    So gay!

    I hope Idahoans aren’t stupid enough to vote for him into office, but you can’t go wrong underestimating the idiocy of Americans.

  2. Elephants Gerald

    Rub with shortening or butter. Assume a wide stance, and with an apple corer or small knife, core from the back of Harley’s neck out his mouth. Push hot dog through the center. Bake until Harley be Brown.

    “NEVER send a Marine where you can send a bullet and ALWAYS send the BIGGEST bullet you’ve got.”

    The biggest bullet we’ve got, huh? I think your gargantuan head might just qualify.

  4. sanantonerose

    It’s so refreshing to see candidates who say what they mean and mean what they say.

  5. ManchuCandidate

    Spent most of his professional career working for the gubbiment. Check
    Religious. Check
    Professional Engineer. *sigh* Check
    Advocating genocide so he can get cheap (radioactive) gas. Check
    From Idaho. Check
    Camo background on his website. Check

    Tea-tard.

    The guy is obviously both foolish and deranged, with ignorance pouring out of his ears- a shoo-in.

    From the Bio:
    “I was also a Taxicab driver and evangelist in Boise, ID where I led approximately 1,000 lost souls to the Lord Jesus Christ: Drunks and Winos, Hookers and Strippers, Bums, and Homeless; Hippies and Rainbow people, Bikers, and Villains, Truckers and Construction workers, Businessmen and Proletarians, psychos and weirdo’s, homos and lesbians; even some people who looked normal and smelled nice.”

    That about does it.

    “I was also a Taxicab driver and evangelist in Boise, ID where I led approximately 1,000 lost souls to the Lord Jesus Christ: Drunks and Winos, Hookers and Strippers, Bums, and Homeless; Hippies and Rainbow people, Bikers, and Villains, Truckers and Construction workers, Businessmen and Proletarians, psychos and weirdo’s, homos and lesbians; even some people who looked normal and smelled nice.”

    “…who looked normal and smelled nice.”

    oh my god

  9. mocowbell

    I’ve heard that Mitch McConnell shares Ed Wood’s fondness for angora sweaters. So Congress may just be the place for this Tor Johnson wannabe.

  10. norbizness

    He just told me that I can’t be Mr. Purple, there’s a guy out on another job with that name.

  11. Fran Rogers

    Of course he has to throw a bone to the homophobic base: “Keep the Queens Out of the Marines.” Hate is so much cuter when it’s in rhyming form, isn’t it?

  12. Rich Tanguy

    My new Facebook status – I considered myself the “intake manifold to the Kingdom of God”

  13. JMP

    Uh-huh. After browsing through that sight, my brain, it is a-sploding.

    -Engineer. Why am I not surprised?
    -And a birther, a racist, a misogynist and a homophobe. Those hatred tend to go together.
    -So he really wanted to join the marines, but had to go to the Navy instead because of some accredidation thing. Uh-huh.
    -Isn’t there just a bit of irony in a guy who was in the Civil Servie saying decrying big government?
    -Career trajectory: Navy – gov’t Engineer – own engineering firm – truck driver – cab driver. Something tells me he wasn’t a very good engineer.

    Yes, after reading what can charitably be called his thoughts, that Harley Brown, he’s a clown.

  14. fakes

    As a former Idahoan who has moved east, I am filled to the brim with regret I can’t vote him into office. The injustice!!!

  15. joementum

    Is the phrase, “A real man for congress” part of that homosexual agenda I hear so much of?

    A subversive way to get one of their kind into Congress?

    They’re sneaky I say!

  16. F*T*S*

    I would be willing to go along with his energy plan as a pilot program, so long as both he and all of his supporters go in to take the gas immediately after the nukes hit. What a fucking jackass. You’d he would’ve taken the ben wa balls out of his ass before they snapped the publicity photo.

  17. canadasteve

    I always find it interesting how Americans diss people from the south. People from Idaho are waaaay scarier, IMHO.

    Rejected slogans:

    Nuke their rump, take their dump
    Nuke their donkey, take their monkey

  19. Dashboard_Buddha

    “intake manifold to the Kingdom of God” Does this mean he’ll be sucking off dudes in some airport toilet?

