Some Fries With Your Stupid?

“Listen to me carefully, America. Listen to me. This may actually save your life someday. I want you to remember this: whatever the government says to do, don’t!”

–Free-range conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck offering advice on Ebola-driven panic.

It Would Be Irresponsible Not To [Speculate]!

Remember when Senate Majority Leader Dr. Bill Frist diagnosed Terri Schiavo using a video tape? Well, it seems that he started something as Fox News resident psychological consultant (who may or may not be certified (!) and licensed to practice), Keith Ablow has diagnosed The Kenyan Usurper without ever meeting the fiend:

The Fox News contributor also veered into racial territory when attacking the president. When asked why Obama wouldn’t impose a travel ban on flights from Africa, Ablow responded that Obama’s “affinities, his affiliations are with them. Not us. That’s what people seem unwilling to accept. He’s their leader … we don’t have a president.” He added: “We don’t have a president who has the American people as his primary interest.”

It probably made more sense in the original German.

There are a lot of sound clips you can listen to at Media Matters, and it is really strange, deranged commentary, like the fever dreams of D’Vorce D’Spousa claiming that Obama suffers from anti-colonialism (or whatever that racist nonsense was) on which he built his fledgling movie and publishing career.

The Smart Bush

Chimpy’s brother Not Chimpy might be thinking about running for preznint in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, or he might be thinking about pie. Pie is nice, running for office is not.

Anyway, Not Chimpy was asked about the Paycheck Fairness Act, and because he might be thinking about the 2016 Goat Rodeo he responded brilliantly with, “What is the Paycheck Fairness Act?”

Once the man he was speaking with defined it as a bill that would help women receive “equal pay for equal work,” Bush took issue with his phrasing.

“Equal pay for the same work, not for equal work — I think that’s the problem with it. I think there’s a definition issue.”

Nicely dodged! But if you really are thinking about running in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, maybe you might want to learn-up on some of the issues?

I worry about the Rebranding, Reince, I really do.

Some Fries With Your Stupid?

Tom Cotton, whom some might mistake as a mini-me version of almost-human The Willard Mechanism tells us that people with pre-existing conditions were better off before The Affordable Care Act.

“Many people were happy with their coverage under the high-risk pool, before it was eliminated,” Cotton said. “They should have been allowed to keep that choice.”

Then he was wheeled back stage for a tune-up, chassis lube, and change of spark plugs.

The GOP’s Winning Message For Wimmins

Um, what about telling women (and men) what your policies are that should be attractive to women?

The late Molly Ivin said that we should never listen to politician’s words, but should look at the record. Let’s investigate!

  • Defund and shut down Planned Parenthood, which offers a lot more services than abortion, like breast cancer screenings and other preventative healthcare? Whoops!

  • That the party unanimously voted down a minimum wage increase? That might be related to women. Whoops!

  • The Violence Against Women Act was filibustered in the Senate? Whoops!
