South Miami Mayor: "Rubio is an idiot."

Marco Rubio

From the Things We Already Know Department: Marco Rubio is an "idiot." I know, I know, that's redundant, but there still may be someone out there reading this who isn't aware. In this particular instance, it's about climate change. Rubio the Genius-o doesn't believe that climate change is man-made-o:

"I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except it will destroy our economy."

His brilliance is blinding, isn't it? Kinda like the sun that's baking Mother Earth to death.

He's clearly competing with former Alaskan Half-Gov Ignoramette McVacant for who can stick their head in the sand more deeply. It's a toss-up, but McVacant has a slight edge. But I digress. Back to Florida...

Here is a headline and sub-headline at The Guardian:

Miami, the great world city, is drowning while the powers that be look away

Low-lying south Florida, at the front line of climate change in the US, will be swallowed as sea levels rise. Astonishingly, the population is growing, house prices are rising and building goes on. The problem is the city is run by climate change deniers.

Via TPM:

Rubio is among those Florida politicians, including Gov. Rick Scott (R), who've refused to address the warnings of those experts.

"Rubio is an idiot," South Miami Mayor Philip Stoddard said, as quoted by The Guardian. "He says he is not a scientist so he doesn't have a view about climate change and sea-level rise and so won't do anything about it."

Stoddard noted that "the waters are rising." True.

And Marco Rubio is in way over his empty little head.

Rick Perry and his many Moments of Oops... including on immigration

oops rick perry smaller

Rick Perry has had so many Moments of Oops that they're hard to count, let alone keep track of. But Rachel Maddow did just that. She compiled the best (meaning, the worst) Rick Perry "oops" reel in recent memory, all in one cringe-worthy segment.Why, here's one now!

rick perry stupidity

And that collection puts into context why Rick Perry would be a terrible, horrible, no-good president. That context includes his new-found, hypocritical, irrelevant "tough guy" attitude about immigrants. Rachel explains below:

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Maddow:

He thinks about what he wishes he could have done differently or wishes what he could do over about his presidential run. Because other than his new fashionable eye glasses, the one major makeover that Governor Rick Perry has gone through since his disastrous presidential run, is that he no longer makes the mistake of talking about immigrants, or the issue of immigration, without pounding his chest...

Rick Perry's proposal to President Obama for what ought to be done, the one thing that President Obama says Rick Perry demanded of him yesterday that's not already being proposed by the Obama administration, the one thing Governor Perry wants, is that he wants the National Guard sent to the border....

It's very important to him that he sounds tough on this issue. And there's nothing tougher than sending troops.

But troops and the National Guard are also completely irrelevant to this particular crisis on the border right now... As an empirical matter, putting troops in armed positions on the border is irrelevant to this crisis. It would have absolutely no effect on this crisis.

Because what sets this border crisis apart is that this is not a situation in which people are sneaking across the border. This particular crisis is one that manifests as people walking up to border patrol agents and surrendering themselves to them. Walking up to border patrol agents and turning themselves in...

How is having troops there going to help that not happen?...

And that is why nobody asks Governor Rick Perry for his opinion on big policy matters.

oops he's doing it again

Yes, Glenn, dead people often lose a lot of weight.

It's one of the perks of dying ... six years ago:

There he is, ladies and gents, Glenn Beck-- living down to his usual misrepresentations and lack of credibility.

(Added: Yes, I knew he was referring to Jr. In that case, he should have added the Jr. Entirely mockworthy.)

"You do realize that Washington DC is not the real world, don’t you?"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

backfire plan fail smaller boy light socket

Today’s guest post by the one, the only, Will Durst:

THE BATTY BATTALION

You do realize that Washington DC is not the real world, don’t you? It’s a state of mind. An altered state of mind. Where you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Slammed when you stand and rammed when you run. Berated if you lie and lambasted for the truth. Where even the slightest of breeze can carry the pollen of disaster. And the pack on top knows the best way to avoid getting a face full of disaster pollen is to spread the dried residue of other exquisite catastrophes first. Ream or be reamed.

And as far as DC stories go, a lack of misfortunes is no good reason not to speak of them. So now the Washington punditry has banded together to float the notion that President Obama’s second term agenda has stalled. That he’s such a lame duck the presidential limousine should be sporting a blue placard hanging from the rear view mirror. Best thing to do is to burrow deep and lie low. Give up and crawl into the overhead compartment of Air Force One and eat marzipan in the dark.

Now. Already. 4 months in, with 44 left to go. Holey moley, guys. You left the movie before the opening credits rolled. More stuff happens after the overture, you know. Have you ever made it through an entire entrée? Would hate to be your date at a baseball game; you sound like the kind of people who leave between the top and bottom halves of the second inning. Must be Dodger fans.

It takes a special kind of degenerative myopia to craft these precocious accusations. First off, you need to be blind as an Oedipal bat to ignore the exhaustingly recalcitrant House Majority, including leader John Boehner, who would rather be seen washing skid mark undies in a Congressional hallway water fountain, than work with the President.

To fail to witness the GOP defy the will of 90% of America while appeasing their NRA overlords, your sunglasses must be cut from slabs of granite. Wearing your hoodie on backwards to not be aware that both sides of the aisle are concerned with one thing and one thing only: re- election. Suffer from tertiary retinal jam not to notice you’re jumping on a bandwagon so flimsy a lighting moth would crash through the floorboards.

Let’s say the coo- coo for Cocoa Puffs commentators are correct. That the Kenyan Kid has wasted the tiny political capital his November election earned. What’s he supposed to do now? Take up hydroponic gardening to supply dispensaries in Colorado and Washington? Wink- wink. Nudge- nudge.

Engage in a lengthy bout of Hawaiian location scouting for potential Presidential Library sites? Establish residency in some backwater state so Michelle can run for Senator? Canvas talent agencies for potential 2017 speaking engagements? Spend an inordinate amount of time in the basement White House bowling alley to get his average up for the Ex Presidents League?

And since we’ve agreed his Presidency is over, why stop there? Since the number one GOP strategy since January of 93 has been to deny any Democratic President even the tiniest of victories, this might be an unimpeachable time to preemptively besmirch Hillary Clinton’s upcoming first term as an unmitigated calamity and complete and utter failure. Unless you’re into self- fulfilling prophecies.

Mitt Romney: "It's good to live a normal life again." Um, that implies he did before.

romney gaffe cartoon

Just because the presidential election is over doesn't mean that Willard M. Romney is done making gaffes, inane comments, or revealing more of his awkwarditude.

Taegan pulled this quote from Romney's interview with Dennis Miller on Miller's radio show. Yes, Romney and The Artist Formerly Known as Funny were on the air together. I'm surprised radios all over America didn't explode:

"I have to admit, being able to go back to our own life and going to the grocery store and shopping on my own is kind of nice to be by myself without a bunch of people hanging around with me. I like the life of being an American citizen. It's good to live a normal life again."

Earth to Willard: You haven't ever lived a "normal" life.

Wait... He said that he "likes the life of being an American citizen." So he-- dun-dun-dun-n!-- wasn't one before now? This from the guy who questioned President Obama's citizenship:

Oh, but I kid the Mittster.

Yes, according to Very Dedicated to the Constitution Guy, we are to "suport" the right to "own bare arms"... according to the "Secont Ament." I'm relieved to hear that, since I own two bare arms, and even a bare the-rest-of-me.

Actually, the Second Amendment mentions a little something about a "well-regulated militia," presumably in uniform. A bare-armed militia would get plenty of laughs, but not much protection from the elements. And don't get me started on the chafing.

As a special added bonus I'm adding a few other choice examples of the genius behind right wing messaging:
