DIEBOLD STRIKES AGAIN  1:48 pm July 3, 2012

Saddest Lady In World Presses Wrong Button, Legalizes Fracking In North Carolina

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

burn baby burnAre you having a bad day? Well, unless you “accidentally” shot a hobo through the eye, your day is not as bad as that of North Carolina state Rep. Becky Carney, Democrat of Mecklenburg, who lobbied all her colleagues to kill the environmental catastrophe that is fracking, but then was the accidental deciding vote legalizing fracking in the state. Oh man. Remember the poor Palm Beach Jews who voted for Pat Buchanan and elected George W. Bush? This is like that but with earthquakes and water burning like it’s the Cuyahoga River.

Carney pointed out that she has voted against fracking in the past, and said she spent the day lobbying other Democrats to uphold the veto of Senate Bill 820.

“And then I push the green button,” she said.

Just after the vote, Carney’s voice could be heard on her microphone, saying “Oh my gosh. I pushed green.”

But did Carney immediately try to fix her mistake? Well of course she did, she’s not an idiot.

Carney said she turned her light on, but Speaker Thom Tillis would not recognize her, so she went to the front to speak to him.

“I made a mistake, and I tried to get recognized to change it, as people have been doing all night on other bills, and it was too late,” Carney said. “Because it would have changed the outcome of the vote.”

Fracking Diebold strikes again.

“I feel rotten, and I feel tired,” Carney said. “And I feel that mistakes are made constantly when people are tired. And I feel rotten about it, but I take responsibility for my vote.”

As soon as the vote was cast, House Minority Leader Paul Stam used a procedural move called a “clincher” to ensure the veto override could not be reconsidered.

What was that we always hear about mean old Harry Reid not allowing Republicans to add amendments to things (like Life Begins at Conception amendments to bills about flood insurance) because he hates the minority so much and is such an anti-democratic tyrant? Yes, that is worse than this times Hitler, we guess.

Then she left to go to Happy Hour, drank too much and blew a Chad.

coolhandnuke July 3, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Maybe she should be forced to blow the fine actor Red Buttons.

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 5:28 pm

At least it wasn't dangling for long.

nounverb911 July 3, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Just stick her in Sheriff Andy's jail in Mayberry and throw away the key.

Barb July 3, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Awww, rest in peace Andy Griffith.

Goonemeritus July 3, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Well I guess I will have to end my write in campaign to bring back Matlock.

Texan_Bulldog July 3, 2012 at 2:01 pm

A few rightie FB friends have posted on his death. They don't know that Andy was a card carrying Democrat all his life and he made an ad with Ron Howard for Barack Hussein Obama in 2008. I wonder how quick their posts would disappear if they knew that.

SheriffRoscoe July 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm

And lobbied for passage of the ACA, with tv ads. I shall miss Andy.

HoytClagwell July 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

He also starred in a movie that could have been a cautionary tale about the likes of Glenn Beck.

Chet Kincaid July 3, 2012 at 3:17 pm

Clearly, it was his medication.

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 2:05 pm

No one was making fun of Andy Griffith. I can't emphasize that enough

Barb July 3, 2012 at 2:16 pm

No, none of us are making fun of Andy. He is a much loved man.
Pop quiz, Soros.
What was the name of the tune that was whistled on the Andy Griffith show?

Goonemeritus July 3, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I agree he couldn’t have been a classier guy, I really did watch Matlock but mostly because I grew up with the Andy Griffith show.

Crank_Tango July 3, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Ahem. Too soon!

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Really? There are procedural rules where speed is more important than accuracy?

North Carolina…you're giving your sister to the South a run for the stoopid money.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Shit, the SCOTUS says there are procedural rules where death is more important than justice. This is piker shit.

