A Children’s Treasury of Wingnut Responses To Arlen Specter Becoming Gay

This GOP furry is FURRY-ious at Specter, for being a RINO-demo-CRAP-rat.The 14 remaining wingnut Republicans are, of course, furious about Muslin-Communist and Pennsylvania shit monster Arlen Specter doing what they always knew he would do, with the becoming a DemonCRAP, because of course his whole plan all along from the day he was hatched, from a turd, was to stick an Arab Dagger in the backs of the Real Americans, right at the moment when there are basically no Real Americans left, which means … ?! … which means PURGE THE GOP OF OTHER NOT-WINGNUTTY-ENOUGH SENATORS, so that they have maybe 30 seats, maybe 25? Hoor — HUH?!

Let’s see, where should we go to get the funny wingnut comments? Oh, right, FREE REPUBLIC:

  • “Sen. Arlen Pétain, former Vichy Republican…”
  • “EVERYTHING IS NOW OFFICIALLY THE DEMOCRATS FAULT! YIPPEE!”
  • “I’m glad he’s gone. The more honest the choice gets, the better off for America. Let’s get rid of Snowe, Collins, McCain, etc., too. They are also liberals, not to be relied on when conservative issues are on the line. Better to have your friends on your side and your enemies on the other. Specter has been an enemy of conservatism for decades.”
  • “The purge of the RINOs has begun!”
  • “What a POS. Take thev other one’s with you will ya??!! We need an AMERICAN Party- now!”
  • “How is it that here in Texas, one of the most Conservative states in America, has 2 RINO’s for U.S. Senators, and a RINO Gov.? Sure, Perry a.k.a. Silky Pony II is playing like he’s a real tough-guy Conservative (election time); John Cornyn dusts off his cowboy hat for election time commercials – then goes right back to being a useless weak-kneed RINO – who voted for the first $700 Billion Banker Bailout Bonanza, along w/ precious Kay Bailey. Truly sickening.”
  • “Given the leftward shift of NH over the past decade, I really shouldn’t be talking, but there are still a few REAL conservatives left here. Too bad Specter couldn’t take Snowe and Collins with him, or as I like to refer to them in front of my Maine friends, “Obama’s Comfort Girls.” “
  • “Benedict Arnold. Quisling. Spector. Synonymous with TRAITOR. This SOB cares only for himself, not any party, not his country. At 74, and having fought cancer, he still has willingly joined the party of death and Communism.”
  • “Their dumb out of desperation. PA IS A WELFARE STATE! Their only survival at this point is to rely upon Government. It is the perfect example of what Socialism creates.”
  • “Good for him. Another RINO down. Long live honesty.”
  • “Hopefully, McCain and the rest of the leftist/globalist republicans will soon follow.”
  • “YES!!!! First RINO senator PURGED!!!!! HAHAHAHA!!! I think Toomey scared the death out of him!”
  • “This bodes ill…with Sphincter switching the Dems have 60 votes if Freaken gets seated.”
  • “I hope Juan McCain switches – probably to the Mexico PRI Party. I am so sick of RINOs.”
  • “TAKE JOHN MCCAIN AND HIS DAUGHTER WITH YOU!!!!!!!”
  • “The GOPers should rejoice over this. In fact, if they had any balls at all, they should have purged him and others like him from the party years ago.”
  • “This is not just about Democrat vs. Republican. Specter has been in the tank since days on the Warren Commission. His connections to Dulles who was fired as head of the CIA by Kennedy for the Bay of Pigs fiasco and then appointed to investigate his former bosses murder along with Specter smells. Kennedy’s assassination stopped the dismantling of the CIA which Kennedy promised just prior to his demise!”
  • “Dom Obama now has a filibusterer proof majority.. I wonder if it was blackmail, goodies, thuggery or just a case of sleeper cell activation.”

    Too bad Specter couldn’t take Snowe and Collins with him, or as I like to refer to them in front of my Maine friends, “Obama’s Comfort Girls.

    Humorously enough, this guys “friends” refer to him as “humorless drunk asshole from work.”

  2. Custerwolf

    Jesus, that does NOT look real or natural. Of course, neither does the bear for that matter.

  3. EnBuenOra

    Hell, yeah! I support this new Republican Party. If I can donate money for them to keep purging out the RINOs, I will!

    The new pure Republican Party will soon gather its 3 Congressional Representatives from their districts in 3 trailer parks in Mississippi and Alabama, and though they won’t have any real Senators, maybe they will have a “Shadow Senator” from the Lone Star Republic of Tea Party Americans.

  4. Mr Blifil

    A nice cold bottle of Dom Obama would be very refreshing right about now. Celebrate good times…

  5. Lazy Media

    Yeah, OK, whatever. Why can’t we have more posts about Newell’s and Sara’s romantic Virginia getaway?

  6. Texan Bulldoggette

    I like how Walnuts gets shellacked by the collateral damage. And as much as I hate to agree with any of these walking brain donors, I love this phrase “Sure, Perry a.k.a. Silky Pony II”.

