Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week #39

Just Plain Evil Edition

What a bumper week for racism worldwide. Seven out of the ten nominees this week all did something racist or just plain evil. Donald Sterling (8) gained a lot of press, but he's only #8 this week. Which means seven other asshats did some dumb-fuckery that is even worse than his openly ignorant racism. Ever want to just pull the covers over your head and go back to bed. Last week was it. And as always, don't forget the key. Also, there is a lot of caustic language in this article this week. If you don't like it, don't complain about it. Just click off this article and don't read it.

Russian Government #1

Russia today seems all set to restart the Cold War and even seems to want to make it a Hot War. They have basically brought Ukraine to their knees, they are saber rattling with the United States who wants Russia to leave Crimea. . .they are actively putting gay people into prison and, apparently, a few in the their government now advocate raping female journalists. What?

Vladimir Zhironovsky, of the pro-Kremlin Liberal Democratic Party, launched into an animated tirade against RT journalist Stella Dubovitskaya, – who is six months pregnant – after she asked him an innocuous questions about possible sanctions against the pro-Western government of Ukraine, according to the Daily Mail.

Responding to her question, Zhironovsky grabbed two of his male aides, telling them, “When I say, you run to her and violently rape her” before shoving them in her direction and shouting: “Go and kiss her. Grab her.”

Usually, when a government sanctions rape as a political weapon, they do so quietly in order to have the ability to deny knowledge and say it was isolated. But in today's world, fuck it. . .rape the shit out of any woman who dares to open her smart little mouth. Skull fuck her too. And do it in public too. Nothing will happen. She was asking for it. . She was born with two X chromosomes. If she didn't want to be raped, she's have an X and a Y. Serves her ass right.

Notice this wonderful example of humanity, Vladimir Zhironovsky, didn't point to a male journalist and say the same thing. . .that would be homosexual, and gayness is illegal in Russia thanks to the non homo-erotic president for life Vladimir “Pootie-Poo” Putin. Also, maybe Zhironovsky thought trying to rape a male journalist might get his ass kicked, but telling his staff to rape a six month pregnant woman would gain him huge credibility in his circle o'scumbags.

Male and female journalists in attendance were shocked at the outburst with one male journalist asking, “She is pregnant, why are you attacking her?”

To which, Zhironovsky responded “because I can.”

One thing that's bugging the writer of this feature. . .the term Liberal Democratic Party. It's a fucking brand name. Abe Shinzo's party in Japan is also called the LDP, and it's even more right wing than the teabaggers are here. Maybe they think if they called their party the “Conservative Jingoistic Party,” they would get no members. The article even says the LDP of Russia is “far right.”

Also in “Russia,” apparently the act of supporting Ukraine is also ground for arrest for war crimes.

Irma Krat, 29, was held late on Sunday by militants in the city of Slovyansk, said Oleg Veremienko, a lawyer for the online television news site Krat runs. Russian Internet channel Life News posted video of her being escorted by masked men in combat gear and of an activist saying she was under arrest.

The channel showed a woman it said was Krat, her face hidden by a scarf, saying in Ukrainian: "They detained me but they are treating me all right. They will check the reports I've filed and then they'll decide when to let me go."

Maybe the LDP will advocate raping Irma Krat too. “There's the person who thinks Russia should get out of Ukraine. Cornhole her until she sees the error of her thinking.”

So, all people with brains. . .when planning a vacation, remember there are 1000s of place to go that seem to be better than Russia now. Zimbabwe is looking good. And who can forget the fun and sun of Pyongyang. But, if Russia is where you want to go, don't be a woman and don't be gay. And don't say anything that Pootie-Poo might not like. . .don't be black, don't be American. . .yadda, yadda, yadda.

Jan Barta

Who is Jan Barta, I hear you ask. Well, this piece of. . .work is from the Czech Republic. Check out the opening paragraph of the article used to showcase this clown.

"If Gypsies beat up a pub owner, I'll write six articles about it and keep on writing them... I'll say it's a Rom no matter what the cost. If whites beat up a white guy, or if a white guy beats up a Rom... then no," the editor-in-chief of the tabloid news server Extra.cz, Pavel Novotný, says of his practices in the recent Czech documentary film "Tabloid Workers" ("Dělníci bulváru").

Yes, one of Europe's favorite whipping boys, the Roma (known as gypsies) are being subjected to more Eastern European racism. This strikes normal. Jews, Roma. . .the normal scapegoats.

Jan Barta, the owner of news server Extra.cz, which publishes untruthful articles that unleash hatred against Romani people and makes big profits in the process, has run as a Green Party (Strana zelených - SZ) candidate in the past. According to Jan Žáček, the SZ party's press spokesperson, Barta does not interfere with the editorial content of the media outlet he owns.

Yes, a racist asshole runs a racist newspaper propaganda mill for the ignorant masses too stupid to realize they are being played. Like the American right wing. They don't realize the people they support (GOP in Congress, Fatass Limbaugh, Man hands Ann Coulter, Sean the Fuck) are playing them for chumps because they don't really believe what they say and spout. Jan Barta is another example of the racist hustle. And it works! Make money of people's illogical fears and bigotry. Those interested, look up the Camp Grant Massacre and see how Arizonans like Samuel Hughes, William Oury, Sidney DeLong and John Wasson made millions whipping people up into a murderous frenzy in 1871.

News server Romea.cz has written a great deal about media manipulation in the Czech Republic, reproaching media outlets for their unethical and unprofessional conduct when reporting about Romani people. One of our main points is that the media are divorced from reality and are adapting their news reporting to meet the (real or imagined) demands of their listeners, readers and viewers.

The driving force behind this lack of ethical behavior is a desire for the greatest possible profits irrespective of what is essential to the craft and mission of journalism. Our point has now been confirmed by the editor-in-chief of one of the most-read tabloids in the Czech Republic. Novotný has admitted that his publication intentionally emphasizes Romani ethnicity in its reporting. He says the word "Rom", when used in a negative connotation, increases readership and therefore profits.

Emphasis mine.

Thank you Rupert Murdoch. You have made this happen. . .you and that fat slob Roger Ailes. You two fuckers have completely destroyed journalism. And now it is accepted just to publish lies and attack those that expose your lies as partisans with an agenda. Thank you, Roger Ailes. . .thank you Rupert Murdoch. If there is a Hell, you two fuckheads belong there.

Molestation Enabler Forgiveness Freaks

The Top Ten comes back to the States for entry number three by going to State College, Pennsylvania. Remember Jerry Sandusky, that wonderfully successful football coach that won many football games for Penn State University while also molesting as many boys as he could while his boss, Joe Paterno, turned a blind eye to it all because his fame and money was more important than the safety of children.

Well, Paterno resigned in disgrace, died quickly and his hopefully rotting in hell while Sandusky is rotting in prison. . .but that doesn't stop the disgrace from continuing. Apparently, to some in State College, enough time has passed and it's now time to honor Paterno with another statue honoring Joe Paterno.

Tired of waiting, several State College residents say they are moving forward with plans to bring their own statue of the man to downtown State College.

“This is something we can do on our own schedule,” said Ted Sebastianelli, a candidate for the Penn State board of trustees and one of the locals behind an effort to create a new Paterno statue. “We don’t have to wait.”

One thing Penn State University did right was to quickly divorce itself from Paterno and remove all reminders of him But apparently, winning football games are more important than a legacy of being a child molestation enabler.

Imagine. . .years from now, people will look at that statue and say “he was protecting a notorious child molester, but he won Penn State so many games. Fuck children. They are replaceable. Winning football games is more important.”

If Penn State Board of Trustee voters are smart, for advocating another statue, Ted Sebastianelli will get exactly one vote. . .his!

The university’s been tight lipped since then about what became of the statue, and hasn’t said much more than that publicly about how it plans to treat Paterno’s legacy moving forward.

Two years since all of this is enough time. Get over it, victims. Grow up! Next time, don't be so prudish to deny a pervert his perversion. It's your fault it happened. Now let's go watch some football.

If Sebastianelli truly want this statue, let's be honest with its design: Have a standing Paterno with a blind man's cane holding a national championship trophy while Sandusky bends over with his pants around his ankles while a scared boy tries to escape. . .then put it to a backdrop of cheering Penn State fans and dignitaries turning a blind eye and deaf ear because winning the NCAA Championship is more important than a fucking child molester and his enabler boss!

Fuck Joe Paterno! And the writer is a HUGE football fan.

Russian Government #2

The United States has sided completely on the side of Ukraine in this crisis and has threatened Russia with sanctions. Being the strong country they are, Russia decided to puff it's chest and do the same thing, threatening retaliation against the United States for daring to question the AWESOME might of a country that pretty much is run by their organized crime syndicates.

Russia will retaliate for the new sanctions imposed by the United States over the alleged Moscow's involvement into the crisis in Ukraine, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Monday.

"We will respond, of course. There are possibilities for such a response and there is a wide set of measures," Interfax news agency quoted the diplomat as saying.

Those measures include holding their breath until they turn blue in the face, stomping their feet on the ground, whining about still being a “big boy” and asking their buddy China to come to their aid against the big bully Americans because Ukraine is little Russia and Russia needs lebensraum. . .I mean, well, you know.

Ryabkov assured the Russian response would be "painful for Washington," because "no one has a right to speak to Moscow in the language of sanctions."

Really? No one has that right. Okay. Isolate yourselves behind another iron curtain and try to survive. Russia, listen closely. . .you aren't a world leader anymore. That ended in 1991. When communism fell apart.

In 1989, there were over 40 communist countries in the world. . .today, there are only five. . .four are in Asia and one of them (China) is CINO. . .communist-in-name-only. You have no power, Russia. ZERO! Zilch. You're now the tail trying to wag the dog.

Such attempts will hit those who are doing it, he added, calling the new U.S. sanctions "disgusting."

But invading another country and taking parts of it because you need living space is okay. Why Ukraine even deals with Russia surprises me. I mean, Stalin did his best to kill as many Ukranians as he could in Holodomor and now they are trying to take the country piece by piece. It's like Anschluss all over again.

Bundy Supporters


Now that that's out of my system. . .wait. . .HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

You freaktard Bundy supporters support a fucking racist assclown and now you own it! You built it, you own it! Good job. Good vetting, Conservaturds.

Cliven Bundy. . .rancher, right wing hero. . .and now, confirmed sheet wearing racist seems to have over stayed his shelf life by opening his ignorant mouth.

Now that he's won a confrontation with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing his cattle on federal land, Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has time to hold court on everything from abortion to the current state of "the Negro." Bundy made some racially charged comments about government assistancein his daily news conference Saturday, according to a New York Times storypublished Wednesday.

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” the rancher began as he described a "government house" in Las Vegas where he recalled that all the people who sat outside seemed to "have nothing to do." “And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he said, as quoted by the Times. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Whoops. Normally, racists wants to mask their racism in nice language that sounds like they can deny their racist leanings. Now a man who has a massive ego and a God complex. He hits the grand slam of racism, saying blacks were better as slaves, using the word negro and channeling George Fitzhugh and “Cannibals All.”

I wonder how his supporters think about this hero now.

[div class="excerpt" style="background-color:#F4E0E0; border:1px solid #E8C0C0; box-shadow:-1px -1px 3px #C66666 inset; border-radius:0.6em; margin:0.5385em 0em 0em 0.5385em;"NEVADA SENATOR DEAN HELLER

What he said then: Last week, during a debate with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Heller said that he thought the Bundy ranchers were patriots. “What Sen. Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots,” Heller said. He added that he wanted hearings to figure out "who's accountable for this."

What he's saying now: Chandler Smith, a spokesman for Heller, said the congressman “completely disagrees with Mr. Bundy’s appalling and racist statements, and condemns them in the most strenuous way.”

I see. . .freeloading and flipping off the American government = good. Openly insulting people you don’t care about because they might vote for you = bad. Hypocrite!

Time for one of the lamest changes of position. . .ever!

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott
What he said then: Abbott didn't come out in defense of Bundy so much as his ideas — he used the media attention surrounding the Bundy stand off to highlight federal land claims in his home state. "I am deeply concerned about the notion that the Bureau of Land Management believes the federal government has the authority to swoop in and take land that has been owned and cultivated by Texas landowners for generations," Abbott wrote in a letter to the BLM this week. The letter echoed Bundy's language, as he argued his family has also owned the land for generations.

What he's saying now: Laura Bean, Abbott's spokeswoman, told the Times that the letter “was regarding a dispute in Texas and is in no way related to the dispute in Nevada.”

Sure. . .he would have said this shit in a letter if it wasn’t national news. Cowardly hypocrite.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul
What he said then: Like Abbott, Paul focused more on the policy issue. "There is a legitimate constitutional question here about whether the state should be in charge of endangered species or whether the federal government should be," Paul told Fox News earlier this week. "But I don't think name calling is going to calm this down," he added, referring to Reid's "domestic terrorists" remark.

What he's saying now: Nothing. Paul's team said he was unavailable for comment. (Update 9:55 am: “His remarks on race are offensive and I wholeheartedly disagree with him,” Paul said in a statement.)

Can’t appear too racist, Paul. You have to deal with Ted Cruz to get the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. Opportunistic hypocrite!

Probably the worst response was Cousin Ruckus himself Herman Cain (since Allen West is Uncle Ruckus).

What he said then: Cain sympathized with Bundy, because the government was trying to intimidate him. "The complicated nature of the law is a huge problem here, as it is when we deal with things like tax law," Cain wrote on his website last week. "That’s why I have sympathy for Mr. Bundy. His issue with the BLM reminds me of one I had 20 years ago with the IRS."

What he's saying now: Nothing.

I guess being told he is better off being a slave doesn’t sit well with old Hermie! Stupid hypocrite.

And Cliven Bundy goes to the dustbin of history.

Klu Klux Klan

Back to Pennsylvania. The SPLC says there are at least 40 racist groups within Pennsylvania. The KKK is one of them. But this isn’t your grandfather’s KKK. This is the KKK of the 2014, the ones who care about their neighborhoods. A kinder, gentler racist organization. And apparently, they started a neighborhood watch program. And the stupid can be smelled 1,000 miles away.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, 41 hate groups actively operate in Pennsylvania. In York County, an affiliate of the KKK and longtime nemesis of the SPLC has decided to “give back” to its community: by starting a neighborhood watch group.

“A local chapter of the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan launched a neighborhood watch,” writes Eric Veronikis for PennLive.com.

Ummm. . .this doesn’t have problems written all over it.

“Look, black person! SHOOT!!!”



“There’s a man who looks effeminate. Get him! Beat the fag out of him and get him out of our neighborhood.”

Nah, that would never happen. It’s the Klan.

Veronikis reports that, in response to a recent spate of burglaries in rural Fairview Township outside of York, the KKK-affiliate distributed fliers saying, “Neighborhood Watch. You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake.”

Wow! That makes me want to hold my pillow tighter. Getting robbed or knowing the Klan is awake. Holy jumping fucking shitballs, Batman!

Local police authorities have officially acknowledged the existence of the fliers with a figurative exasperated sigh and roll of the eyes at the sheer bat-shitted-ness of the group’s idea.

What could go wrong? Armed, narrow minded, racist thugs patrolling a neighborhood with large egos, small dicks and a God complex. Someone in Florida did the same thing in a neighborhood watch program and murdered a 17 year old kid armed with a hoodie, Iced Tea and Skittles in cold blood.

We can trust the Klan. Now, if you excuse me, this asp, cobra and yellow mamba snake have all promised that if I bother them, they won’t bite me. I can trust. . .fuck, the asp bit me and I. . .(falls over passed out).

Neel Kashkari

The GOP in California is the gift to Democrats that keeps on giving. Their nominees for the race for the GOP nomination for governor aren’t at the bottom of the barrel. Back in Idiots #35, the Top Ten mentioned another potential Jerry Brown runner up in Glenn Champ (#2). This week, we bring you the latest asshat. . .Neel Kashkari.

More racism from the GOP. Apparently, affirmative action policies to increase under-represented groups in university are worthless because, according to Kashkari, there are too many Asians as Berkeley. WTF!?!?!

