SECRET WEATHER PLOTS  6:45 pm August 27, 2012

A Children’s Treasury of Contrarian Republican Commentary on Hurricane Isaac

by Jim Newell

Secretly awesome?What is Hurricane Isaac to certain more outspoken member of the Republican party? A disaster, perhaps, that could destroy the northern Gulf Coast yet again? Maybe it’s an Obama Commerce Department conspiracy. Or a welcome opening of the skies that keeps Joe Biden away. Or maybe it’s nothing, and no one should give a shit, as long as Republicans win the election. Let’s share some Republican “takes” on Hurricane Isaac, the official storm of RNC2K12.

Rush Limbaugh has a theory about Hurricane Isaac; let’s post it again. Limbaugh is very clear, while delivering his conspiracy theory, that he is not delivering a conspiracy theory:

Rush Limbaugh, while repeatedly insisting he is “not alleging a conspiracy,” suggested Monday that the National Hurricane Center’s forecast models for Tropical Storm Isaac were altered to help President Barack Obama and “cast a pall” over the Republican National Convention.

“I’m not alleging conspiracies here. The Hurricane Center is the regime; the Hurricane Center is the Commerce Department,” Limbaugh said on his talk show. “It’s the government. It’s Obama.”

But according to Ted Cruz, then, isn’t the evil Obama Commerce Department doing Republicans a favor? “We have some many things to be thankful for, so many blessings,” Cruz said at yesterday’s Faith and Freedom Coalition gathering in Tampa. “We can be thankful for Hurricane Isaac. If nothing else it kept Joe Biden away.”

Rep. Darrell Issa said he “doesn’t care” about a hurricane ruining everything, as long as he can turn it into a terrible metaphor about Republicans regaining control of the White House:

“I think what you have to remember is Republicans are going to take Washington by storm on January 20th of next year, so if this is the first storm of Republicans taking control of our country again, making America competitive again, I’m fine with that. I don’t care if we get blown in by a hurricane or a tornado, ultimately there’s going to be an earthquake in Washington next January.”

And with that, all opinions about Hurricane Isaac have been offered.

… and this is Obama's fault, right?

Biff August 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm

You had to ask?

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:24 pm

He's Storm. Barack Obama is just his secret identity, he's really an African princess with the mutant power to control the weather… You should see him with his weave, uhh… girlfriend!

Fare la Volpe August 27, 2012 at 10:40 pm

That does explain why his hair has been going white so fast.

just_a_head August 27, 2012 at 9:27 pm

Of course. If a bitterly flaps its wings in the Sahara it can cause a volcano to erupt, yada yada

Same thing…if a fascist, commie, black man is born in Kenya…same thing.

tessiee August 28, 2012 at 2:06 am

Not to nitpick, but I think it's kinda funny that in a comment about the Republicans bitching and moaning about Obama yet again, you typed "butterfly" as "bitterly".

Arborista August 28, 2012 at 2:27 am

And I read it as 'bitterfly'… Go figure.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I thought it was *deliberate.* Damn, Wonketz, u r 2 CLEVER 4 MEEEE!

just_a_head August 29, 2012 at 12:49 am

Whoopsie! I'd blame autocorrect for that one, but it was probably Freudian.

Butterfly!

tessiee August 28, 2012 at 2:05 am

You know that stiff neck you woke up with the other day?
Obama's fault.
And that extra three pounds that just appeared out of nowhere?
Totally Obama's fault.
And that dickhead who wouldn't let you merge onto the freeway?
Taking orders directly from the Kenyan muslin.
etc.

actor212 August 28, 2012 at 8:20 am

If you're going to speculate that Barack Obama has his hands on HAARP and can somehow control or even influence severe weather, it might be a good idea to try to get on his good side, instead of pissing him off.

Just sayin'. After all, these are the asshats who pray to get in God's good graces ahead of tornado season or hurricane season or blizzard season or…or just after the indictment's been handed up.

bumfug August 27, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Rep. Darrell Issa said “I think what you have to remember is Republicans are going to take Washington by storm on January 20th…"
Well, sorta like a storm – they'd definitely leave devastation in their wake.