    Navy vs Marines? Natch – It ain’t gay if you’re underway.

  20. Marxist-Leninist Papist

    Wait..Is this for fucken serious ? Their is actually a pontential congress man with a website like that, or is this all a elaborate charade by some very snarky fellow lefties ? It is just not that obvious to me any more..

    Immigration Policy – Content Coming Soon.

    Does that mean he can’t find a bumper sticker to copy?

  22. canadasteve

    [re=560412]Way Cool Larry[/re]: *Sigh* As a ‘gay’, I get really tired of people using ‘so gay’ to mean stupid or idiotic. Why not try ‘so jew’ or ‘so colored’ and see how well that goes over.

  23. whiterabid

    “If it is proven Obama is not the legitimate president, then everything he has done while in office and all the people he has appointed and everything they have done will be nullified.

    “This would really dump hot coals into the shorts of those communist liberal progressive politicians.

    “It would be like Luke Skywalker dropping his bomb into the ventilation shaft of the Death Star in “Star Wars.”

    Good golly, miss molly. This guy thinks he is a super hero from a science fiction movie. He has my vote.

    “Congress needs someone crazy like me to combat their insanity.”

    There’s something wrong with this argument, but I can’t quite put my finger on it….

  27. weejee

    [re=560416]ManchuCandidate[/re]: He said he was a PE in Indiana – no PE license there, said he’s now a Spud – no PE in Spudsyvania. Did say he was a taxi driver in Idaho *sigh* lying sos, to fit him behind the wheel there would be no room for passangers.

    Should be tard & fettered.

  28. Lazy Media

    It’s always the REMFs who brag about the military the most. And this guy is a REMF’s REMF. Joined the Seabees as an OCS officer because he couldn’t get a real job, and was too worried about his pussy civilian occupation to be a Marine. Served from ’76 to ’82, mainly in Indiana, with zero combat-zone, let alone combat, experience. Guess what, squid, the Marines don’t need/want you as a groupie.

    Oh, and that resume says “drunkard/druggie” all over it. Leaves the military, gets a cushy federal civil service job, and suddenly, BOOM, he’s “president” of his “consulting and demolition” company, and then he’s a taxi driver and street corner evangelist. I’m guessing Scotch, cocaine and hookers led him to Jesus. And he probably stole a bunch of government building supplies, too.

  29. OzoneTom

    Because Bill Sali didn’t bring enough of teh crazy to beat that blue-dog Walt Minnick.

    I’ll have to keep an eye out for his campaign yard signs so I can see where my nuttier neighbors reside.

  30. SayItWithWookies

    …because there aren’t enough fat white Republicans in Congress who think an aphorism is better than a thought-out policy. I can’t wait for these idiots to start writing laws that can be written on a postcard. In longhand.

  31. sezme

    His website does have a question and comment form. Wonder what kind of responsible questions the Wonketerati would ask him…

  32. Roger Williams hates your ways

    [re=560450]canadasteve[/re]: I think you’re misunderstanding him. I think he is saying this guy is a closeted gay.

  33. GOPCrusher

    Looks like Juggernaut from the X-Men.
    But you have to admit, its refreshing to see a politician come right out and let you know where they stand.
    He’s nuts, but honest.

  34. Dear Diorama

    ” It would be like Luke Skywalker dropping his bomb into the ventilation shaft of the Death Star in ‘Star Wars. “

  35. Rich Tanguy

    So, he want’s to “dump hot coals into the shorts” and “drop bombs in the ventilation shafts”?

    This is screaming for a new definition on Urban Dictionary. The “Harley” – the best of both a Hot Carl and a Boston Pancake.

    Truly, a “real” man, Harley D. Brown is.

    You do? Carry on, then.

  37. anonymousryan

    [re=560453]Cranky Little Camperette[/re]: I know, I was really hoping for some racially insensitive animations.

  38. magic titty

    He is the phrase ‘looks like the best part of him ran down the crack of his mama’s ass and ended up as stain on the mattress’ personified.

