Georgia Lege Goes For Gold In Wingnut Olympics

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Picketing Banned in Georgia.Crossover Day! Crossover Day! A day when every possible batshit mean curbjob-the-welfare-Cadillac-Queens bill simply MUST get passed in order to avoid NOobAma’s death panels. What delights does Newtonia have in store for us, as it gets all slick and sweaty trying to catch up to your Floridas and Mississippis and good ol’ AZ’s? Let’s round them up and hoe them down! Piss-testing those on gubmint relief? Check. Banning union pickets in labor disputes (except for teachers and cops) — d/b/a your First Amendment right to assembly? But naturally. Letting the little Hitlers* of your neighborhood homeowners association ban yer dirty hippie solar panels? FUCK YEAH, COMMIE, GET OUT. Turning into hysterical ninnies about that other part of the First Amendment, religious liberty, as defined by the Founders’ Stated Intent of putting all the single ladiez under Sharia? What do you think?

That’s not even mentioning making sure state employees can’t abort their Precious Bundles, because duh, and outlawing assisted suicide, on which well-meaning people can disagree. So did the Georgia Lege pass anything good for Crossover Day? Hmmm, let’s check.

No. The End. [Rome News-Tribune]

      Mississippi: "Just wait til next year!"

  • HELisforHEL

    So many states to avoid ever living in. Siigh.

    • MrFizzy

      Many to choose from, and on some level it's getting more difficult, as formerly reasonable places seem to be shifting towards gun/abortion/drug/alcohol/education/immigrant madness.

    • Biff

      Orange County CA has about 1/3 the population of Georgia in a very compact space, so if it's wingnuts you're after but don't want to travel far, it might just be for you!

      • LagunaB

        Sadly, Orange County use to be orange groves. And the Santa Ana freeway stopped at Beach Blvd and it was sand dunes all the way to Huntington Beach. Laguna was just a artist colony.

    For this post only, can we make an exception for a Special Olympics joke?

    • Fare la Volpe

      People in the Special Olympics love everybody and want nothing but hugs and a cookie. They are much better human beings than Georgia conservatives.

      • Lascauxcaveman

        Most of them are better looking than your average GA legislator, too.

      • pdiddycornchips

        That bar is not raised very high. If we replaced the Georgia Republican caucus with the cast of Jersey Shore, the level of intelligent debate would skyrocket.

        • el_donaldo

          The average IQ in both Georgia and New Jersey would go up!

          • LagunaB

            I live in south Jersey and that is so true.

      • http://wonkette.com Chillatte

        Boy, do I feel like an asshole now. Have you and Rebecca teamed up or what?

      • MrFizzy

        Plus they are more likely to vote for someone or something based on an approximation of reality, whereas most Georgia conservatives lack anything approaching that state of mind.

      • Steverino247

        Hugs and a cookie sounds pretty damned good to me. Where do I sign up?

        • HistoriCat

          Didn't we already cover hugs in the last post? I assume that the cookies will be here once some people – and you know who you are – stop mouthing off and start following the rules.

      • Crank_Tango

        That's not at all true!!!! Georgia conservatives are not human beings.

      I think they should all go *thinks about it* skullfuck themselves.

      • Crank_Tango

        I have been thinking about skullfucking a lot in the past day, because I was told to.

        • http://whatisawatthedevolution.blogspot.com imissopus

          I'm willing to bet the number of times "skullfucking" has been typed or obliquely referenced here in the last twenty-four hours far outstrips the number of times it has been said or referenced in the entire history of this website.

          • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

            If someone has their head up their ass, and you are having teh buttsecks with said individual, are you skullfucking them?

  • Blueb4sunrise


  • memzilla

    Wait, wait, I'm confused. Does this mean that Mrs. Willie Horton can have only 3/5ths of an abortion? Does she have to learn to smog-test her own Cadillac?

    And can the Klan still have their Klaverns, because First and Second Amendments, so long as they use an EPA-approved biofuel to light the crosses?

  • Bonzos_Bed_Time

    Oh yeah, so calling them "little Hitlers" is not totally libelous???

    You know who else called people "little Hitlers"???

    • Fare la Volpe


      • Ruhe

        Your timing is impeccable.

    • IncenseDebate

      Hitler's mom? When she called the kids to dinner?

    • MrFizzy

      Marco Rubio's neighbors?

    • Crank_Tango

      Actually, according to the urban dictionary, a "little hitler" is a variant of the classic "dirty sanchez" *

      *not really, but it should be. Don't make me look it up. OK fine:

      1. Little Hitler is a shaving and trimming short of a women's pubic area. This leaves a small short haired patch of hair that looks like a mustache. Although most men prefer women with shaved pussy, the little hitler is a second best.

      3. the european version of the dirty sanchez
      the little hitler is when you stick your finger up a womans bum, pull it out then draw a moustache over her upper lip

      • teebob2000

        Do I have to pick just one??

      • Steverino247

        "Although most men prefer women with shaved pussy, "

        Speak for yourself, buddy. In my day, women had hair down there and we liked it!

        • HistoriCat

          Well, aren't we picky, Mr. Spoiled for Choice! In my day, we (okay, I) didn't complain about the state of the foliage down there – just being able to find out was a too rare event.

          • Biff

            Do NOT look up "snatchsquatch"!

