Regarding The Continuing Support For Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Look at it this way: I'm sure that in Berlin in the Spring of 1945, April say, you could find some folks who thought the boss was doing a good job, and that things were going to turn around any day now...

After all, this is Arizona. There are plenty of people still proudly sporting Bush-Cheney, McCain-Palin, and Romney-Ryan bumperstickers.

Common sense and reason don't really enter into it much.

Pope Francis And All That Jazz

Remember way back, when we all had to pretend to be Catholic?

Or the Catholics would kill us?

After they converted us, of course.

Good times...

So, despite what every Republican believes, there's no denying things are better now.

(Ben Carson doesn't know anything about Evolution or astrophysics, by the way.)

Anyhow, ol' Francis is in my top two or three Popes of all time.

Right up there with the Pope who may have been (spoiler alert) a woman.

And Leo X, who according to some sources once said, "How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us and our predecessors."


Seriously, if I ever need advice about love, marriage, life, death, sex, the whole shebang from a celibate wearing a dress, Francis is the guy I'll ask.

Scotty, We Hardly Knew Ye...

Of course, what we did know was appalling...

So Scott Walker, oh, excuse me, Governor Scott "Polling At Less Than 1%" Walker, darling of oligarchs everywhere, union buster extraordinaire, scourge of those awful bastards who pretend to teach our children, the man who allegedly was able to get out of a jam by buying his own personal set of judges, has decided to drop out of the race to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2016.

Sad sad sad.

What is truly amazing about this is that there were people who looked at Scott Walker and thought, "yeah, he's presidential."

First Rick "The Glasses Make Me Look Smarter--Don't They?" Perry and now Scotty W.

Two weasels down...many more to go.

Pity the poor Koch Brothers. Their hand picked candidate couldn't keep his head above water in a nearly dry pond.

Who will they buy now?

In other news, it turns out "Free Mohammed Bobblehead Day" at Mecca wasn't such a good idea.

Go figure.

Remember When...

Remember when the Mexicans shipped all of those American manufacturing jobs to Asia?

And the poor billionaires who owned the companies were powerless against them?

Wasn't that something?

And remember, well before that, when those wily Mexicans sneaked up here, uninvited, and stole all those high paying fruit and vegetable picking, and lawn mowing jobs from good, honest Americans? Right under the noses of the farmers and growers who tried to stop them--but just couldn't?

Remember when the gays started their all out attack on the Middle Class back in the 80's?

Busting unions and driving down wages?

And that legendary conservative icon, Saint Ronald Reagan, attempted to prevent it, but was undermined by Hollywood and the Mainstream Media?

Remember when all those raging socialist bankers helped minority homeowners crash the entire world's economy?

Goddam Marxists!

Remember when the godless liberals started forcing women to have abortions? At gunpoint?

Grabbing them off the streets, and shoving them into the bloody hands of those butchers at Planned Parenthood?

Remember when the Clintons let the Iraqi's crash those planes into the World Trade Center?

If only George W. Bush and Dick Cheney had been in charge!

And finally, remember way back, centuries ago in fact, when all those "illegal immigrants" from Africa stormed our shores, and the good Christian people of the South took them in and gave them housing and jobs?

Boy, they never had it so good! And look at the way they thank us! Ingrates.
It's hard to keep track of all that stuff.

Thank God Fox News keeps me informed.

A Few Bad Apples

Every time a cop shoots an unarmed person--often in the back--or roughs up a bystander, or misbehaves in such an obviously egregious way that even a blind Tea Party Republican can see that it's wrong, we hear the same thing:

"Sure there are a few bad apples, but most of the police are professional and besides they have such a tough job that blah blah blah..."

Some of that might even be true.

But here's the deal:

The police NEVER willingly get rid of any of their "few" bad apples.

On the contrary, they fight like hell to justify the actions of any cop who does anything, no matter how heinous, to anyone.

And so, there's an ever lengthening trail of busted heads and corpses left behind by the seemingly endless supply of "a few bad apples."

