anger managementMembers of the Michigan legislature are expected to behave in a manner that is becoming, not only of the dignity and responsibility of their high office, but of the people they represent.

That’s why the Honorable Frank Foster, member of the Michigan House of Representatives, did the only gentlemanly thing possible when Michigan Nurses Association staffer Julia Smith-Heck wouldn’t stop mowing her lawn while Foster was a guest in Smith-Heck’s neighborhood last month: he called her a cunt. As a matter of fact, Foster shouted “you’re a cunt” from across the street.

Like a gentleman!

It just so happens that Foster and Smith-Heck have divergent viewpoints on collective bargaining. But that’s just a coincidence and probably has nothing to do with Foster’s shouty, vulgar outburst. It really was about someone intolerably mowing their own lawn.

And that’s a lesson for those temper-tantrum throwing, unstable, probably mensey, lady Representatives Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown.

If you dames can’t refer to your lady parts by appropriate euphemisms (i.e. cunt) instead of the highly-offensive anatomically correct terms like vaginas, then you should just shut your traps. [Eclectablog]

    Smegma-head needs a timeout.

  • Reginald_Perrin

    Give the douche-bag a break, at least he didn't use the foul word vagina.

    • The lady person whom he graced with this epithet (I personally LIKE the word, and as far as I'm concerned it's an honest old English word, and there's nothing derogatory about it, but I know this schmuck doesn't agree with me) is actually contacting the Michigan Speaker of the House — yes, the dude who gaveled two women Reps into silence for using the foul word "vagina" — to demand an apology from this schmuck. Will she be surprised when he calls her a cunt, too?

  • Love the "greed is good" hair.
    (I thought he had a stupid mole too, but then I cleaned off my screen.)

        That's because he just took off the white hood.

      • Rotundo_

        I noticed that *after* I noticed that he appears to have a proceeding hairline. Judging by the point on that, he should be down to eye level in a couple of years. AHOOOOO! Werewolves of the U.P. AHOOOO!!!

        I wouldn't want to meet his tailor.

        • And his hair was perfect.

        • Maybe Warren was a man foresighted, and he foresaw this schmuck someday deserving this song.

    And, until now, I didn't think it was possible for a man to be a cunt. Live and learn…

    • If cunt is used as a derogatory term, then, yes, most men are cunts. So are a few women.

    • dancesw_cougars

      This Frank Foster guy, Rand Paul, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh – I can't think of a single woman who is a bigger cunt than any one of these guys.

  • DaSandman

    Funny, that bitch looks like the kind of repressed freak who would have gone with "gash"

    • ibwilliamsi

      The sound of "Gash" doesn't carry as well across the street and over the sound of a lawnmower. "Cunt" is the appropriate word in that case. "Gash" or "slit" can be used in the Senate Chamber where there's better acoustics.

      • OneDollarJuana

        And "hole" is ambiguous.

  • jakegittes

    The wimmin in Michigan oughta take a cue from Igor Stetkeywecz and just shut their traps, pie-holes and their c**nts, too. Also.

  • Local_Mojo

    Well, I like cunts a lot. People often wish me well by saying: "Get fucked!" Maybe he didn't realize that it can be considered a derogatory term.

    • Me too. How could it possibly be insulting to call someone a name that refers to a warm, moist, heavenly, tasty, lickable … brb.

      "When reached at home Rep. Frank Foster, or as he is more affectionately known, 'F.U. Foster', said, "I did not use that derogatory slang "C" word referring to part of the female anatomy that starts with a 'V'. I was only telling her, 'Its Frank Luntz that is helping us sell the 'Protect Our Jobs' Act, you ignorant twat!'. Then as I walked back to the neighbor's house with the 3 year old boy I informed him, 'Prince Fielder cannot f*cking bunt, you little prick! Now, Eddie Gaedel, that runt just stood there like a candyass piece of shit holding that bat without so much as a grunt. Now get the f*ck home to your mom, little shit. I gotta go feed my autistic kid who lives in the f*cking basement digging tunnels around the f*cking neighborhood."

      • Barb

        That is a classic rant, thanks!

      • tessiee

        Wait, so *which* one was the guy who caught the ball like he was buying a newspaper at the corner store?

    • tessiee

      And he did it in front of a 3 or 4 year-old boy."

      Thank God.
      It's important to teach all kids that Mommy is a stupid bitch, but *especially* boys; otherwise they might grow up into pansies instead of wife-beaters.

  • badgitator

    Well, I am *so* sure that Mr. Foster will likewise be subject to an indefinite speaking ban just like that mean old 'vagina' lady.

  • NorthStarSpanx

    Wasn't the Michigan House Floor where they gagged a female lawmaker for saying "Vagina?"

    Vaginal probes and cunt are certainly a more respectable and preferable use of verbiage when it comes to matters and concerns of half the population.

