THAT'S LAUGHABLE  9:51 am October 2, 2012

Here Is Your Gif Of Elizabeth Warren Trying And Failing Not To Laugh At Scott Brown

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

All of them Katie Last night’s Massachusetts Senate Debate clusterfuck, “moderated” by David Gregory, almost broke Your Editrix as she melted into a #sloppysloppy puddle of outrage and vapors. But here, via Buzzfeed, is Elizabeth Warren laughing her ass off at Scott Brown’s answer to the question “Who is your model Supreme Court justice?” Brown delayed answering for about five seconds (unable to think of any, certainly) before coming up with the worst possible answer short of whoever decided Dred Scott: rodent-eating space slug Antonin Scalia. Then he said Kennedy. Then Roberts. Then Sotomayor, Diana Ross, Judge Dredd and Judge Reinhold. (The correct answer, obviously, is Judge Judy.) [Buzzfeed]

Jeeezus, I am half way through that book, I was reading it on the plane, and I suppose that was not the best choice of reading material either because in the circumstances I definitely needed something cheerfuller, though on the other hand sometimes sadness can be helped by reading about something way worse off sadder. But damn, that fucking book its just relentlessly grim aint it? War murder death disease mean-ness and cruelty and then just more. I am starting not to care for McCarthy even despite the amazing stark beauty of the prose. Insert a ceasura in the heartbeat of the world, damn thats still good though.

Doktor Zoom October 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

If Cormac McCarthy ever seems too cheerful for you, try Donald Ray Pollock's The Devil All the Time, which is kind of like Flannery O'Connor crossed with Natural Born Killers.

Chase would be Brown's model – corrupt, conniving, backstabbing the President he claims to want to work with. We can only hope he can be neutralized as effectively as kicking ol' Salmon upstairs worked out.

I'm surprised he didn't come up with "Three generations of imbeciles are enough" Oliver Wendell Holmes.

I was thinking of Holmes when I wrote that diatribe a week or so ago about how the only evil the modern GOP hasn't embraced yet is eugenics.

But that would mean admitting Planned Parenthood wasn't satanic, so we can't have that.

Thats what I wrote, they would be full-on Nazi with eugenics and all except the fetus-worshippers are preventing it! Isn't it ironic?

It's really not. But, it is nice that these wretchedly wrong-headed people with their lives dedicated to such as controlling others' healthcare needs come in handy in the "let's not start a moron's version of the holocaust," I suppose.

No modern Republican could possibly, under any circumstances, say anything nice about a guy who famously said "I like paying taxes, with them I buy civilization".

Ah, but that could be morphed into "I like other people paying taxes, with them I buy civilization". Sure, you could look it up and see that it's wrong but how many right-wingers know how to use a credible source?

David Gregory is one of the worst moderators of a debate I've witnessed. The rule for debates is that moderators need to either employed or picked by the fine folks at PBS. Last night's event looked like foreplay between Gregory and Scott Brown. David Gregory created a cluster fuck in the first 3 minutes.

And Elizabeth Warren did well in communicating her position.

Is Juggs still a thing? I am so behind in my paper-porn. I only recently learned that Swank is no longer a naked thing, it has been absconded by some weirdo decorating people, which I only found out when some Bible-moms I know "liked" it on the dreaded fb. I was like, hey, they like Swank? Cool! Then, disappoint. I think further research would have been merited. If no one but me has heard of Swank, I am TELLING YOU it was real. I know this.

BaldarTFlagass October 2, 2012 at 10:39 am

I'm way behind on that stuff too. I recently got a promotional ad in the mail to subscribe to Playboy for like $15 bucks for a year, decided what the hell. I hadn't looked at one of those in probably 25 years. It's a lot thinner than it used to be. First issue I got had a pretty good interview with Richard Dawkins and a couple other decent articles, so that was cool. The girls are all still cute, but the tattoos and shaved pussies (trim the yard and mow the lawn, you don't have to go scorched earth!) don't do much for me. I remembered liking the cartoons when I was younger, but they all seem pretty sophomoric nowadays (I guess after over 50 years, the well of sex jokes is pretty dry).

