You know, I keep thinking there's a bottom to Republican derp, and then something like this happens.

Someone just told me there was fighting going on in the NOLA Superdome. #shocked

I don't get it.

What? He's just a normal Republican. They hate Americans.
 
2013-02-04 08:28:08 PM  
It must just be refreshing for these GOP guys to be assholes out in the open like this. So tired of hiding their anger in code words and back rooms. Must be nice to just get out there and be a complete tool.

It's a black hole of sorts.  There's an infinite mass of derp, you'll never reach the bottom.

GOP tweeting trifecta complete
 
2013-02-04 08:29:44 PM  
So this is what Twitter is for!  Drunk idiots making bad decisions in private, but SURPRISE! things you put online are public, no matter where you typed them.
 
2013-02-04 08:32:46 PM  
God, what a twat.

I wonder if it ever occurs to people like this they're hurting the Republican party more then they're helping it and they simply don't care.  That, or he's really this stupid and thinks this is a productive use of his time.
 
2013-02-04 08:33:49 PM  
GET IT? Because the last time we heard of a lack of power in the Superdome his failure to provide basic necessities for people suffering in the aftereffects of one of the worst national disasters in American history caused desperate people to resort to violence in order to provide for the basic needs of themselves and their loved ones. HILARIOUS.

As a white guy in the South, I'm all too familiar with what Republicans really think, when they think they are around a safe crowd. It is refreshing actually to see they are starting to get the nerve to be honest with America about how much they hate they fellow man.

Nonsense.  They have a deep love for - and a deep commitment to - fully one percent of Americans.

after all the whining about people persecuting, they just can't keep themselves from expressing their bigotry.one would think they would have learned something.

The same reason why countless other disgraced conservatives are talk show/radio/blog personalities (i.e, G. Gordon Liddy, Oliver North, Elliott Abrams, Mark Fuhrman, etc). When you fark things up so badly that you destroy your mainstream reputation and ruin all your future prospects in having a real respectable career, there's always peddling to dittoheads to make some easy cash to pay the bills.

Sometimes I think I have really poor impulse control.

Then I read some people's comments on twitter.

As a parent if you buy or allow your kids to buy or download a Chris Brown album then you have failed as a parent.

As a grown-up business owner if you give Michael Brown a job then you have failed as a human.

Perhaps fortunately for Democrats, Katrina preceded Twitter by about a year.

2013-02-04 08:58:28 PM  
You know, here's the thing - the guy you want in charge of something like FEMA should never find himself with a talk radio job. But it's all political - instead of some bureaucratic wonk with enough charisma to lead a department, you find someone you owe a favor to or who will help you politically. And that leads to morons like Brownie.

Both sides are guilty of it, though the GOP is that much worse at it, seeing as how they want to discredit government in order to privatize its services. A tactic which has worked incredibly well, I might add.

Last fall, Brown criticized President Barack Obama for responding to Hurricane Sandy too early.

I wonder if there's one of those wonderful German compound words to describe the feeling of being proud for something everyone else believes is your most shameful and infamous moment. Because Michael Brown apparently has that feeling.

fusillade762: Someone just told me there was fighting going on in the NOLA Superdome. #shocked

I don't get it.


He's alluding to the reports - which later turned out to be bogus media scaremongering - of violence in the Superdome during the aftermath of Katrina.

Which makes it doubly douchey. Perpetuating a myth AND being glib about a tragedy he was a major player in. That guy is a true piece of garbage, apparently.

Never, ever underestimate the demand for sheer craziness in America. If we could figure out a way to turn into energy, we'd ween ourselves off oil and coal instantly.
 
2013-02-04 09:21:19 PM  
The real shocking thing about this tweet is that Michael Brown is an even bigger douchebag than I previously thought.

Blame everyone else but yourself for your ineptitude, that's what real leaders do.

I worked for 4 years parking cars.  Many of my "co-workers" were blatantly racist, and assumed I was as well, due to me being white.

I stopped trying to change peoples minds after about the 5th conversation I had.  I learned to ignore the n bomb, or the jew comments, etc...

You cant fix stupid or ignorant, and it's not worth your time trying.
 
2013-02-04 09:33:49 PM  
Wait, he also criticized Obama for responding to Sandy too quickly?

I guess Brownie isn't incompetent after all; he accomplished exactly what he set out to.

Although, I suppose that's just a different kind of incompetence.

I used to work in disaster relief for the Fed so I just want to comment about the Bush years; the reason it was a disaster was because the people he put in charge were trying to dismantle the agencies. I am not joking. They put people in charge who were actively hostile towards the agency they were running. We all remember Romney and other republicans, right before Irene hit, talking about how disaster response should be left to the states and privatized (I forget his exact wording but it was something along those lines.) One can easily see how that mentality work out during Katrina, Rita, Wilma where they basically suffered a severe case of cognitive dissonance between what their personal philosophies were and what they actually had to do. It is no wonder the response was so messed up.

Michael Brown is one of those people who ended up with a face that exactly represents his inner self.
 
2013-02-04 09:38:31 PM  
Jeez, it seems true that the rightwings and Bush/Brown regarded Katrina as a welcome cleaning event for New Orleans  that would showcase how unfit the poorer residents where and drive them out  so that well-connected responsible people could redevelop where they lived and make good profits.

I wonder if we could kidnap him and dump him on the streets of the French Quarter to bring the community together in a good old fashioned tarring and feathering.

Occasionally, some individuals escape the derp singularity, like Hawking radiation.

But I think the GOP would object to being called anything black.

Perhaps it should be considered a complex fractal pattern.  The derp scales infinitely.  Each "Fark Independent" insists that his individual value set is a unique snowflake, although his personal derp uncannily resembles that of the GOP as a whole.  A Koch Snowflake, as it were.

Actually I think this is well documented.  Republicans tend to staff these agencies with political appointees that have never held positions in the agencies that they're working in and don't know what they're doing.  Democrats tends to staff them with seasoned vetrans who are good at their jobs and effective.

Conservatives believe government doesn't work and when they get elected, they try to prove it.
