Devil Child Scott Walker Welcomes Gun Nuts And Their Weapons To Capitol

The king demon shall now summon the other demons to his rescue.Stinky corporate gym sock puppet Scott Walker has a crafty new rule for Wisconsin state Capitol visitors: the guys on his team, Republican gun nuts who want to be able to carry their guns wherever they go, will now be allowed to bring concealed weapons into the building. The people on the other team, the harassing Marxists who want to be able to bring in video cameras to record lawmaker goblins whooping and dancing around the bonfire of voting rights and state pensions, will still be violently arrested and carted off. But here’s Scott Walker’s main point for you libtards who refuse to leave him alone on his own turf: which team here now has guns?

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:

Under rules planned for one chamber, guns would be allowed on the Assembly floor and in the Assembly viewing galleries, said sources who have been briefed on the plans. That would mean the public could bring guns into the viewing galleries but would still have to adhere to other existing rules, including one that bars the use of still cameras and video cameras.

Oh, Scott Walker. He is such a terrible wuss villain that he has to make other tough guys do his intimidation work for him. Sounds about right. [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]

    so guns? but no cameras? weapons are ok? something that can be used as evidence not ok? wow. less than a month till the recall petition process can officially start.

    1. Terry

      That's so if some manifesto writing right winger decides to come to town and shoot someone on the Assembly floor or in the Galleries, there's not visual proof of it. They can blame in on a hippie or a non-political crazy.

      1. poncho_pilot

        that was my thought, as well. i try not to be paranoid but i do like to run through the possible scenarios and meanings behind an action like this.

        i think it's more likely this was done to intimidate, or give the appearance of such, or just to pander to their base.

        1. Lascauxcaveman

          Here's the beauty part: Some gun nut pulls out an AK and takes out a couple dozen legislators/spectators, and the video of the whole thing that you shot on your camera phone will be inadmissible evidence. Because your camera was there illegally.

        2. GOPCrusher

          Agreed. Walker's probably safe in assuming that him and the rest of the Republiklans will be swept out of office shortly, so they figure if they pass a law now allowing firearms in the Galleries, the Tea Baggers can start showing up strapped to prevent the Democrats from repealing all the disasters that these fuckheads passed.

      1. poncho_pilot

        the republicans have probably had their fill of video footage from the floor during the protests. i guess if you don't want to look like an asshole on camera, don't be an asshole.

    2. crybabyboehner

      I guess technically they could ban just about every cellphone … that would make life interesting for the lobbyists.

    1. WunkRocker

      What I was thinking…gun shaped camera. Are they banning Cell phones? Because you'd have to try hard to find one sans camera these days. Our criminal courts bldg is like that. Because you know people also GET MARRIED by a judge. And well it should be a crime.In any event you have to surrender your camera. But not your phone with a camera.

    2. DahBoner

      Does it have Pandora built-in, so you can stream death metal music while on a shooting spree?

      This is a very important feature to have….

    1. prommie

      Thats why all the kids should be armed. There wouldn't have been a Columbine massacre if all the kids were armed. Nope, there would only be about 25,000 dead a year in daily gunbattles, is all.

        1. Occupy V572

          Neilist doesn't come around here much anymore, so I'll have to stand in for him and say it's Beretta, not Baretta, and I only know this because the factory's in Brescia, where my girlfriend is from.

          1. Barb

            Neilist told me that he was eating British "pasties" the last time he was here. I was like, I had one too! We call them "Hot Pockets" here in America.

          2. Occupy V572

            Hey, the pussy's back! In your avatar, that is.

            By the way, those are pronounced as if they rhymed with "fast" rather than "waste."

    2. JustPixelz

      True story: When I visited Israel on a tour, there was an Israeli school group visiting the ruins of Masada. With them were two men armed with automatic weapons. Our guide explained that all school groups in Israel were accompanied by security, usually retired soldiers. This is because some time in the past, a group like that had been attacked by the PLO or something like that. So now there are guards.

      Lesson for Wisconsin: Hire retired soldiers for school groups visiting the Capitol. Pay for them with a tax on bullets.

