why do we have to use the 'assassination' tag so often?

Town Hall Crowd Laughs When Person Asks Who’s Going To Shoot Obama

He can fly! He can fly! He can fly!Republican Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia held a town hall meeting on Tuesday. Generally these days when a member of Congress meets with her constituents, she is shot in the head, but because President Obama made America more civil, the crowd simply asked, “Who’s going to shoot Obama?” Assassinating the president is a hilarious non-sequitur, so the crowd laughed. Broun, you will remember, was the guy who refused to attend the State of the Union this year and instead sat in his office and tweeted about how socialist Obama is, so he unfortunately missed the part of the speech when Obama revealed who’s going to murder him, and Broun was unable to pass this information along to his constituent. Broun didn’t condemn the question, of course. He simply agreed that people hate the president.

The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Hey, no fair! Why wasn’t Broun willing to name names? Probably because he doesn’t want his people to strike first. This is the guy who called the Civil War the “Great War of Yankee Aggression” on the floor of the House. So as soon as the Yankees start aggressing, he’ll get somebody to shoot the president, okay?

    The first response should have been, "and what is your name sir?"
    Then the Secret Service take over.

          1. weejee

            Happy B'day Soros! Regards the cupcake:
            1. Cut in half (this lets the calories leak-out – a proven scientific fact)
            2. Eat both halves of the now lo-cal cupcake
            3. Run/walk two miles just to be safe.
            4. Have a great day

        1. Texan_Bulldog

          You actually know real people on Wonkette? I thought we were all just lonely, liberal heathens looking for kinship/solidarity from other distant like minds on the cold, anonymous series of tubes.

        2. Limeylizzie

          If I'd known we could get cakes and love from fellow Wonketteers I would have been on here whining about the fact that I didn't book the recurring role on "Boardwalk Empire" that I auditioned for this week.

          1. HistoriCat

            Whine all you want Liz – we've got your love right here. Although the cake might be a little more tricky. Have to talk to DustBowlBlues about that – she's the baking goddess.

          2. Barbara_i

            You are an actress? That is so interesting. I'm sorry about the role. Would a flan help? I'll give you half my bagel that I made from scratch this morning.

          3. Limeylizzie

            Bagel? From scratch? You are a wonder! Yes, I am an actress, although nothing gets slammed so much in a bad economy as the arts and as I am mainly a stage actress it's been a rough couple of years. MrLimeyLizzie is a very well-known ,and respected, Production Designer in Hollywood and has designed some very famous pictures and even he's having a bit of a rough time of it right now.

          4. Barbara_i

            Yes, I bake everything from scratch. Jeff got me a brick oven for our anniversary. UserofOwls would like the cupcakes I made for Jeff's admin, a native American from the Laguna Tribe. http://i55.tinypic.com/6sv0hv.jpg

            That must be so exciting to be an actress. I hope that things pick up for you soon.

          5. elviouslyqueer

            Oooh. My birthday is coming up in May, but I'm one of the few skinny people in the state of Mississippi (and plan to stay that way), so a mini-cupcake would suit me just fine. Oh, and a bazooka for when our beloved Gov. Haley B. comes to town. Not that I'm advocating violence or anything like that.

          6. Limeylizzie

            Did you see the owl cakes? Check the link on her post.
            I am sorry that you are in Missssippi and queer, how does that work?

          7. elviouslyqueer

            Step 1) Avoid rednecks as much as possible.

            Step 2) Try to stay in Memphis (just over the border) as much as possible.

            Step 3) Repeat Steps 1 and 2.

          8. LesBontemps

            Not that I'm advocating violence or anything like that.

            Of course, you meant the common metaphoric bazooka — you know, with votes!

            Or was that a surveyor's bazooka?

          9. Chet Kincaid

            Oh Lizzie, too bad about that. I'm sure you would have slapped that meandering series into action! (Is it true they're replacing Steve Buscemi with John Waters next season?)

          10. Limeylizzie

            Hi Baby
            I haven't heard that Buscemi/Waters rumour, but would you even notice if they did? Yes, I was rather peeved, but I am sure the universe is saving me for something special and when I book my next big gig I promise to out myself on the Wonkette so you can watch it, if it's a tv/film gig, if it's another Broadway show you wll have to pony up the insane amount of money to see it.

