Whatever You Are Thinking Right Now, It Counts As Making Fun Of Trig


Did you know there was a Rick Perry-Sarah Palin rally? Can you tell there was a Rick Perry-Sarah Palin rally?

Sometime yesterday or maybe just some other day this or last week, Rick Perry, Sarah Palin and racecar driver and/or executionist Ted Nugent held a rally for let’s say the Super Bowl. Houston Press ace photographer “Bryan Fotographer” was there, because that’s his beat, images. Anyway, some of the photos, like this one of a human-shaped bag of meth covered entirely in sequins are quite comical. Enjoy/weep! [Especially you, tipster "Monsieur Grumpe"]

    So Governor Perry prefers the homeschooled variety and this kid was sent out to find some for him? Isn’t he worried that Chris Hansen will get wind of this?

  2. charlesdegoal

    More retarded than Americans in general: Texans. Scary. Could not look beyond the fifth photo without feeling ill.

  3. V572625694

    Ted Nugent is just what the Snowbilly/Gayhair 2012 ticket needs in the way of star power.

    “Leave your cares behind,
    Come with us and find
    The pleasures of a journey
    To the center of your asshole”

  4. Ruhe

    [re=509886]Dashboard_Buddha[/re]: As stupid as the kid, I didn’t notice the spelling either. Sad all around.

  5. TVarmy

    I thought it was Katey Perry, who was also raised in an insular Christian schooling environment, but then decided to write pop songs about gay kissing. Catchy ones, too. Really, she’s an inspiration for all of us Americans, and kudos to that kid for recognizing pop greatness, even if she is a prodigal son of the homeschool movement.

  6. Texan Bulldoggette

    Perry was too much of a pussy to have this in Austin. He knows folks here would have managed to spell ‘Fucking Retard’ correctly on their signs & pelted them with tamales & empty Blue Moon bottles.

  7. Gopherit

    [re=509886]Dashboard_Buddha[/re]: If only they had been against the pubic option, they wouldn’t have had to worry about homescholing.

  8. donner_froh

    Caption on the next picture after meth-fuel Uncle Sam is:

    “Sarah Palin looks more and more like a Memorial housewife every day.”

    Probably funny but I don’t get the reference.

  9. assistant/atlas

    Is it sad that it took me a half-dozens slides before I figured out that The Houston Press is a libtard satirical “alt-weekly” blogsheet?

    I say no, no it is not. Because satire is dead. The Republitards killed it.

  10. Jumping Jim

    My kid goes to a very good public school and she isn’t very good at spelling either.

    Laugh at your own risk, many people laughed at the 1964 Republican convention and 4 years later after complete Democratic Party screw ups, and yeah, thinking health care, while important, was more important than jobs to the majority of Americans, was a screwup.

    It’s always the economy, and however he came to own it, Obama now owns it.

    You can make fun of these people all you want, and by God, it is easy to do, but do not underestimate what they represent.

  11. ohiolobbyist

    Am I the only one who thinks that the photographer’s name being fotographer is the most interesting part of the story?

  12. Crank Tango

    [re=509900]Prommie[/re]: LOL I always have a problem with that one.

    And maybe they meant Homeskoaler?

  13. letmetellyou

    I imagine “scholers” is pronounced much like “Skoal” which means, by transitive property, that this kid is a Skoal Rebel follower who misspelled Skoal.

  14. Paul Tardy

    I hate to be petty but, I am still waiting for that Mormon orphan kid I was promised. Normally I don’t take these ponzi things seriously but this time I was on the third level of success. Now I can see if Gov Perry didn’t have any Mormon kids, but as it turns out he had over 400. So I think I have a right to complain.

  15. ManchuCandidate

    [re=509919]Jumping Jim[/re]:
    You have a point, but these guys are a political Yugoslavia waiting to fall apart. Goldwater and his group united a fractured party around a common theme based on the Cold War dynamic. Unless they rally around a single idea then nothing is going to keep the right from civil war.

  16. teebob2000

    Did he/she/it misspell “homeschoolers” or “homescholars” ? They’re both 1 letter off but “scholars” is a harder word to spell. Both, however, should be hyphenated so they’re a fucking retard for that.

  17. bored with gravity

    [re=509911]donner_froh[/re]: Memorial is an affluent area of Houston. Being a former “Memorial housewife,” I can help you out here. Just think well-to-do, stay at home mom, kids in private school, Republican, Junior League type 30-40 year old woman. The stock market crash helped me pull out just in time to save my soul.

  18. hoosiermama

    Haha. My husband’s a Nugent fan so I sent him the link to this and this is what he sent back:

    Politico reported that Nugent, speaking about hunting to Royal Flush magazine in December, said: “It’s perfect. It’s untouchable on all levels. Unless you’re retarded.”

    A request for comment from Palin’s representatives was not answered Thursday.

  19. JMP

    [re=509920]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Now, it’s very important that we teach our children blatant lies in school. As a good old-fashioned pagan, I’m trying to get the school board to teach the controversy over whether the seasons are caused by the axial tilt or Demeter’s grieving for Persephone while she’s in Hades.

