We Think We Can All Agree 83-Year-Old Ladies Can Spit On Whomever They Like

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

We are quite sure that we are supposed to be very ANGRY at this 83-year-old lady for Crimes Against Civility (spitting in the face of a Woman for Romney). “Why are you against Planned Parenthood?” the old lady asks. “Women are in need…” The rest of her plaintive statement is drowned out by broads trying to shut her up, until she cold hocks a loogie in the face of the lady next to her.

Well, the Romney Ladies (who are “peaceful,” so that is nice!) do not care for Mary Hoglund’s method of making her displeasure known, and break into a rousing round of “ROM-NEY ROM-NEY” that would really be better if it were “USA! USA!” with a little soft shoe.

And here we must remind our readers that the only time it is okay to spit in someone’s face is if you are a very old lady, because then you can do what the fuck you want. Or if you are spitting in someone’s face with votes.

When my mom was in her 90s she used to watch politicians and she'd say "That guy makes me so mad I could just spit!" I guess you really can get that mad.

kittensdontlie August 19, 2012 at 8:13 pm

So, spit is the Mitturd's kryptonite. Subduing a whole population was never so easy.

docteur_giraud August 18, 2012 at 2:16 pm

The Republicans may change their minds about the usefulness of death panels.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 2:40 pm

They've already GOT death panels. Now they'll be sending her photo around.

rmjagg August 18, 2012 at 2:43 pm

with her address and a detailed list of ' instructions '

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Oh, you know them too, huh?

Weenus299 August 18, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Must haves a photo ID to schpitt.

reliefsinn August 18, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Cripes sake, at least she's not trying to vote without an ID, that would be unforgivable.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 2:21 pm

The little chicken lady who was spat on started it, getting up in granny's grill like that. I do not condone what this 83 year old did, but I respect the fuck out of her.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 2:39 pm

I'm thinkin' Granny's gonna twist someone's nuts off if she can get her hands on 'em.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Interesting. I don't think she intends to emasculate anyone, but this will be a blood feud for generations. When old women fight, shit sticks.

Geminisunmars August 18, 2012 at 3:40 pm

I think you mean spit sticks.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Absolutely. And if she wants to load up an adult diaper and swing it around the room like David going after Goliath, I would probably pay-per-view that, too.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 7:20 pm

I know if I were her kid I'd be mad at the bitch who manhandled my Momma.

Lascauxcaveman August 18, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Thankfully, I've never had occasion to spit in someone's face. That is really beyond the pale.

However, had I been there, I almost certainly would have punched Romney Lady in the throat. Perhaps the 83-year-old loogie-lady was just worried about damaging her fragile, arthritic knuckles.

memzilla August 18, 2012 at 4:20 pm

LOOGIES FOR FREEDOM!

Negropolis August 19, 2012 at 12:10 am

I was thinking the same thing. Getting up in someone's face that closely where I'm from usually warrants something more than a response of verbal abuse.

CrunchyKnee August 18, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Today we are all spitty 83 year old women.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 2:31 pm

We shall

Oh sure, now I can see all the calls for banning mucous .

OkieDokieDog August 18, 2012 at 2:25 pm

Getting old has its advantages.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 2:39 pm

No shit. You don't HAVE to be nice to ANYBODY no moar.

Dashboard Buddha August 18, 2012 at 2:49 pm

One of my fond desires is to be a complete pain in the ass to anyone who crosses me. The nice CNA will a smile and a joke. The mean one that smells like stale cigarette smoke will get…

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:48 pm

When I was young, I used to sit in meetings and listen to people blather on forever, and hold my tongue because I knew damn well those foolish old farts didn't want to listen to me. Last time I was in a meeting, one of my nemeses was running off at the mouth, and it gave me SO much pleasure to say, "You know, Tom, it's great that you called this meeting and everything, but if you're just gonna read the agenda, you gave us all a copy and we ALL can read." Oh, that felt good. If only I could fart on command, I would've punctuated it with a stinker.

Butch_Wagstaff August 18, 2012 at 7:40 pm

I, personally, would not do any spitting (even though I'm really good at it). But, then again, I'm not an 83 yo lady. If I was an 83 yo man…umm, maybe.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 7:48 pm

I have this plan. I want to get tiny little doll hands. Plastic or foam. Spray paint them a "flesh" colour, insert rods in the wrist part, and wear clothes with extra long sleeves (easy since I'm a short little fart and wear my partner's clothes a lot, he's taller). If somebody did something like this to me, I would whip out my tiny little plastic doll hands and beat their chests, screaming "You brute, you brute, you *horrible* brute!" like the guy in Blazing Saddles.