Sparky McGruff August 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Darrell Issa knows about taking things. If Obama leaves the window open, Darell will hotwire the election and drive it off to a chop shop.

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Man, that deserves to be tattooed on someone. Like Darrell Issa. WIth votes.

YouBetcha August 27, 2012 at 6:52 pm

I'm sure there will be many attendees taking shelter in Tampa's fine homosexual-populated-adult-beverage-serving establishments.

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Oh, hell to the yeah. Street hustlers are totes excited about this because the Repubs like to flash cash.

starfanglednut August 27, 2012 at 9:45 pm

HI Z!!!!!!!

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 10:29 pm

Hey, sweetpea! So glad to see youse! (Hugs the little star, kisses each cheek)

Is the Republican meltdown fun or wut? You got popcorn? (proffers bowl)

vtxmcrider August 28, 2012 at 3:06 am

Etiquette requires that the popcorn come out awhile after the bowl has been passed and taken effect.

starfanglednut August 28, 2012 at 8:04 am

*Hugs teh Z back. I luuuurves me a good republican meltdown. Is that carmel popcorn?

You forgot Michele Bachmann!

no_gravity August 27, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Something Rush Limbaugh has never seen.

Tequila Mockingbird August 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

The link is here. I was trying to fix it when someone replied, damnit:

"At this moment in time we're quite literally looking at a hurricane here in Florida. We're looking at a political hurricane in this country. We are looking at a spiritual hurricane in our land. And it is time for each one of us to show up and suit up and stand up and realize that in this time and in this day we pour it out for Him."

Callyson August 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Yeah–I know I'm praying for a hurricane (of votes!) to wipe out the Reeps…

Biff August 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Wait, what? She's pouring out a 40 for who, now?

Nostrildamus August 27, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Careful, Michele. Watch out for flying houses.

Neoyorquino August 27, 2012 at 7:29 pm

That curly-feet bit creeps me out, every time.

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm

"What in the hell is that woman talking about?" – What I say every time I hear Michele Bachman talk.

Native_of_SL_UT August 27, 2012 at 7:54 pm

I'm ready to "suit up'" for the convention. Now where did I put my Speedo?

weejee August 27, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Is she showing one and all the size of Marcus' corn dog?

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 8:14 pm

Marcus hasn't ever let her see that… No, Marcus is a good christian man and he won't allow his god fearin' wife to see his penis until 6 months after he's dead.. That's in the bible!

(Note: His buddies are allowed to come over and play with it all the time because that's just good christian fun!)

no_gravity August 27, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Rush Limbaugh is a fat, fucking idiot.

QED

SorosBot August 27, 2012 at 6:53 pm

It looks kind of like a misshapen conical dick.

smokefilledroommate August 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

Limbaugh?

SorosBot August 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Who knows; under that FUPA I doubt anyone has seen what that dick looks like in half a century.

smokefilledroommate August 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm

I just meant Limbaugh himself.

miss_grundy August 27, 2012 at 9:01 pm

And who would want to????? Ick, ick, idk…..

Callyson August 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Or part of a woman's anatomy:

http://weknowawesome.com/2012/08/27/giant-uterus-

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm

That'll get the Republicans to run away screaming.

tessiee August 28, 2012 at 2:07 am

And why wouldn't a giant uterus be headed directly for Florida? It's America's Wang.

smokefilledroommate August 28, 2012 at 12:16 am

'Conical Dong'– think of it as a sequel to Tubular Bells.

The_Lucky_Wife August 27, 2012 at 6:54 pm

That Kenyan usurper in the WH have got the Gopers so off-balance, they can't stay on message like they used to. Their opinions are all over the place; it's actually quite refreshing, or would be if they used their brains when forming their opinions.

Native_of_SL_UT August 27, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Luntz didn't have enough time to poll this and give them the right thing to say.

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Most recent memo by Luntz: Just say whatever on rape, what's the worst that could happen?

smokefilledroommate August 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I knew Barry controlled the weather! Yay!

Biff August 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm

So he's to blame for this nearly 120 damned degree heatwave in this god forsaken desert, too?

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Man, it's been hot even up here in the low foothills. Fucking Obammaz.