Chill_Bill July 3, 2012 at 1:53 pm

This is what happens when you press the wrong motherfracking button.

stncmchnc July 3, 2012 at 3:08 pm

This is what happens Larry! This is what happens when you frack North Carolinians in the Appalacians.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:37 pm

For some reason, this sounds like it should be the line from some sitcom involving two gay guys.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

So green means cash money and red means your a commie and don't want to sell the countries natural resources to the highest bidder. Makes perfect sense to me.

anniegetyerfun July 3, 2012 at 1:59 pm

I honestly don't get how she even made the mistake. She's worse than 9/11.

emmelemm July 3, 2012 at 2:51 pm

It's like this one time, when one of the judges on Dancing With The Stars held up the wrong paddle, …

YES I WATCH DWTS. My mother makes me.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:38 pm

It might be time to have The Talk with Mom.

You know, the one where you tell them watching DWTS is one of the symptoms of early Alzheimer's or something.

emmelemm July 3, 2012 at 8:57 pm

My mom used to be a ballroom dancer. Not professional, but a serious amateur.

I can't talk her out of it. :)

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 9:06 pm

She sounds like she might be a nice Mom/human. Eh, WTH, make her happy, it's not that big a deal.

VA_Dreaming July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I wonder if Andy Griffith passes away out of embarrassment over what the North Carolina republicans are doing this year.

Goonemeritus July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Well even with flaming well water North Carolina can still take comfort in the fact that at least they aren’t Mississippi.

Ms_Anthrope July 3, 2012 at 2:56 pm

The state should accidently change its name to North Mississippi.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I know you heard Mississippi legislators bragging about how they were going to shut down the only abortion facility in that state, with the words (I paraphrase) "I'm told that some pitiful poor women won't be able to afford to go out of state and will do it at home with a coathanger, and could die as a result. But you have to have moral values."

What kind of "moral values" involve killing a woman who might be a mother and is almost certainly a daughter, sister, wife, lover, friend, colleague, and neighbour to your constituents? Or do Miss legislators only represent the rich?

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

"Yes, that is worse than this times Hitler, we guess"

No, these were Republicans abusing procedural rules to steal a vote; that's perfectly OK, just as a few Democratic filibusters were the worst subversion of democracy ever, but the GOP filibustering every single Senate vote is just a routine move that requires every bill to get a 60-vote supermajority and perfectly normal.

EatsBabyDingos July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Anyone with an "H" in "Tom" is pretentious and should be sentanced to life in North Carolina.

SheriffRoscoe July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Read the Constitution. You get one shot at the green button. Yes they had green buttons in 1776.

FakaktaSouth July 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Oh fuck this procedural bullshit in the ear. Are we in kindergarten? OH OH ! You touched it ! you touched it ! NO TAKE BACKS — Had she launched a missile I could see how this was irretrievable – but for fucks sake, it was a vote. Whatever. I'm totally drinking now, it's the fourth of July eve, a holiday for rednecks, and I am blowing some shit up. Patriotism my hot ass.

SheriffRoscoe July 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

We have to do everything possible to try to determine what the voter's intent was. In this case the voter could be asked directly, but time was up, too fucking bad.

SheriffRoscoe July 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

We have to do everything possible to determine what the voter's intent was. In this case the voter could be asked directly, but time was up, so too fucking bad.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Careful. There was a story in the Seattle times this morning about a dumb hick around here who blew up $80,000 of his community's fireworks display by accident while trying out his new rifle.

FakaktaSouth July 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm

I gotta admit, that sounds fucking awesome. Shootin up 80K of chinese wowzer lights and dynamite? Fuckin a baby, that's goin in the porno.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 3, 2012 at 2:04 pm

That can be part of the climax! Of the movie, that is. Ahem.

MOG2410 July 3, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Would give me one, heh.

Doktor Zoom July 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

I try not to be a proofreading Nazi, but this really is one of those times when you want to double-check the capitalization and punctuation, because "fuckin-A, baby" and "fuckin a baby" are rather different.

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I just a assumed it was a great new expression. I was going to start using it. dang

emmelemm July 3, 2012 at 2:53 pm

I… saw what she did there. Or did I?

Yes, I was confused.

