DRUNK REPUBLICANS IN THE NEWS  12:30 pm October 12, 2011

‘Allow Guns in Bars’ Tennessee Rep. Arrested Driving Drunk With Gun

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Curry Todd: slightly more popular than herpes.Tennessee GOP state representative person with comical pirate name Curry Todd sponsored one of these “what could possibly go wrong?” gun rights laws so popular with the wingnuts these days that allows handgun owners to march around inside their favorite local liquor establishments while carrying weapons. What a good law that is! And what does a Tennessee lawmaker do with a good law? He puts it to use: Todd was arrested for driving around wasted with a loaded handgun in the console of his truck last night in Nashville. 

From AP:

Rep. Curry Todd, a lead sponsor of a law allowing handgun carry permit holders to bring their guns into bars, has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and possession of a gun while under the influence.

Police say in court documents that the Collierville Republican was pulled over in Nashville late Tuesday. He allegedly failed a roadside sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer. A loaded Smith & Wesson 38 Special was found in a holster stuffed between the driver seat and the center console.

And oh look! We just found his mugshot:

Some of you might argue that this is karma, but we would argue that this was the only possible logical outcome. [AP]

Needs more Darwinism.

BaldarTFlagass October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

I think it has all the Darwinism it can stand.

Maman October 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

He is going to argue that the law will work because he didn't shoot anyone.

Grief_Lessons October 12, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Nope, Darwin isn't working unless someone's dead. He's like James Bond and Dick Cheney that way.

GunToting[Redacted] October 12, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Or he blows his bollocks off, like the moran in Phoenix with his girlfriend's pink revolver.

horsedreamer_1 October 12, 2011 at 6:54 pm

Wow. And I thought Chyna had a large clit.

Negropolis October 13, 2011 at 12:06 am

Alas, he is but a runner-up. He would have had to die to win the "award."

V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡ October 12, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Not in Tennessee, since the Scopes trial.

Plus, the innocent meth dealer he runs into while drunk shouldn't suffer for Curry Todd's sins.

nounverb911 October 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Was the bar called the "OK Corral"?

chicken_thief October 12, 2011 at 12:53 pm

The Blue Dolphin, perhaps?

Swampgas_Man October 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Every shot a winner!

widestanceshakedown October 12, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Given the GOP-ness involved, I'd cold guess, 'The White Swallow.'

horsedreamer_1 October 12, 2011 at 6:55 pm

Shittier. Flabbier. Drinking too much.

MittsHairHelmet October 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Smart move. Never take the breathalyzer.

Maman October 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Where's the sexytime part? We're nearly halfway through Cocktober!

Swampgas_Man October 12, 2011 at 1:03 pm

In part two, he shoots himself in the dick.

RandPaulsToupee October 12, 2011 at 3:37 pm

I thought he just did shoot himself in the dick!

SorosBot October 12, 2011 at 1:17 pm

The sexytime part is already there; he was drunk while carrying the large penis substitute he uses to compensate for his tiny dick.

johnnyzhivago October 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm

If he married Tim Curry, he'd be Curry Curry!

BaldarTFlagass October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

No Same Sex Marriage, you!!!

Sue4466 October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

And if Todd Pailin married Curry, he'd be Todd Todd.

chicken_thief October 12, 2011 at 12:52 pm

And much happier than he is with his current spouse. A.ledge.ed.lee.

JustPixelz October 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Or if he married Todd Palin, he'd be Todd Todd.

Chichikovovich October 12, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Ya gotta act faster if you want to be the first to pick lowhanging fruit like that!

Geminisunmars October 12, 2011 at 1:13 pm

And if he fucked a chicken it would be Chicken Curry. Or a hot Toddy.

DaRooster October 12, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Or married The San Diego Chicken… Curry Chicken.

Doktor Zoom October 12, 2011 at 3:04 pm

And if he goes into hiding, he'll be exercising his right to Concealed Curry.

DaRooster October 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm

Was he on a family trip to Topeka?

Oblios_Cap October 12, 2011 at 12:48 pm

Paradoxically, he was heading to Abilene.

Omophagist October 12, 2011 at 1:08 pm

If you were a woman, I'd punch you right in the face for that comment.

