Ugggghhhh…

You might have already seen this vid over at CC’s, but it was so truly horrifying that I had to post it here.  It’s Sarah Palin supporters explaining why they think she should be president, and it’s so bad that it took was less than :35 seconds before I fell to the floor screaming “Holy FUCK!  The burning fucking stupid!!!”.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I wonder how people can be this stupid and remember to breathe in and breathe out.

    I managed about 40 seconds of this this morning at CC’s. When I described it to my sweetie as a herd of ‘deer caught in the headlights’, he said, ‘speaking of deer‘.

    They tasered Bambi’s mother!

    Those Palin fans sure need a jolt of something.

  2. 3 JJ Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 4:17 pm

    Janus – Very smart. It’s infuriating how stupid these people are.

  3. 4 JJ Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    fern hill – Only 40 seconds? I guess you turned it off after that cretin that said “if the republicans don’t back Palin it doesn’t matter because she’s gonna git the presidency anyway” 😆 😯

    … oh fuck, the burning, melting, oozing fucking stupid…

  4. 5 burpster Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    Typical teabaggers. It’s really funny watching the low-info crowd being interviewed. They don’t seem to know much about her, other than the fact they love her.

  5. 6 Torontonian Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    Did you notice how frequently that the phrase, “I don’t know” was used.

    Totally clueless, those people. And they’re able to vote?

    Too bad that age is the arbiter for the vote.

    If maturity entered into the voting eligibility, we wouldn’t have the problems we do now.

  6. 7 JJ Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    burpster – They hardly know anything about her. They know she’s a fetus fetishist, and that’s enough for some of them. And beyond that, all they know about her is this cartoonish image that they’ve got in their own minds, that has nothing to do with reality. Hilarious!

  7. 8 JJ Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Torontonian

    Did you notice how frequently that the phrase, “I don’t know” was used.

    Oh yeah, the guy asks them what policies of Palin’s they like and almost all of them had nothing to say but — “Duhhh, I don’t know.” Good grief, that’s stupid squared.

    It’s funny they can be so fervent about someone they know so little about — they keep talking about “less spending”, but Palin supported the worst of all gratuitous spending policies, those fucking bailouts. They don’t know — they’re a cult, worshipping a cartoon character.

    “Consider how dumb the average American is. Now, consider that 50% of the population is dumber than that.” – George Carlin
    Sarah Palin is the poster girl for the dumber 50%. All anyone has to do is expose her sufficiently, and then teach the dumber 50% how to use the voting machines. Done deal. Caribou Barbie is large and in charge.

    What is really stupid to the point of mind boggling to me is after the GOP blamed sawah for losing the presidency to the point they came and collected her clothes; why on earth would they back her as president??

    It may just be an urban legend, but I’ve heard that the Secret Service designation for Dubya was “Rain Man.” What do think it might be for Sawah? “Ghost Writer?” Things that make you go, “hmmmm…”

    Why are they complaining about Sarah? they have their Saul Alinsky in the white house now and have control of congress. They run the public school systems in America, they have Hollywood and Porn America on their side. Obama is still doing the apology tour, bowing to other leaders, blaming Bush.

    Jasper – Sorry but a spliced-together audio isn’t even in the same ballpark as asking Palin groupies *on video* at a specific Palin event, what it is they like about her policies, and having so many of them come up stupid.

    As an aside, it wouldn’t be that hard for someone who doesn’t follow politics closely to confuse McCain’s policies with Obama’s — they are not all that far apart on several issues.

    Or did I just imagine all those conservatives bitching about McCain being too liberal?

  24. 25 JJ Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    CTZen – Although I kid about it a lot, because she certainly comes across as a dummie sometimes, I really don’t think Sarah Palin is stupid. She’s formulated an image, a role that appeals to a lot of people who are catastrophically dense.

    Somewhere on this blog I’ve got a video of her giving a speech from way before she got involved with the presidential race, maybe when she first became governor of Alaska, and she sounded surprisingly articulate and intelligent.

