Doh'Donnell & the Grifter.Sarah Palin, the most perfect living human being since Jesus, made absolutely perfect Senate picks — all of them lost. In several cases, her vain and idiotic intrusions cost the GOP perfectly safe races. Just to bring back the sweet memories of Election Day 2010, here are the Senate candidates “helped” by Palin: Sharron Angle in Nevada, John Raese in West Virginia, Carly Fiorina in California, Joe Miller in Alaska and Christine O’Donnell in Delaware. Those last two spectacular failures can be blamed on a specific kind of moronic meddling that should be trademarked by Palin: Her support of Joe Miller was nothing more than the latest rotten fruit of her longstanding grudge against popular Alaskan Republican Lisa Murkowski, and her backing of loony lightweight Christine O’Donnell seemed to be based on nothing beyond Palin seeing a reflection of her vapid self in the empty eyes of a Delaware never-was.

It’s okay to mention these comical facts, as long as you don’t have anything to do with the Republican Party or its special-education outreach unit, the Tea Party. But Louisiana GOP Congressman Spencer Bachus is a Republican, and apparently wants to continue his political career without the modern-day equivalent of finding a racehorse head in your sheets.

So to avoid Palin’s Twitter Terrorism, Rep. Spencer Bachus has put out a half-assed apology for blaming the Alaska grifter for costing the GOP the Senate. Last week, Bachus told a gathering of Republicans what anybody who can read already knew: That Palin’s dingbat endorsements and campaign circus act cost the Republicans utterly safe seats such as the one Mike Castle was expected to easily win in Delaware.

Questioned by the Associated Press Tuesday following his anti-Palin comments, a spokesperson for Bachus, Tim Johnson, downplayed the remark, saying it had been taken out of context …. Johnson added that Rep. Bachus was “extremely complimentary” of both Palin and the Tea Party, according to the AP.

Out of context? What, was he actually talking about an alternate dimension? [CBS News]

    Sarah Palin did cost the Republicans the Senate. And no one should ever apologize to Palin for saying that. Thank her, maybe, but apologize, never.

      Pitch that to them properly and they'll probably use it on their letterhead.

  • "I hope my Republican colleagues have gotten the message this time. Voters want the local county school board to spend their money, not the federal government," Bachus added.

    Yes. Voters don't want the local county school board to spend the federal government.

    • fundamentallybroken

      And if it's the teabaggers we're talking about, they don't even want the local school board spending their money. The more educated the populace, the less likely they'll be susceptible to populist stupidity.

      • And, apparently, populist stupidity = poor grammar.

        We haven't really heard about her bj skills, which she pretty much has to have if she likes to get naked and not put out. I am thinking it involves a lot of teeth, and not the right amount, but too much, and an annoying amount of flicking the head with her tongue.
        But what the hell, I'll give her a shot.

But until then, please please please keep Sarah in your hearts…err pants (these ARE Republicans) and worship the diety. She is a real American and perhaps, if the GOP keeps it up, their entire congressional leadership will be able to see Russia from their house.

    "In the meantime, DeFazio is broadcasting a tape loop across all remaining D.C.-area radio bands in which he declares: "This is Peter DeFazio of Oregon's 4th Congressional District. If there are any elected officials out there who can hear this, know that you are not alone. Come to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. as soon as you can. It's time to start again."

    "Everything is just so quiet now," DeFazio said later as he fished press secretary Robert Gibbs' corpse from the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall. "Quieter than it's ever been before. Something about it is almost…peaceful."

    Sources confirmed that while searching for a fertile female politician with whom to repopulate Congress, DeFazio discovered the body of a still-breathing Christine O'Donnell and crushed her neck with the heel of his shoe "

      YAY! I live in his district!

      • guangho

        How is it? I've been talking to UO folk.

        • petehammer

          Well, my mind is blown that nutjob Art Robinson (public education should be abolished/is child abuse, lets put radiation in our walls because it is good for us) got high 30s low 40s of the vote in a very liberal area of the country. It makes me a bit concerned. Other than that, Eugene is still overrun with terrible street youth, businesses are closing, and the county is gonna lay off a crapton of people. But the nature/weather is very nice!

          DeFazio is a pretty cool dude, and according to the Onion article, will be the last one alive in DC after the massive day of violence.

    "..was he actually talking about an alternate dimension?"
    If the Tealizard people are done using their alternate dimension, can I move in? They've wrecked our reality-based world, and a universe made entirely of fantasy is sounding pretty appealing.

