This is Your Brain on Stupid

Wingnut Chick: Do Drugs and You Might End Up Like That Guy Who Became President

Maybe you’re on the fence when it comes to Marijuana legalization – you tried it at a Cranberries concert in the ’90s and didn’t understand all the fuss, but you’re worried your commute to work will be cluttered with one too many drum circles. Perhaps you hate the stuff, but you’re like, sooo anti-Fed you’d rather see states individually address the issue. Whatever silly reason you have for not wholeheartedly throwing your money and support behind the War on Drugs, former Texas (and current Texas Eagle Forum president) GOP Chair Cathie Adams will bring you to your senses with her watertight argument against Marijuana legalization: if you do drugs, you may not be able to memorize lengthy speeches while juggling the most intense workload of any professional in the country!

Speaking before a Grassroots America We the People “Call to Action” meeting, Adams highlighted what we can all expect should laws prohibiting drugs continue to soften:

…if we legalize it, will we empty out our jails and will we be safe for ever more? No. I’m telling you, Barack Hussein Obama has got to have a teleprompter because he fried his brain on drugs.

If we legalize drugs, more and more Americans may require teleprompters to make televised speeches to millions of people after attending nonstop meetings with foreign leaders and military strategists. Beyond needing a teleprompter to sort out his drug-addled brain, Barack Hussein Obama wants you to hit rock bottom so you’ll need a teleprompter too!

I don’t know why we’re not calling him what he is as a Marxist. It’s as if, when the wall fell that communism died; it didn’t. Today, it is green on the outside and red on the inside. It is as red as ever and Barack Obama is implementing his green agenda, which is Marxism, and that is exactly why our economy is hurting as badly as it is and why twenty three million people are still out of work.

That’s right – despite Obama’s Department of Justice and its aggressive and often unprecedented contributions to the War on Drugs, the President has a secret “green agenda” that promotes lax drug policies with the hope that the Feds can one day constantly stream Marxist propaganda to its vulnerable, drug scrambled citizens via government-issue teleprompter.

Suck on that, Colorado.

    George W didn't need a teleprompter. He had Cheney's hand up his ass to make his mouth move.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      And that was not the soft option, either.

    • local242thug

      dubya had them devise that stupid flip-book for his speeches, because he got cross-eyed and hypnotized and stopped talking every time he saw words moving up a screen.

      and it was so subtle! you almost couldn't see him turning the pages as he broke for applause lines!

      now that guy</> was a masterful speechifier. no drugs in that noggin. no sir.

    Y'know, I've always found that drugs bring out the best in me. [spit!] But that's because I'm a true American, and not some kind of Kenyan Mooselimb. [spit!] After a hard day's work in the meth lab, I like to sit back and enjoy a little moonshine and a bit of oxycontin. [spit!] In the fine tradition of the Founders, I believe in no niggers, no homos, and no taxes on alcohol.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Reading that word salad second blockquote paragraph of hers, I would say she could have used a keyboard-prompter.

    • James Michael Curley

      Or a little less of the maui-wowie.

      That's not my bong.

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    So pot makes you a commie? I'm confused. Where the fuck is my teleprompter?

    • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Rebootably_Joe

      I can offer a second data point! I totally smoked pot in college, and then five years after I graduated, plutocratic douchebags and the mainstreaming of hard-right rhetoric turned me into a socialist! If that's not an obvious case of cause and effect, I have no idea what is.

  • memzilla

    Looks like somebody's car elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Rebootably_Joe

    That is totally unfair! I mean, Republicans' Lord and Savior, Ronald Reagan used teleprompters while he was in office, and it's not as though that whole time, he was hiding some sort of neurodegenerative disorder that would have called into question his fitness to-

    Oh, um, nevermind.

    • jodyleek

      That teleprompter was not there to help Ronny Raygun remember what to say, no. It was to remind him not to be too awesome!

    • bikerlaureate

      Relevant yet again.

