This is one opportunity I could not resist. Of course, most of these asshats aren’t so anonymous, but they really belong in support group all together. Being an asshat is like suffering through any other psychological affliction. They almost can’t help themselves. Revel in this page. It will be updated frequently. And please, if you have any suggestions for anyone else who may belong here, feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Thanks.
Marco Rubio (R-FL)
Marco Rubio is the latest in a long line of GOP snake oil salesmen. This guy is so full of shit that his pores spontaneously ooze bullshit. He has already been anointed by Time magazine as the GOP’s savior, and he was chosen to give the rebuttal to Barack Obama’s 2013 State of the Union address. In an attempt to appeal to the Hispanic voters of America, Rubio gave his rebuttal speech in both English and Spanish. Of course, this condescending attempt at appealing to minority voters is tempered by the fact that he’s already been caught embellishing (read: lying about) the story of his parents’ flight from Cuba.
Rubio focused on the same old well-worn GOP talking points during his speech. You know what I mean by that: The same crap that was flowing out of Mitt Romney’s mouth a few months ago. You’d think the GOP would get the message. When it came time to address climate change, Rubio’s comment was, “Our government can’t control the weather.” Seems he has a little problem distinguishing between climate change and meteorology, as well as cause and effect.
If this is the savior. Wow.
Mitt Romney (GOP Candidate for President)
There are so many reasons why Mitt Romney is here. First and foremost, he’s a pathological liar. He lies about every single issue: Women, LGBT civil rights, ObamaCare, his record as governor of Massachusetts — you name it. He’s a human who is at the larval stage. When he isn’t lying, he’s evasive. He still refuses to answer the question about whether or not he’ll trash Obama’s immigration plan. He keeps accounts in the Cayman Islands and tells the general public they are “investments.” Most recently, it was revealed that he took a tax deduction for his wife’s dressage horses that exceeds the median average income of most Americans.
He’s the quintessential candidate of the 1% who intends to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, supports a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, and will trash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. First question: Can you name a good reason for sending him to the White House? Second question: How do you spell Asshat?
Scott Brown (R-MA)
An asshat from my own state, Scott Brown simply can’t run on the issues because he knows he won’t get a second term in Massachusetts if he does. He likes to paint himself as an “independent” Republican, but he supports Paul Ryan’s Draconian budget plan and he co-sponsored the Blunt Amendment, effectively putting himself squarely on the front lines in the War on Women. Instead of campaigning on the issues, he’s now spending his re-election time focusing on whether or not Elizabeth Warren, his Democratic challenger for the late Ted Kennedy’s seat, is 1/32nd Cherokee as she has said. Is this really important, Scott? Well, I guess it is if you can’t figure out how to convince the voters that you’re a better choice. Oh, yeah, he’s one of us. Just a regular guy…who has three more houses than Millionaire Mitt (that would make a total of 6 homes). One of us.
Allen West (R-FL)
Channeling Joe McCarthy, Tea Party favorite Florida Rep. Allen West this week called the members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus “Communists.” This makes him an asshat. According to West, these Democrats “oppose free markets and individual economic freedom.” According to West, he’s “fighting for the heart and soul of our nation.” Praise be Jesus. Well, I’m hearin’ you Allen. What I hear in those little buzz words like “free markets” and “individual economic freedom” is the rally cry of the 1%. I hear the heart and soul of the Americans for Prosperity. I hear the Tea Party loud and clear.
If Allen West was fighting for the “heart and soul” of America, he’d be protecting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. That’s what America’s all about. Somehow, this has been lost in the fervor of the times. Today, American greed reigns supreme.
In fact, I’ll take it one step further. When I hear asshats like Allen West talk, I hear fascism loud and clear. So, Representative West, I think the extreme right-wing in America is nothing more than a conglomerate of fascists. That would include you.
