What do you need vitamins for? Thinking of getting stronger so you can punch more homos?

were none of the people Biden bullied gay?

To them, yes. Anyone who challenges those in power is a "bully" to these people so they can enjoy more butthurt.

Why not? It's their defense when it comes to banning gay marriage.

"Allowing homosexuals to marry would infringe on our religious liberties to step on gay people."

Right it's only bad if he had cut of the top part of his head.

I love who people on the right are pretending this is no big deal. I think at many schools you'd get expelled for this. I guess the rules are different for schools that cost $40,000 a year for rich people.

Rich people shouldn't have to follow the same rules everyone else does.

It's actually worse in their opinion. These are people who think that bullying gay people should be protected as religious expression.

When reducing tax revenue helps to decrease the deficit, yeah.
When invading a broke-dick, third world country defeats terrorism, yeah.
When blind obstructionism creates jobs....yeah.

Sounds like it's lucky for Romney he didn't go to the same school at the same time as Biden.

You're right, our personalities are not fully developed at all in high school or college.

The fact that Obama never did anything like this is totally irrelevant, right? You never knew anyone who was a bully in high school that became a bully as an adult, did you?
 
2012-05-14 01:03:43 PM  
Damn, Joe Biden gets more and more likeable with each piece of supposed mud the right wing tries to throw at him.
 
2012-05-14 01:03:50 PM  
I'd pay good money to watch Biden beat up Romney. It could be a new format for the debates on Pay Per View.

I have to assume that the people at Commentary are equally upset at Captain America for bullying people whose only real crime was being born with differently-colored skulls. Captain America is the real racist bully.

Wait, I don't get this...

Example #1 is a vague reference to him 'Coming back to get' someone, but is that all there is? Did he ever do this, or did his buddy just use it as a scare tactic with nothing to back it up?

Example #2 is him planting trees in someone's yard as a prank? Did I read that right, or did they use "saplings" as code for something else?

there was this one guy but then I went back in time and kicked his ass, narrowly avoided making out with my mom, got my parents together at this underwater dance and in the new future timeline he was working for us!

It's an illustration of character, both then (in what he did) and now (in what he learned from it.) Romney not only demonstrated that he was, indeed, part of an elitist clique that was happy to bully and assault suspected homosexuals, but that he is, now, quite clueless as to how to respond to questions about it - he's done everything from claim ignorance to dissemble when confronted with this admittedly petty act of homophobic assault.

He's a typical bully - runs his mouth off when he has an audience, runs like hell when confronted. What's worse is that this is, apparently, a trait that has continued since his early days, reinforced by entitlement and wealth. His actions as part of Bain Capital tend to tie into that image - he was happy to use a dominant position to better himself at the expense of many, many others, and then claim that, because he was rewarded for his actions, his actions were justified and acceptable.

Sure, THIS will win over voters!!

"Sure, our guy is the asshole who used to torment you in high school, but THEIR guy is the one who stood up for you!"

"Sure, our guy is Black Mask, but THEIR guy is Batman!"

"Sure, our guy is Hatemonger, but THEIR guy is The Punisher!"

Hahaha - read the article, it's not as good as the fantasy but it's still pretty funny.

It's crazy that somebody actually thought bringing this stuff up would make Romney look anyway better or somehow get him off the hook for assaulting a gay kid.
 
2012-05-14 01:07:13 PM  
So, wait, attacking those who attack the defenseless is now a bad thing?

What?

/Probably survived middle school due to unknowingly befriending a bully beater.

Romney is literally THAT guy

I'm actually starting to change my mind about Biden... I am pretty sure he would be a great president solely because his name is difficult to befart.

You libs just don't get it. You call this bullying and assault, I say Romney was simply trying to give him a fabulous haircut. Some people have the secret urge to be a hairdresser but because of liberals like you, society has demonized it as being somehow wrong for a man to cut hair. I say good for Romney for being true to himself.

Don't you dare try to steal my intellectual property. This could be big

So, Romney was a gay bashing asshole and Biden was Adam Baldwin in My Bodyguard? How is this helping right wingers?

i hope this change happens:

old and busted, glitterbombing

new hotness, cutting chunks of hair off anti-gay politicians


/be sure to use electric shears kids, running at somebody with scissors could be considered a real threat

Mitt Romney poses a severe problem for the GOP. He's a a**hole and a Mormon. He can't be both!


Nice guy and a Mormon: evangelicals may not vote for him...but moderates and women will strongly consider him.

A**hole and Protestant/Catholic: evangelicals will flock to him like GW Bush. but moderates and women may cool.

But a**hole and a Mormon: who's left?

This Sunday on PoliticsMania: "Joltin'" Joe Biden vs. "The Million-Dollar Mormon" Mitt Romney

Will Joltin Joe be able to take the Mormon down with his patented Gaffe Slam, or will Romney manage to lock in his Downsize Choke for the win? Tune this Sunday only on pay-per-view.
 
2012-05-14 01:12:24 PM  
We need the Biden/Palin debate meme updated, with Joe threatening to beat up Sarah or Todd or something actually funny and clever that I can't think of right now.
 
2012-05-14 01:13:32 PM  
I was there when it all went down. We were riding our dirtbikes on the beach and we saw Mitt's old girlfriend playing soccer with some new kid. I tried to chill Mitt out. I was like "She's ancient history, man! Ancient history!". But some of the other guys were getting Mitt fired up. They were like "Put him in a body bag! HA HA!"

So anyway, after we cut the kid's hair, Mitt had a change of heart and gave the kid back his hair. Mitt said "it's yours. You deserve it."

Personally, I blame our sensei, Richard Nixon, with filling our impressionable young minds with things like "mercy is for the weak" and "Jews run everything." He's the one who should be ashamed.

I wish there was a way to make all that text fit onto that picture without ruining both of them.

It's such a good meme.

This is a better deflection. Just use something from a boner inducing dream you had to deflect. It's genius actually.