GOPCrusher October 12, 2011 at 1:25 pm

He's the leading candidate for Governor of Texas.

JackDempsey1 October 12, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Ordinarily, I don't dispense legal advice gratis……
I would plead NON-temporary insanity.

LesBontemps October 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Don't need to plead .. on these facts, court should take judicial notice.

NYNYNYjr October 12, 2011 at 8:08 pm

I would plead Non-Temporary drunkenness. Or Post-traumatic Non-temporary pre-sobriety.

ALso– Love love his name. Curry Todd. har har.

Come here a minute October 12, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Cross-referenced under "no one could have predicted".

Sue4466 October 12, 2011 at 12:36 pm

He was just climbing out of the ivory tower that is the Tennessee legislature to see how this whole guns while drunk thing would work out.

And it worked out as most sober people would suspect.

sezme October 12, 2011 at 12:37 pm

How is this illegal? Did the cops run out of pot smokers and fraudulent voters to arrest? Anyway, he should be released on bail forthwith so he can amend his law to decriminalize DUIs, also.

GunToting[Redacted] October 12, 2011 at 1:17 pm

I thought Tennessee decriminalized drunk driving, since they don't have the munnies to enforce this antiquated law.

Jesus Tap-dancing Christ…that mugshot! I can't tell if he's drunk or just got bitch-slapped, Topeka style.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 12, 2011 at 2:04 pm

I find myself in favor of a "concealed Curry" bill in Tennessee.

emmelemm October 12, 2011 at 3:44 pm

I know… it's a thing most amazing, isn't it?

Rotundo_ October 12, 2011 at 5:46 pm

No, that's well and truly drunk. Also known as 5 minutes or less from puking on your shoes drunk, or if he falls asleep, the John Bonham/Keith Moon prolonged nappy time drunk. If the asshole had blown, the breathalyzer would have erupted into a shower of sparks igniting Curry Bubba's breath into a not roman not candle.

prommie October 12, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Holy fucking shit, its the real-life, flesh and blood version of Cleetus, the Slack-Jawed Yokel!

Grief_Lessons October 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Rentboy in the trunk?

widestanceshakedown October 12, 2011 at 1:15 pm

That explains why he refused the breathalyzer; it also detects eau d'cocque.

Rotundo_ October 12, 2011 at 5:50 pm

If only, imagine the faces on some of these good ol' boys when the local cops pull them and have them blow and the breathalyzer returns a mechanically voiced (think Stephen Hawking voiced) reply "You have a blood alcohol percentage of point zero one zero. And the twink you just blew gave you gonorrhea. Have a nice day."

Sue4466 October 12, 2011 at 12:38 pm

If we outlaw guns in bars, then only criminals will get to be drunk with guns!

JustPixelz October 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm

You can have my gun, when you pry it from my pudgy, wavering, sperm-coated hands.

What's the name of that cocktail, you know, the one where you mix gunpowder and alcohol? Oh yeah, the "negligent discharge" I think. Which is probably what this toerag's daddy had too near his mother's pink bits….

GOPCrusher October 12, 2011 at 1:27 pm

Negligent discharge? Isn't that what they call jacking off in the shower in Alabama?

Neilist_Returns October 12, 2011 at 9:31 pm

The correct term is "Accident Discharge," or "AD."

Usually, AD occurs immediately after a negative response to the "Promise not to come in my mou . . . ."

Oh, wait a minute. You were talking about FIREarms.

Never mind.

What the fuck kind of name is "Curry???"

LesBontemps October 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Indian?

chicken_thief October 12, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Some kind of geyh Brit/Hindu/Muslin morf, obviously. It's also the phonetic spelling of the word "carry" as pronounced in TN, but that's probably unrelated.

LesBontemps October 12, 2011 at 1:08 pm

So he has a brother named Cash?

PubOption October 12, 2011 at 1:30 pm

I think his parents got his name backwards, it should have been Todd Curry.

Barrelhse October 12, 2011 at 2:30 pm

I thought you were going to say Ddot Yrruc.

Barrelhse October 12, 2011 at 2:28 pm

Sounds like a girl's name to me.

