Mispeaking-expert Todd Aiken was invited by Gomer to be a guest on his radio show to explain his ground-breaking biological theories.
Gomer throws Aiken a rehabilitating life-preserver (so to speak) and asks him if he meant forceable rape when he said Legitimate Rape, which as everyone knows is about a 7 or 8 on the Rape Severity Scale. You know, more severe than regretting in the morning that you bagged the best man at your friend’s wedding and less severe than women in occupied countries or something because it is all about sluts using their naughty bits for fun and causing the downfall of mankind and being thrown out of the Garden of Eden and whatnot. Praise Jeebus!
There’s nothing like an old white guy telling us that he gets how serious rape is, and that bitches need to take it to term.
Also/Too: Is Gomer really saying that rapists’ babies become admirable human beings, and that’s why you want to have them?
The 9:00 minute mark begins a priceless word salad about how rescuing rapist babies is the same as running into the World Trade Center to rescue people from terrorism.
You cannot make this shit up.
Famous former fattie Mike Huckabee is so riled up at The Muppets for abandoning notorious diabetes-causing chain fast-food restaurant Chick-Fil-A that he is calling for all Jeebus-loving homophobes to come out in support of Fried Chicken and Waffle sammiches in a fight against Bert sleeping with Ernie:
“I have been incensed at the vitriolic assaults on the Chick Fil-A company because the CEO, Dan Cathy, made comments recently in which he affirmed his view that the Biblical view of marriage should be upheld. The Cathy family, let by Chick Fil-A founder Truett Cathy, are a wonderful Christian family who are committed to operating the company with Biblical principles and whose story is the true American success story. Starting at age 46 Truett Cathy built Chick Fil-A into a $4 billion a year enterprise with over 1600 stores. At 91, he is still active in the company, but his son Dan runs it day to day as CEO.It’s a great American story that is being smeared by vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry from the left.
So got that? Vicious hate speech and intolerant bigotry in the name of faith is okay. But saying you won’t support someone because of their anti-gay stance is bullying. Oooo-kay…
I ask you to join me in speaking out on Wednesday, August 1 “Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day.” No one is being asked to make signs, speeches, or openly demonstrate.
That’s good because most of your radio followers cannot write. But I’m only guessing.
The goal is simple: Let’s affirm a business that operates on Christian principles and whose executives are willing to take a stand for the Godly values we espouse by simply showing up and eating at Chick Fil-A on Wednesday, August 1.
“I’m Gomer, and I approve this unpaid advertisment from one of my sponsors.“
Too often, those on the left make corporate statements to show support for same sex marriage, abortion, or profanity, but if Christians affirm traditional values, we’re considered homophobic, fundamentalists, hate-mongers, and intolerant.
Gomer, that is because your follower’s values are homophobic, fundamentalist, hate-mongering and intolerance. You are confusing cause and effect again.
This effort is not being launched by the Chick Fil-A company and no one from the company or family is involved in proposing or promoting it.
No, but you can sure bet that your radio ad salespeople will be shaking them down and reminding them of the free ad they got from you.

Oh those Xristian Xrazies are so funny!
Boss Hogg says that he is not running for preznint in 2012:
“I will not be a candidate for president next year. This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided.
“Hundreds of people have encouraged me to run and offered both to give and raise money for a presidential campaign. Many volunteers have organized events in support of my pursuing the race. Some have dedicated virtually full time to setting up preliminary organizations in critical, early states and to helping plan what has been several months of intensive activity.
“I greatly appreciate each and every one of them and all their outstanding efforts. If I have disappointed any of them in this decision, I sincerely regret it.
“A candidate for president today is embracing a ten-year commitment to an all-consuming effort, to the virtual exclusion of all else. His (or her) supporters expect and deserve no less than absolute fire in the belly from their candidate. I cannot offer that with certainty, and total certainty is required.
“This decision means I will continue my job as Governor of Mississippi, my role in the Republican Governors Association and my efforts to elect a new Republican president in 2012, as the stakes for the nation require that effort to be successful.”
Translation: “The FEC would be on my finances like a duck on a June Bug.”
Well, the comic value of the 2012 Goat Rodeo just dimmed a little bit, but I suspect that Boss Hogg still has a role to play, if nothing else than with getting Gomer elected.
“I cannot imagine as an American being told that I could not live in certain places in America because I was Christian, or because I was white, or because I spoke English,” Huckabee said. “I would be outraged if someone told me that in my country, I would be prohibited and forbidden to live in a part of that country, for any reason.” … Palestinians who live in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, Huckabee said, should settle in “territory that [is] in the hands of Muslims, in the hands of Arabs,” as determined by the “international community.”
Um, Gomer? You might want to crack open a history book.
Remember the other day when Gomer said that gays getting married was icky? Me neither!
But the professor that Gomer cited as his source for the ick factor when Gomer said it was why no one wanted to legalize marriage equality, is demanding an apology:
“I have never used the phrase ‘ick factor’ in any of my three books dealing with the emotion of disgust, or in any articles,” Nussbaum wrote… Thus the people to whom the term “projective disgust” applies are the insecure and emotionally stunted people who campaign against equal rights for gays and lesbians, not gays and lesbians themselves.
Mr. Huckabee has gotten bad information about my work and has completely turned its meaning upside down, imputing to me a position (that gays and lesbians are disgusting) that I criticize as childish and morally deficient,” she wrote. Huckabee “owes me a public apology,” she added.
Remember the other day when MPS told you about how Huckabee discussed the ick factor in gay relationships? Me neither!
Well, anyway, Gomer is now defending the use of the ick factor saying that:
My use of the phrase ‘ick factor’ was as the established notion from within the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Transgender (GLBT) community. It was not an indication of personal aversion, but rather a reference to an established phrase used mostly from same-sex marriage advocates and militants – not one I created… This phrase is not new. This phrase is not mine.
TPM tells us…
He cites work by Martha Nussbaum and Joseph Erbentraut which uses the phrase.
But Nussbaum coined the phrase to describe aversion to the idea of two men having sex. Her theory — according to the Erbentraut article Huckabee cites — is that much conservative opposition to gay rights is based on a feeling of disgust.
Silly Gomer! Doesn’t he know that it is discussed in detail Icklesiatics in the Bible?
Given that the source of that statement is Gomer, who also thinks that God calls him on his cell phone and whose children torture dogs and bring weapons on planes, well, perhaps in a relative way this might true for his experience.
Presented without comment:
Presidential hopeful and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R), in an interview with a college magazine, said the country shouldn’t “experiment” by allowing gay couples to adopt children.
“I think this is not about trying to create statements for people who want to change the basic fundamental definitions of family,” Huckabee told The Perspective, a magazine at The College New Jersey. “And always we should act in the best interest of the children, not in the seeming interest of the adults.”
“Children are not puppies,” he said. “This is not a time to see if we can experiment and find out, how does this work?”
Huckabee also compared gay marriage to drug use, incest and polygamy.
