Richard C Stanford: Walking proof that Democrats can out-derp conservatives. Let's see some more.

Really.  I'll take just Michele Bachmann on my fantasy derp team and you can have as many Dems as you want and I will crush you.

Here is just a small sample

Dinki: This is actually a republican idea- subsidize employee pay below a certain threshold. Then you could justify doing away with the minimum wage. It's a win-win! For employers anyway.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Frank N Stein: This word seriously needs to die.

I second this motion.

But then how would we summarily dismiss all things from the mouths of our opposition as non-thought?

Have any of you actually played Fantasy Derp-ball before?  You can't all draft whoever you want.  Otherwise Michele Bachmann would be on every team.

Of the many ways to allocate politicians to teams, the most popular are draft and auction.  If there had been a draft last year, Michele Bachmann would've been the #1 pick, and would therefore be unavailable to other teams.

Typically in a draft you play it safe with your 1st round pick.  You want a consistent, bell cow producer of Derp with low risk of injury/impeachment/imprisonment.  You save the high-risk/high-reward picks for the middle rounds.  Tea Party freshman?  Majority-minority district Democrat who won election on a platform of ethnic grievance?  These are good choices for the middle rounds.

The best fantasy players don't just go by name value- that's a recipe for winning last year's title.  Smart players use advanced metrics.  Is a Senator running for re-election?  Is there a chance of him/her being primaried by a partisan ideologue?  From regional economic data to DARC (Derp Above Replacement Congressman), the savvy player keeps track of hundreds of variables.

mrshowrules: Let's play fantasy derp football.  You get 4 picks from here:

What's the scoring system?  Is a rape comment worth 6 points or 4?  Is this a point-per-ACA repeal vote league?  Are there bonuses for denying evolution in a debate?

Pants full of macaroni!!: Sheila Jackson Lee is an utter moron, and is thus representative of what ALL democrat Liberals believe.

and like the highly esteemed George W. Bush, Jr,  all Repugs are rocket scientists.  Jr. was born on 3rd base than still thinks he hit a Triple.

This only makes you look stupid.


Not Rep. Lee.


Seriously, y'all are a bunch of shiat-for-brains pretending your potato-hardest that she really meant we should give unemployment benefits to people with jobs.


Hurr durr herp derp derp har Lee sez "gib bennies to workers" har har aint she stoopid hurr.

In case the above is somehow unclear, no one with a functioning frontal lobe would think Rep. Lee intended to say what the headline claims she intended to say.  If you think she meant that, you are stupid.  If you have to work that hard to smear someone you are an utter failure at life.

impaler: In order to receive unemployment insurance, you have to first be employed. I.e. be a "working man or woman." But I digress.

Obviously that is what she meant.

How is what she said somehow dumber that this?

"I do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks that they're paid for. If you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to these workers,"
