Lots of GOP Derp Is Still Derp

Thomas Lindaman writes:

Yes, it's that time of year again where we get to look back and remember some of the highlights (and lowlights) that we've come to know and love/loathe.

Democrat to Watch: Hillary Clinton. With Hillary leaving her post as Secretary of State, the road is wide open to explore her options. This could be problematic for a lot of people within the party, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden, the former because of her role in the Benghazi controversy, and the latter because of the calls for her to run for President in 2016...possibly against Biden.

Considering you were wrong about Obama winning for the past two elections, neither I nor anyone else with functioning brain is concerned about that right now. lol

Democrat to Forget: Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She went from being an annoying, mindless blonde Congresswoman from Florida to being...an annoying, mindless blonde Congresswoman from Florida who happens to be head of the DNC. Although the Left may think she's great for staying on message even after being exposed as a liar, the fact she's such a bold and moronic liar turns off most people from listening to her message.

ROFL, Boy is Lindaman pissed.  Notice how Lindaman doesn't provide a single example to support his statements (a very common tactic of his).  lol  Sorry, Lindaman... Schultz will never reach Michele Bachmann  or Sarah Palin levels of idiocy.

Republican to Watch: Marco Rubio. With Republicans focusing more on the Hispanic vote, all eyes are looking to Marco Rubio to see if he can bridge the communication gap. His success or failure will have an immediate impact on the 2014 midterm elections, not to mention the 2016 Presidential elections.

Rubio can't even be truthful about his parents coming to America.

Rubio's parents were both immigrants from Cuba.  They did not become citizens of the United States until Rubio was four years old which means that Rubio's parents, when he was born, were not citizens of the United States.

I demand to see Rubio's long form birth certificate!

Come on, Lindaman!  You claimed Obama's citizenship was "questionable", you nutball birther.  So where's your poutrage now?

You think Rubio will get the Latino votes?  HA!  What you Republicans don't understand is that all other Hispanic groups distrust and dislike Cubans. Because the older, Republican-supporting Cubans were mostly supporters of the incredibly corrupt Batista regime.  And, unlike other groups, Cubans are granted "refugee" status when they land in the US.  If Cubans get caught in the water, they are returned to Cuba. If Cubans make it to land, they get refugee status and a quick move up to permanent resident alien.  I am sure Mexicans wish they received that special status right away. Rubio will not garner support among Latino voters. And that's not even including the fact that the GOP does everything it can to discriminate against non-whites.  Cubans are not treated the same from Latinos as say Mexicans, Equadorans, or Guatamalans.

If Rubio (who is on a fucking SCIENCE committee) honestly doesn't know that the Earth's age is measured in billions of years, not thousands, then he's an idiot and not qualified to run anything larger than a truck stop. 

Republican to Forget: Mitt Romney. Remember when everyone said Mitt Romney was the only candidate who could beat Barack Obama? So do I...in 2008. You know, when he couldn't even beat Mike Huckabee? Now, in 2012, we found out he couldn't even beat Obama.

Covered that HERE.

Flash in the Pan: Occupy Wall Street. The media darlings of 2011 were nowhere to be found this year. You know, aside from the Andrew Breitbart documentary "Occupy Exposed," that is. As it turns out, Occupy Wall Street was a bigger bomb this year than "Cloud Atlas." Maybe it was "Pot Cloud Atlas."

Zombie Breitbart's documentary was not called "Occupy Exposed."  It was called "Occupy Unmasked."

According to you, Moore's last film indicates he's a failure since it's "only" the 13th highest box office ever for a documentary.  "Occupy Unmasked" was shown on... two screens. 

"Occupy Unmasked" did so well, right-wingers like you can't even remember the name!  HAHAHAHAAAAA!!

So... any evidence to back up what the documentary was claiming?  Waiting.  Still waiting.  Still waiting...  Couldn't possibly be because you never watched it?  Well, that's understandable, since nobody else did.

OWS were "Media Darlings"?  Since when? 

Oh yeah... those OWS protestors just sat around smoking pot, right?  Oh, wait...

I bet it pisses you off that the OWS protestors did something productive and helpful without asking for publicity in return.  And they did it without an anti-government or right-wing Christian agenda, unlike Beck's  "Restoring Love" sham.  They helped the victims of Sandy, while you Teabaggers said "FUCK YOU" to them (as usual).