  39. trondant

    [re=560429]norbizness[/re]: Let’s not start sucking each others’ dicks just….oh wait.

    Never mind.

  40. 4tehlulz

    [re=560432]JMP[/re]: “Yes, after reading what can charitably be called his thoughts, that Harley Brown, he’s a clown.”

    Oddly enough, John Wayne Gacy was the first thing I thought of.

  41. Sara in the West

    [re=560451]whiterabid[/re]: So he thinks he’s Luke Skywalker? The obvious Jabba the Hutt joke is too easy here. On the upside, he’s got crazy eyes.

  42. weejee

    [re=560467]sezme[/re]: Yes, since he talks so much about being a structural engineer (Sweet Baby Jeebus make that not true) we could ask where he is licensed – perhaps the great state of confusion?

  43. Lazy Media

    Dangit, the contact link is busted. Probably overloaded after the word got out about this nutjob.

  44. whiterabid

    [re=560465]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Would that be better than the stream of conscious proposed constitutional amendements here in Colorado? The latest proposals want to eliminate all taxes and gubmint spending. Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads, nor no stinking badges either.

  45. Dear Diorama

    [re=560467]sezme[/re]: I tried and it said “www.harleydbrownforcongress.org.com was not found on our servers,” so…

  46. JMP

    [re=560446]Marxist-Leninist Papist[/re]: It would be nice if this were a parody, but the .org makes me think he’s for real, and just plain nuts.

    [re=560449]pub_option[/re]: But he does summarize it as “Adios amigos”. No, no racism there, not at all.

    Also, you’ve got to like that his big promise is to outdo Joe Wilson in screaming douchebaggery in Congress. Will scream against debt and against all income taxes (slight contradiction there), and scream moronic birther bullshit at Obama. That’s just what we need, for the next State of the Union to be interrupted with “SHOW US YOUR BIRT CERTIFIKATE!!”

  47. GOPCrusher

    “Why has Obama Not produced a valid birth certificate providing he was born on American soil?

    Because he can’t. If he faked it, he would be guilty of Federal felony Fraud. The first thing that I’d like to do when elected and on behalf of the ½ million American citizens of my district, I promise to scream like a F-4 Jet fighter at full war emergency after burner take off power and demand he produce his birth certificate. If that doesn’t work, I’ll make louder noises and get a lot more aggressive. In fact this is “DO OR DIE” They will have to kill me to get me to shut up.”

    Don’t write checks your ass can’t cash.

  48. Vartan84

    I sort of want him to win, in a nihilistic we’re-all-doomed-anyway so screw it sort of way.

  49. Accordion-o-rama

    Nuke their ass, take their gas

    Is he talking about lighting farts? That might explain his facial expression.

  50. I_KILL_ZOMBIES_ALSO

    [re=560415]sanantonerose[/re]: I second that. All things considered, I think there’s just a possibility that I would vote for him if I were in his district. Not only is he honest, I think it would be an education to see someone batshit crazier than Michele Bachman in Congress.

  51. progressiveinga

    I love the thought that has gone into Harley’s immigration policy: “Content Comming Soon; But for now its Adios Amigos”.
    Brilliant!

  52. JMP

    [re=560453]Cranky Little Camperette[/re]: And you’d think he could illustrate the “cartoon” with something a little less hokey than the Hallmark lady.

    [re=560498]Lazy Media[/re]: Guess we overloaded his server. Good grief.

  53. Monsieur Grumpe

    [re=560416]ManchuCandidate[/re]:

    He’s not nearly as impressive as George Hutchins though. http://www.georgehutchins.com/

    “Now in 2010, these same Fence-Riders, FAKE Conservatives, and FAKE Republican RINOS are back in Full Force.” He’s going to go hunting for Republican Republican In Name Only’s.

    [re=560481]nappyduggs[/re]: “Is it possible to be equal parts Curly and Shemp?”

    Shurly it must be.