The recent legislative effort to restore affirmative action in public university admissions "should've been called the 'There are too many Asians at Berkeley' bill," Republican candidate for governor Neel Kashkari told several hundred Cal students Wednesday.

Democrats "will never come out and say to you there are too many Asians at Berkeley, but that's what the bill was all about," Kashkari said of Senate Constitutional Amendment 5, recently shelved by Sacramento lawmakers after an outcry from many Chinese-American parents, who fear affirmative action would make it harder for their children to get into top schools like UC Berkeley and UCLA.

I am sure he will come out with “UC-Irvine is the University of Chinese Immigrants” and “UC-Davis is the University of Chinese Doctors” crack soon. Damn Asians! How dare you want to be put into protected class? You never had racism against you. After all, Chinese people have quotas. . .the Chinese Exclusion Act, Koreans targetted for opening stores in black neighbors. . .All Asians are good at math. . .ugh! This motherfucker is Indo-American. His fucking heritage is South Asian from the Indian subcontinent. What a self-hating Uncle Tom (or whatever the Indian equal to Uncle Tom).

Hypocrite! Charlatan. Racist! Scumbag!

His education policy, outside of killing affirmative action, is the worst of pablum one can burp and vomit up.

His K-12 plan includes granting even more local control -- not just by districts but also by individual schools -- of state funding while eliminating most of the state Education Code so local principals, teachers and parents can use the money as they see fit. He also wants charter schools to have the same level of funding and facilities as traditional schools, and he would eliminate a cap that limits California to 100 new charter schools per year.

For higher education, Kashkari wants to tie state funding to campuses' success rates -- as measured by credits accumulated, students retained, courses completed and degrees awarded -- while putting more UC and CSU courses online and offering free tuition to science, technology, engineering and math students in exchange for a cut of their future earnings.

So this is Neel Kashkari, AKA, man with a governor’s campaign that is DOA before it is DOA. Enjoy losing, asshole.

Donald Sterling

When you own an NBA team, being a racist might not be good for business. After all, you have twelve players and more than 70% of the NBA’s players are black. So, if you are a racist, you might want to shut up and be a racist in private.

Donald Sterling, owner of the LA Clippers (LOS ANGELES????), decided because he is in the 1% he can be openly racist. And it was all caught on tape. Here are some choice clips.

-- "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you’re associating with black people. Do you have to?" (3:30)

-- "You can sleep with . You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games." (5:15)

-- "I’m just saying, in your lousy f******* Instagrams, you don’t have to have yourself with, walking with black people." (7:45)

-- "...Don't put him on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me. And don't bring him to my games."(9:13)

Ummm. . .wow! What a fucking shithead! There is no other way to describe him. You own an NBA team. Most players, past players. . .even one of the owners is black (and he is considered the greatest player EVER) and you don’t want them to come to your games. Does that include your players? The other players? TV announcers? Journalists? Corporate Sponsors?

Apparently, black people aren’t the only subhumans Sterling doesn’t like. He hates other people as well.

In the new, 15-minute tape released Sunday by the U.S. website Deadspin, Sterling, 80, is heard telling Stiviano, 38, "You think I'm a racist …" which Stiviano denies. He insists that that's what she thinks, that he has an "evil heart," to which she replies, "I don't think so. I think you have an amazing heart, honey, I think the people around you have poison mind, and have a way of thinking."

At that point Sterling - born to American Jewish immigrant parents as Donald Tokowitz – seemingly tries to defend his views by putting them in an international context, singling out how blacks are treated in Israel.

Sterling: "It's the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs."

Stiviano: "So you have to treat them like that too?"

Sterling: "The white Jews, there's white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?"

Stiviano: "Are are the black Jews less than the white Jews?"

Sterling: "A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent."

Stiviano: "And is that right?"

Sterling: "It isn't a question – we don't evaluate what's right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture."

So, Jews are bad too. Apparently racism is poison, because advertisers are dropping The Clippers in record time.

Advertisers are backing away from the Los Angeles Clippers after racist comments attributed to the NBA team's owner.

Mercedes-Benz USA said Monday its dealerships are ending their sponsorship of the Clippers in the wake of comments allegedly made by the team's owner, Donald Sterling. Used car dealership chain CarMax, airline Virgin America, and the Chumash Casino Resort are doing the same.

Four other sponsors, Kia Motors America, energy drink maker Red Bull, hardwood flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators and Yokohama Tire, said they are suspending their advertising and sponsorship activities with the team. Yet another sponsor, insurer State Farm, said it "will be taking a pause in our relationship with the organization."

Kia. . .well, they are Korean, so fuck them. Yokohama too. The others are probably run by “n-bomb lovers” or “Jews,” so the Clippers and Donald Sterling don’t need them either!

There is more fallout. Apparently, Mark Jackson, former player and coach of the Golden State Warriors, thinks fans should boycott the games.

"If it was me, I wouldn't come to the game," Jackson said Monday. "I believe as fans, the loudest statement they could make as far as fans is to not show up to the game."

Jackson was quick to point out that his advice doesn't apply just to Clippers supporters but to Warriors fans as well.

"As an African-American man that's a fan of the game of basketball and knows its history and knows what's right and what's wrong, I would not come to the game tomorrow, whether I was a Clipper fan or a Warrior fan," he said.

Eh. . .who cares? He’s black. Donald Sterling doesn’t want him at the games either. Former player and NBA executive Doc Rivers believe Sterling is a racist too. But he’s black too, so Sterling can tell the “n-bomb” to go fuck himself.

Sacramento mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson wants NBA commish Adam Silver to bring down the maximum punishment on Sterling, on behalf of the NBA Players’ Association.

Johnson met with NBA commissioner Adam Silver on Sunday before they attended Game 4 of the Clippers' first-round series against the Golden State Warriors. During the meeting, Johnson laid out what the players felt were key objectives in terms of the league's dealings with Sterling.

"The players wanted to ensure that Mr. Sterling does not attend any games for the Clippers or any other team for the duration of the playoffs," Johnson said. "We're confident that the commissioner understood that this is an enormous distraction for everyone, and we want the focus to really be on the games and what's taking place on the court, and he certainly understood that."

But Kevin Johnson is black too, so he’s banned from Clippers’ games too.

But apparently, the NBA doesn’t seem to notice shit until it’s in the media. Yahoo News has a whole list of crap this motherfucker has said and done the past. To believe someone would think and believe this shit in 2014 American is amazing. We haven’t progressed as much in race relations as we have thought.

Here is the one that will make you throw up in your mouth a little. Apparently, women are toys and commodities to this troglodyte.

The sad thing is this man is disgusting as all get-out. . .and yet some young girl is this thing’s girlfriend. Oh, I forgot. . .his girlfriend is his girlfriend because Sterling has no interest in his wife anymore.

Sterling was at Game 3 on Thursday night in Oakland, Calif., and was planning to be at Game 4 on Sunday before speaking with the league and agreeing not to attend as it investigated his comments. Sterling's wife, Rochelle, however, was at Sunday's game and sat courtside across from the Clippers' bench in their 118-97 loss.

You know, for someone who doesn’t like non-white people, his trophy girlfriend doesn’t look white. She looks awfully non-white. Apparently, that’s okay. As long as the racist 1/4 inch killer gets played with, you can be as non-white as possible. But don’t be a non-white man! Fuck you people! The Clippers don’t want you! Or your money. . .and if you’re an NBA player, they don’t want your talent either.


When you’re the NYPD, you want as much good pub as you can get. After all, you’re organization has been documented as racist profilers and using brutal tactics on everyone form bike riders to joggers to OWS protesters.

So, the NYPD wanted people to submit through hashtag photos that show the good things NYPD has done for the public but submitting selfies with the NYPD. Bad idea! Internet has this habit of allowing people to submit anything.

The people in NY responded to the NYPD’s request with a slew of good photos.

This week’s social-media fail goes to the New York Police Department, where someone dreamed up a would-be public-relations campaign and asked Twitter users to submit photos of themselves with police officers.

If you’re a sentient being who isn’t drinking whatever is in the water over at the N.Y.P.D., you know where this is going: scores of Twitter users have sent in photos of the department’s use of force, against protesters, journalists, and even dogs.

How did they not see this coming? Considering their reputation and track record, whoever runs the Twitter account should've known what they were opening themselves up to: an aggregate of concentrated failure. Pandora's box came flying open for all of the world to see, and people are taking the carnage and running with it like DeSean Jackson against the Giants.

The Twitter account has been dormant for over an hour, meaning they're probably trying to figure out how to deal with this. For the moment, silence seems to be the best option.

Let’s see a few of these photos.

Here’s a good NYPD officer showing someone the latest angry fighting techniques. I think it’s known as “assault and battery while punching the fuck out of you” style.

Who can forget the “choke someone on the ground with your knee” technique? Look at that smile on the man’s face. He loves his police protection.

Here is a fun photo of wonderful girl getting her hair playful tugged on while handcuffed. Look at the officer’s playful smile and the look of enjoyment by the woman.

I entitled this one “three friendly officers feeling up a blonde girl.”

Finally, how many officers does it take to manhandle one small, handcuffed woman? Apparently, six while her bra is falling off and about to flash the entire city her boobs].

Epic fail, NYPD.

Dane Eagle and Vance McAllister

And finally, a little light ending to this week’s craptacular list. First, we go down to Florida. Let’s look at what Republican Florida state Representative Dane Eagle said once:

"We need to be as elected officials held to a higher standard," said Florida state Rep. Dane Eagle (R-Cape Coral) last month after sponsoring a bill that would require legislators to submit to drug testing.

Yes, I think we all can agree. Elected people should be held to a much higher standard. Those that lie, cheat, betray their wives, do drugs, drink and drive, etc. . .should be publicly flogged to set an example. Bring back the stocks and let them all be shamed in public.

If you know where I am going with this, you’re a little ahead of me. So, here you go. Apparently, Dane Eagle likes to put a few back and drive while intoxicated.

Just before 2 a.m. Monday morning, Eagle was arrested in Tallahassee on suspicion of DUI. Police first spotted him pulling out of a Taco Bell in his black SUV before he narrowly avoided hitting a median, then stopped in an intersection, veered into a curb and ran a traffic light, according to arrest documents.

An arresting officer wrote that Eagle smelled like alcohol, had "bloodshot, watery, and glassy eyes," and swayed while outside his vehicle, but denied drinking any alcoholic beverages. He allegedly claimed the smell of booze had come from friends who had ridden in his car after being at a bar, and refused to take a field sobriety test or submit to a breath test, according to police.

Not surprised at all. Even less surprised that he lawyered up fast and didn’t accept responsibility for his illegal actions or his arrest.

EAGLE: I was arrested in Tallahassee and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. While there are some decisions that I would have made differently, I do not believe there is a complete and accurate picture of the events. Under advice of my legal counsel, I cannot discuss all the details right now, but I look forward to publically (sic) sharing the entire story at an appropriate time. Until then, I humbly ask for everyone's patience. I know that I am accountable for my actions, and I look forward to communicating with my constituents in the near future on this matter.

So much for holding elected officials to a higher standard.

Down in Louisiana, US Congressman Vance McAllister was caught sucking face with someone not his wife. First he played “I need to ask God for forgiveness.” When that bullshit failed, he realized McAllister is not the same last name as Vitter and decided to not seek re-election in 2014.

Louisiana GOP Rep. Vance McAllister, caught on camera kissing a married female aide, said Monday he's failed his family, let down his district and doesn't intend to run for re-election this fall.

In a statement, McAllister apologized for conduct he called a "personal failure," and said he spent the Easter congressional recess reconciling with his family.

In a related story, his wife released a statement saying she doesn’t intend to run for the position of “still married woman to a hypocritical scumbag” this fall.

See you next week!

I have never seen so many GOP talking points destroyed so quickly.

The Haves v. The Don't Have Yets

If we can kill the "if you kid can read, thank a teacher. if your kid can't, thank a teacher's union" bullshit, we'll be really progressing.

Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week #38

Give Me That Old Time Religion Edition

Fundies dominate the Top Ten this week. From a murderer (1), to his supporter (2); Pogrom lovers (3) and Christain Fundies in Oklahoma (8), this week is proof that religion has become one of the most insidious mass brainwashing on Earth today. Even North Korea (10) has its religion and God, an ugly, fat sociopath with a lousy haircut. And as always, don't forget the key. At the end, the writer will speak briefly on the passing of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter.

Frazier Glenn Miller

It happened. Jewish organizations in Kansas City went on alert last week as some nut decided to act out his manhood fantasy and attack and kill Jewish people in the name of some paranoid conspiracy theory. And in time for Passover too. So, security went up big time at Jewish organizations around KCMO and the openness and charity of Passover got killed as well. Way to go, Fraizer Glenn Miller. . .you did what Pharaoh couldn't do.

Miller, a known anti-Semite and a right wing political fundamentalist, decided to extend his ¼ inch killer, lift up a gun and went on a murder spree. This has been building for some time now. Honestly with all the tea party paranoia, the Bundy Ranch clowns, Alex Jones conspiracy nuts and Sean Hannity purposely stirring the shit, someone was eventually going to get killed.

Miller has had a long history of this crap. Let's look at something pricko wrote about Jews.

After subsequently forming another Klan group, the White Patriot Party, he was found in criminal contempt and sentenced to six months in prison for violating the court settlement. He went underground while his conviction was under appeal but was caught by the FBI with a weapons cache in Missouri. He served three years in federal prison after being indicted on weapons charges and for plotting robberies and the assassination of SPLC founder Morris Dees. As part of a plea bargain, Miller testified against other Klan leaders in a 1988 sedition trial.

Miller is a raging anti-Semite who has posted more than 12,000 times on Vanguard News Network (VNN), whose slogan is “No Jews, Just Right.” VNN founder Alex Linder has openly advocated “exterminating” Jews since December 2009. Miller, a close partner to Linder, has called Jews “swarthy, hairy, bow-legged, beady-eyed, parasitic midgets.” Miller is also one of VNN’s largest donors and he printed and distributed thousands of copies of VNN’s newsletter, The Aryan Alternative.

So, he posts on a nice little website that is Stormfront and National Alliance combined. And apparently, posters at the this website have had legal problems in the past.

This isn’t the first time a VNN user has been arrested for violence. On January 17, 2011, less than 12 hours after posting on VNN, Kevin William Harpham placed an improvised explosive device concealed in a backpack along a Martin Luther King parade route in Spokane Washington. The lead sinkers in the radio-detonated IED were coated with Warfarin rat poison, evidently intended to increase bleeding. Had the device functioned, dozens of men, women and children would have been killed or injured. Harpham also distributed The Aryan Alternative.

Nice group of people. Just a wonder, let's have Sunday dinner group of troglodytes that website attracts.

Before the Top Ten puts Miller into the dustbin of history, let's look at the actions of this asshole after he was arrested.

he video, which was taken by Kansas City news station KMBC, shows the suspected gunman after he was taken into custody in the parking lot of an elementary school near the scene of the attacks at the Jewish Community Center and the Village Shalom assisted living center.

From the back of the police cruiser, Cross shouted what sounded like "Heil Hitler!"

Enjoy Hell, douchebag. At least you have no allies or friends that can back you up and support you or your views. No one is that openly ignorant in America. . .

Dan Clevenger

Well, maybe the Top Ten spoke too soon. Meet Dan Clevenger, mayor or Marionville, Missouri and open Frazier Glenn Miller supporter. That needs to be repeated. Dan Clevenger, an elected official that goes relies on votes to get and keep his job, supports a murdering anti-Semitic bigot.

While you pick up your bottom jaw from the ground, let's look at some of this moron's bullcrap.

In an interview with KSPR, Clevenger said Cross -- who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Miller -- was "ery fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him."

"He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people, you know, he respected his elders greatly. As long as they were the same color as him," Clevenger said.

"Kind of agreed with him on some things but, I don't like to express that too much," Clevenger told KSPR.