It's so sad, OWS has vanished without a trace!

Or not.

Meanwhile, Teabaggers are trying to change their name. lol

And one more thing... you forgot to call them "Astroturfed"!  Is it because you are finally admitting you can't find a single source whatsoever that they were astroturfed?  You know, unlike the Teabaggers, where  there's overwhelming proof beyond all doubt that they're astroturfed?  Time will tell if you're admitting it.

The Real Deal: Benghazi. No matter how much Leftists have tried to downplay the Benghazi situation, it keeps coming back because there are still a number of unanswered questions related to what the State Department knew and when they knew it. And it's not just Republicans asking questions at this point. As long as the questions remain, Benghazi will not be going away anytime soon.

 The right-wing talking points on Benghazi have been bullshit.

BenghaziGate is right up there with all the other "gates" you guys have been trying to pull.  You failed miserably on all of them.  This will be no different.  But hey, keeping raping the Benghazi victims' dead bodies; I expect no less from you guys.

Raw Deal: Media treatment of George Zimmerman. In an attempt to paint the Trayvon Martin killing as a hate crime, media outlets (NBC most notably) took liberties with the facts to fit their narrative. First, Zimmerman was a white man (he's not). 

The initial reports said he was white, because that's what the goddamn POLICE REPORT said he was.  Sheesh!

Then, he was Jewish (he's not).

It depends on what you consider Jewish.  His father is half-Jewish.  I don't consider Zimmerman Jewish.  The early reports before his heritage was revealed implied he could have been Jewish simply because of his surname.

Regardless, what does Zimmerman being Jewish or not have to do with him persuing an unarmed teenager, confronting him, then shooting him?

Then, he ignored the 911 operator's instructions (he didn't). 

 Yes, he did.  The 911 call clearly has Zimmerman continuing to run after he was advised not to follow.

Then, he shot Martin in cold blood (he didn't).


Then, Martin lied about facial injuries he sustained (he didn't).

Martin can't lie or tell the truth about facial injuries he sustained.  He's dead.

Quick, Lindaman!  Edit your post before your readers notice the mistake!  Whoops, all your readers already noticed it.  Me. ROFL!

And Zimmerman did lie about the facial injuries he sustained.  He said he had blood in his eyes and couldn't see.  The photo taken of him in the squad car, before he was cleaned up, indicates otherwise.  Not one drop of blood in his eye areas.  Explain that!

At some point, the media had to have said, "You know, maybe we should do a bit more research before we throw out more accusations that will bite us in the ass later."

If you did any research on Zimmerman, you wouldn't be defending him.  The 911 call and Zimmerman's reenactment alone prove he's a repeated liar. 

I'm still waiting for any right-wingers to explain why Zimmerman would claim he fell down immediately at the "T" after being punched in the face, yet Martin's body is 40 FEET DOWN FROM THE "T."  Zimmerman is lying because he ran after Martin down that "T", and that's where the fight happened.

And I'm still waiting for any right-wingers to explain why Zimmerman would claim that Martin was trying to grab his gun, but also claim that after Zimmerman shot him that was the moment when Martin realized Zimmerman had a gun.  Explain that!  Explain it!

Why would an innocent man lie?  Zimmerman lied about Martin "grabbing for his gun" because otherwise it would prove that Zimmerman was not in fear of his life when he shot Martin.

You guys demonize Martin as a thug because he wrote "WTF" on a locker, while ignoring Zimmerman's past of punching police officers and molesting his cousin.  But you have to defend Zimmerman, since all the Anti-Black and Pro-Gun nuts have to defend him.  In other words, right-wingers.  You know, like this right-wing former GOP executive director.

You smeared Martin's family.  Where's those hoodie sales, Lindaman?  Where's those for-profit CD's?
Zimmerman is being called out on his repeated proven lies.  The best you guys can do is make shit up, ignore the overwhelming evidence against Zimmerman, and bitch about darkies.  You know, like the "New Black Panthers" comprised of six whole members.