    • Yup. And the Speaker of the House, the dude who gaveled those two female Reps into silence and banned them, is the same dude who this nice LayDee is requesting ask this asshole up here for an apology. Chances are he'll call her a dumb cunt himself.

  • Arken

    The article linked says that his official bio mentions nothing about him having any children, then he goes and produces one and claims the kid is autistic… what the hell?

    • Fare la Volpe

      I really think there's some RNC service out there that finds photogenic, Lifetime-original-movie-disabled children that are perfect to wave in front of a camera when you get caught looking like a dick.

    • tessiee

      He had to go down the basement and get him make his wife go down the basement and fetch him.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      I wonder which of the two is really the autistic one.

      • Neither. Autistic people are less likely to indulge in casual swearing than most, and the kid would've been freaked by the whole encounter if he *was* autistic. I suspect this asshole just borrowed the lady and kid from the house he was visiting.

        Of course, by even replying to a comment that was a casual snark, I have now revealed *myself* to be on the spectrum, but hey, you probly guessed that already.

    • It's a Foster child. HAHAHAHAHA! I crack myself up sometimes.

      • Apparently, also at least nine other people, too. Also.

    • NYNYNYjr

      So no mention of kids officially, sounds like that other politician, from Staten Island who kept a secret other family in Virginia? Maybe? Also, Chase? Is that a name a person who really give a child? Unlikely. I wish Rep. Brown had used the word cunt instead of vagina in the House. That would have rocked.

      • Arken

        There's a football player named Chase something. I don't know much about football, but I thought his name was fitting for his job.

    • mwittier

      Autistic from all of the lawn mowing.

      Hope that cunt's happy now.

  • calliecallie

    Michigan has one of the highest-paid, full-time state legislatures in the country, along with the strictest term limits in the country. You can see the kind of quality folk that are attracted to the job.

    And for two years they have stood in the way of a big international bridge project that the Governor is finally moving forward on – without them! Most of these state legislators are not only rude, stupid and misogynistic, they are now irrelevant.

    • Fare la Volpe

      That's the bridge that Canada has offered to pay for in full, but is being blocked by a super rich dick who wants to get the exclusive contract for the construction. My Detroit-born friend says this guy intentionally shut down the Detroit rail just to decrease property values and to "show people how awful Detroit really is."

      • not that Radio

        Does he also stab people with knives in order to "show them how awful open wounds really are"?

        • sullivanst

          Sounds like an idea for his neighbors, if any are reading…

          • sullivanst

            Uh, yeah, uh, no, uh, y'know, I was just saying how… uh… y'know… how I could imagine that his neighbors might sometimes think something like that. Yeah, that was it. Y'know, because freedom.

          • OhNoGuy

            Change "stab" to "shoot" and I think you're standing your ground with your Second Amendment RIghts. Can a Constitional expert confirm this?

        • Sounds like the kind of person who would, don't he?

  • Hera Sent Me

    You should know it won't end well if you use foul language when talking to a person whose very surname contains a euphemism.

    That cunt.

  • mavenmaven

    Well, if it were Texas he would have driven across the street with a gun yelling "I am standing my ground" and killed everyone, so there's some consolation there for Michigan.

    • NYNYNYjr

      "Do you mind if I stand my ground in your lawn for a minute?"

    • mwittier


    • I believe a Michigander commenter recently informed me that his/her state *does* have a Stand Your Ground law.

    • TexasFemale

      Actually, if Foster had done that in Texas gentlemen from the neighborhood would have "convinced" him to apologize to the lady and probably seen to it that he finished cutting her lawn.

  • sati_demise

    I hear yelling this word means you have a tiny, tiny- teeny tiny- dick.

    Is this true? Cunt envy?

  • not that Radio

    Frank Foster's website has a form where he invites us to "send someone a Certificate of Recognition", which will presumably be awarded by the Legislature.. There's no reason why we couldn't recommend Frank Foster for a Certificate of Recognition, for being such a cunt. Warblog?

    • Hera Sent Me

      I took your most excellent suggestion:

      "I'd like Frank Foster to be recognized for being a liar (his bio says he has no children, he told Julia Smith-Heck he has a son) and for being a misogynist cunt."

      For my address, I used the Michigan GOP HQ.

      • Negropolis

        Which is funny, because it's an unusually liberal city, not just for Michigan put in the country, at large. This city was one of the first to basically decriminalize use of marijuana (1970), elected the first Muslim in Michigan (1979) to their city council, the first city in the state to pass a living wage ordinance in the 90's, and one of the few cities in the state in the 90's to pass a human rights ordinance.

        I've seen a lot of people ragging on the state, but I'd like to reiterate that apart from very recently, while Michigan may have it's fair share of bigots and general ne'er-do-wells, these folks are have generally not been awarded with power because of their views, whereas entire political parties in some states aren't afraid to run on their bigotry. If they get into power, here, it's generally been through deception or in individual districts.