Rush Limbaugh (Mental Defective Talk Show Host)
OMG. WTF took me so long to put this asshat on the page? Maybe it’s because there are so many asshats and so little time. Fat Boy has been clogging up the airwaves with his own brand of hatred for years, but his latest stunt takes the cake (as my mother would say). When Sandra Fluke was finally allowed to speak for women on contraception, Mr. Viagra went on one of his usual hateful rampages, calling her a slut. Then, he suggested that since we want him to pay for women to have sex, they should upload videos for his personal viewing pleasure. He attacked Sandra Fluke not once but — at last count — 70 times over several days. This guy is nothing short of disgusting on every level possible. He’s offensive. Stupid. Ignorant. Intellectually and factually challenged. Misogynistic. Rude. Am I missing anything here?
More than 147 advertisers have pulled their support for Limbaugh, but I say it’s time he lost his job. I salute Media Matters for America for their efforts. And don’t give me the bullshit about First Amendment rights. There’s a difference between freedom of speech and slander.
Chris Christie (Governor, New Jersey)
Both Rick Santorum and Chris Christie are sucking up all the air in the room these days. Unfortunately, Rick Santorum is already on this list. He has also been my Fuckwit of the Week three times now. So, tonight Chris Christie makes the list. What can we say about this minimally intelligent member of the GOP? Well, since I do not have unlimited space here, let’s go with his vetoing of New Jersey’s gay marriage bill, which would have made it the eighth state to legalize same-sex marriage. In spite of the state Senate’s bipartisan approval (24-16) followed by the state Assembly passage with a vote of 42-33, Christie vetoed it the next day saying it was the “right thing to do” because he firmly believes it should be opened up to a state-wide vote. Really? Who made fat boy the judge and jury on LGBT civil rights? Since when do citizens get to vote on who is and isn’t allowed their Constitutional rights? (Of course, Christie has also stated that African-American civil rights should have been voted upon.) No doubt Christie thinks planting his shoes on the wrong side of history will secure him a presidential nomination come 2016, but I’m pretty sure that state-sanctioned discrimination will not work in his favor.
You can read the fine print on Cristie’s actual veto here on The New Civil Rights Movement (one of my all-time favorite sites), complete with his idiotic comments.
Cindy Jacobs (Crackpot Prophet)
It’s no coincidence that I put Cindy Jacobs here. I decided to add her as the newest Asshat since my newest post is about her. She is the Clown Princess of Right-Wing Crackpots, there’s no doubt about that. According to her, she’s got a direct line to The Big Guy in the Sky. She’s cast out numerous demons: Perversion, Homosexuality, Bisexuality to name a few. According to her, she’s prevented two African coups. Cindy also reversed a hysterectomy for a woman in California. Remarkable woman. According to Cindy, those 5,000 dead-as-door nail birds that feel from the sky in Arkansas was the result of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Okey Dokey, Cindy. Through her General International Ministries, Cindy and her husband, Mike, work to achieve “societal transformation through intercession and the prophetic.” Yeah, okay. Please check out my VodPod videos for some real entertainment. She’s scary and fun at the same time. And that’s not an easy combination to achieve.
Michele Bachmann (R-MN)
Oh, yes, she’s our very first Asshat Anonymous. Trust me, she’s not entirely stupid. She’s nuts. Some of the most outrageous things she’s said include:
• Abolishing the minimum wage would create jobs
• Claimed that The Lion King is gay propaganda
• Asserted that Terri Schiavo was “healthy”
Most recently, she called for a tax increase on the wealthy…by mistake. And if you’ve followed Michele’s run for the highest office in the land, you know this could only have been a mistake. If it’s at all possible (and I know this is a stretch, folks), she makes Sarah Palin almost look sane. In fact, I now proudly wear my “Michele Bachman. Because Sarah Palin isn’t crazy enough” shirt as much as possible.
What would America look like under her rule? I’m pretty sure LGBT Americans would all be in camps where her husband (the biggest closet queen I’ve seen in a while) would help them pray the gay away. Women would be set back decades, being the dutiful wives and mothers that they should be. (Of course, she would be exempt because she was called by God to run for public office. That’s the way Dominionists think.) And we’d pretty much replace the U.S. Constitution with the freakin’ Bible.
But let’s not forget that, while she may be entertaining, she’s extremely dangerous. Her positions come from twisted ideology that have no basis in government. You’ve got to wonder how she got where she is, and it’s imperative that we keep this whack job from going any further than the state of Minnesota.