  57. TakingAmes

    So… much… to work with…
    “This is because many US politicians are spineless jellyfish.” I hate to nit-pick (actually I don’t), but this guy knows jellyfish are invertebrates, right? Oh wait, today’s theme is redundancy, I forgot.
    “Combat is NO place for women” Well, I don’t wanna go, but more power to ya if you do, I guess.
    “I declare the US Tax code should be scuttled and declared unconstitutional on the legal grounds of being Void for Vagueness.” I’m reasonably sure that’s not a legal ground.

    This guy seems the hate the gubmint a whole lot for someone who’s begging the Idaho 1st (Fightin’ 1st?) to let him suck off the gubmint’s teat for a while.

  58. trondant

    [re=560498]Lazy Media[/re]: [re=560501]Dear Diorama[/re]: I managed to get this submitted

    Mr. Brown, if elected will you promise to do that trick where you put a lightbulb in your mouth and it lights up? Please say yes.

    but I had to save the page to my desktop, knock the .com off the end of the .org in notepad, save it, then open the page and resubmit. Those of you with jerbs are probably too busy for that.

    [re=560521]TakingAmes[/re]: He claims the tax code should be void for vagueness right after complaining that it’s too long and complicated. So is this another self-contradiction, or does he not know what “vague” means?

  70. sezme

    [re=560546]rachelv[/re]: This is a wingnut trope, that “Maxine” said this thing. Maxine was created by artist John Wagner for Hallmark Cards. It’s highly unlikely that he or Hallmark ever wrote those words. It says a lot about the wingnut mindset that they rally behind a fictional quote by a fictional character which is owned by a very real large corporation.

  71. melissa4033

    Harley Brown runs for everything. He’s even run for President a couple of times. Don’t worry. Idahoans send him packing every election. My dad was at a caucus meeting the other night and Harley Brown got up and starting raging about nuking D.C. A bunch of people walked out of the room, refusing to listen to his nonsense. He’s one of those lunatics who rages about the constitution but actually has never read it.

  72. SayItWithWookies

    [re=560500]whiterabid[/re]: Hmm…maybe this past recession was the fault of people who couldn’t balance their checkbooks. Then again, the amendment was probably proposed by one of the literate elites. Who got elected by the idiots who can’t balance their checkbooks.

    Every time Wonkette posts the Web site of a nutty fringe candidate, book burning churches or frightening right-wing extremists, it crashes under the weight of snickering Wonketters long before I get a chance to look at it.

  74. Canuck13652

    Also, the “Terrorists should be afraid of the US not the other way around” is really rich from a Republican or right winger. I mean, for how many years were we told that the Evil Super Terrorists were mere minutes away from blowing up the Mall of America and Taking Away our Freedomz and Fast Food Joints, so we had to give up all our rights and believe Dubya? Or get told that we couldn’t house terrorist suspects in max security US jails because they can all shoot Lasers from their Eyes and they can Leap Tall Buildings and Hide in the Shadows?

    Harley has to be a newby RINO. He doesn’t remember the Laffer Curve during the Reagan Administration. They claimed the debt didn’t matter, keep spending. Remember that!

    Uhhh, Sarah Palin was the valedictorian of Idaho once, wasn’t she?

    Wonder if she mashed potatoes with this nuke expert.

  105. Dave J.

    Something tells me this guy spends most of his free time obsessively watching and re-watching the volleyball scene from “Top Gun.”

  106. PlanetWingnuta

    No wonder larry craig didnt want to give up his congressional seat…i too would be scared to have sex with anyone from Idaho!

  107. fromhils

    [re=560449]pub_option[/re]: This was my favorite part especially spelled comming soon as it is.

    I am pretty sure the second line “But For Now Adios Amigos” pretty well encapsulate his entire immigration policy.

    No prob on the C64, as long as you don’t dis the HP87 we used in the field while inspecting bridges. That suckah had 128K of RAM.

    [re=560581]upstateNY[/re]: And he plans to eliminate the deficit, all at the same time.

    [re=560598]gertrudis[/re]: [re=560624]betterDeadThanRed[/re]: It’s funny, I’ve heard some antiwar liberals suggest rerenaming the Defense Department back to War, but never anyone who wanted more war. This guy just really wants to blow brown people up.