Attend the tale of Curry Todd
His face is flushed and he drives real odd
He packs his Wesson and zips through town
He'll get reelected next time around

LesBontemps October 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Mr. Sondheim's lawyer is calling on line 1.

mereoblivion October 12, 2011 at 2:45 pm

I wish! (Always wanted to meet Mr. S, and how better than through flattering him with extreme plagiarism?)

Doktor Zoom October 12, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Or if you're lucky, Sondheim might consider it an audition, like he did when Stephen Colbert finally figured out what happened to the clowns. That prompted Sondheim to cast Colbert in the revival of "Company."

mereoblivion October 12, 2011 at 3:29 pm

if I could sing &/or dance and were 20 years younger, I'd be a shoo-in. (Wait, can Colbert sing?)

ProudLibunatic October 12, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Lack of singing ability didn't stop Helena Bonham Carter. (Rowr!) She looked good, though.
Actually, I think Colbert can sing very well.

NorthStarSpanx October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

You got work to do when you get out Curry, next up on the legislative agenda, legalizing armed DUI's.

Sue4466 October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

Looks more like Pickled Todd to me.

Texan_Bulldog October 12, 2011 at 12:41 pm

Curry Todd? Sounds like an entree at an Indian restaurant.

Lascauxcaveman October 12, 2011 at 12:42 pm

This guy is just a state legislator? Sorry, but in that case, it needs more wife beating and/or underage hookers and meth to meet Wonkette standards. GOP state legislators are to be presumed crazy and dangerous until proven otherwise.

BaldarTFlagass October 12, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I think he was on the way to the groundbreaking for that new mosque.

jodyleek October 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

"During debate over the bill in 2009, Todd assured lawmakers that gun permit holders would be careful about not violating the ban on drinking in bars or restaurants while carrying a gun."

The check's in the mail. I won't cum in your mouth. Yes, this is my natural hair. Pfff!

MaxNeanderthal October 12, 2011 at 12:49 pm

You forgot "Of course size doesn't matter, darling".

Chichikovovich October 12, 2011 at 12:59 pm

We're only going to use this RICO statute on organized crime. And we're only using the Patriot act wiretaps on terrorists.

Because people go to bars to not drink all the time, yep.

Well, Pac Man Jones goes to strips clubs for food.

SayItWithWookies October 12, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Come on, it's completely unfair to arrest a legislator while he's doing research on what behaviors involving intoxication and firearms to legalize next. It's like Tennessee has some sort of vendetta against scientific research. Oh, wait.

And so was Curry.

You know how a picture is worth a thousand words? That mugshot is the embodiment of the Teabagger movement in 21st Century America. The mugshot should be hung in the National Gallery next to Jefferson, Washington, Adams, etc. It shows just how far this country has fallen.

Barrelhse October 12, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Sadly, it looks just like my mother. And she doesn't even drink.

Rotundo_ October 12, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Only if it were the full body shot in the picture, being held upright by a pair of guards and a very dark stain on the trousers proceding down both legs, or if he projectile vomited. Too much dignity left in this mugshot.

chicken_thief October 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Not his fault. They were doing shots during the debate and every time someone said "999" he had to pound one.

Not_So_Much October 12, 2011 at 1:01 pm

If it had been shots on the phrase "tax cuts", one of them would've died of renal failure in the first 11 minutes.

Because WHITEZ?

Wait a minute – he was drunk driving, but he didn't shoot anyone. See? The system works!!

This is frighteningly close to an actual serious post someone made in the Knoxville newspaper's comments section on this story.

There are some pretty funny comments up there . . . oh, they are all from Wonketteers, aren't they?

Ken, can you post some Wyoming or Vermont nutter stories? Us Tennesseans are getting a little chafed at this unfortunate notoriety.

At least this one didn't happen in Florida. Though something tells me there's a Florida connection in there somewhere if I bother to dig for it.

Barrelhse October 12, 2011 at 2:34 pm

God, I love New England.

Fawkdifiknow October 12, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Of course he was driving. Probably too drunk to walk.

DahBoner October 12, 2011 at 10:26 pm

Walking, shit, possession of a gun while under the influence?

What's the point of getting drunk in America if you can't have a gun?