Herman Cain, Pizza Man
I was tempted to put Sarah Palin in right now after Michele Bachmann, but Herman Cain seems more fitting at this juncture. This guy is surging in the polls on the GOP side and I haven’t figured it out yet. (On the other hand, I have yet to figure out the GOP.) Just who is Herman Cain and what does he stand for? He’s the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. He’s also a radio talk show host. What would a Herman Cain administration look like?
Well, he supported TARP, saying that “Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem.” Yeah. Right. Seen any profits yet, folks? He thinks the current Social Security system is a “scam,” and wants to reform the current system through “free market solutions.” Oh, yes, the infamous GOP free market credo. Has that worked for anyone other than the top 1% income earners any time in the past?
He doesn’t believe in welfare programs, saying they make people more dependent. He is pro-life and is against abortion in all cases (including rape and incest). He believes that life begins at conception, and is in support of defunding Planned Parenthood. Cain is an opponent of same-sex marriage, supports DOMA and, if elected, would work to bring back Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
His 9-9-9 plan would replace all current taxes, including the payroll, capital gains and estate taxes. They would be replaced with a 9% business transaction tax, a 9% personal income tax rate, and a 9% federal sales tax. An analysis of the ins-and-outs of the Cain plan by the Tax Policy Center shows that Mr. Godfather’s signature plan would actually raise taxes for most households, but actually cut them for those with the highest incomes. Are we surprised? You can find a copy of the plan, straight from the demon’s mouth, here on my Scribd site.
Mr. Cain recently asserted that being gay is a choice. It’s not like being born black. According to Cain, you can’t wash the black away but, apparently, you can stop being gay at any time. Uh huh.
Conclusion? He’s an Asshat.
Here’s another guy who just can’t seem to STFU, and nothing that comes out of his evil little mouth is good. I could have chosen a more recent photo, but this one just fits so well. Pat Buchanan has spent years spewing his white supremacist, homophobic, anti-feminist, bigoted vomit and passing it off as legitimate mainstream political commentary. What’s worse is that MSNBC is giving this guy a soap box (and a hefty pay check) from which to spread his poison. Here are some of Pat’s words of wisdom:
“White America is an endangered species. By 2020, whites over 65 will out-number those 17 and under. Deaths will exceed births. The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear.”
“AIDS is nature’s retribution for violating the laws of nature.”
“The real liberators of American women were not the feminist noise-makers, they were the automobile, the supermarket, the shopping center, the dishwasher, the washer-dryer, the freezer.”
“America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known … no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream.”
In a memo to President Richard Nixon, Buchanan stated that ”integration of blacks and whites — but, even more so, poor and well-to-do — is less likely to result in accommodation than it is in perpetual friction, as the incapable are placed consciously by government side by side with the capable.”
Now, Pat Buchanan has taken it one step further. This weekend he appeared on a white supremacist radio show to promote his new book, Suicide of A Superpower, in which he asserts that increasing racial diversity is a threat to this country and the “End of White America.”
This is just one of the crazy-ass comments coming out of this loser’s mouth. If MSNBC wants to be seen as a serious outlet for news and political commentary, it must fire Pat Buchanan immediately. His positions have no basis in fact and, while he’s entitled to his opinion, he has no business spewing racist and bigoted bullshit to millions of people every day.
The people at Color of Change have put together a petition demanding that MSNBC fire Pat Buchanan. Here’s the link so that you can sign it and, please, pass it along.
What can we say about this schmuck? Plenty. His state has one of the worst education records in the nation, ranking 36th in high school graduation rates (3.8 million Texans do not have a high school diploma). Texans rank 49th in verbal SAT scores, 47th in literacy, and 46th in average math SAT scores. In spite of having the worst uninsured rate in the country, this asshat claims that Texas has “the best health care in the country.” Texas also boasts one of the worst poverty rates, with one in four Texas children living below the poverty line. In January, Perry proposed “emergency legislation” that would require that a woman have a sonogram at least 24 hours prior to an abortion procedure. Prior to the procedure, a woman is required to view an image of the fetus and listen to the sound of its heartbeat. As an “emergency” piece of legislation, it was rushed through the Texas legislature and signed in May 2011. The state of Texas is the biggest polluter in the nation, leading the country and carbon dioxide emissions.