      1. prommie

        If the Isrealis weren't running their country as an apartheid, racist theocracy, maybe they wouldn't need armed guards.

        I'm like a Deadhead for Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. I go see 'em in Mexico every year, every show they do here in SA, Austin and at Gruene Hall, seen them in Boston, caught them in Madison last month, blah blah blah. It's kind of sick.

        1. Sparky_McGruff

          I saw them long ago as the "Refreshments". One of the few perks from my wife's job at the time was getting comp tickets to local shows.

          1. BaldarTFlagass

            They still play plenty of the old Refreshments tunes. In fact they played Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy all the way through last month out at House of Blues in Vegas. I guess as long as King of the Hill is shown in syndication 1200 times a day across this fair nation, and he gets his penny or whatever per showing for having written the theme song, he can keep touring the small venues and making an honest buck.

          2. FakaktaSouth

            I would've very much enjoyed hearing them do that whole cd live – I used to get to play cards and drink and smoke and listen to FFBB…when we were young and beautiful and had no childrens… They've ventured in to Bama some. I also looooooove The Bottle and Fresh Horses, I listened to it this morning on the way to the gym. Ol Roger makes me so happy. He is my favorite thing from Arizona EVER.

            The "Yeah Let's go" is a very popular shout out when they play that. Actually, it's pretty much a cult band now, everyone at the show knows all the lyrics of all the songs and sings along for the whole drunken show; I'm always hoarse for a day or two. Any youtube clips you see, the sound is terrible because of this. They put on an awesome live show.
            They don't seem to tour the southeast much these days… http://azpeacemakers.com/index.htm

          4. FakaktaSouth

            Holy Schmoly I totally bookmarked that – I have friends and family in Colorado, and I would absolutely give anything to get to be around a bunch of people who loved these guys. I guess it was maybe 4 yrs ago that my friend told me AFTER the show that he had seen them at The Nick (cool ass nasty old bar) in Birmingham. (so sad) Thanks for the site, that is fabulous.

          5. BaldarTFlagass

            Pleasure's mine. They toured this spring, summer, and fall, finished up at the end of October, so I doubt if there will be any more shows than what the site is showing right now until the first of February.

          6. FakaktaSouth

            I'm gonna keep up with it – the way things go now days, I like having stuff to look forward to and this would work!

      Scott Walker is neither Fizzy nor Fuzzy. I am unable to assess whether he is Big, but I suspect he is not particularly Buzzy.

          1. Lascauxcaveman

            He looks so noble on a ten-spot, but they sure made him look like candy-ass prick in that HBO John Adams series.

  3. EatsBabyDingos

    And if they would put in a bar with free beer, we might have a "remedy" that even Sarah would approve of when the Rino's kill each other off. Republican C.H.U.D.'s.

    1. poncho_pilot

      they don't need a bar in the Capitol. the building is essentially surrounded by bars. and a brothel.

      shhh! nobody's supposed to know about that last one but everyone knows.

      1. Jerri

        A brothel? I lived there for 5 years and never heard of any kind of brothel. I feel like Nelson Muntz et al when they learned the Maison Derrière existed.

  4. MrFizzy

    I really have to question the sanity of someone who is so reviled encouraging weapons where he works. What a fool.

      1. MrFizzy

        Another few down-ticks in the economy and I think you're gonna start finding out how many guns there really are. Should be wild times, and I hope I'm not here.

      1. TitsAkimbo

        Our former county sheriff shot himself in the groinal area one time. Unfortunately, it happened in the courthouse so no photographic evidence exists.

  5. Indiepalin

    A response to a comment made on Breitbart yesterday regarding a man bringing an AK47 to Occupy Atlanta, where I praised the occupiers for respecting the second amendment:

    "The only difference is, when a Tea Party or 2nd Amend-supporter brings a gun, it's to show that Americans have the right to carry guns. When an Occupy protester does it, they're not talking about the second-amendment. They're talking about "killing the rich" a little more than second-amendment rights aren't they?

    So if a Tea Party person brings a gun with a clear intention, which is not to threaten any specific group but to exercise a right, then the media goes after them.

