Thursday Open Thread [3.21.13]

Filed in National, Open Thread by on March 21, 2013

So Sen. Saxby Chambliss has to become gay apparently before he’ll support marriage equality. Does he also have to become black to support equal rights for African Americans? Does he need to get a sex change before he can respect women? I’m telling you, it is become clearer every day: if you are a selfish narcissist, then you belong in the Republican Party.

Massachusetts sheriff Joseph McDonald (R) is defending a joke he made about President Obama during a breakfast for Republicans when he said the ghost of Abraham Lincoln visited Obama in his dreams and gave him advice on how to improve the country: “Go to the theater.” Said McDonald: “It was absolutely in jest. It was a joke. It wasn’t a new joke by any means.”

It’s an unfunny “joke,” and saying it makes Sheriff McDonald an asshole. What is it with Republican Sheriffs being complete and total assholes. And something tells me that if I made that joke about George W. Bush, Sheriff McDonald wouldn’t laugh. He would arrest me.

A prominent Texas Teabagger was once a member of the American Fascist Party, to the surprise of no one. But, seriously, the American Fascist Party? Not too subtle.

    In his defense, he thought he as joining the “Fastest” party.

    Well, at least if you told that joke in Sussex County, you’d be safe. The Republican Sheriff there could not arrest you. He can’t arrest anyone…


  3. heragain says:

    No, if he had a sex change he might learn to respect trans people. Cis females are still on their own.

    Speaking of which, has everyone seen THIS one?

  4. Rusty Dils says:

    In every liberal argument there is always a falsehood. Today’s example. Joe Biden, trying to drum up support for gun control, explains that his good friend Gabby Gifford was shot and mortally wounded.

  5. socialistic ben says:

    yes, referencing something kinda off that JOE BIDEN said is proof that liberals are liars.
    rusty, remind how much Romney won California by again? I mean, you were totally sure he was gonna win California. I missed the election, how bad did he beat Obama?

    Thanks for that link.

    Thanx again to Puck for an interesting view on Delaware’s political landscape.

    Today we will publish a post from the only marxist in the Delaware Referendum Committee.

    Fortunately Obama is probably quite safe because giving Jamie Dimon cuff links with the Presidential Seal of Approval and protecting the “too big to jail” global banksters in every way possible is a long way from trying to issue a currency free of debt and interest. But no one wants to overturn the tables of the money changers and drive them out for the sake of the people like a real leader would and then wind up crucified later. There again, Andrew Jackson didn’t wind up dead… but the modern Democratic party seems to be full of corrupt, degenerate cowards just like the Republicans.

  9. Jason330 says:

    I appreciate your comment length comment.

    As soon as the Delawareans become Swedes they will need to relate to and form an opinion about Olof Palme. They will need to reflect upon why a man born into the upper classes of Swedish society became a Social Democrat and why his reign as prime minister from 1969 to 1986 attracted both hero worship and hatred.

    Sven, imo, you are coming very close to being blog graffiti. You are simply tagging this site, and what started out as humorous is now becoming tedious.

  12. Aoine says:

    THANK YOU – pandora!

  13. mynym says:

    “As we are here on earth and we’re doomed to be on this earth, we should try to make life as descent as possible. That is really very simply the basis of my political ideology, that’s what politics is about.” –Olof Palme Sounds better than the hopium and change of this Bu$hBama/NWO thing and the other crackheads (inc.) and banksters running Team America, World Police into the ground. Anyway, is it time for war with Iran yet… or are Americans too busy with checking their own underwear for WMDs?

  14. Sven-Erland says:

    Pandora, you’re flattering me, I’m afraid I have a long way to go before I become tedious. I fear that what started out as humorous, still is humorous.

    Let’s not dwell on that – time will tell.

  15. Jason330 says:


  16. Sven-Erland says:

    Anyhow, Pandora, you shouldn’t focus on the negative – focus on the positive: your contribution to the Delaware Referendum. It would be a pleasure for us if you would write a text as a guest blogger.

    What would you like to write about?

  17. Sven-Erland says:

    Bot? Seriously? You disappoint me Jason. Before you suggest that you should think about who would even consider it worthwhile doing that to this site. The only answer would be the Delaware Republicans – and to be honest: after finding out that their candidate in the mayoral election in Wilmington wrote a bad check for the filing fee I doubt that they would have the capacity to set up a practical joke like that.

  18. Jason330 says:

    That’s exactly how a bot would respond.

  19. socialistic ben says:

    glad to see SmarterChild got a new job.

  20. Sven-Erland says:

    We have had many readers from the US in general this week, and from Delaware in particular. Thank you for reading the blog, we are glad that you can hear us. We can hear you – at least we would like to.

    We would be happy to welcome Delawareans with an interest in politics and society as guest bloggers. Your local perspective would be much appreciated by our Swedish readers.

    Id be happy to be on a panel to discuss this with your esteemed committee for a small honoraria, travel expenses and lodging. The same deal applies to sit in your dorm room and discuss it with your esteemed school mates.