Let’s add some more to the pile of feces. He is one of the darlings of the Christian right. A few days prior to announcing his run for the presidency, he led 30,000 rabid Christian fundamentalists in a day of prayer and fasting. Among those in attendance were Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, who read from the Bible. He introduced himself as a governor, even though his office insisted he was off for the day and attending as a private citizen. John Hagee, pastor of San Antonio’s Cornerstone Church, who once claimed that Hitler was sent by God to force Jews “to come back to the land of Israel” also attended.
I’ve got other words for this clown, but since this page is titled Asshats Anonymous, we’ll simply go with: Asshat.
“The battle we’re engaged in right now is same sex marriage, ultimately that is the very foundation of our country, the family, what the family structure is going to look like. I’ll die on that hill.”
The father of seven (yes, seven) and presidential candidate also doesn’t believe in birth control (obviously), and is anti-abortion across the board, even if the woman’s life is in danger or her pregnancy is the result of violence. Here’s another unbelievable theory that Santorum has advanced: The lack of funds in our Social Security system is the result of a declining population rate due to abortions. This is genius material, isn’t it? How about this, Rick. The declining population rate may be due to the fact that people just can’t afford SEVEN FREAKIN’ CHILDREN. I wonder if Rick is done spawning yet. Perhaps he’s single handedly trying to rescue the Social Security system!
Rick wants to make the Bush tax cuts permanent because he believes that the top earners create jobs. No. Actually, Rick, the top earners create wealth for themselves at the expense of the workers. And he wants to cut Medicare and Medicaid to reduce the deficit. How about killing the Bush tax cuts to reduce the deficit? If Rick had an ounce of gray matter in his tiny little cranium, he’d understand that the combination of the Bush tax cuts and the myriad of wars we’re fighting around the globe actually created the deficit. Not Social Security. Or Medicare. Or Medicaid.
Rick Santorum, yet another Asshat for President.
Michigan Senate Rethuglicans*
I’ve been pretty tongue-in-cheek about additions to this page, but not this time. The humor will have to wait another day. Today, the Michigan Senate Republicans crossed the line in my book. They have passed a bullying bill but, in a twist, they changed the wording so that a student can be bullied by anyone (including parents, teachers, fellow students, school employees, and volunteers) so long as the perpetrator can give a religious or moral reason for his or her actions. You know what, there is something morally wrong with this country. There is something extremely wrong when a bill of this nature can be passed, a bill which basically gives the thumbs up to hate crimes in the name of God.
The Michigan Senate GOP is a sorry lot, and a piss poor excuse for public servants. And I’m a little tired of the self-righteous Christian extremism that permeates this nation. Christians presume to know just exactly what God (or whomever their Supreme Allied Commander is) wants and how He would act, but I seriously doubt that God would be in favor of such a law. The Christians in this country spend more time talking about how hateful fundamentalist Islam is, but they really should take a look at themselves in the mirror.
Perhaps the most disgusting and disgraceful part of SB137, which passed 26-11 (with no Democratic votes), is that it is named after Matt Eppling, who committed suicide in 2002 as a result of anti-gay bullying. It has taken nine years to get a bullying bill passed for Matt, and this is the best these losers could do? They belong in the HALL OF SHAME.
Please go here and read the full article on The New Civil Rights Movement.
*My spell check is working. This is not a typo.
We’ve got a live one here, and it’s none other than Bryan Fischer, the loud-mouth bigot and spokesman for the American Family Association. For those of you who are not familiar with AFA, the rabidly anti-gay organization was recently classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. On his radio show, Fischer called for the re-criminalization of homosexuality in every state:
“I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, until everyone in the United States agrees with me. America must choose between homosexuality and religious liberty, because we cannot have both. America must choose between homosexuality and freedom of speech, because we cannot have both. America must choose between homosexuality and freedom, because we cannot have both.”