Will it fly?

ETA: I'm trying to think of creative street-theater type responses to the nutbaggery. Keeps me from going insane.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Yes, I notice it doesn't say she was arrested. Needs moar blah.

Rotundo_ August 18, 2012 at 2:26 pm

It is amusing to see how they respond when a small dose of what they have been doing gets slung right back at them. Civility is always desireable, but sometimes you have to respond in kind, simply because they do not, or will not, understand anything else.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Honest to God, I bet she felt 100% better after spitting.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Seriously, they didn't understand responding in kind either. But I gave you p anyway. For sPit.

BigSkullF*ckingDog August 18, 2012 at 2:29 pm

If I had had that old bat in my face yelling at me to "zip it" I would have done more than spit on her.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 2:40 pm

I ain't never yellin' nothin' in UR face. And u can't make me.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

You could kick her in the nuts because she probably has some.

I know … Ann Coulter libel.

BigSkullF*ckingDog August 18, 2012 at 2:30 pm

I can't wait until I'm an old lady so I can do these kinds of things. I'm gonna hit people with my cane, too.

Dashboard Buddha August 18, 2012 at 2:51 pm

A few years ago when I was gimping around with a cane, I caught two kids trying to shoplift at the market near my place. I rapped one across the knees. He looked shocked, but he put the candy back.

I hope ya'll don't think any less of me for it, but godDAMN, that felt good.

Doktor Zoom August 18, 2012 at 3:11 pm

If you meet Dashboard Buddha on the road, watch the fuck out, ya little punks.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I'm not sure how many of us got that, but it's one of my fave koans. Modified, of course.

Geminisunmars August 18, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Now I have to kill you for revealing that.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 7:54 pm

I will *never* think less of you for having fun that didn't really hurt anyone.

ETA: Forgot your hug.

finallyhappy August 18, 2012 at 3:37 pm

I already tell handsome young men that they are handsome. I'm old enough to be their mom/grandmom

Lascauxcaveman August 18, 2012 at 4:06 pm

But you aren't, so … well, you never know!

AddHomonym August 18, 2012 at 5:23 pm

We love those kinds of compliments! (See what I did there?)

Butch_Wagstaff August 18, 2012 at 7:51 pm

I was hobblin' around on a cane a couple of years ago for a few weeks. I immediately noticed how I was treated by strangers in public. I'm sure most of the treatment was just out of politeness but I think some of it was because people thought to themselves: "Don't fuck with this one, he's got a cane."

WABishop August 19, 2012 at 7:45 am

Use an umbrella instead. Cuter but just as lethal.

SaintRond August 18, 2012 at 2:42 pm

About this ad – unless you have a college degree, don't even think about joining the Navy, unless your idea of fun is three straight years of cleaning toilets and scraping paint with a chisel.

Just sayin', be careful.

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 2:58 pm

I wish we all could spit more and explode each other less.

Angry_Marmot August 18, 2012 at 4:18 pm

They should go back to offering rum, sodomy and the lash.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Well, yes, but how gay do you WANT the Navy to be?

This woman better hope Romney doesn't win. They will be stripping her Medicare & Social Security stat!

tessiee August 18, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Or, you could flip it the other way and figure that since they're gonna put her out onto the ice floe anyway, she's got nothing to lose, so she may as well get her spits in while she can.

Butch_Wagstaff August 18, 2012 at 7:53 pm

She decided to make her opinion known while she was still physically capable of producing spit before Medicare "reform" kicked in.

KotBR August 18, 2012 at 2:50 pm

She wasn't really being rude, per say, just showing these 'Women for Mitt' what the Romney/Ryan campaign really thinks of working class women. Honesty in politics and all that.

smokefilledroommate August 18, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I can see Mary in the parking lot leaning against a car, arms crossed, tapping her orthopedic shoe… laying in wait

Mojopo August 18, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Mary Hogland doesn't need the white man's rules to validate her shit. She is stone-cold Pussy Rioting.