          11. Chet Kincaid

            By the way, I waited for you over on Pretend Times Square wearing my sailor's outfit to celebrate my 100 pee with an epic smooch, but I never did see a buxom nurse swing by…

          12. Limeylizzie

            I saw you there, but I was hurrying to catch the plane as it was a moonlit night and I could parachute into occupied France, but I did try a ittle frottage as I scurried by, did you not notice? Frottage not Fromage this time

          13. DustBowlBlues

            How many of us are famous and talented? Hmm. I don't seem to have my hand up. Best get off the wonket and back to the murder mystery.

    1. JustPixelz

      As John The Boehner has taught us: Representatives job is to merely listen to constituents. And listening does not include informing them of their felonious behavior*. But now that the people of Georgia have spoken, will Broun blindly act on what he was told? Or will he agree that the people are sometimes idiots?
      * I have to allow that Broun was probably just a-scared of the questioner.

    1. GeorgiaBurning

      Chances are one of his soldiers made this guy's great-great-grandmother two dollars richer and pregnant.

  2. Schmannnity

    Republican Conservakooks always ready to play the assassination card. Wasn't Garfield's assassin a Teaparty Anarchist?

  3. twaingirl

    Dear Southerners: You should probably pay your teachers so y'all could learn what exactly the North does to you when you pull shit like this. Sincerely, Twaingirl.

      1. SorosBot

        And to think that there used to be accusations that the unions were in league with the mafia; now the mafia is firing the unions.

      1. V572625694

        Only in the Christian Academies, where they study the War of Northern Aggression and learn why the negro is biologically incapable of rational thought, unless said negro is a conspiring Kenyan anti-colonialist who faked his own birth.

    1. weshightower

      Dear Twain,

      Twain was a Southerner and one of the most celebrated writers/commentators/comedians of all time.

      The majority of Presidents, including George Washington, were Southerners.

      Do not judge a whole region due to a few stupid people.

      Most modern High School students could not tell you which of the states were Northern, Southern, territories,or border states.

      If I see hate and selfish behavior, I do not see it being one region or state with a patent on it.

      -Wes, from Georgia

    1. DustBowlBlues

      I love the way they try to draw a comparison between talking seriously in public meetings about shooting the president and actually shooting a congressperson and a judge with comedians and normal folk making fun of Junior Bush for "is our children learning", "old saying inTexas, maybe you have it in Tennessee, Fool me once, shame on you fool me . . . fool me–just don't fool me again," "internets" and, yeah, fronting for the neocon lies about Iraq.

  4. Texan_Bulldog

    "Hopefully, we’ll elect somebody that’s going to be a conservative, limited-government president…"

    Translation: someone who is white.

    These are the kind of dumb fucks who would have taken their kids & picnic baskets to a hanging after church was over.

    1. LetUsBray

      "Translation: someone who is white."

      Hey, that is COMPLETELY unfair.

      He's gotta hate women and unions, too.

      1. Beowoof

        They only like to limit government when it won't let them: pollute, persecute those who are different from them, oppress workers, limit their profits through taxation, etc. They like it just fine when they can promote their obtuse christian agenda, hold down unions, screw over teachers, teach out right lies etc.

    2. DustBowlBlues

      As much as they hated Clinton and pursued an insanely expensive vendetta against him, the guns and killing talk was never like this.

  5. memzilla

    The fact that he didn't denounce the comment, much less call the Secret Service, IMHO makes him a co-conspirator in treason.

    In an alternate universe somewhere/somewhen, Abraham Lincoln said "Go ahead and secede, but the Fugitive Slave Act will be null and void; so any black person who gets across the Ohio River is a free person forevermore."

  6. Terry

    If you read the comments on that article, people are saying that its just an old guy who said that, he obviously could do anything. Reminds me of the old guy who decided to kill people at the Holocaust Museum. Seemed like a harmless old kook, until he wasn't.

  7. horsedreamer_1

    @HoekstraLoogy: These assassination fantasies in Georgia. Now Obama knows how George W felt when Cindy Sheehan was camping miles from the ranch.

    1. Negropolis


      But, bringing back up Cindy just gave me a sad. :( It reminds me that we are still in Afghanistan…getting murdered.

    2. Texan_Bulldog

      Yeah, Cindy Sheehan one of those crazy Code Pink, tree hugging commies who are notorious for wanting to shoot people. Although didn't her son get killed in Iraq? On 2nd thought if my son got killed in a war ginned up because of 'daddy' issues, yeah, W probably should have worried.

