I'd say this could not happen to a bigger asshole, except I know these Teabaggers are doing this for utterly racist reasons disguised as something political/I don't care to read the article for their flimsy rationale, and frankly I find those cocks far more odious than some selllout politician who has no clue how the other half lives even if he happens to be not as pasty-white as your average Republican.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: Not at all surprising.  After all, they're still trying to impeach Obama.

Being that stupid has to hurt.  It just has to.


Actually quite the opposite remarkably. We found through several key experiments in my dunge...err... basement laboratory that the retarding factors found in persons of sub par IQs work very similarly to general anesthesia. In fact this unique substance is so remarkable that often the subjects would begin to reproduce it in their own bodies once it had been introduced to their system! Alas that was the problem, you see there are very few mainstream medical practices that have use for a perpetual retardant. It doesn't stop there though, amazingly once subjects escaped....I mean were introduced back into their daily lives they were able to spread the numbing agent to others slowing the thought processes and physical nervous responses of the populace around them just by talking! In fact the Deferment of Upper Mental Biofunctions compound (or D.U.MB. for short) is so effective I postulate that some of the victi...subjects have died already and just don't know it yet.

James!: BitwiseShift: (the most common word for Tea in the world)

Wait, so if someone offers you Chai Tea they're really offering you Tea Tea?


Just don't eat the brown acid when they offer that.

If they can get the legislation passed and are able to get enough support to have Rubio recalled then that is a perfectly legitimate action.  Unlike 37 attempts to repeal ACA, which is pure window dressing.

Now, if the people of Texas would start the same process and recall Ted Cruz I would call that progress.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the rising star in the Big Tent Party!

...you know what would happen if Rubio could be recalled?

A Democrat takes his seat.

SeesWhatYouDidThere: FTFA "KrisAnne Hall says she and a group of other conservatives are helping draft legislation that would allow senators in the state to face recall elections"

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but Rubio is a US Senator.  Yes, he represents Florida, but he is part of the US government.  So how does legislation in Florida affect federal election law?  I could understand it for state Representatives and Senators, but not federal.



Your mistake was thinking Teabaggers knew what the f*ck they are doing.

They are having the 38th vote today I think and Gingrich says it's totally gonna work this time.

The world would be a better place, probably, if Newt would just follow heart and get a job at a zoo.

When are they going to vote on whether to go to war with Japan, since the incoming freshmen didn't get a chance to weigh in on that?

Rwa2play: Diogenes: Rwa2play: clambam: Hispanic votes? We don't need no Hispanic votes!

The repubs could actually lose Florida if they decide to thoroughly dick over the state's Cubans. But, whatever. Pray continue with your extended political suicide.

It's not just the Cubans, it's the growing non-Cuban Hispanics that are making Florida home.  They were a big reason why Obama won Florida last year; pissing them off might not be wise at all for Florida GOPers.

Exactly.  Florida's Cuban community isn't always on the same page as Latinos from other countries.  And the Cuban demographic is no longer dominant here.

Worse, the majority of them are either legal immigrants or born here but identify as Hispanic.  Again, as much as the Florida GOP would love to enact some voting restrictions, it would be very unwise to start alienating the Hispanics in the next few years.  Florida might stay solid blue for a generation or two if Florida Republicans continue with the derp.


Just how blue does the native population have to be when old people from all over the East Coast (I'm guessing that Arizona is full of former Left Coasties) go there to die?  People get old, they go to Florida, and they vote tea party (or whatever passes for right wing derp at the time).  It isn't like these people will care about what happened in Florida, it doesn't appear that they have any idea what happened at the time (ask a tea bagger what happened under Clinton, I think plenty of farkers can remember that one).

It sounds good that going full derp leads you to learn you should never go full derp.  I think that if there is any place you can get away with it, it is in Florida (although it doesn't look like Arizona works that way statewide).

Duh.

If you are ignorant enough to believe in trickle down economics and other libertarian bullshiat you are ignorant enough to be a racist too.

A-HAHAHAHAHA! A-HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! This is farking hilarious.

I'm glad the Teabaggers went back to being ridiculous and precious as opposed to loud and dangerous.

Witty_Retort: I had the idea of starting a Super PAC with the stated goal of getting the moast conservative guy elected. Could easily raise money through facebook and fw:FW:fw: emails. Then spend money on hookers consultants and running attack ads against all the "sane" conservatives  to primary them out and have the most bat-guano insane guy on the R side of the ballot.


And this most bat-guano insane guy on the R side of the ballot would still get a significant portion of the vote because Jesus.  Also, not being blah or messican would instantly earn him a few points above Allen West.

How can we egg on these idiots? It's not enough just to turn on each other in the headlines... I want to see them start throwing campaign money at their infighting.

What does any Teabagger know about the law or the Constitution?

I'm curious whether ex post facto would apply. If the law didn't permit recalls before he got elected, could he be recalled under a law implemented before the next six-year term for that seat?

There is a case in our county which says, probably not.

I thought the "Taxed Enough Already" party was only worried about taxes?