(Although it cooled off a bit today — probably Bamz snickering about the cancellation of the first day of the RNC).

WhatTheHeck August 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I tell you, this man Obama is so powerful, I’m scared. Its like he’s the god of hellfire.

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Arthur Brown LIBEL!

MilwaukeeKent August 27, 2012 at 9:48 pm

OT, but true: a friend was in a Kmart years ago when this song came up in the Muzak rotation on the PA. "I am the god of hellfire! And I bring you [beep] "SHOES!" [beep]…" and the song continued.

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 10:29 pm

Hahaha.

smokefilledroommate August 28, 2012 at 5:41 am

It's always great when someone has some 'Mart balls!

Negropolis August 27, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Yes, but does he also control the weather underground…?

anniegetyerfun August 28, 2012 at 1:46 am

It is well known that he pals around with terrorists.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Above ground, underwater — he controls that shit ERwhere!

Fare la Volpe August 27, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Barack Obama is Storm from the X-Men.

Self-Uploader August 27, 2012 at 6:55 pm

I'm confused. So are they saying it's Obama's fault or are they calling it the wrath of God coming down to sweep the Republicans into power in which case, shouldn't it have hit Broward County and not Tampa?

MissTaken August 27, 2012 at 6:57 pm

I don’t care if we get blown in by a hurricane or a tornado, ultimately there’s going to be an earthquake in Washington next January.”

orygoon August 27, 2012 at 7:28 pm

No shit. (Hugs MissTaken in a way meant to be comforting, and yet scared.)

Guppy August 27, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Earthquake country? Is that NoVa?

Biff August 27, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Prolly more like SoMa.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 12:43 am

Will anyone outside California understand that?

GemlikeFlame August 28, 2012 at 1:43 am

No. However, the big pharma conspiracy theorists are almost certainly going to conflate it with Prozac.

GemlikeFlame August 28, 2012 at 11:48 pm

It is my distinct pleasure to announce that I finally have a single follower. It took me several hours deconstructing HTML to figure out who it was so that I could return the favor, and found, to my untrammeled and thoroughly egotistical delight that it is our very own MittBorg. I have rarely had that kind of compliment, and would be even more delighted if IntenseDebate's follow-this-person link actually did what it was advertised to do. Perhaps IntenseDebate dislikes Safari, not sure, but I'll try another browser or two on the morrow.

Thank you, sir/ma'am, you made an aging nerd very happy. I'm equally sure this won't do my reputation meter any good, but I am way past caring about that.

Warpde August 27, 2012 at 9:54 pm

I hear you.
Those damn Fracking Earthquakes suck big time.

smokefilledroommate August 27, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I thought hurricanes were reserved for gays and heathens. I guess god just doesn't give a shit anymore.

Biff August 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Let the indiscriminate smitings begin!

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:30 pm

It's almost as though this "god" person doesn't exist or if (s)he does that (s)he doesn't have any control over the weather or… well… much of anything else…

But that couldn't be!

MilwaukeeKent August 27, 2012 at 9:52 pm

They say this God works in mysterious ways — it's a kind of cosmic "Get out of jail free" card which means they can say any damned thing about him that comes into their heads.

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Au contraire, I'd say god is displaying a convincing bias TOWARDS gays and heathens and against these fucking louts who have been trying to convince the rest of us they speak in its name.

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Seems just as, if not more, likely…

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 8:47 pm

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the Republican meltdown, because it would totally fucking ruin my reputation here of being, you know, a *nice* guy.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 27, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Maybe this shows that the Republican Party is made up of gays and heathens.

It is all starting to make sense.

Or perhaps it is that whole "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven" thing.

Toomush_Infer August 27, 2012 at 8:53 pm

God is just chaotic….wild….

Negropolis August 27, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Since when has the modern Republican Party not been populated by (closet) gays and (closet) heathens?

coolhandnuke August 27, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Hurricane Isaac is a wingnut's conspiracy theory of the black man giving whitey the "Shaft." Just like "Katrina and the Waves" was another conspiracy to show how clueless and aloof Bush II was.

SorosBot August 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm

They know who's a sex machine with all the chicks. (Can you dig it?)

