

1.Writing a book about how great an idea the Japanese internments were during WWII and how we should do the same thing with Arabs in this post 9/11 world.

Seriously.

2.She was given the job of trying to suggest that John Kerry self-inflicted his wounds in Vietnam. "Wounds from his own weapon" was on the card she was given to read on Mathews's show he actually fired back at her and that talking point went away. She has been fourth string since then with some appearances on O'Reilly ( he wishes) since then.

And Michelle Malkin is a racist tool. She actually advocates for racial profiling - even though she's Filipina. I'm not a violent person, but she deserves a slap with a shoe.

20. Michelle Malkin




Michelle Malkin



Of course, Malkin's theme is that we Democrats are in favor of "surrendering" -- thus the white flags. But, she has yet to define what we are surrendering. We have no defined goals, and Bush's enemy is defined as "terror" and "insurgency". It's like having a war on "glowing platitudes" -- there is no winning, just a lot of noise.

Poor Michelle. She is indeed as Earl suggests: batshit crazy

29. Not to beat a dead horse,
unless that horse happens to be a breathing, talking Alberto Gonzales, then BEAT away! I find this sentence quite alluminating:

When senators from your own party are telling you that you should resign - to your face, on national television -it's probably not a sign that your career is heading in the right direction.


The REAL story of this statement goes much deeper. We are not talking about Hagel or Snowe going after this dumb ass, but SESSIONS and CORNYN! If these two traitors who place Bush's "perogatives" above the good of the country are turning on him, then he really, really, really, really (squared) must be up shit's creek!

Oh, another reason those boys had sleepless nights because of the lesbian book may have been due to a new found compulsion to masterbate.

:yoiks:

You'd think that you would have to really dig up some obscure conservative stupidity at least ONE week out of the year, Earl, but I am now coming to believe that these people are actively pursuing a spot on your list!

30. I'm sure you deserve a break, EarlG
But it's going to be pretty hard to wait two weeks for another top 10 list.

41. I'm thinking...
...that daily would be good. Surely there is enough content. I read merde every day that should make this list, and it's gone from the news in a nanosecond. Why is that?

33. I make
a better cheerleader than Malkin and I'm a guy. Yeesh. As for Laura, she must be drinking, no one in their right mind could ever make such a gross and insensitive statement. She might as well have gone out and peed on the graves at Arlington.

37. Regarding Bush's assessment of Gonzales's testimony:
"The attorney general went up and gave a very candid assessment and answered every question he could possibly answer, in a way that increased my confidence in his ability to do the job."

What a complex sentence! So many words, and not one of them mangled! Imagine how much work it took for him to get there:

"The general, the general of attorneys, spoke confidently in a way which was the best way he could, in which he confidently increased my confidence in his answers and in his abilities, which he has, he has the abilities to do the job, and that's why, candidly, my confidence arose in him today."

39. Holy crap! Can we please officially declare the Republican party irrelevant?
They're all fucking assholes, and if anyone thinks it's the Bush clan who are the ones suffering, they should be declared mentally insane.

Guiliani and Romney are both total douchebags.

42. Sleepless...
Earl Adams said his 14- and 16-year-old sons were "greatly disturbed" after finding the book, titled "The Whole Lesbian Sex Book." Adams said the book caused "many sleepless nights in our house."

"Sleepless"? Is that what the kids call it nowadays?

43. .
Haha! You know what, I don't care.

Michelle Malkin may be 100% mixed nuts, but she's still hot.

Besides, you know what they say about freaks! ...That they're umm... freaks.

Anyway, she could obviously do with a much needed drop in her repression levels.

45. Hot?!
How is someone who is so hate-filled 'hot'? That's like saying 'ooooooh, such a pretty package--look at all the glitter and bows--then opening it up and finding gooey, squishy, stinky dog turds inside. I guess it's all a matter of 'taste' to you, Zero?
