Jan Brewer Expecting Treat Now for Shaking Finger at Barack Obama


Boy oh boy is Arizona governor Jan Brewer ever so lucky that Barack Obama came to visit her state — his visit has already started to generate new revenue! No no, not for Arizona or anything, no, ha ha. It’s revenue for Jan Brewer, America’s neediest governor, which she is collecting via some tragic website that asserts her right to a monetary reward in exchange for performing the valuable service of yelling at the President like a deranged twit in view of a few news photographers. Who says it’s getting hard to make a buck in America these days?

This is why Jan Brewer thinks she deserves your money, per the text of the “JAN PAC” website:


I need your help!

When I met President Obama this week, I really wasn’t pointing at him. I was telling him, “You have ONE more year!” The President needs to be reminded that he is the President of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC and not a KING lording over state governors.

While I wanted to talk to him about jobs, our economy and visiting our border, President Obama criticized my book, Scorpions for Breakfast, and then walked away from me.

We deserve results over rhetoric, but this is a President who had the audacity to sue me and Arizona in my efforts to protect our country from illegal immigration!

Yes, “results over rhetoric” cries Jan Brewer! All that Jan Brewer deserves is a paper sack of dog poop on her desk every morning. [JAN PAC]

  1. PuckStopsHere

    If she wants "a treat" she ought to stick that finger if hers up her ass, extract it and suck it clean. That would be a good treat for her.

  2. memzilla

    A Flash Gordon-inspired "De-Crazy-ing Ray" beam projector will not work in Arizona. Maybe it's the heat, maybe it's the skull thickness, maybe it's the skin color — but it just ain't gonna work.

    1. SorosBot

      Considering that Brewer's skin appears to be made of leather, it would be interesting to see what happens to it if she ever gets it wet.

      1. MissTaken

        Just think: if she starred in a remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre they wouldn't have to hire a makeup artist. Austerity!

        1. SorosBot

          Instead of a bunch of horny teenagers, the victims would all be a bunch of Mexican immigrants, and Leatherface would run after them screaming, "Anchor babies! Anchor babies!"

    2. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

      See, typical liberal hypocrisy. Libruls all whine that some cop shooting a shirt is an assassination threat against The One, but a direct wish for Jan Brewer's death is laughed off and rewarded with pee points. Oh, sure, you may claim you were "joking," but as we all know what you really meant, your sick fascination with murdering your enemies is obvious.

      (Think I'll pass the audition for WorldNetDaily?)

      1. BearNoLike

        So Loughner got confused and hit the wrong person, then. You're probably wrong about that though, because Brewer lacks the constitution…

  3. MaxNeanderthal

    Looks like yellow nylon fright wigs and 80's shoulder pads are IN in the wild, wild, west….

  4. PsycWench

    Sorry, JB. Obama might have only one year left, IF it weren't for the heroic efforts of Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum.

    1. Fare la Volpe

      Don't leave out the noble contributions of Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Tim Pawle-zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

      1. PsycWench

        How could I have forgotten Sarah Palin and Donal Trump, who were "mental candidates" in more ways than one.

  5. SexySmurf

    When I met President Obama this week, I really wasn’t pointing at him. I was telling him, "Pull my finger!"

    1. MaxNeanderthal

      Good point. How come they allowed a deranged sociopath within this kind of range of POTUS? Perhaps she comes on the "sad" list at Secret Service HQ, not the "bad" list. (It's a fucking racing certainty she's on the "mad" list…)

    2. 40 or 50 % McShineys

      Those clacking dentures could have easily snapped out of their leather container and bitten the president!

    Here let me fix this for her.

    Friends Who May or May not Have Read Scorpions for Breakfast.

    I Jan Brewer, author of Scorpions for Breakfast, need your help!

    When I, the author of Scorpions for Breakfast, met President Obama, who has yet to read Scorpions for Breakfast, this week, I really wasn’t pointing at him talking about Scorpions for Breakfast. I was telling him, “You have ONE more year!” and should by a copy of Scorpions for Breakfast at my web site Scorpions for The President, who has yet to read Scorpions for Breakfast, needs to be reminded of Scorpions for Breakfast, and that he is the President of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC that should read Scorpions for Breakfast and not a KING who hasn't read Scorpions for Breakfast lording over state governors who may or may not have read Scorpions for Breakfast.

    1. Baconzgood

      While I wanted to talk to him about jobs, Scorpions for Breakfast, our economy, Scorpions for Breakfast, and visiting our border while reading Scorpions for Breakfast, President Obama criticized my book, Scorpions for Breakfast which he didn't read, and then walked away from me unwilling to talk about Scorpions for Breakfast anymore.

      We deserve results, like buying Scorpions for Breakfast over rhetoric about not reading Scorpions for Breakfast , but this is a President who didn't read Scorpions for Breakfast,, had the audacity to sue me, author of Scorpions for Breakfast, and Arizona, where the writer of Scorpions for Breakfast lives, in my efforts to protect our country from the Scorpions for Breakfast that is illegal immigration!

