A question for the “values voters”

He’s a treasonous, disloyal, philandering, irresponsible, uncouth, racist, uncaring, egocentric, narcissistic sociopath with a stool specimen where his brain should be.

What part of that reminds you of Jesus?

Eyedoan geddit.

playedThis is mind boggling. He has reversed himself on one campaign promise after another, with more certainly to follow.

I’ve been scratching my head for about a week now wondering where is the explosion of outrage against a candidate who promised them the moon, sun, and stars.

Thoughtful voters who believed they were backing a candidate of integrity, who’s not “just another career politician,” should be livid about this.

Guess what? They’re not. They don’t give a fat rat’s ass. So what are they getting for their loyalty?

Cover. They get cover for their once-again legitimized bigotry, racism, misogyny, homophobia, and xenophobia. Nothing else matters to them, apparently – they just want agency to insult and demean people not like themselves.

They never ever believed he’ll deliver what he promised. They don’t give two shits if he does. They got what they crave: permission to be assholes.

Well, the World Series has begun.

2015-World-Series-Logo-MLBThe traditional Fall Classic, where the best teams from the American and National Leagues vie for ultimate glory and supremacy under autumnal skies and crisp fall leaves.

And you know what THAT means –

The oldies radio stations have started playing Christmas songs.

It’s the first week of September.

The air is crisp, the sun’s beams are lengthening, and the wind is warm and pleasant. Labor Day is over, the kids are back in school, football season hasn’t officially kicked off yet, and there’s still a couple of weeks until fall begins.

Which means, naturally, that Walmart is putting out its Christmas merchandise.

Dumbest highway sign ever.

It’s in east central Minnesota, on state highway 95, about halfway between Cambridge and Princeton.

By reading the sign, you’re defeating its intended purpose.

Reblog: Look what you people have done to Ann Romney

From the Atlantic Wire, by way of the awesome blog Under The Mountain Bunker:

“By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney’s wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses.”

Remember this guy?

This is Eric Hartsburg, the guy who took $15,000 to get the Romney campaign logo tattooed on his face. You didn’t exactly need to be Nostradamus to have seen this one coming: he’s now going to get it removed. From the HuffPo:

Eric Hartsburg Plans To Remove Tattoo Of Romney On Face

The indignities of losing a presidential race don’t stop on election night.

Since November 6th, Mitt Romney has seen his Facebook followers dwindle and his merchandise land in the discount bin. Now, a professional wrestler with a Romney/Ryan logo facial tattoo is planning to remove it, calling Romney’s post-campaign performance “pretty shameful.” Eric Hartsburg told Politico the final straw came when the former GOP presidential candidate attributed his loss to President Barack Obama’s “gifts” to minorities.

“It stands not only for a losing campaign, but for a sore loser,” Hartsburg said. “He’s pretty shameful as far as I’m concerned, man. There’s no dignity in blaming somebody else for buying votes and paying off people. I can’t get behind that or stay behind that.”

Hartsburg, who said he hoped the 5-by-2-inch tattoo would make politics more fun, had initially resigned himself to keeping the mark. “I’m the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life,” he told Politico after the election, saying he was a man of his word.

But the 30-year-old is now planning to fly to Los Angeles to have the tattoo removed, a year-long process. He hasn’t ruled out getting another tattoo, maybe in 2016 when the “R” could do double duty for a potential Marco Rubio candidacy.

Or, maybe, he said, he’ll just get a yard sign next time.
