One Lump of Stupid or Two, Gov. Walker?

"Where are the rabbits, George?"

“Tell me about the rabbits, George.”

From the Andrew Breitbart School of Journalism (no link for obvious reasons, emphasis mine) via Digby:

“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a likely 2016 GOP presidential candidate, pledged to protect American workers from the economic effects, not only of illegal immigration but also of a massive increase in legal immigration.”

I’m not really sure of the policy that they are claiming Scott Walker, the wall-eyed git hired to enrich the Koch Brothers fortune, does any such thing, but to come out against legal immigration takes a special kind of stupid when your party is already at fourth and forty with hispanic voters. Is it already time to punt?

Damn, the plan was so flawless, to “get the illegals to jimmy the election.” Who ratted us out?

Rake Stepping For Speed and Accuracy: Jeb Edition

jeb-moose-earsThe Smart Bush® continues to display the family talent for finding all the rakes in the room:

During a private event on Saturday in Iowa, the former Florida governor was asked, in Spanish, about President Barack Obama’s executive actions; in Spanish, he explained that he supported a path to citizenship for “DREAMers” but that it should be created by law rather than by decree, “because that’s like a Latin American dictator.”

Which of course begs the question of why Wingnuttia, which controls both houses of Congress doesn’t just do it, and the Latin Dictator remark seems sort of weird, but we digress. Anyway, NotChimpy was confronted by a DREAMER and impressively they had an exchange in what sounds like fluid Spanish. Asked later, what did he say in Spanish…

When reporters asked Bush later to clarify if he would repeal immigration-related executive actions such as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents before a law could be passed, the former Florida governor sidestepped the question.

“We need to change the law,” he said.

“That’s exactly what I said this afternoon,” Bush said. “We need to do this by law, not by executive order.”

But here is the video of his encounter in Spanish, and here is the translation:

DREAMER: Will it be your priority to end DACA and DAPA?

BUSH: End what?


BUSH: DACA? What is…

DREAMER: You said you would stop the president’s overreach. Are you referring to DACA and DAPA?

BUSH: (inaudible) We need to pass it as a law. (inaudible)

DREAMER: OK, so you have plans to end DACA and DAPA? To do away with those programs?

BUSH: DACA is for… the program for the DREAMers. No. Let’s give them priority to be citizens. But by the law, not by decree, because that’s like a Latin American dictator.

DREAMER: Yes but will you take away the programs? So for a person like me, who qualifies for DACA, you are going to take away all our opportunities?

BUSH: No. what I am saying is, I wrote a book…

DREAMER: Yes, but recently you said you were going to do away with that program, DACA.

BUSH: Exactly, and pass a law so there’s permanence. What DACA does is it’s only for two years, no more. The problem continues after that.

THWACK – Let’s give them priority to be citizens. That’s gonna leave a mark.

Your 3-Martini Stupid

Novelty 2016 Goat Rodeo contender Ben Carson ominously suggests that The Kenyan Usurper is guilty of TREASON! because he won’t give in to Y’all Qaeda’s demands to deport 11 million people.

“He wants us to be one of the boys. He wants us to be just like everybody else. That’s why he’s letting all these people with Ebola in. There’s no reason why we should take on the African diseases. He should stop them when they get off the plane and not let them in. We don’t want some of these foreign ideas and diseases and people who don’t believe in self-government.”

Claim Chowder: Santorum-style (ew, gross!)


Hey guys, remember that time that frothy mix of lube and fecal matter Rick ‘Google Me’ Santorum told us that all of the jobs created since the year 2000 (all 6 million of ’em) went to legal immigrants and no one else? (for old time’s sake, say it with me: “Me Neither!”) — Guess what? He was fibbing again!

Babs-the-Impaler Raised Polite Boys


This is almost a parody:

In a speech to the National Association of Auto Dealers, Bush tackled the question of undocumented immigrants already in this country head-on, but politely.

“First and foremost, we need to control our border,” Jeb declared. “A great nation needs to control its border, not just at the border, which is hugely important.”

Then he gets right to that thorny question of those who are in this country already. After informing the audience that 40 percent of undocumented immigrants are those who came into the country legally but whose visas have expired, he delivered the verdict.

“We ought to be able to figure out where they are and politely ask them to leave.”

“Be sure to shut the gate behind you,” NotChimpy didn’t say.

Some Fries With Your Stupid?


That frothy mix of lube and fecal matter, Rick Santorum has enough weapons-grade hate that he is now attacking legal immigrants.

Let me ask you a question. Since 2000 there have been a little over six million net new jobs created. What percentage of those net new jobs are held by people not born in this country? Half? Sixty?

All of them.

There are fewer native-born Americans working today than there was [sic] in 2000, in spite of 17 million more workers in the workforce. So when people tell me the problem is just illegal immigration, they’re wrong. They’re wrong…

We are almost at the same level of non-native born in this country they were at in 1920. And in 1920 they realized, wait a minute, it’s affecting our workers. Wages have stagnated, everybody knows that. Why? Part of the reason. Median income is going dowb. Why? Part of the reason is that we’re bringing floods of legal, not illegal, legal immigrants into the country.

One Lump of Stupid, or Two?


Canadian-born latino and immigrant-hating southern white supremacist Senator Ted Cruz wins the morning with his usual high pitched squealing and banal braying:

Cruz suggested Wednesday that if the department shuts down because the president vetoed a funding bill that included language halting his executive order, Obama would bear responsibility…

…When asked if it would be worth shutting down the Homeland Security Department in response to a veto, Cruz said, “that is an excellent question for you to ask the president.”

That dodge worked so well for him the last time he tried to deflect the blame for single-handedly shutting down the government, he though he’d try it again?

Claim Chowder: Massive Anti-Immigration Rally In DC

Hey guys, you know how like the Teabaggers were going to hold a massive rally in DC to oppose The Kenyan Usurper’s Amnesty for Swarthy Immigrants and maybe finally get him to resign?

Guess what happened?

(Right Wing Watch)

That’s right: No one showed up. Well, maybe less than a dozen?