Actually, Bryan, we can have both on every single count. America is not a theocracy yet, although with asshats like you running your mouths off and spreading hatred in the name of God, we’re headed in that direction.
You can read a copy of the SPLC report on the American Family Association, The Propagandists, right here on my Scribd site.
Who would ever have thought that Sarah Palin would occupy the eighth spot on this list? The only reason she’s down so low is that there are just so damned many asshats out there who are immediately more relevant since she’s dropped out of the 2012 presidential race. I’m using the photo of Palin’s new book here, although there are so many I could use that are funny. However, the title of her book is the utter bullshit that got her on the McCain ticket in 2008. The reality is that if you’re not a member of the 1%, then this God, country and family shit is why you vote GOP. There can be no other reason. Sarah Palin is a dimwit who believes in abstinence-only sex education, and the proof is in the fact that her daughter was pregnant by a neanderthal during the 2008 election campaign. She’s a media hound who managed to then parade Bristol and her baby-daddy on stage, holding her up as a model for the pro-lifers, then took the media to task when they went after Bristol. You can’t have it both ways, Sarah. She believes in creationism, shooting wildlife from airplanes, that the Iraq war is “a task that is from God.” Palin’s position is that we should join Israel in a pre-emptive strike on Iran. She opposes abortion even if the women are victims of rape, is a climate change denier, and attends a church that believes you can cure Jews and homosexuals. In most developed nations, these positions would be seen as “negatives,” but not here! Nope. These absurd positions make her the darling of the small-minded Americans, and there seem to be plenty of those out there.
Let’s make this a family affair, shall we? Just when you thought that Bristol might exhibit some independence from her dimwit mother, she proves you wrong. Witness Bristol’s book: “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.” There she is on the front cover holding her little bundle of out-of-wedlock joy. Bristol has learned all about exploitation from the master of the craft: Sarah Palin. (Okay, I admit that I gave this little literary gem a speed read on the web because I absolutely refuse to purchase it and give the Palin clan any royalties.)
The book amounts to a juicy little tell-all about lying to her mother about where she was sleeping, and her brush with wine coolers that allowed Levi Johnston to “steal her virginity.” When she told Levi about her pregnancy, his only comment was “Better be a fucking boy.” Intelligence abounds. Give me a break, Bristol. You’re what, pushing eighteen???? How is your experience so much different from any other teens’? What possible ‘message’ is here? The only message is that she kept her baby instead of having an abortion or giving it up for adoption. Poor thing. If she had given little Tripp up for adoption, he might have a chance at a normal life but that’s pretty much shot to shit now. Grandma is a whack job, grandpa is a brainless moron, and his mother and father are losers. The only other accomplishment that Bristol can lay claim to besides getting knocked up is her stint on Dancing With the Stars. I know! Let’s nominate her for vice president on the GOP ticket! She’s got all the qualifications!
Bob Vander Plaats
Many of you probably haven’t heard of Bob Vander Plaats, so it’s my duty to fill you in. Trust me. There’s no shortage of Christian right-wing nutbags out there, and he’s one of the nuttiest. After failing three times as a candidate for Iowa statehood, Bob has recreated himself as a conservative Christian go-to guy. (Why do all these guys look like Nazis?) Vander Plaats is the head of The Family Leader, a Christian organization that encourages candidates to consider their Christian views in political decisions. The GOP debate on November 19 in Iowa (billed as the Thanksgiving Family Forum) was sponsored by Vander Plaats, and it focused on the role of government and religion in society. More than 3,000 enthralled right-wing crazies and 160 media outlets were in attendance. Oh, but that’s not Bob’s only claim to fame. Earlier this year, he asked the GOP candidates to sign his 14-point pledge on marriage. This little gem includes pledges like:
• Personal fidelity to my spouse
• Steadfast embrace of a federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which protects the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman in all of the United States.
• Recognition that robust childbearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security.
These are just the tip of the iceberg. The entire pledge can be read on my Scribd site here. It should be noted that Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum were the first to sign.
