Today’s Golden Schlafly Award Goes To…


…our old pal One-L, for almost standing up for women in the double standard of being judged on their looks, but then going all Mean Girls:

“For a man, it’s like a three-minute shower and you put on your suit and tie and away you go,” Bachmann told radio host Rusty Humphries yesterday. “For women, literally, to do hair and makeup is an hour.” Bachmann said that when she was running for president, she “would get criticized more than anything” for her appearance, recalling one time when she was barraged with criticism for the length of her nails at a presidential debate.

“So, I mean, like, for Hillary Clinton, are you kidding, they focus group what she wears in these three debates, no question,” Bachmann said.

“I’m just saying, well, her, she looks like a Mao Zedong in every one of her outfits, those are terrible,” Humphries responded.

“Yeah, but that’s by design,” Bachmann said. “I mean, who is she? I mean, she is an economic Marxist so she feels very much at home in those Mao suits.”

The Morning Quote

Sean dreams of a Trump preznincy.

Sean dreams of a Trump preznincy.

Birtherism, redux:

“I have an offer for the president. I will charter a plane for you and your family,’ Hannity said on his daily radio show. ‘I will charter it to the country of your choice. You want to go to Canada? I’ll pay for you to go to Canada. You want to go to Kenya? I’ll pay for you to go to Kenya. Jakarta, where you went to school back in the day, you can go back there.”

Hannity added one condition: Obama “can’t come back.”

Noot Serves Us Our Morning Cuppa Stupid

Eiron, the Goddess of Irony, laughed so hard she farted

Let’s watch Noot loose his, well, newticles at Megyn Kelly:

Noot lecturing anyone about sexual predators is pretty hysterical; I’m sure Callista is somewhere having her hair helmet buffed and burnished so it doesn’t get mussed up under the desk today.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News Briefs

Tony Perkins, head of the tax-exempt hate group Family Research Council was inspired by Hair Furer Donald Trump’s attempt at a Gettysburg Address (you know, threatening law suits against the skirts who accused him of groping) and decided to do his own honest Abe speech, which takes some brass when you think about it:

It’s difficult to imagine a time in our nation’s history when Americans were more divided than they were during the Civil War. With the United States on the brink of near-extinction, and brother fighting brother, the future could not have looked bleaker than when President Abraham Lincoln took to the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg, stained with the blood of thousands of men, to begin the long road back to healing.

On Saturday, 28 presidents removed from the one who delivered what many consider to be the greatest political speech in American history, Donald Trump returned to that battlefield to deliver remarks of his own. Hoping to make one last case for his candidacy, he released a “Contract with the American Voter” outlining his first acts as president to “restore security and the constitutional law.” His agenda for the first 100 days — replacing Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court, overturning this White House’s unconstitutional executive orders, canceling funding for sanctuary cities, enforcing immigration laws, and initiating “extreme vetting” of people entering the U.S. — is an ambitious start to undoing the damage of the Obama years. “Hillary Clinton is not running against me. She is running against change,” he said. “We will drain the swamp in Washington, D.C., and replace it with a new government of, by and for the people,” Trump promised, echoing Lincoln’s famous words. “That is why I have chosen Gettysburg to unveil this contract.”

… As with Lincoln, we can pray that under a pro-life president the 58 million unborn Americans shall not have died in vain. Until then, Trump had a warning for the millions of voters uncertain about what to do on November 8.

Totally what Lincoln would have said. But wait! Ginzu knives coming… because Perkins published this tripe on the FRC website, thus daring the IRS, he chickens out at the end:

DISCLAIMER: Tony Perkins is supporting a candidate in his individual and personal capacity only, and it should not be construed or interpreted in any way as the endorsement of FRC, FRC Action, or any affiliated entity.

So I guess anyone can publish an opposing view on FRC now, hmmm?

Some Fries With Your Stupid, Sen. Ro-Jo?

Sen. Johnson said WHAT?!

Sen. Johnson said WHAT?!

Future-former Senator Ron Johnson, the intellectual solar flair of the Senate, has sumpin’ he want to tell us about climate change:

“I’ve never denied climate change. It has always changed, always will,” he said. “The sun has the primary effect on weather and climate on planet Earth, so I’m just not a climate change alarmist.”

“Mankind has actually flourished in warmer temperatures,” he continued. “I just think the question always is what is the cost versus the benefit of anything we do to try and clean up our environment … I’m highly concerned about the climate alarmists that are going to spend a lot of money and have no impact whatsoever on the climate but have a great deal of harm on our economy.”

In the same article, he uses as proof of his Civilization Thrives In Warm Weather thesis that this is why people move to Florida and Texas, and not Alaska.

RoJo: Bright Lights, Dim City.

Requiem for a Granny-Starver


If you need proof that the Republicans have indeed gone over the falls in a barrel, here it is:

A majority of Republican voters in a NBC/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday says they would trust presidential nominee Donald Trump to lead the GOP over Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).

The survey shows that 63 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters say they trust Trump more than Ryan to lead the party, while 34 percent put their trust in the Speaker.

We keep reminding everyone: Trump is not a symptom, Trump is the GOP. So the orcs and mouthbreathers trust the guy who is destroying their party more than Zombie-eyed Granny-starver Paul Ryan?

So who will mourn the removal of the gavel from Paul Ryan’s kung-fu grip, I mean other than Agnotology enthusiat pundits who see him as some sort of dreamboat? Will the king of asterisk farrago budgeting be sent into the sunset? Will Ayn Rand weep from beyond the veil?

Popcorn, anyone?

Popcorn, anyone?

Who cares.