    But if an Occupy protester brings a gun without a clear intention, to an event which is actively calling for violence against a particular group, then the media buries it.

    Please explain to me why media bias doesn't bother you. A useful lie is still a lie. You're being used and deceived and thanking them for it."

    Thanks, Gov Wanker for proving their point.

      1. SexySmurf

        It used to be legal in California to openly carry guns in public. Then the Black Panthers started doing it, and the legislature passed a bill making it illegal to do so.

        (For bonus points, guess which actor turned Governor signed the bill into law.)

        1. Dok-cupy Everything

          Acted like an actor…Hollyweird. Acted like a liberal. Acted like General Franco when he acted like governor of California, then he acted like a republican. Then he acted like somebody was going to vote for him for president. And now we act like 26% of the registered voters is actually a mandate. We’re all actors in this I suppose.

        Some stir about that around Massachusetts back in 1775. British were trying to enforce the rights of loyal citizens, but some dirty hippies acted up a bit.

      3. Guppy

        Well, it goes back to the basic tenet of American conservatism: only the "right sort of people" have any rights at all.

    1. Not_So_Much

      I click on your baboon-ass red ID from time-to-time ust to see what you're stirring up over there. But every time I look, the toxic/dishonest/stoopid combo platter just makes me sad. False Equivalencies R Us.

    2. Chichikovovich

      Pretty weak post from the Breitbarter. a) I doubt that there are many occupy protesters carrying guns – that's a rightwing invention. People are being arrested in droves at these things, and carrying a gun under those circumstances is bad judgement. For Christ's sake, if a couple of women standing quietly behind a barrier get pepper sprayed, imagine the beatdown someone carrying a gun would get. b) The tea partiers were doing more than just making an abstract claim about rights to carry guns. Many – including people running for office – referred to the "second amendment solutions" that they would be willing to resort to if elections didn't turn out exactly the way they want.

  6. widestanceshakedown

    Note to Visitors: leave nothing but spent shells, take nothing but aim when visiting our capitol. Thank you.

  7. BaldarTFlagass

    To be fair, I think that Democrats can carry weapons too. Should make for some interesting filibusters.

  8. freakishlywrong

    So, when only criminal Republicans with guns are lawmaking; only criminals will make Republican stupid gun laws. Or something.

      1. SorosBot

        It's something from a cheesy sci-fi comedy that Will Ferrel did a few years ago that flopped; I don't know why so many of the olds keep referencing it.

        1. EatsBabyDingos

          What is a "Will Ferrel?" I only know the cheesy tv show from reading the Wonkette daily. Before meds and after.

    1. EatsBabyDingos

      Because I'd rather feel bad than feel nothing at all. But with Walker, you feel bad and a foreboding nothingness

  9. Fauxhemian

    How ironic that conservatives and everyone else from the corporate world are referring to the OWS movement as an increasingly violent mob. These people should be fucking ashamed of themselves. In keeping with the non-violent, non-gun toting spirit of OWS here's my contribution to OCCUPY. Please pass it on. Thanks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0Kr1lHgggU

    1. SorosBot

      Well there has been a lot of violence at the Occupy Wall Street protests. That violence has been committed by cops against the protestors, but gives claims that OWS is violent truthiness for the media.

  10. prommie

    Its the second amendment right to free speach! Its what makes Amurrica great. That and the second amendment right to vote with bullets. Corporations are people and bullets are words and guns are votes! The second amendment right to kill traitors, defined as "people you disagree with."

  11. ifthethunderdontgetya

    I think I'm beginning to understand.

    Our country has fallen under the control of Reptile People from outer space.

    They come here to make funny videos that they show back home.

    'Hahaha! Watch this. You won't believe we tricked the humans into banning cameras but not guns in their 'governing houses'!

  12. magic_titty

    The flash of still cameras tend to upset gun nuts, and may cause them to fire off a few rounds in anger and confusion. These new rules are really for the best.

      1. bagofmice

        In my conjugation, a flash bang leads to le petit mort. As violet wand enthusiasts describe it, shock and awe.

