The Watering Hole; Friday July 31 2015; This Weeks Nutcasearrhea

I was originally going to place the week’s dumb in descending order from least dumb to totally dumb, but since these’re all on a precisely equal plane, they’re listed in no particular order. Note that once again, the titles pretty much say it all. If you should decide to click on any one of the links, I do, once again, recommend keeping a barf bucket nearby.

Michael Savage: Donald Trump Is ‘The Winston Churchill Of Our Time’

Self-Proclaimed Prophet: God Using Donald Trump To ‘Expose Darkness And Perversion’

Pat Robertson: Gays Can Become Straight If They ‘Start Acting Like Men’

Alabama governor names public school-hating Christian fundamentalist to oversee public education

Michael Savage: Obama May Seek A Third Term By ‘Nullifying The Election’

Rick Wiles: Obama Will ‘Slaughter Millions Of American Resistors’

Anti-gay Oregon baker thinks he’s defeating Satan — but his bigotry is actually helping Satanists

John McTernan: Gay Pride Events Cause Earthquakes, Abortion Causes Hurricanes

Louie Gohmert: Tens Of Millions Of Americans May Die Due To Iran Nuclear Deal

Cruz: Obama And Clinton ‘Snuggle Up To Radical Islamic Regimes Who Hate America’

There, That’s ten. Should keep everyone busy for at least a minute. Meanwhile, to assuage my guilt for posting the above links, here are three photos of critters with brains, with functioning minds — and clearly not a Republican amongst them!

There is clearly a huge difference between critters with small brains and critters with small minds! But we already knew that, right? Right!

    • It’s been a while since the last one. I wish they could get on a regular schedule so we could keep up with them better.

      • I suppose its the political season that perks them up a little, as it has me. I dread thinking that the next election could be the last one I see, if I live that long!😯

  1. I find it plausible that God would use Trump to expose darkness and perversion, but that darkness lies in the minds of his supporters.

  2. Michael Savage: Donald Trump Is ‘The Winston Churchill Of Our Time’

    Donald Trump is America’s answer to Rob Ford.

      • Two things I’ve learned:
        When they’re crowded and want the furniture rearranged, do it.
        Second: Give them quality furniture so they can have a big party and share it with their sisters.

        I take a chemical and medication free approach to beekeeping.
        Bees have been here for millions of years.
        You’re not going to train them but, they will train you.

  3. That’s a shitlode of dumb ya gots there.
    Gotta wonder if Pasty Pat Robertson would include killing protected wildlife as one of his ‘manly’ activities?

    • Indeed. I’m sure there is NOTHING more “manly” than being bold enough to shoot a savage beast from “only” a couple hundred yards away. I think it might be even more manly to go hand-to-hand with, say, a protected rhino or Lion, but far as I know that option is yet to be tried. Guess the “real men” out there just haven’t thought to try it yet.

  4. How Fox News Made My Dad Crazy

    A new film produced by Golden Globe-winning actor Matthew Modine fires shots at Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and the right-wing media machine.

    In a new documentary unveiled this week at Michael Moore’s film festival, one filmmaker takes aim at the “vast right-wing conspiracy” Hillary once put on blast. The Brainwashing Of My Dad also warns of how generations of Americans have been tricked into an angry cult-like devotion to a new conservative lord and savior: Rush Limbaugh and Fox News.

    Her case study? Her own dad.

    Jen Senko first noticed the change in her father sometime during the 1980s when he picked her up from the bus station for a visit home. On the road they passed a Hooters. That’s when the once-gentle Kennedy Democrat and family man started railing against the “feminazis” for protesting the chicken ‘n’ cleavage-slingin’ chain.

    Michael Moore’s film festival. First it was George Soros, then Tom Steyer , and now Michael Moore (again) poking RWers in the eye (not to mention Bloomberg pissing them off about guns and fast food drinks). They just can’t have ALL the billionaires and it galls them.

  5. Gotsta love this one.
    Bloomberg video (don’t watch unless you have taken massive dose of antacid) looks like a TrumpDuck lovefest.
    Reality is, most of the panelists are not Trump supporters…

  6. Speaking of Nutcasearrhes —

    Fox News Warns Of New Threat To America: The War On Urinals

    O’Reilly’s Guest Bernard McGuirk

    bemoaned that “their [M to F transgender] goal is to have gender-neutral locker rooms, gender-neutral bathrooms” and that “they want to get rid of urinals.” O’Reilly then suggested that “Satan might be behind” the inclusive categories the University of California system is now offering for students’ gender identities.

    • Anyone that has ever been to a nightclub or any show for that matter in San Francisco realizes that no one pays any attention to the figurines on the door.
      You go to the bathroom that is least crowded with the shortest line.

  7. Thank you for putting the pictures up and then seeing a new Margaret and Helen post. Some deed had to shine bright on amongst all the bile from the GOP and the Putinists on the tweeter here.

    • Those gals know what is what…

      “The way I see it, you can use your bible to justify hatred, and you can use the First Amendment to justify your right to express your hatred. Or you could pull your head out of your ass and realize that you pick and choose which bible verse to quote with as much ignorance as you pick and choose which Republican Presidential Candidate to nominate.”

  9. Just in case there was any doubt. The Huckster has openly declared that he “wouldn’t rule out” using the U.S. Military against Americans in order to impose his personal religious beliefs on our entire country. That’s just so fuckin’ wrong that there really should be a new Amendment to the Constitution to ensure that religious freaks like The Huckster are never, ever, allowed to hold any position within the government whether elected or appointed.

      • I doubt pHuckabee’s able to comprehend anything that doesn’t say “holy bible” on the cover — and even that’s gotta be tricky for the stupid shit.

      • He just ignores the bits that are against theocracy. Let’s see. That leaves him with the second half of the second Amendment and a strange reading of the first that goes something like; “America was given to white Christians by God and the rest of ya’ll can go pick cotton”.

      • That’s about what it sounds like. Sigh… The really, really, depressing part is that some of the very same people who are freaking out about “Obama sending troops to take over Texas” will listen to The Huckster and scream and cheer and break down in tears of utter joy at the prospect of The Huckster using the U.S. military against American citizens they don’t like and can’t understand.

  10. Oh btw, Dylann Roof pled not guilty.

    “No, your honor, it was another bugeyed skinny white asshole kid with racist rantings and a tragically stupid bowl haircut walking around with guns and trying to start a race war. This whole town is thick with sick little imbeciles like me. I bet you can’t walk out of this courtroom and bump into 10 of me before you make it to the nearest Starbucks. Why, it would be like trying to dodge raindrops, your honor. Tragically dimwitted, ugly little racist douchebag raindrops.”

  12. It’s not that hot here.

    Iran city hits suffocating heat index of 165 degrees, near world record

    Wherever you live or happen to travel to, never complain about the heat and humidity again.

    In the city of Bandar Mahshahr (population of about 110,000 as of 2010), the air felt like a searing 165 degrees (74 Celsius) today factoring in the humidity.

    Although there are no official records of heat indices, this is second highest level we have ever seen reported.

    To achieve today’s astronomical heat index level of 165, Bandar Mahshahr’s actual air temperature registered 115 degrees (46 Celsius) with an astonishing dew point temperature of 90 (32 Celsius).
