North Carolina Guv Finds Worst Insult For Amendment One Supporters

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

Derp.

North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue is extremely unhappy with the 61 percent of her tragically dumb constituents who voted to constitutionally ban gay marriage and gay civil unions in the state. How unhappy? Full nuclear insult unhappy: “People are saying what in the world is going on with North Carolina, we look like Mississippi.” OH SNAP.

You gonna take that, Mississippi?

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant says he is disappointed by Perdue’s remarks. “Certainly, the comments from the North Carolina governor were very disappointing,” said Bryant. “To be able to use Mississippi in a disparaging way on a popular vote in her own state is, I think, something that’s certainly petty and something I think she will reflect on and hopefully apologize for those types of remarks.”

Hm. Bryant has forgotten the part where he disagrees with the assertion that the state is terrible. [WITN-TV]

And the other 48 states fear looking like Mississippi and North Carolina. Well, maybe not Arizona, they are just old, leathery idgits.

Fare la Volpe May 12, 2012 at 10:15 am

they are just old, leathery idgits

You could say the same about cattle.

Guppy May 12, 2012 at 10:21 am

Cross-breeding does that.

Barb May 12, 2012 at 10:34 am

But cattle are delicious!
I'm surprised the North Carolina governor didn't say, "North Carolina is better than Mississippi, and less exhausting to spell."

flamingpdog May 12, 2012 at 11:18 am

Arizonan teatards are living proof that Indians fucked buffalo.

So much old sad hatred in that particular joke.

So ignorant loud old racist white people are proof that an entirely separate racial group did something unpleasant…? I'm not following.

Well that's how they pronounce it.

It's like Uz-becky-becky-stan-stan. You just get tired of typing it or saying it.

Infrogmation May 12, 2012 at 6:11 pm

I've been told that third generation Mississippi natives can pronounce the state name in one syllable, but only while drunk.

Schmegeg May 12, 2012 at 10:09 am

" . . .something that’s certainly petty and something I think she will reflect on and hopefully apologize for those types of remarks.” and then added: "After all, this isn't Utah."

Native_of_SL_UT May 12, 2012 at 12:47 pm

As a native Utahn, I wish I could be offended by that statement, but as I said, I'm a native Utahn.

Negropolis May 12, 2012 at 11:11 pm

Well, Utah routinely ranks as one of the top ten least obese states while Mississippi consistently tops the list of the most obese states, so you guys got that. Apparently, Mormons don't seem to look too kindly upon overeating.

LetUsBray May 12, 2012 at 11:48 pm

More likely, yanking it to porn that much burns some serious calories.

An Asexual Ungulate May 12, 2012 at 7:06 pm

To which the Utah governor replied "I'm surprised that the governor of Mississippi realized we were a state, he must have gone to one of those fancy 'schools' they're all so proud of recently getting. I hope he'll see the error of his ways and apologize to the people of this fine state. After all, it's not like we're North Dakota."

Fare la Volpe May 12, 2012 at 10:13 am

To be able to use Mississippi in a disparaging way

is pretty easy.

Chichikovovich May 12, 2012 at 11:34 am

Kind of unsporting, really. Like shooting animals from a helicopter or finding positions on which Romney has changed his stance 180 degrees.

seppdecker May 12, 2012 at 3:57 pm

That's why the kids at Wasilla High called Bristol Palin "Mississippi."

I'm kidding. It was "The Big Easy."

Butch_Wagstaff May 12, 2012 at 7:07 pm

They also called her "Miss Sippy".

Veritas78 May 12, 2012 at 9:44 pm

I thought it was "Ole Three Holer."

DerrickWildcat May 12, 2012 at 10:18 am

Ok, off topic, (sorry) but follow up story to crazy Lincoln, Nebraska (still fourth best state) Lady that was terrified of the gays.
Hint: She really is crazy. So shame on you! http://journalstar.com/news/local/govt-and-politi

Dashboard Buddha May 12, 2012 at 10:30 am

Crazy she might be, but I'd bet there are a ton of non-crazy (aka non-diagnosed) people that want her to run for congress.

Callyson May 12, 2012 at 10:35 am

"She does have a very tender heart … but anything she says is certifiably schizophrenic … she's not some crazy conservative."

Sorry, my bad, but it's so hard to tell the difference…

sullivanst May 12, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Surely she's literally some crazy conservative.

DemmeFatale May 12, 2012 at 10:38 am

"She does have a very tender heart … but anything she says is certifiably schizophrenic … she's not some crazy conservative."