      1. kissawookiee

        Code Pink = Muslin Brotherhood, remember? Oldster is just tryin' to head off the Coming Caliphate, is all.

        1. DustBowlBlues

          That's so 10 days ago. Now it's Wisconsin Workers = Muslin Brotherhood. Try to keep up, will you?

    3. ttommyunger

      No one pays attention to what Hoekstra says, fortunately; Hell, he's required to wear a helmet when he gets up in the morning.

  8. freakishlywrong

    Que the false equivocation that "the left", in front a sitting congresscritter at that, said mean stuff about Bush.

    1. DustBowlBlues

      I love it every time Rachel interrupts someone to tell them that their false equivalency examples are bull shit. Except, she says it smarter and without the profanities, but still . .

  9. El Pinche

    The next "independent" or conservative that says The problem is on both sides of the aisle! needs to get dick slapped.

    1. Limeylizzie

      If I had a dick, and if I did I just know it would be huge, I would totally dick-slap that bastard Broun

      1. El Pinche

        I'll let you borrow mine. It ain't huge, but its a work horse.

        *lol*…is it too early for dick jokes ?? I don't think so.

    2. GOPCrusher

      Those people or the ones that say "Republiklans and Democrats are the same thing" as their justification for being a Tea Bagger, aren't really paying attention.

  10. NeedsWants

    I wonder what came up during his evening show. I hear he can get a little 'blue'. NO kids, two drink minimum, BYORF (Bring Your Own Rebel Flag).

      1. NeedsWants

        He had the Lasik (dad paid for it), but yeah: fashion/looking smart. Sometimes He can be so superficial. p.s. LUV John Hall.

      1. the_onceler

        That was the compromise right? Rutherford Hayes, a Republican, would end reconstruction if he took office because the Democrats wanted it to end. Too bad the term "Radical Republican" has such a different meaning now than it did at that time.

        1. SorosBot

          Yep; he ended the whole thing after the successes under Grant. Not only that, but think about your image of Grant as President, not as general. It's probably totally wrong; he was not corrupt or a drunk, but because of his reconstruction program Confederate apologists started a slander campaign against his Presidency beginning in the early 1900s that succeed and frames how his terms are viewed to this day, even inspiring lies in textbooks.

          1. the_onceler

            That's exactly right. When I've read about Grant, I'm thinking, man, this guy was a better President than General. As a General, he had great deputies like Sherman (my hero!) and Sheridan. But, as President, he really stood up for blacks in the south in a way unimaginable before.

          2. SorosBot

            The slander has been so thorough that he's almost always referred to as General Grant instead of President Grant. The truth is, if Hayes hadn't betrayed Grant's programs and given up on reconstruction, civil rights would have been a hundred years ahead of where they are; for starters, the civil rights act of 1875 guaranteed pretty much everything the civil rights act of 1964 did, but the racist Supreme Court of the time tossed it out.

          3. Ducksworthy

            Hmmm. I'm imagining this level of discourse taking place on say RedState. Maybe if reconstruction had continued…..

          4. Sparky_McGruff

            I'm thinking of RedState, and derp! derp! duh derp!

            Whoops, that sometimes happens when I try to think about what people talk about there.

    1. Negropolis

      I'd like to Reconstruct them, alright…

      Honestly, next time I have to argue talking up the old South with their revisionist history, I'm just going to shout "Reconstruction" till the cows come home.

    1. user-of-owls

      You know what's surprising and even a bit heartening? The fact that my state is nothing more than a piker in this competition.

      I live in Arkansas.

      1. HistoriCat

        Oh, now you've done it. Somewhere in Arkansas a state legislator is thinking "can't let those fools in Georgia be more conservative than us."

        1. kissawookiee

          Meanwhile, Montana is working overtime to out-Teatard everyone. This concerns me, as Arizona has yet to hear about idiotic legislation that's too extreme to bogart.

  11. Chillwaver

    Oh, man. I'm gonna laugh so hard when Barry gets reelected next year and these "patriotic" a-holes have the Secret Service on their asses. We should all send a quick reminder to all these "1st Amendment exercisers" out there:

    "Threatening the President of the United States is a class D felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making "any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States."

    1. ttommyunger

      Considering Barry's record of late, I'm not sure he wouldn't give them three free-shots, just to be fair. Wouldn't want to offend the Right, now would we?

