eraser8: Karac: Thirdly, what does a republican have to actually say to get his party to completely and utterly denouce him?

What's worse is Republican voters are still sticking with the guy: Missouri voters strongly disagree with the comments Todd Akin made about abortion over the weekend, but it hasn't moved the numbers a whole lot in the Senate race. Akin leads Claire McCaskill by a single point, 44-43. That's basically identical to our last poll of the contest in late May, which found Akin ahead by a 45-44 spread.

It's not that Missouri voters are ok with or supportive of Akin's comments. 75% of voters, including even 64% of Republicans, say they were inappropriate to only 9% who consider them to have been appropriate. 79% of voters say they disagree with what Akin said, including 65% who express 'strong' disagreement with him. 51% of GOP voters say they strongly disagree with him.

All of that is taking a toll on Akin's image. Only 24% of voters have a favorable opinion of him to 58% with a negative one. He's pretty universally disliked by Democrats (3/85) and independents (21/61) and even with Republicans (43/34) he's on only narrowly positive ground.

But for all of that the overall numbers in the race have moved very little.Republican voters have been conditioned to be extraordinarily loyal to whatever lowlife is running under the party label. So, you can safely ignore any list of reasons a Republican gives you for why he's voting for Herp McDerp. There's only real reason: Herp McDerp is a Republican.


McCaskill now has a TON of GOTV/ad/etc. money, I'm sure.

Dear Mr. Huckabee,

Suck my farking arse. No, seriously. Get down on your farking knees and suck my farking arse. I recently ate some questionable shrimp with habanero sauce and my schitt is fiery rancid. You should eat it up, because it might just boost the intelligence that your schitt-filled brain supposedly has. And when you are done sucking my arse you can go blow your god-damned brains out. Obviously your brains are nothing but schitt so you have nothing to lose.

Disrespectfully Yours,
An farking bastard.

Yep. Convention next week, at least for TDS.
 
2012-08-21 03:27:27 AM
I thought they could hold it together but with about three months until the election and before the Convention the GOP has gone batshiat crazy to the point where it's knifing itself in the gut.

I wonder if Reince is putting together a memo now with "Come on guys....knock it off" in it.
 
2012-08-21 03:27:57 AM
I think the GOP has a misprint in their copy of the Declaration of Independence. Someone should tell them it's not "Life, liberty and the pursuit of a penis".

Reminds me of Douglas Adams:

[An extraterrestrial robot and spaceship has just landed on earth. The robot steps out of the spaceship...]
"I come in peace," it said, adding after a long moment of further grinding, "take me to your Lizard."

Ford Prefect, of course, had an explanation for this, as he sat with Arthur and watched the nonstop frenetic news reports on television, none of which had anything to say other than to record that the thing had done this amount of damage which was valued at that amount of billions of pounds and had killed this totally other number of people, and then say it again, because the robot was doing nothing more than standing there, swaying very slightly, and emitting short incomprehensible error messages.

"It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..."

"You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?"

"No," said Ford, who by this time was a little more rational and coherent than he had been, having finally had the coffee forced down him, "nothing so simple. Nothing anything like to straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."

"I did," said ford. "It is."

"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"

"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"

"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."

"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"

"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"

"What?"

"I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?"

"I'll look. Tell me about the lizards."

Ford shrugged again.

"Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happened to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it."

2012-08-21 03:32:25 AM
The GOP isn't waging a "War on Women." That's silly hyperbole. No, the majority of its members just have such an immature, simplistic way of looking at ALL human relationships, that anything out of their comfort zone they can explain only in a troubling context.

("Out of their comfort zone" = blacks, gays, women, hispanics ...)

From the comments under TFA:

"In fact, it is consensual sex that produced such monsters as Hitler, Stalin, and Jimmy Carter. Unless of course they were one of those few cases of legitimate rape where the woman's body didn't function correctly. However, the odds are slim. So let me ask you, would you rather take your chances with consensual sex, which has such a sordid track record, or forcible rape that produced these two fine Americans?"

Day late and a dollar short on pointing this gem out. Unless you don't realize it's a joke or the discussion continued beyond that to an epic burn on Tosh.

So, having compassion for rape victims and treating any resulting offspring like HUMAN beings is now a bad thing? I wish you people would make up your minds on this.