      Scorpions for Breakfast Scorpions for Breakfast,

      Jan, Author of Scorpions for Breakfast, Brewer.

      .P.S. Scorpions for Breakfast

      1. Sharkey

        It's all just a big misunderstanding. She just wants a good breakfast for a change, and she's willing to trade perfectly suitable scorpions for it.

        1. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

          That reminds me of the time I traded a perfectly good sausage for a seagull.

          Ever since, I have regretted taking a tern for the wurst.

        1. Baconzgood

          Fuck! You're right. I should have mentioned Scorpions for Breakfast before people posted a reply.

      2. CapnFatback

        I believe there's more subtext there, just beneath, if you scrape the scum away:

        Fellow whites,

        I need your help!

        When I met President Oblacka this week, I really wasn’t pointing at him. I was telling him, “You should count as only 3/5 of a person!” The President needs to be reminded that he is the President of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC and not an African KING drive-by shooting state governors.

        While I wanted to talk to him about gold chains, fried chicken and visiting the Golden Corral, that uppity negro criticized my book, Mexicans for Breakfast, and then moonwalked away from me.

        We deserve the goddamned world because of our smooth, creamy white skin, but this boy is a jive turkey who had the audacity to sue me and Arizona in my efforts to protect our country from wetbacks raping our daughters and spicing up our eggs with their sinister picante!

          1. Crank_Tango

            you loony libs can laugh all you want, but you've obviously never had the shits that Scorpions for Breakfast result in.

          2. Rotundo_

            When you shine a black light in the bowl does it glow like scorps do when they're shined with it?

  7. Mumbletypeg

    Does anyone really like this woman? That's a news colloquium topic I'd be willing to hear reporters etc, weigh in on. Brewer would be invited to listen in too if so inclined.

      1. RavenRant

        The people who pay her to do what they tell her love her. Or at least find her leathery carcass useful.

        Even they might choke on the word "love" in reference to Gov. Lies-a-Lot.

    1. MilwaukeeKent

      Does she suppress brown people? Including those whose families have lived in the state dating back to the Spanish land grants? Yes, therefore, 2nd generation Polish-American retirees (from places like Berwyn, Illinois) love her. That sucks.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Word. She shouldn't have been allowed within 100 feet of him. The footage of her clawing and screaming at him, from a distant spot on the tarmac, held back by bodyguards, would have been priceless.

    2. Negropolis


      Stop giving them an audience. Make them work for the disrespect they show your office. And, when they diss you for not meeting with them, remember this moment, and then rightfully weigh which is worse. You lose in their eyes either way, so win something for yourself and your supporters for once when it comes to optics.

    3. JimNauseam

      Good point, but there's something to be said for the visual contrast. It's like posing a Ferrari next to a pile of dogshit.

  8. starfanglednut

    Oh, fuck her. She would never,ever, ever treat a white President with such disrespect, never mind ask for money because of it. Yes, you assholes, a BLACK man is PRESIDENT! Get fucking over it! God, this pisses me off.

    That woman needs a "free speech zone" all to herself.

    1. Loaded_Pants

      Brewer's "free speech zone" should be similar to a chicken coop in which she's screaming racist insults & smearing her face with her own feces. It would even keep the weasels away.

    2. RavenRant

      If a black man or woman, in any capacity, did this to W or Cheney, he/she would have been face down on the pavement, being handcuffed.

    3. BearNoLike

      Haha that's what I totes said when I saw that. Jan Brewer represents the most racist reactionary body language of any pro-white-sheet-hoodie race-war-mongering bigot since American History X. The entitlement imagery of that leather-faced cracker denigrating the black guy (heh, her very own POTUS, apparently) is so infuriating and disappointing.

      Here's hoping she gets LA Times coverage logging in to MyFamilyBenefits.

      1. RavenRant

        Totally aside from the inexcusable finger an inch from his face, check out how wide open that hideous, gaping maw is. It looks like she's about to unhinge her reptilian jaw to try to swallow him.

  9. OneYieldRegular

    I believe Joe Wilson already tried this tiresome "I've been rude to the President – give me money!" schtick.

    1. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

      Yes, and profited handsomely from it. Hell, Obama should see if he can get in on the action…

  10. anniegetyerfun

    She DOES realize the the lawsuit over immigration isn't a civil lawsuit filed personally by the President against her, right? Department of Justice, Constitution, all that?

    1. BerkeleyBear

      Nope. She's also convinced she is going to single-handedly turn things around in Arizona (or already has), all evidence of her fuck ups notwithstanding.

      1. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

        More than that–it's an uppity Near assaulting a white lady. Many will happily believe that there should be consequences.

