Where the dickens is that knavish wingnut reporter Dave Weigel these days? In St. Louis, at the “How to Take Back America Conference,” along with every famous racist worth his or her salt. The hottest panels this weekend focused on: how to kill black people, why black people are worse than white people always, and how do we stop the black people from being alive? Also, this photo (of Dave took many more): “The golden wrench that Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Tom Price (R-Iowa) presented to Joe the Plumber.” Uhh. [Washington Independent]

    I had one of those gold pipe wrenches, which lost its usefulness upon the advent of plastic pipe about a hundred years ago. I wondered where it went.

    That poor Weigel kid and his utterly wasted life.

    Why do these morans still see Joe the Plumber as some sort of political asset?

    So much stoopid all in one place. A blogger’s dream! A county’s nightmare?

    Which tool is Joe?

    Did they at least hit him over the head with it?

    The power possessed by that wrench is the only thing standing between us and mass gay married socialism.

    Pity that Dave Weigel didn’t grab the pipe wrench and go all HULK SMASH on these fuckers.

  • the problem child

    I just love the word “wrench”. And I love wrenches. So easy to use, both on pipes (and on plumbers). And no one ever questions why you have one in your basement.

  • freakishlystrong

    When will these fools realize we “took the country back” last November?

    Oh, and wingnutz? His name is Sam and he is not a plumber.

    From Weigel’s bloggel:

    “It’s dark, but the books at Joe’s place setting are What American Needs to Know About the Quran by William Federer and The 5000 Year Leap by W. Cleon Skousen.”

    Not mentioned is the teacup, which Joe the Plumber held with his pinky finger sticking out, all dainty-like and shit. He also swallowed the teabag.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Nothing says you made it like a gold spray painted monkey wrench.

    WTF was going on at that table? A pipe wrench, a (probably fake) damask tablecloth, wineglasses w/water in them, and some plates with chicken bones, a fake Oriental on the floor…looks like a failed still life titled “Why Conservatism is a Pile of Dirty Dishes.”

    @Extemporaneous: The 5000 Year Bleep is all the rage among wingnuts, who formerly derided reading as elitist, liberal activity suitable only for commies. Not that I believe for a second that these reverse-evolved primates can read.

  • GuyClinch

    Joe, in his haste to find a dentist after trying to eat the wrench, accidentally left it on the table.

    [re=421031]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: How appropriate they gave Joe the Bumbler a Golden Monkey Wrench, since that’s exactly what he threw into McCain’s political works later fall. The only appropriate award for Sarah Palin would be a broken microphone carved from the pelvic bone of a full-grown moose mounted on a stack of canceled credit cards.

    [re=421112]Rotundo[/re]: Congressman with Gold Paing Fu Manchu beard from huffing. Sorry for the redundant gold paint. As for an award for Caribou Barbie, why not squirt some caribou scat in gold while you’re at it? Alternatively dog poop of a proper size for sled dogs might work too. It’s all gold, just like the snow…

    I like the pic with Joe the P, Huckabee, and the cute blonde girl. I’ll bet the two of them hooked up. After they ditched the girl.

    I think he needs to commission a portrait of himself Boris Vallejo style with that wrench fighting off the hordes of darkness. Throw in some big boobie cheesecake girl from Wasilla, AK in a chain mail bikini. The result would be pure AWESOME.

    [re=421026]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: The sexual tension in that picture of Cynthia is palpable. I think she must have hidden some trashy romance novel inside of her “Constitution”: The darkly handsome Raphael had seduction in his blood. But Cynthia presented his biggest challenge. Plain and dowdy in outward appearance, her conservative clothing could not conceal her luscious feminine figure – nor her wildcat temperament!

    Sadly, I had not previously heard of the 5000 Year Leap. (I blame my public school education.) But now I have discovered this about the author: “In June 1935, immediately after graduating from San Bernardino Valley Jr. College, where he served as Student Body President, Skousen began working for the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. This led into a career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) the following year, which lasted until 1951.”

    Since I try to read everything written by former junior college student body presidents, gotta read the Leap. With my pants off.

    Perhaps you didn’t know that wrenches are a common gift of affection among the pundirati. Apparently, Bill Safire gave one to Daniel Schorr for “throwing a wrench in the works” of the Nixon Administration. Or maybe so Dan Schorr could be the shit out of Joe the Plumber? It’s on Dan Schorr’s desk to this very day.

    Are those passports next the golden wrench? They don’t look American. Please let them be Texas succession passports. Those guys are going to need some serious background screening before they are issued visas to most countries.

    Visa Question 1: Do you own a gun? Options: Yes / No, I own more than 1.
    Visa Question 2: Are you a member of a rebel or successionist movement?
    Visa Question 3: Do you support genocide of a particular race or other group of people?

    I’m sure there are more, but those 3 should confine most of the unwelcome to within their borders.

    Joe took a look
    at the wrench
    and asked:

  • gabbyhayes

    this will probably blow my membership instantly, but when I was in the military, I knew some guys who initiated the new guy in the plumbing shop by greasing up a big pipe wrench like that and shoving it up said new guy’s brown betty. So we can easily imagine what happened later between Joe and his congressmen friends.

    Am I still a part of Wonketteville?

  • gabbyhayes

    Oh, I was going to mention, all those guys in the plumbing shop are republicans now. All on the dole. All drunks and on drugs.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [re=421677]gabbyhayes[/re]: You are now! We take pride in our many ways of describing buttsecks. Your story has so many of our favorite targets — military guys, republicans, common household tools. And for me, personally, the phrase “shoving it up…” is practically an invitation to start fapping. I look forward to reading your smart sexy funny SEXY comments in the future.

  • heroinmule

    The poor servers at this function! I would have farted on all the spoons.

    To which Joe replied,

    “Thanks for the big… metal…thingy (What is this used for?).”
