AUDIO-- The always classy Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) insults Pelosi... again: "There’s no facelift with John Boehner. He is who he is."


louie gohmert


"So basically John Boehner became Nancy Pelosi without the charm?"


"For the last two years. Let’s give him credit. There’s no facelift with John Boehner. He is who he is."

The above clip is from GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert's conversation with guest host Larry O’Connor on the Dennis Miller Show, courtesy of Think Progress.

This would be the same Louie Gohmert, a birther, who recently pushed a theory that President Obama helped oust Muammar Qaddafi “so that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya”; who wants to arm teachers with assault rifles; who said that the shootings that took place in the Aurora, Colo. movie theater were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter; who cast President Obama as an "evil emperor"; who joked about hitting “Nancy Pelosi” with a golf club; who lied at tea party rally: "I brought an abortion to show you"; who suggested that NYC 9/11 trials would be an "insane" gambit to create more jobs?...

You get the idea.

This man is an elected representative. Elected!

And because he represents those who voted for him (they did what again?), then clearly, many of his fellow Texans feel it's acceptable to desperately resort to jokes about a fellow Congress member's appearance.

Then again, she's just, you know, a woman.


VIDEO-- Romney supporter: Pres. Obama's father was a "Muslim, an atheist, and a communist... All three."


Election observers believe that Ohio is the state most likely to decide who becomes our next President. These interviews were conducted with Ohio voters at a recent Romney rally in Defiance, OH.

See Interview B-Roll - Social Issues here:

Produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviewer) & Erick Stoll.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A Muslim, and atheist, and a communist walk into a bar... and they were all Barack Obama's dad.

These are the people who can't answer simple questions about their own claims. These are the people who claim their freedoms are being taken away... as they vote to take away the freedoms of others. These are the people who support Mitt Romney.

"Rapists shouldn't be allowed into this country."

I wonder if he'd say the same about ignorami.

"I don't believe that gay people should be given the same rights."

"Same sex marriage is unnatural... it would happen in nature. It doesn't."

PhotOH! Take a "sneak-peak" at Team Romney's latest spelling boo-boo.


Via Andrew Kaczynski

Via our pal, Andrew Kaczynski.

You'd think after the last time, they'd take extra care to hire extra editors to do extra spell-checking to avoid extra humiliation.

Remember Team Romney's previous embarrassment? Why, here it is now!

Amercia the beautiflu.


VIDEO- Rick Perry: "Well, obviously I know there are nine Supreme Court justices." Um...


"Well, obviously I know there are nine Supreme Court justices." Um, no, apparently you don't.

"I don't know how eight came out of my mouth..."  The same way every other embarrassing clusterbabble does, Ricky. You open it, out it comes.

"I can't tell ya... I don't have memorized all of the Supreme Court judges..." Good Yoda impression, Ricky. Look, you're running for president of the United States, and you only needed to come up with one name of one Supreme Court justice to answer one question, so you should have had just a skosh more familiarity with the judicial branch of the government YOU want to lead, you ignoramus.

"That's what Americans care about. Uh, they're not looking for a robot that can spit out, uh, the name of every Supreme Court justice... They're looking for somebody who's got values that are based, uhhhh, with a, with a deep, uh, rudder in the water." Okay, whaa? What was that? As for values, when you get some, please let us know.

And Ricky's right. Americans don't want a robot, they want a living, feeling, human being with a, you know, functioning brain who they can trust not to humiliate themselves every time they get in front of an audience, large or small... as in press conferences and meetings with world leaders.

As for reading teleprompters, not only can President Obama run rings around just about anyone without one, but maybe if Ricky would rely on one once in awhile, he wouldn't keep sounding like Sarah Palin without her hand notes.

And finally, Mr. Forgetful doesn't seem to think having a good memory is all that important. Good luck at those state dinners, champ. Oh, never mind. You'll never make it to the White House anyway.

VIDEO- In his own ad, Rick Perry forgets a word: "That's what our president thinks wrong with America?"


And he thinks "socialist" President Obama is pathetic? Wow. How's that lack of IQ working for you, Ricky?

(Catch the grammatical idiocy at about :05)

Teabagger: Stop hiring in order to hurt Obama. How's that for patriotism?



As Christian Dem in NC over at DKos points out, how patriotic can the tea party be if they're calling for even more unemployed Americans... just to hurt the president?

Denver-area teabagger Melissa Brookstone posted a message on Tea Party Nation's messageboard calling for small businesses to stop hiring in order to take a stand against the Obama administration.

Teabagger Brookstone believes that the Obama administration and the "Democrat-controlled Senate" are socialists, blahblahblah, that radical President Obama is some kind of dictator who, along with his Hollywood BFFs, are anti-business, and anti-free market, and anti-capitalist blahblah.

Here's how it ends:

Resolved that: Our President, the Democrats-Socialists, most of the media, and most of those from Hollywood, have now encouraged and supported "Occupy" demonstrations in our streets, which are now being perpetrated across the globe, and which are being populated by various marxists, socialists and even communists, and are protesting against business, private property ownership and capitalism, something I thought I'd never see in my country, in my lifetime.

I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased.

And as Christian Dem also points out, the comments under the post are just as bad. Here are a  few samples that I grabbed (click on image to enlarge):

America first! USA! USA!

Flashback PhotOh! U.S. borrowed billions to pay for Bush tax cuts


Thanks to Think Progress for this 2001 AP link:

The opponents of the tax cut turned out to be right. The 2001 and 2003 tax cuts combined have blown a $2.5 trillion hole in America’s budget and created deficits stretching on for years.

"Democrats argued that President Bush's $1.35 10-year tax-cut package, which includes the rebate checks, is too large, and they expressed fears it will sow the seeds for a return to days of government red ink."


"...doesn't signal a move from budget surplus to deficit."

(In)famous last words.

And just as they do now, 10 years ago the GOP ignored logic, what few remnants of "compassionate conservative" they had left, common sense, and facts, turned on their bratty little heels, and stomped away to IgnoreTheTruthVille in CorporateLand.  Power and cash mean(t) more to these self-serving dolts than their own country and fellow citizens do.

What they lack in foresight they more than make up for in greed, scumbagitude, and recklessness.