I'm sure Miller loves his mother and his dog too. I'm also sure he loves apple pie too. Doesn't change the fact that he killed people due to racial and religious intolerance. And the fact that you stated you “kind of agreed with him on some things” shows that you are unfit to run to be an elected speed bump and that fact you continued by saying “I don't like to express that too much” shows you are a weak, wimpy, closeted bigot who doesn't even have the courage of their own conviction. You need to write a resignation later as soon as possible.

In the past, Clevenger was more in your face with his racism. I guess being mayor means you need to hide it more.

Nearly a decade ago, Clevenger wrote a letter to the editor of the Aurora Advertiser.

"I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings," wrote Clevenger. "The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State's workforce."

The letter continued.

"Made a few Jews rich by killin' us off."

He also spoke of the "Jew-run government backed banking industry turned the U.S into the world's largest debtor nation."

Now that you have that resignation letter written, Danny. . .sign it, effective immediately and then disappear from public life forever. However, it appears Clevenger is in hot water and may be removed from office. Because nothing screams “come to our town and spend money here” more than a Nazi loving mayor.

Russian Pogrom Advocates

Frazier Miller has more allies. All he has to do is go to that Godless, former communist country of Russia and enjoy life there. See, the Russians, under Vladimir Putin (Conservative from Hell), have decided to attempt a annex of parts of Ukraine, and threaten anyone that wants to help Ukraine keep its borders.

So, in a part of Ukraine that the Russians and Russian supporters have taken over, namely the city of Donetsk , Jews were told they have to "register" with the Ukrainians who are trying to make the city become part of Russia. Yes. . .get your papers, Jews! Get those papers, Jews!

Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city's Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee "or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated," reported Ynet News, Israel's largest news website.

Wow. This does sound vaguely familiar if one knows history. Listing property and paying a registration fee. . .sounds like Nazi Germany. Revoking citizenship, deportation and asset confiscation. . .this sounds like the Inquisition. Russian anti-semitism has reared its ugly head yet again.

So, Miller would love Russia now. They hate Jews as much as he does. I wonder if Dan Clevenger will stand up and say “kind of agreed with the Russians on some things, but now that it's out in the open, them Jews deserve it.”

Passover 2014 started great for Jews this year.

Marsha Blackburn

Coming back to the United States the Top Ten goes down to the South (oh no, here comes a jury alert because a southerner won't like that the Top Ten is mentioning someone from the south) to bring back a perennial black mark on the United States, Marsha Blackburn.

The Tennessee Twit (no, I used the correct word. There will be no sexism from the writer on the Top Ten) burped out another turd of wisdom last week, this time about her fellow women

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asserted over the weekend that the Republican Party was the party of "women's equality" days after Senate Republicans blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act.

In a party line Senate vote last week, Republicans refused to allow debate on a bill that would have require employers prove that women were not being discriminated against.

So, the Republicans are the party of women's equality by working to block a fair pay law to allow women the same pay for the same work as men and they are all for woman's equality? On what planet? In what dimension? In what realm of consciousness?

CBS host Bob Schieffer on Sunday asked Blackburn if the vote would hurt Republicans with women voters in the midterm elections.

"I find this war on women rhetoric almost silly," Blackburn insisted.

We find your party's chances to keep power in the House after election day almost silly too. How can any woman vote for a party that wants to keep them as second class citizens with second class pay? Oh yeah. . .Stockholm Syndrome. Explains it all.

Jeff Sessions ‘

Going back to the South on the list (oh no, another jury notification coming) brings us to the great state of Alabama and their senior senator, a one named Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, or as the Top Ten will call him from now on. . .Opie Dopey. I mean, look at his photo. Doesn’t it just scream “duh!”

So, Opie Dopey is on the Environment and Public Works committee in the Senate, which deals with such things as environment and infrastructure, two things Republicans know shit about and care about even less. The EPW is now looking at Janet McCabe, President Obama’s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency’s Air and Radiation office. This is not a controversial office and is not really grounds for political grandstanding.

Wait, these are Republicans. Everything is grounds for political grandstanding. When Ms. McCabe was hauled in front of this committee, Jeff Sessions decided to make political hay over climate change. Not this shit again!

At a confirmation hearing for Janet McCabe, President Obama’s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency’s Air and Radiation office, Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions said he could not support her because of her views on climate change.

“If you continue to insist that we’ve had more hurricanes in the last century and that they’ve increased as a result of global warming — climate change — I don’t see how I can support your nomination,” Sessions said.

Listen, asshole. The Great Lakes are still 37% covered with ice. Some places are already experiencing record high temperatures while others are freezing when they shouldn’t. Don’t believe me. . .look at this and . Where did this prick get education? Alabama Univeristy of Dumb? Alabama Jackass University? Dipshit U?

Sessions, who serves on the Environment and Public Works Committee, has long denied the existence of man-made climate change.

That’s fine. The Top Ten has long denied that Jeff Sessions has a functioning brain.

After the hearing, he jumped in his SUV to go blow the CEO’s of BP while apologizing that the Gulf of Mexico caused them to lose profits. Then he has wild and unwanted sex with a pigmy owl, screaming “screw mother Earth” while the owl laughed at the size of his manhood.

Tim Scott

Ugh, back to the South again (southerners on DU must be having seizures now and this should get the Top Ten another jury notice for region bashing). In South Carolina, professional stooge and Dudley Dickerson impersonator “Uncle” Tim Scott has decided to come out of his hidey hole, open his mouth and put an industrial sized foot into it.

Apparently, “Uncle” Tim has decided that he will vote against HHS Secretary nominee Sylvia Matthews Burwell because he hates the ACA.




That’s a bit confusing. Could you explain, Uncly Tim. . .and speak slowly. We need to try to understand this new Republican “logic.”

Scott said on "Fox News Sunday" that he wouldn't go as far as to vote against Burwell because he does not like the health care law, but he said that senators need to better understand Burwell's loyalties and agenda.

Loyalties. Gotcha! Like the Republican presidential wanna-bes going out to Vegas to kiss the feet and suck the dick of Sheldon Adelson. . .and will probably go out to Kansas to give Charles and David Koch a reach around following by a Koch family circle jerk? Those kind of loyalties?

As for an agenda. . .similar to Paul Ryan’s agenda of fucking the middle class and poor so the wealthy can concentrate more wealth? We are beginning to understand. Please proceed, “Senator.”

SCOTT: The questions that we have to get to, however, is whether or not Director Burwell will be serving for the President of the United states, with his agenda as the primary objective, or will she get into the details of the numbers, and she’s honestly strong on the numbers, and figure out whether seven million people actually signed up and paid, or whether, as other independent sources suggest, that we’ve had fewer than 5 million signed up and paid, as well as looking at the fact that when you have 6 million cancellations, and 7 million signed up by the President’s suggestions, that what is the actual number of those who signed up and paid.

Wow, Mr. Run-on Sentence. Those are alot of works. Non-sequitirs and full of sounds and syllables, meaning nothing. But they sound pretty. The Top Ten would normally try to go into what Republicans say, but this is so monumentally stupid that the writer’s brains leaked out of his head while he read this drivel.

So, welcome to the Top Ten, Timmy. . .you prove that anyone can be elected, even a completely brainless, partisan a-hole like you. Nothing like a electing a black man president that turns an entire political party into drooling, raving, ranting maniacs.

BTW, in the comments, please caption this picture. The only one I could come up with was “Who you be talking to, Willis?”

BTW, for those who don’t know who Dudley Dickerson is, watch the Three Stooges short “A Plumbing We Will Go.”

Dudley Dickerson

Bob Marshall

Back to the South (shit, I’m going to get banned with all these jury alerts) for one last time. Going to the mid-south this time, not the deep south to the state of Virginia. Virginia has become one of the most schizophrenic states when it comes to people running for office. Terry McAlliffe, the “Cooch.” Northern Virginia liberals, southern Virginia conservatives. It really is a purple state. Sadly, their Republicans are a fucking embarrassment.

The newest installment of Republican sleaze is Bob Marshall, who apparently is running for the open seat in CD-10 this year. He is an interesting person. Let’s look at some of his and his reactions to the fallout.

Bob Marshall, who is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Frank Wolf (R- VA10), explained in an interview with the Boston Globe in 1989 that he wouldn’t make exceptions for abortions, even in the case of rape and incest, stating: “What if incest is voluntary? Sometimes it is.”

Marshall, a senior Republican member of the Virginia General Assembly, has a history of making colorful statements that may come back to haunt him in the upcoming election, but he insists they are not gaffes.

“I don’t care. I mean, if I say something in public, I say it in public,” Mr. Marshall said Thursday.

Voluntary? Incest? It’s voluntary? “Come on, parent. . .give it to my 12 year old body. I know you want some sugar and I’m ready for you.” I’m sorry, I just threw up a little in my mouth.

I hope it doesn’t get any worse.

Speaking to a pro-life group last year, Marshall discussed Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s majority opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage, adding at the end: “For all I know, Kennedy’s a homosexual.”

“You can’t be doing some of these things without this kind of conclusion,” he added.

Defending his comment, he recently said, “Clearly, some of the people who are making these decisions must be rationalizing their own bad behavior.”

Because anyone that supports equality is a fag, right? You wear your sheets buddy. Rationalize that behavior, you arrogant ass.

In 2010, Marshall called for an end to state funding for Planned Parenthood, and suggested that women who have abortions are more likely to face “vengeance” from “nature” in the form of children being born with developmental disabilities.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion who have handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the firstborn of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” Marshall said.

Faced with criticism over those remarks, Marshall partially walked back the statement.

“No one who knows me or my record would imagine that I believe or intended to communicate such an offensive notion,” he explained afterward. “I have devoted a generation of work to defending disabled and unwanted children and have always maintained that they are special blessings to their parents.

Abortion causes defects. According to Glenn Beck, it’s HITLER! According to Alex Jones, it’s the spacemen that talk to him through his tin foil hat. And according to Rush Limbaugh, it’s the oxycotin that make his dick limps so liberals want abortions on demand, whatever the fuck that means. Can Bob Marshall get any worse?

A staunch opponent of same-sex marriage, he co-sponsored the Marshall-Newman Amendment that voters approved in 2006 banning same-sex marriage in Virginia. A federal judge this year ruled it unconstitutional.

Marshall has repeatedly introduced “personhood” bills to secure civil and legal rights for the unborn from the moment of conception.

So, let’s recap:

01: Stupid
02: Homophobic
03: Misogynistic
04: Anti-choice
05: Anti-child
06: Pro-incest
07: Pro-asshole
08: Arrogant
09: Hubris filled
10: Obtuse

Perfect for the Republican Party to nominate because staunch wing nutters will love him.

You realize this asshole will probably win the nomination and be a representative in Congress because his district has gone to the Republican every election for the last 17 cycles by at least 15%. Maybe the district has changed. . .but what won’t change is this asshole will already have at least 35% of the vote in his pocket. So, those that vote for him support incest. And Republicans, the part of family values, will have no problems with that.

Oklahoma Government

The Sooner State has brought us such assholes as James Inhofe, Tom Coburn, Mary Fallin (what a apropos surname), Toby Keith and the country music assholes and countless dipshits in the Oklahoma state legislature.

This week, we look at three pieces of shit that have come out of Oklahoma. First, Governor Mary Failure signed one of the most fuck the poor and the young bills in the history of humanity, then spouted wingnut talking points to defend her shitty decision.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R) signed a bill Monday prohibiting cities across the state from establishing mandatory minimum wage and employee benefits, including vacation or sick leave days.

Advocates of the new law contend that efforts to increase the minimum wage across various municipalities could potentially harm local business communities.

"This bill provides a level playing field for all municipalities in Oklahoma," state Rep. Randy Grau (R), a backer of the bill’s House version, said on Monday, according to the Associated Press. "An artificial raise in the minimum wage could derail local economies in a matter of months. This is a fair measure for consumers, workers and small business owners."

Yes, because government needs to be small and let the market decide itself, unless the business interests don’t like it, then it’s big government and time to stick a big dick up the ass of powerless people.

So how did Mary Failure defend this completely and utterly defenseless act? But being a completely obtuse asshat while spouting off talking points like a brain dead parrot.

Fallin defended her support for banning a minimum wage hike as an effort to protect consumers in a press release Monday, noting that "most minimum-wage workers are young, single people working part-time or entry-level jobs."

So, because, using her logic, young, single part time works and entry level jobs don’t deserve to eat AND live in a house? Nice logic (I want to use the b-word, but I don’t want to offend anyone, but it’s getting harder and harder to call people like this the b-word) and completely stupid. Hey, Oklahoma, how does it feel to be one of the most conservative states in the country? Getting tired of being fucked over by Republicans?

Apparently not, because next, Mary Failure decided to sign a law charging fees for installing renewable energy sources on their property. Way to pander to the fossil fuel industry.

On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard.

83-5 the voted without debate. Wow! Where are the Democrats or the people who think charging people for being environmentally responsible is bullshit? There were five of them. Out of 88. Oklahoma loves being fucked by Republicans.

Finally, an Oklahoma school district has decided to include, in its education system, something Hobby Lobby wants: A bible curriculum. Oh shit, not this crap again.

(Hobby Lobby president Steve Green hopes the program — which will be overseen by Jerry Pattengale, head of the Green Scholars Initiative — will be placed in “hundreds” of high schools by 2016, and “thousands” by 2017. It is a four-year elective course in which students will study the narrative, history, and impact of the Bible on Western Civilization. Because the book is being taught within an academic purview, it does not violate the Establishment Clause of the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court in Abington School District v. Schempp.

Really? The bible? The entire bible? Old and New? Or just what Jesus “said?” Can we see a textbook that will be used? What about the Torah’s impact on Western Civ? How about the Koran? Analects? The Vedas? Christmas Trees and the Easter Bunny are pagan symbols? Can we include them too? Probably not, because the bible is the only thing that matters.

“Nothing we have said here indicates that such study of the Bible,” the Court decided, “when presented objectively as part of a secular program of education, may not be effected consistently with the First Amendment.”

Statements made by Green when he received the 2013 Templeton Prize for Progress Toward Research or Discoveries about Spiritual Realities strongly suggest that the material in the Museum of the Bible Curriculum will neither be “presented objectively” nor “part of a secular program.”

I’m curious if they will teach the part where Jesus said hate thy neighbor if they are gay. Blessed be the wealthy. Those in glass houses should through as many stones as possible. Fuck peace, Jesus wants to blast caps in non-believer’s asses. I’m sure Betty Bowers would love to teach this course.

Scott Brown and John Sununu

Sometimes it’s best in politics to just shut up. Because when you’re silent, you don’t have to worry about sounding like a jackass. Braying and Hee-hawing all the way through your life.

But now for Republicans. . .and not for Scott Brown and his new found friend, former Reagan lackey and mental midget John H. Sununu. I know, I know. . .all of you are asking the same thing I did. I also thought he died too.

Anyway, it’s time to launch one of the lamest, dumbest and most hypocritical attacks ever on a sitting senator.

“Shaheen votes with Elizabeth Warren. She votes with (Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Ed) Markey. She is the third senator from Massachusetts,” Sunnunu said at Brown's Portsmouth, N.H. rally, according to Yahoo's Chris Moody. “Scott’s happiest days as a young man were in New Hampshire. … So it’s going to be great to have a senator that was born virtually in the state of New Hampshire. Jean Shaheen, by the way, was born in Missouri!”

There is so much stupid in that, where to begin.

01: Shaheen is a Democrat. So is Warren and Markey. She will probably vote for things Democrats want. Does that mean Sanders is an MA Senator too? Leahy? Schumer? Angus Young in Maine? WTF is this piece of shit smoking?

02: Brown’s happiest days are in New Hampshire. . .great. Why did he move then? He left New Hampshire and became a senator from MA. Now he’s carpetbagging.

03: Jean Shaheen was born in Missouri. Oh snap. . .now it’s bad to be an American from the Heartland? So, according to John Sununu, people who move to new states are ineligible to run or should be voted out of office because they aren’t from the place they were born. According to your son’s wikipedia page, Johnny, he was born in Boston. Now, I teach geography and know how to read a map. Boston doesn’t look like it’s in New Hampshire. Let’s check the map.