  20. EdFlinstone

    Ted Nugent and Chuck Norris are the Jefferson and Adams of our time. Maybe this end of the world stuff has some merit.

  21. JMP

    [re=509933]ManchuCandidate[/re]: But they have a common theme. Granted, “Ah don’ want no n***** as Pres’nit” in’t going to be a long-term idea, but that’s sustaining them for now.

  22. WhatTheHeck

    All I noticed was the last part of the sign read “…holers.”
    Is this some kind of secret Republican call to action?

  23. Snarkalicious

    [re=509919]Jumping Jim[/re]: On Obama’s Ownership: Nobody dumps a moldy couch on your lawn at 2:30AM like trailer trash.

  24. Prommie

    [re=509944]JMP[/re]: Now the fun thing is, I was taught in school that winter is indeed caused by demeter’s mourning for persephone, who had to spend 6 months in hades each year because she ate 6 pomegranate pips. So ha! I was also taught old union organizing songs and we were all spoon fed the story of this woman who was the President of the Communist Party of the USA, CPUSA, back in the 30s, she was the most prominent of all communists in Amurrica, and in my public school, she was everywhere, held up to us as an inspirational hero. Helen Keller, I believe was the name.

  25. P Drizzle

    Stupid libtard rules like spelling and logic won’t apply in the post-secession republic of Tejas. They will also outlaw Spanish. Jammacain will then welcome the illegals to their new home in Arizona and make a law allowing em to vote since they’re the only people still retarded enough to elect him.

  26. AxmxZ

    [re=509920]SayItWithWookies[/re]: You know, I had gone to two public middle schools in Austin (highschool was private), and my husband was in public highschool in San Antonio. It’s not that the education is bad. The teachers are competent and dedicated, the curriculum is more than adequate, and if you have the drive, you can go as far as you want. My husband got an I.B. at his public high school – I don’t think my private one even offered the option.

    So it’s not the school system itself that’s bad. It’s the fucking kids. The kids are mostly retarded.

  27. The Names Jesus

    Hey Jumpin Jim, other than the dingle berries on your asshole exactly what do these people represent?

  28. WarAndG

    I think he meant:

    “Home South Carolina Holers for Perry”

    …which is FOX NEWS-speak for we’re folksy.

  29. hockeymom

    I notice little Piper in those pictures. She was also in Nashville. Doesn’t she have to go to schol?

  30. Cape Clod

    In “A Canticle for Liebowitz” the survivors in the post-apocalyptic America decide to blame the educated and all written material as the cause of their problems and put them to the flames in an act called “The Great Simplification.” The result of course was a new Dark Age.
    Something tells me that these people are capable of the same thing.

  31. Jumping Jim

    [re=509975]The Names Jesus[/re]: Hey Fucktard, they represent people who don’t like you. Ignore them at your own risk.

  32. S.Luggo

    [re=509919]Jumping Jim[/re]:
    “My kid goes to a very good public school and she isn’t very good at spelling either.”

    1. So, it’s all your public school’s fault.

    2. One reason “Homescholers” give for taking their kid out of the pernicious environs of the public school is the assertion that they can give child a better education. Heh.

    3. Mom is the lower right of the photo. She can clearly see her kid’s sign and the misspelling. Mom probably shrieked at her illiterate offspring to hold the sign towards the cameras, rather than the stage. Major fail.

  33. Woodwards Friend

    Actual comment during a message board argument: “I’m not stupid, I went to home school!”

  34. Ducksworthy

    [re=509998]Jumping Jim[/re]: I think “don’t like you” is a little mild. It more like the represent people who are looking forward to your bowels being filled with hot molten lead after Sarah launches all the nukes at once and they get raptured beak to Jeebus.

  35. Ducksworthy

    [re=509997]Cape Clod[/re]: If only we could figure out a way to use them to fuel our IPads this could be avoided.

  36. Sussemilch

    [re=509919]Jumping Jim[/re]: You can take the Republican out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer-park-seeking tornado of sex, drugs, and corruption out of the Republican.

  37. finallyhappy

    We are bracing for more snow here in suburban Dc(known as Md). We got out briefly to the supermarket(since we had no plows in our neighborhood until last night). thank goodness for Wonkette these past few days- we just got our newspapers for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday this morning- and anyway,the Post is getting too right wing for a person like me who loves our african,muslin, socialist president.

  38. thejesusandmarycheney

    Sarah Palin, October 2008: [i]At a rally on Saturday in California, Sarah Palin offered up a rather jarring argument for supporting the Republican ticket. “There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women,” the Alaska Governor said, claiming she was quoting former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.[/i]

    Rick Perry’s primary challengers are both women.

  39. mayor_quimby

    Dear god, those people are serious, they made up their own word combining scholar and schooler. This is the response from my co-worker, which I am too busy to google and verify:

    According to the Oxford Home Schooling Website, Home Scholers is proper when refering to children who are home schooled.

  40. Tommmcatt

    [re=510084]mayor_quimby[/re]:

    There’s an “Oxford Home Schooling” Website? They’re mean the shoes, right?

