Beloved ‘Let’s Hurl Acid At Them Demcrat Gals’ Staffer Resigns

by Jim Newell

PERSONThe dumbest political campaign spokesman in history has resigned, but why? Probably because he’s the dumbest political campaign spokesman in history, but more likely because of Reverse Sexism. When Jay Townsend, spokesperson for Rep. Nan Hayworth’s reelection campaign, said “Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators,” who was there to stand up for the male point of view — that female Democratic Senators should have acid hurled at themselves and just deal with it? No one. This War on Men needs to stop, before more assholes like Jay Townsend lose their asshole jobs.

The Hayworth campaign announced the resignation today and asked the public to focus on the real issues, instead of her employees who fap to burning female flesh. From The Hill:

The campaign adviser who suggested that opponents “hurl some acid at those female Democratic senators” has resigned from the congressional campaign of Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.).

“Jay Townsend has offered, and I have accepted, his resignation from his position with my campaign,” Hayworth said in a statement. “Now let’s return to talking about issues that really matter to families: job creation, spending restraint and economic development.”

Townsend will now focus his efforts on chemically maiming liberal women in the private sector.

It took almost a week. Nan Hayworth must have been porking the little slime

nounverb911 June 4, 2012 at 2:38 pm

Pink Slime?

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 2:42 pm

He looks more pasty white, like the smegma under a foreskin.

Terry June 4, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Or he had photos of her with the cabana boy.

OneYieldRegular June 4, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Seriously. One of your employees makes a comment like that and it takes you a week to take disciplinary action? At this rate, that pothole isn't going to be fixed until 2666.

gullywompr June 4, 2012 at 2:39 pm

Another victim of political correctness.

Gratuitous World June 4, 2012 at 2:44 pm

and then they came for the acid-throwing spokemen

Serolf_Divad June 4, 2012 at 2:55 pm

…and by the time they came for me, there were no misogynistic anti-social psychopaths left to speak up.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Please gawd, so mote it be.

starfanglednut June 4, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Hi Z!

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 4, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Hopefully, most right-wing media centers will agree that his resignation was smart, even if it means he was being a pussy.

gullywompr June 4, 2012 at 2:48 pm

I doubt very much they will mention it at all.

Callyson June 4, 2012 at 2:54 pm

No, they'll mention it and then say that Democrats are hypocrites because Maher/"never worked a day in her life"/whatever other person with no power over policymaking said something remotely insulting to a conservative female has not resigned. Enough with those double standards, libtards!

Serolf_Divad June 4, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Only if they can't find some Democratic spokesperson who said the same thing about Republican legislators. If they do then they'll mention them both, just to show that "both sides do it."

Mittens Howell, III June 4, 2012 at 3:20 pm

Let whoever hasn't splashed a little acid in someone's face throw the first vial of acid.

Hang on a minute …

SayItWithWookies June 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm

He's resigning in order to spend more time with his hydrogen ions.

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 2:43 pm

I thought that was nitrous he was rolling around in the tank behind him

Blueb4sunrise June 4, 2012 at 2:49 pm

H.I.C.I. LIBEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

noodlesalad June 4, 2012 at 2:52 pm

That's pretty low (pH)

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:05 pm

There's no need to be so sour.

Estproph June 4, 2012 at 3:08 pm

That's no base accusation!

HA!

Heh.

Hm.

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 3:16 pm

We definitely could use mole chemistry jokes around here.

You lye!

Chick-Fil-Atheist™ June 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Let this fuck go. He's full of bluster and bullshit, and we know this because it would take balls to assault a woman like that.

ibwilliamsi June 5, 2012 at 8:38 pm

I was kind of hoping he'd be full of blisters.

bumfug June 4, 2012 at 2:42 pm

He's going to spend more time with his horribly disfigured family.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Or horribly *disfiguring* his family. We have no reports yet on what they currently look like.

Limeylizzie June 4, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Comment of the day, if I say so myself, and I do.

bumfug June 4, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Why, thank you!

starfanglednut June 4, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Ghastly. But brilliant, so I upfisted you.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 2:44 pm

“Now let’s return to talking about issues that really matter to families: job creation, spending restraint and economic development. disenfranchising minorities, taking away women's control over their bodies, and overfunding the defense industry.”
Fixed that for you, Nan.