Nope. . .that is clearly not New Hampshire. In fact, John H. Sununu, the asshole talking, was born in Havana! So, you’re a fucking foreigner, asshole. Why don’t you go back from where you came? I’m sure Fidel and Raul will accept you. Do you speak, as Tom Tancredo put it, “illegal immigrant” or do you speak English? Yes, I’m being absurd, but the hypocrisy is just so much to handle.

But wait. . .Scott Brown, according to his wikipedia page, was born in Kittery, Maine. Is Maine part of New Hampshire? Let’s check the map again.

Definitely not. In fact, Johnny, Maine used to be part of Massachusetts, where you were born. So you’re both hypocritical carpetbaggers.

Now is the time for both you and your little asshole friend John Sununu to just shut up and go away, Scott. The voters of Massachusetts didn’t want your worthless ass, and it appears your senate run in New Hampshire is DOA. But hey, you can always go back to be a centerfold.

North Korean Bullies

And finally, this internationally flavored edition ends with North Korean diplomats losing their shit and trying to do in a foreign country what works in their country: stifle satire and bully people into gulags.

This is the story of Mo Nabbach, a hair salon manager in London. Apparently, in an attempt to drum up business, he put up a sign in his window. It was of North Korean leader. . .I mean overlord and master, Jabba the Kim. . .oops, Kim Jong Un, the only man in a country suffering from famine to have a double chin, and the sign said “having a bad hair day?” Here is the sign.

Sophomoric. Lame. . .trying to be funny, but failing. Okay, we understand the intention.

Not so fast. Apparently, this bothered Asian looking men so they started taking photos “the day after it went up.” Nothing wrong with that. Maybe someone thought it was funny and Asian looking could be Japanese, South Korean, Chinese, Mongolian. . .people from Southeast Asia. This is where the story gets weird.

The pair allegedly told him to remove the poster, which they described as disrespectful to their immortal overlord leader. But Nabbach said that he frequently used pictures of celebrities in promotions (the poster advertised a 15-percent off offer), including Lady Diana.

They told him to remove it. Imagine the shock they must have gotten when Nabbach responded with two one fingered salutes with a simple phrase: Get the fuck out of my place, you Kim sucking asshole!” At least, that’s how I would have responded.

"I told them: 'Listen, this is not North Korea. This is England," said Nabbach.

That don’t matter. They are North Koreans. They own the world! At least they think they are the tail wagging the dog. And if weren’t for China, they wouldn’t even be the tail.

Police sources traced Nabbach's visitors back to the North Korean embassy, which is just a 10-minute walk from Nabbach's salon, although the manager said the two never actually identified themselves as embassy officials. A spokesman at the embassy declined to comment on the story.

The problem that alot of people from this part of the world (remember, the writer lives in China) is that they require the world to bend to them. Even when they are in your own country. This salon is not on the North Korean embassy grounds. It’s ten minutes away. So, these assholes walked ten minutes in an attempt to intimidate and threaten someone that isn’t one of their citizens in a country that isn’t even theirs.

If that doesn’t describe how fucked up shit is in Pyongyang, nothing does. At least Kim the Fat has his haircut.

Rubin Carter died over the weekend at the age of 76. It took him twenty years to find justice. And his plight is a travesty of justice and Americana.

George Stinney was executed at the age of 14 on no evidence. His parents were ran out of town in South Carolina and he was executed alone. The mask covering his face slipped off, “revealing his wide-open, tearful eyes and saliva coming from his mouth...After two more jolts of electricity, the boy was dead." His plight lasted 81 days. Yet, nothing has been done and the conviction stands even to this day.

The writer of the Top Ten urges all to work, help and donate to Rubin Carter’s group or The Innocence Project. Only when we make things that happened to Rubin Carter and George Stinney public can our justice system do what it’s supposed to do: give justice rather than punishment; convict based on evidence, not based on bias.

One can hope Mr. Carter’s plight and that of George Stinney will never happen again, but the writer of the Top Ten knows it will. We all need to work hard to insure justice happens for all those wrongfully convicted of crimes they did not commit.

See you next week.

Mayor 'Kind Of Agreed' With White Supremacist Accused Of Killing 3 At Jewish Centers

Source: Huff Post

Marionville, Missouri Mayor Dan Clevenger said he "kind of agreed" with some of the beliefs of Frazier Glenn Cross, the 73-year-old accused of killing three people outside of a Jewish community center and retirement complex near Kansas City on Sunday.

In an interview with KSPR, Clevenger said Cross -- who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Miller -- was "ery fair and honest and never had a bit of problems out of him."

"He was always nice and friendly and respectful of elder people, you know, he respected his elders greatly. As long as they were the same color as him," Clevenger said.

"Kind of agreed with him on some things but, I don't like to express that too much," Clevenger told KSPR, which noted the mayor had expressed his views before:

Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week #37

Schm-Huckabee Edition

So we're back for another edition and what a week it was for duck-fuckery. Wingnuts went hogwild in Nevada (2), Florida Government proves its a bunch of gun humping morons (4), Vance McAllister is a huge hypocrite (7) and Rush Limbaugh declares war on Stephen Colbert (1). And as always, don't forget the key.

Mike Huckabee

Former governor of Arkansas, former president also-ran and current spawn of Satan Mike Huckabee decided to open his mouth and spit out so many turds of wisdom it was hard to keep track. Usually when this dim bulb says something, it's ignored. But this week is an exception.

Deciding to go all out on the “I hate gays” line, Mike of Moronville burped out this homophobic missive.

Delivering the keynote address to the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition, Huckabee said he didn't "care what people do personally in their individual lives," according to CNN.

"I'm not against anybody. I'm really not," he said. "I'm not a hater. I'm not homophobic."

Sure you aren't, buddy. We'll accept that. So when you say their individual lives, does that mean you're for gay people getting married? Hell no . . . so you are a liar and a hypocrite too. Since you want to control who can and cannot get married, you do care “what people do personally in their individual lives."

He didn't stop with that. He decided to double down a little.

HUCKABEE: But … when people say, 'Why don't you just kind of get on the right side of history?' I said, 'You've got to understand, this for me is not about the right side or the wrong side of history, this is the right side of the Bible, and unless God rewrites it, edits it, sends it down with his signature on it, it's not my book to change.

The right side of the bible? The extreme right side. BTW, does God talk to you? He tells you what's right and wrong. . .and you act accordingly? So, Mike Huckabee, through oratory, or radio broadcasts or just talking out of your former huge fat ass, give God's orders to the rest of the world! Well, meet the prophet from Arkansas! Let's have a book of Huckabee. We will slip you in neatly between Numbers and Deuteronomy. (My apologies to Inherit the Wind fans).

It's like fundies truly believe their Smart Phones have a speed dial hookup to God and God will stop everything and answer them. Those in the God biz truly are completely up their own ass.

But he didn't stop. He went on to attack Obama's christian convictions. You know, because gayo-Americans want to be full citizens with full rights.

"He said it was because of his Christian convictions. Does he have them or does he not?" Huckabee told Ingraham. "If one has them, they don't change depending on what the culture does. You don't take an opinion poll to come up with a new point of view."

He laid out three possible scenarios to explain the president's change of heart: "Were you lying then or are you lying now or did the Bible get re-written?"
Huckabee loves his echo chambers. Fixed Noise, that harpie Laura Ingraham. Jesus said love all as your brother. Nowhere did he said “unless they like to sleep with other men.” Then we can hate them and deny them rights everyone else has. Why doesn't this asshole just move to Uganda already and enjoy the gay bashing there? Oh, I know why. . .too many black people.

So, because of all this gay acceptance, according to Huckabee, North Korea is more free than the US. Yes, you heard that right. A country with gulags, execution through explosion and starving dogs and a place where men in Pyongyang are required to have Kim Jong Un haircuts or face arrest is more free than the US.

Huckabee: "I'm beginning to think there's more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United States."

He cites the TSA patdowns. This prick didn't mind it when Bush was in office. . .but now he hates it. H.Y.P.O.C.R.I.T.E. Big time!

HUCKABEE: When I go to the airport, I have to get in the surrender position, people put hands all over me, and I have to provide photo ID and a couple of different forms and prove that I really am not going to terrorize the airplane – but if I want to go vote I don’t need a thing.

BECAUSE, dipshit, VOTING IS A FUCKING RIGHT!!! Riding on an airplane isn't. Which Amendment says you have the right to do that? I do agree with you though. . .the screenings, searches and bullshit is overkill, but your boy Bush and his little sycophant Tom Ridge made it happen, so deal with it. USA PATRIOT Act. Something you supposed, Mikey.

But let's look at his statement. “If I want to go vote.” I am sure, in Pyongyang, people line up around the corner to vote. I hear someone is running against Jabba the Kim next year. His name is “Ai Weil Dai,” because anyone that is suspected of disrespecting the Great Successor dies.

You know, like what happens in the US when the Republicans disrespect Obama. But it doesn't. So if you like North Korea soooo much, Mikey. . .head on over. Enjoy all the freedom a Stalinist regime still fighting the cold war can give you.

Bundy Ranch Idiots

Okay, so here's the backstory. Some guy in Nevada, let's call him Chump Change, is a cattle rancher using federal land so his cattle can graze. He was hit with grazing fees, but being a good Republican piece of crap that believes in the rule of law, he told the feds to go pound sand. So the feds got a court order to prevent Chump Change from grazing on federal all. All ranchers agreed with the court order. Not Chump Change. Laws are for other people. This was 15 years ago.

So, in the past week or so, the BLM said “enough of this crap” due to the drought and the endangered species in the area. They began to take the cattle by force off federal land, because, as you know, this is called trespassing. So what did Chump Change do? He flipped off the court order again and appealed to idiots like Sean Hannity and Alex Jones and Glenn Beck that see conspiracies when they wipe their asses.

In come the wingnuts, tempers blazing at the federal government for daring to enforce law. Freedumb! Freedumb!!! Li-ber-tee! Freedumb!

To add to the fun, Teabagging militia member have decided to descend upon Nevada and stir up more shit.

So they threaten, refuse to follow court orders, do their best to blame the Feds for following and trying to enforce a court order. Let's repeat that. A COURT ORDER! Because everyone has the right to tell court orders to kiss their ass. Especially if you are a “I hate the government” militia type.

Good news for the Bundy idiots, though. The Feds backed down. So much for the court order.

The dispute less than 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas between rancher Cliven Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management had simmered for days. Bundy had stopped paying fees for grazing his cattle on the government land and officials said he had ignored court orders.

Anti-government groups, right-wing politicians and gun-rights activists camped around Bundy's ranch to support him in a standoff that tapped into long-simmering anger in Nevada and other Western states, where vast tracts of land are owned and governed by federal agencies.

The bureau had called in a team of armed rangers to Nevada to seize the 1,000 head of cattle on Saturday but backed down in the interests of safety.

Great. Embolden these assholes even more. Why do they use kid gloves with right wing militia members but come down on OWS and left wing protesters with batons and tear gas?

An Arizona state representative in attendance, David Livingston, said the battle over the Bundy cows would serve as a unifying event for lawmakers across 11 western states working on state sovereignty issues

"This was a major tipping point," Livingston said.

So the next time some nutter screams “Rule of Law,” tell them about Cliven Bundy and his respect for the law. H.Y.P.O.C.R.I.T.E.S. Then fight the urge not to pick up the heaviest object you can find and try to beat the stupid out of them.

Lew Oliver

The Republicans have a problem. The largest ethnic group in the country, Latinos, tend to vote against them in droves, unless they are Cuban in Florida. Then they vote Republican because they have an axe to grind with Castro because before Castro, they had the power under Batista. Just as Gloria Estefan, whose father was one of Batista's personal bodyguards.

Anyway, Republicans in Florida are beginning to lose their stranglehold on the Latino vote because, as Lew Oliver puts its, too many Puerto Ricans have come to Florida.

The Republican leader of one of Florida's most populous urban centers was asked this week why his party was faring so poorly among voters in the area. His answer was that government-loving "semi-socialist" Puerto Ricans are moving in and changing things for the worse.

The Orlando Sentinel noted yesterday that voter registrations in Orange County, which includes Orlando, had changed significantly since the last election cycle in 2012: Democrats picked up a few thousand new voters, while the GOP actually lost 247 voters. In fact, registered Republicans are now the number three demographic in the region, trailing Dems and voters who registered as "independent" or "no party affiliation"—the fastest-growing segment.

Oh yes. . .semi-socialist Puerto Ricans. You know, American citizens, since Puerto Rico is an American protectorate (can't say colony. The American government isn't imperialistic, wink-wink). So because American citizen chose to live in the Orlando area, things have gotten worse. After all, that bastard Alan Grayson was re-elected. How dare people vote for Grayson? On top of being a liberal, he's a JEW!!!

The Sentinel gave both parties' county chairmen a chance to comment on the new numbers, and the Democratic head offered some banal boilerplate about Republican corruption. But Lew Oliver, the chairman of the Orange County GOP—pictured above with embattled Florida Gov. Rick Scott—went in another direction altogether, blaming his party's performance on new "demographics or national trends"—to wit, self-interested Hispanics with a poor work ethic:

The great grand irony of it all is that the massive predominantly Puerto Rican influx that has accounted for nearly all of this is the result of Puerto Ricans almost without exception fleeing Puerto Rico and other states whose economic opportunities have diminished. What do all those places have in common? Puerto Rico, Chicago, Illinois, New York? Democrat governments. You would think at least of few of them would figure that out. If you like a semi-socialist government where the highest aspiration is a nice secure government job, Puerto Rico is heaven on earth, PLUS nice weather!


Wow! Lazy, shiftless Ricans. Go back to where-ever you came. Damn, anti-American brown people. Why can't you be good Latinos, like Cubans. You know Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. . .thems good. The rest of you. You all suck!

Oliver ended his interview by saying “If those s—cs aren't bad enough, let me tell you about them beaners and wetbacks that are coming into this State.”

Heather Fitzenhagen

Over the objections of the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida House has passed a bill that would allow all gun owners to conceal their weapons in public during hurricane evacuations, toxic events, and riots.

Yes, please read that again.

Over the objections of the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida House has passed a bill that would allow all gun owners to conceal their weapons in public during hurricane evacuations, toxic events, and riots.

Did it sink in? Now, people can carry guns during Hurricane Andrew style storms and toxic events. Toxic events. I thought the zombie apocalypse would mean that you have to chop their heads off, not shoot them.

Because as we all know, the more guns we have, the safer we are! Just as Gabby Giffords and the people in Littleton and the movie theater in Colorado, Newtown, University of Texas, University of Virginia, and Fort Hood.

The sad thing is this passed 80-36, so more than 2/3s of the legislators voted for the NRA abombination.

The bill, HB 209, which was strongly supported by the National Rifle Association, passed 80-36, according to the Miami Herald. Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, (R-Fort Myers), who sponsored the bill, called it a win for liberty.

“The bells of liberty are surely ringing throughout Florida today,” she said. “We are making sure that no Floridian in lawful possession of a firearm must leave it behind while evacuating in an officially declared state of emergency.”

Oh, the piousness is sickening. There is a law that says “if you have a gun in an emergency, you must leave it in your home?” Is there? Honestly. This works well.

And it's so popular that the police love this idea. . .well, not quite.

However sheriffs from around the state opposed the bill, calling it “crazy.” “The bill is crazy, it’s absurd,” said Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri.

Disregarding recent controversies over Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law, Rep. Jimmie Smith, (R-Inverness), said concerns over the new law are overblown. “Every single time we’ve made changes to protect the Second Amendment rights of people, we hear about this wild wild west,” Smith said. “It’s going to be more dangerous. Shootings everywhere. And yet, we have one of the lowest rates of crime we’ve ever been at.”

What the hell does those communist, freedom hating police know about violence and crime? They just hate the second amendment.

And Jimmie Smith. . .when you say that. . .you tend to forget Trayvon Martin. But he doesn't matter. He's black.

Liz Cheney

Dick Cheney's succubus of a daughter still infects the airwaves with her bullcrap, trying to save her Troll-under-the-bridge father's legacy. And just like all Republicans, she has Ben-ghasm! Yes, that sexual disorder where Republicans bust a fat nut manufacturing a scandal that doesn't exist and it's there at all.

