Random Musings

Overheard at work:
Me [to female co-worker]: That is so cool that you did that!
Female co-worker: Did what?
Me: Honor Phyllis Diller by doing your hair like--
Female Co-worker: Who's Phyllis Diller?
Me: You mean you didn't--
Female Co-worker: Didn't what?
Me: Never mind.

As if we needed further proof the Mormons--for the most part--don't like The Gays, at least one Mormon-owned television station in Utah has declared that they will not air The New Normal due to its "perverted" depiction of a gay male couple. 
Cuz the two guys use a surrogate to have a baby, and, maybe, because Ellen Barkin is in it and she is high-lariously racist.
Add to that the fact that One Million Moms, via spokesNazi Monica Cole, and Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, have joined in and you can just bet this will be the most watched new show of the season.
I'm in, because I'm out.

I know it isn't a big jump to conclude that Rush Limbaugh is a drug-addicted moron, but then even Rush goes for a deep swim in the intellectually-challenged pool.
See, Rush is suggesting that President Obama might have personally tampered with the Hurricane Center’s prediction models for the path of Hurricane Isaac, with the hopes that it would force the GOP to delay or cancel its convention in Tampa, Florida this week.
Yeah, he did. Sure, while he was spreading this conspiracy theory, and also denying he was spreading this conspiracy theory, Rush said:
“And I noticed that the hurricane center’s track is—and I’m not alleging conspiracies here. The hurricane center is the regime; the hurricane center is the Commerce Department and I'm noticing that that track stayed zeroed in on Tampa day after day after day. And the Republicans react to it accordingly over the weekend, canceling the first day of the convention. What could be better for the Democrats than the Republicans to cancel a day of this...Okay, 6:45 p.m. Saturday night the Republicans announce that they’re canceling Monday. At 6:45 p.m. Saturday night, everybody is still under the impression that Isaac is making a beeline for very close to Tampa. It was an hour and 15 minutes later that the eight p.m. model runs showed New Orleans. I’m alleging no conspiracy. I’m just telling you, folks, when you put this all together in this timeline, I’m telling you, it’s unbelievable."
Unbelievable is right. Unless you live inside Rush's drug-addled, Chick-fil-A-hole filled, brain. 

And speaking of moronic Republican lapdogs, Ann Romney has come out as saying Modern Family is her favorite TV show, and how she most looked forward to watching it each week.
Modern Family. With the gay couple and their adopted Asian baby.
Well, Modern Family executive producer Steve Levitan found it all a bit ironic, given her faith--the GOP--and her religion--Mormonism--and Tweeted: 
"Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We'll offer her the role of officiate at Mitch & Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal."

Last week I watched Meet The Press from the RNC in Tampa, and Arizona Governor--and certifiable moron....which I'll prove momentarily--Jan Brewer was a guest.
Now, I'm notALLEGING she's a drunkard, but I am saying that watching Brewer try to stitch together a coherent thought was a little like watching me try to insert a key into my front door lock after a night of martoonis with the fellas.
It was that ugly. They were discussing Todd Akin and his idiocies and she kept calling him Adkins, or Atkins, or anything but his real name. And then she mumbled something about the Democrats War On Women. I know!
But, if you needed further convincing that Jan Brewer is ALLEGEDLY a drunkard, or just a full bore lunatic, look no further than the fact that she has endorsed President Obama from the floor of the RNC.
Oh, but she did. see the video HERE.
Brewery, er, Brewer:  
“I know if President Obama is elected in November, which I hope he is, he will be able to come together with all of us and come up with a solution. I believe he will secure our borders. And therefore, we can resolve all of the other issues as a simple matter.”
Now it's possible that Brewery, er, Brewer misspoke, but isn't it just further proof that she isn't fit to be a governor? Even of Arizona?

The Log Cabin Republicans believed their presence at this year's GOP national convention would help move their party toward equality. 
The GOP helping The Gays move forward? Really? LCR? Is anyone home there?
Of course they soon realized they were wrong, because the Republican platform is just as discriminatory and hateful as eve:
"The platform affirms the rights of states and the federal government not to recognize same-sex marriage," reads the party manifesto. "It backs a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman."
And now, all of the sudden, the LCR is pissed at the GOP for being so visibly and vocally anti-gay--as most self-loathing closeted homosexuals are--and LCR's director of programs, Casey Pick, says:  "We lost. And you could say the social conservatives in our party dropped the hammer harder because we were there."
Or you could just say the LCR wore blinders where the GOIP was concerned.

Paul Ryan.
Tea party Grand Wizard, or so it seems, who said in his acceptance speech--I think he won the GOP for Best Hangdog Eyes--that American rights are moral rights given to us by God:
"Each of these great moral ideas is essential to democratic government – to the rule of law, to life in a humane and decent society. They are the moral creed of our country, as powerful in our time, as on the day of America’s founding. They are self-evident and unchanging, and sometimes, even presidents need reminding, that our rights come from nature and God, not from government."
Um, Paul, you delusional fuck. Um, God already has a set of laws called The Bible, which, by the way, a lot of you who quote continuously from, but do not actually follow yourselves.
So, God's laws are in the Bible, and, correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm not, so best stay quiet, I don't see god's name on the Declaration of Independence. I don't see it on the Bill of Rights or the Constitution.
In fact, other than mentioning a creator I don't really see a lot of God in our laws.
And, if we're going to hurry back to the days of using God's laws, what did she say about lying? She may have not mentioned it specifically, but I know she's be less than thrilled that you keep saying the GM plant in Wisconsin was closed by Obama when, in fact the truth is--and take a moment to acquaint yourself with the truth--that the plant closed months before Obama won the White House, and many months before he even moved in.
Failing to understand that makes you a moron, and a Tea party darling.
Good luck.

In other RNC news:
New jersey Governor Chris Christie was the big speaker--and I'm just going to let that one lie there--at the RNC the other night.
And I loved it.
Mainly because his speech, about the GOP and presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, rambled on for nearly twenty minutes before he even mentioned Mittsy. 
See, it was less "Let's get Mitt in the White House" and more "He can't win but vote for me in 2016."
Add to that the fact that Ron Paul and The Paulettes won't endorse you and the RNC is looking like the Grand Old Clusterfuck.

Tweets from, and about, The RNC:

Lady Gaga did Phyllis Diller Memorial Hair for her latest magazine cover.

anne marie in philly said...

the GOP is fulla shit! every last one of those lying bastards!

Ron said...

Paul Ryan, soulless liar. He learned well from Mittsy. I hope the news media has enough balls to call him out on his lies even though doing so may mean he won't do an interview with them (hear that David Gregory?)

Ask the Cool Cookie said...

Paul Ryan is a puppet. When he turns around you can see the arms of the Koch Brothers jammed up his ass.

Marie said...

I live in New Jersey and I have MS, so Chris Christie and Ann Romney were like a personal double whammy of inducing nausea.

Chris Christie's speech in a nutshell: "But enough about me, what do YOU think about me?" Was he nominating his mother for the Presidency or Romney? It was embarrassing.

Ann Romney just pisses me off by her presence. If I hear her say one more time that she 'controls' her MS with horseback riding, my head will explode. When her MS decides to show her who is in charge, all the horses in the world are not going to stop it. I feel sorry for her, because she is in for a fall, but she infuriates me by perpetuating flat out hogwash.

Republicans. Sigh.

Donald Trump's name even sounds like a troll name. Trump the Troll.