  13. jaytingle

    All a governor has to do is waste hundreds of legislative hours on pointless bills such as this one, a law that appears to tickle the fancy of an aggressive wedge of the electorate. So giddy are the gun enthusiasts that they happily sign away their remaining rights and wealth to the same cynical governor. The only condition is that the governor is obliged to treat dark-skinned people worse. Which he's doing anyway. Shrewd.

    1. poncho_pilot

      “You … bitches! Don’t you f—ing know? I’m Scott f—ing Walker, the governor of this state!”

  14. El Pinche

    Are concealed pink dildos welcomed? When armed patriots are hiding from mean librals, they like to cuddle up to a nice pink dildo in the Capitol restroom.

    1. Fawkdifiknow

      These people and their bosses from the NRA all suffer from "arrested development" at the thumb sucking, toy gun fetish age of 5.

  15. Not_So_Much

    While this is of course stupid and therefore consistent with everything Walker has done, I very much approve of him being represented on that sign as Mr. Hanky.

  16. DahBoner

    " That would mean the public could bring guns into the viewing galleries but would still have to adhere to other existing rules…"

    Hmmm….I wonder if laser-scopes and silencers will be allowed?

  17. GunToting[Redacted]

    I find it comical that the wingtards seem to think that they are the only ones packing. There are a LOT of us non-baggers who enjoy their bang-sticks.

  18. SorosBot

    Hopefully the NRA will continue with the "allow people to carry concealed weapons everywhere" movement to its logical extreme. Why, I believe the daycare in my building doesn't allow the toddlers to bring concealed 9mms to class; hopefully their Second Amendment right will someday be protected.

      1. EatsBabyDingos

        And when those future Lil Jar Jar Fetal Bushbabies fire an RPG in the sixth month, they'll get "a womb with a view."

  19. prommie

    Cameras make an indelible record, they are the best 'witnesses" to what is happening. Whereas guns can silence a witness. Makes perfect sense, to allow guns, and prohibit cameras. Makes perfect sense, to a criminal, anyway.

    1. DaRooster

      There are times I had wished I was dead… and those are usually the times I am glad there was no photographic evidence.

  20. chicken_thief

    Imagine the highjinx when some clever sophomore brings a red laser pen along when his class visits the Assembly and flashes it on the chests of random legislators. What a hoot!

  21. JustPixelz

    When explaining why Demoncrats need to get a government ID to vote, the Repubicans are fond of saying "you need an ID to get on an airplane, so you should need one to vote too". By the same reasoning, you cannot bring a gun on an airplane so you should not be able to bring one to the legislature. Or a bar. Or a classroom. Or … well, you get the idea.

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      Yeah, they're still working on that airplane deal. 'Cause a well-regulated militia would have been just the thing to stop those 911 terrists…

  22. SayItWithWookies

    Scott Walker and the other Second Amendment fetishists just don't feel safe from hippies and Code Pink ladies unless they're waving their little compensatory organs around as some sort of active reminder that their "shut up" is louder than a protester's cry for justice. No wonder they were against bombing Qaddafi.

    1. Neilist_Returns

      You even TRY to get to Cannes before "Sumner II" is released, and you'll hear from my attorneys: "Colt, Smith, Wesson & Glock."

      1. widestanceshakedown

        Settle, N_R.

        A film like TR II. . .TSAS would be a GOP-vanity production seen only on the little screens on Canadian-made buses full of losers selling books and the freaks who love them. Second billing to the Rand film trilogy, in other words.

  23. Mort_Sinclair

    I'm hopeful this new concealed carry in the capitol building of Wisconsin works as well as a self-cleaning oven.

  24. Toomush_Infer

    So, Facebook and U-tube are mightier than an AK-47, which I already guessed, but….I'm still having fun imagining the security booths: "Um, is that a cannon or a Canon, sir?….you'll have to stand aside…..no, you cannot point that thing at me, sir….I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to step over here…. I SAID you cannot point that thing at me…."

  25. Guppy

    This law will get revoked about three seconds after a union leader utters the phrase "second amendment remedies."