    No, she’s not an intellectual powerhouse, or she wouldn’t have blown all those interviews during the campaign, and she’s not presidential material by any stretch of the imagination. But I don’t think she’s the rube that she’s made out to be, either. Her ‘base’ is extremely dumb though, and she plays them like a fiddle.

  25. 26 JJ Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at 4:00 pm

    CK

    why on earth would they back her as president??

    The GOP needed to motivate the religious right base, which is why they selected Palin. She motivated the base alright, but by motivating the base they drove away moderates, who were sick & tired of the religious nuts hijacking the party.

    Moderate conservatives put up with the religious right’s influence for a long time because they felt it was still better to vote Republican due to other policies (ie. foreign).

    But as the GOP devolved into a party of theocratic nutbars, moderates took a hike in droves. The Terri Schiavo travesty was probably the beginning of the end, but Palin was the last straw for many. (This phenomenon is even reflected in the blogosphere, John Cole and Charles Johnson being the two most notable examples of conservatives who leaped off the crazy train before it went right off the rails.)

    Reality,
    I’m talking about mainstream pornograhy.

    “Jasper, so you’re against free speech? And you know, all the porn stars that I’ve ever heard of running or considering running for office have been Republicans. Tee hee!”

    Maybe because they are reformed porn stars…Do you think when the founders wrote the constitution (1st amendment)they had hard-core pornograhy in mind? It’s very addictive and damaging to society Dr. Prole, many studies have been done.

    “Not to mention, Jasper that Red States <3's Them Some Pron!"

  39. 40 Dr. Prole Thursday, November 26, 2009 at 8:34 am

    The founders and framers didn’t have a lot of things in mind, Jasper. Like telephones. Or computers. Or evil multinational corporations that use overseas child and slave labor and force their “employees” into prostitution and to have abortions, all while claiming to be the “perfect petri dish” of free market capitalism (see Delay, Tom and the northern Mariana Islands – one of your guys and his sickening pet project). What exactly is your point?

    Reformed porn stars? You need to do a google search, my friend. The women I am talking about are not exactly what I’d call “reformed”, as I’m sure what you mean is actually “repentant”. Just search “porn star Republican”. And while you’re at it, look into Newt Gingrich giving a porn company “Entrepeneur of the Year” award. Mistakenly? LOL. Right. It wasn’t a mistake until the internet found out.

    Actually I do agree with you about pornography being addictive and damaging to society (just ask Carrie Prejean, pornographer). But so are Coca Cola and refined carbohydrates. Again, your point? You keep saying all pornographers are liberal Democrats and that’s just a bunch of bullshit. See for yourself.

You made it up and you’re lying. And you’re such a fuckwitted cowardly little piece of shit that you can’t even admit it. Since you can’t even confess your sins, asshole, we can only conclude that even you don’t believe the shit you spew about sin.

    As for when we leave this earth, I don’t happen to buy into your fantasy. You may think you have proof, but you don’t. Your body is going to rot in a grave like everyone else’s and your soul? It doesn’t exist. No such thing. There’s consciousness, but animals have that too, and you folks insist animals don’t have souls.

    If we do, they do. They don’t. And neither do we. We’re both going to end up in exactly the same place, but don’t worry. You’ll never find out what a complete waste your life really was.

    Because pornography thrives on Republican “values” — keep all the fun stuff hidden from view and pretend to hate it while you’re really stashing it away and keeping it all for yourself in the hopes that no one else will find out about it.

  49. 50 deBeauxOs Thursday, November 26, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    Pornography thrives when censorship, in the form of the hypocritical Republican “family values”, drives erotic expression (between consenting adults) underground.

    Study the history of Germany in the 20th century, Jasper. You will observe some disturbing similarities between the Nazi party and fundamentalist Republicans.

  52. 53 Janus Friday, November 27, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    “that doesn’t make any sense. Hugh Hefner and Larry Flynt are big Democrat donors.”

    It makes perfect sense. Hef and Larry woulda starved to death by now if it wasn’t for Republican “values” that make everything dirty, and therefore sexually stimulating and therefore desirable.