MosesInvests June 4, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Could we stop calling it the *defense* industry already? It's the military industry, or the war machine. There is damn little about it that's related to defense.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 3:11 pm

I used to tell people that I work for Death From Above Directorate of the Department of Aggression, especially when Rumsfeld was my boss.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:41 pm

I think if we met without knowing who the other individual was, we'd amuse each other to death.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Isn't that what's happening right here at Wonkette?

noodlesalad June 4, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I hear Herman Cain is looking for a hilarious side-kick for his new radio programme. And by hilarious I mean mind-wrenchingly misogynistic.

Jay Townsend lands a job as head camp counselor at Rightytighty Camp for Boyz in 3, 2, 1…

Limeylizzie June 4, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Is that the one that AZ. Sec of State's son attended? Camp Buggery?

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 4:25 pm

I can't even tell which one it is, anymore,but some fine upstanding young scion of one of our ruling families apparently spent quite a bit of time buggering young boys and was never investigated or punished. Was it in AZ?

ibwilliamsi June 5, 2012 at 8:39 pm

No doubt.

BarackMyWorld June 4, 2012 at 2:45 pm

“Now let’s return to talking about issues that really matter to families: job creation, spending restraint and economic development.”

Let's also be sure to talk about how one of these three things doesn't help the other two. Her statement is yet another fine example of "Obama hasn't done enough to help the economy that the government shouldn't interfere in!" logic.

NorthStarSpanx June 5, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Well, this muted statement is a relief compared to the Acid Libel video she was prepared to share online.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 2:46 pm

There's room to move as an acid-hurler in Afghanistan, Jay.

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 2:50 pm

He's formic an exploratory committee to review his options

emmelemm June 4, 2012 at 3:30 pm

At first I was like "What?" and then I was like "Oh."

It is a good one, I'm just dumb.

Lionel[redacted]Esq June 4, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Rep. Nan Hayworth went on to say "Let's leave this rhetoric behind, get out there, rape those bitches, and shove coat hangers up their lady parts!"

CapeClod June 4, 2012 at 3:29 pm

"Then when we're finished, call them sluts."

Callyson June 4, 2012 at 2:52 pm

FOX News contract for this asshole in 3…2…1…

EatsBabyDingos June 4, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Tde Nugent probably needs a spokeslizard.

pinkocommi June 4, 2012 at 2:54 pm

The acid-hurling comment poignantly reveals how close the Republitard Party is to the Taliban.

SheriffRoscoe June 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Should have allowed some of that creeping Sharia Law to creep.

OneYieldRegular June 4, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Fighting terrorism over there so that it can be practiced by inept Republican political spokespersons over here.

ttommyunger June 4, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Are you Blue, Jay? You look more like Woody Woodpecker. Could this motherfucker be any whiter? I think not.

EatsBabyDingos June 4, 2012 at 2:55 pm

He's qualifieid to fling poo at the Bronx Zoo. I think.

Come here a minute June 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Nan Hayworth needs to find a female spokesman who will advocate throwing acid on lady Senators.

pinkocommi June 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

To be fair, the "hurl acid" comments sound even worse in context.

4TheTurnstiles June 4, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Isn't Facemelter Acid for Uppity Dames ™ the last advertiser standing on the Rush Limbaugh Show?

emmelemm June 4, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Massive insult to lesbians, man. {alt-text}

noodlesalad June 4, 2012 at 3:07 pm

For real, that alt text needs to go.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Srsly. Gay Laydee friends are SO not gonna like this.

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Massively

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:14 pm

Ima bout to throw some acid at Jim.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I'll hold him, you deliver a few swift kicks to his testicles instead. About 20 should do it. Wear your steel-toe boots.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I'm actually wearing titanium toed boots right now. Because I'm a massive lesbian.

MoeDeLawn June 4, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Geez. They already get to hit from the forward tees. They want respect, too?

SheriffRoscoe June 4, 2012 at 3:20 pm

I try to keep it PC as possible and refer to us/them as gentlemanfags and ladyfags.

widestanceromance June 4, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Did he lift this alt-text from a Breitbart site or what?!?

And after an hour, it's still up. . .FTW?

emmelemm June 4, 2012 at 3:26 pm

Oy, honestly, I wasn't trying to throw shade directly at Newell. Just pointing out that the lesbians don't want this cretin either.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:34 pm

What's a little shade between friends?