        • SorosBot

          Are we talking about the 70s-style, giant ungroomed thicket of full hair that you'll get stuck in your mouth? Ick.

    I'd like to echo quacker's sentiment, posted 11 hours ago in the only comment under the article on the RN-T.com website link:

    "State Republicans are do-do heads".

    I'll go even further, though. The entire Republican party are a bunch of do-do heads. WHERE ARE THE JOBS and why do they keep pouring do-do from their heads?

  • Crank_Tango

    Well, at least these fuckers are, uh, consistently against government intrusion in our lives, except when they have a total hard-on for it.

  • Abernathy

    You didn't mention the biggest outrage of them all: "the House plan trimmed…$10 million for the College Football Hall of Fame." Then what's the point of saving all that phat money by outlawing state accountants' field trips to the Abortionplex? They may as well call themselves the USSR of Georgia.

  • Fare la Volpe

    The Georgia Senate approved legislation that would require people seeking food stamps to earn their GED, pursue technical education, attend self-development classes or enroll in adult literacy classes to receive benefits….

    If passed, the law would exempt: People under 16 or over 59; the mentally or physically disabled; caretakers of dependent children or adults; people who work at least 30 hours a week; students; participants in alcohol or drug rehabilitation programs or people receiving unemployment benefits.

    So it would exempt people who can't vote and anyone who votes Republican, huh?

    • OneDollarJuana

      'Cept for the working 30 hours bit. Unless you count moonshine-making.

  • Sue4466

    As a resident of Georgia, let me say: the North should have let this POS place go when it had the chance.

    They still are trying to live down and make up for the fact that the two-letter USPS abbreviation for their state is GA. GAY!

      Comparing Rushbo to Hay-zoos?! Now, I'm not a Christian, so what do I know, but wouldn't most Christians consider that somewhat blasphemous?

    It's your turn, Arizona and South Carolina; see if you up the crazy past Georgia!

    • carolinaswamp

      We just gave you the Laurens County Republican Party Purity Test, what more do you want? Besides, everybody is busy waiting for the Lt. Gov. to resign as part of his plea agreement on campaign corruption charges, which will leave the position vacant. The constitutional successor doesn't want the job, which mainly involves waiting for the governor to die. Although there are a number of people in the state who could handle these job requirements, the position is likely to devolve to whomever is most anxious to retire in place and collect a paycheck for doing nothing except dressing up in a pretty robe to preside over the Senate.

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Less hippie-commie ranting and more advice on how to use coupons more effectively please! Also, my kids refuse to eat anything but fruit loops fried in bacon grease. What should I do?

    None of several pieces of legislation seeking to tighten lobbying rules passed, including one measure that would have banned lobbyists from spending more than $100 on lawmakers.

    You don't say.

  • SorosBot

    I see they also tried a state-level version of the Blunt Amendment to give employers' control of their employees' uteri. Someone hasn't heard of the Supremacy Clause – sorry misogynists, if your state law violates federal law, it's trash.

    • Crank_Tango

      Oddly enough, they thought it meant White Supremacy.

  • http://wonkette.com Pres.Beeblebrox

    Oh, Georgia, Georgia… Small government is better, right? Tax & spend liberals are evil, right?

    Those lines make perfect sense from a party who sponsored an anti-Food Stamp program which would cost $772 MILLION to implement. That's 772 followed by six zeros (divided by zero = gigantic time/space implosion).

    Who's the free-spending party now, bitches?

    The Georgia Senate approved legislation that would require people seeking food stamps to earn their GED, pursue technical education, attend self-development classes or enroll in adult literacy classes to receive benefits. Sen. William Ligon, the bill's sponsor, said the legislation is intended to help underemployed Georgians get the professional development training they need to better themselves. Opponents slammed the proposal as an onerous burden on an already strained population.

    If passed, the law would exempt: People under 16 or over 59; the mentally or physically disabled; caretakers of dependent children or adults; people who work at least 30 hours a week; students; participants in alcohol or drug rehabilitation programs or people receiving unemployment benefits. The Department of Human Services would first create a five-county pilot program before taking the initiative statewide.

    The Department of Audits and Accounts estimates the pilot program cost at $23 million, with statewide implementation expected to cost $772 million.

    I hope Georgia's representatives sent their constituents a nice "fuck you" note with that.

  • ttommyunger

    Should have know that dingleberry Rick Warren would be somehow coupled with this assholery. I know in my heart he set Barry up by arranging for Walnuts to hear the Obamer segment prior to coming on for his own part. OT: Osama was reportedly living with three wives, 28 kids and 5 grand-kids in that mud dwelling in Pakistan. This revelation is spurring speculation that rather than being killed by our troops, he snatched the gun from the first SEAL into his quarters and shot himself.

  • el_donaldo

    The penalty for the inability of white Southerners to treat people not of European descent with dignity is too be governed by idiots. Which would be fine if the screaming bigots were the only ones affected, but that's sadly not the case.

    Is there some way to make state elections sexy so people will pay attention?

    Maybe some Hollywood movie star reading this could start going around the country to support progressives running for, say, state senate from Pudunkville?

    Maybe Wonkette could offer a daily round-up of progressive politicians at the local and state level who need our help to beat the Repugs?

    (And maybe people running for state office could dress better and fix themselves up a little?)

    Our states are run by those who show up. We gotta figure out a way to make state elections glammy so the cool people will want to be there.