    2. comrad_darkness

      No, she's a republican governor and by the requirements of her party for that post hasn't a fucking clue how government works.

    3. OneYieldRegular

      Not a chance. All she knows is to react, like a planarian oriented towards some vague light source.

  11. paris biltong

    He's president of the Federal Republic of Germany? I didn't know that and thought he didn't even speak German.

    1. RavenRant

      Good. It will be a flashing neon sign advertising what despicable, hateful, racist sociopaths they all are.

      Let her fire up the base. Anyone outside of the drooling 25% is going to be repelled.

  12. sarah_connor

    WHEREAS, you best read Scorpions for Breakfast or I'll eat you and your little dog too, for breakfast!

  13. SorosBot

    "We deserve results over rhetoric, but this is a President who had the audacity to sue me and Arizona in my efforts to protect our country from illegal immigration"

    Yes, of course he had the "audacity" (another attempted code word for "uppity"?) to sue you, because it's the justice department's job to sue states when they pass blatantly unconstitutional laws. Even forgetting about the violation of the 14th Amendment, immigration is a purely federal matter and it is in fact illegal for states to have immigration laws.

  14. coolhandnuke

    Jan Brewer:"We have rules and laws and things like that in this state and you landed your fancy plane on the runway, my runway, that has big old letters on it saying Whites Only. Did you read my book the book I wrote and did you…I wrote it and read it my book I did."

  15. widestanceshakedown

    And without her gnarly old digit held up, how else was a colored man to know how many years he had left?

  16. prommie

    I'm gonna invite these two kids to come over to my house and drink a beer with me on the patio. Then I will grab her arms and hold her while Barack pounds the shit out of her, which will take some doing, she is totally full of shit.

  17. comrad_darkness

    If he were an overlord, she'd be in gitmo now.

    What a dumb, dissembling republican bitch. But I repeat myself.

  18. ElPinche

    That desiccated leather hate bag wasn't pointing her "finger, " she was absorbing moisture from the air.

  19. elviouslyqueer

    Dear Jan:

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I was having a hard time hearing you over all those dog whistles.


    President Barack Obama

  20. prommie

    Seems that the Insane Wing of the GOP have all adopted the methods of Buttmunch Douchebag Asswipe Fuckface James OKeefe in order to raise funds. They set up some kind of dramatic confrontation with the evil liberals or the Jackbooted Government Thugs, and then use the drama to solicit donations. See, also, Paul, Rand, and Paul, Doctor Ron, et al.

  21. DaRooster

    "All that Jan Brewer deserves is a paper sack of dog poop on her desk every morning."

    So Scorpions for Breakfast and Dog Poop for Lunch?

  22. SoBeach

    Laugh it up, but remember: Gingrich pushed for impeachment and shut down the federal government because he thought Clinton dissed him on Air Force One.

    Does B.O. really want to risk the wrath of the Governor of Arizona?

    Sounds like she's already all kinds of mad about this. Maybe an apology is in order…

    1. RavenRant

      SoBeach, I upfisted you before I read your comment.

      If that comment is not 100% snark 'n' sarcasm, I take it back. And, also, GTFO.

      Otherwise, carry on.

    2. Dudleydidwrong

      Maybe SoBeach is afraid that Arizona General Joe Arpaio wll launch is army of pink-pantied orcs on Washington.

    3. ElPinche

      B.O. shoulda kicked her in her dried up fossilized cunt. But instead, I think he'll probably apologize and the congressional dems will send her complimentary crates of weapons-grade Oil of Olay .

      1. RavenRant

        I'm going way out on a limb here and guessing we won't see O apologizing to anymore Repugs until after the election. And hopefully not even then.

  23. prommie

    Beat on the brat, beat on the brat, beat on the brat with a baseball bat, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeahhhh.

  25. GunToting[Redacted]

    If the secret service was really on top of things, Jan would be one of her beloved "headless bodies" out in the desert.

    1. widestanceshakedown

      I think her body would love to be free of that husk it has to carry around, just as her head would love finding a younger body to re-attach itself to.

    1. Tundra Grifter

      The worst public speaking voice just has to be Off-the-Mark Levin.

      I keep expecting him to burst out with "Aflac! AFLAC!"

  26. memzilla

    If there's such a thing as "malpractice" insurance, Jan Brewer is why someone needs to invent "malgovernance" insurance.

  27. MissTaken

    Does anyone remember the name of Brewer's book? I don't think she's mentioned it in the last 2.5 seconds.

  28. CapnFatback

    You gotta admire her spirit. Almost everyone believes that her Goat Boy was one of the worst-ever SNL characters, but there she was in full costume, performing for President Obama on the tarmac.

  29. soeoho

    Barack shoulda learned that Angela Merkel vulcan death grip from his predecessor. Sorry to bring W up but he was such a hoot !