    • SorosBot

      They're still living in the alternate dimension; it's the one where the universe is only 6,000 years old, the Bible is a history book, the Founding Fathers were all Christian, the Civil War was fought over abstract ideology of states' rights and not slavery, FDR created the Depression instead of ending it, the fascists and Nazis were liberals, the Southern Democrats did not defect to the GOP over civil rights, and there is no such thing as man-made global warming.

      • DustBowlBlues

        You forgot one: the Rs actually were the true champions of civil rights because Byrd, a Democrat, filibustered the Civil Rights Act, and it was opposed by southern Democrats. They never add that the ones, other than Byrd, who wanted to stay in the senate became Republithugs, where they got a nice, big, huggy-bear, winger welcome.

    "I was quoted out of context" is the classic excuse used by someone caught with his – or her – pants around the ankles and with nothing, nothing, else to offer in the way of a reasonable – believable – explanation.

    It's right up there with the Tea Bagger excuse when someone at one of their little events is photographed with an obnoxious sign. "Must be a plant."

    • OneYieldRegular

      "I was quoted out of context" also usually means that the "context" was to be provided later, after audience feedback.

    It is undeniable that Palin & Co. cost the Repugs the Senate. Just like Dubya cost them the White House. I'm fond of telling my Rightard Obama-Haters, "Don't blame me, I only voted for Barry once, Dubya herded millions of Independent votes Obama's way just by being such a fuck-up he poisoned the well for Repugs. If you voted for Bush, then by extension, you are responsible for putting the first black man in the Oval Office.

  • bitchincamaro2

    Somewhere (everywhere) I read that horny, older white males ("all of 'em, Charlie!") comprise Palin's loyal base. If that's true, and it's also generally true that more females vote than do males, doesn't it stand to reason that in red states, at least, the inherent mental superiority of the fairer sex prevailed at the polls and horny white males proved themselves to be nothing more than that?

    Or is it this double Dewers talking?

    • BarackMyWorld

      Following this logic, Republicans better be glad Jennifer Granholm was born in Canada.

      • bitchincamaro2

        Considering the last pol from MI to inhabit the WH was a Ford, I don't think they have too much to worry about on that score. The utter idiocy of term limits is underscored by her absence from the current scene, however. The fact that she had great legs has nothing to do with it. Absolutely nothing.

    • Beowoof

      Well yeah, they all think they're going to get a chance with Sarah, also too. But they better remember she is only in it for the big money dick these days.

  • It's the Dewers, dude. But I don't blame you, I've been drinking heavily since November 02.

      • natoslug

        I wish I could join you in a Dewar's. Unfortunately, after spending the 3rd through the 7th pretty much constantly drunk, I've come down with something and the booze doesn't make me feel that great. After a few days sober, I'm sure I'll be ready to return to professional drinking though.

        • Lascauxcaveman

          "Professional Drinking?" Look buddy, you don't have to lord it over us just because you have a job.

          • natoslug

            Ha! I guess officially my title is "Software Engineer" but "Professional Drunk" seems much more accurate, especially as I learn to accept how lazy so many of my fellow leftists are when it comes to midterm voting. Fortunately, I have no pilot's license, and feel that the IRS is merely inefficient and not collecting enough taxes rather than evil and trying to oppress us through taxation.

    • DustBowlBlues

      Good point. Rove is the king, isn't he? The rainmaker/architect. The real question: On which side will Rush put his considerable (and completely gross, btw) weight?

      Nice to have something to smile at. The weiner/terrier mix we adopted after she was dumped disappeared. Or, "was" disappeared, by a coyote, we're guessing. No more tiny dogs for us. Well, unless someone dumps them on us in the dark of night.

        Does Sarah know about her next grandbun in the oven yet? How will this one be revealed? Bristol, you can't use Oprah since you didn't use her Out to not foolishly and righteously commit to Abstaining from sex until you were married. . .

  • SecretMuslin

  • MLite

    Spencer isn't from Louisiana, but Alabama. He was my Congressman growing up and my folks still live in his district. He may be an idiot, but he's our idiot. Actually strange that he was even attempting to call Palin out, his last big quotes were about dirty Socialists in Congress and the gay marriage being a greater danger than losing Vietnam/Iraq/World War III. Maybe she's just horning in on his crazy. Alas, Democrats never even try running against him, and the district is too WASPy to go for a Teabagger in the primary.