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 5:35 pm

When it was over, only a smoking crater and the charred hulk of the container — which was propelled about 20 feet — marked the spot where everybody's Fourth of July plans used to be.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Shoulda done it in Wisconsin, the summer heat is making cars BOUNCE off the hot melting roads.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:44 pm

So, when does this hit the stands? Just asking for a, you know, friend.

anniegetyerfun July 3, 2012 at 2:13 pm

Technically, that was in Kitsap. Everyone in Kitsap is a dumb hick.

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Prima facie evidence: living in a town with a shitkicker name like Kitsap.

Gopherit July 3, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Marry me.

FakaktaSouth July 3, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Wouldn't you rather have sex and money and fun? Gotta pick just one or the other, ya know.

Gopherit July 3, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Yeah, what was I thinking?

Jus_Wonderin July 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Couldn't we treat this like the Luanne plate at Luby's?

HogeyeGrex July 3, 2012 at 2:47 pm

Better that than the Lutine Bell at Lloyd's.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:43 pm

Judging from your av, it is ONE HOT ASS, girl.

Yeah, this stuff has me seriously pie-eyed right now. This, Joe Walsh mocking Tammy Duckworth, those fucking dirtbags in Mississippi mocking all the "poor pitiful women" who can't afford to travel outside the state for an abortion and will shove a coathanger up their cunts, killing themselves in the process, by saying "We have to have moral values." Yup. Started drinkin' right away and I am gonna be dead on my ass drunk in about two hours, I figure.

ProgressiveInga July 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Shut the Frack Up!

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Today we are all green buttons.

Extemporanus July 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Today, we are all Red Buttons.

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Today, we are all fracked

Extemporanus July 3, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Don't make me get my Borscht belt, young man…

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Bible Belt libel!

HogeyeGrex July 3, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Or Red Green.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Duct tape rulez!

fartknocker July 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Apparently North Carolina legislators are not very tech-savvy. Maybe they need a system with a 3rd button marked "Are You Sure You Want To Do That?"

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 7:26 pm

And then a BSOD if the vote is wrong.

GorzoTheMighty July 3, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Demorats, does the incompetency ever quit. They are hopeless beyond redemption

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 2:10 pm

"It looks like you are trying to legalize fracking, would you like some help with that?"

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:51 pm

NO, NO, NO CLIPPY EVER AGAIN!! CLIPPY MUST DIE-IE-IE-IE-IEEEE!!

chascates July 3, 2012 at 1:57 pm

Worse than seven Hitlers. She should be forced to move to South Carolina.

Texan_Bulldog July 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Sounds like she'd fit right in in FL.

carolinaswamp July 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm

No, no, you know what it is already like here!!

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Sounds like an "Almost Live" sketch. It's a county btw.

sezme July 3, 2012 at 7:29 pm

You know who else was worse than seven Hitlers?

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:52 pm

My Mom?

YOUR Mom? (I hear she planted a foot on your Dad's chest after knocking him flat on his ass.)

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 1:58 pm

Well they don't call it North Carolina for nothing. Whatever that means. My head hurts.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 3:53 pm

North Carolina for nothing? The very idea. Nyah- you've got to pay to play there, just like anywhere else. Looks like the fracking would take place in Lee Co., just south of the Triangle area. I wouldn't be surprised if NIMBY-ism were to defeat this thing before it gets underway.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Let us pray.

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 11:29 pm

True. North Carolina was the second Carolina to declare war against the United States.

Billmatic July 3, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Democracy simply doesn't work!

Jus_Wonderin July 3, 2012 at 1:59 pm

It might be best to keep this woman away from the red phone and the launch code buttons.

Awful People July 3, 2012 at 1:59 pm

It's North Carolina. Accidental fracking just joins the list of sister-fracking, cousin-fracking, and of course, uncle-fracking.

johnnymeatworth July 3, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Shut your fracking face, uncle fracker….

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:53 pm

You're AWFUL … oh, wait. Never mind.

widestanceromance July 3, 2012 at 2:01 pm

So, does the governor sign bills with an upper case 'X' or a lower case 'x' to indicate agreement?

ManchuCandidate July 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm

As long as she isn't voting for Count Iblis, Feldergarb or the "Starbuck has a Penis" Amendment.

