Seriously, WTF? Why would anyone in the public eye think it is acceptable to accuse our military of being traitors?
I think what you've got hold of there is what is commonly referred to as "a joke". Admittedly, one in bad taste, but I don't think he was claiming that Sgt. Rock would literally pop a cap in Nancy Pelosi.

Like how the conservatives were so quick to give a generous reading to Kerry's joke about Bush getting stuck in Iraq? I don't see any reason to give a generous reading to these statements.

We'll have to agree to disagree, I guess.

Oh, its nothing more than a really, really bad and stupid joke. But I have to wonder if he really and truly believes that the average Iraqi-deployed grunt shares his contempt. That has to be the number one cherished myth of the rightarded.

Move over Michelle! There's a new batshit lady in town! (ok, she's been around forever and has been batshit forever, but she's not as young and pretty as Bachman and so doesn't get the coverage).

Virginia Foxx: Story of Matthew Shepard's Murder A "Hoax" (VIDEO)

Disgusting vermin.

Oh, and...





Elsewhere, Byron York doesn't think black people are people too.

York: Obama is “Actually” Not So Popular, Because Some People Who Like Him Are Black

I guess all the white people who supported white presidents get their popularity counted, but for some reason, black people who support a black president don't count at all.

Disgusting vermin. But I repeat myself.

Holy crap these people are insulting. They must have total contempt for the voters' intelligence to say such trollingly stupid and nakedly hateful things.

I would like to see a decent opposition party. Maybe we can find one among the Greens or the Libertarians.

If you were on an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Osama bin Laden, and a soldier with two bullets in his weapon, I'm guessing that makes you strangled.

Since strangling is a very personal and difficult way to kill someone, I think Pelosi actually is the lesser of those evils. Right?

Pelosi is no hero of mine, don't get me wrong, and I don't find the joke offensive. But there's something broken in you if you find that genuinely funny. You're not a psycho or anything, you just don't understand what is funny about humor and why- if it has the rhythm and pattern of a joke, and the target is correct, you will laugh reflexively. That still doesn't make it funny.

Edit- I mean the "royal" you here, and not dropzone.

Well, I'm sure next time Der Trihs shares with us his views of the military, everyone defending Feherty will defend him as well.

Heads up on the possible next Stupid Republican Attack of the Day*: grumblings about President Obama's asking for a screening of the new Star Trek movie. So far (as far as I know) the whining has only appeared at RedState (which is a slightly more intelligent brand of stupid, which isn't saying much, because they're all a bunch of loonballs too, but compared to the freepers they're geniuses), and I'm not going to link to RedState, so I'll link to the post at DU that referenced it.

I realize that President Obama is the first president to ever screen movies at the White House (well, other than Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush) but really, it's not that big a deal. He is a Star Trek fan, and it's not like he can go down to the local multiplex to catch it without the Secret Service causing a big stir, which would get complained about too. Hey, I saw it, it's a fantastic movie. I can't blame President Obama for wanting to see it too.


*that is, if President Obama's funny and surprisingly pointed barbs made at the White House Correspondents Dinner don't cause a bunch of heads to explode first. By the time his jokes get hashed out and gnashed over (with some vitriol thrown Wanda Sykes' way too), the screening might be forgotten.

Stupid Republican Meme of the Day

(which others will probably pick up once they stop whining about Wanda Sykes)

Started by duly elected loonball Pete "We could learn a lot from the Taliban insurgency!" Sessions:

Quote:
Sessions told the Times that Obama's plan is to "diminish employment and diminish stock prices." By doing so, Obama "intended to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it" as part of a "divide and conquer" strategy to consolidate power.
And now picked up by the Leader of the Republican Party himself, Rush Limbaugh:

Quote:
LIMBAUGH: As the economy performs worse than expected, the deficit for the 2010 budget year beginning in October will worsen by $87 billion to $1.3 trillion. The deterioration reflects lower tax revenues and higher costs for bank failures, unemployment benefits and food stamps. But in the Oval Office of the White House none of this is a problem. This is the objective. The objective is unemployment. The objective is more food stamp benefits. The objective is more unemployment benefits. The objective is an expanding welfare state. And the objective is to take the nation’s wealth and return to it to the nation’s quote, “rightful owners.” Think reparations. Think forced reparations here if you want to understand what actually is going on.
So, it's all a Grand Plan by President Obama! Plunge the country into Darkness, give all the white people's money to the blacks, then Take Over (for life, I assume)! Brilliant!