  41. mookworthjwilson

    [re=510084]mayor_quimby[/re]: It appears it is true, but then maybe it’s just the guy who came up with the spelling for that term that is the true retard around here…

  42. assistant/atlas

    [re=509995]hockeymom[/re]: Actually, I think school’s out for the summer in Alaska right now.

  43. sanantonerose

    [re=509927]Crank Tango[/re]: Homeskoaler. Had one of those in class the other day. He’s spitting into his empty coke bottle while I’m attempting to teach search strategies. Very distracting.

  44. slappypaddy

    [re=510058]thejesusandmarycheney[/re]: babble spass lays on the stupid with a trowel. the pubtards lap it up, it tastes so comforting. fatty, though.

  45. AxmxZ

    Well, at least this convention has been good for two new “morans”: “homescholer” and “telepalmer”.

  46. comicbookguy

    [re=510095]assistant/atlas[/re]: Homeskoaler is out for the summer, it’s meth cooking season dontchya know? And libruls are intimidated by a woman who knows how to field-dress a boiling flask

    Homeskillets for Palin

  47. Cape Clod

    [re=510100]sanantonerose[/re]: Send him home and let him come up with his own search strategies. Give him the word ‘Boob’ and you will probably never see him again.

  48. tootsieroll

    [re=510084]mayor_quimby[/re]: After a bit of Goggling, this woman uses “Home Scholer” on her personal website to refer to the child being “home schooled”. But wouldn’t you then use “scholar” like you would in other designations such as “Rhodes Scholar” etc?

    The National Home education Research Institute uses “homeschoolers” once in a description of the sites resources, but for the most part, the non-grammatically challenged seem to avoid the issue and use terms like “homeschooled students”.

    I call bullshit: homescholer is retarded.

    Whatever You Are Thinking Right Now, It Counts As Making Fun Of Trig

    Thinking of the Chinese Mens Gymnastics team in the shower soaping each other up counts as making fun of Trig Palin?!?!!?

    The 20-Teens are gonna be rough.

  50. comicbookguy

    [re=510132]tootsieroll[/re]: Judging from my religious nut sister’s home-schooled kids in small town Virginia, the proper spelling of “homescholers” is actually “Obama kills babies”

  51. mayor_quimby

    [re=510132]tootsieroll[/re]: Oh, it’s retarded alright!
    Let me follow the swirl of knowledge down the crapper:
    1 I am smart enough to school my own kids.
    2 I can spell words however I want and just declare it correct because….
    3 Keep the gubmint outta my booklernin’!!
    4 Now I want my retard kids to have access to public school sports. Discrimination!

  52. montresor

    So between this hooey and the winter storms that are originating, didja notice, in Texas, is it too late to give Texas back to the Aztecs? Or at least the Conquistadors?

  53. binarian

    [re=510023]Sussemilch[/re]: Jim had a couple of valid things to say, however much of a Republi-troll he or she may turn out to be. However, I don’t see the the Party of No fracturing anytime soon, as long as they have some shared xenophobic issue to unite them.

  54. steverino247

    [re=509970]AxmxZ[/re]: The kids in Texas aren’t retarded, they’re Baptists. They think their shit don’t stink and Texas is the best place on Earth. They’re ignorant and proud of it. Imagine the utter foolishness of a person with a high school diploma from a rural Texas high school trying to match wits with anybody on this site, yet it happens.

  55. liquiddaddy

    I am reminded that we execute the retarded here in Texas. One would think that more Texans would have moved to Oklahoma where they would be regarded as geniuses.

  56. RobPetrified

    HURRAY for homeholers!
    Because The Family that sleeps (hehe) together votes tea bag ALL THE WAY!
    Huh?
    Oh.
    Heil Perry.

    [re=510134]Tommmcatt[/re]:

    But I voted for Obama.
    Will Sarah Palin shoot me?

    [re=510306]RobPetrified[/re]:

    In a year or so you’ll probably be able to afford the real thing. Not sure it’ll still be as tight, though….

  59. Veritas78

    Hey! That’s Trisomy G. Palin to you, bub. Only his closest relatives can call him Trig, and only they can carry him like a football with legs to book-signins and such as. Until he’s no longer cute, then he gets passed off.

    That poor kid — never had a chance. She named him after his disability. That is all.

  60. foulmouthed mrscreant

    [re=510402]Veritas78[/re]: He’s already been passed off. Piper is the the fave again now, at least for teabaggers and Texas. $arah knows how it goes, as fucking retarded (satire) as she is.

  63. tealwomin

    she like a re-retard…recycling the same smelly sh!t

    all the work done to get Obama in office must be doubled – in order that she is kept far-far away from the WH.

    Home-Scholer can help too also

  64. Extemporanus

    [re=510384]Flanders[/re]: A mistake common to many a homoscholer, though appreciated nonetheless.

  65. zhubajie

    The best thing about born-again home-schooling is that the kids are likely to rebel in a serious way when they grow up. They are the next generation of lefty atheists. Unfortunately, the children of the present generation of lefties are likely to get born-again. The cycle will continue eternally.
