Mormon Fire Department sprays a burning house through a hole in a sheet.

Also, they have to wear their fireman jackets even while they sleep.

Party of Tolerance?

Who the hell is that supposed to be?

Well, if one person who leans toward the left says anything remotely stupid, they are speaking for every Democrat in the country.

If someone on the right says something stupid, it's an isolated incident.

Attacking Joy Behar is sort of like sandblasting a soup cracker.

I don't see the problem with what she said.

Joy Behar is a loud mouth blow hard. No one cares what she says. Except housewives ages 27-65

Considering Mitt doesn't mind seeing the houses of others burn down, this is justifiable irony.
 
2012-06-13 11:07:13 AM
Did she clarify which house? He's got more than one.
 
2012-06-13 11:07:26 AM
Never trust a politician who can afford his security and fire protection. Once you are that rich you are so detached normal society.

Joy Behar is a representative of the Democratic party?

No one cares about Ted Nugent either. But in the interest of fairness I think it's appropriate to denounce her words.

There are other ways to mock his stupid firefighters comment without wishing his house burns down.

Yeah what she said is almost as ridiculous as Romney's statement that she was responding to. Definitely not helping.

I don't care enough about Joy Behar to click this link, but did she say this asinine crap at a democratic political rally analogous to CPAC where President Obama was also speaking? Or did she just say it on some TV show no one watches?

There's kind of a difference.

Mentat: Why can't the Democratic Party control it's comedians???


Here's the thing about that. The consequences of Mitt Romney's professed ideology is that more houses WILL burn down, and in the process result in more people burning to death. Mitt Romney doesn't say it specifically, but his wish is that more people "Die in a fire." Interestingly, there's no particular malice associated with this wish. He just desires that more randomly selected people burn to death in fires. And not just a few of them, but in pretty significant numbers. Numbers big enough that were it one event, the delta between the status quo and his policies would be a long remembered international event. Elect Mitt Romney, and see his policies enacted is exactly equivalent to seeing large numbers of people burn to death in preventable/controllable fires. Then we start adding in the poisoning of drinking water, and increased cancer deaths, et al. What is the offset of these many lost lives, uncountable lost years of productivity? Tax cuts for the wealthy, who will continue poorly allocating wealth lent to them, thus reducing economic efficency even more.

So, yeah, it's morally defensable to advocate the violent murder of Mitt and Ann Romney. Trading two lives of objectively terrible, if not overtly malicious, people for the lives of thousands of random individuals, annually. The devil's calculus provides a clear result.

This. I'm failing to see the outrage over this. Although honestly I have no idea who the woman is who said it.

Not cool, Joy. What if his kids Frap and Dunk were in there?
 
2012-06-13 11:17:29 AM
Over-react much? I have no problem with what she said. She isn't saying, wow I really hope this guys house burns down. She said it as I hope he gets to feel the repurcussions of his stupid policies. Anyway, his families magic underwear would save them if there really were a fire.

No, and you do have a point. But instead of getting into a pissing match over whose words are worse or carry more import, I'm choosing to say Behar was over the line. Arguing degrees of wrongness in cases like this just perpetuates the larger problem: Assholes with big mouths.

Who cares, tardmitter. Mitt Romney has 38 other houses he can live in. Fark him and fark you.

Joy Behar is dumb. I'm a democrat and she's just dumb. If someone wants to launch a campaign to get her off the air I'm fine with that.

Rush Limbaugh is not dumb. He is vile and has learned how to get rich by being vile. If anyone wants to launch a campaign to give him infinite cock punches, I'll sign on.

Romney courted Nugent's endorsement. Did Obama ask for Behar's help?

Are both sides bad?

Pundits get paid to make outrageous comments whether they believe them or not. It gets press, and it gets real-life whackjobs up in arms about things. El Rushbo, Mann Coulter, Joy Behar, Bill Maher , et al, can't possibly believe everything they say. It's written by a team of people for maximum profit, buzz, and outrage.

Aaannd there's the "degree of wrongness" stupidity I just mentioned.

How dare I try to be fair and even handed, and call out a nut when I see one. I've betrayed the cause!

OK. I hope ALL of Romney's houses burn down!

Am I doing it right?

If you have to listen to Joy Behar finish speaking before you come to that conclusion......you might want to get checked out yourself.

The Mormon Fire Department is similar to the fire department in the movie "Pleasantville": instead of saying "cat" to get them to act, you say "sister-wife".

Whatever. We need more firebrands like this. The right can make outrageous comments with impunity, and it's goddamn effective. Look at the course of dialogue in this nation. It keeps moving further and further right. Why is it when a liberal says something outrageous, they immediately have to apologize?