  7. ManchuCandidate

    Those fucking globalists.

  10. HandsomePete

    Is that the Penn State Nittany Lion with the gay homosexual Democrat scarf around its neck? Homo!

  11. Johnny Zhivago

    I mean, Specter was single handedly responsible for the Kennedy Assasination, Vietnam, the Iranian Hostage Crisis, $5.00 gasoline, 9/11, the Madrid train bombing, the Chandra Levy disappearance, the Jimmy Hoffa disappearance, the Penn Central bankruptcy, the Hindenberg Disaster, the Tacoma Narrow Bridge Collapse and now the Swine Flu Epidemic.

    The Dumbocrat party can have him!

  12. Woodwards Friend

    Granted, no one was going to confuse John McCain with Jesse Helms but when did he suddenly become the Nelson Rockefeller of the southwest?

  13. Bearbloke

    No doubt the wingnuts are wondering how Specter will say “Allāhu Akbar!!” in Pennsylvanian Dutch…

  14. SuperRounder

    Don’t forget the statement released by GOP leader Michael Steele: “Arlen Specter is wiggity wiggity wiggity wack.”

    Gloria Borger’s laughing at him.

    Maybe Republicans really do believe in homeopathy, and are increasing their power by diluting their concentration.

    what is it when a politician takes Reagan’s big tent concept and expands it to such a degree that the other tent responds by shrinking exponentially and of its own volition, leaving only the carnies?

    Hey. This whackdoodle is at least willing to consider it might have been “Obama goodies” that convinced Specter to change parties. That or the POTUS is micromanaging terror cells. So…progress!

  34. NotNotLickingToads

    Why do the wingnuts LOVE writing like this: “Perry a.k.a. Silky Pony II is playing like he’s a real tough-guy Conservative”? You know, the whole “a.k.a. ” thing…

  40. Dave J.

    [re=301892]El Pinche[/re]: There’s some hilarious back history over with Free Republic–back in the late 1990s when all they had to do was hate Clinton, the freepers were a happy bunch, but then the Bush/McCain primary in 2000 caused them to freak the fuck out and start hating on eachother. Lucianne Goldberg and Michelle Malkin backed Bush, whereas Jim Robinson, aka “JimRob,” the Free Republic founder, backed McCain. So JimRob kicked Lucianne and Malkin out, and then promptly started hating on McCain once he realized that the hardcore conservatives also hated McCain. It’s basically like Romeo and Juliet if the warring families were ignorant rednecks from Fresno. (Which is where Free Republic is based.)

  41. Min

    [re=301890]Mustang[/re]: More importantly, what’s a Silky Pony? It can’t be what it sounds like…a sex act involving a saddle, a riding crop, and a quart of guacamole.

    A “Nittany ” Lion and a puma are the same creature. Other synonyms are mountain lion, cougar and panther. All the same animal.

  48. skyinator

    The new, improved Spector is speaking and there’s tingling going up my leg. He’s “prepared to take on all comers”. Count me in Senator Speckles.

  49. Dave J.

    Sidenote: so this is interesting, something I read over @ Kos: right now, Specter will keep his committee assignments as a Republican, even though he’ll be voting with the Dems. So the GOP automatically loses one vote on every committee where he’s seated as a Republican. In order to get him removed as a Repub on those committees (and seat him with an actual Repub), the GOP will need to pass an organizing resolution, which will be impossible to pass (or bring to the floor) without Democratic support. So now the Dems can basically tell the GOP to eat a bag of dicks unless they want to seat Franken ASAP.

  50. Doglessliberal

    [re=301908]FMA[/re]: “all due respect” is the Northern version of “well, bless her heart”. You get to follow it with a scathing insult.

  51. TeddyS

    The Republican core beliefs now include fewer members of the House of Representatives, less Senators, no White House, no plans of any sort and louder wingnuts on the radio. The GOP extends its appreciation to former President George W. Bush.

    [re=301910]Cape Clod[/re]: Hmmm. Rather surprised at the lack of any ‘dirty, back stabbing Jew’ references, given how racially pure the wingnuts are becoming.

    [re=301859]Aurelio[/re]: Of course you can express that in Hebrew. Unlike American Faux Christians, at least Jews and Muslims know they worship the same God. The argument is just a dispute over to whom that Great Father God left the estate.

    It’d be something like “Elihu Gadolah”, I’d guess:

    HEBREW:

    El=God
    hu=he
    Gadolah=great/might
    (Better Hebrew scholars than I, feel free to fix this! One thing a crazy Fundie cult was good for, they encouraged study of Scripture in original languages, so I picked up a kindergarten vocab.)

    ARABIC:

    Allah=God
    hu=he
    Akbar=great/mighty

    God = God
    FTW = great/mighty

    Perry a.k.a. Silky Pony II I’ve never heard Governor Rick Perry referred to as “Silky Pony II.”