So, Liz gets on the air and claims that people need to stop investigating torture and investigate Benghazi. Oh no, not this shit again. First, the reason for the banshee wail.

Last week, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted 11-3 to request that the White House declassify parts of an investigation into the CIA’s enhanced interrogation program, whose chief backer in the Bush White House was former Vice President Dick Cheney.

And now her banshee wail.

SUCCUBUS: If you’re going to say that we should not have conducted the enhanced interrogation program, if you’re going to say that we shouldn’t have waterboarded three terrorists, then you’ve got to say that you’re willing to accept the consequences of that. You’ve got to be willing to say how many American lives would you have been willing to put at risk because you didn’t want to waterboard Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Wow. We executed the Japanese that waterboarded people after WW2. I guess pandering to fear is good for this crazy loon. I mean, torture did not do anything productive. It was a good recruitment poster for terrorist organizations, but nothing worthwhile was gained for the United States.

Isn't that right, Liz Cheney?

Please go away now. Just go away. Better yet. . .Hell is calling. They want you to come back, Liz. Figure out the fastest way to there. And take your cyborg daddy with you.

Chuck Gatshenberger

On every woman's list of things to do comes certain normal activities:

01: Buying a car
02: Finding a good job
03: Looking for a good life partner, depending on your sexual orientation.
04: Having a family, if one should choose.
05: Going to the market when need.
06: Buying carpets.
07: Having an abortion.

Yes, according to Chuck Gatshenberger , the first and the sixth are similar to the seventh. Buying cars and carpets is the same as abortion. You can pick up your bottom jaw off the ground now.

A Republican lawmaker in Missouri who is sponsoring a bill that would mandate women seeking an abortion undergo an ultrasound and wait three days for the procedure defended his measure Tuesday, suggesting a woman getting an abortion should treat it with the same deliberation as shopping for cars or carpeting.

Kind of like a cooling off period, huh? Okay. Sounds stupid enough. Makes about as much sense as the legitimate rape comment from Todd Akin.

Please proceed, dipshit!

State Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger (R) explained to his colleagues on the Missouri House's Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities committee that when he goes to buy a new vehicle, he doesn't just make a snap decision.

"I have to look at it, get information about it, maybe drive it, you know, a lot of different things. Check prices," he said, according to video recorded by Progress Missouri. "There's lots of things that I do putting into a decision. Whether that's a car, whether that's a house, whether that's any major decision that I put in my life. Even carpeting."

Bottom jaw back on the floor. So, let's see. . .to a woman, the decision to have an abortion is as simple as which socks to wear. All abortions are snap decisions. Woman finds out they are pregnant and they run to the pre-natal clinic for an abortion immediately. No thought, no consideration. . .just “get this thing out of me now!” Wow!

"I was faced with a decision that I didn't have very much information that I knew about," he added. "So I wanted to be as informed as possible, and that's what this bill is. Giving them as much information as possible."

You were faced with an abortion, Chuckie? Wow, due tell. Ripley's would be interested too.

So, let's recap. According to Dipshit here, having an abortion is the same as deciding paper or plastic. And because woman are irrational and will make decisions without thinking, we need to impose a cooling off period so their hormonal urges calm and some man can convince them the sanctity of life is more important than the quality of life.

How can any woman vote for these people? And the war on women continues. Expect Dipshit to introduce a bill next week stating that women are too emotional to buy cars and houses, so the sellers should talk to the closest man first before selling them anything. Because you women folk are just too stupid to breathe.

Vance McAllister

Entering into the “Party of Personal Responsibility” file, we find #7 on the list. . .Vance McAllister (R-Louisiana). See, he's a good Christain man.

He believes in Jesus, and God, and the flag, motherhood, apple pie, a wife, 2.3 kids, a white picket fence and the ten commandments. Except that commandment that says something about not committing adultery. That commandment is optional, especially when your johnson needs to find something new and you think no one can see you.

Rep. Vance McAllister, who ran on a "faith, family, and country" platform for his freshman term in the House, was caught on video kissing a member of his staff. McAllister, a married Republican from Louisiana, was elected to replace Rep. Rodney Alexander in a special election last November. The video was first posted to the the Ouachita Citizen's website on Monday. Later on Monday, McAllister released a statement "asking for forgiveness."

Whoops. . .well, if David Vitter can buy hookers and wear diapers (another toad from Louisiana), then Vance McAllister can suck face with a staffer behind his wife's back and still call himself a good Christian.

Notice how it works. . .he begs for forgiveness. Democrats need to resign, but Republicans just beg forgiveness and expect to not be held to the standard they set for Democrats. Anthony Weiner was forced to resign for Sexting. . .Eliot Spitzer for screwing escorts. Mark Sanford hikes the old Appalachian Trail, which begins in Maine and ends in a South American woman's vagina, and he gets elected to Congress. David Vitter gets caught with hookers and gets re-elected to the Senate. Amazing the hypocrisy.

The blurry video — which was seems to be recorded from security footage of McAllister's district office in Monroe, Louisiana on December 23 — shows the Congressman embracing and kissing a woman who has been identified by the paper as one of his aides. Although the video does not contain a clear close up of McAllister's face, reporter Zach Parker at the Citizen explained to the Wire that "we know McAllister. We know what he looks like. I believe he spoke to the Monroe Chamber of Commerce in that same shirt and jacket, too." The Ouachita Citizen notes that they obtained the video through an anonymous source, and identified both McAllister and the aide in question as its subjects. They also recognized the office shown on the video, which previously served as former Rep. Alexander's Monroe district offices.

Don't worry, he ain't going nowhere. The rubes in his district will re-elect him. So the next time you see a 20 year old playboy doing this, just remember. . .that prick in twenty years will be in Congress.

Rick Scott and Paul LePage

A two-fer of one term Teabag Republican governors comes in 8th this week. First, we go back to Florida. Yes, southerners, the Top Ten list is going to bash the South again.

Rick Scott, scumbag par excellent, is a known scam artist, fraud and liar. And he just doubled down on the biggest ACA lie ever told. First, the lie:

On Wednesday Scott deflected questions by reporters about the ads, produced by the Pro-Scott political committee Let’s Get to Work. "Clearly, the ad's accurate (sic)," Scott said. He refused to elaborate.

The insurance company that the claim is built around is Florida Blue, which warned last fall that 300,000 of their customers' insurance plans could be canceled through Obamacare because those plans didn't comply with the law.

Okay, more talking points, more bullshit. What's the problem?

But Florida Blue told the Herald that, contrary to the ads, 300,000 plans had not been canceled through Obamacare.

"To date, most of the members in our pre-ACA plans have kept their plans," Florida Blue spokesman Paul Kluding said.

Okay, so the scumsucking bottom feeder lied. Should we be surprised? The best thing to do is to say “yes, I lied. I'm sorry. I'll do a better job at fact checking.” But not if you're a Republican! If you're a Republican, it's never that. It's always lie, lie about lying, lie to cover up the lie about lying and then attack the messenger as partisan for discovering the lie to cover up the lie about lying.

"We were already told last fall that 300,000 Floridians were going to lose their insurance," Scott said.
When pressed about the ads' 300,000 plans claim, Scott just pivoted back to railing against Obamacare.

"If you look around the state, Obamacare has had an impact on a lot of people's plans," Scott said. "They're losing their doctors. And they're losing the plans."

Keep it up, dickhead. Charlie Crist already has a six point lead.

Up north, in Maine, plurality governor Paul LePage has vetoed Medicaid expansion for the third time, speaking platitudes and acting like an ass. . .you know, Paul LePage at all times.

Though the expansion bill cleared the legislature, it did not pass with enough votes to override LePage's veto, the Portland Press Herald reported, which is also what killed its predecessors.

Medicaid expansion "would have a disastrous impact on Maine’s budget, as well as those truly needy individuals, our disabled and elderly, who rely today on the scarce resources in our program,” LePage said in his veto message. “Maine has been down this road before, and we must learn from previous experience.”

More than 24,000 Mainers have been left without health coverage under Obamacare because the state hasn't expanded Medicaid.

Wow! So much bullshit in so few words. John Kasich, Tom Corbett, Scott Walker, Rick Scott, Pat McCrory, Paul LePage, Rick Snyder. . .please, if there is a God, wake the American people up and vote these douchey bastards out of office in November. Please!

Maybe then we can all repair the damage.

Pat Robertson

Back on the list for a second week in a row is Pat Robertson. Last week, his racism got the better of him as he decided that stereotypes about Jews makes compelling TV on the 700 Club. This week, God's chosen asshat has decided to ask God for deliverance; basically asking God to remove Obama from office. At least he didn't call for an assassination, just divine intervention.

Pat Robertson today asked God to "deliver" the US from President Obama before it's too late. After implying that Obama is a Muslim, Robertson told 700 Club viewers: "We need to do something to pray to be delivered from this president. He is a disaster, an absolute disaster. Democrat, Republican or whatever, this country is into serious decline unless something dramatic is done about it."

Such sentiments are nothing new from the right-wing televangelist. Robertson has previously suggested that Obama is a "crypto-Muslim" and once during George W. Bush's presidency prayed for God to remove justices from the Supreme Court.

Is it time for another famous Patwa? “God, save the country from Obama. He only enabled nine million people to have access to affordable health care. Please God, make it so. Please! Please, with sprinkles and a cherry on top.”

BTW, what the hell is a crypto-Muslim? A Muslim that worships while watching Tales from the Crypt?

While promoting a Christian Broadcasting Network booklet, “Islam: Religion of Peace or War?,” Robertson suggested Obama professed faith in Islam during a 2012 address to the UN General Assembly where he said that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” In fact, Obama's speech focused on protecting the freedom of speech and religion, and Robertson conveniently omits the president's next line: “To be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”

“Our president is frankly out of his mind, making a statement like that. The future belongs to those who belong to God almighty, not those who believe in this stuff.”

Selective editing to further your point. “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” So much for Pat's godly credibility. Like he ever had any to begin with. Worthless piece of dog vomit!

Rush Limbaugh

And finally, I know. . .who gives a shit? This fat hog is meaningless and has nothing left except his oxycotin, but when you say something this monumentally stupid, it needs to be laughed at.

Apparently, the Tonnage on Loan from God has his knickers in a twist because Stephen Colbert is going to replace David Letterman on the Late Show in 2015. He's upset that a liberal comedian will take over the late shot from a liberal commentator. Remember, Letterman invited Limbaugh on his show back in 1993 and asked Rush if Rush ever thought He was a bag of hot gas? That David Letterman.

"CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America," Limbaugh fumed. "No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatism. Now it's just wide out in the open. What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny, and a redefinition of what is comedy. They're blowing up the 11:30 format... they hired a partisan, so-called comedian, to run a comedy show."

What values are those, Pigboy? Comedy is always an attack on the establishment. That's the way it is. Rock, Carlin, Stewart, Pryor, Foxx, Bruce. . .they all attacked the establishment. Only lame ass pieces of crap like Leno, Stine, Miller, Cook and all those unfunny rejects on Comedy Central's roasts don't attack the establishment. You don't like being attacked, stop being such an easy target, Pigboy.

There is nothing more to say. I don't want to waste any more bandwidth on a small time loser like this. The Top Ten is for bigger fish, and by bigger, I don't mean fatter. So I will close by quoting DU member Workinclasszero in his response to Limbaugh's horseshit.

WORKINCLASSZERO: That filthy stinking rich multi millionaire boil encrusted fat ass fascist draft dodger drug addict serial adulterer hate filled pus bag knows absolutely ZERO about ANY American value, traditional or otherwise

Couldn't say it any better than that.

What the fuck is going on in Nevada?

Why are radical right wing assholes like Hannity and Alex Jones getting their panties in a wad of cows eating grass?

Seriously, a right wing dipshit on my facebook has been blowing up my account with all this horseshit.

So, out of ignorance, please help me DU. . .help me understand what the hell is going on in Nevada. And why does it feel like the right wing is itching for a civil war? And they are telling soldiers not to follow the president, just follow the country. . .what are these turd burgers complaining about?

Sorry about all the swear words, but on my facebook I got told to go back to Israel because I'm Jewish. . .and I'm a bit pissed off that these piece of crap. I never insult people on my facebook, but I had to respond with "Hell called. They want you back. Please figure out how to go there."

Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week #36

The Best Government Money Can Buy Edition

Oh, you didn't think this week would pass without the SCOTUS (1) being labeled and tagged #1, did you? They essentially ended one man, one vote with their decision and decided that “one billionaire, one bank account” is better. Also on the list this week, Vladimir Putin and Pat Robertson are bigots (3, 4), Hall of Famer Louie Gohmert has an odd idea (7) and Dan Coats is a complete moron (1).And as always, don't forget the key.

The United States Supreme Court

Mark it down. July 1776 – March 2014. . .that's the lifespan of the Great American experiment in democracy. Citizens United put it on life support and McClutcheon V. FEC has pretty much ended the pretense that the United States is a democracy. And like always, the hubris comes out big time as those wishing to buy democracy come out of their rat holes to feast on the rotting carcass. RIP poor man's voice in government.

On a 5-4 vote, the court struck down the overall limits on how much individuals can give to candidates, parties and political action committees in total during the federal two-year election cycle.

The ruling leaves in place base limits on how much a donor can give individual candidates and laws that require candidates, parties and political action committees to disclose information about donors.

The court was divided over how sweeping the ruling actually is. The biggest impact is that a single donor can now give the maximum amount by law to as many federal candidates, parties and committees as he or she wishes.

So, if some rich, bored idiot like Sheldon Adelson or those measly Koch stains decide to spent 1% of their massive fortune, now they can. Super PACs aren't even necessary anymore. Just sign a check and it's done. Bought, sold and paid for.

Chief Justice John Roberts, or the modern day Roger Taney, [link:http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/04/02/supreme-court-campaign-finance/4481675/|wrote the majority decision.

"The government has a strong interest, no less critical to our democratic system, in combating corruption and its appearance," Roberts wrote. "We have, however, held that this interest must be limited to a specific kind of corruption — quid pro quo corruption — in order to ensure that the government's efforts do not have the effect of restricting the First Amendment right of citizens to choose who shall govern them."

Next time someone says there is no difference in the parties, slap that person silly and then have them committed to a nut house. The five Republican nominated justices all said it's perfectly acceptable for politicians and political parties to get on their knees, open their mouths and service the billionaire. The four Democratic nominees tried to invoke sanity by voting no.

Those who voted for George Bush, or didn't vote at all. . .I hope you're happy. We're stuck with Roberts and Alito for at least the next 25 years.

So to recap. . .Democracy is dead, plutocracy is in and American Idol is on. Time to defund the educational system a bit more so people don't develop the critical thinking skills to realize the politicians and the upper 1% that controls them threw them overboard 40 years ago. Let's keep Americans just smart enough to do the jobs and just dumb enough to accept low pay, long hours, no benefits, no job security, vanishing pensions and everything else that the right wing wants to do.

Amazing how the election of a black man caused white Republicans to go insane.

All Levels of American Government

Number Two looks at the plight of Jerome Murdough, a nameless, faceless, mentally-ill homeless veteran in New York City. And his story is an indictment on all levels of American Government. Yes, even the current executive branch.

Jerome Murdough, a 56-year-old, mentally-ill homeless veteran, was just trying to stay alive during a New York City cold snap when he thought he found his spot: a stairwell leading to a roof in a Harlem public housing project.

But that desperate act set in motion a nightmare ride through New York's criminal justice system that would end with Murdough dying of heat stroke in a Riker's Island jail cell. New York officials now say the system failed Murdough every which way.

So, America treats its veterans so well they become homeless. America wants good babies to they can raise them to be dead soldiers. And if a soldier comes back alive, hurt or maimed, they are a drain on society and a “taker.” A soldier must be dead to be admired, as Gordon Lightfoot sang.

And American government loves its veterans so much they allow them to become homeless and have to find a place to sleep in a doorjam. Only to have to shithead cop arrest the veterans for vagrancy and put them through the nightmare of the draconian, police state, zero tolerance, everyone is a criminal American criminal justice system.