    1. Rotundo_

      She doesn't go all jezussy all the time, just when pandering. Rexella would be making the sale constantly.

  30. kissawookiee

    Come ON, Jan; the proper syntax for that particular dog whistle is "BOY KING." Illiterate twat.

    1. RavenRant

      For those wingnuts self-aware enough to realize that calling a black man "boy" is clearly racist, the term "manchild" is substituted. So subtle. So clever.

      It's one of Limbaugh's favorite terms for the President.

    I need your help!

    When I met President Obama this week, I really wasn’t pointing at him. I was trying to cast some mummy-based curse-magic on him. I hissed “Ognahssshokala!” The President needs to be reminded that he is the President of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC and not a SUN GOD MUMMY KING that has his own pyramid tomb and army of scarab beetles.

    While I wanted to talk to him about jobs, our economy and visiting our border, my voicebox had been removed when I was interred in my tomb, along with my other organs. President Obama criticized my papyrus recipe scrolls, Scorpions for Breakfast, and then walked away from me.

    Please send me money or fresh bandages, I am drying out!

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Well, now the image of Obama in one of those Egyptian loincloths is permanently lodged in my brain. Thank you.

      No, really. Thank you.

    Oh, yeah, teh nigra.

  35. fartknocker

    Interesting photo array of GED Jan Brewer before she stuck her finger in the President's face. He's approaching in a dignified manner and this nasty old hag looks like she's monkey at the Phoenix zoo about to sling crap:

    Stay classy Jan. She's doing nothing but pandering to the old folks in Sun City and the Tea Tards. What she doesn't understand is her state is no longer a decent place to live. Under her leadership they are ranked in the bottom 10 states for education. The GOP just brought back former Senator Pearce (who was recalled by a 12 point margin) to serve as their number 2 person. The state electorate currently polling for Ron Paul.

    Barry Goldwater would have bitch slapped her if he was alive.

    1. Bluestatelibel

      It looks like she's flirting with Obama, and then he says he wouldn't touch her with a 10-foot pole, and then she starts wagging her finger in his face, screeching at him they'll she get him and his dog Bo too.

    1. Loaded_Pants

      The green night creme really does wonders. I think I saw an ad for it in the latest issue of Vogue. It wouldn't surprise me if Wintour uses it.

  36. Thurman Munster IV

    I'm sure the trolls here from Red State see a perfectly normal picture of Jan Brewer with one of her flying monkeys.

  37. tealsheart

    How did you guess… She fills that paper sack of dog poop herself – from within, still she's full of it.

  38. Antispandex

    Well, as much as Frau Brewer (Blucher?), and the rest of the Teapublicans, seem to hate the bad ecomomy, it appears they hate the foreign folk worse. If they looked at the bright side they would see that the stinky economy is slowing (or even reversing in some areas) immigration to our little paradise. How big of a bitch do you have to be, when you should be seeing a little ray of sun shine in your hateful, sad , little life….but you just can't let go of that old bone.

    1. Barb

      Thanks for the contact information. I sent a nasty e-mail to her and it bounced right back. I have a feeling that for the first time in her long life her box is full.

  42. RavenRant

    Y'all are such newshounds you probably know all of this already, BUT –

    Fun Facts about Jan Brewer:

    She is known around the Statehouse as "Governor Glug Glug" as well as "Otis" in memory of Mayberry's town drunk.

    Ironically, her maiden name is "Drinkwine".

    Her son, Ronald, kidnapped and raped a women at knifepoint in 1989. He was deemed criminally insane and confined to the Arizona State Hospital, although he periodically tries to regain his freedom.

    She claimed "…my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany." In fact, her father never served in combat, and was never even in the military. He died in 1955 in California. When reporters confronted her with the facts, she responded, "You're trying to make a liar out of me."

    She claimed, "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded."

    Arizona law enforcement agencies and medical examiners in Arizona's border counties said they had never seen an immigration-related beheading. She repeatedly doubled down on that lie for four months, before admitting, “That was an error, if I said that.”

    And, of course, the two mayors who were present at her encounter with President Obama, one Republican and one Democrat, flatly contradict her account of the President's behavior.

    Republican Mayor Scott Smith of Mesa said he was standing right next to the governor when the exchange took place and Obama didn’t seem to be in any kind of hurry to leave. Smith said the president stayed and had a pleasant conversation with him and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. It was “just the four of us,” Smith said. “Mayor Stanton and I had a decent talk with him.”

    Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, Democrat, said Obama seemed calm the whole time.
    “He wasn’t tense at all,” Stanton said on Friday. “The guy’s a pro.”

    1. Chichikovovich

      Wow, Thanks: I didn't know a quarter of that stuff. Very entertaining, and practical too. F'r instance, from the fact that Arizonans elected her, I realized that a majority of them must be xenophobic born-again Christian meth addicts, and so I decided never to go there. But now that I know this about Jan "Yeastie" Brewer, I'll never pass through a state that borders Arizona either. Or take a flight that passes through their airspace. I wonder if it's possible to make sure that I never use electricity that has been transmitted through a wire that passes through Arizona?

