NUTTER FOR PRESIDENT  5:30 pm January 13, 2012

Philadelphia Mayor Tells Citizens to Stop Being ‘Idiots and A**holes’

by Liz Colville

"#&$@#*&$!"

Mayor Michael Nutter, Democrat of Philadelphia, likes to swear, but he only really swears about people who deserve it, nor does he ever apologize for his remarks, and he is therefore kind of great and should run for president. In his latest viral video attempt, Nutter made some remarks about a Tuesday shooting that killed three teens, uttering a basic truth about people who shoot people: they are “idiots and assholes.” Video evidence forthwith.

Nutter is fond of this word. He called some other gun-toting idiots from a rec center shooting incident last summer “complete assholes,” “complete” because, he argues, shooting people indoors is even more of a dick move than shooting someone out your car window.

The mayor also warned Phillies fans not to be “jackasses” following the team’s 2008 World Series win, and when the Philly police nabbed a serial killer suspect last summer, Nutter proclaimed, “We got the motherf—er!”

Says a Nutter spokesperson of Thursday’s comment: “He said what he said. He was clear about it, and he meant it. He said what everybody else was thinking…On rare occasions, the mayor will assume a somewhat earthy tone…It is never an accident. He knows what he’s saying and why.”

Of a dying breed, this one. [Philadelphia Inquirer]

That's okay, I'm in shock.

Come here a minute January 13, 2012 at 7:49 pm

As a Washington Capitals and Nationals fan, I can vouch for the complete assholeosity and motherfuckery of any and all Philly fans.

Also, too, what the hell is an "a**hole" or a "motherf—er"? These terms are not Wonkette-friendly.

Dudleydidwrong January 13, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Shhhh! Had to clean up the language for the little Philly readers.

But I do applaud the mayor's earthy honesty. Must have taken elocution lessons from the Dick, Cheney, however.

sunmusing January 13, 2012 at 8:48 pm

In Denver…… we now have to say "fudge you". Or Gal durn. I'm not going to jinx Saturday with a slip of the tongue.

flamingpdog January 13, 2012 at 11:22 pm

Reeeally? I'm in the Denver area, too, and I'm a Warshington Deadskins fan. BWA HA HA HA HA!!!

KenLayIsAlive January 13, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Broncos fan in Brooklyn. Grew up in Denver, among other places.

After watching us flop for the last decade or so, that run in overtime was like … soul cleansing.

And Tebow-shmebow. This team is about Champ Bailey and Elvis Dumervil. Tebow needs to get over himself and his lord.

sunmusing January 14, 2012 at 1:13 am

You are right about Timmeh. I think a few lessons in the off season from St. John Elbow, and a little coaching in MEDIA relations, and I think the kid will be just fine ……….I hope and pray. I'm still a little weepy from John's retirement.

KenLayIsAlive January 14, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Totally.

Warning – Long personal story to follow: I spent my whole childhood watching them go to… and lose.. super bowls with my family. I sort of drifted away from my folks and then they won that superbowl and I called them and it totally was just the little spark that started us talking again. I've got tons of weird emotional stuff wrapped up with Elway and those teams. So great though.

I appreciate that some people think sports are like the new religion, like an opiate, and a money waster, and stupid, and they kind of are (since, like evrything else since the 1980's they've been completely corporatized) , but they're also a fundamental part of the human experience. Been around forever. They pit the best against the best in a competition. They release the desires of some of the worst parts of human nature in a completely harmless way. Sports, or war? Sports, or gangs? Sports, or street fights? And they really can mean a lot to people too.

Anyhoooooooooooooo.

GO BRONCOS!

..when the Philly police nabbed a serial killer suspect last summer, Nutter proclaimed, “We got the motherf—er!”

Samuel L Jackson is the Mayor of Philadelphia?

The serial killer was a motherfucking snake on a motherfucking plane?

Or, more precisely, the careless use of them.

smokefillednewyear January 13, 2012 at 5:36 pm

From now on, Nutter should just substitute "asshole" for "citizen".

Another spokesperson said that later that night, Nutter was heard to whisper words "of a dusky quality" in his wife's ear.

Is earthy like urban?

Are you in VA?

No, NV. Same idiots and assholes, different accent.

True dat. But what I should have asked is: "Are you a member of VA's General Aseembly?"

Ben Cisco January 16, 2012 at 2:35 pm

They're dry assholes then?

Barb January 13, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Lol, warning Philly fans not to be "jackasses" is like making Courtney Love in charge of Olympic drug testing.

faster_kittycat January 13, 2012 at 5:52 pm

We do our best. :-)

But to be fair, the real jackasses are from South Jersey. You have no idea.

