I really don’t understand how you’re supposed to effectively govern this country when tens of millions of likely voters are fucking retarded:

Only about a third of Americans (34%) know that the government’s bailout of banks and financial institutions was enacted under the Bush administration. Nearly half (47%) incorrectly say that the Troubled Asset Relief Program — widely known as TARP — was signed into law by President Obama.

Some fucktard GOP Christianist in Missouri is using some pretty incendiary language during his run to get himself elected to gubmint:
One thing I like to say is: America is great, not because of our genetics. We’re great because we created a place and space where people can be free. And they can choose Christ, they can choose to be faithful. They can worship, and they find their way to the Lord. And — or some of them don’t. We sure want them all to, but some of them don’t.

Part of that freedom — when you take a government and you impose, and take away all your choices. One of the choices you take away is to find the Lord. And to find your savior.

And that’s one of the things that’s most destructive about the growth of government. It’s this taking away of that freedom. The freedom — the ultimate freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation. And to find Christ, for me and you.

And I think that’s one of the things that we have to be very, very aware of. That the Obama Administration and Congressman Carnahan are doing to us.


I know you’re all gonna slam me for my child-like naiveté on this but are there really so few good, decent politicians out there with any shred of integrity or responsibility?

Are there any depths to which most any politician will not sink?

Are there simply no limits to what these greased-up sociopaths will say to the ignorant masses to stoke up their animal fear-based instincts to get themselves elected?

Disagreeing with Obama on health care policy is fine.

Saying that Obama wants to take away “all your choices” and your choice to “find the Lord“?  That’s serious danger talk.

Remember the days when we had a few responsible Republicans who batted shit like this away?  No longer.

YouTube celebrity and Tea Party favorite, Rick Barber, apparently didn’t have a firm enough commitment from Presidents Washington and Lincoln to get the Republican vote out in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional district runoff today. Maybe his supporters were too busy LARPing to make it to the polls. It wasn’t even close — Councilwoman Martha Washington Roby defeated him 61% to 39%. Maybe Barber can play dress up and do a Dodge Challenger ad.

Here’s one of Barber’s ads, filmed in his basement, to jog your memory.