      Is Cathie too ignorant to make an argument that doesn't ignore the past fifty years – or is it simply an unprincipled lust for power?

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Someone obviously "intercepted" her ability to think clearly and sensibly.

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Drugs make you a Kenyan muslin socialist.

  • Estproph

    So, is Obama going to get on top of a skyscraper and jump off because he thinks he can fly, just like at the end of Reefer Madness? Or maybe drive too fast and run over someone? Or shoot someone at a party?

    • James Michael Curley

      Bamz will just toke up, sit down at a piano do some of that devil inspired jazz.

    Jump right from drug policy to the President is a Marxist–true wingnuttery.

      Well, she is a "Texas Eagle Forum president and a Grassroots America We the People “Call to Action” person. Really?

    Go ahead! We won't mind. Secret Service will pwn you so hard.

    • HistoriCat

      Oh – I would pay to see that beatdown!

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Where’s my free teleprompter?

    • jodyleek

      There's an app for that on your Obamaphone, dude.

  • Terry

    A related aside: I heard an item on NPR yesterday about the Colorado governor signing the document that makes personal use of pot legal in the state. The people there to celebrate where exactly the people you don't want to show up on the TV or radio. Duuuuuude……this is soooo cooool…..it's legal now…..I'm sooooo baked………

    I never smoked pot not so much because my parents told me not to (they did) but because it seemed so stupid. The folks I knew who smoked would end up sitting around watching cartoons or some such thing and wasting a whole day or evening giggling. I had no desire to spend hours in a stinking basement eating junk food.

    • noodlesalad

      I hear ya, but I'd still feel safer in that crowd than in a crowd that was drunk. My guess is nobody was assaulted afterwards.

      • BadKitty904

        Plus fewer assault rifles.

      • Terry

        True. They tend to lack energy until the run out of pot or junk food, then are on a bit of a mission.

        I don't think pot is necessarily addictive, unless you are prone to addiction, but has made some people waste a good bit of time sometimes years.

        • noodlesalad

          True, Terry, but in that respect it's no different from video games, television or our beloved Wonket.

          • finallyhappy

            what- is this the internet?

    • James Michael Curley

      Some of us would toke up and fire up the motorcycle and do 80 mph down Boulevard of the Allies with renewed confidence we could make the turn into the Civic Arena in time for the concert.

    • ZombieForceD

      "I had no desire to spend hours in a stinking basement eating junk food." But that's a requirement for employment at NRO.

    • Guppy

      The folks I knew who smoked would end up sitting around watching cartoons or some such thing

      Wait… that requires pot?

      Also too: does this explain Dok's Brony proclivities?

  • JustPixelz

    "…fried his brain on drugs."

    Please proceed Ms Adams.

    He also fried bin Laden's brain … with votes bullets.

    Wingers have fried their brains on Kochaine.

    • PubOption

      Numerous wingnut politicians have Kochaine running around in their pockets.

    • BadKitty904

      AND kicked your candidate's ass. So, your point is….?

  • BigSkullF*ckingDog

    Cathie Adams looks like someone who never got the chance to do drugs because her peer group was busy shunning her for being such an awful person.

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ Chow Yun Flat

    Anyone calling Obama a Marxist shows complete ignorance of Marx. And, most likely, everything else.

    • finallyhappy

      I have heard that the President is a Marxist- and is especially fond of Harpo

    • TheGyrus

      People calling Obama a Marxist must really piss off actual Marxists.

      • http://chaosmarxism.blogspot.com doloras

        It certainly does. An actual Marxist wouldn't be all with the drones or the market-based health insurance scheme or the keeping Bradley Manning in jail.

    Teleprompters, according to the nytimes, have been in use for some time Ms Cunt Eagle. In fact, president Dwight Eisenhower was the first US president to use one. He used it for a State of the Union speech. Are we then to take as fact that Ike blew out his brains on drugs while having sex with his biographer when he was stationed in Europe?