  110. Marimba65

    Does the right honorable Mr. Brown discuss his multiple bankruptcy filings on his website? Or the fact that he left supporters unpaid from his last campaign?

  111. Tundra Grifter

    From his website: “This country got along just fine from 1776 to 1918 without the scourge of income tax.”

    The first income tax was introduced to pay for the Civil War. Guess he was against that, too. The North winning, I mean.

    You betcha!

  112. Mad Farmer Manifest

    Yay! I’m a vile domestic threat to the USA!

    Incidentally, I’m from Idaho, and I’d like to take this opportunity to say: In your face, libtards from elsewhere! No one brings the motherfucking right-wing crazy like Idaho!

  113. FlaminYawn

    The Seabees are bold engineers
    They live in caves and ditches
    They bang their cocks against the rocks
    Those hardy sons of bitches.

    [re=560452]Oldskool[/re]: Sounds like a man qualified to finish what the flight 93 hijackers started.

    [re=560766]virgo47[/re]: sorry for the double post. Be sure to read some 1-minute speeches for some scary-type LOLZ.

    “they will have to kill me to get me to shut up”

    OK, but remember, since you ASKED for it, it aint murder, it’s suicide by proxy!

  118. Lazy Media

    [re=560546]rachelv[/re]: I have four birdfeeders up, and the only downside is that the welfare squirrels eat most of the food. But the birds are lovely. No additional poop, no nests in weird places, just some spilled seed and sunflower shells, and lots of pretty sights and sounds. Maxine sounds like a hateful bitch with a cleanliness fetish.

  119. Bearbloke

    [re=560608]Snarkalicious[/re]: He’s Catholic, but divorced and probably estranged from his children and barred from being alone with any minor… HAIL POPE HARLEY!!!

  120. J.Robert Oppenheiner

    If you look at your store, the only Kellogg’s Corn Flakes that come in a bilingual box are the Corn Flakes with a touch of Honey variety. And that is in English and French.

    [re=560730]Tundra Grifter[/re]: He was educated in the fine public schools of Idaho, probably.

  122. Tim

    [re=560577]weejee[/re]: Perhaps it’s a southern thing. My dad was an engineer, so was my uncle and they’re both (a little) like this guy. My dad was exactly like this guy when he was around 40. My former neighbor was an engineer and a total neocon republitard. I did have one good friend in college who is an engineer, but he is one of the weird ones that reads and likes art.

  123. Old Redneck

    I spent a few minutes reading his website and I nearly pee’ed on myself laughing!!! I’d vote for Harley just to watch him on C-SPAN!!! I can see it now: Bachmann-Brown 2012!!!!

  124. Capitol Hillbilly

    Some Republican is certain to win this seat – this guy is the best we can hope for.

  125. DoktorZoom

    [re=560555]sezme[/re]: Sent to Hallmark’s “Contact Us” page:

    You may already be aware of this, but the John Wagner’s Hallmark-trademarked character “Maxine” has been attached to a stereotype-filled anti-immigration rant that’s been forwarded around email for a few years [example deleted]; while I don’t for a moment think this is anything other than an unauthorized use of the character, I can imagine that Hallmark is probably none too thrilled to see one of its products associated with some fairly ugly ideas. No idea what, if anything, Hallmark can do about the emails, but a DMCA takedown request seems appropriate for the webpages that are making unauthorized use of your character.

    Most recently, the message has been incorporated into the campaign website of Harley D Brown, a fringe candidate for Congress from Idaho, at http://www.harleydbrownforcongress.org/cartoons.html. I hope you are able to do something to remove the taint that this anti-Latino message has given to “Maxine.”

    (yes, the “taint” part was a shout-out to Wonkette)

    It’s a gritty follow-up to Mr. Smith goes to Washington:

  127. Rajul

    [re=560889]Johnny Zhivago[/re]: This guy is hilarious. I just can’t figure out whether he’s tring to see how many wingtards are gonna line up to vote for him or how many libtards are gonna go apeshit over him.