Koo koo Koo koo Koo koo.

It's nice to know I was wrong about the Star Trek screening though. Damn, I bet RedState is mad they couldn't get that one going.

The latter. In the past, though, they were more comfortable crazies, and generally spoke with well-modualted voices, giving the appearance of sanity. Now they're getting desperate and more shrill, and hence they sound crazier.

That is the Stupid Republican Idea of the Century. Actually, it might just be the Stupid Idea of the Century.

I might write to the DNC and suggest that they pass a resolution redesignating the Republican Party as the Republican Douchebag Party.

This story has been floating around for a few weeks, so it doesn't really count as today's stupid idea. But it really is a primo stupid idea. Calling a special meeting for the specific purpose of trashing the other party, and apparently with nothing else on the agenda.

I must say this is one of my favorite ongoing threads. The Republicans are entertaining me every single day, and often exceeding their daily quota of one stupid idea.

Actually, it sounds like a precis of a Democratic campaign platform.

Access to healthcare for all Americans. Job creation. Equal opportunity for education and affordable secondary education.

It's a rhetorical towel toss.

You folks have missed the news. This is the group that started the "listening session" tour to get input from "normal Americans". Then Limbaugh trashed that idea, saying they need to do "teaching sessions" instead. Now Cantor has repudiated the "listening" idea -- interesting in that the whole thing was supposed to be non-partisan, but that was a sham from day one.

Since the Republicans have decided they don't need any more input, I'm pretty sure this organization is going to die a quiet death.

I was thinking the "National Council for a New America" already existed; we just refer to it as "the last election".

Nope, brand new. From the link in post 183:

Quote:
House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement upon releasing a letter announcing the formation of the National Council for a New America, a forward-looking, grassroots caucus intended to bring together Congressional leaders with a national panel of experts...

[From the letter]

...However, this is not a Republican-only forum. While we will be guided by our principles of freedom and security, we will seek to include more than just our ideas. This forum will include a wide open policy debate that every American can feel free to participate in. We do this not just to offer an alternative point of view or to be disagreeable.
Story was written on April 30.

IIRC about the corverage of the first "listening session", there were several subject areas that were declared off-limits in advance, such as abortion. So even before Rush brought them out to the woodshed, they were already not fulfilling the promises of their, er, founding document.

Maybe when they listened (that's a pretty good joke right there) they didn't like what they heard?

As far as teaching, meh. Limbaugh can't teach me anything. He'd have to know something first, and that would be a "first" for him. Really. What can he teach me?

Patriotism? I have my honorable discharge, he had a boil on his ass. I work in government, and worked "defense" in the private sector.

Clean living? I'm not the one strung out on pills.

Honesty? Ummm don't think so.

Loyalty to Fearless Leader? He used to preach that UNTIL his boy wan't in charge anymore so that's a wash too.

I don't feel like going through a huge giant list right now, so that's enough.

No, nothing to see there.

Can we take up a collection to hire a bodyguard for Rush? if anything happens to that guy, the Republicans might actually act on such radical ideas as listening to voters, and then where would we be?

Or maybe not. Remember last year when the Republicans were so upset about how the American public refused to listen to their insistence that everyone was doing well in the great Bush economy?

That's good, but I move that the DNC rename the Republicans to "Fucking Babies". I believe that MSNBC would technically be obliged to use the new name, and it might spread all over the mainstream media.

"Congressional Democrats today passed sweeping health care reform in spite of the Fucking Babies in congress voting nearly unanimously against the wildly popular bill, claiming that nobody had listened to their ideas."