Defining Moment: The first Presidential debate between Obama and Romney. No one expected the outcome of the first debate because to that point Romney appeared to be unable to command attention while Obama seemed cool and confident. However, the first debate changed that dynamic and the outcome of the election, in my opinion, because it created the image Obama wanted: that he was the underdog in the election. Once that was established, the rest of the election season was altered to his benefit.

 Romney had the fire in the first debate, but all he did was lie

But lying doesn't matter to inbred Americans.  The important thing is that Romney told that uppity nagger whatfor.

Obama was too nice in the first debate.  He corrected that in the subsequent debates. 

Missed Opportunity: The "fiscal cliff." Hearing the Left and the media talk about the "fiscal cliff" was a great opportunity for Republicans to not only address the central issue, but do so in a way that would help reverse the tide of the 2012 elections. Having wasteful spending remain on the table while hinting at the possibility of tax hikes is morally, intellectually, and politically wrong. But to the so-called Republican leadership in Washington, it's better to capitulate to a bad idea than to fight for a good one.

You GOPers have only yourselves to blame about that.  Stop saying "no" to every single fucking thing that comes your way as a solution.  How's that working out?

R. I. P.: Current TV. Al Gore's real contribution to the Information Age is on the verge of financial collapse. As of this writing, I believe you might be able to buy it outright with loose change found in your couch cushions, and it's a shame, what with all the big name Leftists like...well...there was Keith Olbermann.

We'll cover that in the Al-Jazeera post.

Man of the Year: Barack Obama. This was a no-brainer because anybody who could win reelection with stated unemployment at around 8%, real unemployment being almost double that, and with an economy that is turning around slower than the QE II has to be doing something noteworthy.

I guess these job growth charts of PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS are part of the liberal conspiracy.

No matter how you fail to spin it, things are now better than when Bush ran this country into the fucking ditch.  The only reason it's not growing faster, is because of GOPers blocking everything.

Now, hand me my Obama Phone, would you?

You mean the PRE-OBAMA extension of the RONALD REAGAN Administration's Lifeline phone program, motherfucker? 

But leave it to right-wingers to let poor people die because they can't call for help.  Good Christian souls, all of them.

"Obamaphone", just like "Welfare Queen", is just a right-wing dog-whistle word for "Nignogs getting free stuff."  You're fooling nobody.

The Anna Nicole Smith Lifetime Achievement Award: Sandra Fluke. Who knew complaining about birth control in front of a staged Congressional hearing could parlay into a lucrative job as a Leftist tool all because Rush Limbaugh called you a slut on air? Well, Sandra, I don't think you're a slut. An activist who is only half as smart as a turnip? Yeah, that's more like it.

So coward Lindaman's argument against having an accomplished women's rights activist and lawyer who has worked with victims of domestic violence and human trafficking introduce the president is... fatass drug addict Rush Limbaugh had a week-long hatefest about her on his show?

You don't think it had anything to do with her being brave enough to come forward and talk about the fact that women use birth control pills for medical conditions other than preventing pregnancy? And that Georgetown refuses to let students - who are forced to buy the insurance as a condition of enrollment - use the insurance they paid for to get birth control pills, even for life-threatening medical conditions? And that this is happening regardless of the woman's religion, breaching her religious freedoms as well as dictating how she spends her own money?  And then having  Rush call her a slut repeatedly for days on end and taking it like an adult.  Not to mention spineless cowards like Lindaman who side-step Limbaugh's comments and instead continue to make shit up about Fluke.

It's her right to testify before Congress, idiot.

Good for Obama for recognizing Fluke's resilience and courage in the face of a right wing hate.  Good for him to continue reminding lady voters that the GOP are not now, nor have never been, their friends. And especially good for him to be trolling the crap out of pederast Limbaugh.

To non-Republicans, he's saying "Remember this insanity the Republicans were frothing about? We do."

That's why Lindaman's butthurt.  She hasn't vanished into thin air, so the proven constant right-wing war on women is still something people can't ever forget.

Lindaman's also butthurt because nobody could find a scandal on her.  Unlike Sam the unqualified and unlicensed Plumber.

This is why I like our President.

Not to mention that she got slammed because the Repubtards are out for Obama blood, and a lot of other politicians would have just let her flounder. Obama's been in her corner the whole time. It's refreshingly nice to see a politician do that, even though it's just good politics.
And once again the conservatives show their complete and total idiocy over this issue.