That alt-text comment is not funny, it's offensive and silly and pointless. It must go.

emmelemm June 4, 2012 at 4:29 pm

Fair enough.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Wait. Offensive and silly and pointless are no longer funny? LET MY PEOPLE GO!!!!

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Now, now, Booj. As a student of rhetoric, you know quite well that that was not what I said. I never said offensive and silly and pointless are no longer funny. I said THIS alt-text comment was not funny. And also that it was offensive, silly, and pointless, of course.

Jim Newell June 4, 2012 at 5:56 pm

Fuck you it stays

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Well, fuck you too, then, Jim.

Jim Newell June 4, 2012 at 6:00 pm

no but seriously, i don't care.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:28 pm

So get rid of it then. Make the lesbians massively happy, and their gay boyfriends also.

Jim Newell June 4, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Alright, I'll change it, because I'm a nice person, but let it be known that it is a sad day when Wonkette can no longer call people lesbians arbitrarily, for no reason.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:37 pm

Aw, c'mon, Jim, you can ALWAYS call people lesbians arbitrarily for no reason or any reason at all. You just can't call *this* asshole a massive lesbian, 'cause the Lesbo Laydeez of Wonketz already said they don't want him. They got rights too.

Besides, you wanna complain, take it up with the Editrix. She's the one who made this a Mommyblog and made us all promise to stop calling certain speshul people Speshul and stuff. If we have to behave, then you do too.

Sassomatic June 4, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Why do the ladies have to get so upset about this kind of thing? "Hurl acid" is just a quaint euphemism "treat them as property."

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:35 pm

You know how hysterical those gals get when they don't get an orgasm or two a week.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Just to change things up I say we douse this MoFo in Sodium Hydroxide.

weejee June 4, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Indeed! Down the Drain-o with 'em.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:08 pm

It's a very basic change.

George Skullfry June 4, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I think we should be sure to cover* all the bases.

*him in

Neoyorquino June 4, 2012 at 2:59 pm

10 months of looking for PR/communications employment, just for me to see fucktards like this guy in a position of responsibility. While it doesn't make me any more employed to see him out on his ass, the schadenfreude is a beautiful thing.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Here's hoping the Universe puts icing on your Schadenfreude Cake tomorrow by landing you a plum job!

ManchuCandidate June 4, 2012 at 3:00 pm

His comment somewhat ironic considering how basic the base he represents is.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 3:01 pm

I thought Jay Townsend was that black guy that made the funny noises in some bad comedy movies and Isuzu ads or whatever back in the 90s.

owhatever June 4, 2012 at 3:02 pm

“Now let’s return to talking about issues that really matter to families: job creation, spending restraint and economic development.”

No, let's talk about your former staff member who urged your supporters to throw acid the faces of women who have another political point of view. That's kind of important, as is why you did not fire him immediately rather than allowing him resign.

NorthStarSpanx June 5, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Gosh, there you go, looking back again and being distracted by sentiments expressing core values of my base. . .Acid Libel Nan Hayworth

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:02 pm

That alt-text is not cool, man. NOT COOL.

Serolf_Divad June 4, 2012 at 3:02 pm

What do you wanna bet 6 months from now, detectives bust into his hideout just as he's leaning over a pit yelling to the woman at the bottom "It puts the lotion on its face!"

Chichikovovich June 4, 2012 at 3:03 pm

“Now let’s return to talking about issues that really matter to families: job creation, …”

Very good. And perhaps we can discuss the fact that after repeating "Jobs, Jobs Jobs" like trained walruses right up until November 2010, the Republicans in the house have done absolutely zip, zero, nada, to create jobs since taking over. Including you, Rep. Hayworth.

fuflans June 4, 2012 at 5:27 pm

i said this elsewhere, but did you hear boehner last week.after that ridiculous 'gender anti abortion bill' was defeated?

he actually said 'we're very concerned about jobs and job creation and the economy BUT there are other pressing issues americans are worried about."

yes there certainly are. but it sure as hell isn't sex selection in the provision of abortions.

course non of this will stop us electing these asshats again.

BaldarTFlagass June 4, 2012 at 3:04 pm

No no no, he meant lysergic acid, because he wants them Democrat ladies to be trippin'.

