a new low for Bachmann... WOW

she should stick to what she knows... marrying closeted gay men

whoops iPhone cut me off. Meant to say props to McCain!

They are doing the same asinine things here in TN. I am starting to see what the 50's and 60's were like here in the south. Instead of blacks, though, it's muslims.

If anyone wants to know why I am not a conservative/teabagger/repub., well here you go. The punchline: Governor Bill Haslam (of Pilot Oil) is a republican.

Bachman is a real POS.

snyder 07-20-2012 8:10 AM

wait, it's not okay for her to make accusations on wiener's wife, but it is okay to accuse her of being married to a closet gay? hmm. Or to say this asinine behavior is why one is a liberal, and immediately call folks on the other side "teabaggers". hmm. you guys are morally superior, huh? Jeremy, by your logic you should be politically agnostic not liberal because i'm sure there is a direct 1:1 ratio of the goofy things "repubs" say to what liberals say that is equally goofy.

you can call her an idiot or POS, but don't pretend to be any better.

^LOL @ defending Bachmann. I guess now Obama going to have to stand in front of Congress and admonish Wes because we all know that Wes has a political platform that panders to mental midgets and is a figure in the public eye. Wes, what kind of fool are you thinking you could be President?

snyder 07-20-2012 8:36 AM

^lol at thinking i'm defending Bachmann.

shawndoggy 07-20-2012 8:43 AM

I don't think it would be unfair to call her a McCarthy-ist fear monger. Whether that also makes her an idiot is in the eye of the beholder.

Umm, not a question of accusation my friend. The issue is his (and her) unbelievable hypocrisy.

snyder 07-20-2012 8:49 AM

I've largely stayed out of the political threads on here for quite some time. More often than not, i type up a reply and then delete it before sending it because the opinions/replies on these threads has become so predictable it's not even fun anymore. no one on here is going to convince anyone else to see their point of view. Also as i noted in another thread, you've gotten way too quick to call someone stupid, idiot, mental midget etc.. you're becoming quite brave behind your keyboard. i'd really love to see you in a discussion in person w/someone with whom you disagree politically. and I sure as hell hope you'd be more civil.
but it's getting old john. you should calm your tired self down.

snyder 07-20-2012 8:56 AM

right wes. an embedded clip from a comedy show within the Lawrence O'Donnell show from politicalarticles.net Playlist: Republican Homophobia. Let's spend the day playing the distraction game. lets debate whether or not bachmann's husband is gay. let's get into the minutia of that. you have certainly read the playbook from your sides game plan. lol.

pesos 07-20-2012 9:09 AM

There's no debate son... And if you can't laugh at the absurdity that is the Bachmann's then I am concerned for your sense of humor!

The sad part is that this woman is an elected rep. Most politicians (r or d) are buffoons, but she takes the cake.

If you want to call me a Marixist Blankity Blank to my face, I'll be happy to call you a mental midget. However, I called Bachmann's constituents mental midgets. The only explanation I can think of for you believing that was directed at you is well... You know.

I'd be more civil because when you debate in public it's much harder to respond to a real discussion with some totally irrelevant response, which is what people like to do online.

It took you two posts to respond to my one, and I'm the one to calm down?

John as worked up as you have been getting lately I think we should all pitch in and get you "Life Alert."

"Jeremy, by your logic you should be politically agnostic not liberal because i'm sure there is a direct 1:1 ratio of the goofy things "repubs" say to what liberals say that is equally goofy."

Whoever said I was a liberal? But the point of me posting that link, you have the teabaggers who central message is, "Get government out of our lives", advocating the government getting into people's lives. No wonder it is a lifeless movement.

I don't know about taking the cake... Hank Johnson U.S. Representative for Georgia's 4th congressional district, serving since 2007, takes the cake.. Guam could tip over...:eek:

Awesome. Send it on down. I hear they double as a church key. Which is great because I don't drink beer with twist tops.

Johnson sounds like he's on drugs. He later said "The subtle humor of this obviously metaphorical reference to a ship capsizing illustrated my concern about the impact of the planned military buildup on this small tropical island,"

snyder 07-20-2012 12:51 PM

Here's your worst of the worst...

A true embarrassment to Houston.

fly135 07-20-2012 1:09 PM

OK, now we've established that there are idiots in both parties.

snyder 07-20-2012 1:45 PM

then i declare "Mission Accomplished".
LOL. (yes, i'm aware of the irony in that statement. it was intentional)

that really was the intent of my whole contribution to this thread. we ALL hypocritically point out the hypocrisy of "the other side" routinely on this board. I couldn't care less about bachmann's husband. or really what she said about weiner's wife.

(BTW, i don't think i ever called you a Marxist blankety blank. and did not take the mental midget comment as directed at me)

You claimed I called someone a mental midget.:confused:

i think, you thought, I thought, that you had. but i didn't think so.

fly135 07-20-2012 2:25 PM

Well then.... I can absolutely tell you... Yes, I would call Bachmann's constituents Mental Midgets to your face.

wake77 07-20-2012 5:08 PM

"Yes, I would call Bachmann's constituents Mental Midgets to your face."

That is an insult to midgets.