Love the comparison!!
(Told you she was off her meds.)

She went Full Timecube. You never go Full Timecube.

Pragmatist2 May 12, 2012 at 11:12 am

The mistake is understandable. telling the difference between a Republican and someone formally certified as crazy is a matter best left to experts. As a practical matter it makes little difference since the overlap is so high.

salt_bagel May 12, 2012 at 11:20 am

Wait, that wasn't just a really high level poetry slam?

Designer_Rants May 12, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Good job using "high level" instead of "meta". They hate that word 'round here.

Doktor StrangeZoom May 12, 2012 at 11:49 am

In the 18th century people used to go to Bedlam to stare at the lunatics. For a penny one could peer into their cells, view the freaks of the "show of Bethlehem" and laugh at their antics. Entry was free on the first Tuesday of the month. In 1814 alone, there were 96,000 such visits –Wikipedia, Bethlehem Royal Hospital

See how much progress we've made?

C_R_Eature May 12, 2012 at 3:15 pm

A tremendous amount of Progress, surely.
Now, one merely has to activate one's own Personal Tele-Visual Receiver, often in the comfort of one's very own home, and tune the Devices frequency in to "The Jersey Shore".

Butch_Wagstaff May 12, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Eh. I can walk a few blocks to the corner of Broad St. & the Boulevard to see crazy. But, then again, even some of those folks are saner that most people on "reality shows".

Native_of_SL_UT May 12, 2012 at 12:49 pm

The only difference between her and the rest of the GOP is the "diagnosed" part.

FrenchTwist40 May 12, 2012 at 1:10 pm

That never stopped us from ridiculing Michele Bachmann, though!

Negropolis May 12, 2012 at 11:12 pm

"She does have a tender heart…she just hates the dickens out of the gays is all, bless her heart."

arihaya May 12, 2012 at 10:18 am

it could have been worse, people could think that North Carolina is like Texas.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 12, 2012 at 10:21 am

Apologize? To whom? This one's a bit hard to walk back.
"Sorry N.C., I didn't mean to compare you to Mississippi?" or "Sorry, Mississippi, I didn't mean to compare you to N.C?"

Maybe the standard Republican "Sorry if anyone was offended" nopology is the best tactic here.

Butch_Wagstaff May 12, 2012 at 5:51 pm

"I'm sorry if I offended any states who decided to interpret my words to mean that I was insulting them."

“….something I think she will reflect on and hopefully apologize for those types of remarks.”
Your move, Aunt Grandma.

Guppy May 12, 2012 at 10:26 am

The remark can only be disparaging if Mississippi's stance is wrong-headed.

The ghost of Jesse follows around interracial gay couples shaking its ghost fist at them.

Perfect! :-)

I've met the guy. I can tell you FO SHO he is an a**hole.

OneYieldRegular May 12, 2012 at 11:48 am

She must not be from North Carolina, else she would have known that given any chance to disparage another state, North Carolinians are constitutionally required to go with "South Carolina."

GlowneyHouse May 12, 2012 at 3:40 pm

This is correct. On the other hand, South Carolinians always compare themselves favorably to Mississippi as in "we're 49th in education again. Thank God for Mississippi."

and in associated SC news, an Elvis impersonator is arrested for assault after arguing over the rules of a board game, and leaves with the Blues Brothers.

Negropolis May 12, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Ban same-sex marriage. Oh wait…

Seriously, though, NC broght us Jesse Helms…for many years, so you guys still have a lot to make up for. Delivering a victory for Obama in 2008 and giving us a female Democratic governor and the Research Triangle is a nice start.

FakaktaSouth May 12, 2012 at 10:49 am

Yo, Mississippi, if you don't like being an example for the stupid, fat, homophobic, ignorant, racist, type2 diabetic, uneducated, slovenly, Wal-Mart loving, redneck, lowest common denominator of this country, stop acting like it.

(Yes. takes one to know one. Alabama says thanks for taking the hit on this one. Also, at least you can gamble in Mississippi – I have to cross the border for that)

ETA, after reading some comments – This is beautiful, watching you all put North Carolina in the stupid southern category, because I KNOW it pisses MOST of them off BIG TIME – they are like the kid from Dallas who moves to NY and is now "above it all." NC has a Democratic Lady Governor, talk funny (like yanks), have all those private Universities, like basketball instead of football (and Lacrosse!), get cold weather in the winter and didn't really get in to "mainstream" Nascar in Charlotte til California did (Jeff Gordon!) But they did a stupid, stupid, terrible thing and just got kicked back down to wallow with the ignant fucktard crew. LOVE LOVE LOVE it.

spareme May 12, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Only reason they took the hit is cuz Scott Beason, et all, didn't think of it first. Also, maybe cuz either everyone in Bama is either gay or their brother or sister is (too). Also, Dr. Dr. Bentley – well, the gays go to church, probably his church, so they are his brothers and sisters too. Does that make him gay as well?

