You mean the Concern Troll from 2008 really turned out to be a GOP shill/attention whore? What?
It's only bad when "Conservatives" are whores

When A dim does it, it's patriotic.

1- Signed up for twitter less than a week before her staged media event

2- Lies. Her sideshow was not testimony as is being claimed it was a staged event. No oath.

3- The first person she followed was a reporter, the second she followed is a guy who called other women "slut"... I know It's only wrong when conservative entertainers call women naughty names. When liberals do it, it's "humor", "entertainment", etc...


Is this your revenge for you always being used by your third-grade teacher in the "One-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-others" classroom demonstrations?

The Republican Party is rapidly turning into American Idol for politicians, the party where any lucky stiff off the street can suddenly be thrust into the limelight.

He called himself a plumber even though he never had a license...he said he was planning to buy out his business, even though he had no means to do so.

Even though he'll lose the election, he will still present himself as a congressman.

4. Rush Limbaugh was in on the whole thing - that's why he spent 3 days attacking her, knowing the Liberal Media would cover it all, making her a household name and forcing conservatives to go public with their views on birth control.

You have to admire Rush. He has spent over two decades getting to the point he could take down the conservative movement from within. Now THAT is a long con.

Rush Limbaugh, Fascist Pig Liberal Mole.

How about this?

"As Stephen Harper rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Ohio. It is from Ohio that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Canada, because they are right next to, they are right next to our state."

jso2897: Freakman: He's going to go up against the longest serving woman in Congress in a blue district. Sorry Joe, your princess is in another district.

What makes you think he cares whether he wins or not? This guy isn't exactly stupid - he possesses what William Burroughs called "animal peasant shrewdness", and he has seen Sarah Palin bankroll a career of doing absolutely nothing real in public life into a small fortune - and I'm pretty sure he intends to do the same.
Judging by the intelligence of his fans, he shouldn't have any trouble.


Because my Super Mario Bros. reference doesn't work unless I assume he actually wants to win.

unlikely: Dear Ohio

If you elect that guy to any kind of office whatsoever, you deserve everything that he's going to do to you.

Sincerely,
The rest of us


He won't win. He's running in a solidly democratic district. It's a throwaway campaign for the Rs.

Dan the Schman: But Joe injected himself into a national debate by approaching Obama and questioning him about his tax policy


In truth, it was Obama that approached him. Looking at the footage, he was tossing a football in his yard before being approached.

That being said, yes...he was part of the campaign after being maligned by the leftists haters.

It is the reason he is the rep nominee.

/can't see why people are saying his name isn't Joe. Joseph =/=Joe anymore?

1. Why would anyone need a Twitter feed unless they're about to be part of a place where they're expected to have it? I think I signed up to help with a political campaign somewhere. It's really the only thing Tweeting is good for. What do you want, her daily laundry list?

2. And no oath = lies. Really. You mind proving anything she said was a lie?

3. A) Citation needed, B) and a one-second line from anyone has not only what bearing on her dying friend but what comparison to a three-day rant ending in a demand for sex tapes?

chimp_ninja: jso2897: Arkanaut: EnviroDude: And hy do we know this? Because candidate Obama could never be embarrassed and the syncopants had to dig through his records and leak them to the press.

We may not agree on much, but I have to say "syncopants" is an awesome word.

It is impossible to overemphasize the importance of properly synching one's pants.

If one's pants are out of synch, chafing of the hindquarters may result.

If only there was a medical professional in the thread, perhaps even an Internet dentist. He would know.


I saw a guy get arrested on the Venice Boardwalk the other day for having his pants out of synch.
They were out of synch with his ass.

1. He's not really a Joe.
2. He's not really a plumber.
3. He lied to McCain about being an independent.

This is the face of the "future" of the GOP Party. As its members, morals, and modii operandi get old and die out.
 
2012-03-07 12:09:10 PM
Thank you, John McCain, for unleashing a generation of vapid, rabid, mindless ideologues on the country through your feckless 2008 campaign and its short-sighted use of mouth-breathing campaign props.

