I'm sure that if you looked a little harder, subby, you could have found an article about this article and linked to that instead. Why only take me one link away from the original when a little more effort might have gotten us an even less fleshed-out summary? Try harder, please.

Surool: As I asked yesterday... WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU REPUBLICANS!?!

This is nothing new. Every election year since mid-90s, someone recycles a rumor that whatever President is in office is not ready to relinquish power and has hundreds of boxcars and UN troops ready to round up dissidents and send them to secret FEMA death camps that have already been established out in the middle of nowhere. The players change, but the rumor persists. I've heard it about Obama, Bush and Clinton.

The Republican party has increasingly pandered to the mentally ill vote since the middle of 2008, and it's the main reason for the Tea Party "revolution" in 2010.

No, it always was mental illness... a mass delusion reinforced continuously within their own cohort. From gravely whispered warnings amongst friends to FW:FW:FW:FW: email chains to unhinged screeds in the freepzone to A.M. radio call-in shows... it has become an ever-more deafening echo-chamber of toxic, patently unAmerican derp. Non-stop hate noise.

They aren't any worse today. They have just grown comfortable with being public about it.

It's like conservatism is their hobby. I imagine them eating conservat-Os and spend all day playing with conserv-a-action figures. On thursday nights they meet and play conserva-poker. They LOVE IT and don't deal with anything that isn't it.

2012-08-01 01:33:03 PM
One wonders what the qualifications might be to appeal properly to the General Derpulation for State Representative in rural Tennessee.

"Keisling's watched 'Smokey and the Bandit' more times than his opponent. He's got my vote!"
"Yes, but the opponent flunked out of *third* grade, whereas Keisling's an intellectual elitist with his sixth-grade education. Fractions aren't in the Bible, you know."
"That's an outstanding point, but I'm forced to point to Keisling's performance in the debate where he replied to the question 'What can be done to better prepare Tennessee students for the high-tech, high-wage jobs of the 21st century?' by jamming his fingers in his ears and screaming 'JESUSJESUSJESUSJESUS' for his entire allotted 45 seconds."
"That is compelling evidence to be sure, but the opponent *has* promised to use the office of State Representative to instantly have the UN Building bulldozed into the East River, change the alphabet so the letters that spell 'Islam' are eliminated and put Barack Obama in the Cobra Clutch until he starts singing the Kenyan National Anthem, which I believe was written by Snoopy Diddly Man."
"We're blessed to have such qualified candidates, old friend. I guess we're going with the number of 'Dale's in Heaven looking down on Junior winning Daytona' t-shirts in the candidate's closet yet again."

Lol, check out the link to the always amusing Constitution Party link:

A good journalist is usually taught not to print rumors or at least never to present them as the truth.
What I'm going to report here is only a rumor that presently can't be confirmed. But it is of such magnitude that it must be made known if only to prepare America for a possible terrible eventuality. And while it has not been confirmed, neither can it authoritatively and convincingly be denied, certainly not in a United States where our Constitutional rights are under constant attack.

This rumor involves an agent of the Department of Homeland Security who allegedly informed a reporter at the Canada Free Press of a "false flag" or faked event to be initiated by Obama administration operatives in the hope of preventing the November presidential elections.


Being a journalist, it pains me to have to print this. But I have a rumor that the Constitution Party is considering adding goat-farking to its official platform. It can't be authoritatively and convincingly denied, certainly not in a party where craziness is the norm. Therefore I feel obligated to warn my fellow patriots of this chilling development.

I'm not a con law expert, but I'm pretty sure the election would go forward, even in the event of an actual assassination. Maybe it would be delayed a week or something, but it wouldn't "avoid" the election. A vote for a dead president would be a vote for his chain of succession. Constitutional crisis? Avoided!

That's why these people are 'tards: they don't think their cunning theories all the way through.

It seems to me that the intellectual bubble over there is both encompassing more people and becoming more tightly sealed. It doesn't matter how trivially verifiable your claim is, if it contradicts the dogma, it must be wrong. Try to convince a Republican that there's no evidence Obama is anti-gun, for example.

But maybe it's always been this way, and I'm only just now noticing it, or I'm building up too much antidepressant tolerance.

But maybe it's always been this way, and I'm only just now noticing it, or I'm building up too much antidepressant tolerance.


The derp is so much more aggressive now than it used to be. Most of these dingbats would never have gotten in the newspaper, much less the TV media even back when the Fairness Doctrine was in effect. The day Obama won the primaries the derp noticeably doubled. That result quadrupled when he won the General Election.

This is embarrassing for our country.

Gaseous Anomaly: I should be in the kitchen: Dwight_Yeast: Surool: As I asked yesterday... WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU REPUBLICANS!?!

This has gone from derp to mental illness really fast.

What do you mean "really fast"? This crap has been building for the last 12 years and really since the Reagan administration.

True, but the derp has accelerated noticeably over the last 3.5 years. I truly hope that's due to the internet and social media (and the 24-hour "news" networks) but I fear America really is heading straight for Idiocracy.

You know - I was sure that was going to be Obama's campaign platform:
OBAMA 2012 - HOW EMBARRASSING!

Pocket Ninja: Why only take me one link away from the original when a little more effort might have gotten us an even less fleshed-out summary?


Because this was sufficient misdirection to allow the Farkmins to link yet another screwball WorldNutDaily conspiracy article without it being labeled?

No - this could work for him. Apology Tour 2012. Out of work? We're sorry. Business going under? We are so sorry. Did someone you love get killed by a gun we sold to Mexican drug cartel? How embarrassing - we are so sorry.

That's one I haven't heard...

I have read that some sort of fake attack on the family or himself will be initiated, some 'white terrorist' will be blamed which will launch an all out race war, then comes Marshall Law, elections postponed etc etc... I don't see it though. Too far out there.


who knows. He's a politician like the rest of them, if his lips are moving he's lying about something!

Wait would that make Biden the bad guy then? Because if Obama kicks it, Biden would be in charge and could be the only possible person to impose martial law.

New conspiracy theory: Biden was the bad guy the whole time and Obama is only his servant planning to 'kill' himself and have his wicked master rule the world.

Wow, you're like the Fox News Repeater Machine. Congratulations. My friend has a 5 year old who can do that too.

This is preemptive spin. The far right knows that they've worked the fringe into a frothy mess and that the likelihood of one of their crazies doing something crazy increases with every lie and misrepresentation. They're trying to fuel conspiracy theories and add doubt among their base in the event that something bad actually happens.

Isn't there a law about using government assets for partisan politcal purposes?

I'd like to apologize for this guy, but I'm not in his district. I will, however take a moment to apologize for Diane Black. Our primaries were Thursday and she won them, which is good because her opponent was actually worse, as hard as that is to believe. But seeing as there was no democratic opponent, get ready for two more years of bat-shiat crazy from Diane Black. I'm sorry, I voted for Cthulu.