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Oh, I'd LERVE to give these mofux the shaft till they scream "Just the tip!" They need the mother and father of an asskicking, and it looks like Mother Nature has decided to deliver it herself.

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Borg, please… for your own sake… at LEAST triple bag before shafting any of these degenerates…

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 8:44 pm

HAHAHA, you're kidding, right? Because I was planning on doing them with Ann Coulter's dick.

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 8:58 pm

You seem to be feeling pretty spry today.

MilwaukeeKent August 27, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Not even with someone else's dick. It is tempting though to" sell them a rat's asshole as a wedding ring" (if that wasn't such a Republican thing to do).

ManchuCandidate August 27, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Basically, Obama is Cobra Commander with his weather dominator and the GOPers are G.I. Joe with Glory Hole Grip.

outragedcitizen August 29, 2012 at 8:24 am

Most excellent comment, Dude! I read it an hour ago and I'm still laughing.

Trannysurprise August 27, 2012 at 7:01 pm

"I don’t care if we get blown…"

Oh someone's getting blown in Tampa. I guess it's better than "forcible rape" since people got all pissy about it.

miss_grundy August 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm

It's just a shame that we have such a spineless media, because it would be wonderful to catch these people doing all sorts of nasty stuff while they were in Tampa and broadcasting it on the internet and all those news shows.

BarackMyWorld August 27, 2012 at 7:01 pm

One less day of misquoting Obama and claiming lower taxes are God's will. Yay.

nounverb911 August 27, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Wait! Didn't Issa steal Isaac's hub caps back in the day?

Biff August 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Isaac, the hilarious bartender from the Love Boat? Nooooo!

weejee August 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm

And he sold them to his cousin Dough-Bro to make resonator guitars.

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I wasn't going to reply to this stretch, but since no one else has, I'll just slide in this comment.

Biff August 27, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Doe that make them National-ists?

slowhansolo August 27, 2012 at 11:17 pm

I was waiting for the first repub to say how God specifically saved the convention from the storm.

WhatTheHeck August 27, 2012 at 7:51 pm

But god doesn’t see fit to save the people in the direct path of Isaac, does he? I guess no one is praying for them.

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Nobody prays for poors…

PubOption August 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm

They can't afford the postage to get their message across.

Toomush_Infer August 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm

So it can hit those worthless blahs in New Orleans again, (see God's Wrath, above)….

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 8:57 pm

I wonder how the folks in, say, Biloxi, will respond to this news.

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 10:37 pm

They gon' be lovin' them some Rev. Dumbfuck.

MilwaukeeKent August 27, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I'm sure that worked, so now it's up to some god-awful bible church in Mississippi/Louisiana to pray it over to Houston/Galveston, who can punt it on to Mexico to become "What hurricane?".

Lucidamente1 August 27, 2012 at 7:10 pm

I'm surprised they haven't gone with the "God shifted the storm west so it didn't hit Tampa" line.

SorosBot August 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm

…yet.

PubOption August 27, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Well at least your not surprised anymore. More like Prophetic.

ShuCityRefugee August 28, 2012 at 10:24 am

I understand that Rev. Pat Robertson has said precisely that – the very same Rev. Robertson whom God keeps alive so that sane people can laugh at him and remember why not to vote for Republicans.

weejee August 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm

ultimately there’s going to be an earthquake in Washington next January

We shall be blown on the beaches, we shall be blown on the landing grounds, we shall be blown in the fields and in the streets, we shall be blown in the hills; we shall never reach around !!

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 8:02 pm

I will stand on record as saying that I will get blown on the beaches, I will get blown on the landing grounds, I will get blown in the fields and in the streets, I will be blown in the hills….

So… who's offering?

BlueStateLibel August 27, 2012 at 7:16 pm

"I don’t care if we get blown in by a hurricane or a tornado"

It's blowin' you and me

viennawoods13 August 28, 2012 at 12:31 am

Great movie.

mrblifil August 27, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Much preferable when Bush had no fucking clue NO was about to be drowned while he ate cake, played pretend guitar, and had to have his staff prepare a DVD of collected news broadcasts to get "the Decider" up to speed.