    1. SorosBot

      An actual new Black Panther movement, following in the original group's tradition of arming themselves for protection as the NRA claims they support for everyone, would get a lot of the wingnuts to change their tune on gun control fairly quickly.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Surely, charging them with gun law violations was NOT what the founders intended. I'm sure the NRA leaped to their defense. They did, right? What?

  26. Chichikovovich

    Genuine question here – not snark. Doesn't the usual rationale for banning video cameras in legislative buildings, etc. cite security considerations? That someone could smuggle a weapon inside a video camera?

  27. chascates

    Ha! Here in Texas you can sashay right into the Capitol building bypassing security if you just show them your CC permit!

    Wait a minute. We have probably the worst state legislature in the country! Poor Wisconsin.

    1. poncho_pilot

      doesn't the Texas constitution have like 10,000 amendments or something? i think i'd heard that in my Texas history class.

      1. chascates

        Darn tootin'! And that's happened with the lege only meeting every 2 years. Imagine if the body was full time.

          1. Dok-cupy Everything

            As Molly Ivins said, The Texas Lege is the “the national laboratory for bad government.” Pity that it has gotten so much competition for the crown recently.

  28. neiltheblaze

    If someone pops the good Governor in the face with a Magnum, they may rethink their position. Not until then, though.

  29. Blueb4sunrise

    I think Walker is just copying the U.S. House. Wasn't there talk of both allowing guns in the Chamber and then a bulletproof dome over them – between the floor and the gallery?

  30. DahBoner

    And what do you say to a girl who has words printed on the butt of her pants?

    Excuse me miss, but I was reading your pants and found the story fascinating. I was just wondering how the story ends?

    1. TitsAkimbo

      I never much cared about that practice until I saw the word "juicy" on a 9-year-old's sweats. I think even malwart stopped selling those.

      1. SorosBot

        I'm sure our friend Autymn D.C. from yesterday would say that is perfectly OK, and we're being bigoted by saying children shouldn't be sexualized.

      2. ProudLibunatic

        At least the "juicy" ones were expensive and fairly well made. The ones that said "pink" were cheap little numbers from Victoria's Secret, (or Vickie's Titties, as my husband calls them).

        Why yes, I have 2 daughters. Why do you ask?

  31. thefrontpage

    Reality Check, October 28, 2011

    1. Walker is likely the worst, or one of the worst, governors that Wisconsin has ever had.

    2. The batch of moron, idiot, psycho and wholly ignorant Republican governors that were voted into office in 2010 represent one of the completely worst–literally worst–batch of new governors in the entire history of the United States of America.

    3. The current governors of Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Arizona, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana, Maine, Ohio, New Jersey, Virginia and Texas are literally ignorant, uneducated, moronic, idiotic, inept, out-of-touch with reality, out-of-touch with the zeitgeist, bizarrely and dangerously and stupidly partisan, backwards, and just plain psycho.

    4. The country needs to take a hint and refuse to vote into office morons such as these any other time in the future.

    5. Because of all this, President Obama should be re-elected to office in 2012.

  32. donner_froh

    I would love to hear the response of a 911 operator whose pay has been cut and who worries about being laid off.

    –Scott who? Scott Walker, the governor? Are there streams of bright red arterial blood pumping from your chest? No? Well call back when there are.

  33. actor212

    The obvious solution is to go out and buy cameras that are cleverly concealed as gunsights, then claim the GOP legislators ordered them.

  34. Limeylizzie

    I think the time has come for the Wonkette Commune, let's bring our friends and loved ones and go somewhere pretty and till the earth.

          1. chascates

            Uh, between Eugene and Corvallis. To the west just this side of the mountains. Near a river. Lots of fruit trees.

          2. Lascauxcaveman

            I've done that drive, it's pretty country, when it's not raining, which is rarely. I recommend instead finding a spot down by Bandon or Port Orford. But I'm a sucker for coastlines.

            (Also, re. above: that's "Vancouver Island" not Victoria Island, Chas. And it's not really all that precious, unless you're talking about the price of real estate around the city of Victoria. Once you get a few miles out of city limits, you're looking at typical rugged working class towns and lots of huge trees and loggers, and hunters and guns and whatnot. It's like Alaska with less snow and better healthcare.)