Barb January 13, 2012 at 6:35 pm

I have a complete understanding of what you are saying. I lived in Delaware for 25 years and I am a big Philadelphia sports fan, even though I live in Albuquerque now. I have last night's Flyer's game on DVR and I am going to whoop it up tonight.

The South Jersey jackasses are REALLY bad.

faster_kittycat January 13, 2012 at 6:39 pm

One state over from ya–in dreadful Arizona. My dad still goes to Flyers games–I was almost named 'Kate' for fuck's sake. I actually pay for Sunday Ticket to watch Eagles games.. My husband (practically–we've lived together for 11 years) thinks I'm nuts. He hates sports. These past few weeks until the Iggles crapped out of playoff contention, it's been Skyrim vs. Eagles for control of the TV.

Barb January 13, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Smoke, both of my girls are pregnant with boys and I am hoping that one of them name their son, Kimmo (Flyer's player) It's not going to happen, lol.
When I see Lauren-Kate singing God Bless America, I cry.

My husband loves sports and I love sports and I would be thrilled to see your dad at a Flyer's game one of these days.

Gleep January 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm

you know after 10 years of reading wonkette you've finally made me reply to something- we aren't jackasses- that term really fits those dipshits from slower Delaware better- we can't help it if every idiot from south Philly moved across the the Walt as soon as they made a few bucks….

tessiee January 14, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Isn't Philly the town where the fans *booed Santa Claus* and the hockey stadium has *its own jail*?

My apologies if I've got that wrong, although it actually is kinda cool.

Barb January 14, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Don't come here and start rumors please. They didn't "boo" Santa. The pelted him with D cell batteries that were a part of a stadium giveaway. Booing him would just be wrong, LOL : )

smokefillednewyear January 14, 2012 at 6:42 pm

The Vet used to have its own court for unruly fans (the bulk of which were probably 700 level derelicts). I thought they threw snowballs at Santa and the batteries were a different incident? Oh who knows/cares… The Vet was an awful place to watch any sport–I remember bringing binoculars and my cousin listening to the broadcast on local radio with a walkman..

I was taking Amtrak from Phila to DC in October of 2008. Who should be in my car but Mayor Nutter. Coach class, non-Acela, no special seating at all. Made me happy all over again to have voted for him.

He just loves the First Amendment more.

He seems to be the perfect representative for Philadelphia. You do understand that the nickname "City of Brotherly Love" is completely ironic, right?

"You do understand that the nickname "City of Brotherly Love" is completely ironic, right?"

I'm still puzzling over Atlanta calling itself "The City Too Busy to Hate". I can only assume that they have poor time management skills.

Nutter once held a job as a fluffer in the Philly porn industry.

littlebigdaddy January 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Don't tell me, let me guess…they specialize in necrophilia and coprophilia?

flamingpdog January 15, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Sorry, the Philly porn industry has a big sign on its front door that says, "Sorry, we don't serve Necros".

tessiee January 14, 2012 at 11:59 pm

So, the director was heard to say, "where is my fluffer, Nutter?"

JustPixelz January 13, 2012 at 5:57 pm

No flag pin. And isn't he supposed to say "And God bless the United States of America" after few sentences?

and, "Support our troops!."

RebelCountess January 13, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Here in Rochester, New York, Councilman McFadden (African-American) said something
similar:

"The police can't stop stupid."

Jukesgrrl January 13, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Or as policeman once said to my brother — who had some use a battering ram on his front door when he was HOME — "Crime doesn't have any IQ."

Beowoof January 14, 2012 at 10:31 pm

As evideneced by the number of Greece Police now in jail. Loved it when they sent the chief off to join the officers he tried to cover up for. And then his son went to jail for passing info to a drug dealer on who reported him. (For you out of towners Greece is Rochester's largest suburb).

Adam McFadden is an interesting case also, he was hauled into jail from the East side for getting the way of cops doing their work.

Since you said "bring it", I vote that the debate be moderated by Patrick Warburton a/k/a Joe Swanson.

can we vote for "Don't Act Like idiots And Assholes" as a replacement for In God We Trust? makes more sense and those truly are words to live by.

THESE MOTHERFUCKERS SHOULD BE GIVEN MEDALS FOR LIVING IN INHUMANE CONDITIONS…

FakaktaSouth January 14, 2012 at 1:42 pm

As an unfortunate chronic swearer (I'm trying so hard to stop, but its even outlived smoking as a habit for me) I like this guy's style. He didn't say THESE GUYS ARE ASSHOLES!!! He said it in the "calm, natural, this is so obvious – these people are idiots and assholes and we all know it" way, with a big ol derisive face. I can dig it.

