Homophobic Anti-Robot Bachmann Thugs Bully Gay Iowa Robot

Another bad day for Strong Sad.It was another day of thuggery on the Iowa campaign trail as Michele Bachmann’s remaining followers mercilessly booed and taunted a sad gay robot. The pudgy homosexual android just wanted to make a case for itself, but the slob wingnuts just chanted BOOOOO because that’s how they “cure homosexuality.” Speaking of pudgy gay robots, has anyone seen Marcus Bachmann lately?

In many ways, this is the precious story of Christmas all over again: The sad outsider only wants shelter from the Iowa cold, and also to heckle a demon (Michele Bachmann), but there’s “no room at the sports bar” for this mother of god:

Here’s some more heartwarming Gay Iowa Robot video, from outside the manger:

Hark the herald angels sing, glory to our robot king, peace on Earth, good will towards gays, God gave Marcus Bachmann AIDS. [NY Daily News]

    imagine the vitriol if he was a Gay Robot Soldier.

    • Guppy

      If the drone the Iranians captured turned out to be gay, would they stone it?

    • Walkinwiddaking

      I vision a wide-eyed Michelle Bachman thanking the Gay Robot Soldier for their servicing her husband.

    Dear Crazy Eyes Supporters:

    You only out yourselves when you make Hatred your Number One campaign tactic.

    And to Ol' Crazy Eyes herself: you wanna run a campaign based on hatred and disunion, go campaign in Uganda or Zimbabwe or North Korea or Somalia, someplace where you can have all the AK-47-mandated power you crave.

    • Loaded_Pants

      Not just one L but most of the GOP candidates. Paul, Perry, Gingrich–they all seem to think that if they became Prez, they could do whatever the fuck they want, which is exactly how dictators think.

      • OneDollarJuana

        And act, if the last prez was any example.

  • Barb

    Don we now our gay apparel. Yes, I am talking to you Marcus.

  • V572 the Merciless

    Which insane legislator or legislature wanted an exemption from an anti-bullying law if their religion required them beat up homos?

    • http://gratuity.wordpress.com/ Gratuitous World

      Michigan.

      also, these people.

      and bullies.

      • V572 the Merciless

        Seems fair. The Michigan legislature should definitely spend its time deciding how to legalize bullying instead of trying to create jobs, help Detroit, or clean up past environmental messes. It's a matter of priorities.

    • bumfug

      Wait a minute – isn't beating up homos part of Sharia Law?

      • http://zvibleindmeis.tumblr.com/ Spurning Beer

        Male anal rape is an accepted military strategy to humiliate enemies, but it is Sharia case law, not statutory law.

      • Negropolis

        Well, Michigan is under Sharia Law, after all, according to the wingnuts (and The Simpsons), so it all makes so much sense, now, on (false) context

    • Guppy

      All of them, Katie.

  • Pragmatist2

    What would they do if he was dressed in swaddling clothes?

    • flamingpdog

      They would have welcomed him with open arms if he had been wearing a diaper at a rally in Louisiana.

      • MzNicky
        • Geminisunmars

          Jaysuss – I've seen that every year for some years now, and I'm always taken unawares by the endiing.

        • flamingpdog

          I was not expecting that ending. Keep that one around for Easter.

          • Isyaignert

            Like one of the comments on YouTube said – "Don't worry, he'll be okay in a couple of days."

    Why didn't Marcus jump in and try to reprogram the homobot?

    I know this isn't a popular thing to say, but I believe robots are unnatural. Sorry, it was just the way I was raised.

    • http://oliphantparts.org/ natoslug

      I don't believe that robot was really gay. With that body shape, the Gay Iowa Robot should've been wearing flannel and a beard.

    • http://gratuity.wordpress.com/ Gratuitous World

      What's next? Robots marrying their pets?

      • Geminisunmars

        Robots ba-doink-a-doinking their pets.

    • Chichikovovich

      I think that's very narrow minded of you. We should be accepting of those among us who happen to be robots, so long as they never act on their robosexual desires.

      • tessiee

        "their robosexual desires"

        It's one thing to be roBosexual, and quite another to be roMosexual.
        But that's just the way Robot Jesus programmed them.

        • Chichikovovich

          Romosexual? Is that where you make sexytime with the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys?
          (As in: "Jessica Simpson used to be a romosexual, but then she dumped him. Or he dumped her. Whatever – some dumping took place.")

          • DaRooster

            For Romo… the dumping takes place on the field.