JustPixelz July 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Can we blame it on anti-seizure medication?

Green, red. What's the difference, officer?

"Oh my gosh. I pushed green." Considering the courtesy her colleagues then displayed, she probably should have just said "Jesus Fucking Christ! I pushed the wrong motherfucking button. Now I've got to get that cocksucker Thom Tillis to get off his knees long enough to fucking do his fucking job and fucking recognize me."

Jus_Wonderin July 3, 2012 at 2:09 pm

That rant is the perfect test text for the new synth voice I am trying to create. Thanks!

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Is that to replace Siri with Surly?

Jus_Wonderin July 3, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Yes, I plan to run it on my iMadd.

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Does that come with the special Trollface punchscreen?

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 5:37 pm

An imadd is what you need to comment on this site with an iPad.

Exhausted66 July 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

As long as she doesn't say, "vagina."

Chow Yun Flat July 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm

The proud tradition of the Democratic Party shooting itself in the foot continues.

TribecaMike July 3, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Color-blindness is no laughing matter, but clumsiness is.

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 3, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Green button, eh? Wait, isn't green the color of Islam? Where is Glenn Beck and his wipe board when we need him!!!

coolhandnuke July 3, 2012 at 2:14 pm

I might be mistaken, but her mistake could be ascribed to the small minority of North Cackalackeys who are indeed color blind.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:57 pm

I certainly hope so. She's pretty much destroyed her career, poor woman.

Although, from having lived with a colorblind person for six years, I know that they tend to figure out colours from position, i.e., the top light of a stop sign is GO and the bottom light is STOP. If she were colourblind, she should have had an aide do the button-pushing, or memorized the location of the Yes and No buttons.

An_Outhouse July 3, 2012 at 2:15 pm

and you guys want weed legalized …

Baconzgood July 3, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Fucking stupid.

rickmaci July 3, 2012 at 2:19 pm

FUBAR. Fracked up beyond any retraction.

Estproph July 3, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I can't believe she didn't hold onto the button until she was totally sure, just like in checkers.

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Erin Burnett would never make a rookie mistake like that.

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 2:20 pm

GREEN BUTTONS!!!!!

Extemporanus July 3, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I hope that *fracckkk!* you have *fracckkk!* better luck *fracckkk!* with that *fracckkk!* than I am. *fracckkk!* *fracckkk!* *FRAACCKKK!!*

Owww…

Jus_Wonderin July 3, 2012 at 2:26 pm

My Aunt Birdie used to press the wrong buttons…often. However, Uncle Gooch generally backhanded her and she toed the line.

Then Uncle Gooch, unexpectedly took his life.

We have always wondered: Who the fuck kills themselves with rat posion. Seems like it would take forever. But, oh well….

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Poor Aunt Birdie. You don't suppose … nah, she would never do that, would she?

UW8316154 July 3, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button?
[Stimpy reaches for the button; Ren slaps his hand away]

Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool!

Stimpy: So what'll happen?

Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Narrator: How can he possibly resist the maddening urge to erradicate history at the mere push of a single button? The beautiful, shiny button? The jolly, candy-like button? Will he hold out, folks? Can he hold out?

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Terry Pratchett is only one of many folks who have observed that is there were a secret cave somewhere, with a red button and a sign that said "END OF WORLD BUTTON. DO NOT PRESS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OR THE WORLD WILL END", the sign-writer would be trampled to death before finishing the sign.

Biff July 4, 2012 at 9:57 am

Heh. That was easy.

not that Radio July 3, 2012 at 2:30 pm

FrackNation, here we come!

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 7:31 pm

One nation, under a frack.

Hmm, lacks something.

orygoon July 3, 2012 at 2:31 pm

God, I know how the poor lady feels. That's sort of my life for the past some-fracking-number of year.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:00 am

(Hugs orygoon) My sympathies. I think I had a decade like that, once.