  12. harry_palmer

    We should have let them secede. Of course if we had all the Crackers would now be trying to swim the Ohio away from the paradise these maroons would have set up.

  13. MildMidwesterner

    I don't trust elected officials who say "Obamacare" and don't realize that the bill is titled "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act." It makes me think that they didn't even bother to read the first page.

    1. problemwithcaring

      Well that's all they ever heard it called on Fox/Politico and that's pretty much their only familiarity with the bill at all.

    2. Negropolis

      "Obamacare" is one of those shibboleths where I tune out when I hear someone say it. That and "Democrat Party".

      1. HistoriCat

        It really does make for useful shorthand. You're pretty certain to know what you're dealing with you hear that.

        Hey Negropolis – you're not usually an early comment! On a different schedule these days?

        1. Dashboard_Jesus

          I was just thinkin' the same thing…as a late night commentater myself it's nice to see my brotha gettin' the big p-ness he so righteously deserves!

      2. DustBowlBlues

        The Republic newspaper, The Oklahoman, has been using Democrat party for decades. At least for the sixty years of my life. And now the idiot who is president of Democratic Women in OK calls her org. Democrat Women.

        Even Democrats are dumb as stumps in Oklahoma. Well, some of them. Not I and a few of my friends.

    3. SayItWithWookies

      I like Obamacare — especially since in a few years it'll be a constant reminder of how the healthcare economy should serve everybody and the thoughtless red-faced reactionary teabagging shills who fought that idea every single step of the way.

    4. ttommyunger

      Repugs pay Millions to Dickwads like Grover Norquist and his retard twin, Frank Luntz to come up with catchy titles and slogans like this to feed to the slobbering, cheeto-stained, beer-sotted masses through Fox Noise and the Chattering Classes on AM Radio.

  14. Oblios_Cap

    Whoever said "Ignorance is Bliss" was probably a Georgian or Alabaman. They're well acquainted with ignorance.

    1. weshightower

      Georgia was one of the original colonies. We shed our blood for liberty.

      Not all Southerners owned slaves or supported the Confederacy.

      My main point, is that most of the violence and hate in this country are not a product of Georgia. Most of the righteously stupid and inane rambling comes from North of the Mason Dixon.

      When you talk about a region like it is not worthy of being part of the United States, then I would challenge you to prove a point.

      Make a case. If not, then shut up.

      1. jim89048

        It appears that what went directly into their brains was the Strontium-90 the gummint used as an herbicide under the powerlines.

    How do you triangulate motherfuckers who wanna shoot you and your 9 year old daughter? How do you compromise???

      How do you compromise?

      "Pardon me, sir, but might I suggest a drone strike to resolve the outstanding issue? it sends a message with neither the need for nor expectation of a reply…"

  17. EatsBabyDingos

    My Mom moved to the "SOBX" (southern North Carolina) where they call it the "War of NORTHERN Agression." She runs the Literacy Council and gets to teach rednecks how to read. She was working with a 25 year old, and called it the "Civil War," and Junior's Daddy Hisself came to Mom's house visibly upset that the Great Injustice was not referentially called the "War of Northern Aggression," and she better watch out for herself, as they "don't cotton to Yankees from Virginia."

    If "Dumb and Dumber" had a baby (space Jeebus miracle), it couldn't dumberer. Or could it?

  18. One_Man_Band

    It's cool, I'm sure Obama can form some sort of bi-partisan coalition with these people to accomplish his agenda.

    The best way to do this would obviously be to let the snipers and their lobbyists write a bill, which he would then sign.

  19. SorosBot

    Maybe it's time to revive the old post-Civil War law that banned anyone who supported the traitors from positions in government.

      1. SorosBot

        It's really very simple; flying a Confederate flag means that you support treason against the United States, therefore you are not qualified to create the laws the country you hate.

  20. freakishlywrong

    Oh, and thank you conservative media, for two years of un-hinged, inchoate hate. You've managed to completely dehumanize a good man; who's also a husband and father. You've made it perfectly ok to suggest that he be hunted like a dog.

  21. aqua_buddha

    Dog whistle or jes whistlin' dixie ?
    What makes any old Strategy into a Southern Strategy ?

    They'll tell you proudly down there "well, now boy- the northerner he'll always out-smart a southerner, but by god the southerner will always out-dumb the northerner"

    Haha I don't think you can argue around that one, progressive smartypantsers.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      "I'm surprised they called for a shooting instead of a lynching. "

      Well now, that's because after all, they're not racists!