It’s like old home week. Karl Rove has made the page. The clandestine operative of the Evil Empire (Bush regime) has a new purpose. On November 15, Rove appeared at Johns Hopkins University as part of its annual Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium and was greeted by Occupy protesters. The protesters called him the architect of the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan (fact), and he took it personally. His response? “Who gave you the right to occupy America?” Apparently, Karl needs a little history lesson. How about this, Karl? Our founding fathers gave us the right to occupy America. It’s called the Bill of Rights, Karl, which comprise the first ten amendments to the Constitution. In fact, Karl, It’s the First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That’s it in a nutshell, Karl, you ignorant, fuckwit-asshat. How about that? This clown has done nothing constructive in his political life. His sole reason for being is to discredit, lie and create havoc. He is already hard at work trying to discredit Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. And I’m thinking he might not want to mess with her. Rove is anything but a patriotic American. In fact, his participation in the outing of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame (along with Dickwad Cheney) is tantamount to treason.
For those of you who do not know scum-bucket Pamela Geller, she’s virulently anti-Muslim and as crazy as a loon (although I think I’m insulting loons on this one). I thought she was on the edge when she claimed that Barack Obama is the “love child” of Malcolm X, but her 2011 Thanksgiving turkey plot puts her right over the edge. Geller called for a boycott of Butterball turkeys, insisting that they are “stealth halal” turkeys prepared in accordance with Muslim dietary laws. (Yes. You are reading correctly, folks.) As the co-founder of Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), Geller led the charge against the “Ground Zero mosque,” fanning the flames of fear and hatred. Geller and her Muslim hating partner-in-crime, Robert Spencer, falsely insinuated that those involved mosque’s financing might be tied to terrorists. They even described it as a monument in celebration of the 9/11 attacks.
Geller has named her blog AtlasShrugs, after a book written by her idol, Ayn Rand. For those of you who do not know the philosophy behind Rand’s 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged, it celebrates pure capitalism unrestrained by government regulation or social welfare measures. This philosophy apparently fits with Geller’s previous life. Prior to becoming infected with Islamaphobia, Ms. Geller was a wealthy Long Island housewife who owned a couple of luxury car dealerships with her then-husband, Michael Oshry. They divorced in 2007.
In 2007, she joined an anti-Islamic group called Stop the Madrassa, whose goal was to stop the opening of a secular public Arabic-English school in Brooklyn called the Khalil Gibran International Academy. While the school did eventually open, the group did manage to force its founder, Dhabah Almontaser, to resign after smearing her as a radical extremist.
If you want some crack-head, whacked out conspiracy theories, this is your woman.
Pamela Geller: Asshat. And, quite frankly, a dangerous one at that.
What would Asshats be without Newtie? (And he has been on a tear of late.) His latest vomit spew started with the proclamation that child labor laws were “stupid” and that we should do away with them. In fact, he proposed that we replace the school janitors with poor school children whose parents are on welfare so that they could earn money and take some pride in their school. Apparently, Gingrich thought his insight into poor folk was so good that he expanded on it today during a speech, saying that poor children are basically lazy and don’t know how to work. Here’s exactly what he said:
“Really poor children, in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works, so they have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day, they have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it is illegal.”
I don’t know how you feel about this, but I think it’s bigoted and vile…especially when it comes from a washed up, intellectually and factually challenged, egomaniacal serial philanderer. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the guy who should be commenting on the ‘values’ of others, work-related or otherwise. This is Newt Gingrich we’re talking about, the man Rachel Maddow exposed as a direct mail scam artist last December, and someone who is still working on understanding the concept of marriage and fidelity. Oh, and speaking of that, here’s how Newt explained away his infidelities:
“There’s no question at times in my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.”
Really? It was driven by overworking because of how passionately he felt about this country? Just what kind of fools does he take the American people for? Oh, wait. He might be right. He appears to be leading in the polls among Republicans. The pre-election pendulum swings from one asshat (Herman Cain) to another (Newt Gingrich).
We’re talking about a bullshit artist who gets as much as $60,000 every time he opens his word hole in front of people. Yep, someone actually pays him that much money to serve up all that bullshit.
Newt Gingrich: MAJOR Asshat.