Craptastic: It's sad that we're losing Crazypants Kucinich, however. Despite his weirdness, he was a solid liberal voice in the House and I'll miss him. (his wife is much hotter in person, BTW)


There was talk a few years ago about him moving to a friendly district out west (I think to Oregon) because they knew he'd be the number one person on the redistricting committee'shiat list. Be interesting to see if that actually happens.

Samuel Wurzelbacher was the name on the ballot.


I'm sure there are plenty of people who would eagerly vote for someone whose name sounds like Some Wuzzabiatcher.

That says a lot about Ohio voters. You don't have to be smart. You can be in debt for the last ten years. You can be an unemployed plummer, and the Ohio GOP will still view you as their best option to lead them.



And yet the right still doesn't see their problem.


lol all the way to the polls and back.

No not at all. I don't have one. yet it is telling that after claiming to be a public activist she only signs up for it a couple days before her meeting w/ Pelosi.

2. And no oath = lies. Really. You mind proving anything she said was a lie?

Sure.
Called the meeting w/ pelosi "Congressional hearing". Both words are lies. it was not a congressional hearing. She did not testify as there was no oath given.

3. A) Citation needed,

B) and a one-second line from anyone has not only what bearing on her dying friend but what comparison to a three-day rant ending in a demand for sex tapes?

Your side's whargarble about rush calling her a slut. Yet you now (as in the past) dismiss anyone on your side of the aisle uses that term and worse.
media.salon.com
http://dailycaller.com/2011/05/25/unhinged-msnbcs-ed-schultz-calls-la u ra-ingraham-a-right-wing-slut/]Laura Ingraham a 'right-wing slut'

Bill Maher
Called Palin a "dumb twat" and "c*nt"

Called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann "boobs" and "two bimbos."

Yet those are acceptable to you as you dislike the women Maher & Schultz called names. In short, you care nothing about "Respect for Women". You have no interest in "polite dialogue" you are simply derping and a hypocrite. If rush had use the term towards Palin, Coulter, etc (hell far worse has been said here on fark towards both of them) you'd be at best silent and more likely, joining in the name calling.

Oh and before you A) say I'm trying to censor anyone, let me put up the bullshiat flag ahead of time. Call anyone you like any thing you like. and B) I dislike every political person I mention here, coulter, palin, limbaugh, etc. Just don't try to feign sincerity when being such a transparent hypocrite.


Should rush have called her a slut? No. A slut has promiscuous sex. A whore demands folks pay for her sexual activities.

Anyone who is still peddling this lie about Sandra Fluke's testimony is a dishonest partisan hack.

Just pointing that out to you.

All I want to know is how are all the Conservatives dealing with being nailed up on a cross like that?

Craptastic: raanne: EyeballKid: So, Kucinich isn't winning a primary in this new gerrymandered district, but Sam the Deadbeat is? You know what, Ohio? FARK YOU. You don't deserve nice things, and now I have to reconsider my stance on Lebron James.

Kaptur who won has been in congress since the 80s and has a lot of power there. Her district was merged with Kucinich's district - only one of them could win. Its a gerrymandered democratic district so Joe the Plumber doesn't have a chance.

I would like to repeat this point. Kaptur is the longest-serving female congresscritter in the House. She is well-loved in her (newly redrawn) district, and Sam the not-a-plumber doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of unseating her. So, EyeballKid, hold on to your stupid FARK YOUs, until you know what you're talking about.

It's sad that we're losing Crazypants Kucinich, however. Despite his weirdness, he was a solid liberal voice in the House and I'll miss him. (his wife is much hotter in person, BTW)


Yeah, Ohio progressives should make like Lando with Darth Kasich, and pray he doesn't alter the deal (read: electoral districts) further. Just some people lost their political representation because the GOP didn't feel like running an election in Kucinich's district, so that's alright. It's a shame nobody in the state cares that it's going to shiat, and it sucks that they don't realize it except in the most glaring, non-political way: LEBRON WAS RIGHT TO LEAVE OHIO. For Florida, at that! Think about that, Ohio.

Just think boys and girls. If he does get elected, and he does serve a few terms, he could end up Speaker of the House, then he could be second in line to serve as President of the United States of America. Hell, he could be elected speaker in his first term technically couldn't he? Isn't it great?
