Wow this guy just doesn't know when to quit, I will give him that:

The National Republican Congressional Committee, meanwhile, recently removed Grimm from a fundraising event aimed at supporting the GOP's most imperiled incumbents. Boehner has yet to endorse his reelection bid. And Grimm's campaign manager, Bill Cortese, quit last week.

but this is just sad:

. Grimm, now literally running his own campaign after his lone full-time political aide quit  last week,

Ah yes. Also known as The Gingrich.

We totally need that tag. Maybe as part of the "guest tag of the month" program that I'm JUST SURE IS COMING SOON

Wieners tag?

Maybe he commit so much fraud because he loves America so much. Ever think about that?

Checkmate, libs.

Knowing when to quit is so under rated these days.
If the GOP bails on you, take the hint.

He's guilty of being a dwarf.
 
2014-05-28 01:09:03 PM  
He's holding on for five years so he can become fully vested.
 
2014-05-28 01:18:49 PM  
He basically stole Tyrion's speech from GOT a couple of weeks back.  He'll be demanding trial by combat soon.

FTFA: Asked if he is innocent of the criminal charges, Grimm paused for four seconds, then chuckled softly.
"You know, uh. It depends on what you're asking me of," he said.

So, he basically just admitted he is guilty of some Federal crimes.

It's like at job interviews when they ask you if you have any weaknesses and you say, "No, aside from being a workaholic."

Came to say this. Glad to see it's covered.

You're not on trial for trying the hardest and giving100 percent of yourself and putting your heart and soul into representing the people of Staten Island and Brooklyn.

Damn it! Arizona deserves a tag. Do it now!

It's Fark. The wanking is already implied.

So things are starting to look a bit...  Grimm for the Repupublicans chances of holding that seat.

"There's no question: I've been vilified by the press since the day I got here," Grimm said in a tense 22-minute interview at Hinsch's Diner in Brooklyn.

 Indicted by the feds, vilified by the press, tomato, tomahto...

brap: It's like at job interviews when they ask you if you have any weaknesses and you say, "No, aside from being a workaholic."


"What's your biggest weakness?"

"I'm always honest."

"I don't think that's a weakness..."

"I don't give a fark what you think."

shiat like this always reminds me of a debate among Obama, Clinton, and Edwards where the talking head dude asked each candidate to describe a personal failing or weakness. Edwards and Clinton both went the "I care too much" route.  Gag inducing. At least Obama came up with something even though it was quite benign. it was something along the lines of, "I lose shiat all the time. Don't give me a piece of paper and expect me to have it five minutes from now."

I was gonna post another .gif of the JW wanking guy, but I can't get it to work here... This is a Buzzfeed link, but it's worth checking out, they call it a 'rubbable gif', hold your mouse and scroll back and forth or up and down on the dude and you can totally scrub the gif video back and forth, it's hilarious, and if anyone knows how to post it to Fark(And make it work), this thread could be the productivity killer for the day. Once again, sorry for the BF link, but it's pretty cool.

Just below the video...

"What's your biggest weakness?"

"I'm always honest."

"I don't think that's a weakness..."

"I don't give a fark what you think."


"So, you think that the ability to lie is a strength, and so you are going to try to 'improve' your weaknesses by lying more?

Every so often I have to interview new people. I never ask garbage questions like "what's your greatest weakness", but if some guy appears to be a wanker, I might have to throw that question out there, get the response, and see if I can turn it around on them.

Right.  So, put in a more straight forward way:

"Are you guilty of the criminal charges?"
"Yes."

Malloy: I sincerely regret any inconvenience that I may have caused. And although I have stolen your material goods, let me assure you that your dear town has stolen my heart.
Everyone: Aw!
Skinner: Oh, he's so charming.
Barney: Let's let him go!
Everyone: Yeah!
Wiggum: Oh, sorry folks. [sarcastic] Gee, I really hate to spoil this little love-in, but Mr. Malloy broke the law. And when you break the law, you gotta go to jail.
Quimby: Uh, that reminds me, er, here's your monthly kickback.

Don't worry, he's already a RINO according to some of the comments, and by the time Fox picks this up he'll be a full-blown Democrat.

Staten Island and his portion of Brooklyn are pretty much New Jersey, not surprising they elected this shiathhead.

Sure if you wouldn't mind. It is kind of jarring when Fark goes against one of their memes.

I was wondering why I could hear tiny violins from my apartment window.

What's the problem, GOP? He seems like the perfect Republican to me. The national party should be celebrating this prime example of their ideologies.