      1. RavenRant

        TPM got the quotes from the mayors days ago. You'll notice their quotes haven't shown up in a single report from any other news source.

        If you noticed my other post with contact info for Governor Lying-ass Hag, I called two offices and emailed that I was boycotting all things Arizonian until she was out of office.

          1. RavenRant

            I made the mistake of signing up with godaddy for a BRILLIANT website that has yet to be created. Then I saw their 'All women are whores' ads, the CEO's despicable antics and so forth. I didn't even know they were from AZ. It figures.

            Jukesgrrl and her allies are the only redeeming features of the state. And the Grand Canyon is pretty cool, too.

            I will be switching to another hosting service and, hopefully, finally get the website off the ground. Build the dang website!

      2. Jukesgrrl

        And in other news, Phoenix's new Democratic Mayor Greg Stanton very impressive. Within two weeks of his Jan. 3 inauguration he had an experienced staff up and running and he's got a strong commitment to diversity and growth in America's fifth-largest city. Here's his inaugural address, if anyone's interested in knowing everything in Arizona is not run by Republicans.

          1. Jukesgrrl

            Not worth the money.She's just a scarecrow.The problem is the voices in her head (i.e. the leaders of the state GOP) and the state reps they manage to get elected.If we could “clean house” (literally), Jan would just drink away the rest of her term.But that will be hard as long as Mesa and Gilbert are filled with Evangelicals and Mormons and Scottsdale is chock-a-block with Richie Riches.

        1. Chichikovovich

          Hey Jukesgrrl, – I was just about to write "this shows Arizonans are xenophobic born-again Christian meth addicts" and then I remembered you and other reasonable, non-xenophobic, born-just-once non-fundamentalist, non-meth addict* Arizonans, and I stuck in the "a majority of". Keep fighting the good fight.

          (*Well, I guess I have no direct evidence that you're not a meth addict, but I'm going out on a limb)

          1. Jukesgrrl

            Not a meth addict but I went to college when the moon was in the seventh house and Jupiter aligned with Mars, so draw your own conclusions.Peace.

          2. Chichikovovich

            Hey, I've heard about that time! Wasn't that when peace guided the planets and love steered the stars?

            Wow. So jealous. All that harmony and understanding. And don't forget the sympathy and trust abounding. No more falsehoods or derisions. golden living dreams of visions, mystic crystal revelation. [I have no idea what that is, but it's got to be good, right?] And the mind's true liberation?

            'Course, it wouldn't have been all sunshine and bongs. I assume "derisions" was chosen because "snark" wouldn't rhyme. And I would miss that.

    Will teach the Quran and Gita and Native American Religion as well.
    Wait, what?

      About freaking time. And non-criminal, non-adulterer Anthony Weiner was hounded 24 hours a day for weeks until he resigned.

      Actually, I think she went easy on this creep. But tougher than anyone else has ever been.

      Too bad the word 'diaper' was not mentioned.

  46. sunmusing

    Now com'on all….Jan just needs a good old fashioned Great American Fuck. Ya know, the multi-orgasmic type so beloved of most Women of stature. Not that I would volunteer mind you, there must be some one…..anyone? anyone?

  47. Jukesgrrl

    Jan's never done anything in her life that someone else didn't plan, so it's more than likely this stunt was instigated by her publisher. And it worked. Her book immediately shot up into Amazon's top 50. It's still overshadowed though by Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence. And in the "People who bought this also bought" category, the answers are Mark Levin and Bill O'Reilly's most recent tomes.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      And the four nutbags who gaver her 5 stars have been joined by hundred of fresh reviewers. With predictable results.

  48. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

    God, is it time for another winger lecture on how THISISACONSTITUTIONALREPUBLICNOTADEMOCRACY!!!1!!?

    Sometimes I think these folks object to "democracy" because that implies that the wrong kind of people are allowed to vote. Nahh…that would be paranoid, wouldn't it?

  49. RavenRant

    Did anyone else point out that she's given about forty interviews since this 'incident', with forty ever-mutating versions of what the president said and did, and NOT ONCE did this particular fabrication, (ONE MORE YEAR), or anything remotely resembling it, surface?

    Republican politicians don't care if they are caught in lies, because Republican voters don't mind that they are being lied to. Lie, lie, deny, deny, deflect, distract – it's bone deep with them.

    1. MilwaukeeKent

      Once GOP voters hear what they want to hear, facts don't mean shit. Affirm their prejudice and you have their vote.

