Back by popular demand – well, six people may not seem like a lot to you, but around my neck of the woods it’s practically a mob – Idiots’ Delight makes its “triumphant” return to these vaunted pages, with one small, but not insignificant, change. Instead of the usual monthly segment, I’ve decided to make it a semi-annual feature.
The reason for the switch was quite simple, really. Maintaining a monthly installment of dimwitted behavior perpetrated mostly by the same nincompoops was becoming exhausting. The six-month format affords me the opportunity to gather up all the loose nuts as it were in one neat little pile, while allowing for the sprinkling in of the occasional neophyte.
Anyway, let’s get on with it, shall we. I’ve only got so many ant-acid tablets left.
Actually, the real crime here is that an entire continent is paying for their mistake and the United States damn near drove down the same road because of Dumb and Dumber and their half-witted disciples. Far from bellyaching, these two wanna be economists should just shut up and close down their shell game before any more innocent people get hurt.
Also not surprising was the condemnation that King and House Republicans received from Hispanic groups over the measure which has zero chance of making it through the Senate. Defiant to the end, King said this is “the first test of the 113th Congress in the House of Representatives on immigration.” Yep, and you just flunked it, genius!
Of course after the video aired on Fox News, Vera was fired, Acorn ended up being defunded by Congress and the whole thing supposedly went away. Except not quite. Vera sued O’Keefe for damages, “arguing that he was taped without consent in violation of state law, and portrayed untruthfully.” O’Keefe eventually agreed via a settlement to pay Vera $100,000 and to issue an apology. A small price to pay for basically ruining someone’s life. What a scum bag.
Einstein was right. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
The truth is that Obama’s justice department has gone after more whistleblowers than any other administration before it. As Jon Stewart mockingly noted, “They believe in freedom of the press, just not freedom of speech for people who might talk to the press.”
Conducting an internal review of policy is all fine and dandy, but it may be a case of too little too late. The damage has been done. The best course of action would be for Holder to step down as Attorney General. If he won’t, then Obama needs to ask for his resignation.
Unfortunately for old motor mouth, that’s not what he said back in 2006 when George Bush was in the White House. Back then he said this of the NSA program: ” It’s staggering to me we are even debating the use of these techniques in this country even at this time.”
What’s staggering to me is how Hannity hasn’t exploded yet from all the bullshit that’s inside of him. I guess Barack Obama must’ve “colored” his perception of what constitutes a violation of our basic rights. I would call this buffoon a hypocrite, but that would be doing a disservice to the millions of hypocrites around the world.
We are seeing the assault on our liberties. We are seeing what happens when you give so much power to a handful of bureaucrats, and what they do to abuse our religious freedom. . . The left likes to think that we are the fringe. Guess what? You and I, we are the mainstream When you take a look at what’s happening, the goal we have in front of us is to reclaim the center of our politics.
The center? Today’s GOP would have to stretch just to find the right margin on the page. To paraphrase Churchill, seldom has a political party done so much to alienate so many. Lincoln and Eisenhower must be spinning in their graves.
Hindsight may be 20/20, but the ramifications of that decision were incalculable. The recount, had it been allowed to proceed, more than likely would’ve awarded the state and with it the election to Al Gore. The next eight years, which brought us 9/11, the Iraq War, and the worst economic upheaval since the Great Depression, might have been completely averted but for a premature and ill-conceived rush to judgment.
First of all, it’s not Darrell Issa’s gut that I’m worried about; it’s his motives. Considering that he has spent the better part of the last two years trying to pin everything conceivable on this president, a thorough investigative journalist would’ve been all over his specious charges and demanded proof to those charges. That she allowed the “paid liar” remark to go unchallenged is reprehensible.
Here’s what my gut tells me, Candy. Next time you find yourself interviewing a politician with an obvious ax to grind, leave your gut home and concentrate on your job.
From her infamous McCarthy-like interview with Chris Matthews to her legendary Lexington and Concord moment all the way to her sprinting from a Dana Bash microphone, Bachmann could fill an encyclopedia with all her gaffs. I must admit, I am going to miss the birdbrain.
But fear not progressives, I’m certain the GOP will find someone to fill her shoes. Already I hear that Louie Gohmert has personally promised to make one more extra outrageous statement a month to pick up some of the slack. There’s never a shortage of crazy in the cuckoo’s nest.