And you are correct. There is no way anybody would be crass enough to presume that the people advising Bush might have had drowning NO on their agenda to be a case study on how little we need "wasteful government programs."

Pithaughn August 27, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Crikey! Will someone please get on the blower to Obama's Regime Weather Hurricane Office and find out is this or is this not a legitimate hurricane? And don't you believe any of those science analyzing types, you make sure to speak to a supervisor!

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:35 pm

We'll know in a month or so if it was legitimate if Florida winds up pregnant…

LibertyLover August 27, 2012 at 8:40 pm

You'd think with all of the viagra in that state, it would be able to get it up a little higher.

Oh, great. Now it's "let 'em eat earthquake."

Must consult the rhyming dictionary to find out what's next.

SorosBot August 27, 2012 at 7:31 pm

What's next? Well after it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane – Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn, world serves its own needs, dummy serve your own needs. Feed it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, The ladder starts to clatter with fear fight down height. Wire in a fire, representing seven games, a government for hire and a combat site. Left of west and coming in a hurry with the furies breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered cropped. Look at that low playing! Fine, then. Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right – right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched. It's the end of the world as we know it.

orygoon August 27, 2012 at 7:44 pm

They're rioting in Africa, they're starving in Spain.
There's hurricanes in Florida, and Texas needs rain.
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don't like anybody very much!

But we can be tranquil, and thankful, and proud,
For mans' been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud.
And we know for certain that some lovely day
Someone will set the spark off, and we will all be blown away.

They're rioting in Africa, there's strife in Iran.
What nature doesn't do to us, will be done by our fellow man.

Toomush_Infer August 27, 2012 at 9:00 pm

SavageDrummer August 27, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Art Bell is moderately entertaining… Rush is just insane…

Yeah, I listen to Coast to Coast, sue me… :P

Biff August 27, 2012 at 11:06 pm

I can see the beacon lights flashing atop Art's antenna array, about 7 or 8 miles away. He sold his radio station, but still has his compound.

As someone whose various family members have survived Betsy, Camille, Rita, Gustav, and Katrina, I feel that I can safely say to all these pin-headed shitholes:

Fuck the motherfucking fucking fuck off, you fetid assbaskets. Enjoy Hell, also, too.

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 9:06 pm

I was supposed to report for active duty in Biloxi on the day Camille came ashore. I stopped in Jackson and went to Biloxi the day after, figuring nobody would care (they didn't — I probably could have waited a week, but then I would have missed the dead horses).

My point, such as it is — hurricanes, like earthquakes and tornadoes, are not fucking metaphors, and if this one happens to miss those fuckers in Tampax, it's gonna hit somebody else. Happily, it sounds like it'll only be a Cat 2.

Arborista August 27, 2012 at 9:33 pm

It's a BIG fuckin' storm, though (we're getting occasional stray rain bands here in SC) so I hope all our Wonketteers stay safe.

As for only being Cat 2, I'll just leave this here as a reminder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_Storm_Allis

bobbert August 27, 2012 at 9:38 pm

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that a Cat 2 couldn't cause damage. Just that it probably won't carry freighters a half mile inland.

Arborista August 27, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Issa transcript reworked by NYT for greater clarity: "What will feel like hurricanes will blow us from the right, and tornadoes blow us from the left, until we can take no more blowing, and are left quaking in our airport restroom stalls. We will bring competitive blowing to Washington this winter, taking the city by storm."

Having a natural disaster in the middle of a man-made (literally, since no one on the platform comittee was equipped with a vagina) disaster might be enough to convince folks of the existence of some sort of supreme deity. It'll take a whole bunch of lightning bolts in fat spotty white asses to make the sale for me. But if that happened, I would be at the church door the next morning wallet open.

Kind of off topic, but you want to know how worried Republicans are about November? Just look at the Republican pollsters trolling in states that aren't even close, but polling them with samples that make them look close. There was another poll out of Michigan, today, by Mitchell Research that shows a tie. This has been a polling trolling this state for months trying to make it look close.

Again, only like two of the six or so regular pollsters that have polled here in Michigan show it tied.

There is NO WAY Michigan is closer than Ohio or Pennsylvania.

