WHY IS HE RACIST AGAINST SERBS?  9:23 am February 10, 2010

Senator Enzi Cannot Say “Blagojevich,” The Most Beautiful Word In The English Language

by Sara K. Smith

Look, it’s Max Baucus’s summer boyfriend, Mike Enzi! Mike Enzi has it so easy because he has a simple four-letter last name. Some people are not so lucky. In this video, note how fluently Mike Enzi says “ACORN” and how he cannot say “Blagojevich” at all. What, was this guy living under a buffalo for the entire first half of last year? Anyway.

Well, he’s not using a telypromter.

Limeylizzie February 10, 2010 at 9:38 am

What an ignorant turd, although I love the way he makes a sort of scrotal gesture when he says ACORN.

ManchuCandidate February 10, 2010 at 9:38 am

I agree with Senator Enzyte. Blagostitch is hard to say.

Enzi has received $793,711 in contributions from the health care and insurance…since 2005.

“No” is the only word he needs to be able to pronounce correctly. And often.

That routine was kind of funny when Leno did it…a year ago. Mike Enzi is retarded.

[re=510505]Limeylizzie[/re]: I believe that what he is saying here is that he wishes to squash the rumor that he likes to be hatefucked by Blagostkvitzsh with ACORN pushing. But I may be reading too much into this.

Monsieur Grumpe February 10, 2010 at 9:50 am

Maybe it would help if he wrote it on his hand.

EdFlinstone February 10, 2010 at 9:50 am

Well its not like Blagojevich has been in the news or anything in the past year. Way to stay in touch Senator.

Katydid February 10, 2010 at 9:50 am

Did he finally settle on “Buy a bitch?” And what’s with the Super Bowl reference? Do not get.

Larry McAwful February 10, 2010 at 9:52 am

The former governor should adopt a Serbian-sounding moniker that’s easier to pronounce. Like Ratko Sunovabich, or something.

Twinkletoes February 10, 2010 at 9:52 am

Maybe Enzi is one of God’s precious little angels, also. Be a real merican, like Trig, Track, and Button. If you have a long, tough name, you are shouting “retard” every time you look in the mirror.

Katydid February 10, 2010 at 9:54 am

[re=510509]gurukalehuru[/re]: As a fucking libtard, I assume you saw Colbert’s beautiful smackdown of Palin 2 days ago when he called her a fucking retard, or fucking retarded, I forget which.

Cape Clod February 10, 2010 at 9:56 am

Given his sterling reputation, Enzi should feel free to pass judgement on anyone he feels like.

gurukalehuru February 10, 2010 at 10:05 am

[re=510517]Katydid[/re]: That was one of the most beautiful things Colbert has ever done, and he has done many beautiful things indeed.

Katydid February 10, 2010 at 10:21 am

[re=510523]gurukalehuru[/re]: Agreed. I replayed it 4 times, and grinned so wide each time my face began to ache. I sometimes find myself trying to explain to people who don’t watch the Report how brilliant he is, how lightening fast his mind is, and how his brain processes the world in a slightly different way than most people. From now on, I’ll just show them that clip.

Red Zeppelin February 10, 2010 at 10:23 am

I find it easier to say if I do it in an early Jerry Lewis persona.

samsuncle February 10, 2010 at 10:25 am

Tancredo’s idea of a literacy test would be fine if it only applied to elected officials.

Scaggsville guy February 10, 2010 at 10:30 am

That is so Triggish…

smitallica February 10, 2010 at 10:40 am

Give the man a break. After all, Blagojevich is a weird, foreigner-sounding name. It’s not a good, wholesome, non-immigrant all-American name. Like Enzi.

Jumping Jim February 10, 2010 at 10:55 am

[re=510512]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Phonetically

alzronnie February 10, 2010 at 11:17 am

Enzi is so homescholared.

god.was.stingy February 10, 2010 at 11:33 am

Hey, at least Mike Enzi is mixing it up a little. While everyone’s still hanging out on 9-11 with their flag pins, Enzi’s representing with the family coat of arms from the old homestead in County Cork. He will offer no quarter until Barack Obama and the rest of the lobsterbacks are driven back to the hellish isle that is jolly old England.

El Pinche February 10, 2010 at 11:39 am

He needs to write that shit on his hand like a good common sense retard.

sezme February 10, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Why can’t Mike Enzi stop insulting Trig?

Ducksworthy February 10, 2010 at 1:45 pm

[re=510515]Larry McAwful[/re]: We are all Serbs now. (Said by someone (Chris Hedges?) about the Amerikkan reaction to 9/11 -meaning now we have a unifying grievance just like the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 and we should feel free to do to our enemies, domestic and foreign exactly what they did to us. Forever and Ever. Amen)

chaste everywhere February 10, 2010 at 1:47 pm

C’mon, Wonkette–the most beautiful word in the stinkin’ English language is “beautiful”–but only when used to describe Trig.

rottenart February 10, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Now why can’t I stop thinking of Porky Pig when I’m watching this?

rottenart February 10, 2010 at 2:48 pm

Also, I’ve been living IN a buffalo for the last two years and I know how to pronounce it:

Blagojovich = Good Hair the First.

HedonismBot February 10, 2010 at 4:14 pm

Fat, hunched over, Donkey Kong-lookin’ dick. Yep, that’s the senator my humble little state sent to D.C. You’re welcome, USA!