      Okay, but if physicists are calling the Higgs-Boson "the God Particle," that proves doG exists and it's okay to hate gays.

      • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

        'Scusies, but the sciguy writer Leon Lederman wanted to call his book about the Higgs the Goddamn Particle 'cause they couldn't find the goddamn thing. His editor, however, said no. Ergogo, from a science paradigm:

    Not that I care about Andrew Sulllivan but just saw the article where he retracted his support of Paul-still not agreeing he is a racist but sort of saying he is responsible for the newsletters. Next week, I expect Sullivan to say Paull is a racist.

    • V572 the Merciless

      At least Sully was right about the Iraq W…no, wait….

  • flamingpdog

    With that outfit? I don't know if they were unhappy that he was a gay robot or a gay porn robot.

    • Geminisunmars

      I thought they were unhappy that he was a poorly attired gay robot – isn't that some sort of oxymoron?

    • http://zvibleindmeis.tumblr.com/ Spurning Beer

      The robot's gay porn name is Rod Piston.

  • flamingpdog

    And what the virgin mother fucking hell is Che1y doing campaigning on the eve of the birfday of her LORD AND SAVIOR™???? Maybe that's really Robot Bachmann there?

      Secretly, Marcus would have loved the glitter bomb. After it went off, he'd start dancing in the rain of glitter.

    • http://zvibleindmeis.tumblr.com/ Spurning Beer

      Slightly OT, did you see Mitt's snide wisecrack to a reporter who asked what he would wish for President Obama? "A permanent vacation," he quipped.

      Imagine any reporter you want asking Barack the same question. See if you can imagine him being nasty and petty like that.

      Call Barack morally weak or spineless, but he is a gentleman. Unlike these Christian wannabes.

    Well, Happy Darwinmus to all 15 or so Wonketeers so far that haz nothing better to do on this day than lurk or just happen to get lucky and log onto teh Wonkette around the time a new post comes up on the board. Hopefully by the time I finish writing this I won't face the embarassment of three consecutive comments, but I just had to tell you I luvs ya all, ya keep me from getting too cranky and punchy holes in my refrigerator box when the stoopid gets almost too much to bear, and I hope you all live to be a hundred (and for some of us, that isn't all that far off).

    I'd post some hilarious Darwinus poetry, but I have only scienterrific talents, not the poetic kind. (I actually got through college without taking a single English course because I was able to opt out because of my English Advanced Placement scores.) And to those of you who don't worship Chas Darwin or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Wonderful Winter Solstice, Kwality Kwanzaa, or the celebration of whatever imaginary friend you bow down to.

      Wonkette is how I procrastinate. Thank g-ddess there was a new post. And thank you for your comment, FlamingP. Wonketteers have helped me laugh at this bizarro world many a time. Now I'd better go get those walks shoveled before the phambly starts arriving. (Just kidding – let them struggle through the drifts if they want their frigging presents.) And merry Krishnamas to all, and to all lots of light.

    • Loaded_Pants

      We finished with shopping today (we ran over only one old lady with our shopping cart this year). The tree is still naked because the cat has been fucking with it since we put it up, so we were just seeing what damage she'd do to it first. Finally decided: Fuck it, we'll just put the lights on it but not the ornaments (we have a shitload of ornaments).

      Having over three orphans for dinner tomorrow. One's a Brit with a wicked sense of humor so I can't wait to ask her her opinions about…well, hell…anything. The wine will be plenty. So I'm looking forward to the goose & my post-dinner black out. Monday morning, I'll wake up, once again, to the living nightmare that's now America.

    O/T, but the Newtster failed to qualify for the Virginia super-Tuesday primary. So did Rick Perry. Not enough signatures on the petitions to qualify, haw haw haw! Newt blames "the system." Face it, Salamander, they're just not that into you.

      Newt: "It's a failed system."

    So, for those of you following the political clownshow, because you need a bit of misanthropy this Christmas, apparently both Perry and Gingrich have been disqualfiied from Virginia's primary, for not having enough signatures, on account of being too amateur-hour to observe the "submit at least 150% of the required signatures, since some will be thrown out" rule of thumb.

    Gingrich's campaign director has furiously attacked Virginia's ballot rules, because it's obviously Virginia's fault, and not Gingrich's amateurish campaign, and has promised to conduct a write-in campaign. Oh, and also, Virginia state law prohibits write-in candidates in primaries. Which is probably something a "campaign director" should be aware of, I think.