          3. chascates

            My bad! I always get that wrong. And I hear the city of Victoria is rather staid. How about Reedsport, Oregon? Crab, clams, salmon, steelhead, tuna. I'm raising pigs and ducks in drought-worn central Texas so it'll be a breeze there. LimeyLizzie can have a small theater.

          4. Lascauxcaveman

            Reedsport, Newport, Tillamook, any of those little port towns are pretty swell. And most of them aren't too 'precious' (cough*CannonBeach*cough). The farther south you go, the warmer it gets.

          5. flamingpdog

            So much for my suggesting any place in Colorado. Unless you can take us back 65.5 million years in time, too, also.

          That's all well and good,dear, but you just know that the Stoat, Vole and Hairy Caterpillar lobby will be running things sooner or later.

          We will make artisanal goat cheese, and grow olives; it must be a mediterranean climate, these Pacific Northwest hipsters are insane, noone wants to be moldy all the time, fuck the rain.

          1. Limeylizzie

            Central coastal Chile has a beautiful Mediterranean climate and I could shear the Alpaca and other Camelids and knit us outfits.

          2. prommie

            Yes yes, yes! Perhaps Isla Negra where Neruda lived? By the way, I am the master of all shellfish-gathering, I am in fact a true barnegat bay clamdigger, I have dived for lobsters, worked on a lobster boat pulling traps, I clam every weekend in the summers, I catch crabs, and soft-shell crabs and I gather mussels! I live out on the water on my boat on the weekends and subsist on the shellfish I gather, it is my greatest joy in life!

            You are my dreamboat! I am only happy on the water, I grew up in a seaside town and my father was the Chairman of the Fisherman and Boatman's Protection Society and every Sunday we would eat whelks and winkles fresh from the boats and just sprinkled with malt vinegar, one of my happiest memories!

            If I had free access to lobster, I would be bigger than Brando. Lobster, but too, also, there is the Bahamian conch salad, in mexico called conch ceviche, which I adore, as well as stone crab and rock lobster, so New England or the Bahamas, either would be good; or, buy an old windjammer cruise ship and create a floating commune that migrates between the two places with the seasons.

      The island of secular, smart people has long been a fantasy of mine. It also includes tanned, muscular, scantily clad serving men dedicated to fulfilling all of the women's needs and desires. Plus, chocolate fountains and great cocktails.

      Seriously? Rock. Rock Rockaway. It's got everything I need. I did not care for the snotty hippies back in 71. I'd rather surf Rockaway with NYC floating on the bay behind me in the not too far away. Present company accepted of course -and Tucson too I always liked you, WTF.

    So the Second Amendment is cool, but the First is not? You can pack heat in the WI State Assembly but you can't photograph or video record officials elected by the people, supposedly doing the peoples' work on the Assembly floor?

    Fuck them. #OccupyMadison

    My take away —

    I can shoot a Wisconsin wingnut politician as long as I don't use a camera to do it.

    Tom Hagen: A lawyer with his briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns.
    Santino 'Sonny' Corleone: Hey, kid if you get a hundred men with guns, don't trade them in for some fucking lawyers!

      "he has gotten few complaints from callers or from neighbors in Mason"

      Check out where Mason is. There probably isn't more than a handful of liberals and/or Muslims within the entire listening area, and they've probably all got their iPods going.

    Wisconsin voters should practice firearms safety by emptying the Chamber — voting to recall the rest of the Teabagger fuckwits that oozed in in 2010.

    Imagine, it's been almost two whole weeks since I had an occasion to post this:

    "Relax! Your paranoid political fantasies notwithstanding, no one's going to take your guns away! Barring some seismic realignment in this country, the gun control debate is all but settled–and your side won. The occasional horrific civilian massacre is just the price the rest of us have to pay. Over and over again, apparently."

    " I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being as this is a Hasselblad HD-200MS, the most powerful camera in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?”