    “Pornograhers are mostly Athiests, wiccans, witches, etc”

    Well, as usual , you’ve got all the capitals — as well as all the emphasis — in the wrong places.

    How would atheists benefit from pornography? Or why do you think Wiccans and other Witches would gain from what is completely natural, and therefore automatically part of their world?

    It’s only the fear-mongers who benefit from pornography, kid. They try to make you afraid of your own body and its natural functions and then they tell you all the twisted ways you can make it function, and then they try to tell you not to look at it while they squirrel away copies for their own uses. Then, when they get caught out, they squeal that the devil made them do it, but it’s alright now ’cause they’re sorry and they’ll never do it again and God forgives them so you have to do the same and now you have to forget about it because that’s what God wants you to do…

    Good morrow, all!
    “The purpose of pornography is to stimulate sexual arousal, which is unnecessary for the young, inconvenient for the middle-aged and impossible for the old.” – Malcolm Muggeridge.
    It was the prohibition of alcohol that made Al Capone his fortune. It is the prohibition of pornography, and other related sexual concepts, that makes fortunes for pornographers. It is the prohibition of recreational drugs that make fortunes for drug lords and, incidentally, the DEA.
    Take away that prohibition, and you take away those fortunes.
    Legalize it, regulate it, tax it. The mortality and morbidity associated with alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs is far higher than that associated with recreational drugs.
    As for pornography, it is already so commonplace, it loses its forbidden cachet. It becomes boring. We would rather watch “Reality TV” or “UFC”.
    Jasper: You must REALLY, REALLY like porn, you mention it so often. I can recommend a few free sites if you like. Maybe if you get off a little more often, you’ll mellow out.

    CTZen, was that quote before or after Muggeridge became a Roman Catholic pontificating asshole?

    I disagree that it’s prohibition that makes fortunes for the purveyors of these products. It’s their broad appeal that does it. Prohibition makes profits for criminals, but legalization makes even greater profits for legitimate business.

  58. 60 Cornelius T.Zen Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    Good morrow, all!
    RB: Prohibition actually restricts the pricing flexibility of prohibited commodities and allows the purveyors to charge whatever the (underground) market will bear. Ergo, fortunes are made by those willing to break the law.
    All the broad appeal does is make the commodities desirable. It is the prohibition that makes the commodities “scarce,” and therefore, more highly profitable.
    It is perceived scarcity that drives up the price of ANY commodity, whether it be recreational pharmaceuticals, real estate or the latest tech craze. The difference between a wide-open free market price and the price demanded due to “scarcity” is what I call “the idiot tax.”
    Remember when the i-Phone first came out. It was scarce and it was costly, and about two months later, it was common, and cheap. Same phone, but patient people payed a lot less “idiot tax”. The lessons of history, right?
    Legalize it. Regulate it. Tax it. Fuhgeddaboudit.
    I remain, as ever…CTZen

  59. 61 Reality Bites Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    I agree that scarcity drives up the price, but I disagree that it actually drives up the profit. More to be made by by selling to a mass audience at a lower price.

    Pornography isn’t massively profitable because of a prohibition that ended a generation ago. It’s masssively profitable lots of because people like it.

  60. 62 JJ Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    “I agree that scarcity drives up the price, but I disagree that it actually drives up the profit. More to be made by by selling to a mass audience at a lower price.”

    Think about it – offer just a few units at an outrageous price, and let those sales fester for a little while. Let the blogs and twits rack up all this extra free advertising from the ‘iPhone People’, the ones who have it and go on claiming that it’s the greatest thing since we learned how to walk upright.

    The initial trickle of release was just to whet the appetites of the masses, make them want it all the more.

    Then, the floodgates open, and even people who were just so-so about the product at the first release will have been infected by the disease and rush out to get one.

    I fucking hate cell phones. Never owned one, never will.

    CTZ and RB…

    You’re both forgetting something really, really important: the human factor.

    As unpredictable as it is, there are certain generalities that are mainly true about humans. And one of those generalities is that if you forbid something, you make it instantly necessary for most people to want/have it.

    Charlie Eppes would be wagging his finger at both of you… 😉


Wait. What?
