that's laughable

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

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.

          The esteemed Senator Landingstrip.

  • Bezoar

    If he was asked about favorite statesmen, would he have said "Hitler, and Gandhi"?

    • idrobny

      not gandhi, maybe stalin?

  • Indiepalin

    Judd Nelson

  • Guppy

    Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, who appeared on money and had such a wonderful, job-creating bank named after him!

    How couldn't a Republican love him?

    • BornInATrailer

      Forget the bank, he had a delicious fish named after him!

    • BerkeleyBear

      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.

      • Guppy

        And I totally forgot how he said secession is OK! Teabaggers love this guy!

  • PsycWench

    And a picture for the new dictionary entry "Palinesque" presents itself.

    • Terry

      He did, however, do a bit better than Madame Palin. He could name a justice when she couldn't name a newspaper. A low bar, sure, but he cleared it.

  • JustPixelz

    I thought he said "Judge David Gregory" (wink, wink).

  • Pragmatist2

    Go easy on Scotty! It is really hard to express your beliefs when you don't actually have any.

    • ThankYouJeebus

      He believes in the Highest Bidder system of government.

  • PsycWench

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

    • prommie

      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.

      • BerkeleyBear

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

        • prommie

          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?

          • FakaktaSouth

            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.

          • prommie

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

          • FakaktaSouth

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

          • tessiee

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

          • prommie

            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?

      • billy_reuben

        Don't give them any ideas.

    • sullivanst

      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".

      • PsycWench

        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?

    At first I thought she was trying to gouge out her eyes like the rest of us.
    It was indeed droll, however, to watch the palooka's reptilian brain slowly awaken from its torpor upon hearing it's mouth answer: "Scalia" …. Danger! Danger! Retreat! Retreat! … "Roberts!" ….no he is Scalia's pal … "Kennedy!" …no, nobody knows him … "Chimmichanga!!" …whew, that was a close call, zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    All of them, Katie

  • fartknocker

    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.

    • idrobny

      can't stand gregory on meet the press either. he is such a lightweight. i am afraid the ghost of russert is watching him so he won't be long as moderator the way his ratings are tanking

      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

        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

          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.

      • Stevola

        A friend of mine used to read Swank. A lot. Not me, a friend.

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

    • BaldarTFlagass

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

      • Esteev

        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

          … 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

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

          • sullivanst

            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!

          • Esteev

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

          • sullivanst

            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.

  • docterry6973

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

    • 102415

      Well, those were the "S" justices.

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

      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

      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

        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

          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.

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    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.

    • Jus_Wonderin

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

      • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

        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.

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

  • decentcitizen

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

  • whatever_dc

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

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

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

    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

    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.

    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.