Because, as we all know, homelessness, poverty and all that comes with it is criminal in today's America.

When he was discovered, he should have been offered shelter. When he was arraigned, he should not have been slapped with $2500 bail. When, unable to make bail, he ended up in jail, Murdough, because he was on medication for a mental condition, should have been monitored every 15 minutes, not left unwatched for at least four hours. It was during that untended time that Murdough, as an official told the Associated Press, "basically baked to death."

So the uneducated police are Riker's Island (I say that because all that is required is a High School Diploma and the ability to read, write and understand English on most police job application forms across the country) allow this man to cook because. . .he's dangerous? They didn't provide adequate care. They didn't provide supervision and let this poor man die.

You read about North Korea, Uzbekistan, Belarus and Iran doing things like this and people in America get upset. But when it happens in our backyard, there is nary a peep made. The Great American Double-Standard: “it's wrong for another country to do what we do in our country.”

Now, as New York officials discuss "the tragedy" of last month and scapegoat one Riker's Island guard for Murdough's death — suspending him for 20 days — the United Nations has taken notice. Murdough, the latest statistic in a series of needless deaths of homeless people while under arrest for "crimes" related to being unhoused, such as loitering or trespassing, was also the last straw.

Just like My Lai in Viet Nam. It all fell on Lt. Calley, the fallguy. Police in NY probably picked this guy because no one likes him, he's a bit of a trouble maker and honestly wants to do good rather than use the badge as a manhood and self-esteem extension.

So the United Nations has condemned the US for criminalizing homelessness. Not that American governments at any level give a shit about that. We're Americans. We're the greatest.

On March 16, a homeless man in Albuquerquewas shot and killed by police who were attempting to arrest him for illegal camping. James Boyd, 38 years old with a history of mental illness, was shot dead by Albuquerque police while his back was turned after a three-hour stand-off. Boyd, armed with a small knife, appeared to be surrendering when he was gunned down. The incident was caught on one of the officer's helmet-cams and has been posted on YouTube by at least half a dozen news outlets.

The whitewash was on instantly, but the FBI came in to investigate. Don't expect anything to happen.

So why the indictment of all levels of American government, even the current executive? Because they allow it. They've passed these laws, signed them, enforce them. Mandatory minimums, three strikes, long punishments for victimless crime. The government has brainwashed people that criminals will come out of their toilet and attack them when they take a shit, so we pass SYG laws and kill minorities that are “suspicious” or “made me fear for my life” because they are carrying iced tea or listening to music too loud.

We use drones to kill. We have Gitmo still open. Joe Arpaio's “tent city” runs still in 120 degree heat of Maricopa County. Police shoot, kill, beat, attack and torture people with impunity and the American government allows it to happen. And so do the American people by electing and re-electing the people that pass these laws.

Oh. . .as for Mr. Murdough. He was black too. So being homeless and black. . .double felony and the punishment definitely needs to be death. If only he died like a soldier should die. Then he'd be a hero.

But he was a veteran. And homeless. And black. And mentally ill.

Vitaly Milonov

Russia has decided to throw away all pretenses of their fake democracy and have decided to become an aggressive, imperialistic state, using “lebensraum” and “there are Russians in that area and all Russians should be under the Russian flag” arguments in Crimea.

Putin has decided to crank up old conflicts and try to reignite a cold war. Inside Russia, one of Putin's allies, Vitaly Milonov, has decided to ratchet up old world pogroms and the classic specter of antisemitism by calling Jews “Christkillers.” Yes, we're back to blood libels and drinking the blood of unbaptized babies for Passover Seders. And we killed Jesus too (The writer of the Top Ten is Jewish).

“They vilify any saint, it is in their tradition of 2,000 years, beginning with the appeals to crucify the Savior, ending with accusations of anti-Semitism against St. John of Kronstadt,” Milonov said during a March 19 speech before the city’s legislative council, according to the report.

They stole German money. They ruined Germany's economy. They caused and profited from the hyperinflation of 1923! Kill the Jews! Kill the Jews! DEATH'S HEAD UNITS! Kill them all, those greedy, hook-nosed heathen Jews!

The word “they” is a weasel word. It implies everyone thinks and does the same and panders and appeals to the baser instinct of group hatred that people that are afraid, angry and discontented manifest.

Milonov was advocating a bill that proposes to declare June 14 a municipal holiday in honor of John of Kronstadt, a 19th century leader of the Orthodox Russian Church. His legacy remains controversial because of his membership in the Black Hundred, an ultranationalist and declaredly anti-Semitic movement that supported pogroms against Jews.

Milonov is the same politician who has proposed that Russia outlaw the “promotion” of homosexuality, grant full citizenship to embryos and forcing women who have not given birth by the age of 23 to join the army.

So, this asshole hates Jews and Gays. What a fun person. No wonder former KGB personnel Vladimir Putin has this person as an ally. They are two peas in a pod. If that pod is rotting from the inside out.

He argues, “I don’t want children to get the wrong idea that traditional and non-traditional forms of partnerships are equal – they are not equal…. But a video clip by say, Madonna, in which she is kissing another woman that can be seen by children is gay propaganda. Children like to copy their role models.”

Role models? I'm glad you're not a role model. . .mass murder and second class citizenry would be the norm. And I'm sure he blames Jews and Gays for the massive Krocodil epidemic that is sweeping his country. . .as well as the ballooning HIV rates.

I guess, since the current Russian government is trying to rehabilitate Stalin's image in the eyes of today's Russians, going for broke by bringing back Tsarist policies of pogrom and Jew hating works too.

And the Russian democratic experiment falls flat. Remember, Democracy is all put impossible in places that have never had any tradition of it.

Get ready for a new cold war. It's coming, and the MIC is salivating.

Benghazi Republicans

Benghazi. Benghazi. Benghazi. BENGHAZI! (breathe). Ben. Gha. Zi.

There, got that out of my system. But apparently, the Republicans in Congress haven't, won't and can't. Because there are now new calls for an investigation. Oh no, not this shit again.

"We are once again calling for the appointment of a Joint Select Committee to investigate the terrorist attacks on our compounds in Benghazi," said Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) in a statement Monday. "It is imperative that we learn everything that happened before, during and after the attacks. A Joint Select Committee should be established."

Graham, McCain and Ayotte. . .not surprising. McCain is that old man with a cane screaming at kids to get off his lawn while reminding us of the good old days when certain people knew their place. Graham is that guy on the street with the sign saying “The End if Coming” while muttering incoherent musings about freedom and government conspiracies. . .and Ayotte is just fucking stupid.

A join select committee needs to be established, eh? Darrell Issa leading it? Graham the co-chair and McCain being the one who smells off cat pee and mothballs in the corner sleeping? Luckily, Harry Reid has better things to do than listen to these three jackasses.

The push comes as House Democrats are demanding that House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) give up his year-and-a-half long probe into purported Obama administration mischief over the attack. Democrats accuse Issa of pursuing a witch hunt aimed at tarnishing the president and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ahead of a possible 2016 presidential run. To date, there isn't evidence to implicate Clinton or senior White House officials in wrongdoing.

Well, there's Issa's name. And no evidence has been found? Don't worry. They are Republicans. They will fabricate. . .oops, I mean invent. . .oops again, I mean “locate” all the evidence they need. All they have to do is tell half truths, innuendo, pseudo-patriotic slogans and speak with self-righteous indignation.

Not to be outdone with the Obama Derangement Syndrome, Michelle Bachmann (R-Jupiter) offered her latest Alex Jones/Glenn Beck conspiracy theory about Benghazi and why nothing has been found. It isn't because nothing is there. I mean, something has to be there. No, it's because Hillary Clinton needed a fall guy.

In an interview with World Nut Daily, Bachmann goes all tin-foil hat.

“She couldn’t have a better person to take the fall for her because (former CIA Deputy Director Mike) Morell was involved in rewriting the talking points and was the No. 2 at CIA," Bachmann told WND, suggesting that Morell was clearing the path for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. "So, he can come in authoritatively say, ‘No, that’s not the story. The story is the fake story we tried to push.'"

Evidence? Evidence? We don't need not steen-king evidence! We have ideology and an echo chamber that will believe anything we say. Who needs evidence? Or proof? Or logic? Or intelligence for that matter? This is Michelle Bachmann.

Bachmann, in her interview with WND, claimed that by pointing at “underlings,” Morrell sought to “preserve his status, so, if Hillary becomes the next president, he can safely become the next director of the CIA. That’s what this is all about.”

After she was done, the aliens came and took her back to her home planet.

Pat Robertson

Back on the homefront, Pat Robertson decided to take his lily-white bedsheets off his bed, put them on and wear them on his turdfest echo chamber “The 700 Club.” 700 of what, no one knows. Maybe 700 ways to make rational, thinking Americans cringe.

So, Putzo McBiblethumper decide he wants to opine on one of his favorite areas: Jews. He had on some guy promoting a book and things went down into Hell fast.

The televangelist, and former GOP presidential candidate, delivered another zinger Monday, when he welcomed conservative activist, Rabbi Daniel Lapin to his Christian Broadcasting Network show “The 700 Club.” Lapin was there to promote his book “Business Secrets From the Bible” about making money.

Robertson started the interview by asking, “What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially? You almost never find Jews tinkering with their cars on the weekends or mowing their lawns.”

Hmmm. . .really? Are you sure about that? Or is that just what your rich friends think? Better call the gardener or the private mechanic.

Granted, not many people can fix a car. I can't even change my oil, but that doesn't mean no Jew does it. The writer's brother is a car mechanic in Arizona. His best friend was a grease monkey in the United States Army. Two examples of Jews that show Pat Robertson thinks things that come out of his anal cavity.

Lapin didn't appear the least bit surprised or insulted. In fact, he agreed with Robertson. “No, I pay one of the best mechanics around to take care of my BMW. That's what I do. I'd be crazy to take my time doing it myself,” Lapin said. “Or for me to mow my lawn, I'm the worse lawn mower in the world, but the young man who lives down the street from me, he's one of the best and he's happy to do it. I'm happy.”

How hard is it to mow the lawn? Get on your riding mower, put it into the driver and drive in a circle. If Forrest Gump could do it, so can anyone with an IQ double their shoe size. Sorry, Mr. Lapin. . .you're an elitist snob. You and Pat should fit in well together. You just need to accept Robertson's warped interpretation of Jesus Christ.

Later in the interview, Robertson joked that Jews are “polishing diamonds, not fixing cars.”

Next on the 700. Jews: Greedy money grubbers or just Takers in the Job-creator class? Pat Robertson opines with the ghost of Walt Disney while reading from the Bible and Mein Kampf.

Louie Gohmert (HOF)

Top Ten Hall of Famer Louie Gohmert is back again for a two-fer of “casting aspersions on his asparagus.” First the Giant Texas Boob comes out with one of the dumbest lines in the history of mankind, then goes for broke by accusing those who have been victims of intolerance of being “intolerant.”

#1: In a statement that is sure to make people's head's spin, Gohmert actually believer that the first amendment Establishment Clause means government can't interfere with religion, but the Church plays a role in the State. You may pick up your bottom jaw off the ground.

In a World Net Daily-sponsored promotion for an upcoming Christian TV event called “Washington – A Man of Prayer,” Gohmert recalled that the U.S. House of Representatives once met in what is now known as National Statuary Hall.

“On Sundays this became the largest non-denominational Christian church in the Washington, D.C. area,” he explained. “People came in here and prayed, they sang hymns, they worshiped God. It was part of our history.”

Yeah. . .so? What about Jews? Muslims? Hindus? Do they matter? Christ was Jewish, dipshit! But all that doesn't matter. Engel V. Vitale. Lee V. Weisman. You people on the right need to learn constitutional case law. It's not hard. If you know how to read, which might be stretch for you people.

Louie the Loon then went on to misquote Thomas Jefferson.

Gohmert pointed out that a Congressional Research Service report revealed that President Thomas Jefferson, who coined the phrase “separation of church and state,” had also attended church services at Statuary Hall.

Let's see something Jefferson said, as quoted by DU member Galraedia:

JEFFERSON: “Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the 'wall of separation between church and state,' therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.”

So, Louie is talking not only bullshit, but out of his huge ass as well.

But not stopping there, Louie doubles down and goes after a Republican's favorite target gayo-Americans. First a little background on Louie's attitudes towards the LGBT community.

Earlier this year, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) endorsed Arizona’s failed “right-to-discriminate” bill for challenging attempts to “establish the religion of secularism.”

In reaction to Mississippi’s enactment a similar law, Gohmert yesterday told Washington Watch host and Family Research Council president Tony Perkins — who stood behind Mississippi’s governor at the bill’s signing ceremony — that he is “so proud of Mississippi and what they’ve done.”

One thing Louie is good at is going to places where he will be welcomed. World Nut Daily, Family Research Council, Townhall, Fixed Noise. He loves those places. Go any place else and he looks like the boob he is.

So he is not a friend of gay people. He thinks the 14th amendment doesn't apply them and neither does the Full Faith and Credit Clause. Remember, this clown was a judge!

What happened when Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant refused to said the gay hating bill? Louie started whining and crying.

After Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant came on the show to receive Gohmert’s plaudits, the congressmen called the anti-gay law “a wonderful example of real freedom” and attacked gay rights critics as intolerant: “You’ve seen it first hand, there is nobody more intolerant in this country than those that are screaming for tolerance. Christians are not intolerant but whoa, goodness these people that have their leftist agenda that are so intolerant so thanks for having the courage to stand up.”

Wha. . .what? People who are working to stop discrimination based on sexual orientation are the bigots and the intolerants? I guess the men that beat Matthew Shepperd to death were good, wholesome Americans that were tolerant of differences. It was tolerant murder.

Boob is good to describe Louie Gohmert, who solidly continues to earn his place in the Top Ten Hall of Fame.

Lorraine Mae Rafferty

Let's look at what Republicans have equated gay marriage to being:

01: Pedophilia
02: Bestiality
03: Destruction of traditional families
04: Destruction of American culture
05: murder.

Wha. . .what? Murder? Seriously? That's can't be true. According to Lorraine Mae Rafferty, running for the GOP nomination for Oregon governor, it is true.

Meet Lorraine Mae Rafferty of Selma, Ore., who, despite having never served in elective office, is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of Oregon.

In this four-minute “meet the candidate” interview with The Oregonian, Rafferty explains why she’s running for governor and makes it clear that she opposes same-sex marriage because it’s a sin, “just the same as murder” — a label she also applies to abortion.
Yes, she person actually said that. . .on the record, to people who recorded her words. Amazing. Stupid, and amazing.

The news article has the video of this, so there is no way Psycho McKlanswoman can scream she was taken out of context.

So, all you murderers out there. . .when you're arrested for killing someone, blame a gay person who want to get married. It's their fault anyway.

Next up for Ms. Rafferty: Explaining the concept of a gubernatorial campaign that's DOA before it even begins. All because gay people, and their supporters, think she's just a fucking lunatic.

Tag Greason

Virginia has a lot of jackasses in their Legislature. Tag Greason is a perfect example.

He gets into an email exchange with a constituent over Obamacare and the ACA. Soon, it devolves into Greason showing himself to be classless, shameless and brainless.

Susan Merk, an elderly resident at Leisure World in eastern Loudoun County, initiated the noted email exchange with her delegate March 24 by voicing her support of Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. "It's imperative that federal Medicaid aid is passing the budget," Merk wrote.

Greason, an outspoken opponent of expanding Medicaid in Virginia, responded first by thanking Merk for contacting him. He went on to explain his position against expansion, reasoning that "ObamaCare has already proven to be inefficient, costly, and an utter disaster," and that "Medicaid is one of the largest and fastest-growing parts" of the budget even without expansion.

Okay. . .this is starting well. Merk goes into why her Delegate should do the right thing and expand medicaid and Greason responds with condescending talking points without logic or reason. Politicians normally talk down to their constituents because voters are idiots and are only tools to get and keep power.

Ms. Merk didn't take too kindly to this man talking down to her and told him so in a follow-up email.