I'd like to bitch slap everyone in NC, in honor of all my gay cousins and aunts, throughout the generations. And, fuck you Biltmore also.

littlebigdaddy May 12, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Haha, you nailed that one Fakakta. I used to live in NC and was all those things!

OT: Romney backs away from gay adoption
"But then on Friday, he was asked, in an interview with CBS' WBTV in Charlotte, N.C., how his opposition to same-sex marriage "squared" with his support for gay adoptions. Romney told anchor Paul Cameron, "Well actually I think all states but one allow gay adoption, so that's a position which has been decided by most of the state legislators, including the one in my state some time ago. So I simply acknowledge the fact that gay adoption is legal in all states but one.""

And he manages to say the youngs are too stupid to know how banking works in the same interview. Mr. Popularity!

In St Louis, the capital city of Third World America (useful public education a distant memory, public works in ruins, everybody's black or Catholic and plays soccer), the justification for why everything's so rotten is, "At least we're better than Jefferson County," which is the exurban county to the south of STL. It once had a sewage treatment plant but the denizens thought it was a communist plot and wouldn't hook up to sewers, so they shut it down.

In Jefferson City (capital of MO, in case you didn't know), they apologize for everything by saying, "At least it's not as bad as Arkansas." In Little Rock, they look down on Mississpi.

If Romney wins, we'll all be able to say, "At least it's better than Uz-becky-becky-stan-i-stan."

SayItWithWookies May 12, 2012 at 11:54 am

My nickname for Arkansas? North Louisiana.

Negropolis May 12, 2012 at 11:28 pm

One half of my family has roots in Arkansas, and let me tell you that they wish they were Louisiana.

Beanball May 12, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I lived in Misery for 8 unfortunate years. As a native Californian, it was culture shock to the max (I lived in Lebanon and later "escaped" to Kansas City). Both are unutterable shit holes and yes, the people there looked down on Arkansas.

Mississippi must be Dante's Hell on Earth.

Designer_Rants May 12, 2012 at 5:12 pm

I drove through and stayed the night in Arkansas recently. Of the 7 or 8 states we drove through on our way to the Alabama coast, it was the shittiest for travelling. They have these things I'd never come across before, and wouldn't believe any government would've done it if I hadn't experienced it first hand. I call them "Suicide Ramps". They're these on/off ramps for an interstate highway that within about a hundred feet, merge (no stop sign, just a yield) onto a 2 way street. "Pull & Pray" might also be an apt name.

Let me reiterate: You pull off going, say, 60mph ACROSS a 2-way frontage road and merge onto it, hoping you don't get side swiped, rear ended, head on-ed — because those people don't have a stop sign, and neither do you. Anyone ever seen a Figure 8 Race? It's like that.

Also gotta say, MS and LA were delightful to drive through on their interstates, compared to some other states.

V572 Is this him? May 12, 2012 at 6:05 pm

MissTaken May 12, 2012 at 11:10 am

To be able to use Mississippi in a disparaging way on a popular vote in her own state is, I think, something that’s certainly true and something we would reflect on if only our state would remember where it left it's thinking cap at back in the 1800's.

V572 Is this him? May 12, 2012 at 11:16 am

What blog-readers really want to talk about is jobs and the economy. When we get into office and get rid of job-killing Obamacre and reduce regulations, the economy will come back.

Dearest Imogene,

We arrived LAX last night and the car was waiting to take us to the consulate. Bored to tears with my briefing papers, I thought I would have a peek at my predecessor's search history on the Excec. computer. (The terms of his dismissal were quite clear that he should leave everything as it was.) He was not a bad fellow, though deep into the bottle, and he seems to have spent an inordinate amount of time viewing an American site called 'Wonkette' of all things. I'm sure it was innocent enough, but I shall monitor the site for a while, and try to determine if it sheds any light on his unfortunate unraveling, though after all, what harm could it do?