    2. trondant

      I live here, so that's an easy one: they're too fat and lazy to actually lynch anyone. Besides, these idiots can't tie their shoes let alone a noose. If they try to shoot someone instead, there's a fifty-fifty chance they have the barrel pointed at themselves.

      What would be really nice, though, is a one way high-speed rail line that runs through the state, down to Atlanta and then to Savannah. I'd call it the Sherman Express.

  22. bitchincamaro2

    He's not retarded; he suffers from Broun Syndrome, a disease rampant in the southern United States, but spreading rapidly throughout the lower 48. Alaska us currently quarantined; Hawaii doesn't count, as it's a foreign country.

  23. user-of-owls

    So, in the previous thread I suggested using the manure generated by people of this ilk to power our warplanes. Alas, I must correct something. In the post. Whereas I suggested using a 1:1 ratio of scuzz to plane, I was clearly underestimating the enormous reserves of shit that are to be found in Broun. He could, quite obviously, power a significant portion of the fleet all by himself.

    User-of-Owls regrets the error.

  24. Limeylizzie

    In a more serious vein, I worry for the safety of Barry every single day, it must be hell on earth for Michelle. I remember during the 2008 election campaign, right after he won the nomination, I was talking to my upstairs neighbour, Mary, who is a 75 year old black woman and I was all giddy with excitement and she said "I don't want him to win,because I am scared someone is going to shoot him".

    1. horsedreamer_1

      & we scoffed when Alma Powell suggested Colin wouldn't survive a first term (when he was touted as a candidate in 1996).

    2. PsycWench

      I'd like to say that the right-wingers out there know that if he were to be shot, he'd immediately become a martyr for the cause, people would become activists in his memory and it would make the right wing look very bad. I doubt they have the collective brains to figure that out, though.

      1. chickensmack

        Just thinking about it is horrible. I was making a response to you about what things would be like in the wake of such an inhuman and gutless event, but nothing sounded right.

        Meanwhile, it's a god damn punchline to his district.

    3. ttommyunger

      You do well to be concerned. Modern weaponry can extend the reach of a well-trained marksman out to a mile. Most cityfolk don't realize how far that is in the real world. A target would be dead and on the ground before the sound reached it. Weaponry of this type is readily available now in Gun Stores and Shows Nationwide.

        1. ttommyunger

          I'm too uninformed to get the reference. You are dealing with a geezer, here, Puck. I don't know whether to laugh or be offended. Sorry.

          1. user-of-owls

            Hey amigo,
            Don't you remember the pestilent little weevil that used to plague us not too long ago? The one with a truly pathetic shooty-blowy-uppy fetish? The one who had his humor gland removed during his circumcision? That's the reference and I'm sure Puck meant no disrespect.

          2. ttommyunger

            Don't even try to educate me. I am too old and slow to catch on to all this. I'm doing well to be able to get online. I was just trying to explain why I could not respond intelligently to Puck's comment. I would never take offense to an online exchange anyway. I'm old, not fucking stupid. Thanks for the effort, anyway:)

          3. PuckStopsHere

            The correct answer to the question regarding whether you should laugh or be offended is, in all likelihood, both. That's how I felt about Neilist right up until the time came when he had to die. (And user-of-owls is correct as usual. I meant no disrespect.)

  25. alzronnie

    A guy dressed up like John Wilkes Booth will be added to the next confederate celebration/re-enactment/tribute/whatthefuck. Then we'll get the explanation about how it wasn't about shooting Lincoln, really, it was about states' rights. In particular, the right to assassinate the president, which will now be referred to as "replacement."

    1. horsedreamer_1

      The President works for the People, no? Means we're his boss. & John Wilkes was just exercising our right, as boss, to fire a poor-performing employee.

      1. ChessieNefercat

        "…exercising our right, as boss, to fire a poor-performing employee."

        exercising our right, as boss, to fire at a poor-performing employee.

    I know Alabama's releasing a license plate honoring the KKK, but that doesn't mean the rest of the states see lynching or otherwise killing people for being black as acceptable. Just a reminder to all those people in Georgia. (Really, what are they doing down there – importing their crazy-water from Arizona or something?)

        1. Negropolis

          Believe it or not, an actual industrialized economy. Alabama, historically, had Birmingham and Mobile, which may as well be Northern cities in terms of the amount of heavy industry and manufacturing they had. Hell, NASA even has a research center in Alabama.