Exhausted66 July 3, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Well, now that Planned Parenthood has been defunded in NC, if you need an abortion you can just drink tap water.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Well, you MIGHT be able to drink it once the flames die down …

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 2:38 pm

There is truly nothing sadder than pressing the wrong button. And if you are wondering where exactly the *right* button is, it's about 2 inches above where you think it is.

Am I right, ladies, or am I right?

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 2:48 pm

Above?! Well that explains a lot.

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:51 pm

So it's not the "mute" button, but the "power off" one?

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Hey, some of us know where the right button is! It's on mens' shirts; the ones on womens' are on the left.

That's what you were talking about, right?

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Wait.

You ladies have buttons?!

sezme July 3, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Remember the poor Palm Beach Jews who voted for Pat Buchanan and elected George W. Bush? This is like that but with earthquakes and water burning like it’s the Cuyahoga River.

Right, but how is it different?

actor212 July 3, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Fewer Jews

Tyrannically_Joe July 3, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I would expect no less from a Buchanan administration.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Very well played.

arduinohacker July 3, 2012 at 2:51 pm

Fabulous choice of colors, SC. The most common form of color-blindness is red-green.

Although it's also a potential boost for female legislators, males are 12 times more likely to have it.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 3:59 pm

And in what state can you not tell the difference between SC & NC? I know, I know… All of the other ones, Katie…

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 9:03 pm

Most people don't realize that females can also suffer from colourblindness. And, red-green colourblindness being the commonest type, most women who are colourblind are red-green colourblind.

UnholyMoses July 3, 2012 at 2:52 pm

There is a word that would perfectly describe someone this stupid — someone with some sort of mental condition that makes them just a tad slower than most everyone else.

I just can't think of what that word is … begins with an "r" I believe …

**strokes chin thoughtfully**

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Well, normally it would be Republican, but this lady is allegedly a Democrat, so I dunno.

Oh wait, an NC Democrat.

Hillary voted for the war in Iraq, accidentally too!!!

Wyminz!!!?!!

Chet Kincaid July 3, 2012 at 3:23 pm

Later, at the Annual North Carolina State House Volleyball Challenge, Republicans scored the winning point on a technicality. Though the ball had been hit out of bounds, the GOP insisted Ms. Carney "went for it."

This story makes me angry.

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 9:58 pm

This is ALL that we pay them to do, and they can't even push a button right. We should outsource legislation to the local zoo. Koko the Gorilla would have more legislative stamina.

The energy execs are laughing their asses off. Even in their most nefarious plots could they have not dreamed up such a scenario.

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Well, unless you “accidentally” shot a hobo through the eye…

You realize that this would rank among the best/most positively memorable days of a conservative's life, right?

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

I guess she forgot the safe word.

We should so totally make "Oh my gosh. I pushed green" a thing here at these Wonkettes when we really fuck something up. Hell, I'm going to say it in my everyday life, now.

not that Radio July 3, 2012 at 11:47 pm

She was not allowed to correct her mistake, "because it would have changed the outcome of the vote."

Isn't the entire purpose of voting to "change the outcome of the vote"? Am I missing something here?

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 11:52 pm

Yes. You are missing that it was done by a DemonRat to Republicans, and therefore it was OK that they did it. It's not OK for her to whine about it. LOSER, duh.

TribecaMike July 4, 2012 at 12:13 am

Forget it Jake, it's Koch Town.

Accident? Not buying it. Nobody, no even a politician is that fucking stupid.

I know; it's a quote from Arrested Development, from the narrator – played by Ron Howard.

And I have no idea what the tune was; I could google it but then that would be cheating.

The Fishin' Hole.

I only know that because of when Married With Children used it and had to credit

Thanks for being honest.
Maybe someone else knows.

Were you in Married With Children? I hope that's not too pryful, I'm genuinely curious, but I will also admit to being a dreadful nosey parker. Feel free to tell me to fuck off, if you want.

She is the best MomHuman I could wish for.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 9:31 pm

I think you said that once before, and because I have age-related brain-rot, I forgot. Well, you lucky, lucky person. Enjoy DWTS with your sweet wonderful Mom and give her an extra hug for me.