FakaktaSouth October 2, 2012 at 10:45 am

15 bucks is way cheap! I remember when they would get like 45 or so. I did love reading that mag. I haven't got any guy friends who get their porn that way now though, but from the bit I have seen, it seems to me that there used to be so much more variety in the ladies, and now it's just a bore. Oh look, big old tee-tons and yeah, the other has started looking all the same. Bor-ing. I still enjoy all the creative ways to make a gal bend over though, oh look, I am brushing a horse. Bent all the way over. Very natural, just like my boobs, hoohah and head hair.

True story: it was originally published by a bunch of gay men as a parody of Playboy. They'd find the ugliest, nastiest women and do pictorials.

Watching the debate live on TV, my husband yelled out "Scalia!" (as a joke) while Brown was hemming and hawing. AND THEN BROWN ACTUALLY SAID IT.

your husband is a genius! peel back the g.o.p. skin & you will find an asshole.

vaginista October 2, 2012 at 10:25 am

"Scalia, Kennedy, and that one guy, y'know, uh, Nugent!"
Probs not what he said, but he sure looks like a Nuge fan.

Blind justice in the form of the judge's seeing-eye dog is good, too.

Political Justice!

IFNOTNOW October 2, 2012 at 10:35 am

Love Warren.Roger B. Taney was the judge, not Dred Scott.

rickmaci October 2, 2012 at 10:37 am

Given this guy won the special election, his opponent must have been the least capable candidate ever.

actor212 October 2, 2012 at 10:52 am

Oh yea. Anybody who can put down the Red Sox in Boston (listening, Martha Coakley?) deserved to lose to this loser.

prommie October 2, 2012 at 11:27 am

Is a special election like the special olympics? That would explain it!

HobbesEvilTwin October 2, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Well, the Dems certainly ran a very "special" candidate that time around.

PugglesRule October 2, 2012 at 10:37 am

Mine would be a tie between Wapner and Judy. Either of them would do better than that assclown Scalia.

prommie October 2, 2012 at 10:38 am

Brown should enter a beauty pageant in South Carolina! He'd fit right in!

PuckStopsHere October 2, 2012 at 10:51 am

I call bullshit: How could Antonin Scalia be anybody's favorite anything?

BerkeleyBear October 2, 2012 at 11:16 am

Well he was Mama Scalia's favorite little boy. Can't you tell from the smug assface's attitude that someone held him as he cried after all the girls laughed at lil Nino?

anniegetyerfun October 2, 2012 at 12:08 pm

He's among my favorite assholes.

Will there be anything to talk about today besides Elizabeth Warren and Red Injun stereotypes?

BaldarTFlagass October 2, 2012 at 10:57 am

Maybe Sarah Palin will say something stupid. I know George Will did: http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/10/02/9400

Esteev October 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

Shorter George Will: Obama’s administration is in shambles, yet he is prospering politically because he's black. It has nothing to do with the crap candiate my team nominated. Poop.

sullivanst October 2, 2012 at 11:16 am

… and the crap candidate has nothing to do with the fact that making defeating the President your party's #1 priority when the nation is in the midst of the worst economic conditions in a lifetime is the kind of thing that only happens when your entire party is raging assholes who wouldn't be elected dogcatcher by a sane, informed electorate.

Esteev October 2, 2012 at 11:20 am

Sullivanst, you're missing the point. Obama is still black.

docterry6973 October 2, 2012 at 10:59 am

Scalia and Sotomayor? Way to state your convictions, Scotty.

102415 October 2, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Well, those were the "S" justices.

Monsieur_Grumpe October 2, 2012 at 11:00 am

She giggled like a little girl. Can Brown do that? I don’t think so.

102415 October 2, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Oh, yes he can.

OT, but it looks like a judge has effectively shut down the Pennsylvania voter ID sham. http://news.yahoo.com/pennsylvanias-voter-id-law-

James Michael Curley October 2, 2012 at 11:43 am

I'm sure, now that the nine dancing bears are in the house, Scalia will jump in with his buddies from the 5th Circuit and expedite this on a fast track. However, it is going as I predicted several weeks ago, I just wish Holder could have filed a brief on it so the only issue wasn't whether the trial court should have issued a stay until the appeal process is over. On the other hand, letting it meander up to the PA Supreme Court provides close to enough of the scheduling problems so that the law will have no effect on November 6.

sullivanst October 2, 2012 at 11:54 am

The balance of rights so clearly favors a stay, it shouldn't even be a question. That it might be tells you where our judiciary is at in terms of the rampant politicization talk of which so enrages "Justice" "let me rant at the President from the bench on a matter that has nothing to do with this case" Scalia.