      Not yet! But we'll bravely keep trying this same strategy, because otherwise at some point in the future a Republican might get elected.

      Right Barry needz to love harder…tax cuts are not enough…bring on the subsidies – $1 for each $1 earned (or stolen or scamed is cool too) to all making over $1Mil a year.

      Just print more money, what could be wrong with that?

    1. mrblifil

      Still undetermined. What is known at this point is that a reality show is in the works, and all that remains to be seen is who will make the cut once people start sending in their audition videos. Or shooting their local officials in the head.

      Working title is "Shooting for the Stars." Either that or "A Day in the Life of Neilist."

      1. DustBowlBlues

        I guess they could have started with the young African-American man who is running for public office in my county, except they'd better come loaded for bear because he finished his sentence for a drive by shooting just 6 years ago. Oh, that's right–he isn't eligible. Guess he didn't think those prison tats would inspire anyone around here to check the google on him.

        Since the sheriff and deputy sheriff are under indictment and facing trials on felony charges, maybe he thought he'd fit in. After all, the DA (a Republican dick) just dropped the charges against one of the commissioners.

        You gotta' love the Bible Belt. Most corrupt, violent area in the USA and makes the loudest claim to being the only place the Jesus-inspired constitution is truly loved.

    Fuck these redneck jack-offs. I'm perfectly fine with being the United Northern States of America.

    Complete the danged fence!…at the Mason-Dixon line.

    Being a Georgia town hall crowd, it was obviously packed by musical theatre enthusiasts, who mistakenly thought they were being treated to an impromptu selection from Stephen Sondheim's underappreciated work, "Assassins" and were laughing with delight!

    1. DustBowlBlues

      Exactly. And, yes, it is under appreciated. While worrying about Barry must be hard on Michelle, I wonder what it is like to be his Secret Service detail. With all these so-called normal types running around, hoping someone shoots NotsoHopey, the fear they could be the one to lose the president must weigh heavily on them.

  30. crybabyboehner

    Ha Ha, the old coot was just lettin' off steam.

    Folks are just "frustrated" because we have a nigra, er, socialist President!

      1. aqua_buddha

        Even freaking McCain had the balls to say, no, crazy lady, he's not an arab.
        No confrontation here, though.
        This little piggie knew he ought to just slide through and suck up the juice. That tangy racism assasination juice, that is mother's milk to a southern boy.

  31. SayItWithWookies

    I'm sure Broun and his supporters consider this just idle speculation — it's not an actual act of rape and torture, like bumping into a girl with a cell phone.

    1. DaRooster

      That is one problem with beating folks into submission… but not far enough. They believe they are part of the way it should be.

      1. OzoneTom

        If it were possible to distill today's output of the Wonketterartii it might be possible to fire-up a contemporary version of the National Lampoon.

        I can dream.

  32. donner_froh

    Since there is a Carthage, Georgia, a Carthaginian Peace should have been imposed on on the fuckers in 1865. Maybe by now they would have gotten well enough organized to beg forgiveness from their Yankee overlords.

  33. stew1

    Since the Secret Service apparently plans to do nothing to this scumbag who made the threat, I hope his name is at least posted on the Internet.

  34. ttommyunger

    Ordinarily, one judges by appearances at their peril. In the case of Georgia Douchebag Politcians, amazingly, they all look like perfect douchebags! Not identical, yet perfectly Douchebagged to the Nines; every fucking one of them in their own Douchebag Way.

    1. crybabyboehner

      i have actually had the misfortune to witness their legislature in action a few times. the collection of pastel blazers would make ed mcmahon blush.

  35. Snarke_Diem

    Yikes. No more visits to the Bible Belt for me – my "Christian & Republican" membership card was revoked years ago.

  36. DaRooster

    When W was preznit(wit) I ALWAYS hoped that he would get it but alas… it was not to be… but I continued to HOPE.

    How can these numb-fucks call themselves PATRIOTIC? Not only do they HOPE Obama fails but they want him DEAD? 4 fux-aches… fucking hateful, stupid, moronic, lame-ass excuse for "people"…

    1. GOPCrusher

      You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons.

  37. Extemporanus

    Whoa, whoa, whoa…slow down there, Georgia.

    Before you shoot Obama, you need to convict him of miscarriage first.

  38. BarackMyWorld

    To be fair, this comment and laughter wasn't the congressman's fault, just the stupid backwards morons that elected him.

