A Hodge Podge of Republican Idiocy

Credit: Andrew Howe

Here are a few various items from the Republican Idocy Tank….

Mitt Romney stupid quotes:

“I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life.” Romney’s campaign later said he’d been hunting twice, once when he was 15, and once in 2006 at a Republican fundraiser.

“I’m not a big-game hunter. I’ve made that very clear. I’ve always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will.”

“I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.” Romney’s campaign later admitted that they didn’t march on the same day, or in the same city.

“We should double Guantanamo!”

“Hugo Chavez has tried to steal an inspiring phrase ‘Patria o muerte, venceremos.’ It does not belong to him. It belongs to a free Cuba.” –invoking a phrase that translates to “Fatherland or death, we shall overcome,” which Fidel Castro has used to close his speeches for years, and which is associated with Cuban oppression.

Mr. Foster Friess, the super pac funder behind Rick Santorum tells Andrea Mitchell how contraceptives should be used on MSNBC on 2/16/12. The best part is Andrea’s reaction:

Rush Limbaugh (Radio): “…as I’ve been saying the past couple of weeks, if you’re looking for a conservative who is the least corrupted, who has the least number of periods of wandering off the reservation, if you’re looking for a conservative who’s never sat down with Nancy Pelosi on the couch for any reason, you get Rick Santorum. And people know this.

Andrew Brietbart (Publisher-Videographer) loses it at an Occupy rally. Now, everyone behave yourself, you filthy freaks!

Grover Norquist (which this is more frightening than humorous):

“All we have to do is replace Obama. …  We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don’t need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go. We want the Ryan budget. … We just need a president to sign this stuff. We don’t need someone to think it up or design it. The leadership now for the modern conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate.”

Of course, the GOP Kicks Women Out Of Contraception Debate – Says It’s About Religion Not Women

Another Stupid-Sheriff Story
Joe Arpaio Sets Judgment Day For President Obama And His Birth Certificate

Yet another Obama-hater who is damned determined to “prove” that Obama is not an American-born citizen. On March 1st, he will proudly produce what has been mostly hush-hush about the probe, but has promised his “birther” posse will deliver a “shock” with its findings on the conspiracy theory that’s been continuously debunked for several years now. According to the sheriff, two twins — the Nordyke twins — were born on August 5, 1961 at the same hospital as the president. August 5, 1961, is one day after President Obama was (allegedly — if you ask a “birther”) born in Hawaii. The twins’ birth certificates can be found on microfiche documents that the sheriff says are on file with the Hawaii Department of Health, or some Hawaiian government agency.

Meanwhile, Joe Arpaio’s mishandling of several hundred sex crimes continues to spread.

I’m waiting for Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and Yeti to be revealed.

And people vote Republican… why????


  1. Sounds like Norquist would be quite content with the village idiot as the next GOP president (consider this year’s candidates). Why not just a giant pen-wielding robot to sign (Republican-approved) legislation. “Anybody but Obama” is a terrifying way for an entire political party to conduct itself, and the last two years are a prime example of the type of government that approach will get us.

    I’m still slack-jawed about that contraception panel not including any women and kicking out the one who showed up to testify. The whole controversy is not a “war on religion” — it’s a war on women!

  2. If there was real justice in this world, from now until the end of his days, whenever Foster Friess wanted sex from a woman, she would say “Not now – I have a headache and I need to put a Bayer aspirin between my knees.”

    You said “GOP just wants a lackey as POTUS so they can control from behind the curtain.” This is nothing new, and how we got both Ronald Reagan and GW Bush, but it seems like their standards for their lackey figure head get lower with every new election cycle.

    Yes, the far right social conservative family values crowd of the GOP, best exemplified by Rick Santorum and his following, is absolutely declaring a war against secular and progressive women. Using religion in general and specifically the Catholic church hierarchy, is just a smoke screen.

    “Birthers” are some of the worst of the fanatically deranged, and beneath comment.

      • Not to worry, because I’m on my good behavior tonight! Lol – However, even if you did literally suck as a politician, you sure wouldn’t be the first, except that the ones that do, are usually men who publicly support “family values” and oppose gay marriage and gay rights, when they’re not too busy sucking in private…

    • I doubt it. They provide good blogging material – but I would rather have a sane politician than blogging material any day. Regular society provides enough of that on it’s own.

    • Well, I’ll be darned. It most certainly is! Thanks for the okay – I grabbed it off of Facebook and someone else removed your copyright and put their site on it. It’s a great photo! Out of curiosity, though… how did you find it on my site?

      • Its out there in millions of places – I posted it a year or so on FLICKR as protected and it has been grabbed by a bunch of people. Viral is an understatement. I do a search every once in a while just to see if there are any interesting uses and to make sure its just used for fun and no one is profiting from it. The only one I had done myself is here (when you see it you will understand why I like it on your blog):

        • Right on!!! Love you version!

          Still, how did you find it on my site? Had you seen it before like this? Since my images are titled as to what they are, then I could see it coming up in a search.

          And thanks for the okay. When someone discovers I have one of their photos and no credit given (only because I didn’t know who to give credit to), then I always abide by their wishes. Just as I would hope someone does for my photos. Speaking of which, I will caption your Flickr link – without the added graphics. 🙂

  3. I just do a google image search every once in a while and it lights up like a pinball machine. If I see something interesting I click on it …….. that is how I found your site. Andy

    • LOL… well, welcome! Glad you stopped by. I am very opinionated, as are many of my readers. But we keep it all civil with one another. I’ve had a few women oppose the war on women – which shocks me. And I ask them to explain their points, but they never do.

  4. Don’t get me started – my mom worked for Planned Parenthood in the 70’s when I was in High School so I have lived their family cause – I cancelled the flowers I send her every month when they did not pull the Limbaugh ads because I felt it was an insult to her – I reinstated when they pulled the ads. To be fair, I am not a Bill Maher fan either – there is enough hate in this world.

    • Planned Parenthood is what kept me from being a single teenage mother. I started having sex at 15 (was lucky there for several months). Then when I turned 16 and got my license (1981) I immediately called PP and set up an appt to get birth control pills. I couldn’t go to my mother – she was too old school. So PP saw me, did the exam, and I used them for many many years. Through college until I finally got my first job and insurance. I will always support them.

  5. Let me know if you want the baby image of Obama (my chest) and Republican party (my cousin’s chest) – I’ll email it to you

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