James Michael Curley October 2, 2012 at 1:17 pm

I agree, it shouldn’t be a question. It should not have been an issue to count only selected counties in FL in 2000, but that is not what the USSC decided. Of course Gore’s lawyers could have made better decisions also.

Generation[redacted] October 2, 2012 at 11:12 am

Uh oh. Ten minutes to Wapner. We're definitely locked in this box with no TV.

Esteev October 2, 2012 at 11:15 am

I am madly in love with Elizabeth Warren.

SayItWithWookies October 2, 2012 at 11:18 am

I'm so glad I don't live in Massachusetts where the people can't decide between a classy, intelligent outsider who'd work her butt off to make the finance industry safe for the people or an entitled ex-moddle who knows how to stand still while he's being dressed and which X to stand on when he's talking. Because I live in fuckin' Virginia where the people get to decide between George "I have a folksy voice now" Allen and Tim Kaine, who, as a moderate Democrat, will do anything a right-winger tells him to. Still voting for Kaine, though.

Radiotherapy October 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

No macaca.

Jus_Wonderin October 2, 2012 at 11:31 am

"ex-moddle" is very J.K. Rowlingesque. I hope it was intentional.

SayItWithWookies October 2, 2012 at 11:36 am

Jezebel actually had a LOLModdle thing going on for a while, and I enjoyed their eccentric spelling as it emphasized the idiocy.

The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one – I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.

tessiee October 2, 2012 at 1:13 pm

And this thermos.

Zepster October 2, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Are you sure she's not sniffing her fingers? She might have been mimeographing some hand-outs just before the debate.

decentcitizen October 2, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Scalia? Because I can read the Founding Fathers' minds who coincidentally agree with my particular prejudices.

whatever_dc October 2, 2012 at 12:51 pm

i think a better question would have been: which supreme court justice would you rather see nekkid?

102415 October 2, 2012 at 4:41 pm

I actually own a complete set of Supreme Court Justices Paper Dolls.

Cut'em out, dress'em up, and let'em adjudicate!

They do not present a pretty or hopeful picture. I'm looking at you Nino.

lucky you! take a nude pix of him. i want to see if he has any "baytzim." he is such a putz i want to be sure he has all the parts.

Fox n Fiends October 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

"ummm uh pickup truck, pickup truck, dump truck…..Scalia!"

ttommyunger October 2, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Not polite to laugh at the "special" folk among us, Elizabeth. I did not use the "R" word, Becca.

Right, because can't say it if it's true!

Katydid October 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I was so mad at Brown's hostility and general obnoxiousness last night, at his "professor" bullshit, that I donated to Warren's campaign today. I would LOVE to see her wipe that smirk off his face. With votes, of course.

glasspusher October 2, 2012 at 8:30 pm

It's time for all the Dems to laugh at their opponents! Remember: clowns can't hurt us, as long as we keep laughing at them.

iamrrm October 2, 2012 at 9:48 pm

Some thuglican is gonna steal that GIF, speed it up, and say Warren was doing injun war whoops the whole time Brown was trying to speak.

idrobny October 3, 2012 at 5:44 am

if mass. puts "pretty boy" brown back in the senate they will get what they deserve; NOTHING!

prommie October 2, 2012 at 11:37 am

Now you are messing with my mind, man. I like you when you are all Herr Professor Doktor pedantic on my ass, though.

prommie October 2, 2012 at 11:42 am

And don't you make me pull out my Fowler's English Usage. Damn I forgot about that one, noone's made me care enough about this kinda argument in so many years. See what you do to me?

sullivanst October 2, 2012 at 11:39 am

Yes, and you'd still have to be a wholesale believer in a swathe of racist tropes to believe that might be an electoral advantage. Oh, hai George Will!

FakaktaSouth October 2, 2012 at 11:40 am

Now, pedantic, that is correct. I like pedantic. Pedantic on your ass. Look out!

tessiee October 2, 2012 at 1:01 pm

I like to be pedantic, but they have to be at least 18.

Esteev October 2, 2012 at 11:48 am

If we cant believe in racist tropes, what do we have left?

sullivanst October 2, 2012 at 12:27 pm

If by "we" you mean "Republicans", well, there's still misogynist and homophobic tropes, I guess ;)

On the former, viz. last night's debate's 'stop talking while I'm interrupting' theme.