For a party that denies evolution, they seem hell bent to prove that Darwin was right.

From the article:

“Court documents don't indicate whether Todd had been drinking at a bar.”

Well in Tennessee apparently you don’t need to be in one to assert that ‘it's always five o'Glock somewheres’

RedneckMuslin October 12, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Wait! He had a loaded gun in the truck and he let them arrest him? Pussy!

"Todd also drew national attention last year for saying in a committee hearing that illegal immigrants can "go out there like rats and multiply" after hearing that federal law requires the state to extend prenatal care to women regardless of their citizenship status because all children born in the U.S. are citizens."

Barrelhse October 12, 2011 at 2:36 pm

So he was probably just out shooting rats, right?

Well there is a natural selection upside to this; what with the clear relationship between guns/explosives + alcohol + testosterone leading to a Darwin Award or at least honorable mention.

He had to get drunk when he found out his cousin,Palin Todd has been takeing seconds from a Black Man.

Could he beat the rap by claiming that driving while loaded is now legal in this here state?

THAATS OK…NEW LAW *BURP* , "DRIVVING DRUKN WITH A GUN" *HICKuP*

Redhead October 12, 2011 at 1:22 pm

But you know if someone had started shooting at the cop, Todd would have had his gun and been able to start shooting back, probably taking out the shooter and ending the massacre… or just shooting everyone BUT the shooter with his drunken aim and at least getting if over sooner. One of the two.

MzNicky October 12, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Not to pile on or anything, but Rep. Curry Todd is also well-known down here in the great state of Tennessee as bein' against the illegals because they all "breed like rats," he sez.

PubOption October 12, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Was he propped up against a wall, or lying flat on the floor, when that mugshot was taken?

SorosBot October 12, 2011 at 1:24 pm

He's doing his part to uphold stereotypes of Tennesseans as a bunch of drunken gun-nut rednecks.

May I suggest the addition of "inbred" and "drooling"?

Wyoming just passed a law that allows everyone to carry a concealed weapon. I believe I can guess that the proper response here is, "console, libtard, ya can't hurt no one when it's in the console"…or something like that…I'm really not sure. I just keep mine in my pocket.

owhatever October 12, 2011 at 1:50 pm

It's a great day in Tennessee! Representative Todd selflessly went out and proved that no black hiphop Mexican rat-breeding drug gangster is going to mess with a responsible white man packing heat. Thank God for Todd! Shame on the police.

If any politician can be said to represent their constituency, it is this man. This is truly a democratic success story!

You know, the problem with the law is that it didn't go far enough. The assumption was gun owners would be responsible for their behavior. What they need is that if they aren't responsible, like the good old boy we have here, they just take them out and shoot them with their own gun. They always be talking about the deter ant of the death penalty. Well…?

Seems fair to me.

Yertle the Turtle has sunk so low!
Just how much further do you think he can he go?
A drunk, crazy wing-nut you'll have to agree,
And worst of all: in the GOP.

Armed, drunk and Republican is no way to go through life, son.

Bonus points if he was drinking Colt 45 while carrying a Colt .45.

If you think this asshat looks like a total retardo, imagine what the morons who voted for him look like. Guess I'll have to add Kansas to the list of States to avoid at all cost.

Wait, so it's legal to bring a gun into a bar, but not legal to carry a gun while drunk?

I has a confuse.

The Boozehounds of the Colliersville;
or, Was Curry Blurry?

"Guns, God, and Booze!
Why should I choose?
Let MADD harpies whine,
When liquored I'm fine.

"At least when imbibin'
I ain't multiplyin'
Like immigrant rats
With their anchorin' brats."

You mean letting drunks pack in bars means more drunks pulling out their guns on cops, when they get pulled over for a DUI?

WHO COULD HAVE FREAKING PREDICTED THAT, RIGHT CONDI RICE?

He was heading to Florida for an execution?

From the AP story –
(Gerald) McCormick said the arrest doesn't change his views about the guns in bars law.

"It's a bad idea to drink and carry a gun, obviously," he said. "I don't know the details of what happened with Rep. Todd last night, but I think he would agree me."

—–
Way to forget about the drunk driving portion there. Typical rethug thinking, rewriting history as it happens