    2. Chichikovovich

      That what I found hardest to get used to when I first arrived here during the Reagan years. He would say things that anyone with more than simple brainstem functions could see were lies, shamelessly, and none of his supporters gave a damn. And it's just gotten worse since then. I've gotten accustomed to it, in the sense that I am no longer surprised, but I gotta say it still makes me dizzy when I think about it.

      1. RavenRant

        Why our so-called liberal media are so weak and accommodating to the lies is a whole other reason to get dizzy.

        1. Chichikovovich

          Yes, I don't want to forget that either. Two moments I still remember vividly, after all these years:

          a) One or two days after I arrived there was an election in Spain – the Socialist party was elected for the first time. Some Reagan foreign policy goblin published an op-ed in the “liberal New York Times" excoriating the Spanish people for rejecting "democracy and freedom". I was absolutely stunned – no joke, I had one of those moments where you so completely fail to believe what you are reading that your mind goes simply blank for a second, with a cacophony of disbelieving thoughts bumping into one another and cancelling themselves out – that a high official in the foreign policy branch of the government would not understand the difference between a system for choosing a government, like democracy, and a system that a government – freely elected or not – could use to have some small influence on the distribution of wealth in society. Also, having worked in Denmark some years before, I knew damn well that the suggestion that there was anything incompatible between social democracy and freedom was preposterous. I was, in addition, speechless that the New York Times, which I had been told was regarded as a beacon of journalistic excellence and left-leaning thought [I had a lot to learn] would let such tripe soil its pages.

          b) About a year later, TV debate on Nicaragua, on CNN, between talking rodent Elliott Abrams, recently promoted from his position as State Department undersecretary for human rights and some well-intentioned but befuddled minister clearly unaccustomed to aggressive debate and on live national TV for the first time. [No joke. Human Rights. Carter had established the office, and Reagan's people realized it would be a public relations misstep to just flatly shut it down. So in true Reagan/Bush II fashion, they just appointed to run the place someone hostile to the entire mission.]

          Chichikovna was, at the time, working for the Costa Rica office of a prominent do-gooder organization, with Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador as the territories she was responsible for. So I had first-hand information about what things were really like in the Reagan-supported "fledgling democracies" (= blood soaked military régimes) of El Salvador and Honduras and the Reagan-hated "Communist dictatorship" (= redistributive government, not yet democratically elected but soon would be, under attack by CIA organized and supported Contras to the East, South and North.) Decent and honest but hopless debater of the cloth compares the absence of major street protests against the Sandinistas with enormous popular street protests in the Philippines against US – supported Ferdinand Marcos. Abrams replies contemptuously, with the same terrier-on-speed-shaking-a-captured-weasel aggression he's displayed from the start: "Well, that's because if you protest in Nicaragua they take you out and kill you. Nobody kills you for protesting in the Philippines."

          Concerning Nicaragua, this was of course bullshit, but it was a piece of bullshit that the US media had clearly, en bloc tacitly agreed to leave unchallenged. The true journalistic malpractice was that this was little more than a year after former Philippino Senator and provincial Governor, leader of the Anti-Marcos opposition Benigo Aquino had been shot down in cold blood while stepping off of the airplane that was returning him from exile. (Since the return of Aquino from exile was front-page news in the Philippines, and in fact around the world, there were a dozen TV cameras and news photographers there to film/photo the brazen killing. The result was headline news everywhere in the world, and the killing – being an on-camera killing, after all – got saturation coverage even in the US.) Decent but over-his-head minister spluttered ineffectually, head gone apparently blank from the pressure of a live TV camera, but unbelievably, the “professional journalist" moderator didn't mention Aquino at all, even though the woman who was made a widow by the killing was leading – in a very high-profile way – the soon-to-be successful opposition and it was well known that it was the Marcos-ordered killing of her husband that had put her in that place to begin with.

          In the intervening 25 years the media have, of course, gotten even worse, as you note.

          1. RavenRant

            And we recently backed another military coup over a democratically elected government in Honduras, and helped a former member of the Tonton Macoutes gain power in Haiti.

            And Baby Doc Duvalier is on hand to advise him.

            Fucking fuck.

  50. DustBowlBlues

    So true. I wonder what it takes to push the country to the extreme right the way the so-called Republican Elites have managed to do to this country. How do the keep the morans as angry as they always seem to be.

    What happened to these people? I thought the Viet Nam War polarized the country into two groups, with one side never talking to the other, but looks like a little skirmish compared to the current mess.

    Who's to blame? What's to blame? Aliens who podded Repubtards?

    1. SorosBot

      That was pretty much where it started, but other issues such as the Civil Rights movement, feminism, youthful rebellion in general (which was primarily among the "elitist" college kids) and anger at the sexual revolution were twisted in with Vietnam to divide America and create some very angry backwards people.

      First Ronald Reagan in California, then Richard Nixon nationally, perfected appealing to the bitter white men's resentments of the gains made by black people and women and the changing culture to get votes while stoking that hatred in those times, then Reagan did so again in 1980 and we got the Moral Majority, the rise of far-right talk radio and later Fox News to create a permanent class of very angry ultra-conservative white people.