Merk responded by saying, "This reply is pitiful - it's nothing but partisan rhetoric, false accusations and invalid excuses."

"I will be sure to vote you out the next time you're up for election," she said.

We at the Top Ten are proud of you, Susan Merk! Way to standup for yourself. You pulled no punches. You told him exactly what you thought and told him that his idiocy cost him a vote. Good job.

Tag Greason decided not to let it die. . .he had to have the last word. And it's painful to read, coming from an elected official.

"Pitiful because I am willing to enter a dialogue with you? All you liberals are the same. As soon as someone doesn't agree with you, you shut down communication, call the other side names, take your ball and go home. I understand and am saddened by this approach at the federal level ... but your reaction below is THE problem. I did not have to write you back ... but I did. I think discussing differences is the only way to solve problems ... you would rather leap right to the insults. How intellectually lazy are you? You are the problem. Good luck to you. You can not insult your way to 'victory.' If you are not willing to have a civil discussion, please do not write me again. It is a waste of my time. Thanks, Tag."

Wow! Calm down there, slappy! You blame a voter for disagreeing with you. What thin skin you have.

How dare this woman challenge the great Tag Greason! You stupid, fucking, old, female skazwag! Shut up and agree! What the fuck do you know? You're just a voter! One of a million. Fuck you! And don't bother me again. I have more important things to do. I actually took time out of my day to talk to the likes of you. I mingled with the commoners.

Makes Virginia proud. So, all of you in this asshole's district. . .remember, come election day, to vote for the other person. Tag Greason is too immature and thin skinned to take the smallest and lightest form of criticism.

Ted Cruz

Booze Cruz is really angling to make a name for himself so he can be the first foreign born president of the United States, if people don't include the Chester A. Arthur controversy back in the Gilded Age.

Anyway, Teddy Boy of Idiotland decides he is going to put up a poll on his Facebook (because it's free and it makes him look hip and cool) in which he asked a simple question: “Quick poll: Obamacare was signed into law four years ago yesterday. Are you better off now than you were then? Comment with YES or NO!”.

Dumbo got almost 56,000 responses. Most told him he was a complete idiot. The Top Ten mentioned this last week if you go to #9.

Let's look at a few of the things say to Ted.

01: “Not only am I better off, but I have friends that are better off.”

02: “Yes I have MS and I lost my job I wouldn’t be able to get any other insurance because of my pre existing condition thank you President Obama.”
03: “This nation is better off for helping folks avoid the devastation that poor health can bring. Thank you, ACA!”

Oops. . .not good. Anything else?

“Impeach Ted Cruz! He caused the shutdown that hurt this country badly!” one says.

No problems with that. Ted Cruz has shown he is not worthy of the honor of being an elected speed bump, let alone an elected senator.

Don't worry. . .his spokestoad made a good spinning excuse for the poll being as bad as it looks for Cruz.

But Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier noted Wednesday that most of the negative responses came days after the question went up. She pointed to two liberal websites—Liberals Unite and DemocraticUnderground.com—that linked to the post and encouraged people to comment.

“This was clearly a manufactured, concerted effort from people on the left making comments days after the original post was put up,” she said. “Probably a better use of their time would be encouraging the administration to build an Obamcare website that actually works.”

Hey, we're famous! DU fucked up Ted Cruz's bullshit poll. Now, if we can just fuck up his Senatorial career and presidential aspirations, DU would be complete.

What a God damn crybaby.

Dan Coats

And finally, senators and Congressmen like to pass themselves off as intelligent, worldly and having brains. Let that sink in and try not to laugh your ass off doing it.

Most of these people are the lowest common denominator that pander to the lower-than-the-lowest common denominator. And Dan Coats of Indiana is a prime example. See, he spent a lot of time working on a hearing.

Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.) was prepped for an appropriations hearing on the defense budget when he took his turn Wednesday afternoon, flipping papers on his lap, reading from them and commending the witness for his department’s prompt response to a letter Coats had sent about a military accounting office in his home state.

Okay. This is what a senator should do. Prepare for a hearing, get the facts, get the ideas and prepare questions that give them the answers they require to get the truth.

Good job, Dan Seals. You make Indiana proud.

It was all fairly innocuous except for one problem: Coats was in the completely wrong hearing complimenting the wrong witness.

Ummm. . .what? What? What!?!

Schmucko went to the wrong place and spoke to the wrong person? And no one that works for him told him this?

After he’d finished a lengthy opening to his question, a staffer slipped Coats a piece of paper. Coats read it to himself, looked up, and said, “I just got a note saying I’m at the wrong hearing.”

“Well, that would explain why I didn’t know anything about this letter,” said David Cohen, undersecretary of treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence.


Yes, the asshole showed up at the wrong hearing. I wonder, if he needs the bathroom next, he will realize that the one with the person in the dress is the woman's bathroom.

Couldn't find his ass with both hands. And he's in Congress. God help us all.

See you next week.

Top Ten Conservative Idiots of the Week Vol. 35


My computer fried, so I lost my template for the Top 10. If anyone can send me the coding needed to get the name of the icon by rolling the mouse over it, I will add it next week.

Yes, that's the question of the week. What is wrong with Wisconsin? First, they elect Scott Walker, then they vote out Russ Feingold for that assturd Ron Johnson. . .and we have two state legislators (1) that embarrass everyone. Also on the list. God told Bryan Fischer that discriminating against women is a good idea (3), a bank in New Jersey hates Atheists (7) and Ted Nugent comes back to the list after a three week hiatus (10). And as always, don't forget the key.

Bill Kramer and Jason Wisneski

This week starts off in the state of Wisconsin. Yes, the state that the Koch Brothers are trying to buy and run into the ground by buying the governor, a senator and the state house from people who decided they were so angry at Barack Obama in 2010 that they stayed home. And since 2014 is looking to be the same as 2010 (with Democrats not wanting to vote for some stupid reason), we will end up seeing more stories like the two below.

First, Wisconsin Assemblyman Bill Kramer as a sex problem. . .he likes to fondle women.

A state lawmaker in Wisconsin ousted weeks ago as a Republican leader of the Assembly over accusations of sexual harassment was charged Friday with sexually assaulting a female aide to a senator in 2011, according to a criminal complaint.

Republican Bill Kramer was accused in the criminal complaint of forcibly kissing the female aide and grabbing her breasts after a political event in suburban Milwaukee in April 2011, the criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County said.

Let's see. Sexual Harassment, sexual battery, unwanted sexual contact. . .part and parcel for a Republican sex-hound. If the accusations included “unwanted entry with a cumbersome object,” it would be complete.

Kramer is charged with two counts of second degree sexual assault, which calls for up to 40 years in prison and a $100,000 fine on each count.

IOKIYAR, I guess. Expect him to find God, a drug problem or some other bullcrap excuse. Anything to deflect blame from his love of rape.

As evil as that is, nothing comes more disgusting that Jason Wisneski. He came up a great story to deflect from his love affair of breaking the legs of cats. The Democrat murdered his grandchild.

Earlier this week, the Green Bay Press-Gazette asked County Board candidate Jason Wisneski about a 2008 conviction for animal mistreatment for breaking his cat’s legs. Although Wisneski denied breaking his cat’s legs, he spent three days in jail after pleading guilty.

Okay, so he's got Ted Bundy qualities. Nice. Good for a Republican. Ted Bundy was also a Republican.

In response, Wisneski pointed to a 2007 tragedy, when his Democratic opponent, state Senator Dave Hansen, accidentally killed his 23-month-old granddaughter while backing out of the driveway.

“It’s funny how they never bring up Dave Hansen murdering his grandchild though,” Wisneski wrote in a post on the Press-Gazette‘s website.

Hmm. . .sick, twisted bastard. Using the death of a 23 month old baby in a traffic accident to cover up your sit love of abusing animals. You are proof the Republicans are the party of sick, twisted ne'er-do-wells.

Walker, Johnson, Kramer, Wisneski. . .four peas in a pod. Wisconsin Democrats, are you embarrassed enough yet to vote these Republican POSes out of office (oops, a swear word. Hopefully, no one will get offended)? Or will you sit at home and pout because Obama didn't give you 100% of what you wanted.

Glenn Champ

Next on the list, California. The place where the GOP is in such disarray that they will nominate just about anyone to try to take Moonbat Jerry Brown out of office. This time, it's some putz (oops, a swear word. Hopefully, no one will get offended) named Glenn Champ, the latest in the Republican saviors in California.

Glenn is the good American boy. Handsome, rugged, individualistic, Christian ex-con, registered sex offender.

One of the four gubernatorial candidates introduced to at the California Republican state party’s semi-annual convention last week spent a decade in prison for convictions for voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape, according to the LA Times.

The GOP wants to put THIS in Sacramento? Seriously??? This guy? Manslaughter, assault with intent to commit rape? This guy? This! Guy!

Speaking before hundreds of delegates and supporters, Glenn Champ, 48, did not directly address colorful history, choosing instead to explain, “In my life, I’ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge.”

No, it's still fair game, bozo. See, if a Democrat had this, you Republicans would be screaming for a public flogging. But IOKIYAR, apparently. Democrats are ex-cons. Republicans are held accountable for stupidity. Apparently, attempted rape, manslaughter and weapons charges are just acts of stupidity. Murder must be just an ask of brew-haha.

As for a lack of knowledge. . .apparently, no doesn't mean no to you. No means get a tire iron and beat the shit (oops, a swear word. Hopefully, no one will get offended.) out of a girl until she says yes or is passed out, which means yes anyway.

Champ’s criminal history is extensive. Court records show that he pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed firearm in 1992. In 1993, he was convicted of two counts of assault with intent to commit rape and was placed on the state’s sex-offender registry.

Weapons charges too? Please explain this photo then!

It's from Champ's own campaign website. NRA sponsored laws for background checks really work. They kept guns out of this assaulting, killing, attempted rapist's hands.

Bryan Fischer

According to Bella Abzug, “a woman's place is in the House. . .of Representatives.” According to Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association (another nice sounding brand name to disguise the sexist racism of their ideas), a woman's place is to be discriminated against.

Bryan Fischer, the director of Issues Analysis for the fundamentalist American Family Association (AFA), on Wednesday defended the practice of gender discrimination, saying that God “designed” women — and not men — to be secretaries.

On his Wednesday radio program, Fischer pointed out that liberals had argued that companies could use religion to discriminate on the basis of gender or to oppose the minimum wage if Hobby Lobby was allowed to use Christianity as a shield to deny birth control to its employees.

God designed women from Adam's rib bone to be a man's servant. That's your God given position in life. Glass ceiling. . .unequal pay. God wants that. That is some really screwed up God Fischer prays to. I wonder if his God believes in genocide, child human sacrifice and mass murder. . .of course that God does. Abraham and Noah!

Although the radio host admitted he had religious objections to the minimum wage, he said it preposterous to think that the Hobby Lobby case would open the door to other religious exemptions.

Religious objections to the minimum wage? What did Jesus say about it? I know! NOTHING!!! Absolutely nothing! But nice try there.

“Nobody is suing on those grounds!” he said. “And I’m going to tell you right now, I discriminated on the basis of gender when I was a pastor. I’m going to admit to you right now that I discriminated on the basis of gender.”

Hear that, any woman that worked for this clown. Here is a class action sexual discrimination lawsuit all wrapped up for you. There you go. IOKIYAR again.

How can any woman vote for these troglodytes?

Jennifer Stefano

The Koch Brothers and their sycophants are mighty thin skinned people. They get challenged than they pout, whine, cry and attack the messenger. Chris Hayes of MSNBC is the latest to get this treatment. Here's the video, from Mediaite.

Chris Hayes‘ show took a sharp turn Wednesday night when guest Jennifer Stefano, Pennsylvania state director for Americans for Prosperity, accused him of trying to “undercut the voice of a woman” and “making it personal” in his argument with her on the latest Obamacare extension. She raised her voice and scolded Hayes for talking over her, while a stunned Hayes insisted it had nothing to do because of her gender.

That's a neat trick. Put your accuser on the defensive by accusing them of something that easy to accuse, but difficult to refute. Since we don't know Chris Hayes's attitudes (well, we do. It's public record), just go on an irrational rant about something that means absolutely nothing. Stefano goes uber-loon rather quickly.

"How dare you, like Harry Reid, try to undercut the voice of a woman simply because she disagrees with you," she said. "How dare you!"

Hayes seemed very confused at first, and pleaded with her to "just be honest" about why she really "wakes up everyday and thinks about how to destroy Obamacare."


"You know nothing about me," she shouted. "You have no idea why I wake up in the morning.... You know nothing about me, you know nothing about my family. You don't know if I was born and raised in a trailer park."

"You have absolutely no idea about me or my life," she continued. "I don't care!"

Again, huh? You don't know why I wake up in the morning? To take a big shit? To take a shower? Maybe to get a good sniff of Folger's coffee and a Bear claw?

Were you born in a trailer park? Does it matter in this context?

"What are you talking about?" Hayes asked several times throughout the interview, even rolling his eyes at one point.

When you figure that out, Chris, let the world know?

So, let's backtrack: According to Jennifer Stefano:

01: Attacking AFP's position on the ACA is shutting women up.
02: She is a woman.
03: Chris Hayes is shutting her up.
04: You don't know me
05: You don't know me again.
06: Obamacare is the devil.

Makes perfect sense. If you're batshit crazy. (oops, a swear word. Hopefully, no one will get offended.)

Louie Gohmert

First of all, Lil Louie here is a permanent fixture on this list. He is pure comic gold each time he opens his brainless, empty mouth and burps out turds of wisdom. So, the Top Ten would like to nominate him for the first ever Hall of Fame of Conservative Idiocy. Welcome to the Hall, Louie. You'll have friends soon.

Anyway, the Texas dimbulb goes on Tony Perkins's screechfest to whine and complain about how the evil liberals are taking out their anti-God ideas on Hobby Lobby. See, Hobby Lobby can believe in God because
corporations can believe in God, just like people.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued on Wednesday that corporations like Hobby Lobby should be able to legally practice religion — and be able to deny birth control to women — if they were also subject to criminal prosecution under U.S. law.

Yes, imagine waking up every morning to go to church. There's Ms. Johnson. There's Mr. Peters. There's Mr. Hobby Lobby, looking similar and thinner than last week. He must have lost a few bricks on the side.

Watch Hobby Lobby genuflect before entertain the Pew. Then watch Hobby Lobby get on its knees and pray before God.

During an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, Gohmert said that he was “shocked” to hear the Obama administration say that corporations could not form religious beliefs during Tuesday’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court.

Okay, anyone notice the change. It went from corporations can legally practice religion to form religious beliefs.

Oh Great Hobby Lobby. Tell us when the rapture is coming. So I can buy a needlepoint of the rapture for $19.95 on aisle four.

“This is a Justice Department that has indicted corporations for forming intent to commit a crime,” the former Texas judge said. “Well, Tony, if you can as a corporation through your directors and officers, form the intent to commit a crime, then you can certainly, through your officers and directors form an intent to have religious beliefs.”

What. . .wait! This schmuck (oops, a swear word. Hopefully, no one will get offended) was a judge? Really? Truly? Ummm. . .only in Texas I guess?

“And if every one of your directors and officers has the same exact religious beliefs, whether your Amish and have formed a corporation or any other religious group — Quakers or whatever the group is — certainly a corporation can, if they can have intent as the Justice Department repeatedly proves in court, then they can certainly have religious beliefs.”

Tune in next week when Louie Gohmert tells us that not only corporations find God, but so to buildings, trees, rocks, snails and the occasional Republican caught with a male prostitute and a bag of meth and blow in a cheap motel room.

Ted Cruz

Ted “Talk” Cruz has been in the news a lot, namely because Ted Cruz loves to talk about anything that makes Ted Cruz more Ted Cruz so people get that good Ted Cruz goodness in their Tex Cruzy Ted Cruz. Today, Ted of Talk is coming to the Top Ten because he believes God loves everyone, so long as you believe, and if you don't believe, God's messengers on Earth can hate your sorry ass.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday explained to a group of children that atheists in the United States were working to take away their religious freedoms. Speaking at the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators, Cruz told parents and children as young as 3 that “school choice is the civil rights issue of the 21st century.”