Sassomatic June 4, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Bitches already be trippin'.

emmelemm June 4, 2012 at 3:28 pm

+1,000

Made me laugh.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I thought he meant deoxyribonucleic acid. I mean, it's done in all of his porn and the ladies love it!

actor212 June 4, 2012 at 3:09 pm

And in the end, the burns you get are equal to the burns you give.

qwerty42 June 4, 2012 at 3:11 pm

Yeah. He's going to get a job in the private sector. So he can threaten his co-workers. Maybe he'll be in the PR dept, because if there is any place you want people suggesting acid throwing it is in the PR dept. I mean, look at all the attention he got for his candidate this way.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 3:15 pm

I think he'd be a great HR manager.

qwerty42 June 4, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Maybe he could go into IT? They always talk about "executing", "bombs", "blew up", and such. A very violent world.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Listen, I once worked in a company where our UNIX sysadmins seemed to be all these Ted Kaczynski-type dudes with full beards, Birks, and a surprising collection of guns.

Estproph June 4, 2012 at 3:12 pm

Maybe when he said "acid" he means "LSD." That way, all the women with some self respect and IQs above … oh, say, toejam, would be trippin' balls* to the point they'd actually vote GOP.

It makes perfect sense!

What do you wanna bet this joker gets hired back as an "independent consultant"? Gotta keep those doors revolving if you want to own instead of just rent a place in the Hamptons.

LagunaB June 4, 2012 at 3:42 pm

As a white women, I have experienced an insidious pernicious assault by white men over the last couple of months. And this last weekend put me over the top in terms of putting up with this shit. So my new rule is, guys have 30 seconds to be decent humidoids. If they start with their crap – I hit them or whatever deems appropriate. Yeah, I am done with this shit.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:33 pm

Hey you're back, I was wondering about you. How you doin?

LagunaB June 4, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Spring is my busy time. Summer should be. Except. For a certain asshole not this one coming up. Was driving south on the autobahn (95 between DC and Richmond) 4 hours into a 12 hour drive and was rear ended going 80. VA is conseal-carry laws so I was *nice*. No damage. Got to fitness convention and was verbally attacked by union drayage personage about Nancy Pelosie. WTF? Why? Because I had a tee shirt that said California Surf Company. Also too, an Obama 2012 on my car which I had forgotten about. Done. Done. Done. I know, I know, I know. But in my own defense my job is forecasting the trends that are happening to ascertain buying patterns to plan production needs. So. I am hype aware. I have to plan a year in advance to get the product in the stores.
You back in the US?

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 8:09 pm

Yup, been back a few weeks now. Nice to see you and catch up, take it easy out there, we need ALL our good people to hang on as long as they can.

OK. I didn't say this the first time this karacter showed up on the Wonkettes, but after seeing the pic twice now …

Right then. As you were …

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:34 pm

I was actually starting to like you there, for a bit.

Now I'll have nightmares about Howdy Fucking Doody. Thanks a lot.

a_pink_poodle June 4, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I'm disappointed on Rep. Nan Hayworth's lack of leadership on the important issue of acid throwing rights.

JustPixelz June 4, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Throw acid on female legislators, throw women's health care under the bus, it's all in a day's work for Nan — one of today's Repubican Go-Getter-Gals.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 4:45 pm

OK, now I will vomit.

Funny how they want to concentrate on jerbs when a social issue bites them in the ass, and on social issues whenever anybody expects them to actually create jobs.

lulzmonger June 4, 2012 at 5:16 pm

"Let’s hurl some acid at those female democratic Senators who won’t abide the mandates they want to impose on the private sector"

Vitriolic remark is vitriolic.

speaking as – until recently – a long term unemployed female american, i wish jay all the best in his job search and hope he enjoys his massively reduced unemployment benefits.

bamaguy1024 June 5, 2012 at 9:24 am

Why is it that GOP lunatics constantly use references to violence, like Sarah Palin's infamous gunsites targeting Democrats, and Ted Nugent suggesting use of guns to solve political problems and now this incredible ugly suggestion that GOP members throw battery acid on Democratic opponents, OMFG what is happening here?!

Limeylizzie June 4, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I am massively bi-curious, well, in your case and Rachel Maddow's.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 4:19 pm

Well, then, honey bunches o' girl, get your ass over to Newell's tout-suite, then! Srsly, that sounds SO fucking butch. I love my butch girls so.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Baldar, my friend, you know quite well we provoke each other and joust, here in the hothouse.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Aw, now I'm blushing. But don't worry, I'll be gentle with you. BTW I am much better looking than Jay "massive lesbian" Townsend. But we might want to hurry because I will probably be banned from here after I show up at Jim's in my boots.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Soft butch, but mostly just safety conscious.

starfanglednut June 4, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Me too!