Also, there was a segment on The Maddow last night where she was talking about NOAH, and did the thing where she orates a brilliant thesis paper basically and starts with a thing in everyday life and then brings it around to how actual government policy is involved. ANYway, she did this with the "two realities" we have in this country that I and MANY of my co-whatthefuckers around here talk about a lot – you know the one where Republicans talk about how Obama has grown government in spite of the reality of his plans to reduce the number of agencies, or how Dems are always soft on crime (what up Haley Barbour, WHO killed Osama?). The segment ends with her talking to Ezra Klein (love) and it is a powerful convo that made me cry over my ipod, and if you didn't catch it, you should – I was doing the church call and respond thing while they were talking, HMmhum. Yes, that's right. Amen Rachel…It's worth a watch, truly. I love smart people. Sorry about the commercial at the beginning.

For the briefest of moments I thought you said Obscenity is the *crotch* of inarticulate fuckers." which in its own warped way works as well.

Don't you mean Sarah Palin?

tessiee January 15, 2012 at 12:04 am

An easy mistake to make, but no. Sarah Palin IS an inarticulate fucker.

I am to think that most of you who are saying this man is a great mayor, solely because he cusses, do not live in the city he is the mayor of. He lacks and he lacks a lot. He made promises that he has yet to even talk about and has done more damage to the city with his 'bad ass attitude" no one wants to build jobs here, no new companies will even look at our plentiful real estate because of him being our mayor. Also stating the obvious does not make one a presidential candidate.

Mayor Nutter for VP in 2012; President in 2016 and 2020.

Nutts to this!

Good advice.

Hey Barb, I can remember Gene Hart introducing Kate Smith in person way back when at the Spectrum… He would re-tell the story with tears in his eyes. I loves me some Bobby Clarke…

Only God saves more than Parent!

Wonderful wishes to you and your girls.

My dad has a puck signed by Bernie that he's had since the 70's–one of his most prized possessions.

Barb January 13, 2012 at 11:00 pm

You should have seen me when they were introducing the players during the alumni game. I was 5'10" of solid goosebumps.

@faster_kittykat
In the early '90s I was thrift store shopping in Philly and came across a "God Bless The Flyers" album for 25 cents. I gave it to my dad as a present and he was floored– "where did you find this?!"

under_score January 13, 2012 at 8:42 pm

OMG! Flyers fans represent!! I dressed as Bernie Parent one halloween (PS I'm of the female persuasion) And my family still has Eagles season tix. This season was the suck

BUT, I am a proud South Jerseyan, so I suppose you won't talk to me any more (snif)

(edit to add, you are right about the accent, I've lost mine)

Barb January 13, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Smoke, I got 2 autographs from Roger Neilson right before he died. Pause to clear lump in throat. I sent him a get well card and he wrote back and sent pictures.

Barb January 13, 2012 at 9:08 pm

Under_Score, welcome to the conversation, Sweetie!
I used to go to most of the Iggle games, way more Philly games and EVERY Flyers game.
I would go to the Halloween clearance sales and buy up all the orange Christmas-type lights and decorate the outside of my house during the playoffs. Good times!

flamingpdog January 13, 2012 at 11:27 pm

Oh my, I'd always pictured you as shorter than me. Now I'm really in love!

Barb January 14, 2012 at 12:14 am

Nope, I am 5'10". How tall are you?

(my cat just typed that. I guess she wanted to say hi!)

What a treasure.. Truly a great–he really changed the game.

flamingpdog January 14, 2012 at 1:37 am

*Slaps self – "Don't you dare say, 'Flaccid or erect?' to Barb"!"*

5' 6" when I stand straight and stretch out my vertebral column. But the woman I'm waiting for her husband to die is 6' 1 or 2" tall. When we used to hug, my face landed in a very nice spot.

Barb January 14, 2012 at 3:24 am

My father was 6' 9". I remember that he had to tilt his head to get through a doorway.

Barb January 14, 2012 at 3:29 am

I'm so excited to have Smokefillednewyear, Under_score, and Faster_kittycat as my new bitches. Guys, I'd love to see ya'll post more and mix it up with us, please. Just jump in anywhere and tell us what's on your minds, please.

As for my "old" bitches, seriously, it's me and not you. I will refund the rent when I get the security deposit back and you can take any of the condiments in the fridge, except for the mustard. I have new friends who love a Philly soft pretzel.

Dibs on the 6 year old horseradish

sunmusing January 15, 2012 at 11:27 am

Yeah, the sunday blahs after a savage loss. I really didn't hold out much hope for a win OR a miracle. I think a good off season, and we are back in the playoffs with the kid. I like to think of the NFL as a top of the line UNION. I think the kid will be a great football leader or a mediocre preacher. Now….My granddaddy was a Preacher, and not really good at football. On to next year, thank goodness for the Wonkette.

smokefillednewyear January 15, 2012 at 9:24 pm

That was beautiful.
