Today In False Equivalences

Permit me to be the first to congratulate Obama for hugging and kissing a nurse [Ed: one of nurses who treated the Ebola patient in Texas]. How chivalrous of him. But while he was busy giving himself double “atta-boys” for hugging hospital workers, I hugged the wife of Tyrone Woods, whom Obama allowed to be murdered in Benghazi along with Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith and Glen Doherty. Obama did not lift a finger to rescue the ambassador and the brave heroes who gave their all.

(World Nut Daily, and once again full disclosure: The late ambassador Chris Stevens and I went to high school together. It is still my belief that he would not want his memory used like this.)

Some Fries With Your Stupid?

This is Michael Savage, yelling at a veteran:

It seems the Vet was in favor of naming a SF tunnel after Robin Williams, and mentioned that he had PTSD, which set off Savage.

We’re Sure Marcus Is Picking Them

Go-West-Marcus

Michelle Bachmann gets round-the-clock bodyguards

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) is getting her own security detail to protect her against Islamic State militants.

The lawmaker’s office referred reporters to Capitol Police, Politico reported, but law enforcement officials declined to specify details of the threat.

“They need to be big guys, with thighs like pistons,” Marcus did not say, “with big, big guns. Oh, yes.”

The Death of the Media, Cont.

Jeebus, Mrs. Alan Greenspan is stuck in the 1990s and cannot get out. Does anyone care about this? Does anyone remember it, even?

Dinner At The Paul’s House

Rand Paul groundhog day driving

Here we go again: père et fils Paul are fighting in public:

In an interview with Fox News radio host John Gibson last week, Rand Paul argued that a ban on people traveling from west African “ought to be considered.”

“It’s not like AIDS,” he explained. “AIDS is difficult to transmit. You’re not going to go into a cocktail party and have someone cough and get AIDS. If you are in a cocktail party with someone with Ebola and they cough, you are at risk for getting Ebola.”

OK, pretty stupid for a number of reasons we’ve discussed before. But let’s hear what his dad The Gold Bug, who actually is a medical doctor (and not a Lens Grifter), has to say on the topic:

“For a government to just ban all travel, I’m not much interested in that,” the former Republican presidential candidate told Newsmax. “You’ve got to put it in perspective. What if you wanted to save 15,000 deaths from AIDS this year. Why don’t you ban certain practices that spreads AIDS? So, we’re talking about one person that’s died [of Ebola in the U.S.] and we want to close down the world travel system.”

And right about at that point Mrs. Goldbug probably started weeping and asked, “Who wants pancakes?,” as Rand runs out of the house to go to Sally’s, hot tears streaming down his peach-fuzzed cheeks.

Some Stupid For Your Coffee?

“What we have is, I made a comment that same-sex couples that want to destroy traditional marriage and our way of life, they’re Gremlins. They’re these creatures that are so destructive.”

–GOP SC congressional candidate Anthony Culler

Well, Y’all Qaeda is forever saying LGBTQ people are demonically posessed, so at least now they are being specific. Puts a whole new spin on that ’80s movie, though.

Happy-Happy, Joy-Joy!

The GOP is screwed, demographically.

The GOP is screwed, demographically.

For a while now (at least since 2008), Mock, Paper, Scissors has been saying that Y’all Qaeda is demographically challenged. The phrase we used was something along the lines of a dinosaur thrashing about in a tar pit, having no idea that it is doomed.

They keep thrashing:

Since 2007, the number of white evangelical Protestants nationwide has slipped from 22 percent in 2007 to 18 percent today. A look at generational differences demonstrates that this is only the beginnings of a major shift away from a robust white evangelical presence and influence in the country. While white evangelical Protestants constitute roughly three in 10 (29 percent) seniors (age 65 and older), they account for only one in 10 (10 percent) members of the Millennial generation (age 18-29).

Republicans and Conservatives (generally) are better at off-year elections, and while losing 4% of a sure thing might not seem like a lot, it is pretty close to the plus/minus of 5% of all polling. I’m sure the polls already take that into consideration, but it is significant. It might be what finally ends the culture wars.

There isn’t a thing that they can do about it, but in the meanwhile we need to keep being vigilant and voting.

Happy Hour News Briefs

News that will drive you to drink

Rev. Fishsticks warns us of Secular Sharia and says that The Lavender Menace want to lock up Y’all Qaeda.

  • RejoiceFocus on the Family actually has denounced Rick Wiles for finding the silver lining on the Ebowlers Disease, you know, when he said it will rid the US of gays, atheists, pornographers, and abortion.
  • What’s Black, Brown, and Harvey all-over? Trick Question, haha, they are the featured speakers at Peter LaBarbera’s hate-fest Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. Yes, ex-gay Stephen Black, Dr. Michael Brown (whose latest book, Can You Be Gay and Christian will no doubt be available for purchase), and our old pal, Linda Harvey (author of Maybe He’s Not Gay, which we discussed due to her activism and open grift using Banned Book Week to get it purchased and on the shelves at school libraries) will be the headliners. Oddly, tickets are still available, go figure.
  • Sequels! – Get excited! There really will be a God Is Not Dead II. Here’s a big hint as to why it earned nearly $9M: it was not made by that frothy mix of lube and fecal matter, Rick Santorum.

Some Fries With Your Stupid?

Matt Barber, the man who only thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night, tell us that T is for Tyranny!

Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny.

True. LGBT people have their designer boots on the necks of the beleaguered, put-upon, and always discriminated-against Xristians who hold no power in the U.S. whatsoever. Anyway, the whole piece is a Tour-de-Derp, but here are a few highlights that once again show both his profound lack of understanding and his sexist and misogynist world view.

Washington state, dateline 2012: Colleen is just like the girl next door. Well, sort of. Colleen has a penis. So, I guess, unless the girl next door has a penis, Coleen really isn’t much like her at all…

That’s the point of the designation, Matt. Your soul is in the wrong body, but I suppose that implies that a demon must be in there too, because God would never mistakenly put a boy inside a girl or vise-versa. Perfect snowflakes we all are.

Anyway, because it’s now illegal to “discriminate based on the basis of gender identity” in Houston, and since it’s the only “tolerant” thing to do, men who sign up for the ever-persecuted “LGBT” class have secured the hard-fought “civil right” to fully expose themselves to, and otherwise ogle, your daughters in the ladies’ room…

And what about the ladies, Matt, who want to expose themselves to, and otherwise ogle, your sons in the men’s room? Oh, that’s cool? The projection here astounds me: he only sees a scam to ogle women.

But slow down there, Dad. According to the law, if you have a problem with Mr. Francis baring all to your baby girl, then you’re the problem. You’re a “transphobe” (“homophobia’s” evil twin sister, er, brother … whatever). Deck this sicko for terrifying your first-grader and you’re off to jail while “Colleen” is off to the “Human Rights Campaign” for a commendation as the latest victim of an “anti-LGBT hate crime.”

I’m not an expert on etiquette in the ladies’ room, but I suspect that there is not part of one where the gals nude-up… just like there isn’t part of the men’s room where the dudes walk around with their twigs and berries flapping in the wind. Barber’s imagination certainly runs a little, um, hot?