  39. Snarke_Diem

    Imagine the reaction if someone had said the same thing about Lou Sarah:

    World War 3 right here on Amerikkkun soil.

  40. owhatever

    Congressperson Paul Brown of Georgia needs to get laid. Wait. That was what I said about the other Georgia representative yesterday who wants to executive women who have a miscarriage. I think I've stumbled onto something here.

  41. Tundra Grifter

    Mr. Broun simply had to tell the person who asked the question to leave the meeting.

    He didn't have the guts or native wit to do that.

    Now he's spinning it that he didn't dignify the question with an answer.


  42. GOPCrusher

    It is illegal to own a gun if you're a felon, but that doesn't stop them from obtaining one illegally, or complaining that we don't need gun control, but we need the existing laws enforced.

    1. OzoneTom

      Thank Jeezus for our god-given gun-shows. If you are pre-meditating a murder, the existing laws can't keep up with you!

  43. 4tehlulz_lite

    Congressman Broun, do you support a Constitutional amendment guaranteeing that each state will get a dollar back for every dollar sent to the federal government?

    Why do I hear crickets congressman? Do you like leaching off the rest of the country?

  44. GOPCrusher

    Well, you know that Saudi Arabian chemical engineering student was plotting to blow up George Bush, so……..

  45. DustBowlBlues

    More likely he'll join some fellow teabaggers and try to bully a Democratic official. I hate these fuckers, and I live among them.

  46. weshightower

    I am from rural Georgia. You would be surprised how people think. You would not be surprised how stupid can be.

    Education has nothing to do with it. It has more to do with tradition and the hate of wisdom outside of that.

    If is very much a conformist way of existing.

  47. Dudleydidwrong

    Broun is a dropout from John Wilkes Booth high school in Dumshit, GA. The school's nickname is The Assassins. The school newspaper is The Pistol and the Yearbook is called The Target. The yearbook never includes pictures of the graduates because there aren't any, but they keep track of the few who make it through the GED process or earn a diploma either in prison or congress.

  48. gurukalehuru

    Here's a suggestion as to how to raise students test scores of students throughout the south, end the political power of the teabaggers, and bring massive cultural improvements all in one fell swoop.
    Relax immigration restrictions, particularly on large families from overcrowded countries with high educational standards (e.g. China and India), and provide them with placement in those states which have an appropriate climate, i.e. the South.
    Within a short span of time, the baggers will be outnumbered by people who not only speak better English than they do, but also have some grasp of American history and politics, because they are actually capable of learning it in a school.

  49. Walkinwiddaking

    Can't we just lock Georgia up in the attic of the nation's capital? Like a moonbarking mad uncle?

  50. glamourdammerung

    As hard as that liberal media keeps telling us "both sides do it", I am still not seeing this sort of behavior from more than one side.

  51. aqua_buddha

    I think it's virtually mandatory that John Boehner step up to declare that he will "take the president on his word" that he doesn't deserve assasination. But of course beyond that, it's not John Boehner's place "to tell the American People what to think".

    Another thorny little rhetorical pitfall avoided. G. O. P. ! G. O. P. !

  52. fuflans

    <also: i'm a little afraid to ask why a lousiana lobbyist is 'reading' to children.>

    oh drunk fuflans put this on the wrong thread.

    fuflans hangs head in shame…

  53. VinnyThePooh

    I think the Good Ol' Prick just volunteered for a 2-year tour in Afghanistan – or a nice vacation at Hotel Gitmo.

  54. lulzmonger

    "Hey, everybody! Let's blatantly demonstrate that we're mostly a pack of barbaric hate-sluts completely divorced from reality who can barely eat with utensils & walk upright!"

    "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Mission accomplished!"

    MOAR proof that vasectomies are vastly under-rated.

  55. Schmegeg

    Can we just go ahead and burn down Atlanta at this point? Every 150 years or so, it seems like a good idea. Some old fashioned Yankee Aggression!

  56. Tundra Grifter

    From the latest story:

    "Broun, a doctor from Athens in his third congressional term, routinely calls Obama a socialist and said shortly after Obama's election in 2008 that he feared the president would establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist dictatorship."

    Why would Mr. Broun possibly think those comments could lead to such a question?

    He must be a heckofa doctor. "Geez, Mrs. Jones, I'm really sorry your husband died. But that doesn't mean my operation was a failure…"