  128. One Flew Over the Wingnut

    You know, during periods of my teenage years I actually lived in Boise…this guy is par for the course. In fact, until I moved out to my current home in the peoples republic of Oregon in loving libtard lala land I’ve spent my entire life in either Idaho or Utah. Yes, Napoleon Dynamite isn’t that peculiar in those areas, and when Napoleon grows up, he becomes this guy. I perused the site just a bit…omg, he’s typical of the wingnuts in Utah. I remember during gulf war I a little ditty about Saddam Hussein being a camel-fucker was popular in Utah. So seeing his slogan of “nuke ‘em and take ther gas!”, I think of a particular type of Utahn/Idahoan (same difference really), the school-bus home-living, gun toting, NRA flag waving with racist bumpersticker and white power tatoos, and dildo shaped like Joseph Smith’s tiny penis owning potato-fucker. I swear to god, when I saw Larry Craig’s super tuber I about died laughing, it’s like every joke I ever made about those idiots come to life! Thank jebus for that very gay closeted anus-juice sucking Republican recipe….aww, good times, I love you Wonkette!

  129. ez

    So Uncle Fester graduates in 1974 an spends the summer of 1976 looking for a job. Where the fuck was he hiding for two years?

  130. lib tard

    I love how his passion is eradicating the deficit while at the same time he wants to do away with the income tax and carry on a nuclear war. On top of everything else, it raises a few pink flags that he’s a never married bible-humping homophobic war-mongering “real man”. 10 to 1 odds this guy loves cock.

  131. Smoke Filled Roommate

    [re=560444]Jumping Jim[/re]: Yeah, his given name was actually Marquis DeAndre Brown so to be on the safe side, he changed it right quick.

  132. Hello Sunshine

    On his birther page he describes the result of Obama being proved to have been born overseas as being “like Luke Skywalker dropping his bomb into the ventilation shaft of the Death Star in Star Wars”.

    Well-rooted in reality, then.

    Also, has anyone ever explained the link between the Government “having very expensive nuclear weapons” and “collecting taxes”?

  133. Barrelhse

    [re=560942]lib tard[/re]: Not to mention his rather uncanny resemblance to J.Edgar Hoover.

  134. libwakman

    The SuperDuper Democrat with the exploding noggin featured to Harley’s left will no doubt throw his support behind him just because he believes he is the best man for America. They will be bus-touring the state on the Douchebag Express.

  135. Libbygirl

    UGH He’s originally from CT (‘Brass City’ AKA ‘Ass City’). My heart weeps. And naturally, he’s from the valley. Anyone who thinks we are a state of wall-to-wall Richie Rich characters (which is flat out wrong to begin with) should visit that area and points East. Let’s just say that South Carolina hasn’t cornered the market on two-toothed Neanderthals.

    Thankfully, we spit this turd out West. Now if we could only do that with clovenhoof Lieberman.

  136. RonPaulKersey

    [re=560933]One Flew Over the Wingnut[/re]: Yeahhhh. I don’t know about that. See, I actually spent my first 19 years in the Treasure Valley. I remember Harley’s various attempts at running for whatever office he’s discovered he could run for, and he’s not par for anything. The guy was too crazy for Helen “Black HE-licopters” Chenoweth.

    [re=560535]Tim[/re]: Well, for most of the last 200 some years, the US has imported it’s engineers. Tesla, eg.

    I have a suspicion that many Congressmen are like Jubilation T. Cornpone, elected to make them leave town.[re=560547]Not_So_Much[/re]:

    Why? I spent a week there once and that was enough for a lifetime!

  139. Norm A. Desmond

    Obviously a candidate who will charm the ladies. Do you suppose it will turn out that he has a past life as a centerfold model, like his cousin Scott?

  140. zhubajie

    Are we sure he’s a real man? Looks like a eunuch to me! Are congressional candidates inspected the way papal candidates are?[re=560460]Lazy Media[/re]:

  141. zhubajie

    [re=560446]Marxist-Leninist Papist[/re]: He wouldn’t be the first person elected to Congress to make him leave town.
