Better question: How many conference attendees actually like golden showers?

/probably more than you'd think

When your policy turns out to be a provable failure, it never hurts to redouble your efforts. Dumbasses.

Are Republicans like 8?

A secluded room where a number of conservative men will be hanging out with their dicks in their hands and a tiny Obama lovedoll.  Hmmmm....

Intellectually? Yes.

Maybe 7.

Way to respect the office President of the United States guys. Remember when that was all the rage?

Infantile twits.

You should always respect the President even if you disagree with him*.

*Exempt when President is "liberal", black, Democrat

Faith and Freedom of course meaning the freedom to push your backwards-ass faith on the rest of us.
 
2014-06-20 07:01:33 PM  
Yep. That 's exactly what Jesus would do.

Assholes.
 
2014-06-20 07:03:33 PM  
Also I wonder how many of those get used as butt plugs later tonight.
 
2014-06-20 07:09:26 PM  
We just had to elect a president with sonar dishes strapped to his head.

I'd better stretch a little tonight just to be safe

Trickledownism is the tinfoil hat that Republicans use to keep economics out of their brainwaves.

You naysayers should have more faith in the freedom that the rich allow us in our great country.

Faith and freedom. Freedom to bully the "enemy". Because if there's one golden shower rule I heard about from Christianity it's "bully and ridicule and disrespect thine enemy".

"It was great making your acquaintance, my brother in Christ. It's nice to meet someone like myself who is willing to stand up against the moral decay and lewdness that is pervasive in this country. Now let's go pretend were pissing on Obama."

Actually,  I think it's very clever in a sophomoric sort of way.  Also it might reduce instances of a major problem at Conservative gatherings where delegates assume the urinal cakes are complimentary after-dinner mints.
 
2014-06-20 07:31:21 PM  
I don't even think that cracks the top ten list of anti-Obama things my Republican friends have forwarded me.
 
2014-06-20 07:34:28 PM  
I'm sure this is not the first time these guys have thought about a black guy watching them pee.

They could have also gone with this

api.ning.com

but probably too many of the conventioneers are phobic about a black man touching their ass.

Trollin' trollin' trollin'.

When I saw what the article was actually about, the first offensive thing that came to mind was the Coalition's embracing of a patriarchal model of dominance in which men symbolically feminize a colonialized Other by positioning him as the receptacle of a white man's penile emissions.

I've been in grad school way too long.

Sin_City_Superhero: Stay classy.


In fairness, this kind of stuff it pretty standard for US politics.  Normally I'd put it down as a sort of light-hearted exaggeration acknowledging how we take politics a bit more personally than we should, but with the TP coalition on the rise I kinda suspect the proportion of people to think of this as some kind of serious "take that" is higher than usual.

weltallica: [i.imgur.com image 504x358]


Is that comic equating riot gas to the kinds of horrible shiat usually meant by "chemical weapon", and claiming that bunker-busters aren't conventional explosives?

Because I think the sheer quantity of stupid involved in that may be drowning out any point it's trying to make.
 
2014-06-20 08:08:58 PM  
This is just juvenile. Sure, I remember that you could buy Bush toilet paper but did anyone put it in the stalls at any conferences?
 
2014-06-20 08:11:02 PM  
For all I know the same dirty tick liberal that took the pic put that urinal cake there... smells like an overzealous lib.

That's also a good one, but that makes it sound like a psychiatric disorder rather than a cult.

In this case though, that's probably a pretty accurate description.
 
2014-06-20 08:41:06 PM  
People who say "The illegals just come here because they want a better life" are those who believe in "trickle-down". How else would they get a better life here if not through trickle-down?

Very good point. Why don't you check out the mens room urinals as usual and report back?

Actually, it was a spectacular success for the people it was meant to enrich, the 0.01%, not the rest.

Yes, I do.  Then liberals lost their shiat because 90-year old Jews couldn't figure out how to use the butterfly ballot.  And all pretense of decorum related to the office of the Presidency disappeared overnight.

So you can stop crying now that nobody on the right feels obligated to pretend the Moron-In-Chief is competently advancing the country's interests.