  41. owhatever

    Can I wear my vest packed with Semtex and C-4 plastique when I visit the legislature? A little pistol just doesn't seem to be enough to seriously deter those lefty camera-toters.

    1. GunToting[Redacted]

      I'd like to visit wearing my zombie-slayer slung over my shoulder (Remington 870 Express Magnum with ghost-ring sights, sidesaddles on the receiver and stock, and bayonet) and a full bandolier of #4 buckshot. I'm sure they all would be OK with that.

      1. DaRooster

        God man… I do wish I could own a gun (although I have become very proficient with a bow… within a quarter inch from 50 yards)…

  42. MistaEko

    Clearly they still have the guns, but I haven't checked in with Morrison recently. Do we still have the numbers?

  43. Occupy V572

    Slightly OT, but does anybody remember that blog called "Wonkette" that used to have 8 or 9 posts a day, with maybe 40 or 50 comments, instead of 2 or 3 posts a day with 400 comments?

    I'm just askin….

    1. user-of-owls

      Oh great, way to piss Ken off even more. Now we'll get one post a week.

      Thirty-two thousand words about how even Obama's fingernails should be tried for war crimes.

        This is a vanity problem. It's hard to read comments on my own posts when they're 3 or 4 pages down in the comments. I demand something! Occupy our Wonket!

        1. BaldarTFlagass

          That and the fact that once the comment count gets above 250 or 300, my computer slows down considerably and moving around the page becomes a nostalgia trip to the days of dial-up.

      Obviously Washington has completely cleaned up its act, and there's nothing to report in the way of sex scandals, corruption, or reality-defying public statements. All other political blogs have become polite centers of reasonable, informed discussion. "Also, too" ceased being a complete sentence, and Sarah Palin has dropped out of public life for good.

      I can't think of any other explanation.

  44. rickmaci

    One day it will sink in for everyone, including liberals, that the left has "second amendment remedies" too. Wake up sheeple!!

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      To be fair, we get them in the evenings now. In the middle of a World Series game, but it's the thought that counts.

  45. Neilist_Returns

    "Which team in here now has the guns"?

    :::Polite cough:::

    Someone call me?

    Neilist
    Director & Executive Producer: "The Caning Of Sumner II: The PAYBACK!"

    P.S. "When it comes time to 'vote,' be sure you have sufficient mags packed with PLENTY of 'ballots'!"

      It's clear that the Koch's and the rest of Teapbaggerdom are hoping for the long awaited Yahoo! Comment Board Civil War to start soon. Tommy Lee Jones is playing Stevens, I think James Spader is Sumner.

  46. Antispandex

    It's the left's fault for not being armed…wait, can I still say that? Oh, right, this isn't Facebook, or England. So, in the futrue, fire once for yes, and twice for no.

  47. __kth__

    If only young black men could be persuaded to en masse acquire concealed-carry permits, and to brandish pistols teabagger-style in inappropriate places like Congressional town halls and state capitols, the wingnuts would pull the plug themselves, unbidden, on this latest bit of gun nuttery faster than you can say "Gangsta Gangsta".

    1. mayor_quimby

      That would be the harshest whiplash you ever saw.
      I think Ice Cube has a clean record, so it could be "Gangsta Gangsta" indeed.
      Too bad Eazy E and his Mac-11 have gone on to glory (complete with whores)

  48. ttommyunger

    On the bright side (if there really can be one here), it is my experience that the more guns are present, the more polite the discourse. Anyone who has ever visited a gun store (all clerks openly pack in Georgia) or firing range knows what I'm talking about.

    1. mayor_quimby

      That is true, everybody is friendly at the gun show, but still, I think the concentration won't be quite high enough in a gallery to ensure nobody acts a fool.
      But it will be a job creating program, plenty of money to be made in Kevlar podiums, so…. hoorray????

    And when put my lunch in the break room fridge, I always draw a crosshairs on it, just so they think twice before messin' with it.

  50. Generation[redacted]

    I can't tell you how many times I've had to shoot my way to the office break room to get the last doughnut. Even when it's a little blood-spattered, those Krispy Cremes are mmm mmm good!