      1. RavenRant

        Given the subject of this post, don't forget Bitter White Women and their resentments.

        Women, in general, tend to be more liberal then men, but there's a small core of vicious Phyllis Schlaffly wannabes in the country. Palin, Bachman, Angle, Brewer.

        1. SorosBot

          Oh yeah; and they are especially angry about other women and want to tramp down on their rights. There's been a long parade women who professionally hate women in the GOP.

          1. RavenRant

            Yeah, they don't actually want to dummy up and stay in the kitchen themselves, that's for all the other bitches.

            The worst enemy of a feminist woman is the bitch who wants to be 'the only girl in the boys club.'

  51. Designer_Rants

    I assume AZ's Anus has an itch that can only be scratched by poking its tanned-leather skin-tags toward a decent person's face and farting out a wretched cloud of Birther hisses?

    That pic just shows what is great about America: Two people of color can meet on the tarmac & have a civilized exchange & that the POTUS is actually willing to listen a fellow American, no matter how fucking insane they are. USA!

  53. Negropolis

    This is right out of the Palin Playbook.

    Fuck off, you Gila skank monster, and your little dog, too.

    1. RavenRant

      Leatherface is going to have a very hard time playing the Palin role. She only got the attention she did because she gave certain aging Repugs, and certain perverse Wonketteers, a chubby.

      I don't think there is anyone perverse enough to be aroused by Governer Lies-a-Lot. And if there is, please don't tell me. And absolutely NO PIX!

  54. RavenRant

    And another thing – Barry has had four years of being called a Sekrit Muslin, Mau Mau Kenyan Anticolonialist, Un-American, Anti-American, Alien, weak, cowardly, worse than Stalin, worse than Hitler, traitor, terrorist, monkey, n****r, the fucking ANTICHRIST, his wife and children have been insulted and threatened, he's been threatened repeatedly with assassination…

    And this senile crone wants us to believe he pissed down his leg and lost his shit over being called PATRONIZING!?! Fer fuck's sake. Thin-skinned, my ass.

  55. Negropolis

    What really bothers me about this habitual disrespect of the president is that I can not imagine a single Democratic governor who would have done shit like this to Dubya, who was at least as deserving of a public finger-wagging – and oh so much more – as this president. But, what bothers me just as much is that the president hasn't seemed to figure out how to respond to this disrespect of the office outside of silence, which doesn't quash this bullshit, and only lets it fester.

    Beyond being worried about the president being disrespected, if I'm to be honest, I'm much more concerned about the people, usually of my hue, that have to put up with this crap day-to-day, and for the president to sit back and take it only justifies and solidifies in their own mind how they treat regular people in this society on a daily basis. Someone has to say "enough!", already. I don't know who that will be, but I know that person is needed, because this symbolic disrespecting trickles down to people of means much less able to defend against this onslaught.

    1. RavenRant

      Samuel L. Jackson?

      Or maybe Shaq could be deployed to walk up and put a massive hand on the offender's shoulder, and say, "Uncool" while squeezing just hard enough to make them crumple in a twitching heap.

    2. SudsMcKenzie

      "sit back and take it only justifies and solidifies in their own mind how they treat regular people in this society on a daily basis."


      I have two "Hopes",

      1. He's taking this like Andy Dufresne in Shawshank for a long game.
      2. The joy I will experience watching those fucks heads explode when he gets four more years, not having to pander for another election in his life, and possibly in 2014 getting the House back.

    3. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

      Some guy in Britain made a TV mockumentary about Bush being assassinated. Even though A) it aired near the end of Bush's presidency, B) it didn't advocate assassination–it openly criticized people who thought political killing is justified, and C) virtually nobody saw it (it barely got any US release and it grossed under a million dollars worldwide), the mere fact of its existence justifies any vileness that the R's can heap on Obama.

      Oh, yeah, and there are photos of at least 10-15 homemade signs at antiwar demonstrations wishing for Bush's death. Clearly equivalent to elected officials wagging their fingers at Obama.

      Also, it's unspeakably racist for you to suggest that opposition to this Kenyan Mau-Mau communist has anything to do with the color of his skin.

    4. Bluestatelibel

      That's the first thing I thought, there'd be plenty of flipping out if someone had done this to Dubya. This woman is really shameful in her disrespect of the president.

      On the other hand, Obama handles it all with such class, as seen in the photo. He has never made a fool of himself, and he handles himself with such grace, it will long be remembered.

      1. Negropolis

        Will it long be remembered? That's where my skepticism comes in. You know, folks like us calmly look at this, and pity the long-suffering president, but it doesn't exactly rally the troops. On the other end, this shit is like cat nip to the wingnuts. They get fundraising out of this and laughes and whatever else they get perversely out of this.

