GOP, John Kasich, John McCain, Libya, Michele Bachmann, minimum wage, Mitt Romney, New Hampshire, Ohio, teabaggers, unions
I fear for there will never be a day again on planet earth that is not weighed down with the collective sluggishness of the stupid element.
I still wonder at the insanity of the GOP. With the polling decidedly against them, they continue on blithely with their agenda. Case in point was John Kasich, governor of Ohio and designated spokesperson to “respond” to the President’s weekly speech.
Kasich, the second most disliked GOP governor, only silly Scott in Florida fares worse, rattled off the usual GOP talking points of “lower taxes on corporations (oops, I meant job creators) and relief from regulations” and then took to slamming the unions once more as “job killers”.
Now Kasich, faced with a landslide of anger at his attempt to Wisconsinite unions in his state, chose to do that. I mean with full knowledge that he is gonna lose in his own state on that very issue. Did the GOP hold a gun to his head? Or is he just that stoopid?
Kasich, by the way, tried to get the progressives to come in to “discuss” the union issue now that it is quite clear it will be overturned by the people. Of course the progressives smiled and said no thanks. No stoopid there.
Meanwhile, New Hampshire’s GOP controlled legislature continues to waste its people’s time. In a worthless move, it eliminated the minimum wage in the state, saying that it was wasted on the teens who weren’t “worth” minimum wage, and besides, minimum wages are “job killers.” Yes, I agree, every corporation would love to employ people for a dollar a day if they could. And, more to the point, NH’s minimum wage is the same as the federal one, and that now simply takes over. So nothing changes morons, except you have pointed out again that you care only for the rich and their “victimization at the hands of the poor.” Stoopid here.
Did ya hear? Mitty (I’ve been running for years”) Romney is tearing down his 3,000 square foot beach house in La Jolla, California to make way for a new and improved $12 million dollar one that comes in with a sweet 11,000 square feet of bliss. Not in yet is whether he will insist on non-union labor. I guess he can argue that he’s just being a good job creator. Somehow I suspect this will not sit much better than Johnny “mean old man” McCain’s inability to remember exactly how many homes he owned, or should I say his trophy wife owned. Way up on the stoopid scale Mitty.
Ricky, (aww shucks I could do the job) Perry must think we are stoopid. He wrote a book called Fed Up in which he argues that nearly all of the social programs of the last 70 or so years are actually unconstitutional. Although the book is only nine months old, his staff is already trying to claim that it reflected his views then but not now. Except that when Perry was confronted by a voter in Iowa about entitlement programs, he snapped, “read my book!” No it’s Ricky who is stoopid.
Two relics of evolutionary failure, Johnny (I hate the world for not electing me President) McCain, and his obnoxious bunk buddy Lindsay (I dream of Johnny with the light blond hair) Graham, has the audacity to praise Europe and the Middle East for their actions against the Qaddafi regime. This while they “regret the delay caused by the insufficient air power offered by the US. Is there ANYTHING ON EARTH THAT YOU JACKASSES WOULD APPLAUD THIS PRESIDENT FOR? It would be a pleasure to strap both of you to a nice little rocket and send you both to Qaddafi with a ribbon tied to your genitals gentlemen. ( the full statement can be viewed here.) You’re both stoopid, and one of you knows it.
Michele (aww I just hate your guts Perry) Bachmann, is excusing her multiple gaffes by a “busy schedule”. I suppose that is an answer, though what in the world does she think the President’s schedule might be like? I would put it down to that she’s just stoopid. Bachmann is reported to have offered to show her panties if the media would stop covering Ricky Perry so much. (remember stretching the incredulity muscle!)
I do believe I could make this stuff up and you wouldn’t know the difference. It’s just that stoopid out there.
Hey. Mitt probably needs to expand is California home to make room for all his future wives. He’s Mormon don’t cha know, and guess what the first thing he’s gonna legalize is. Not same sex marriage 🙂
Ya think? He’s a dang polygamist? Oh gosh wouldn’t that be a hoot.

I gag constantly these days. When I’m not gagging, I’m spitting or screaming. There is too much stoopid and too many people who can’t see it around them. Yes, Mitt tries to slam Obama for his Martha’s Vineyard vacation and then he blithely decides to bulldoze his perfectly acceptable home and put up a compound where they all can drink the koolaid and partee. Yes, he NEEDS this 11,000 square foot home. NEEDS it. Tell that to the person squeezing their five kids into a home the size of his bathroom. He is a vile, disgusting man. Make him go away.
Rick Perry thinks it’s fine to employ all those nice Mexicans to shingle the roofs of the multi-thousand dollar homes in TX but god (HIS GOD) forbid they get one social service out of him. Good luck with distancing yourself from your present. Your past is your present, you a-hole.
Gawd, I’m cursing and ranting. But it is so damn painful to see what’s going on. Kasich: You will be going away.
Ain’t talking about politics just the best? It keeps your blood flowing! I get so mad sometimes I wish I was 25 again and could just move the wilds of Alaska and get off the grid and ignore them all. Or Hawaii…Thinking…Hawaii…I like where it’s warm. lol
My friend Barbara’s uncle had a saying: If stupid people could fly, you’d never see the sun.
Thanggod these idiots aren’t on the wing: we’d need the world’s most gigantic umbrellas against all the doo-doo that would rain down on our heads.
I wonder how many Mes’kins Romney will admit to hiring to build his new palace? Because you don’t build a multi-million dollar estate in the bordery ville of La Jolla without picking up some of us brown folk at one of the local Home Depeaux.
At least he and Rick W. Perrybush will have something to bond over at the next Filthy Rich Helmet Hair convention.
You’re uncle was a genius. And I also love “Filthy Rich Helmet Hair” On yeah…too funny girl.

The ‘s’ word is here to stay, I’m afraid – the stupid by definition are ignorant because they cannot be taught. If they were merely ignorant folk with real brains there would at least be grounds for hope.
This is why Plato feared democracy. And Jefferson too, I think. Because when the stupids get more than 50%, it’s over for the rest of the people – the stupids play ‘majority rule’ with a passion and think it’s the essence of Democracy. But it isn’t. Every Democrat House member represents tens of thousands of real Americans (of both parties) while the Republican House members seem only to represent their own voters.
Stupids play winner-take-all – the kind of thinking that led to civil war in Yugoslavia when the 49% Serb population believed simply on principle that they must strike out and kill because they could expect no justice from the other 51% of the population.
GW Bush acted like he thought the President of the United States is supposed to have a constituency other than simply THE WHOLE AMERICAN PEOPLE – whom the President is bound by the Constitution to represent. that is a serious misunderstanding and yet most Rethugs believe they only serve their voters, not their district populations.
Indeed, we haven’t really had the conversation about how one represents their “constituency” . All or only those who voted for you? As they would wish or are they hiring your independent expertise? I think we are really confused about this in the US. Time we had a nice chat about it. Maybe tomorrow I can go in that direction.
It’s Tuesday now, and I don’t expect the stoopid to recede any time soon. Mornings are overcast with a 60% chance of batshit, though.
You betcha. It just gets stooopider.
//if stupid people could fly, you’d never see the sun// ….