Fluke speaks about her lesbian friend who nearly died from ovarian cysts because the Christians running the insurance company wouldn't allow her to receive the medicine she required (no, some Wal-Mart brand is not the same as a doctor-prescribed medicine, whether it's heart medicine, cold medicine, or birth control). Rush and the right-wingers, in their infinite wisdom, slander and demonize Sandra herself as a filthy tramp using taxpayer money to eat birth control pills like candy (and showing complete ignorance about how birth control pills work in the process. Protip: they don't work like Viagra, which for some reason is fine and dandy for that insurance to cover) and screw everyone she can. And no matter what, they won't let go of this and keep screeching it over and over like a flock of parrots.

At least it's a good issue to reveal the assholes and morons, as several people like Lindaman have so graciously done.

This was "staged", you gutless freak:

"Leftist Tool"?  Because she won't support you female-hating right-wingers?  Ohhh, I'm sure she's so sorry that she can't support the party of "legitimate rape."

You guys made her famous.  The fact that you're jealous of her being smarter than you guys (by eons) just makes it funnier.

What's sad is that if Limbaugh had called your own mother a slut for several days, you would still defend him.

Keep it up with Fluke, Obama.  Don't ever let the world forget what woman-hating assholes the right-wingers are. 

The Dan Rather Excellence in Journalism Award: Keith Olbermann. The man who loves to portray himself as this generation's Edward R. Murrow found himself fired from yet another job. Just a tip for you, Keith. Maybe at your next job, don't act like such an asshole.

Yep, he was an asshole.  "Leftists" fire their assholes.  Right-wingers give them leadership positions. lol

14:59 and Holding: Piers Morgan. Does anybody really even watch his show aside from conservatives waiting for him to say something stupid? With a White House petition to deport him, Morgan came out and said he would deport himself if America's gun laws weren't changed. Ummm...how can I break this to you, Piers? Oh yeah, you can't deport yourself; the government does that. 

Sheesh, get a clue Lindaman.

And this twit wants to lecture us on gun laws?

No, Alex Jones does.  You know things are bad when Morgan looks like the super-sane one in this interview.

Sign We Are Doomed as a Country: Joe Biden is thinking of running for President in 2016.

This echoes when Lindaman said that mocking Biden was a "full time job" on bynw.com.

These right-wingers are the type of idiots who felt that Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, and Sarah Palin were good ideas for VP.

Biden's a good man. He's smart, direct, has an old political style, he's up front with people, no bullshit, no rambling on, he's affectionate (when it's appropriate), he has the Catholic attributes of piety and grace, he's respectful, honest, trustworthy, and has integrity. He's a Classic Democrat, and a great representative of our country. Nuff said.

Can you imagine Palin or Bush giving a talk like this?  Knowing you, you would mock that speech, too.

Can you even imagine Christie or Jindal making that speech? Joe Biden is an authentic human being who has paid his dues and has the country's best interests at heart.
2016 is gonna be great for Biden. There's really no Republican "superstar" of Obama's caliber, and the "I hates that thar nagger" attitude that has fueled the right wing hate machine since 2008 won't work anymore. All the Republican party has are the same old retreads and a handful of Tea Party buttholes who need to be committed to psychiatric care instead of being given access to the button.

Sign We Are Not Doomed as a Country: Ted Kennedy's son is not running for Congress yet.

Yeah, those Kennedys were never good, were they?

If he's a good man (which he is), what does it matter what his last name is?

If you're basing him on his father, I'll be waiting patiently for your denouncing of George HW Bush, since his father was a Nazi sympathizer.

The Kennedys were exemplary in positively contributing to government.  Just because George W. Bush was so destructive to this country, doesn't disqualify Kennedys.

The Your Tinfoil Hat Is on Too Tight Award: Senate Republicans are seeking to approve Massachusetts Senator John Kerry as Secretary of State so it opens up a Senate seat for ousted Republican Senator Scott Brown to win back.

I thought it was possible that Brown could win it back.  Well, what can ya do?

Interesting that Scott Brown now supports an assault weapons ban, isn't it? lol
