James Mountain Inhofe may not be the craziest tool currently in the Repug Shed, but he’ll serve as a fitting representative bobble-head for the whole lot of them in our year-end retrospective of some of the more insane Repugs we’ve enjoyed pillorying in 2012.
The new year always bring fresh opportunities for renewal and success, but 2013— and well, every year— is also guaranteed to bring US another twelve month’s worth of shockingly insane shenanigans by actually elected Repuglicants, wannabe elected Reptilicans, along with the usual dung-cart load of Right Wing media pundicks and professional bloviators. The clock is ticking down, so let’s not waste another minute. Here in no particular order, of course, are some of our favorite insane Repugs, depicted in our favorite way:
“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds;
our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“The [politicians] of today think deeply instead of clearly.
One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.”
No, that’s not a carrot. John Boehner was, until recently, the undisputed leader of all that wreaks crazy on the Hill. But times are changing, and an eight inch proboscis doesn’t carry the weight it once did, especially with the elephantine Tea Bag trunks that are wagging today.
“Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely
or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear.”
― Bertrand Russell, Unpopular Essays
Jan Brewer ran unopposed for our unofficial but heart-felt finger-wagging award as the Rudest Bitch in Government. Rudest Bitch Not in Government was a three-way tie between Mr. Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and Pam Geller.
While we’re talking bitches:
“The stuff that comes out of Sean Hannity’s mouth has been infuriating. The stuff that Bill O’Reilly says has been illogical. You go up and down the schedule and it’s insanity over there. The number of lies, perpetuated, promoted by Fox News is just shameful and it hurts everybody.”
We admit to heart palpitations over the closeness of Michele Bachmann’s last race; cuz we need one totally insane person in the Congress just so we never let up on our efforts to, well, get all the insane people out of Congress.
“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority,
but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”
Nobody moves the insane in the membrane goalposts farther or faster than Donald tRump, who just cancelled construction on his insane, literally underwater, 24 million dollar boondoggle “catering hall.”
“We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called the idiot culture. Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface and which can provide harmless fun; but the culture itself. For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal.”
“In America, the criminally insane rule and the rest of us,
or the vast majority of the rest of us, either do not care,
do not know, or are distracted and properly brainwashed into acquiescence.”
Hucka-Chickabee is off the diet and on the crazy train again with his insane comments over the Newtown massacre. His dependability as a nut job is often staggering, but now it’s also caused by his gross tonnage.
Resplendent in her make-believe Presi-Queen victory dress over First Runner-up Loser Carrie What’s-her-name and Second Runner-up Loser Willard Romney, Sarah wore an elegant strapless gown with a fitted ruched bodice accented with gorgeous lace piquewadeens¹ and hand-beaded details; the silk and taffeta fabric was spun exclusively for Mrs Palin by 100% American Evangelical silk worms. Romney’s dress, on the other hand, was valued at over $14 million dollars, and was custom made on Planet Kolob from pure unrefined evil.
“There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life.”
I’m already feeling a deep disturbance in the Force, so Ima stop here.
Best Wishes for a fabulous and progressively great new year, because we have no choice.
Power to the People.
Live in Light and Love.
¹ Yeah we make shit up.