Cruz repeated a conspiracy theory that the Convention on the Rights of the Child would allow the United Nations to take parenting decisions away from Americans. “Nothing in international law, nothing in any treaty should be used as a backdoor vehicle to undermine the rights of every parent here to raise your children consistent with your faith, with your good judgment and the love you have for your children,” he said.

What is this with these poor oppressed Christians? You want oppression? Go to Nigeria and see what Boko Haram does to Christians there. Go to Mali and see what the Islamic fundies near Timbuktu have done. Ted. . .no one taking Jesus away. Well, God did, but you love God. Or some form of God.

The possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate went on to cite a series of cases to assert that atheists were trying to destroy religious freedom in the United States. “We have never seen an administration with such hostility to religious faith,” Cruz opined. “You know, last year, there was a chaplain in the Air Force up in Alaska who wrote in a blog post the phrase ‘There are no atheists in fox holes.’ He was ordered by his supervising officer to take it down.”

That “joke” is always used. There are no atheists on test days in school. There are no atheists when you're waiting for an HIV test result. There's no atheists when two people are in bed about to orgasm. Most of the time, they are scream “Oh God, oh God, take me!”

The word is time and place, Teddy. Spouting a joke like that while in uniform isn't really protocol and the armed forces has the RIGHT and duty to tell that to the G.I.s But what is hard to understand is how the supervising officer and Obama are linked. Did the supervising officer run to Obama, point a finger and tattle on the chaplain? Are you accusing the Air Force of kindergarten, playground tactics? Does that mean I don't have to like you because you have cooties? And wear Skippies. . .and are eleventy-four years old?

CRUZ: “I guess it was deemed insensitive to atheists. I kind of thought it was the job of a chaplain to be insensitive to atheists.” After a round of applause, the senator added: “To welcome them into the forgiving arms of a loving god.”

Wow. . .look at the hypocrisy. It's okay to be insensitive to atheists so long as they come into the forgiving arms of a loving God. Hmmm. . .if you don't get your Godly fondling, then screw you, I hate you! And so does God. In fact, God told me to hate you.

How about that? Ted Cruz is the new Betty Bowers.

TD Bank of Cranford, NJ

Normally, going to a bank is rather painless and mundane. Go in, stand on line, do your work when the clerk calls you, leave. Simple. Services banks provide customers are for all bank customers, and if you aren't a bank customer, there is usually a nominal fee. However, apparently, an atheist's money and business are foul and evil, so TD Bank denied them public notary services.

Yes, you read that correctly. A public notary refused to notarize something because the person wanting the notary was an atheists.

The managing director of American Atheists, Inc. reported on Tuesday that she was refused notary service at a TD bank in Cranford, NJ because of her atheist affiliation.

In a post on Facebook, Amanda Knief wrote, “I was just refused service — because I am an atheist. It was embarrassing, humiliating, and it pissed me off.”

It would piss off anyone. So, now atheist is the new “black.” The US needs another Plessy V. Ferguson. Believer and Atheist drinking fountains, schools, buses, bathroom, banks, notaries. . .WTF!?!?!?!

Please tell us what happened, Ms. Knief.

According to Knief, she and American Atheists president David Silverman were in the process of getting documents notarized by one of the bank’s notaries public when the woman asked them what the documents were for.

Okay, reasonable. Why do you want the notary done? Most notaries don't ask this question, but maybe it's bank protocol to ask. Who knows? Please continue.

“The documents were charitable organizations registrations for American Atheists in several states,” wrote Knief. “So I told her what AA is about. She looked down, then looked at me and Dave Silverman and said she couldn’t sign the documents because of ‘personal reasons’ and went to find another notary who was eating his lunch to come do the authentications.”

“Personal reasons” is now the new, right wing way of saying “I don't want to do it because I am a racist, bigoted, intolerant, ignorant, worthless, two faced goober that will hide my ignorance behind anything that doesn't make me look like a complete troll.”

But it serves Ms. Knief right! After all, if she believed in a loving, forgiving God, nothing like this would happen. Because God loves believers and hates those that don't believe. And God told me to hate you for doing the horrible thing of asking “why.”

Don Smith

Remember back in the good old days when certain people say in the back of the bus and others were told to speak English or god home. Don Smith of Anchorage remembers. Remember when it was okay to beat the crap out of someone who spoke with a lisp or walked a little light in the loafers? Don Smith remembers. Remember when schools were better. Don Smith does and he know why they suck now. Give you a hint: It's them dang blasted furriners.

In a wide-ranging interview with Alaska Public Media, Don Smith, 75, repeatedly said immigrants--and in one case special needs students--were diverting the district’s resources away from other children. Smith, a Republican, is running to unseat incumbent Kameron Perez-Verdia in Tuesday’s Anchorage school board election. Smith has served on the commission that drafted the city’s charter, in the state house and in a number of other positions in Alaska government over the years.

It's all dem furriners and retards. If we can just section them off in the schools, life would be perfect. Then we can work on them homosexuals and atheists. After that, the Jews! We need more scapegoats for our failings. It's never us. We can never look in a mirror. It's all dem dang blasted furriners and retards.

Smith’s comments about immigrants and refugees came in response to a question from Alaska Public Media’s Daysha Eaton. Graduation rates have been rising and dropout rates were falling. What was behind that good news and is it sustainable, she asked.

Yes. There has to be a silver lining. Please, maybe you can come out of the skid and put the klanhood away, Mr. Smith. Enlighten us, please.

SMITH: There’s lots of problems that have been caused by organizations like the State Department that have somehow convinced Alaskans or Anchorage residents to accept two families a month from Africa and Indonesia to come in here totally unable to speak English, and give us the responsibility to try to educate these kids in the school system.

When I was in Anchorage High School, it was about 98 percent white students, and the balance were probably Native and one or two black students. Today we’re 48 percent white, 52 percent other. And that clearly is causing problems. I think our numbers are dropping because we’re importing all these people that aren’t up to the standards that we had set for the school. Consequently, it’s drawn us downward not upward.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. . . . . . . . .

While I pick my bottom jaw off the ground, please wrap your brains around his comment. N-bombs, paint wearing savages, non-English speaking foreigners, English speaking foreigners from places like Africa and Indonesia. . .Messicans, latinos, anyone not white. . .it's their fault because we have the responsibility to educate them.

There should be a place where they can go, sectioned off with barred wire and gun turrets that they can become productive members of white society. Maybe a motto over the door. . .something inspirational: Arbeit Macht Frei works.

Don Smith gives his sheet are hard time. Sometimes, he actually sleeps in them.

Ted Cruz Redux

In the shortest entire this week, Ted Cruz posted a poll on his Facebook (you know, because it's free) asking people if they are better now or before that horror of Obamacare happened.

Results were not as Ted wanted to see.




Well, there were a few people who said it didn't help them.

This is the definition of dumbass! Complete dumbass! Someone handed him a knife so he could spite his face.

Ted Nugent

And finally, look who's back. Ted “Cat Scratch Fever and nothing else. . .Ever” Nugent finishes this week with a bang. And when I say bang, I mean full on racist klansman bang. Not to belabor the point, but he has had the longest 15 minutes in history. I don't want my words to get into the glory that is Ted “I Shit my Pants to get out of Viet Nam” Nugent so let's let him talk. So, come on Ted, tell us some more of your turds of wisdom.

Ted Nugent on apartheid:

“Apartheid isn’t that cut-and-dry. All men are not created equal.”

Hmmm. . .so much for that Declaration of Independence idea. Damn Thomas Jefferson commie liberal pinko.

Ted Nugent on black South Africans:

“The preponderance of South Africa is a different breed of man. I mean that with no disrespect. I say that with great respect. I love them because I’m one of them. They are still people of the earth, but they are different. They still put bones in their noses, they still walk around naked, they wipe their butts with their hands. And when I kill an antelope for ‘em, their preference is the gut pile. That’s what they fucking want to eat, the intestines. These are different people. You give ‘em toothpaste, they fucking eat it…I hope they don’t become civilized. They’re way ahead of the game.”

You shit your pants to get out of serving in Viet Nam and screw underage girls because they are just so adorable. Notice the racism. Bone in the nose, eating toothpaste. I'm surprised he didn't say “yep, and them black people also pick through each other's hair and eat the lice they find.” Because you know when he talks about South Africa, he doesn't mean the white people.

Ted Nugent on using the n-word:

“I use the word nigger a lot because I hang around with a lot of niggers, and they use the word nigger, and I tend to use words that communicate…I don’t mean to offend. I’m a fun guy, not a sexist or racist.”

I use the word motherfucker a lot too. Especially when I am describing Ted Nugent (if a DU member posts they are offended by my use of motherfucker and not his use of the n-bomb,your priorities are really screwed up).

Maybe that's what we should call him from now now. Instead of Ted Nugent, just MF.er. As in “MF.er said another dumb thing.”

Ted Nugent on naming his tour the “Jap Whack Tour”:

“I mean no disrespect. I’m sure the Japanese are wonderful folks.”

Yeah, I mean, when they aren't, you know, being Japanese or something. I'm sure they are cute. Listen, bozo. . .if you put I mean no disrespect in the front of you words, you mean disrespect and should probably not say it.

Salon has more.

Welcome back, Ted. Now, you and Glenn Champ and Bill Kramer can go out together, find an underage girl, beat the snot out of her, fondle her breasts and have freaky, disgusting 60 year sex with her because. . .hey, Republicans are so full of love, they can't help getting a little of it on you.

Usually dripping down to your ankle.

See you next week.

Who are your three favorite heroes/heroines in literature?

For me, in order of #3 to #1 is simple:

#3: O-Lan (欧兰 from Pearl Buck's The Good Earth. This is a woman who gives her spirit and soul to a soul dead man who only really cares about his own gratitude. She raises children that view her poorly and dies alone while her husband entertains his concubine. She is the essence of purity in my eyes. And what happens to purity in an impure world.

#2: Jean Valjean from Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. I read the book long before watching the opera for the first time and the book really got to a man. Here is a man hunted and chased for a minor mistakes not only by the law, but by his own conscience for feeling he has never done enough to atone for his mistakes. Valjean has so little to dislike in a character or a hero that when he dies, you feel part of your heart die with him.

#1: Samwise Gamgee from JRR Tolkein's Lord of the Rings Triology. No other character shows true devotion and genuine caring for another as Samwise does for Frodo. Samwise is everything people should be to each other. And at the end, after years of taking care of Mr. Frodo, when he boards the white ship with Elrond, Bilbo and Gandalf, we feel and know that Samwise wants, one more time, to be the man to save and protect Frodo. As the ship leaves, Samwise feels part of himself leave with Frodo. Samwise Gamgee is probably the greatest heroic character in the history of literature.

Introduction to Chinese Medical Service

Okay. . .I have an abscess in my leg. I hurt myself and it got infected. No big deal. I've had them before. Staph infections are rather common and I know what to do.

So, at the insistence of the wife, I went to the foreigner section of the local hospital. This is my fifth time dealing with Chinese hospitals. . .first thing, doesn't matter if it's terrible or a good hospital, they are all the same.

We'll divide it up into sections:

Behind the registration booth is usually a rather frazzled overworked clerk that looks at you with a level of disdain that can range from mild annoyance to complete antipathy. They rarely make eye contact, take your paperwork out of your hands, slam the information into a computer, give you your "treatment book" and then demand 20-50RMB for the privilege of being registered. No, we have not going to triage yet. We haven't seen a nurse. We just got registered.

When you get to triage, the nurse doing it usually spends most of her time on her phone and ignores you completely. I say "her" because 95% of nurses in China are still women. Male nurses are EXTREMELY rare. If she could have you do everything, she would gladly let you. After that's done, you're down another 100RMB and we still haven't seen a doctor.

In the waiting from packed filled to overflowing is every type of disease and malady you can think of. This is the medical version of Grand Central Station. People are hanging out windows, spitting on the floor, smoking cigarettes next to a "no smoking" sign that has an ashtray under it and smelling a bathroom so ripe with ammonia it would make a dead person's eyes water. When the doctor sees you, expect a lightning fast consultation (less than five minutes) where the doctor won't make eye contact and doesn't listen to anything the patient says after the first sentence. See, in China, people just do what the doctor says without question. It's the norm here. You do, you don't think. You react, you don't proact, if that's even a word. When they an American who begins saying "wait, I need to know what's happening. Tell me what you're doing," the self-righteous indignation comes out and you get the attitude "I am the doctor, you are the patient. I outrank you." Now you're down another 150RMB. So, 300RMB and you haven't done one thing medical yet.

Hospitals will always put inpatient service for everything. Doctors here are 1/2 medical "professionals" and 1/2 salesman. They actually get a small commission on the amount of patients they can intake. So it is in their financial interests to push expensive in-patient service to everyone. . .and get every angry when you say "No, I don't think I need to be intaked. I've had this before. Outpatient is just fine."

Moving on, if you want a bed or a wheelchair, good luck finding one. And if you do, they are under lock and key. See, people have stolen them before. Well, that's the urban legend. I can't imagine someone being able to steal a mobile hospital bed, but stranger things have happened.

This does not exist. Your hospital room is a prison cell. Literally. No TV, no internet, no nothing. Also, it's a dead zone for cell phone service, so no texting anyone. All you can do is watch the paint dry.

On top of that, the nurse will only come into take vitals. You need to go somewhere, your family has to take you. If you need to eat, your family needs to buy you food. If you need to get an examination, the nurse will point you in the general direction and then go back to her paperwork. If you get lost, it's on you. Why don't you understand what I said to you?

So, food given to patients is not medically appropriate (imagine just having a coronary eating super salty food) and all medical services given to you must be given to you by people who no medical training (your family). Add to that the rooms are filthy, the windows might be broken, there is no climate control, no insulation to keep the cold out and the heat in. . .and people smoking EVERYWHERE! Even in rooms with oxygen tanks.

Now comes the doctor. . .he will see you at most five minutes day, ask you a question or two and then walk away. No examination, no real medical service. Just a cursory, perfunctory attempt to do something that shows the appearance they they are doing their job. Oh, and don't ask to see their medical license or their medical degree. They will get angry and say things like "No one ever asked me for that. How rude" or "I'm a doctor. Accept it." or "What do you know what you're looking at if I let you see it?"

Usually, they push the most expensive brand name they can because that makes the hospital the most money. Even if the generic works just as well, the brand name is always pushed. It also doesn't help that the word "Generic" in Chinese means "common" and no one wants the common medicine, because common medication is bad. Try explaining that they are the same and people look at you cross eyed and give you "well, maybe you're right, but this is China." The usual excuse for anything said to people here that challenges a few of their fairy tale urban legend notions.

Chinese people are not involved in their treatment. Most go to hospital assuming they will die and are just lying there waiting for death. Giving up is easy, because hospitals are where people go to die.

Remember that Hippocratic Oath? That doesn't apply in China. Pay first, pay again, pay immediately, then the doctor will see you, so long as you have the invoice and receipt to prove you paid.

China has one of the most screwed up health insurance ideas, namely because it is an unregulated new industry and no laws have been made to reign it in. Here's how it works:

1: Pay all bills immediately to the hospital
2: Get your official invoices with the red stamp
3: Contact your Insurance company's English speaking phone line (hahahahahaha. That doesn't happen. My medical Chinese is terrible so if my wife is unavailable, I have to do it).
4: Get the insurance claim form.
5: Fill it in and total everything. One oversight will cancel the claim.
6: Mail it in with all invoices.
7: Wait two to three weeks.
8: Get an email saying if your claim has been approved or denied. If Denied, there is no recourse.
9: If approved, the insurance company will reimburse into your bank account, after the deductible, 80% of the invoice through direct deposit.

Yes, it is as annoying and inefficient as it sounds.

This is medical care here. Pure capitalism. Most hospitals are private, money making ventures for universities, business, corporations or just a private rich fat cat that see gold in someone's suffering.

The public ones are just miserable beyond recognition.