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Let's not tell Newell that part, OK? Just tell him I'm there to hold him and you're there to exercise your quads.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 4:37 pm

That sounds fabulously gay. Pics or GTFO.

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 4:44 pm

As far as Newell is concerned I am a 300lb former weightlifting world champion and expert skullfucker.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 5:13 pm

It does, doesn't it? This will have to do for now, I'm afraid.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 5:17 pm

You bring out the beast in me.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Didjew jist call me a communist, sayin' I was capable of lurnin' and studyin' 'n such? And who is this rhetoric guy, anyway? Is HE one of them lebanese women, too?

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Hey, pretty lady! (Hugs the girl) It's cold and rainy and freezy out here and I am Resting My Arm. It's actually feeling a bit better. And how you?

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Nothing like a gal who jump-starts her vibrator.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:27 pm

Lebanese? I'll have to use that as my next Euphemism-of-Choice. Nothing like arguing hairsplitting with a lawyer, my friend.

Boojum June 4, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I had a prospective juror use that once, in explaining why he distrusted corporate HR and would probably not be good to the other side. He started talking about how they gave special treatment to the lebanese women. When the judge realized what he meant, he nearly broke something trying not to laugh.

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 6:47 pm

I don't think I could manage that. I'd end up laughing my ass off and have to be forcibly dragged off the bench.

I'm sure you heard our dear Dok StrangeZoom's story about the assburgers? If not, you have a treat in store.

Your wing still hurts? Make sure to eat plenty of seeds, and no flying for a week. I'm good. I wrote an essay that won a scholarship! Oh and my tmj is acting up. Ain't getting old grand?

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Yeah, it's pretty inflamed. can't really raise arm above shoulder. Tore the rotator cuff some years ago, and periodically the injury gets inflamed. Seeds, eh? Got that.

Congrats on your scholarship! If you were here, I'd give you a jaw and neck massage to celebrate. Consider yourself virtually massaged, and given congratulatory hugs!

BigSkullF*ckingDog June 4, 2012 at 7:18 pm

/ I'M KIDDING

I LOVE tamales, baby. Tell you what, I'll eat TWO for you, and one for me, and then we'll be even. (Hugs the girl)

MittBorg June 4, 2012 at 8:29 pm

I don't get the train reference, so I'll just smile and nod a lot, like I usually do when I can't hear what other people are saying.

Gold stars sewn on clothing, trains, Zyklon B…. btw, I'm not even Jewish.

I SAID I WAS KIDDING. Plus, I just Godwined myself, didn't I?

I got a case of Casa Sanchez chips and Gaffeo's coffee sent to me at Xmas. But. The real SF foods. I am dying for. My sister has Coast Roast Organic coffee in Tomales. And I can get Peets. But nothing beats SF, except for maybe Paris or Istanbul for fresh great food.

Oy, gevalt, oy vey is mir, and I should have picked that up immediately. Normally, my radar is supersensitive on behalf of any oppressed people.

(Hugs emm) It's OK. You did say you were just kidding. I'm thick as two short bricks today. I blame it on the weather and also pain meds.

True dat. I ran into a fellow Californian in Ozland while I was complaining about the state of the shitty produce. I was saying something about how the next time I heard someone complain about "Messcans" or "illegal immigrants" I would stick a zucchini up their ass and tell them they should thank a migrant worker that it was so clean and healthy and not-spiny, when this cute young guy looked over at me and said, "Oh, yeah, we're spoiled to hell and back in CA.," and we talked about the wonderful farmers' markets and groceries and restaurants.

Damn, we're spoiled.

Totally.

Replying to poor, forgotten thread, but: If you'd said you were putting a gold foil star sticker next to my name up on the blackboard, that would be one thing. But you're pinning it right on me? "What is this, I don't even…"

:)

Well, now, see, CRE_ature has this thing about handing out gold stars to people that s/he thinks are particularly witty or funny, and I (clumsily) trid to do the same, thinking, Oh, emmelemm is being so clever/witty/funny! I shall reward him/her with a Gold Star! Only to have it turn into some horrible debacle of a thing with Nazis and stuff, ya know?