Hug the children for me,

Mort_Sinclair May 12, 2012 at 11:29 am

Continues to boggle my mind why Massachusetts isn't simply collapsing under the weight of intelligent, progressive, thoughtful people moving here looking for a half-way decent place to live. WTF! C'mon up! The water's fine!

biblioteq_tress May 12, 2012 at 11:44 am

Our winters suck, Mort. Sorry, but it is true.

Mort_Sinclair May 12, 2012 at 11:59 am

Well, what with global climate change, this winter may be the New Winter…. We certainly can't complain this year, can we?

biblioteq_tress May 13, 2012 at 10:32 am

This year was lovely, true. It was so nice to have a spring, and not just a spontaneous melt on June 3 when the snow turns to mud and we jump from 30 to 80 degrees.

biblioteq_tress May 12, 2012 at 11:53 am

Mort, remember when Mittens spent the last year of his "governorship" smacktalking Mass across this great country? To the point that Kerry Healy had to do one of those republican-non-apology apology things when she ran against Deval. And remember how, during his tenure, the Massachusetts Republican Party actually shrank, going from teensy tiny to absolutely cryptorchid?

I'd like to thank Mitt for, if not increasing the intelligent progressive population of MA, at least reducing the whiny wingnut contingency & scaring most away from crossing the border into Lawrence.

Mort_Sinclair May 12, 2012 at 12:03 pm

In the earlier stages of the Republican primary season when I was telling folks not from around here that if given enough time, Mittens would reveal his true self, the true self we all came to despise. They never believed me. Now they get it. Heh.

biblioteq_tress May 13, 2012 at 10:37 am

The slight bit of optimism I feel is based on that– we now will have 6 months of Romney being Romney, something I suspect even Ann Romney can barely tolerate (hence all the homes). I expect he may grate on the nerves of the American public as much as he did on us.

Mort_Sinclair May 13, 2012 at 10:53 am

And Romney's serious and substantial shortcomings–his tendency to go off-script, his lack of empathy, his haughty paternalism, his nasty streak when he's rattled, his propensity to resort to ad hominem when cornered–will all be on full display. Imagine Mittens in a debate with Obama. Pass the popcorn.

HistoriCat May 12, 2012 at 9:23 pm

Property values. Most of the shithole states we would like to escape from have low property values – so even if we managed to sell our homes, we could never afford to live in a high-value area like Massachusetts.

biblioteq_tress May 13, 2012 at 10:40 am

Sadly true. Hey, bring a sleeping bag and you can crash on my living room floor for a while! We still have room– our Irish relatives haven't started coming back yet although, given the state of the Irish economy, we anticipate having a kitchen filled with 17 year old construction workers and landscapers from Cork for the next few summers. Here's your chance!

randcoolcatdaddy May 12, 2012 at 11:34 am

Mississippi's just jealous because North Carolina's getting more attention for it's bigotry than Mississippi is. The state's been working hard for years to bring up its exports of talented people looking to get the hell out of that pigsty, now North Carolina is stealing their thunder.

biblioteq_tress May 12, 2012 at 11:43 am

CAN WE GET A SHOUT OUT FROM NEW JERSEY? Where's Jersey in all this? I want C. Christie front-and-center reminding NC that even though Jersey isn't full of Rascal-riding bigots rolling into the voting booths, NJ can suck too. If "Jersey Shore" gets cancelled, people may forget.

"DO NOT dis slaw on pulled pork! That's how Jesus wanted us to eat it! On Sunbeam bread with a side of bread&butter pickles."
Exactly, correct.

I made a furious facebook post ranting out the stupidity of North Carolina, and completely forgot a large portion of my family on my dad's side lives there and don't like being called "dim". It was a mistake I will never make again. Anyway, as an Alabama resident, I'm just grateful we haven't quiiite gotten there yet… while i drive to TN to buy lotto tickets and fill out medical forms to prove I need this giant dildo to "improve my health"

So has anybody asked Tennsee if it feels left out?

Of all the Dem governors in reddish or purple states over the last decade or so, I've always felt the most consistent pity for Bev Perdue. She has put up with so much shit, and it's nothing short of amazing that she was able to win her office in the first place.

Bev Perdue's apology: Let me put this in simple words, so that you may understand. I'm sorry you bass-ackwards, cousin-fucking, 50th-in-everything rednecks took offense. I sincerely apologize.

I feel terrible for even snarking, Mississippi has nice, nice…beaches? And the citizens are so, so…nice? At least you're not, not…Puerto Rico?

The saddest part of the article is when it says she has already decided not to seek reelection. The headline should read: "North Carolinians Elect Dem Governor, Governor Flees State in Revulsion".