  65. Crab1

    In a decade when we all look back on this day, we will not remember that Arlen Specter’s carcass switched from Republican to Democrat. We will remember that Gov. Rick Perry turns tricks as “The Silky Pony II”.

  66. Nerdalicious

    I think the Ohio Million Man Militia March video from Spector’s neighboring state pushed him over the edge.

    The original “Silky Pony” is John Edwards, a name given to him by Michelle Malkin. Beats me what Perry did to earn the “Silky Pony II” moniker. With Freepers it could be anything. Maybe he shook hands with Obama, instead of spitting in his face.

  78. chapka

    Technically, he’s right that Pennsylvania is a “welfare state,” in that for every $1 we pay in federal taxes, Pennsylvanians receive $1.07 in federal services.

    The top welfare states, of course, are New Mexico ($2.03), Mississippi ($2.02), Alaska, Louisiana, West Virginia…

    Fun fact. There are 18 states that get less in federal services than they pay in federal taxes (including New York, California, Massachusetts, and New Jersey). Out of those 18 states, exactly one (Texas, at $0.94 on the dollar) voted for McCain-Palin.

From this point on, we will be meeting at Busboys and Poets, and we will be sponsoring a concert and new vaudeville series at the Palace of Wonders bar on H Street.

    Snowe and Collins must be feeling pretty lonely right now. I wonder if this pushes them closer to the edge.

    Ah, yes, I remember a similar round of “Quisling! Benedict Arnold! Mephistopheles!” from the right when Ben Nighthorse Campbell switched parties seven seconds after having been elected as a Democrat. Speaking of “Real American” parties.

    OT: Still awaiting news on the Bachman front, but this tasty item was pasted on Politico:

    It was only a matter of time before the CDC discovered an outbreak of Michele Bachmann quotes.

    Bachmann, speaking on Pajamas TV, noted: “I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.”

    The 1976 swine flu scare happened on Gerald Ford’s watch.

    We checked Wikipedia.

    Ford was a Republican.

    Why is John McCain soliciting me for money on the left side of this page? Is this what he’s been reduced to? Why in fact are there ads for Repubtards all over Wonkette? I never see them on redstate.org. Is it because the Repubtards know the redstaters are bunch of cheap-ass SOBs, and the only way they’ll get money is from the bleeding-heart liberals on Wonkette? Seriously.

    [re=302060]Terry[/re]: It’s not Western PA that’s wingnut heaven. More like Lancaster County and certain counties up towards the New York line. Shit, they have Bible theaters in Lancaster, with real, live singing & dancing musical shows about God and Jeebus and Noah’s Ark and King David and suchlike. But that’s due to the fundies who moved in after the Amish fled to Ohio, Indiana, and Utah because of all the tourists. The Mennonites in PA are not wingnuts, they’re more like Quakers who dress funny, ie, they’re into peace and working hard and not killing people with non-white skin.

    yes, lancaster county is wingnut heaven. but also, the amish are still there. also. they are wingnuts too. also the mennonites i know – wingnuts. only vote republican. ever. never met this mythical peace-mennonite, only the ones who wear bonnets to “remind me i’m a servant to the men.” direct quote. there wasn’t even a democratic primary where i grew up b/c only republicans were registered. also. bible theatres, yes. also people who will ask you point blank if you have been saved. also the new fundies, who invent their own churches when the big JC calls, and he calls all the time, he prank calls at 3 am, telling you to put a new church in your hardware store. the big JC rules that land, arlen specter no chance. i always thought the influx of newer wingnuts was from when they built the nuclear power plant. also. kids who didn’t go to homecoming in the 1990s b/c dancing was “of the devil.” like that kevin bacon movie, for real. also. so you see what arlen specter is dealing with here. i always thought he was on their side. i’m sure this will be dismissed in lanco as more meddling by “philiadelphia;” code for the non-blond races. they are drooling over that fla. license plate though.. drooling.

    [re=301937]iolanthe[/re]: I think you’re close with the Hebrew, but instead of Elihu Gadolah for Allahu Akbar, I’d probably make it Elohim G’dolim (or Elohaynu G’dolim). G’dolah is conjugated for singular feminine, and what Semitic language would conjugate God as a female? Hebrew usually puts God in the plural Elohim, and I don’t know why, it’s kind of like how life (CHai) is said in the plural (CHaiim).

    Good job pointing out that not only do Jews and Muslims worship the same god, our names for that god are even closely related linguistically.

    Well you can derive the meaning of Vichy Republican from the only definition of Vichy, i.e Vichy France. Assuming you passed high school freshman U.S History. Not that our education system educates anyone. As for rinos and all this other bullshit, I don’t know. The Republicunts have changed their language since I last took a course on Republicuntanese.

    Lawl at Nerdalicious. I love you. I haven’t played OA yet but I’m sure the anti-communist humor is just as funny as the main game and expansions. Honest to god compared to the real world, 23rd century American wasteland makes sense and is preferable. Maybe if the Grand Old Pissant party get’s their way we’ll eventually nuke ourselves to weed out the commies and we can play the real game.
