O HAI JOHN MCCAIN! Sometimes you seem to understand that your party (AND YOU) have thrown in your lot with a bunch of neo-Nazi troglodytes of terror. And then usually you go right back to cynically exploiting these dumb biddies and their lunatic leaders for your own political gain. Hey that’s just how it is, Jake, it’s POLITICSTOWN.

But this week, there was a nice and pretty damsel being Arab-baited by a cabal of nutballs in the actual Congress, and you did the right (and so gallant!) thing and thundered against it in your wavery old man voice from the Senate floor. Well, that was your first mistake, as now your bosom buddies are stomping and slavering and banging their feet. They are calling for your recall — your TOTAL recall, if you will, the kind that happens with a “final dirt nap.” Uh.

So, Wes Harris is this goofball bigot Tea Party goon and “founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party.” And he is real, real mad at John McCain for standing up for Huma Abedin.

“Have you ever read the Quran? I suggest you do so, because anyone that is a Muslim is a threat to this country, and that’s a fact,” Harris told the Arizona Capitol Times. “There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. If they are Muslim they have to follow the Quran. That’s their religion and that’s their doctrine.”

Well, a) that’s fucking moronic, because obviously there are many kinds of Christians, and only the stupid ones “have to follow the Bible.” Then he said some shit about how it doesn’t matter if Abedin is Muslim Brotherhood; being Muslim is enough to have her, we don’t know, put in The Maiden, probably.

But what else does Wes Harris think?

Harris said he plans to circulate recall petitions against McCain. In his email, he said, “We must find a way to get rid of this embarrassment.”

The email Harris sent includes a forwarded item from the blog Bare Naked Islam that castigates McCain for defending “Islamic enemies of America” and attacking U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican and tea party favorite. The blog piece ends by saying, “Go to hell, Senator, it’s time for you to take your final dirt nap.”

We are going to go with “Harris never read all the way to the end of ‘Bare Naked Islam’s’ blog post, because he does not know how to read.”

        • emmelemm

          Honestly, my personal discernment of how "p" works is that making many comments and getting many upfists does count, but having "followers" counts more, and since Barb made the new account, and presumably many people are simultaneously following her, p shoots up quickly.

          Snark off, she's more than earned all that "p", in my book at least.

    • Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, take your pick!

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Well that's a good question…to mainline Protestants and liberal Catholics freedom of religion is just that…then you start to head into the swamp. The further right you go…Baptists, non-denoms and their like freedom of religion is more or less freedom of churches to push the country toward theocracy. Then you begin to head REALLY right…Pentacostals, Christian identity, etc. and what you find is freedom of religion only applies to really rightwing faiths and no Jews allowed. Then at the VERY furthest right wing we have the Dominionists where I'm guessing this wetfart on a Hoverround and his "naked Islam" buddy (translation:cover for seeking rentboys) belong. These assholes are not only ultra-authoritarian racist bigots but they think freedom of religion only belongs to them. They also feel the same way about the entire globe, that their version of Christianity MUST conquer everyone and everywhere….so that's a short rogues gallery of nutters as I see it.

    Hey tea bagger, I suggest that you read your violent holy book all the way through first, then shut the fuck up.

    • BerkeleyBear

      Heck, just reading about King David should be enough. Or the slaughter of the defenders of Jericho.

      But of course that's Old Testament, which Christians claim is irrelevant except for the passages about the gheys being bad, mmmkay.

    • OneYieldRegular

      Would that be the Bible, the Book of Mormon, or Atlas Shrugged? There are so many holy books these days…

    • CommieLibunatic

      I think my favorite one is about Jephthah. That guy swore that if God helped him win the battle of Ammon, he would kill the first person to greet him when he got home. He won and was greeted by his daughter, who he set on fire.

      Must be those family values that us atheists don't have which I hear so much about.

      • viennawoods13

        I still prefer Lot offering his virgin daughters to the crowd to do with as they wanted. and later, when he and said daughters were all that were left of the family (wife having been turned to salt), they took turns getting him drunk and fucking him, so daddums would have sons.

        • Biel_ze_Bubba

    Wanna see ol' Wes Harris go into a rage that makes his face turn beet red and his eyeballs explode from out of their sockets. Tell him that a US Senator can not be recalled. Such an election effort violates the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution. The seating of Congress people in the House and the Senate is solely the province of those respective chambers.

    Why do they stay. Seriously. Why do the McCains and Lugars and even, god help me, Scott Brown stay in a party that has been taken over by crypto-fascists (always loved that word) and mouth breathing racists.Don't they understand that their continued presence in the GOP only empowers the Baggers and the David Dukes? Why isn't the sane (and mostly sane) component of the GOP starting their own Party of not crazy conservatives. Copy Canada and call themselves the Progressive Conservatives. (That would really confuse the Beckians and the Cantorese). And guess what. I think they'd still beat people in three way races in those conservative bastions of Arizona and Indiana. As it is, I have no sympathy for Walnuts as his own people tell him to take an early dirt nap. And no patience for people like Lugar and Huntsman who do nothing to save the rest of us from those bonafide lunatics that they know control the modern GOP.