The whole series is on YouTube, you know. (Eyes Biff reproachfully)

Biff August 27, 2012 at 11:46 pm

Living, as I do, on the very edge of Hell, I don't have a lot of bandwidth to mess around on the youtubes much…

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 11:51 pm

I'm tellin' ya. The guy is COLD.

MittBorg August 27, 2012 at 11:57 pm

Aw, Biffster! (hugs the Biff) Dammit, why won't people just give the fuck up and elect me god? I would SO take care of the whole world and every creature in it.

glasspusher August 28, 2012 at 12:35 am

Awesome. Although, I wiped out big time on my bike yesterday- nothing broken, but I'm pretty fucked up. Why does Mr Deity hate me?

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:06 am

The hardcore RTLers are not happy at all, and they're starting to erupt with questions. I'm tellin' ya. It's just gonna get better.

Arborista August 28, 2012 at 2:03 am

Yes, how DARE those Dems repeat the words Republican candidates have said & use them as weapons against us?

tessiee August 28, 2012 at 2:36 am

As we all learned in law school, truth is an absolute defense to libel.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:10 am

Aw, ouch, man, sorry to hear that. Hope you're icing or heating or whatever's needed.

FWIW, Mr. Deity hates EV'body. GP.

bikerlaureate August 28, 2012 at 1:33 am

What kind of bike is it?

Mr. Deity has standards.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:10 am

Innit, though. (beams)

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:52 am

More insider humour. So wry.

MilwaukeeKent August 28, 2012 at 2:46 am

Hey! They're not all "short-fingered Vulgarians"– some of them are long-fingered reptiles.

Arborista August 28, 2012 at 2:48 am

And some just have tentacles…

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 3:16 am

(still laughing and re-reading)

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 3:17 am

Now you're just straight-out dissing Cephalopods, man, and we can't have that.

glasspusher August 28, 2012 at 5:24 am

It's a folding bike I've had for 9 years. First time it's folded when it wasn't supposed to…

glasspusher August 28, 2012 at 5:25 am

Yeah, icing everything and meds. We shall overcome!

GemlikeFlame August 28, 2012 at 6:55 am

Shhh, explaining it kills the joke. Just doing my part to make everybody's day a little more surreal.

I have thirty freshmen about to attempt their first class on Game Theory, pray for me.

Upon further reflection, don't.

actor212 August 28, 2012 at 8:21 am

You waited this long to light up, man?

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Dood!

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Hey! I was THERE! We were smoking reefer in the back.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:30 pm

We can do whatever your heart desires, li'l lady! Hahahaha. Dang, this is so fun. Today is JanBrewerMeltdownDay, YAAY!

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:35 pm

We could come over there and exterminate them. With paintball. For the lulz.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:40 pm

On the PLUS side, this is a great opportunity to catch up with all the seasons of Mr. Deity!

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:42 pm

Mycoxafloppin?

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:43 pm

Republicans missed that class, too. Clashed with "religious instruction," I think.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:45 pm

There are BLACK REPUBLICANS at the convention. BLACK FEMALE Republicans. And they're supporters of Todd Akin.

Just kill me now.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Right now, Obama is beating Romney by 40 points or more among: Women; Latinos; Blacks. I don't think Romney can win the election with *just* the votes of white Republicans and teabaggers. Karl Rove is now openly calling for white Democrats to cross the lines and vote for Romney. They're not even bothering to hide it any more.

Biff August 28, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I was drinking from my flask in the balcony. Good times!

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Youth. Totally wasted on the young.

GemlikeFlame August 28, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Not until Mommy and Daddy's check clears, svp.

MittBorg August 28, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Mais oui, cher, certainement.

MittBorg August 29, 2012 at 2:54 am

Dood, it's my undiluted pleasure being as how you are delightfully argumentative and well armed with facts, not to mention witty in the extreme. I am so looking forward to a long, delightful, mutually entertaining relationship, also too. Us aging nerds have to stick together 'n shit.

ID doesn't like any browser AFAIK. Hey, man, it's GREAT for your reputation to be followed around by a Borg. Simply great. Just stay well out of assimilating distance.