On another note though, what this all is, from all of them saying this stupid shiat, is to defend banning abortions in ALL circumstances....

even if they were raped.....

even if it was incest......

even if they were 12 years old.....

[. . .] How can there be variations on rape?? [. . .]


There's all kinds of rape. Improvisational rape, Kansas City rape, cool rape, big band rape...

Wait, those are types of jazz. Or as I like to call it, ear-rape.

It's almost like the Republican Party is trying to do that suck for luck thing, where you fail so miserably this season you get first round draft picks next season.

"Date rape" isn't really rape anyway. I mean, it could be depending on the situation, but it's not necessarily that way even though overzealot people started using the name rape to define whatever nebulous thing happens there because every-time you mention the word rape it elicits images of a man physically assaulting a woman and penetrating her while she cries. Also, it's WAAAAAY to manipulable to be something concise.

Oh she was drunk? Well, he probably was too, so that's not really a reason to call it rape just because she later felt she shouldn't have had sex. How do you even demonstrate something like that? So the guy is liable just because he's a guy? It's actually sexist towards women since it presupposes a male superiority in judgment and mental qualities.

"Date rape" shouldn't be classified as actual rape unless there's intent involved and the presence of external factors like rohypnol or whatever. Also, change that idiotic name for the concept.

but in the end, if the fetus is a human, then all abortion is illegal and immoral. period.
if some abortion is morally ok, rape, incest, the mother is about to EXPLODE, then the fetus is not a human with any rights.

to pick the innocent rape victim over the innocent fetus is just a sliding scale of morality.
which makes it just as moral to abort a 9 week old fetus of non-rape.
to argue one is less moral is arguing shades of grey, not a moral argument at all.

/can we finally make it legal to abort up to and including the 315 trimester and just be done with it??

Vodka Zombie: The concept of "forcible" rape exists only to demonstrate to the planet that you are a very stupid person who deserves to be mocked without mercy.



I agree that people who believe in so-called "date rape" are stupid and deserve to be mocked.

BRIAN: I never thought he was.

MANDY: Now, none of your cheek! He was a Roman, Brian. He was a centurion in the Roman army.

BRIAN: You mean... you were raped?

MANDY: Well, at first, yes.

BRIAN: Who was it?

MANDY: Heh. Nortius Maximus his name was. Hmm. Promised me the known world he did. I was to be taken to Rome, House by the Forum. Slaves. Asses' milk. As much gold as I could eat. Then, he, having his way with me had... voom! Like a rat out of an aqueduct.

BRIAN: The bastard!

MANDY: Yeah. So, next time you go on about the 'bloody Romans', don't forget you're one of them.

BRIAN: I'm not a Roman, Mum, and I never will be! I'm a Kike! A Yid! A Hebe! A Hook-nose! I'm Kosher, Mum! I'm a Red Sea Pedestrian, and proud of it! [slam]

Some things in life are bad they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewin' on life's gristle, don't grumble give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best

And always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the light side of life

If life seems jolly rotten there's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
When you're feeling in the dumps don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle, that's the thing

And always look on the bright side of life
Come on, always look on the bright side of life

Pretty much. Live babies to turn into dead soldiers, as Carlin put it.

BTW, Huckster. There is NOTHING Christian about rape. At all. I know you got a book sale boost by convincing people that eating some overpriced chicken made them somehow more Christ-like, but the fact that you are actually seeking to find a silver lining for one of the cruelest things a human being can do to another human being is beyond sickening. And it's all in the interest of boosting your political team, not your God.

That's like walking up to someone who was beaten and crippled, and telling them at least they get the best parking spots now.

You are a snake oil salesman hiding behind a Bible. You've turned the elephant into your golden calf.
Hopefully, the horrible act you're now lamenting the brighter side of never happens to someone you care about. You wouldn't want to choke down the shiat you just spewed out.
 
2012-08-21 03:51:55 AM
There was a correct way to handle this. Surprisingly, the GOP took that option. Mike Huckabee said fark that shiat and barreled through the warning signs right off a cliff before exploding in a spectacular display of WTF.

These people need to be purged. It's not just that they add nothing to the world, it's that they actively work towards destroying it.

It doesn't help that many of them would welcome the apocalypse since they're religious farktards.