The_Lucky_Wife August 18, 2012 at 2:51 pm

When Romney ships the jobs of the "nice" ladies overseas, I'm betting they won't shout "Romney," but will be spitting in someone's face, preferably Romney's.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Yes, Women for Romney DO work. But the work is raising children with the help of a nanny and a professional cleaning service. IT'S A JERB!!!!!!!!!

not that Dewey August 18, 2012 at 4:39 pm

No, they'll still blame Obama, for allowing Romney to ship the jobs overseas.

shelwood46 August 18, 2012 at 2:53 pm

The other women kind of lost the moral high ground when they immediately starting smashing her in the head with their fists. Luckily, they are weak and ineffectual. Well, not luck. You gotta pick your targets when face spitting.

Native_of_SL_UT August 18, 2012 at 2:57 pm

It's only "stand your ground" if you shoot 'em in the face.
Next time this old lady should just bust a cap in the threatening persons face and she will become a darling of the right also.

starfanglednut August 18, 2012 at 3:52 pm

This. Or refuse to let them pay for a cookie with an ebt coupon.

tessiee August 18, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Yeah, that never woulda happened if Granny had been packing heat in between the Werthers' in her big ol' grandma pockabook.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I actually knew a grammy who carried. She'd been attacked on a dark street one night and swore it would never happen again. She blew away the guys trying to mug her the second time. I think it upset her almost as much as it upset them, but couldn't confirm that, since she kilt them daid.

SexySmurf August 18, 2012 at 3:00 pm

That 83-year-old lady is a slut who wants to force me to pay for her birth-control pills.

I know he would never………….but just had a vision of Barack dousing Jan Brewer while she was poking him.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:34 pm

My fantasy: when he comes out to give his celebratory speech on his re-election day he looks straight into the camera, gives that Barack Grin®, shakes his finger and says, "This one's for you, Jan Brewer."

Blueb4sinrise August 18, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Would be sweet. He wouldn't do that either. Maybe Uncle Joe.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I know. I'd love if he would, but he really *is* above all that shit. Dammit.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Yes, our president is very mannerly, even in the face of temper tantrums and word salad.But, by all means, I would settle for a righteous outburst from Uncle Joe.Good call.

tessiee August 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

"Barack dousing Jan Brewer while she was poking him"

Just as well that he didn't; it might have hydrated her.

Negropolis August 19, 2012 at 12:15 am

I always just imagined him cold biting off that digit that lizard calls a finger. Like the reptile she is, it would probably grow back, anyway, so I wouldn't feel so bad.

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
And spit in the faces of those who don't suit me.

They will get a loogie.

Also, Red Hats are for Linux developers.

When I am an old woman, I shall go out dancing, cook meals for my friends, explore the world, and bang my brains out with brainy men.
I already have enough purple clothes to open a goddamn store.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 8:02 pm

I thought *every*body knew that.

Sounds like Romney's women are just too slow. When you hear that hock sound "krRrrrrkrr," you run . It's common sense policy. …whores.

Pinche, man, if you're gonna say that, you gotta change your av. Bitch looks like she's about to hock a loogie right on me.

When we were working for the Obama campaign in 08, an old lady called my hubby a "traitor to his race". When he laughed and said what race is that, HUMAN? The old biddy spit on him.

He will feel so redeemed today

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:45 pm

If only your husband had seized his moment of fame and taken that story to the media. Then again, the TV stations are all owned by people who agree with the old lady so … PR fail.

But congrats to him in any case. He's a brave patriot.

finallyhappy August 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

People in my office asked me why I wasn't voting for Hillary because we had much in common(white women with advanced degrees?- although hers is more advanced than mine). I said that's not how I vote but how do you know what I do or don't have in common with Barack Obama?

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Give yourself and your hubby big hugs from La Casa de Los Gatos for bravely facing up to that kind of shit. Thanks for helping POTUS get elected!

DCBloom August 18, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Aw thanks, Borg. Although, to be honest, it's a fond memory. You shoulda seen the look on his face…. of course, it's easy to laugh when you know you're gonna win.

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 8:05 pm

No, thank YOU for doing what you did. I used to go to every damn political rally and work on just about every campaign, and I really miss doing that. I love the excitement of A Righteous Cause.

Negropolis August 19, 2012 at 12:20 am

I'm confused…isn't our president half white?

But that half is overwhelmed by the way excessive black half. It's in the Imaginary Constitution.