The other day, The Rude Pundit compared Dick "The Dark Lord" Cheney to a cockroach.

As far as I'm concerned, that's an insult to cockroaches everywhere.

They ought to sue for defamation.

Of course, that's just my opinion. And enough about me.

Today's topic is "what kind of political party doesn't have the moral character to denounce a cockroach?"

Honestly, Dick Cheney has been wrong about everything during his entire political career.

At this point, he is nothing more or less than a war criminal. A frightening, frothing, clown, dripping with the blood of innocents.

And yet, whatever ridiculous nonsense he continues to spout, with or without his equally disgusting daughter at his side, not one of the current (or past) Republican presidential candidates has the balls to laugh at him. Indeed, many of them continue to respect and admire him and his "opinions".

Fuck him. Fuck his opinions.

I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised. The GOP is, after all, the home of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Mike Huckabee, Steve King, Trent Franks, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, "You Lie!", death panels, "Hell of a job, Brownie", birthers, etc etc etc.

It really isn't a political party anymore.

It's an open air insane asylum, run by its inmates, and funded by a handful of billionaires.

The Gospel According To Mike Huckabee

Verily I say unto ye,

All will be forgiven!

Except the gays and the blacks and certain "loose" women and the Mexicans and the heathen and anybody else I don't cotton to.

For my God is a forgiving God...some of the time...for some of the people.

And because He loves us so--some of us at least--He shall send unto thee a child.

Well, not exactly a child.

More like a thrice married, sometime adulterous, hillbilly woman who has now "seen the light."

And this hillbilly woman, tho she may be deeply flawed in many ways, and seriously lacking in what those godforsaken liberals arrogantly call "intelligence", as if there were anything truly worth knowing besides "The Book", will be unto thee a fountain of knowledge.

And she will interpret for thee what thou should and shouldn't do in regards to mans' laws.

For mans' silly laws are always secondary to His laws.

Even if you've taken an oath on His book to dutifully abide by and administer their laws.

Verily this might be considered an ethical conundrum--if any of us knew what that was.

But obviously we don't, and that in and of itself must be part of His Great Plan.

So I sayeth unto thee, once and for always, Ignorance is truly Bliss.

Therefore, the more Ignorant the more Blissful.

Other Donald Trump Pledges

By now you've probably heard that Donald J. Trump, alleged billionaire, multiple bankruptee, failed casino owner, angry white male, and still leading the Republican Presidential Nominee goat fuck, has pledged his fealty to whoever or whatever ultimately comes out ahead in the goat fucking.

Real team player, that Don.

But what you don't know about are some of the other pledges Trump has made:

Use only Mob approved concrete on his Keep The Mexicans Out Wall.

Get to the bottom of what the hell is going on with his "hair".

Create a low paying job for every non-union Polish temporary visa construction worker he can find.

Continue to spout ridiculous, inaccurate things about immigrants, minorities, women, President Obama, and random strangers--just because he can.

If elected, will restore America's pride and position in the world by showing all those other sad, little, unimportant countries that even with a rich, ego maniacal, blowhard, idiot in charge, we're still better than them.

Ditch wife number 3 if she starts to wrinkle or sag anywhere.

Be yooge, wonderful, super, and the best 24-7 365!

Deport his barber.

An Observation

Isn't it interesting how most, if not all, of the really big money guys turn out to be "boot on their faces" law and order types?

I mean, it's not like the masses ever rise up here in the "Bestest Country There Ever Was Or Ever Could Be."

They're too busy watching various Kardashians cavort for fame and fortune, or the mighty NFL (aka Noted Felons League).

But a little bit of social unrest or the slightest protest, e.g. Occupy Wall Street or Black Lives Matter, and the billionaires get all anxious that maybe the cops aren't being tough enough on the rabble.

Could it be because they know, deep down, that they are guilty of looting the nation's riches?

By rigging the tax codes, buying the Congress, fixing the exchanges, subverting the laws, and all those other "free market" tactics beloved by plutocrats everywhere.

And sooner or later, if the people ever wake up, there won't be enough cops to protect them...