        I guess my frustration stems from the fact that I'm coming to the belief they get WAY more out of him not reacting to them than we get out of the calm-cool-collected routine he does. Everytime this shit happens, their fundraising goes through the roof for a day, at least.

        1. Bluestatelibel

          I still see Obama being re-elected (confession: I'm a poli sci nerd), all the signs seem to point it. Yes, the 25% rightwing nutjobs get a kick out of this, but it's the moderate voters who will count. It's doesn' matter to them that Obama is blah, they don't hate him, or get off on people like Brewer. And it couldn't have been a worse time for the GOPeers to run a 1 percenter like Romney, not an arrogant, out-of-touch one like Romney. I'd be very surprised if Hopey doesn't win again.

  56. Barrelhse

    Jan "Don't call me 'mummy'" Brewer? I really don't want to criticize her looks. I have no intention of mentioning what she looks like, or resembles, or anything mean like that, about her so-called "looks". If that's what she wants to call them. Not a peep out of me about her skin (Dermatologists HATE her!) or her hair because, well, I'm above all that- making fun of her frightening fucking face, I mean.
    Her ugly mind, though, is fair game.

      1. Chichikovovich

        Well, as the internet is revealing to an astonished world, there appear to be super-specific fetishes of all bizarre kinds, that [Miracle of free enterprise! Magic of the marketplace!] have whole websites devoted to them. So when one of your kids clicks on the wrong link, and then comes to ask you "Daddy, what does "SMPSASWASTP" stand for?" and you look it up to learn that there is apparently a market for Six Month Pregnant South Asian in Stockings with Wombat (Also in Stockings) Tentacle Porn.

        So perhaps there are Cantankerous Withered Old Crone (CWOC) fetishists out there who would pay top dollar for a live show.

  57. Redhead

    So… Jan Brewer's opening rhetoric is okay, because she planned to get to real results later (she's white), but Obama's opening bitchslap (rhetoric) wasn't okay because he walked away instead of standing there and arguing (he's black)? Is that basically it?

  58. Chichikovovich

    Brewer forgot to mention the Black Panthers with truncheons standing just outside the camera range.

  59. finallyhappy

    I am so tired of people(racists) saying racism isn't an issue here anymore. You have the "nice" people who say " we don't want to talk about that anymore- it isn't necessary" and the open racists(really- at least they are honest)- who say "It is their(blacks/latinos) own fault". Racism never left this country(bullshit to anyone who says it did) and the airing of racist views has become "acceptable" because of the GOP and media who pander to them.

    1. DrOzarkZ.Hellbender

      There's no racism anymore. It's a fact. That crowd in Sarasota that responded to Gingrich's "Send Obama back to Chicago" by chanting "Kenya! Kenya! Kenya!" was simply talking about geography, not race.

      It's also not news that the incident wasn't bigger news.

      Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
      Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
      Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
      Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,–
      For a charm of powerful trouble,
      Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

      I think she may have overdone the "eye of newt" in this latest batch of poison.

    Hi, this is Emanuel Pedro Martinez, and I am the official Doctor and Physician to the Governor for the state government of Arizona. I have now completed my official monthly mental and physical examination of Jan Brewer, somehow the current governor of the state of Arizona. Skipping several pages of details, I'll get right to my main summarization of Brewer regarding her current mental health status, as quoted from my official medical report: "Jan Brewer, as of January, 2012, continues to exhibit dangerously high levels of insanity. It is my conclusion that she is delusional, insane, psycho, and in dire need of continue mental health care, including generous supplies of medication."

    O/T but worthwhile reading for tangentially related content and a priceless quote.

    The attorney general of Virginia and a few state lawmakers & mayor-types from both VA and MD are gearing up for a "Rat Summit" ('s words) to address the overflow of D.C.'s rat population into neighboring states, to the point where representative Mike McDonough fears:

    "The rats multiply at astronomical rates and the rodents who have crossed the border into Maryland must be made illegal because they can produce large numbers of anchor babies…"

    – so the news release from McDonough's office says.

    yet no posts do I see with my eyes.

    Are the editors still asleep in their beds?
    Gaining rest for the day's work ahead?

    Tonight's contest might finally decide
    which of the GOP hopefuls we can deride.

      We are all in their dream. No way i would fantasize a group of republican candidates such as we have all been seeing. Somebody give Layne 'the kick' so we can get on to the real Presidential Election.

  66. Phil_SF

    All kidding aside, is this even compliant with FEC rules? It's signed by Jan but claims to be an independent PAC. Any election law experts out there?

  67. Biel_ze_Bubba

    I appreciate the vagaries of events scattered randomly in time, but surely it defies all odds that we could go this long without a Republican doing something stupid and/or loathsome. I know for a fact they haven't yet exhausted the vast reservoirs of fuctardedness available in this country.