She is very lucky the Romney women did not spit back- I hear they all have venom sacs…

tessiee August 18, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Fortunately for her, before they spit venom, their neck frill becomes engorged, so you have a chance to run out of range.

if you really want to piss those old ladies off and throw the whole place into utter chaos, just stand at the back of the room and yell "BINGO!"

Limeylizzie August 18, 2012 at 4:17 pm

I am severely repulsed by spitting, or gobbing as we call it. I would have gone with what I did to Janet Oliver, outside my high school when I was about 13, a knuckle-sandwich to fell her to the ground followed by a kick to the mouth.

Jukesgrrl August 18, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Sadly, since Americans have no couth, we have made the knuckle-sandwich a felony, where as gobbing … rarely more than a misdemeanor. Unless the spitting occurs on the golf course, in which case I believe the death penalty applies.

tessiee August 18, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Don't offer a knuckle sandwich to Mitt:

Fluffy_Kitties August 18, 2012 at 4:34 pm

In the video, you can see that the Repuke harpy verbally assaulted the old lady, shouting at her within inches of her face. It's a physical provocation to blast someone with your shrieking breath at close range. The old lady spat back at the harpy in retaliation, and the harpy then assaulted her with her fist. Nothing worse than what you'd see in a typical bar room brawl.

finallyhappy August 18, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I don't spit but I do say Fuck off- which people don't expect when they see me(if they don't know me)

mrblifil August 18, 2012 at 4:35 pm

That bitch who got in her face is a real winner though, holy shit… was she telling her "SHUT UP!"??? I didn't realize getting nose to nose on your opposition while streams of red faced opprobrium usher forth constituted "constructive dialog."

Riggsveda August 18, 2012 at 5:30 pm

She also kept touching her. Who keeps laying hands on somone they've got surrounded? That's like an engraved invitation to an assault.

CthuNHu August 19, 2012 at 1:14 am

You know who else got physical with dissenters they had surrounded?

ahnc August 18, 2012 at 4:36 pm

The upside is it's better to be spat upon than gunned down with an AK47!

ttommyunger August 18, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Odd, judging from the collective groan of the crowd in reaction to someone getting spat upon they seem to strongly disapprove. On the other hand, creating conditions whereby women are more susceptible to Uterine/Breast Cancer is just fucking ducky.

lulzmonger August 18, 2012 at 11:49 pm

Most definitely. Just lift up your skirt and do a little can-can. That will be our signal. [smile face]

carlgt1 August 18, 2012 at 7:25 pm

my first reaction is that wasn't nice, and it will just be spun ad nauseum about how "liberals aren't civil" etc, but then I thought "a 'Women for Romney' group is about as absurd as 'African-Americans for the KKK" — so spit away, granny!

MittBorg August 18, 2012 at 7:51 pm

A bunch of nasty old bitchy women. I'd spit on 'em too.

Shame on liberal shosholist spitty grandma getting those "women for Rmoney," all 2 dozen of them, panties in a bunch.

MittBorg August 19, 2012 at 2:26 pm

I like that lady. I bet if she were younger and stronger, she would've ripped off all their panties and stuck 'em on those stupid cows' heads.

Spit was used a lot in the old day, before ointments and balms were used. So when this insect attacked her, she spat on it before it could bite her.

Man, I was drinking TEA when I read that. (wipes off computer screen)

Today we are all octogenarian lungbutter.

This is EXACTLY like the Rand Paul aide stomping on that hippy-lady's head … or the OWS girl getting pepper-sprayed point-blank in the mug … or … (your favorite anecdote of casual right-wing brutality goes here)!

One of us! Ones of us!

Really, though, "Women for Romney"?! What next, Hebrews for Hitler? Yeah, I totally went there, Godwin.

I know…..I cannot stand conservative women, they are a pox on our gender.
Years ago at a restaurant I overheard a woman say, "Abortion is evil, think of all the future tax payers it kills!"
WTF????

Did you miss the hit to the head delivered by "Zip It" lady dingbat?

If you look closely, you can clearly see a second spitter on the grassy knoll.

Dammit! I was going to do Our Mucosal Friend. Now I have to think of something else.

This is exactly why I love you.

Geminisunmars August 19, 2012 at 1:41 am

It isn't often I get a love note for threatening death. I love you back.

I'll admit to being an odd duck.
